@BeAwesomeLikeMe : What are Phillip Tanner's chances of making the 53-man roster?
Rob:Tanner looked great Sunday night, but he can't be off the bubble just yet. DeMarco Murray's making the team, and say what you want about Tashard Choice, but the Cowboys know he can produce when needed. Comfort level there. I'm not sure they can keep four backs, and Lonyae Miller is still a candidate despite a quiet two games. So to me, Tanner's got to keep this up, especially on special teams. That's where he can really separate himself. I do agree that it'll be tough to get him through waivers now after a national TV game.
Nick: retty good, I would think. He's starting to stand out more than Lonyae Miller and if he keeps playing well on special teams then he'll be a lock to make it.
@angeenator :What affect has Rob Ryan's scheme had on the pass defense so far? It doesn't look any better.
Rob: It hasn't, except in the red zone. Done a better job there except for that miscue on Randy McMichael's TD. It would help to have at least one of the starting corners back (Terence Newman or Mike Jenkins) right now, but the pressure hasn't been there up front. What you're seeing is exactly what Rob Ryan said afterward: a unit that's playing slower because they're thinking too much. That was a concern for me going into camp because his scheme isn't something you can perfect overnight.
Nick: I would hope it doesn't look any better. If these first two games looked better than last year then the Cowboys would have a serious issue at cornerback. I'm guessing the two starters - Newman and Jenkins - will help the secondary tremendously.
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?
Mailbag: The Stat-Line Schultz Needs For New Deal?
What type of season does Dalton Schultz need to have to secure a long-term deal with this organization?
