6-Pac Challenge

I was watching an episode of "Hard Knocks: Training Camp With The Dallas Cowboys" when I saw a remarkable things.  Adam Jones, the cowboys cornerback and punt returner was catching punts during practice, but he did not drop the footballs he caught.  At one point he had five footballs in his hands before he was able to coralle in the 6th ball.  Catching and holding onto six balls takes some talent and Pacman must have practiced this sometime before, maybe in Tenneessee.  

Wide receiver Patrick Crayton then attempted Jone's 6-Pac challenge and only made it to four balls.  He tried it later in the week and was able to match Pacman's total of 6.  This episode was full of Pacman coverage.  It also showed how Adam Jones was guarding T.O. for a majority of the practices and how heated the battle truely was.  I believe that this type of competitive practice will make both of those players better and the Dallas organization.  Going against the best in practice every day not only allows back-ups to learn from the best but it gives others the opportunity to rise up and play at the level or Tony Romo, Terrell Owens, Jason Witten and Marion Barber.

With the Cowboys no hitting policy in practices, Pacman's six pac routine was the most entertaining thing I had seen during the episode.  CLICK HERE to see Pacman's 6-pac challenge on youtube.
