PLAYERS: Tony RomoKyle Orton
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Tony Romo has thrown more interceptions than any other NFL quarterback through the first eight weeks of the season. Some probably believe the Cowboys starting quarterback should be benched. But it's not that simple. All of Romo's turnovers aren't solely his fault and there is no guarantee that Cowboys backup quarterback Kyle Orton would have better results with the same group. There's not a clear determination of what it would take for Romo to be benched. After throwing nine interceptions during his last two games at Cowboys Stadium, the Cowboys owner, general manager, executive vice president and head coach have all publicly supported the team's franchise quarterback, so it appears Romo is not close to being replaced in the starting lineup. "Tony is a starting quarterback and a quarterback that the team, candidly, is built around, (and it's) about as indispensable of a situation as you can (have)," Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM. "And it is not practical to say, We're going to bench you.' That usually isn't practical. You can look at teams that are dealing with that right now, publicly. So what do you do? You work from within. "I've lived a life to where I've always worked for myself, and I've been fortunate because that's what I wanted to do. Well, then you don't fire yourself, or otherwise, get out of business. What you do is look in the mirror and make changes within the mirror. And that's doable." Romo has thrown 13 interceptions this season, three more than he tossed all of last year. His career high is 19, which came in 2007, his first full season as a starter.

Dallas Cowboys Report Card: The Cause Of 3-4

Everyone loves to talk about Tony Romo.  He is always the source of the Cowboys' ups and downs- never the other 52 players or the coaches, trainers, and personnel department.He fumbled a field goal hold in his first playoff game (after losing all his holding practice time when he became the starter that year), he went to Cabo during the bye week before losing to the Giants ...

Vick, Romo, Sanchez a trio bland

There was a time not too long ago when having Mike Vick, Tony Romo or Mark Sanchez as your quarterback was considered living well in the NFL. Now it is like the sports version of marry, boff, kill. If you had to choose one to build your franchise around, one to win a single game and death is not an option (neither is abstaining) whom do you go with? Be careful with quick answers...

Cowboys look to spoil Falcons' 7-0 record

IRVING, Texas -- The error-prone Cowboys haven't been good enough to bob over .500 and are 0-7 in their last seven Sunday night games.

And yet Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is willing to "guarantee" a win for Dallas as long as you hear the "if"...
