Rookie guard Bill Nagy got favorable review from Chargers game, will remains with first team for now

 Rookie guard Bill Nagy acquitted himself well in Sunday’s preseason game against the Chargers.

So much so that Coach Jason Garrett said he will remain with the first team “for now.”

“(Bill) Nagy did a nice job,” Garrett said. “I think our offensive line played fairly well against (San Diego’s) first unit. I think it’s still a work in progress for each of them individually and then working collectively. I did think we ran the ball well, I thought we protected Tony (Romo) well and Nagy was a part of that.”

Nagy, a seventh round pick out of Wisconsin, started against the Chargers after rookie fourth-round pick David Arkin started the preseason opener against the Broncos.

"I'm just showing up," Nagy said. "Whatever they tell me to do. I'm just showing up and competing, and whatever happens, happens."

The Cowboys are waiting on veteran Montrae Holland to return. He has been sidelined since the first week of camp because of a bad back and poor conditioning. The Cowboys have also talked of looking at centers Phil Costa and Andre Gurode at guard.

Of course, if Nagy continues to perform solidly the shuffling at guard may end.

"Just like anything else, the more you do something, the more you get comfortable with it," Nagy said. "That's what's kind of been been going on here. Just getting more comfortable with the snap count, the speed, everything like that. ...It's been a good opportunity."

The O Line seems to FINNALY be shaping up well. This was the one single thing that was always lacking and therefore hindering the offense and putting the defense in bad spots. That will hopefully be turning around. A good OL is where it all starts.

Good stuff. I want Nagy or Arkin to really fill in and add some youth to this oline.
