“The game at Minnesota was highly boring in the first half. We did not play up to ourstandards and I was a little disappointed about that, but proud of the way that we came back and finished it. It was something that really allowed us to show the fans and the league that we’re never going to roll over. It showed the heart that we have knowing that we had it in ourselves, we just had to take it one play at a time and get it done.
“It goes back to that same thing that I said when we were down in Tampa. In that first defensive series, they had the kickoff return back to the 30-yard line and no one was really concerned. We just went out there and played and held them to a field goal like we should have and took the game over from there.
“The Dallas offense definitely has a big passing attack. Then Felix Jones is a guy that I know personally and he is definitely a tough runner. He looks very small, but he has a big engine and he can definitely play to hurt you. We always go into every game wanting to stop the run, make them a one-dimensional team and get after their quarterback, because if their quarterback can’t throw the ball, those wide receivers and Jason Witten, the you ng guy Dez Bryant, they’re null and voided if he can’t get the ball to them.
“I really don’t care about Romo’s injury, that’s his own problem. If I hit it, I hit it, if I don’t, I don’t. As long as I’m disrupting him and making him feel uncomfortable and worried about where I’m at, then I’m doing my job.”
“Their offensive line is a lot different from what they had last year. They had a lot of big, heavy, strong guys. This year, they only have two guys returning with Doug Free and Kyle Kosier, who I’m actually going against. Then they have two rookies and I think a second-year guy at center. It’s something that they have to continue to work at together and it will be a learning curve for them, as well as for us to watch film and figure out what they’re doing and see what their weaknesses are.
“I’ve played at Cowboys Stadium twice before. We played there last year and I played there as a senior in college, it’s a beautiful stadium, I like playing in there, but for my own sake, I need to come out of that stadium with a win. I’m tired of coming out of that stadium with a loss after a good game.
“I think the key to this game is starting fast and to not have to have a comeback game. I think this will end up being a close game in some respect, but I feel that we also have an opportunity to not make it close; it’s just a matter of whether we want to do that or not.”
