Brandon George – SportsDayDFW, DallasNews.com

"Much has been made about the addition of middle linebacker Rolando McClain. But the glue of the Cowboys’ linebacker corps this season has been Justin Durant. Dallas’ starting weak-side linebacker played all 63 defensive snaps Sunday against the Giants and showed up all over the field. He had a team-high tying eight tackles. But the way he played in the fourth quarter helped put the Giants away.“He’s a terrific linebacker. Everybody is seeing it right now,” Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said. “He is our captain. He’s a heck of a ball player. He’s aware, heady, fits our system to a T.” Click the title to read more…"

Scout’s Eye: Terrell McClain Plays Up To His Potential; Other Thoughts

Bryan Broaddus – DallasCowboys.com

"IRVING, Texas – Having spent the day with the tape of Cowboys-Giants, here are some of my biggest impressions from Sunday. From the press box, my initial thought on Jermey Parnell was that he struggled in the first half but managed to play better in the second. The tape showed that he was actually more consistent than I believed he was. The tackle for loss that Mathias Kiwanuka had on him was a mental error instead of a physical one. He made the mistake of pass setting instead of run blocking, and that allowed Kiwanuka to take a hard inside charge to the ball and it left Parnell out of position to handle that move.Other than that assignment error, I would say that he was assignment-sound and did a solid job of handling Kiwanuka during the game, as well as Jason Pierre-Paul for a snap. He was physical in the running game and was good working with both Zack Martin and the tight ends. In that final drive, he had a key cut off block that allowed DeMarco Murray to bend the ball back to the outside for a 17-yard gain to help seal the victory. Click the title to read more…"
