Cowboys Blue-White Scrimmage Highlights

DC.com has posted a video with a couple of minutes of highlights from Sunday's resurrection of the traditional Blue-White scrimmage. They caught Dez Bryant's catch-and-run TD, lots of Lonyae Miller and Kevin Ogletree, and plenty of Tony Romo celebration. Check it out here. Rob Ryan said after the scrimmage that he was responsible for some of the breakdowns because he brought back some calls that the defense hadn't been practicing since early on in camp (what was that, eight days ago?).

For a little more play-by-play, Blogging The Boys' Dave Halprin has a thorough report on on the scrimmage here. He also shared some player specific impressions, including:

-- A few guys made an impression. Lonyae Miller was running hard, and he showed some good moves in the open field. He was impressive. Also, Alex Albright has made plays every practice I've seen, and he continued to do it in this scrimmage. Granted, it usually came against the second or third-string, but still, he's taking advantage of his opportunities.And for the first time that I can remember, Brandon Williams made a series of good plays.

-- Stephen McGee still seems slow in making decisions once he's dropped back in the pocket.

Ryan also made note of Albright's performance in his post-scrimmage comments. Miller seems to be catching everyone's eye again this year. He's been one of the first questions asked in a few Jason Garrett press conferences, including his post-scrimmage one

Halprin's observation on McGee is exactly what I've always worried about with him, and it's disappointing that it still seems noticeable this summer. I don't think that anyone questions whether he has the intelligence to handle the position, and no one has ever questioned his dedication to football, but processing what you see and reacting to that is part developed skill and part innate talent, and I fear that McGee doesn't possess that talent to the degree that Romo, for example, does.
