"Five To Watch"
Upcoming Mini-Camp Has Intriguing Storylines To Follow

IRVING, Texas - Dallas needs some sports excitement.

With hockey season and pro basketball ending earlier than we all expected around here, this area needs something from its major sports teams to get excited about.

Whether or not this weekend's three-day mini-camp at Valley Ranch will do the trick, this at least marks the first organized practices for the Cowboys this off-season and the first under new head coach Wade Phillips.

While there will be no official games played, or even full uniforms being sported, the Cowboys' first official practices of the off-season - scheduled Saturday through Monday - should be enough to get the juices flowing for a while.

The Cowboys don't head for training camp in San Antonio until July 23, and the first regular-season game is not until Sept. 9 when the New York Giants come to town in a nationally-televised Sunday night game.

But until then, this three-day mini-camp will have to do. And there are plenty of things to watch out for.

Here are five things we'll keep a close eye on out here at The Ranch:

New Offense

All eyes will be fixed on new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and how the former Cowboys quarterback who has only two years of coaching experience under his belt conducts this new offense. While it definitely will be too early to see if he's in over his head, or even if the offense will flourish, we'll at least get to see some of the new looks and wrinkles he has in store.

And while we study his new offense, it will be good to see just how quarterback Tony Romo handles it. Romo said he's spent countless hours this off-season trying to pick up the new scheme and said he is excited about running through the formations and plays for the first time.

And it's more than just a new offense, but virtually a new offensive staff as well. Tony Sparano, the team's offensive line coach and a.ssistant head coach, is the only holdover a.ssistant on that side of the ball. The rest of the staff has been hired by Phillips, aside from Jason Garrett, once a candidate for the head coaching job who was hired by Jerry Jones before Phillips was named head coach.

Anthony Spencer

The first-round draft pick always gets a lot of attention. And while the Cowboys have usually held a mini-camp strictly for rookies and first-year players in the past, it's unlikely Spencer will be overshadowed, even though he'll be surrounded by the veterans.

While he won't be taking down quarterbacks this weekend - at least the Cowboys hope not - Spencer's performance in the one-on-one blocking drills can be relevant. And since this camp will include the entire roster, look for some intriguing battles early on when Spencer lines up against three-time Pro Bowler Flozell Adams, or even right tackle Marc Colombo and backup Pat McQuistan.

Also, pay attention to where Spencer lines up in this defense. While the Cowboys will likely move him around at several spots, he's expected to begin at outside linebacker. And since it took Ware some time to adjust from college defensive end to this position, we'll get the chance to see how much of a transition this will be for Spencer.

Free Safety

Of course, free safety. Why wouldn't we be looking at this position? It's been a major discussion for three seasons now.

This year, the Cowboys signed veteran Ken Hamlin to a one-year deal. The former Seattle Seahawk looked like a star in the making before suffering a season-ending head injury six games into the 2005 season. While he played all 16 games for Seattle in 2006, the Seahawks chose not to give him a long-term deal.

Neither did the Cowboys, who by signing him to a one-year deal can see firsthand if he indeed can return to the level that made him one of the top young defensive players in the game just three years ago.

But the Cowboys also might want to give second-year safety Pat Watkins a decent chance to win the job. Watkins started nine games last season, including the final three, and the playoff loss to Seattle. The Cowboys also have Keith Davis, a special teams ace who has started 21 games at free safety in the last two years.

Greg Ellis

Now don't expect the veteran linebacker to be doing anything with the rest of the team this weekend, and probably not before the start of training camp. But Ellis, who is recovering last November's season-ending torn Achilles' against Arizona, should be continuing his individual rehab on the practice field this weekend.

While he won't be the center of the action, expect some eyes to occasionally glance over in Ellis' direction. Don't be surprised if that includes owner Jerry Jones, too. While Jones and Phillips said Ellis' injury was not the reason they drafted Spencer, there has to be some kind of doubt whether the 31-year-old Ellis can make a full recovery from an injury considered one of the hardest to overcome.

Ellis has even wondered out loud again this week what the future holds for him here in Dallas, which certainly isn't the first time. But first things first, he needs to get back healthy. And this weekend, we should at least get some gauge of how close he is to that comeback.

T.O.

What kind of things-to-watch-for list would there be if Terrell Owens wasn't included? If T.O. is out there - and by all accounts he's expected to appear at this mandatory mini-camp - he'll always been watched.

It appears the Cowboys are indeed prepared to fund his $3 million roster bonus due in June, which would a.ssure that Owens will return next season. Jones has said all off-season, and most recently during draft weekend, that Owens will be returning to the Cowboys next season.

Had the Cowboys thought differently, they might have changed their draft tune and selected a receiver, especially with so many still available in the first and second rounds. Instead, the Cowboys drafted only Washington's Isaiah Stanback, who played more quarterback in college.

