RUSHING CONCERNS? Despite the Cowboys' 21-20 Monday night win over the Eagles, there is concern about a season-low 58 yards rushing on 24 carries. Especially when you consider that 26 of those yards came on a fourth-quarter carry by Marion Barber.
"When we had opportunities, we didn't take advantage," center Al Johnson said. "We missed blocks, the backside of runs. We didn't have much in
cutback lanes. We definitely need to play better all around, just because we didn't run the ball very well."
ROY WHO? They share the same name, the same agent and the same financial
adviser. Now, Dallas safety Roy Williams and Detroit receiver Roy Williams meet
again Sunday on the football field.
However, the two have already been confused by at least one member of the media this week.
"The Tony Bruno show called me yesterday," Detroit's Roy Williams said. "They're like, 'And now we're sitting here with the guy that caught the game-winning interception from Donovan McNabb ... Roy Williams. Can you believe that Donovan McNabb threw you that ball?' I said, 'Well, this is Roy Williams from the Detroit Lions, but I still can't believe Donovan McNabb threw that ball.'"
JAMES IMPRESSED: As the Cowboys collected themselves after Monday night's win over the Eagles, linebacker Bradie James paused to reflect on the history the team just made.
"We haven't swept the Eagles since 1998," James said. "I was in high school then."
Anybody else out there feeling old?
