Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips has stepped away from the ledge and decided not to play most of his starters in Thursday's final "tune-up" against the Miami Dolphins. I think it's the only decision that makes much sense.
But Phillips did make the mildly surprising announcement that third-team quarterback Stephen McGee will start the game and likely receive the majority of the snaps. The Cowboys have seen McGee show some improvement the past couple weeks and they'd like to take an extended look.
Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is well aware that the club let Matt Moore get away when they tried to sneak him to the practice squad a few years ago and he doesn't want to make the same mistake with McGee.
