Preseason offers just a glimpse of your starters, but it proves valuable because it provides a much larger picture of your back ups and rookies. Oftentimes, you can spot the up-and-coming star in preseason games.
With that said, the Dallas Cowboys take on the San Diego Chargers at 10 p.m. EST, at the same time a UFC PPV fight starts. It might be hard to turn away from something that costs me $50 to watch, so I will probably just record the game. No live blog tonight, guys.
However, here is what we should keep an eye on during this game: Felix Jones and Tashard Choice should get some carries. It will be interesting to see what the Cowboys do if Choice outplays Jones in the preseason. These guys won’t be facing cream of the crop talent, but someone has to show signs of greatness.
As for the secondary, it will be exciting to see Adam Jones in action as a Cowboy. I will also have my eye on Evan Oglesby, who according to this blogger, has had a great camp.
As for receivers, we all want to know who is going to solidify that third receiver spot. Will it be Sam Hurd? Miles Austin? Isaiah Stanback? I am putting my money on Hurd, but the Cowboys did interchange Hurd and Austin quite a bit last year, and they could do it again. Stanback has not looked great in camp, according to reports, so we’ll see. I wish I knew why Jerry Jones loves this guy so much. We also get to see Danny Amendola try and make the team.
