The Penalty Flag:
Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys could be facing a disappointing 1-2 start if they do not fix the problems that led them to a head-scratching blowout loss against the Seattle Seahawks last week. The loss led many fans and critics to wonder what kind of the team the Cowboys are this year? Although the first weeks of the NFL season always contain a degree of parody, a loss against a sub-par Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ team this coming Sunday would create some serious doubt about Dallas’ chances at a playoff run. While a 1-2 start is much better than the dreaded 0-3 start, it would not bode well for a Cowboys’ team that is consistently ripe with talent yet often underachievement.… Read more

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed that their defense means business, even if the other team is in their victory formation.During the Buccaneers game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday afternoon, the Bucs defense once again tried to blitz during the Cowboys victory formation stance.With only a few seconds left on the clock and with the Cowboys with the 16-10 lead, Buccaneers head coach...
The Cowboys made a stir earlier this year when they announced that wide receiver Dez Bryant would be playing under a different set of team rules this season. Bryant had a curfew set up and his off-field entertainment choices curtailed by the team, which has been trying to find a way to keep Bryant from inhibiting himself in his free time so he can go back to being a downfield threat...
Poor Tony Romo, not only did he get destroyed on this sack by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Gerald McCoy but he didn't even get a penalty for a helmet-to-helmet hit from the replacement officials:
I’m available for parties too Juan…
I’m ready for Dez Bryant to live up to the hype. Yes, the guy is a freak of nature that should be unstoppable in the Cowboys passing game. The problem is his lack of consistency and his Houdini act he pulls in games. Will this be the year he breaks out? The jury is still out.

After lighting up the Giants in week one, Romo has looked abysmal in his last 2 outings. Playing at home vs the Bucs D that Eli Manning turned into Swiss cheese last week, has me thinking Romo is ready to go for 300/3 and get back on track. Not so much.
In his last 2 games Romo has failed to throw for 300 yards, has only 1 TD, and has...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have had to go a long way to score their touchdowns this season.
Their four touchdown drives have averaged 78 yards, including a 95-yarder for their only score in the last game.
''You have to do a lot of things right to go 80 yards, 60 yards, whatever,'' Romo said Thursday. ''When you have...

Another day, another NFL fan brawl. It’s pretty ridiculous. I don’t remember there being so many viral videos of fan fights in the past.
Either way, today we feature the Seahawks vs. the Cowboys. The fight is a fight; all I have to say is that’s the type of guy that would buy a Dez Bryant jersey. Period.
I’ll see you next year Juan…
Matt Barkley is consensus #1 pick in the 2013 NFL draft. He has all the skills to be an Franchise QB. Now, where will he end up? The Chiefs are a squad that is desperate for a Franchise guy, but it remains to be seen who will falling flat for Matt.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys finally had some short scoring drives, and needed them.
There also were a couple of extra kneel-downs by Romo before the Cowboys had secured a 16-10 victory Sunday in their home opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Romo was unscathed on those extra snaps when the Bucs, a week after their big push against the New York...
When it comes to hanging tough on the road against NFC East powerhouses, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting far more experience than they'd like these days.
And much to their dismay, they're also finding themselves with plenty of time to practice head coach Greg Schiano's controversial blitz-the-victory formation call.
Even with some impressive play along the way...
ARLINGTON, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys rode their defense to overcome a mistake-prone Tony Romo and beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16-10 Sunday afternoon before of a crowd of 81,984 at Cowboys Stadium. Romo turned the ball over three times, but Dallas' defense allowed just one touchdown and 166 total yards as the Cowboys improved to 2-1 in their home opener. The Buccaneers...

I liked Stevie Johnson coming into the season, but didn’t love him. He was still dealing with a groin issue and Fitzpatrick faded down the stretch of the of 2011 season as he was either injured or teams figured him out.
So far this season, the Bills offense has been pretty darn effective and Johnson has 50 yards or more with...
