Wahle: Dallas' schemes different this year

Hang around Panthers guard Mike Wahle long enough and you'll usually learn something interesting. Today someone asked him about watching game film from last year on the Cowboys, who play Carolina here Saturday night.

"It's really tough to look into years past," Wahle said. "They have a little bit different scheme. Each year even though you might be running the same defense or offense, you're always into something a little different. So I don't really find it too helpful to go back, unless you want to look at a specific player."

The conversation rolled on, turning to the upcoming contest in Bank of America Stadium.

"Hopefully we'll have some Carolina fans in the stands," Wahle said with just a hint of a smile. "I know that when Dallas comes to town, they get a lot of fans here. So hopefully we can even it out."

Wahle also talked of a jammed finger suffered in last Sunday's game, but there's no sense mentioning which hand it belongs to because Cowboys defenders just might take aim at that one. He wasn't complaining; it's one of those injuries that O-linemen seem to end up with all the time, and if you do complain your linemates never let you forget it. -- Stan Olson

I would really like a better understanding of how OL help sell the play-action pass. Do they come off of the line in the same way they do when it's a run? If so, what measures do they take to ensure that they don't go too far down field (five yards) to not get an illegible receiver penalty?

WAIT A MINUTE!!! You mean to tell me Chris Harris got beat out by a dead guy (Sean Taylor) for a pro bowl roster spot??

SYRPIS your comment on Sean Taylor and the pro bowl are a BAD attempt at a joke. The man was killed...and earned a pro bowl spot. Your attempt to make light of the situation is classless.

Sean Taylor was the NFC's best Safety before he died and was leading in interceptions and leading the Pro bowl votes for his position.

Anybody see the Cowboys players talking about Matt Moore? One of the linebackers didn't even remember him, and got him confused with "The dude from North Carolina" (Matt Baker), who was their third-stringer LAST year. But, behold! Matt Moore was LOVED by one TERRELL OWENS, the supreme evaluator of quarterbacks and girlfriends.

And berated by one vacuous ejaculator of irrelevant football knowledge.
