Jenkins beats out Scandrick as starter

Orlando Scandrick announced that Mike Jenkins will start Sunday against the Broncos. It was supposed to be Scandrick's turn to start in the co-starter rotation set up by Wade Phillips before the season. But, a combination of Scandrick's tough game against the Giants and Jenkins' better play against Carolina, including an interception, had the coaching staff re-thinking the starting job.

"As of right now, they named me the starter for the week," Jenkins said, "and I’m just going to keep doing what I was doing, keep my same mentality and go out there and play."

Jenkins' prize is covering his Florida pal Brandon Marshall and another solid receiver in Eddie Royal.

Scandrick, as he typically does, stood front and center, made no excuses and vowed to improve and earn his shot at starting again.

"I didn’t play as well as I wanted to when I got my opportunity," Scandrick said. "The NFL is all about timing and opportunity, so I’m going to have to wait my turn now."

re.... to Vince...I don't expect much from Sam and Miles...Its hard enough getting Romo to pass to Roy and Crayton!!!! Tony seems safer passing to Witten and the backs.

Question: Has anybody seen Miles and Sam? Are they still receivers on the Cowboys? Didn't they have a great camp?
Now with the lights on they disappear.
