The Cowboys had more than their share in Saturday's loss to the Steelers as Dorsett fumbled twice and Hogeboom was intercepted twice in what was easily the worst Dallas preseason performance so far. White completed 11 of 14 passes and threw for a touchdown in the first half to clearly win this round, but Landry remained steadfast in his support of "Hogen-boom." White described Hogeboom's outing as "a good learning experience for him." And White was unwavering in his belief that Landry wasn't using him to try and make a point, no matter how convincing the evidence may be to the contrary. "I really don't think he's manipulating anybody." White said, "or that he's doing all this to be sending any messages."
But somewhere out there, Cowboyologists were studying their TV screens to see which quarterback Landry was standing closer to while the cheerleaders did their salute to The Love Boat.
