A Win is a win is a win, and with that, the guys look back at the 20-19 Thanksgiving victory over those pesky Dolphins. The Cowboys got the win at the wire and pulled it out on a last second kick by Dan Bailey. Steven was so nervous that he did not watch the final kick. He feels it better to have the skills guys punch it into the end-zone rather than leave fate on the end of a kicker’s foot. Bailey has now made 26 straight FGs, but that final kick might have earned Steven’s respect. The Big D secondary is still struggling, but what is missed is that Mike Jenkins did not play and this is a different team without him. The Dolphins took advantage of Orlando Scandrick, Alan Ball, and Frank Walker
The news from Valley Ranch is mixed as Miles Austin is still not practicing, but the team has not ruled him out for Sunday’s game. Jeff wants Miles to take his time and be strong for the playoffs. The team has had to part ways with Akwasi Owusu-Ansah to make room for FB Shaun Chapas. Chapas is coming in to play FB due to Tony Fiammetta’s undisclosed illness. Mike Jenkins is back at practice and he should be ready to play this weekend. WR Dez Bryant has been handling most of the punts during practice today with Owusu-Ansah now gone.
The guys peak ahead to the Week 13 matchup at Arizona. First things first, it looks like QB Kevin Kolb will start for the Cardinals this week. The Cowboys need to put teams like this away and not let them hang around. Go on and ride RB DeMarco Murray – Murray has shown he IS an every down back give him the ball 25-30 times. Cowboys have done a good job of cutting down on turnovers, now they need to focus on the penalties
