Spleens are serious business, just ask Chris Simms. Jason Witten the all world tight end of the Dallas Cowboys suffered a lacerated spleen in the preseason, however, he was able to make it back for the first game of the year against the New York Giants. Witten, who is know to be tough as nails explains how a spleen injury differs from tradition sports injuries, Witten gave a visit to BAD Radio on KTCK in Dallas: “This whole injury I think was probably the first time, definitely in my career, that is kind of a different injury than all others. If you ask doc and the trainers there over at Valley Ranch, they’d say I wore them out pretty good over the last three, three and a half weeks. Not just because I wanted to play but because of the case of the injury. I think being an organ like that, it’s not a twisted ankle where you can just tape it up and keep going. … If you Google ‘spleen injuries’ the end result in some of those cases is death. I think that freaks people out more than a...

NFL week 2 predictions: Dallas Cowboys on upset alert in Seattle

The Dallas Cowboys looked perfect in week one against the New York Giants. The offense, led by Tony Romo moved the ball at will against the Big Blue defense and the fans in Dallas are already predicting a run to the Super Bowl. Last week I nailed the upset in the game between the Cardinals and the Seahawks as I picked the Cardinals to win outright as small home dogs. Now it is...

Cowboys looking to extend Tony Romo’s contract

Tony Romo isn’t a bad quarterback. He never was, the question is can he become anything more than just a very good quarterback? Romo is going to get every dime of the $68 million contract he signed almost six years ago, but the Cowboys seems willing to hitch their wagon to Romo for the long term. Werder, who has been covering the Cowboys in one form or another for two decades...

Recalling the 2006 Playoff Loss. Again.

Tony Romo may never have a positive legacy because of The Botch during the 2006 playoffs. The 2006 season was the first one I covered for this blog. The Cowboys looked very mediocre early that season as Drew Bledsoe continued to earn a “statue” nickname and Terrell Owens did little to help the Cowboys stand out. Then came the emergence of a new quarterback. He played college...

Fantasy Football: Week #2 Waiver Wire Pickups

Written by Fantasy Furnace   It was great having football back last weekend! Drafts are over and the craziness that was week #1 is now in the books. Now comes the hard part. Deciding which of the several breakout stars of week 1 to grab or just leave alone. However, the pickups made before week 2 are usually the most important for grabbing potential studs. Study carefully...

Returning to Seattle won't be a snap for Romo

One of the worst moments of Tony Romo's football career, if not the worst, had nothing to do with him playing quarterback. On Jan. 6, 2007, it appeared that Romo would lead the Dallas Cowboys to a wild-card playoff win in Seattle. He'd moved his team to Seattle's 2-yard line with 1:19 left in the game after tight end Jason Witten was stopped just short of a first down...

Dallas Cowboys need to be weary of Leon Washington

When the Dallas Cowboys take on the Seattle Seahawks, there will be a lot of focus on shutting down the Seahawks offense. After a rather vanilla game plan last week vs. Arizona, Dallas will look to take advantage of rookie QB Russell Wilson and force him into mistakes. They will also likely stuff the box full of run stoppers to try and account for Marshawn Lynch. Lynch represents...
