  • Jacques Taylor of the Dallas Morning News is taking a wait-and-see approach with the '09 Cowboys. He says it's not in his job description to be optimistic about their chances.

  • Clarence E. Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram doesn't think Patrick Crayton had an agenda when he made a comment about Tony Romo and Jason Garrett on Monday.

  • Randy Galloway of the Star-Telegram and 103.3 ESPN says Patrick Crayton better watch his mouth: "Although thinly disguised, that's obviously one last ode to Owens from his pal Crayton. And one more backdoor shot at his boss, offensive coordinator Garrett, and his quarterback, Romo. Big mistake, Patrick. Maybe even a fatal career mistake, at least as far as a local football career goes."
