    Brandon Carr didn't think he had anything to prove. But many "experts" weren't quite sure the CB known for his man-to-man skills would transition well into this new zone scheme, 4-3 look in Dallas. But week 3 should serve as proof that he will do just fine. Carr registered 5 tkls, 2 for a loss, a sack and 2 INTs. One in the endzone and his 2nd late in the game to stall a Rams' comeback attempt.

    But the story for Dallas moves on to a backup. RB Lance Dunbar, filling in for the injured D. Murray, had his best game as a pro: 20 rushes for 130yds and a score while adding 10yds receiving. His TD run of 62yds was a thing of beauty. Starting left, he cut back to the right at the line, turned it upfield behind a block by RG T. Wharton and outran the DBs to the endzone. "This is the kind of effort we need from everyone on this team, starter or not", said the Coach/GM/Owner after the game.

    The Rams seemed intent on getting their ground game going, using the speed of HB D. Richardson to get to the edge. But after a couple of good runs, the Dallas defense adjusted and was able to lock down the speedster, forcing the Rams to go to the air to move the ball. In the 3rd, down 24-10, Bradford found success through the air as he hit Pettis and Givens for TDs, tying the game up. But the Dallas defense, once again, adjusted. Back-to-back sacks by D. Ware in the 4th coupled with INTs by Carr and B.W. Webb kept the Rams from scoring. On a crucial 4th and inches, with key target J. Cook double-covered, Bradford tried to hit T. Austin across the middle. But the pass was batted down by M. Claiborne, giving the ball back to Dallas and securing the win.

    Dallas now has to pack their bags and head west to take on the San Diego Chargers. Stay tuned...
