Snap To It!

With nods to the special teams and Mike Mickens and Jason Williams, the most troubling aspect of last week's Cowboys' pre-season loss to the Raiders was the most elementary of plays: The snap.

After a season in which Andre Gurode sent back off-speed eephus pitches to Tony Romo in the shotgun, the first day of training camp in San Antonio included three botched center-quarterback exchanges. On the third one - I swear - head coach Wade Phillips turned his back to the play and ... giggled.

Funny, until you get into the first pre-season game and backup Jon Kitna fumbles not one, but two snaps.

I know the Cowboys have a lot of problems. And I know - at least I think I know - that Kitna is an upgrade over Brad Johnson. But it's really difficult for me to take this team's "change" seriously if they can't friggin' hike the ball.
