ESPNDallas.com Cowboys beat man Calvin Watkins has an excellent "highs and lows" column now that the club has broken camp in Oxnard, Calif. Here's one of his high points:
"Undrafted rookies making an impact. Safeties Barry Church, Bryan McCray and center Phil Costa performed well in training camp and in the preseason," writes Watkins. "Church and McCray have done so well on special teams that it places special team standouts Pat Watkins and Sam Hurd on the roster bubble. At the start of camp, Travis Bright was the backup center to Andre Gurode, but he struggled and Houck decided to give Costa an opportunity and things worked well."
And here's his most intriguing low point:
Kevin Ogletree was inconsistent. Of all the receivers the Cowboys were looking for good things from Ogletree, who enters his second season out of Virginia," writes Watkins. "But Ogletree irked some members of the front office and the coaching staff with his inconsistent play. Ogletree did show signs of quality play but it wasn't enough. He can catch and shows good speed, but there were times he didn't fight for the ball enough and seemed to run sloppy routes."
OK, let's go watch the Redskins and Eagles plays some preseason football.
