Nice. We would love to hear from you on what is said. Also, there have been threads on this message board concerning nick names for the defence. I was watching the news on nbc tonight and they were talking with Robaire Smith who said they already gave a nickname to themselves. I believe he said it was "The Rock" Anyone else see that segement?

only nickname I liked that someone mentioned for our offense (haven't heard any from the defense yet I am not sure about nicknames until we prove ourselves) is the Gulf Coast Offense.. I hope Kubiak puts his spin on the offense and we make a name for ourselves here

Sick of Cowboys coverage!

Is Robert Jones (ex-cowboy LB) (and if memory serves me) going to do the preseason games again.. I remember seeing him on TV for the texans doing interviews at one point.. was tough to watch him talk pregame and stuff

yep, better than nothing. Nice live action shots to watch. a few interviews of no value whatsoever.

got to see some training camp video though, so two thumbs up.

Did they manage to get some Texans stuff in between Titans training camp news?

Speaking of this, in HEB today here in Austin I saw a Vince Young Titans display by the front door where a "lucky" customer will win a trip to a "Vince Young pro game" as they call it. Geez, bring back the Cowboys stuff.

AFTER next year you may be wishing for Vince Young/Titans display, as I understand it America's Most Wanted (oops meant to say Dallas Cowboys) are returning to San Antonio in 2007.

no titans coverage at all actually. about 5 minutes of Texans to open, followed by 5 minutes of Cowboys camp. then Longhorns info. Back to Texans camp for a wr the Texans have that is an ex-Longhorn player, but didn't recognize the name actually.

ended with some Longhorn's stuff.

not a bad show overall. Serious lack of an actual informed interviewer, but better than nothing.

If you dont have the NFL Network, y'all need to get it. Its has everything you need during the off season and even more good stuff during regular season.
I am loving the fact that they are advertising here on the radio and in the papere to girls fans by saying " If you want to follow the Cowboys all season tell Time Warner you want the NFL Network"!

Here in Houston we have TW cable, which has not picked up the NFL Network
option and from what I hear doesn't intend to do so in the near future. I'm all
over it if TW gives me the option !
What do you have in Austin, or are you using dish-sat equipment ?

Up here in Austin just yesterday I was at walmart looking to see if there was any Texans gear. All I saw was a few Cowpies shirts, several Vince Young Titan jersey's, and some shirts with VY on the front in his Titan uniform. So naturally I went with a new Budweiser shirt.
