It was an easygoing Day 1 of workouts for the Dallas Cowboys Monday at their training camp in Oxnard, California.

OXNARD, California — We talked about this last year when the NFL and the players union signed that new collective bargaining agreement, but this is the Dallas Cowboys training camp now that got Wade Phillips fired.

This isn't "Camp Cupcake" anymore.., it's the whole cake.

There was a walk-thru on Monday morning, then a longer practice in the afternoon — but no pads.

They'll do the same on Tuesday; then Wednesday, after a walk-thru in the morning, it'll be pads in the afternoon.

And after one practice in pads, on the fourth day, they rest.

Three days on the field, and then a day off.

Jimmy Johnson's teams in the early 90s and Tom Landry's teams before that worked... uhhhhh... a little harder.

They won Super Bowls back then, but maybe they were wrong.
