Terrell Who?



    Dallas Cowboys' Patrick Crayton looks through the shield on his helmet after cleaning it during the team's NFL football training camp.

    In the longest completion of Tony Romo's career, Patrick Crayton caught a streak and took it 80 yards to the house.

    Crayton was the third Cowboys receiver to catch a touchdown today, joining Miles Austin and Roy Williams. And suddenly, those big-play concerns--vis a vis, the departure of Terrell Owens--are looking slightly misguided.

    What's more, the timing of the play was pretty perfect. Dallas had, only a minute or so before, given up a Derrick Ward touchdown on a drive that saw a successful, but ultimately pointless, Wade Phillips challenge, and a wholly questionable, kind of ticky-tacky illegal contact call on an interception.

    The aforementioned receivers, along with Martellus Bennett, Jason Witten and Felix Jones (to name a few) will be charged with the task of filling T.O.'s shoes. The very early returns are looking promising for Dallas.
