Here are five observations on the Dallas Cowboys, based on their Aug. 9 practice in Oxnard, Calif., and their Aug. 13 preseason game against the Cardinals in Tempe, Ariz.:

Forget about Drew Henson's competing with Drew Bledsoe for playing time. Henson is having a hard enough time beating out Tony Romo for the backup job and it appears he is heading into the season as the team's third quarterback. During the offseason, coaches worked with Henson on his delivery, but he is having some issues. Occasionally, Henson lets a little bit of that baseball wrist action get into his delivery. When that happens, the ball comes out awkwardly.
