The difference in the philosophies of the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos was most apparent Wednesday during pass rush drills. It was the bigger, beefier Cowboys against the smaller, quicker Broncos, both on offense and defense.

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips says his team not only go for size but also athleticism.

Star linebacker DeMarcus Ware threw tight end Tony Scheffler to the grass on one play and tossed rookie left tackle Ryan Clady aside on the next.

The 1-on-1 drills weren't best suited for the undersized Broncos offensive linemen, who are accustomed to moving as one in a manner that routinely leads to high rushing totals.

The Broncos will play the Cowboys in a pre-season game Saturday in Denver.
