Dorsett's found a good Barber

Cowboys Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett was on hand Tuesday for a North Texas Super Bowl committee news conference. (Fellow reporters, welcome to the downtown Sheraton Hotel! Had no clue it was still in use.)

Both Dorsett and Emmitt Smith talked about the Cowboys' three-headed running attack with Marion Barber, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice. You have to love Dorsett's enthusiasm:

"When I watch him play, I've never seen anybody in any sport that has any more passion for what he's doing than Marion Barber," Dorsett said. "I just love to see the guy, but I think he sometimes puts himself at a disadvantage. He takes too many hits in the wrong places and exposes himself.

"Now, Felix Jones. Felix Jooooooones! Lemme tell you now. That man right there is the truth. I mean, that's a great change-up for a defense. He's a good-sized kid, he's got great speed and he can take it the distance from anywhere on the field. I'm looking forward to see exactly how this plays out for them."

Smith provided this bit of wisdom: "So, Marion and Felix, I've only got one word of advice: Don't get hurt."

But who's counting, Emmitt?
