Mailbag: Austin vs. Former Team; LG Situation


What was your impression of Connor Williams from the Seahawks game? If Xavier Su'a-Filo is healthy, who would you start against the vaunted interior of the Rams? - LANDON CABELL

Bryan: Williams didn't play poorly. If he had to start again I don't see that as an issue. With that said I believe the staff would start Su'a-Filo if he was available. 

Rob: When Su'a-Filo has been healthy these last few weeks, he's been the starter. And it's no secret the Rams have a lot of power and strength on their defensive front. But Williams did play well against Seattle. It might come down once again to how functional Su'a-Filo can be on that sprained ankle this week.


Do you see Tavon Austin having a huge game against his former team this Saturday? Maybe a huge punt return? - MARTIN BUENDIA / IRVING, TX

Bryan: It's funny: the only reason why Austin got a chance to return those punts was because Beasley was injured earlier in the game. I am sure that he will get an opportunity to do some damage to his old team and it would be fitting if he could have the success he had against the Seahawks.

Rob: No doubt in my mind Austin will be motivated, but that's also part of his personality. He said after the Seattle game that he's heard critics call him a first-round bust. The Cowboys brought him in from L.A. to do exactly what he did on Saturday night: make big plays in space. He still has special quickness and elusiveness. Keep in mind Jason Garrett said they'll monitor him this week as continues to come back from that groin injury.
