Cowboys' re-signed fullback says lead blocker brings 'attitude' to the run game

Fullback Tony Fiammetta rejoined the Cowboys this week after being cut last week, a move that got the Cowboys off the hook on guaranteeing his base salary for the season.

But no one had to explain that to Fiammetta.

“It’s my third year in the NFL, so I’ve seen a lot of things,” he said. “You’ve just got to understand it’s a business and it’s all about winning, so you can’t take anything personally. You’ve just got to make the best out of every opportunity you get.”

And he knows what’s expected of him.

“I think having a lead blocker in general just brings an attitude to the run game,” he said. “We’re a personal protector for the running back.”

thanks nice post,and thanks sharing!!!!

This WEAK run ATTACK is exactly why we lost lastt week !!!

Choice gets arm tackled case he can,t run through a wet paper sack

Then Garrett loses confidence so we line up in the shot gun on 3rd and goal...

Romo DESERVES a good O-Line

Romo DESERVES a good PWR RB

Romo DESERVES a DEFENSE the PROTECTS LEADS

This TEAM has to LEARN HOW TO CLOSE so there is no need for late game HEROICS
