Tony Romo plays the most important position and pulls down the biggest salary on the Dallas Cowboys, but he's not the guy who makes the difference with this year's team.
DeMarco Murray is.
He's more than merely the Cowboys' starting running back; he's the key to their success. Because if Murray can stay in the lineup ... and if the Cowboys can make a commitment to him and the running game ... they have a chance to do something they haven't the past three years.
Make the playoffs.
"We can be tremendously good if I stay in there for all 16 games," Murray said after practice Tuesday. "And somehow, some way, I'm going to try to make that happen."
Good. Because in his two years with Dallas he spent too much time on the sidelines. He missed nine of 32 games, and while the Cowboys would love to feature him -- heck, they're 8-0 when he has 20 or more carries -- they must be aware of his history, too. A year ago, for instance, he misse...

He is officially overweight. This is a temporary problem and the least of his concerns.
He has returned to Dallas after that nasty cyst issue was taken care of.

OXNARD, Calif. -- The Dallas Cowboys are being suspiciously coy in their discussions about the weight of quarterback Tony Romo, whose listed weight of 236 pounds is six pounds heavier than his official weight from a year ago and 17 pounds heavier than the 219 he was listed at earlier in his career.

Yesterday social media and the Cowboys haters and lovers around the world were in an uproar over the news that Tony Romo reported to camp weighting 236 pounds.
Romo of course put on a little weight after having surgery last month to remove a cyst from his back. Surgery or not, that didn’t stop his critics from coming out in full force.

On the recent edition of The UC Show, Kenny and Tinsley went on the defensive; first, with Tinsley launching a tirade at the NCAA for the newly-instituted Jadeveon Clowney Rule. At one time, Tinsley used to dismiss the “one second away from flag football” talk, but with this new rule, he is beginning to see [...]The post Podcast: Is Tony Romo Better Than Matt Ryan?

Tony Romo: No-brainer at this position. But as always, Romo enters the season striving to meet expectations that have yet to be fulfilled, despite finishing up his fourth 4,000-yard passing season in the last six years. (One of those two years he missed 10 games with injury.) Romo seems to always have to prove something to someone, and granted its not...
Tony Romo isn’t fat, but he has put on a few extra pounds.

This is the third post in my ongoing series reviewing the Dallas Cowboys roster position by position.
Might as well just call this a position preview of DeMarco Murray and his unheralded, unproven backups, but that’s neither here nor there.
Evaluating last year’s ground game as a whole is pretty laughable. As I’ve said many times, there’s a reason Romo had to chunk it...
The Dallas Cowboys have made some changes on defense, had some guys mature into positions, and locked up their quarterback long term.
Less than a week has passed in this year’s training camp, but Tony Romo has seen enough to heap some more pressure on his club.
During an SiriusXM NFL Radio interview with FOXSports1′s Alex Marvez and co-host Gil Brandt, Romo felt confident enough...

The Cowboys have officially kicked off camp and are in full swing as the 2013 season rapidly approaches. There is a lot of questions heading into the season for fantasy purposes…can DeMarco Murray stay healthy? Can Miles Austin stay on the field? Will Dez Bryant build off his incredible second half of 2012? Can Witten keep producing at such a high level? See some of the pics...
With Tony Romo back on the field for the first time since undergoing back surgery in April, the first practice of the Cowboys’ 2013 training camp had all the markings of a feel-good event for the club.
But that was before defensive end Tyrone Crawford was carted off the field Sunday afternoon with what the club fears is a season-ending torn Achilles’ tendon.
A 2011 third-round...
