  it takes only 2 days in san antonio to realize what a waste of time training camp has become  -   not just for the cowboys   -  but all nfl teams now
 
   the combination of a 16 game schedule  -  a salary cap  -  the limit on players a team can have available means the old days of actually practicing in camp are long gone
 
   cowboys owner jerry jones said it at his opening press conference   -   the goal of this camp is to be healthy in september   ...   that's quite a goal  --  
 
   now they have bigger goals  -   and have every reason to think the super bowl is a valid one this year  -   but for now   ....  the goal is to stay healthy  -   and that means   ...   no pads on day 1  ...   no hitting on day 2 or any other day  ...   pass routes with very little defense  ...   and thousands of fans cheering every completed pass
 
    i'm just not 1 of 'em  ....    a couple of weeks tops to tweak a thing or 2 and let's play the games that count
 
wake me in september
