Since consecutive strong showings against the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles in October, Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr has struggled to get back to that level of play.

"Just be more aggressive and just get back my mentality that got me into these doors," Carr said. "I feel like I kind of went away from that. Whatever, that's my fault. You get an opportunity to go out there Sunday and to prove yourself once again."

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall is likely to be matched up often against Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr in Week 14. "I don't like playing against Brandon Carr," Marshall said.

He plays that way against guys like myself. I absolutely hate the matchup. It's like playing chess out there with him. Every single play is a battle. He just makes you work so hard."

Cowboys | Brandon Carr feels he will thrive in new scheme

Sat, 16 Feb 2013 08:59:56 -0800

Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr said he is excited about new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's scheme.

"In years past you could go up and challenge the guys and be aggressive and beat them up all the way down the field," Carr said. "But now the game has changed so much that if you even look at them sometimes, they're throwing the flag."

Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin has told players to watch tape of the Seattle Seahawks defense to receive an idea of what his defense will look like in 2013.
