Comments on the Dallas Cowboys by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
DALLAS COWBOYS (15)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 18) - Romo not the problem: How about protecting lead?
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 15) - Even if Dez Bryant avoids trouble, playoff hopes in trouble if they don't keep pass rushers away from Tony Romo.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 12) - Jason Witten's injury could leave Tony Romo without his go-to guy to start season.
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 17) - Curious to see how much better they are on defense.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 14) - Tony Romo too often gets bad rap for being problem in Dallas. He comes off great statistical year, but there wasn't enough around him to pull off playoff run. Fearing that might be case again in `12.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 16) - Cowboys and Redskins only two teams who open season with two road games. That's unfair scheduling by league.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 16) - Forget the...
BEST OF MAXIM
It was only a matter of time before Tony Romo does what he normally does statistically on a big stage.
Playing on a national stage and in the home of the defending world champion (and bitter NFC East rival) New York Giants, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys played the role of party stoppers in grand fashion. Very few gave Romo and the ‘Boys much respect coming into this contest...
Cowboys QB Tony Romo proved he's still one of fantasy's best second-tier QBs with 307 yards and three touchdowns Wednesday in the season opener against the Giants.Fantasy Spin:Romo spread the ball around and the Cowboys offense produced three excellent fantasy receiver lines from Kevin Ogletree, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. Romo should continue to put up big numbers, especially...
Good to be a winner
The Tony Romo haters have to hate the way the 2012 NFL season kicked off. For the first time in nine years, the defending Super Bowl champs lost the opener at home. In a much-anticipated NFC East rumble, Romo’s Cowboys out-dueled Eli’s Giants, 24–17.
Romo was brilliant. He completed 22 of 29 passes for 307 yards and three touchdowns. Sure, he...
It’s America’s Champion vs. America’s Team. The G-Men vs. the ‘Boys. Ahhh, the 2012 NFL season is upon us!
Typically when the year starts there are a few overwhelming conclusions from the media and gambling world: The Patriots are Super Bowl favorites (New England is tied with Green Bay at 23/4) and there is a good chance this is Tony Romo and the Cowboys’ year. Interestingly...
The NFL kicked off in dramatic rivalry fashion with the returning Superbowl Champion Giants taking on their NFC East foe Dallas Cowboys. Much maligned Quarterback Tony Romo came, saw and conquered while in MetLife Stadium as he threw for 307 yards including three TD’s and came up bigger than Eli in the 24-17 victory.
The hero of the night props goes...
Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys face a tough schedule, but history shows that teams that do not make the playoffs one year can always make a deep, unexpected run the following year. Here are the four keys to the 'Boys making the 2012 playoffs.
The Dallas Cowboys kick off the highly-anticipated 2012 NFL regular season on the road at MetLife Stadium against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
This will be the third consecutive battle between these two teams aired in prime time (8:30pm ET) on NBC and the ninth straight season the defending champs will have hosted the season opener. The defending champions...
Finally NFL football is back! A late rally by Eli Manning and the defending champion New York Giants came up short on this opening Wednesday kickstart to the 2012 campaign.The long awaited divisional matchup began in lackluster fashion, the only touchdown in a yawner of a first half coming on a Tony Romo toss to Kevin Ogletree from ten yards out with 2:33 left before intermission...
IRVING, Texas -- Most of the country noticed on the second-to-last day of July, when Jerry Jones grabbed a microphone a half-hour before the first training camp practice in Oxnard, Calif., smiled big and invited everyone in the crowd to come to Cowboys Stadium and watch the Cowboys "kick the Giants' ass!" But that wasn't when the Cowboys started thinking about...
I know exactly how I hope Wednesday's NFL regular-season opener at MetLife Stadium will go. I want the New York Giants to start by pounding the ball on the ground, getting at least one rushing touchdown, hopefully by Ahmad Bradshaw. I want the Giants to be up by, say, 14 points at half so the Dallas Cowboys are forced to pass the ball in the second half. I want Tony Romo to throw...
