The Choice cut

PITTSBURGH -- Marion who? Cowboys rookie Tashard Choice is putting on a show in the second half. His 50-yard catch put the Cowboys in position to make it 13-3 late in the third quarter. Romo dumped the ball off to Choice, who made Steelers safety Troy Polamalu miss before getting free down the right sideline.

The Cowboys' biggest concern with Choice was whether he'd be able to pick up the blitz. But as long as he has the ball in his hands, it's not much of an issue. I did see him do a great job in the first half when Steelers linebacker James Harrison tried to leap over him. Choice waited patiently and then delivered a blow to Harrison as he came down.

By the way, no one loves a challenge like Wade Phillips. He just won another one that changed an incomplete pass to an 8-yard sack by Jason Hatcher. End of the third quarter.
