Rare Award.......Tyron Smith

Offensive linemen are almost always overlooked when the NFL hands out its Player of the Week awards. But Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith was too good to ignore on Sunday.

The NFL has named Smith the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after a great game against the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday. Smith had a great game individually (a highlight was the block that sprung Dallas’s longest run of the game, a 38-yard scamper by Joseph Randle off the left tackle) and the Cowboys’ offensive line had a great game collectively, as Tony Romo was sacked only once.

Smith is the first lineman to win an Offensive Player of the Week award since Chiefs guard Brian Waters got the award in 2004.

For all the grief Jerry Jones gets as a general manager, it’s worth pointing out that Jones has overseen the building of an excellent offensive line in Dallas, and Smith is the centerpiece. Jones took Smith with the ninth overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, and Jones locked Smith up with an eight-year contract this year. Smith is going to be a big part of the Cowboys’ success for a long time. Maybe even long enough to win another Player of the Week award, which the NFL typically only gives to an offensive lineman about once a decade.

Sorry I'll always remember that JJ Watt wiff, could have been the end of Tony's career.

Sorry I'm still not convinced, JJ Watt handled him like a biaotch. Leary took Watt to school that's the facts.

I'd love to hear what they are saying to him in the locker room. If he doesn't change his play, Tony is going to get killed.

He's been playing with an injured ankle, they obviously don't think they have somebody better.

Now that you mention this, I do remember reading about it a couple weeks ago.

He's been facing pro-bowlers lately, this should be a good week for him.
