Second-year Cowboys player David Buehler wants you to know he’s not your average kicker. He beat cornerback DeAngelo Smith in a footrace last training camp, which helped cause Wade Phillips to ban “challenge races.”
“He was talking a bunch of trash, so I just shut him up,” Buehler told KESN-FM, via the Dallas Morning News. “I knew I had
the speed. It made me a little bit of capital, as well. So, there was a
little bit on the line.”
Buehler went on to say he thinks he could beat Patrick Crayton, Tashard Choice in a race, and would dispatch linebackers Keith Brooking and Bradie James “pretty easily.” He even passed along a story where he kinda-sorta out-benched defensive end Igor
Olshansky, at least on their first attempt.
Kickers are usually seen and not heard, but we like Buehler’s moxie. Quarterbacks should not be the only ones allowed to have moxie.
