Last week, it was reported that the Dallas Cowboys set special rules for their troubled wide receiver Dez Bryant.A midnight curfew.Well if they aren’t in place as reported, maybe Jones should reconsider.As ridiculously strict and odd as they may seem, I think the rules would be a good move by the Cowboys. The team has millions and millions of dollars invested in the talented receiver. If they want to keep him despite his troubles, they should do anything in their power to keep him out of trouble.People will probably argue that there’s something wrong with “babysitting” a 23 year old man.

And there were some players who agreed with him and there were some players who didn agree with him.
In the NFL, you need to be able to count to 24 as in the 24 votes required to get a proposal passed and I don’t think this overtime initiative will get that many. A previous two possession proposal got just 18 votes, and another one about moving the overtime kickoff spot got fewer than that. A lot of owners are very resistant to making any changes, much less dramatic ones..
Gurus are usually relegated to baseball pitchers and golf swings, but if there is such a thing as an offensive line guru, it’s McWhorter, Penn State’s new line coach. The former Texas offensive line coach wasn’t named the 2008 assistant coach of the year by AFCA to garner free air time on the Longhorn Network.
