Four Questions with Cowboys Gab

This week I exchanged a few questions with David Quinn, Senior Editor of about the clash between the Rams and the Cowboys in week 7.  The Cowboys were all over the national news this week and I was eager to get David’s point of view on this week’s game.  Note: Some of this may become out of date quickly as Tony Romo is pondering fighting through the pinky pain and playing against the Rams.

Thanks to David for playing along with me.

EDIT: I also answered four questions for David.  You can find that here on CowboysGab.

1 – With the acquisition of Roy Williams, what difference do you see him making for the Cowboys offense this year and against the Rams in general?
A:  I think he will be a tremendous help to the passing game and a great compliment to Owens, but as for the Rams game I don’t expect him to have much impact.  He is too new to Dallas’ offense, although similar to the Lions, and then there’s the lack of Romo right now.

2 – With the Cowboys two starting corners out against the Rams, can Anthony Henry and Mike Jenkins match up against Torry Holt and Donnie Avery?
A:  That’s a good question, Jenkins has progressed quickly and will most likely win the starting position by the end of this season, Adam Jones or not.  Holt’s a great receiver and I expect him to do fairly well this game.  Henry hasn’t yet matched his play of last year but has the potential to at any time.  Should be fun to watch.

3 – Can Brad Johnson keep the ship afloat for 4 games until Romo comes back?  Does Brad Johnson have any ways he makes the Cowboys better?
A:  Johnson is certainly capable of keeping things intact for a few games, and I think it will only be a week or two with the way Romo is acting this week. He does help the Cowboys in the sense of protecting the ball and not trying to make the “big” play everytime.  He will get rid of the ball quicker than Romo does.

4 – With all the distractions the Cowboys face this year, can they hold it together to live up to their potential as the best team in the NFC?
A:  Most of the distractions are being created by the media, but it’s really just all part of being in the NFL.  I think they’ll work their way through it and be stronger by the end of the season and be ready to make a run at going deeper into the playoffs.
