PLAYERS: Tony Romo
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Jerry Jones in a radio interview gave some thoughts on his QB’s status in the league when asked about Romo being top 4. “You can be a hell of a passer, now, and still not win these games,” Jones said on KRLD 105.3 FM “The Fan” on Tuesday in his weekly radio appearance. “You can be a heck of a quarterback and not win them. … By all accounts, (Rivers) is a top quarterback out there in San Diego, and yet, they had won one out of three. You’ve got to have a lot of things going for you. It’s obviously a lot of people involved that lost the game out there the other day for the Cowboys, and we’ve got to get them going in the right direction.” Romo has certainly made some plays and has some talent but his status in the league is very much questionable and I’m sure most people would include wins in their QB rankings criteria.   Need NFL Tickets?

Romo needs to take more chances to beat Denver

If Jerry Jones was telling the truth when he said Tony Romo would have a lot more say in the game-planning process this season, then it's time for the quarterback to get a little greedy.

Decoding Callahan - The Troubling Evolution Of The Road Game Plan

From an offensive point of view, Sunday was an odd game to evaluate. On one hand, they protected the ball relatively well (until the fumble into the end zone), protected the QB reasonably well, and ran the ball impressively. On the other hand, they only accumulated 317 yards of total offense, converted very poorly on 3rd Downs (3-9), and barely spent 25 minutes on the field. None...

Cowboys-Chargers Instant Trivia: Very Premature Projections

The Cowboys are 2-2 for the third consecutive year. The team is 18-18 during that time. Heck, the team is 130-130 since the 1997 season. If everything in the NFL, and especially the NFC East, remains the same for the rest of the season, the Cowboys could make the playoffs even with an 8-8 record.
