 Mosley Mailbag begins in 3-2-1
posted 8 years ago

The American people have spoken. You want me to read your e-mails more than once a week, so I've hired a focus group to look into this and see if it's something we should consider. But seriously, I appreciate the fact that NFC Beast readers are the most prolific group of the NFL Blog Network. It's with great pride and some trepidation that we once again try to clean out my Mailbag. Many of you (from the 214 area code) have demanded more Cowboys coverage, but I'm planning to spend a great deal of time on the other three teams in the division this week. Thanks for your eloquently phrased questions, but more importantly, for your honesty. The Mailbag has allowed us to meet on a quasi-personal level, and that's something we can build on. Surfing through your (favorable) comments is an edifying and lasting experience. I promise to only answer one (perhaps three) Big 12 questions in this edition. Let's begin with Isaac from Maryland. Isaac, what's on your mind this morning? Really liking all this Chris Horton coverage, including your recent column. One article I read, might have been yours, stated that his interceptions have covered up his coverage mistakes on the field. (The Witten TD last week). Besides his interceptions, how is the rest of his game? Mosley: As founder and president of the Chris Horton fan club, rest assured that we'll continue to monitor the young man's progress. I'll admit that I only watched the play you mentioned twice but it seems the Redskins were worried about that wheel route (I love a good wheel route) Cowboys rookie Felix Jones was running down the left sideline. Marcus Washington got locked in one-on-one coverage with Witten, and that's a bad place for him to be. Witten sells him on a double-move, touchdown Cowboys. Witten was actually open several times in the second half, but the Cowboys had launched their T.O. appeasement program. Listen, Horton will make a lot of mistakes. At one point, the Redskins had to pull him off the field against the Cowboys. But as Bill Parcells used to say about certain players, the ball always seems to find Horton. You need that type of player on the field. He's not going to be a great coverage guy, but there's not a lot of strong safeties who fit that description. Horton's pretty solid against the run, and he looks a bit lost in coverage at times. But if defensive coordinator Greg Blache keeps getting takeaways out of the rookie, he'll be willing to put up with the mistakes. Just a really neat kid who shares my passion for "Dexter," although don't send me an e-mail about the first episode. And I mean it.
