JAE ROSS - DAYTONA BEACH, FL: After Mike Jenkins' disappointing season, does Orlando Scandrick have a legitimate chance to push him for a starting job this year?
Nick: I don't know how legitimate it will be, but he'll have some kind of chance. But I doubt that it will be like it was in 2009 where they tried to rotate the two every day. Even then, it seemed like Jenkins got more reps and eventually won the job outright and finished the season in the Pro Bowl. I think they will likely compete, but I still think Jenkins is better to start because with Scandrick, there are some match-ups that will be unfavorable for him against bigger receivers. I think Jenkins matches up better with most receivers.
Rob: If Jason Garrett wants competition at every position, then yes, it should be possible for Scandrick to win the job. Right now he's playing maybe 40-50 percent of the snaps as the slot corner, and although he's been up and down, he played very well down the stretch. The question is whether there will be a full camp and preseason to really gauge everyone's performance. I do think Jenkins will rebound from an overall poor season, though.
RAY HOLLIDAY - DENVER, CO: Do you think having Tyron Smith lining up to him instead of Marc Colombo could make Leonard Davis a better player in 2011?
Nick: That's not a bad point. I think it's something that very well could make a big difference. But on third-and-1 at the goal line, athleticism isn't a huge factor there. It's almost leverage, technique and the will to push the guy off the ball. Davis hasn't been as great at doing that as you might expect from someone that looks like him. I do think Smith can help Davis and probably vice versa, too. But overall, Davis needs to just play better on his own as well.
Rob: There could be something to that. Davis and Colombo played better down the stretch last year, but the right side of line generally had problems in space against speed rushers. The Cowboys hope Smith's athleticism will immediately shore up that problem. We'll just have to see. But Davis would need to be the one helping Smith with the calls and some of the pre-snap things.
Mailbag: Four 1,000-Yard Players On Offense?
Has the idea of two 1,000-yard receivers and two 1,000-yard backs ever crossed you guys' mind? Looks possible at this rate
Mailbag: Not Afraid Of Third-And-Long Anymore?
This year, we seem to routinely overcome first-and-15 or first-and-20. Do you think that is showing the maturation in Kellen Moore's play calling?
Mailbag: Tough Roster Decisions Ahead?
I'm awaiting the return of some key players but I'm also starting to worry that we simply won't have enough roster spots. Am I over thinking it?
Mailbag: Cowboys Still Peaking? Try Diggs At WR?
Can't remember having more fun watching a team come together. Don't we still have a lot of room to grow and improve?
Mailbag: Kellen Moore's Future? Grier Update?
I was interested in your thoughts of the Cowboys being able to keep OC Kellen Moore past this year. When the season is over, he could go quickly.
Mailbag: What Is Jaylon Smith's Cowboy Legacy?
In light of the decision to release Jaylon Smith, it's hard to know how to feel about such a unique career. From the remarkable comeback story to now, what do you think Jaylon's legacy is?
Mailbag: In Game Decisions? Player Management?
Did you take issue with some of the calls on Sunday, like declining the facemask penalty in the second quarter? Or am I just nitpicking?
Mailbag: Should Micah Parsons Play DE Full Time?
It's way early, but Micah Parsons looks like the best defensive end in the 2021 draft. How are they not going to use him on the edge full-time going forward?
Mailbag: More Jabril Cox? Concerns With Carolina?
With Keanu Neal possibly out another week and Micah Parsons likely to stick it out at DE for a bit longer, can we expect to see Dan Quinn start to mix in Jabril Cox more?
Mailbag: Was Clock Management An Issue Again?
I was confused as to why we did not call one timeout in the last minute and a half of the second quarter against the Eagles?
Mailbag: Cowboys Get Lucky The CBs Were Gone?
Do you think the Cowboys actually got very lucky this year when the two corners they wanted were off the board, therefore getting Micah?
