eassier said than done but Drew says he's had little problem as far as hearing footsteps "I don't hear them and I don't care about them If I did care about them I wouldn't be able to make the catch I don't think any receiver in the league can worry about footsteps and still catch the ball" Pearson is 6-0 185 and as pro football players go he's extremely small Ile's taken some vicious shots over the years but somehow always seems to bounce right up and go back to the huddle He has never missed a game lb Can't worry "Getting hit hard by a defensive back can have a big effect on you if you let it" Drew said "If I get hit hard going over the middle or something like that I get up quickly and try to put it out of my mind because I know sometime later on in the game I might have to come back and run that same route So you can't sit there thinking about how hard you got hit "If you want to be a successful receiver you can't worry about being hit or whose at safety or what type of player is

right cornerback Dwight Harrison is the top player in the Buffalo secondary that also includes Mario Clark at left corner Doug Jones at strong safety and Tony Greene at free safety ONE OF THE COWBOY priorities offensively will be protecting quarterback Roger Staubach because Ermal says the Bills blitz an unusually high number of times "We'll have to be able to block every type of blitz known to
