With one preseason game under their belts, the Cowboys are now preparing for the Denver Broncos on Saturday night, who have already strolled into Dallas and practiced with the Cowboys in the blistering Texas heat. Here’s a couple players to keep and eye and ear out for that played well against the Colts.
Even though this mountainous addition to the offensive line played but a couple series last Thursday, there’s reason for excitement. Forget about what all the “analysts” have said about Davis being the biggest waste of free agent money this off-season. This guy was in all-pro form on Thursday night, and he is exactly what the Cowboys are looking for at right guard. You see the play when his helmet came flying off and he still found time to pancake a poor Colts lineman? Waste of money? You kidding me? This guy will play well this year and earn a trip to the Pro Bowl.
Many of you may not have known his name before last Thursday’s game. But you very well do now. This guy was all over the place making plays from his corner position. This former third round pick out of Montana State is certainly making a bid for a roster spot. After some shaky years with the Packers, the team that drafted him, Thomas was looking for a fresh start when he signed with the Cowboys, and it looks as though he just might get it.
This tight end may have gotten lost in the mix during training camp, but he certainly showed up during the first preseason game. After spending all summer overseas in NFL Europa, Curtis proved he could catch the ball, hauling in a couple long passes. He is still battling with fellow tight ends Adam Bergen and rookie Rodney Hannah, but look for his performance to help him make a bid for the third tight end spot.
