Cowboys dial down, rest stars before facing Steelers

IRVING, Texas -- Going into a tough final month that will determine whether the preseason NFC favorite Dallas Cowboys even make the playoffs, coach Wade Phillips unveiled a new strategy Wednesday: rest.

Phillips sent home Terrell Owens and four other 30-something starters before the full-squad workout and said he might keep doing it.

"I just think it's the time of year ... we need to take a look at resting some of these guys, take them off their feet," Phillips said. "It'll keep them fresher this time of the season. That's something I felt like we needed to do."

Owens, Greg Ellis, Flozell Adams, Zach Thomas and Marc Colombo went to meetings in the morning, a walkthrough of this week's game plan and a film session. Then they left, even though the entire team was off four of the previous five days and weren't in pads on the one day they did work.

Phillips said the time off before Wednesday was irrelevant. He's concerned about limiting how much practice time those guys log Wednesday through Saturday.

"It doesn't matter what they did before. It's the work week," he said. "If they work this week, then their legs are going to be a certain way this week. ... You still get worn down the same amount if you spend that time on the field this week, in my opinion."

On the practice report, their absence was described as "not injury related -- resting veterans." That line might appear the next few weeks, too.

"It's a good possibility," Phillips said. "We did it some (last season), but not as much."

Phillips' approach is sure to draw scrutiny considering Dallas (8-4) is f!ghting for a wild-card berth in the playoffs and will have to really earn its way in. The Cowboys' next three foes currently have the NFL's three best defenses, starting with the top-ranked Steelers (9-3).

Dallas also is trying to overcome a growing tradition of failure this time of year. The Cowboys haven't had a winning record over regular-season games played in December and January since 1996, which also was the last season they won a playoff game. It's the longest stretch without a playoff win in franchise history, heightened by a flop after going 13-3 under Phillips last season.

Heading into the final month on a three-game winning streak, Dallas likely needs a 3-1 finish to secure a wild-card berth. Going 2-2 might be enough, but there's a risk of getting squeezed out on tiebreakers.

So, with players needing to be at their very best down the stretch, Phillips is gambling that practicing less will help. He also prefers sitting guys all at once rather than spreading it out "because of the practice schedule and what we have to get accomplished."

"There are certain things we have to get accomplished throughout the week," he said. "Missing certain days would not be good in some cases."

Boys are serious, but their schedule is too tough for them to make the playoffs IMO. This Pittsburgh game will basically make or break them..if they lose against Pitt there's no way they're beating ALL of the Giants, B-More and Philly and thats what it will take for them to have a shot at the post-season.

I was talking about the Chargers game.


But I think the Steelers will handle the Boys too anyway.

not mad at this, maybe its time to try something a little bit different from previous seasons. we always back into the end of the season, maybe the older heads are feeling the wear and tear in december.

should be a great game nonetheless, too close to call right now esp with ware and barber coming off injury.

They like the stat 42, they're number one in sacks. They don't like the stat 8, number of times Romo has been sacked. Good for 3rd.

They don't like the stat 40, we're number two in sacks. They dislike even more the stat 33, the number of times Big Ben has been sacked. Good for 31st.

They don't like the stat 103.2, Romo's #1 QB ranking and 21 TDs, good for 4th and his 8 INT's, good for 9th. They dislike even more the stat 80.0, Ben's #23 QB ranking and his 13 TDs, good for 11th and his 12 INT's, good for 27th.

What they dislike more than any of these stats is the fact that of all the QB's they will have faced so far this season, Romo can make them pay for that blitzing better than any. He doesn't run, he buys time and that's a recipe for big plays against blitzes. When they come, they better get there fast because this receiving corps is better than any they've faced.

But when its all said and done, it will be a good game.

It's gonna be tough, but the 'Boys O-Line > the Steelers' O-Line

And Ware > Woodley and Harrison