As for Owens, who has been attending several throwing sessions with the offense here at Valley Ranch this off-season, it will be interesting to see just how much he'll be able to do, considering he's undergone two surgeries on his right ring finger this off-season. Owens has said he should be 100 percent for the start of training camp, but he could be involved in some capacity during the first of these two summer mini-camps, trying to get a better grasp of the new offense.


**************
Of course, that's probably not even half of the juicy stories to follow here over the next few months. The look of Phillips' new 3-4 defense; the kicking battle between Martin Gramatica and rookie Nick Folk; and simply an up-close look at massive guard Leonard Davis will be a few more things to keep an eye on.

Again, it's only practice out here at Valley Ranch. But they are the first practices. And for this time of year, they should be entertaining enough.

Owens back on the field at Dallas minicamp

NFL.com wire reports



IRVING, Texas (May 12, 2007) -- Terrell Owens once again caught some of his Dallas Cowboys teammates and coaches off guard.

But instead of stirring controversy off the field, Owens surprised them by participating in the team's first minicamp.

The wide receiver has been recovering from two offseason surgeries on his right ring finger. New Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips said earlier in the week that Owens would not practice in the team's first gathering since he replaced Bill Parcells in February.

"I'm surprised but I can understand why he wanted to come out here," Dallas owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "He got caught up in the enthusiasm of being with the team, the excitement we've got about our team. I'm sure he just wanted to go ahead and catch some passes."

In drills against Dallas' first-team defense, Owens beat cornerback Terence Newman and hauled in a nicely thrown deep ball from Tony Romo.

Owens was laughing as he ran through the end zone after the play.

But he wasn't in the mood to talk with reporters. During the team's media availability with players, Owens walked out of the locker room, saying only, "I have nothing to talk about."

This was a far cry from last season, when he talked about everything from not knowing the play book to his role in the offense.

Owens' tumultuous first season with the Cowboys also included an accidental drug overdose and more than a dozen dropped passes as he battled the finger injury.

"I don't know that he's any more or less motivated," Romo said. "Anytime you feel like you're going to be a big part of the offense it's going to motivate anybody."

Owens is due a large roster bonus June 1, and Jones has repeatedly said Owens will be back in a Cowboys uniform this coming season after catching 85 passes for 1,180 yards in 2006.

The practice was further indication Owens will be on the roster when the season kicks off.

"We weren't sure how far along he was going to be," Phillips said. "We were hoping at one time that he might be ready this camp. We thought it might have been the next camp or even training camp. But he is almost ready as far as catching the football."

Phillips said Owens had been working out and catching footballs at home in Miami.

Romo added he wasn't astonished Owens was back on the practice field so soon.

"He never surprises me," Romo said. "He's a hard worker and he's been doing the things to get himself ready to go this year. I'm pretty excited about it. He looked pretty good."

"Souped Up"
New Offense Taking Aggressive Approach


IRVING, Texas - Aggressive is the word being thrown around The Ranch of late.
That's what the guys on defense have been saying ever since they knew Wade Phillips would be taking over not only as the Dallas Cowboys' new head coach, but also as the guy dialing up the defense - that the former San Diego defensive coordinator's version of the 3-4 is more aggressive than what they have been playing the past two seasons.

And that perception certainly hasn't changed watching five mini-camp practices over the past three days, including the final two out here on a muggy Monday. Offenses, beware, the Cowboys are attacking this year.

But now, after getting a look at what the Cowboys will be doing on the other side of the ball, how Jason Garrett will be running this offense heavily influenced by offensive line coach Tony Sparano, last year's play-caller, that same word - aggressive - seems to be spilling out again.

From the quarterback.

From the wide receivers.

Even from Sparano, himself.

"From a style standpoint, very similar," said Sparano, who probably is one of the better judges around on how last year's offense and this year's compare. "I think we'll be more aggressive than we were - but this isn't splitting the atom, this isn't that different.

"The thing people forget is we were pretty good on offense last year."

As evidenced by the team scoring 425 points, more points than a Cowboys team had scored since 1995 and fourth most in club history. And by totaling 52 touchdowns, most since 1983 and fourth most in club history. And by netting 3,836 yards passing, most since 1985 and third most in club history.

Not to mention, finishing fifth in the NFL last year in offense, averaging 360.8 yards a game - highest since 1995 and second highest since 1983.

So it is not as if Garrett must come in here to reinvent the wheel, or devise some exotic scheme to fool defenses or mask this team's offensive deficiencies. By quick count, they do have four Pro Bowl players returning from last year, and that fails to include Julius Jones, the team's first 1,000-yard rusher since 2001, Terrell Owens, the team's first receiver to grab 13 touchdown passes in a single season since 1966, and Terry Glenn, one of two guys Phillips singled out here Monday afternoon for his mini-camp performance - Jason Witten was the other one - using the word "outstanding" when talking about the 12th-year veteran.

