On every sports team, there are players fans love and players fans hate.  It’s been that way since the dawn of time.  Since taking on this role as staff writer, I’ve started listening to people around town; on the train to work, in the grocery store, or on message boards, I’m listening / reading what people have to say.  What I’m hearing is this:  Romo has become one of those players fans love to hate. … [visit site to read more] Love Him or Hate Him, He Is the Dallas Cowboys Quarterback - The Landry Hat - The Landry Hat - A Dallas Cowboys Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

2011 Dallas Cowboys Player Analysis: Offense

Quarterback Tony Romo: With 6 seasons starting under his belt, Romo enters the 2012 season at age 32 as a mature passer with great pocket presence and awareness. With an upgrade at the interior of the offensive line, Romo should have another great statistical year. Will he have a Super Bowl winning year? We’ll see… Stephen McGee: McGee enters a contract year where he hasn...

Danny White: If Everyone Played Like Romo, Cowboys Would Be In The Super Bowl

Tony Romo has received a lot of criticism through his career thus far, both justified and not, but you’d have to be a crazy person to think Romo was what was wrong with the Dallas Cowboys in 2011. At least that’s what former Cowboys’ quarterback Danny White believes, and really, we’d agree with him here. We’re far from Romo apologists--we did watch that Lions game, after...

Romo Named Finalist For "Never Say Never Moment Of The Year"

The Dallas Cowboys got well-acquainted with so-called “never say never” moments in 2011, and almost always came out on the wrong side of them. The 2011 edition of the Cowboys routinely coughed up secure leads to lose in the waning moments of games--including four losses after holding double digit fourth quarter leads--but once, the tables were turned. In week two, Tony Romo...

Cowboys 18, Redskins 16

With Tony Romo fighting through the pain of broken ribs, the Cowboys weren't that efficient on offense but made up for it against the Redskins, thanks largely to six field goals by a rookie kicker.

Looking Back

Never had Tony Romo been so good and so bad in a span of 60 minutes. His three interceptions helped blow a 24-point second half lead to the Lions in Week 4, the largest ever for a home team.

Backup Plan

Coming off Tony Romo's best season, quarterback isn't an issue for the 8-8 Cowboys. The bigger question is depth. Stephen McGee is the only backup still under contract. Is he ready to be the full-time No. 2?

Do you think if the Cowboys had kept some of their older offensive lineman, they would have protected Tony Romo better?

Here’s Scott Van Pelt’s Wedding Registry?

Scott Van Pelt referenced something during his show today that shocked us, didn’t sound right and then the cable went out. Did he actually say something about his “wife?” One thing led to another and a Scott Van Pelt wedding registry was on our desktop. It seems the Internet’s hero managed to get married in October without a peep from us bloggers. How is that even possible...
