Found November 12, 2012 on Fox Sports Southwest:
While I cannot imagine that game will ever be given the coveted "instant classic" designation, the result for the Dallas Cowboys was exactly what they needed. A road win against a team that is even more hopeless than they are. A team with perhaps more drama. And more veterans who may or may not have inspired efforts ready. And a coach that is certainly not enjoying his final days at his post. There won't be many opportunities for wins like this - A team just begging to be put to sleep if only you would oblige them. But, you take your wins how you find them along the way and you move along. The Cowboys now have a record of 4-5 and thanks to the rest of the NFC East having equally frustrating seasons, they now see hope and a potential winning record in just 11 days time. It wasn't easy. It never is with this bunch. But, finally, in the late afternoon in Philadelphia, we saw "all 3 phases" of the team pitch in and make plays that found a victory in a pl...

Following his Monday press conference, the Cowboys coach went into greater detail for about 10 minutes, talking about Romo's ability to extend plays.

2 faces of November: Tony Romo vs Eli Manning

We’re seeing something this season very similar to what we have over the last five years in the quality of play from Tony Romo and Eli Manning during the month of November. For some odd reason, the performances over the last five years or so of these two elite quarterbacks have been closely compared but in November they seem to end up on opposite ends of the field. It turns out...

Dallas 38, Philadelphia 23: It Must Be November

Felix Jones found the end zone for the third time in 2012. Tony Romo has been the starting quarterback in Dallas during six of the last seven months of November (he was injured in 2010).

Romo needs to continue eliminating risky play

Jason Garrett talked Monday about taking the good with the bad when you have Tony Romo at quarterback. "You're going to have some plays that you don't like, and you have to live with those, and we've had a few of those," Garrett said. "But at the same time, you have to allow for the other ones. You have to be balanced in how you evaluate it." On...

Cowboys poised for playoffs

Before the 2012 NFL season started, I picked the Cowboys to qualify for the playoffs as one of the NFC's two wildcard teams. Naturally, I heard about it. "Your obsession with the Cowboys and blatant man-crush on Tony Romo is not only disturbing, but it's clouding your judgment. You happen to be one of my favorite NFL writers, but the odd love affair you have with Romo...
