Interesting Notes Before Dallas Heads Into Detroit

So this week is finally here for many of the Cowboys’ players who have had this game highlighted on their schedule. It seems Jon Kitna made some disparraging remarks last year after their win over Dallas at home the final game of the season. Specifically calling out LB Bradie James and CB Terrence Newman as some players they felt they could take advantage of before the game.

This has provided James, not Newman as much, some added incentive going into this week’s game in Detroit with more riding on it for the Lions than the Cowboys, but still meaningful in terms of winning the division and playoff seeding for Dallas. Much like last year, Dallas could survive a loss but really should win, so any extra momentum is a good thing. Thank you, Jon Kitna.

Terrell Owens turned 34 this week and had a big party, but don’t worry fans, it doesn’t appear that his age or his partying have slowed him down any this year. He already has surpassed last year’s numbers and he and QB Tony Romo have put on quite an offensive show combining for the NFL’s second-ranked offense even without deep-threat receiver Terry Glenn.

There were some minor injuries suffered in last week’s win over Green Bay, T Marc Colombo strained his right ankle and Terrence Newman and Kevin Burnett both experienced some minor injuries to their knees and ankles but no big problem for either player who both participated in practice and aren’t listed as doubtful or questionable for Sunday’s game.

As for the aforementioned Glenn, there is still hope he can return sometime this year. Possibly he will be able to contribute in the playoffs as he hasn’t started running routes or actually practicing with the team yet. CB Anthony Henry is still recovering from his high ankle sprain that has limited him to only playing in the dime and nickel formations the last several games.

The defense, led by LB Bradie James plays a much different version of the 3-4 than last year and his numbers are making him quite a candidate for the Pro Bowl this season, so I hope to watch him achieve a little revenge against a slumping Jon Kitna this Sunday.
