Cowboys O-Line Will Test Buccaneer Defense

Try these guys on for size:

Flozell Adams (6-7, 338), Kyle Kosier (6-5, 305), Andre Gurode (6-4, 318), Leonard Davis (6-6, 353), Mac Columbo (6-8, 318).

Those are the Dallas Cowboys offensive linemen.

Big, aren't they?

If you wondering what the Dallas offensive game plan might be, wonder no longer.

They're going to pound the football on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That's a NFC East-size offensive line. It's the size line the Bucs will also see when they play the Giants, Eagles and Redskins.

Look for Tony Romo to give the ball to Marion Barber. When Barber needs a break, it will be Felix Jones. It's a mighty challenge at least.

The Buccaneers sought to beef up their defense when they drafted burly Roy Miller and Chris Hovan put on another 20 pounds. They'll need all the muscle they can muster.

This Dallas line is big and strong.

Good news for the Bucs is that it is also an "older" line. Most of these guys are well into their 30s and perhaps the afternoon temperature and humidity in Tampa might slow them down a bit.

But don't count on it.
