Cowboys rookie cornerback Bryan McCann set a franchise record when he returned an Eli Manning interception 101-yards for a touchdown. McCann has been getting a lot of love from the fans, understandably, but the undrafted rookie isn’t satisfied yet.
A reporter suggested to McCann that his performance last week was a “story book finish.” The SMU rookie responded, “I wouldn’t necessarily say all that,” McCann said. “It’s definitely an honor to be recognized in the NFL. It feels good. But it’s one play in one game. I’ve definitely got to be more consistent and hopefully make more plays as the season progresses.”
Instead of focusing on his good play, McCann did what every professional should do and he offered up an honest critique of his performance. He pointed out that he was responsible for a long Hakeem Nicks catch that went for a touchdown, but was ultimately called back. He was also flagged for pass interference. It is refreshing to see a player focusing on getting better.
