Quotes from recent post-training camp practice interviews:

  • Jason Witten

(On John Phillips) “Obviously John’s been playing out of this world. It’s great to see.  He takes it from the meeting rooms to practice–individual and then into the team drills.  He’s playing really well. . .He’s one of the hardest working players on the team.”

(On Doug Free) “He’s so consistent.  He plays so hard.  I think he really embraces the role he has. . .I think the tenacity he plays with is contagious for a team.  He’s always trying to make the extra block.”

  • Patrick Crayton

“I’ve been the underdog for seven years.  Ever since I put on a Cowboys uniform I’ve been an underdog.  So all I do is look up.  I’ve never been able to look down.  I look up all the time.”

“Just keep working at it and do what you’re supposed to do and give it your all, and everything will pay off.”

  • Orlando Scandrick

“I’m one injury away.  If anything happens to Terence or Mike, I would be the guy, so I have to prepare like I am the guy.”

(On Alan Ball) “He breaks on the ball and covers a lot of ground.  He is going to be big for us this year.”

(On his broken hand) “It may be stiff for the entire season, but I’m ready to do whatever it takes to help this team win ball games.”

(On pre-game speeches) “It has no impact on the way we play.  The way we play is the way we practice during the week.  If we prepare well, we come out and play well.  If we prepare bad, it shows.”

  • Marcus Spears

“We gotta create more turnovers.  We need to get started faster.”

  • Jason Garrett

“We like Dez.  What we are seeing from Dez is what we thought we’d see when we evaluated him.  He’s a very talented football player, but more than that, he has great passion and enthusiasm for the game.  He loves to play.  He’s a good young man, working really hard. . .It’s fun to coach him and be around him.  He has a long way to go.  He has a lot to learn about what we’re trying to get across to him as coaches, but he comes to work everyday.”

  • Sean Lee

(On Keith Brooking) “I’ve been watching him and mimicking him because he is an unbelievable player and a guy I want to be like.  He’s the pinnacle of what I want to be.”

“There’s no room for mistakes in the NFL.  You take a false step in college and you can make up for it.  You take a false step here–the linemen are too fast, the running backs are too quick.”

  • Dez Bryant

(On pad-carrying issue) “I shouldn’t have to say anything.  You have been watching the same thing I’ve been watching.  I’ve been doing the right thing, and I’m going to continue to do the right thing. . .Ya’ll are trying to put me and Roy against each other.  That’s not going to happen.”

  • Felix Jones

(On adding extra weight)  “I feel like it is an advantage for me.  I just need to keep working with it. . .Last season, I averaged about 216 (pounds).  Now it is about 220.”
