Jermon Bushrod knew the questions would be coming Tuesday.

In fact, the New Orleans Saints left tackle said he'd been anticipating them ever since he first learned that the Dallas Cowboys would be on the 2010 schedule.

He knew he'd have to rehash his most forgettable night as a pro - when he allowed two sacks and several more quarterback hurries against the Cowboys' perennial Pro Bowl pass rusher, DeMarcus Ware, in a 24-17 loss in the Superdome last December.
