Let's start with the strange stuff first: Earlier today I was accused by another journalist on his twitter feed of exposing my source when I posted back-to-back blog items that included general manager Jeff Ireland -- the first post on the fact he would look for Dez Bryant today, the second on him asking me if I had my 53-man roster.
I wrote in the first post that Ireland did not want to discuss the Bryant matter. In today's post I said he asked me for my 53-man roster. These are two separate issues. Indeed, Ireland would not talk to me about Dez and then we talked about other things, among them his comment about my 53-man roster.
The journalist for the Palm Beach Post seemed to make the leap that because Ireland talked to me about the 53-man roster, he must have talked to me about Bryant. Not accurate. I have addressed the matter with this journalist and he has apologized, so the matter is closed far as I'm concerned.
Now onto tonight:
There is a live blog. I'm having some technical issues, but we shall plow on.
For the Dolphins, Vontae Davis will not play. I do not know the exact reason for this. He has been practicing. I'm told he did not break any team rules. So we'll find out after the game. Jason Allen will start in his place.
Rookie Micah Johnson will get his big chance tonight at inside linebacker. He will start for the injured Channing Crowder.
For the Cowboys, most of the starter will not play!
Tony Romo, Marion Barber, Roy Williams, Doug Gree, Leonard Davis, Andre Gurode, Miles Austin, Jay Ratliff, Keith Brooking, DeMarcus Ware, Mike Jenkins, Anthony Spencer, Jason Witten, Felix Jones and Terence Newman will not play.
So the Dolphins had better kick some butt, especially when their first-team players are on the field.
