My story: Retiring lineman Jacob Bell has some ideas for helping playing safety

I admit, I had barely heard of Jacob Bell before Tuesday. Now, I’ll always remember him. The veteran lineman became the first player to change his life following the death of legendary linebacker Junior Seau. Valuing his safety, Bell stepped away from the game.

The Dallas Cowboys (and their fans) had high expectations coming into the season. But the team’s inconsistent play has resulted in a 3-2 start, which has many pundits pondering the job security of coach Wade Phillips. According to The Dallas Morning News, owner Jerry Jones insisted this week that Phillips is not in danger of losing his job, and compared the Cowboys’ woes to those of one of Dallas’ division rivals during the 2007 season: “Two years ago the Giants were seemingly not in disarray, but they were in trouble,” Jones said. “It was also absolutely expected that something was going to happen with the coach, [Tom] Coughlin. … Well, that same year they won the Super Bowl.
