Q: Is there a mentality or philosophy that you apply going into a game against a rookie quarterback like Dak Prescott?

A: We've only seen what we've seen on film and he's put some good tape out there. He's still a rookie, but he's still a good player so we're going to see what he does on Sunday.

Q: What do you remember from your matchup against Tyron Smith?

A: I just remember we lost that game.

Q: But you had a pretty good showing, right?

A: But, in my mindset, that really doesn't even matter. The thing that matters at the end of the day is getting the W.

Q: As far as playing a rookie QB, generally the theme is you blitz the heck out of them. Do you expect a lot of that?

A: I'm just waiting to see what Spagnuolo gives us, that's all.

Q: Are you anxious to see what this defense has?

A: Honestly, I'm anxious to see what this overall team has, basically.

Q: What do you know about the rivalry between these two teams?

A: I know it's pretty big. Especially, with the whole division basically. Everybody has their own home-field advantage. I didn't know this was the opening matchup the past several years, or it's every year. I'm just glad to be a part of it.

Q: We often talk about Dallas as having maybe the best offensive line. From your perspective, what is it about them that makes them the best...if you agree with that.

A: They do have a good offensive line. They have a whole bunch of maulers. Theyíve got a couple of Pro Bowlers. They've got a good offensive line, that's why they get that name.

Q: Is it more about their physicality or their technique that's so good?

A: They're very cohesive. They work as a unit, together. And they're very physical.

"The thing that matters at the end of the day is getting the W."

So pumped to watch OV and JPP get after it. Two outstanding all-around Ends in their prime.
This line is going to be

that gets interviewed has nothing but praise for the other team. Seems like we're not giving anyone fodder for the bulletin board.
I hope OV and JPP roll like tanks,

and we crush them. But even if they don't dominate and we don't get a W, I hope BBI will remember that the Dallas O-line is really really good.