But obviously what Garrett does and what former head coach Bill Parcells did won't be all the same. Under Parcells, the Cowboys were more of a play-action passing team. Under Garrett, they will be more straight drop back. Under Parcells, the Cowboys wanted to use more of a two-tight end offense, though reverted to using the fullback toward the end of the season instead. Under Garrett, from what we've seen the past three days, the fullback is back in the offense fulltime.

"I think we won't be quite as safe with things," says quarterback Tony Romo. "I think we'll push the envelope a little bit more. With Bill, there was only so much he'd allow (Sparano) to put in the package. J' will push the ball down the field.

"We're going to be a little bit more like the Cowboys in the 90's, a power running game and throw the ball down the field."

Or as Sparano says, "More vertical."

But do not gloss over the "power running" part. Garrett's offensive roots are embedded in what he learned from Norv Turner and Ernie Zampese, and while those two offensive coordinators might be best remembered for their passing attacks, neither got too far away from the running game. Each might have coordinated that Cowboys passing game centered around Troy Aikman, but during their time with the Cowboys, Emmitt Smith rushed for more than 1,000 yards seven consecutive years, including posting the team's single-season high of 1,773 yards under Zampese in 1995 - a season Garrett witnessed.

Balance would be a word they preached, one imbedded into Garrett's maiden foray into coordinating after just two years of coaching.

As for how they plan to run the football, just think of how the Cowboys basically utilized Smith all those years he was earning the title of NFL all-time leading rusher. Phillips said they would like to best utilize Jones' particular skills, and to him, that means running a lot of draws, lead draws, stretch plays to the perimeter and screens.

"Just get him outside, get him (in space) where he can cut," Phillips said.

If what the Cowboys have been doing over the past five mini-camp practices is indicative of things to come, this also will mean throwing a lot of those swing passes to the running back and the fullback, reminiscent of those days gone by with Smith and Daryl Johnston.

This then would mean the starting fullback, and whichever guy earns the backup spot, not only must be good lead blockers, but the ability to catch the ball running those swing passes to the side will be vitally important.

That much with this somewhat new offense will be obvious. There will be subtle changes few will even realize, such as terminology. The Cowboys used names for routes last year. This year they will use numbers.

Last year the Cowboys could bring two plays to the line of scrimmage, and change into the best one after reading the defense. This year using audibles will be more readily available.

Last year who was running certain routes for certain plays was basically static. This year, the play-caller can more easily change the receivers' routes on the spur of the moment to counter what a defense might be doing.

"There will be flexibility in there," Sparano said. "If we wanted Terrell and Terry to run different routes (last year), you had to tag a different name to it. Now it's numbers, so you just change the number. This gives the play-caller (Garrett) more flexibility."

There also is expected to be a more concerted effort to get Owens involved in the offense, along with asking him to do more of the things he's comfortable doing. Garrett met with Owens in Miami when he first got the coordinator's job, sort of picking the receiver's mind, finding out his likes and dislikes.

Owens description of the offense went beyond aggressive.

"Explosive," was his word. "I think there's going to be some opportunities to get everybody involved and to move me around to get me more involved than I was last year, and I'm looking forward to it...

"We talked about how he was possibly going to use me, and the way I've been used throughout the course of my career. I think we kind of got away from that last year, and this year the offense is kind of going to be wide open. A lot of guys are going to catch a lot of balls and we're going to move people around a little bit. I may play a little tight end, you never know.

Owens also recognized the ease of switching up routes and the offense becoming more versatile with Garrett's numbering system being used instead of Parcells' system loaded with names.

"(It's) a little bit more simple than a lot of memorization," Owens said. "There's not a lot of guess-work trying to memorize what this guy does, or what route complements the other routes, so it's going to be wide open. I think with the flexibility we have with the tight end position and the receiver position, and with Patrick (Crayton), who can move around a little bit, it's just gonna make this offense a little bit more explosive. Anything is possible.

"Jason's going to try to utilize the weapons that we have, and as a receiver that's what you want."

That's what the players want. That's what the defensively-oriented head coach wants. And for sure, that's what the fans want.

All sounds pretty logical, which might be the best way to describe what the Princeton-grad is trying to create:

A logical offense, one big on splitting defenses, not atoms.

I didn't hear anything today, but when he was on BET he said Parcells "coached" him too much, trying to tell him what holes to hit...making him a robot. Yet he forgets that Parcells traded out of the 1st round into the 2nd to pick his @$$, passing up the best back in the draft...Stephen Jackson...ANY other coach would've picked Jackson if they needed a back...that ungrateful bum.
