On Saturday night, the NFL inducted six deserving players, including quarterback Brett Favre, into its Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Meanwhile, in Oxnard, California, more than 2,423 miles away, the annual Dallas Cowboys Blue and White scrimmage took place. Thousands of fans piled in for the highly anticipated showing. However, the festivities in Canton were televised on ESPN and the NFL Network. They overshadowed what was truly a treat for any Cowboys fan. That being said, below is a breakdown of the Cowboys scrimmage.
Breakdown of Dallas Cowboys Blue and White Scrimmage
Televised live locally on KTXA channel 21, the Cowboys scrimmage turned out to be an in-depth look at an actual Cowboys practice session hosted by resident broadcasters Bill Jones and Bryan Broaddus. The duo provided great commentary throughout the telecast as they alluded to a few position battles and exchanged some ideas regarding the recent injury to backup quarterback Kellen Moore, who suffered a fractured ankle about a week ago.
Seven on Seven Session
Practice started with a spirited seven on seven session. Quarterback Tony Romo flashed a bit of brilliance when he connected with wide receiver Terrance Williams on a tight sideline pass. Williams snared the pass in bounds, and finished with a sweet toe-tap. Dez Bryant hauled in a pretty-looking deep ball from Romo over Brandon Carr shortly after Carr had broken up an earlier pass, knocking Bryant’s helmet off in the process.
