For some reason people have not been able to understand the Cowboys' stance on taking one kicker to training camp in David Buehler, who has never attempted a field goal in an NFL game.
With a team viewed as a Super Bowl threat, why would they take such a stance?
It's easy: because they can right now.
Jerry Jones is aware of some of the angst regarding the team's kicking situation, but here's his explanation:
"I've seen them missed real good by guys that have made kicks in the league before," Jones said. "I'm being cute, but Buehler is capable. We're going to have these preseason games to work on it and we don't want to clutter the water. We want to go in that direction and if we have a concern toward the end of the things, then you'd look at it differently."
Translation: they'll look at a veteran kicker later in camp if Buehler struggles.
