Sports Illustrated players poll names Tony Romo 2nd most overrated player in league

Ah, let the criticism continue. Sports Illustrated recently conducted a poll of 180 real, live NFL players and asked the oft-wondered question of who is the most overrated player in the NFL. #1 was no surprise.

Cowboys Stadium has become a home away from home for New York Giants

Since the grand opening of Jerry Jones’ new home for his Dallas Cowboys, the New York Football Giants have become not only quite acclimated, but very comfortable there.

Rob Ryan can prove his worth with Lee's injury

IRVING, Texas When he's not making bold promises that he rarely backs up, Rob Ryan daydreams about following his twin brother as a head coach in the NFL. That's one of the reasons the Dallas Cowboys' defensive coordinator lost 65 pounds via surgery this past offseason and finally got a haircut.

Romo: Low scoring result of poor execution

IRVING Aside from a 29-point outburst in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Cowboys have struggled to score points. On Sunday, they'll face a New York Giants team that has scored at least 30 points on three separate occasions and averages 29.3 points per game.
