@Cowboys_Chile:I liked how tight end Martin Rucker played Thursday. What are his chances of sticking around and what role could he have?
Nick:I still think he's a long shot. Let's not judge the fourth quarter of a preseason game because he's going to look pretty good as a receiving tight end. Can he block in the trenches and play special teams? Those two questions must be answered in his favor for him to have a shot.
Josh: I wouldn't reserve a spot for him just yet, because I think he's still clearly the fourth best tight end. If you went that heavy at the position, you probably don't keep a fullback, and I think Jason Garrett wants a true fullback. So while he may be improved, I don't give him a great chance to make the team.
@GodsSon1206 :What's the most significant change Jason Garrett made in training camp and preseason practice, and what effect will it have on the team?
Nick:The most significant change has been putting them in pads every day at 2:30. That's the change and he only hopes it will make them a more physical team.
Josh: Being in pads almost every day is the biggest tangible thing, but I think he has a totally different attitude and demeanor about him than Wade Phillips did, and his energy can rub off on the players.
Mailbag: Concern About Wide Receiver Overblown?
Could we live for a few weeks with our young, inexperienced guys prepared mainly for spread formations and riding the bench?
Mailbag: Seeing Any Progression From Bohanna?
How has Quinton Bohanna looked at camp? Haven't heard a lot about him. Do you see any progression from his rookie season?
Mailbag: Are Cowboys' Linebackers Best in NFL?
Do you think the Cowboys linebacker core of Micah Parsons, Anthony Barr and Leighton Vander Esch is the best in the NFL?
Mailbag: Who's Impressing On The D-Line?
I have noticed that the chatter of defensive tackle need has subsided for now. I feel we have a bit of everything at the position — a rotation of guys with size, athleticism, rush ability. How does the group look in pads?
Mailbag: Do The Cowboys Need A Veteran Kicker?
I'm pretty nervous about the lack of a veteran kicker on the team, even if it's just for competition. How do you feel about the kicking competition so far in camp?
Mailbag: Should WR Injuries Mean More Pollard?
When you couple James Washington's injury with the uncertain return date of Michael Gallup, that has to make Tony Pollard as a receiver as a more viable option than ever before. Do you agree?
Mailbag: Time To Hit The Panic Button At WR?
With Michael Gallup likely to miss the first couple of games and with James Washington breaking his foot, is there reason to be concerned with the lack of veteran depth at the WR position entering this season?
Mailbag: Players To Watch For In Pads?
Who are you most looking forward to watching in pads starting Monday?
