Dallas Cowboys And The NFL:
IRVING – Jerry Jones’ expectations for the 2011 Dallas Cowboys remain high even after Sunday night’s 34-7 trouncing at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles.
The reason? Tony Romo.
“In my perspective, when we have a quarterback that’s healthy – Romo – that can play at the level that I believe he can play at, then I don’t think you ought to lower your expectations,” Jones said when asked if fans should have Super Bowl expectations or just accept that the Cowboys are in a rebuilding year.
“I think you’ve got an opportunity to have a good team,” Jones told Dallas’ KRLD-FM. “Consequently, when I look at the makeup of our team, that’s why I don’t want to – and fans shouldn’t either – dwell on this game.”
The Cowboys have a fairly easy schedule for the next five games, beginning with Sunday’s home outing against Seattle (2-5). Since 2006, the Cowboys are 17-5 in November games. In November games Romo has started, they are 15-2.

Sad state of affairs when a game between a 3-3 team and a 2-4 dream team constitutes the best primetime matchup we’ve seen in three weeks, but such is life in the big pre-flex scheduling city. The Cowboys are coming off a big win in which DeMarco Murray set a single-game Cowboys rushing record, which doubtlessly suckered millions of fantasy owners into starting him for the inevitable...
For the many Dallas Cowboys fans that are in dire need of some good news following that vicious beat-down last week, we bring you this: It is now November. Tony Romo has been really, really good in November. In fact, he has a career record of 15-2 as a starter in the month of November.
So, you know, there’s that.
Romo is coming off a highly uncharacteristic lag in production...
Earlier today, CBS NFL pregame show, "The NFL Today" decided to do a rather interesting sketch using kids dressed up as NFL players to make a couple of cheaps laughs.
I guess little Tony Romo is still looking for the 4th quarter:
We had an opportunity to talk to Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo and head coach Jason Garrett. And as you would expect, both come from the Lou Holtz media relations school when addressing an opponent. When asked about this week’s opponent, both gushed about the Seattle Seahawks like they were playing the 1986 Chicago Bears Super Bowl team. “As soon as you start...
Is this the new Tony Romo? A non-gunslinger? He played to protect the ball, and without confidence. That's not his game.
At 3-4, the Cowboys certainly don't seem like a playoff contender. But some winnable games over the next five weeks could change expectations.
So what should be the mindset for Cowboys supporters? Should they expect playoffs and a run at a Super Bowl, plan for another year that equates to a high first-round draft pick, or maybe prepare for somewhere in the middle?
