I said this before Michael Irvin did, but if it sounds better coming from the Hall of Famer, I’m all for it.
Tony Romo is off to a sizzling start this season, and he is not the reason the Cowboys are 2-2 after blowing a lead to the San Diego Chargers.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Irvin and a few other colleagues on the NFL Network’s Sunday pregame show deemed Romo, “the best quarterback in the NFC, period.”
Things apparently were going so smooth for the Cowboys that on NFL Network Tony Romo was decreed “the most dependable quarterback in the NFC” by a panel that included Super Bowl winning quarterback Kurt Warner as well as Hall of Famers Warren Sapp and Michael Irvin.
Irvin was feeling so much love for his former team that he myopically declared Romo, “The best quarterback in the NFC. Period.”
I know the Cowboys lost yesterday. Tony Romo doesn’t play defensive back though, does he?

Antonio Gates and the Chargers capitalized on the Cowboys mental mistakes.
After the Dallas Cowboys 17-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago, I wrote about how the team continues to follow the same old script year after year.
They surprised almost nobody and followed the same recipe for failure in today’s 30-21 loss to the San Diego Chargers.
It is evident that this team...
Tony Romo is off to a hot start to the 2013 season, despite the Dallas Cowboys’ 2-2 record. He was sharp in a loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday and has a quarterback rating of 105.0 through four games this year. That’s almost a full ten points above his career QB rating. However, […]
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told KRLD 105.3 FM “The Fan” that Tony Romo’s have been cut down because of his involvement in their weekly game planning.
“Romo’s additional involvement, and I’m talking about in the actual preparation of the game plan – his early-week work – a part of that should have, and has, brought along a more sensitivity about protecting the ball...

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...

Jerry Jones is never shy about his opinions about what can make the team better, and he had his own coaching tips for Tony Romo today.
His advice? Find Dez Bryant more, even if the insanely talented wide receiver is double covered.
Here's Jones as the ultimate Dez Bryant hype man, per NFL.com:
"The same kind of throw you throw to him in the end zone...
It’s a good thing that Jerry Jones played RB because I feel like he would have been a reckless QB. In a radio interview Jerry Jones made some comments that could lead to a few more interceptions from Tony Romo.
“The same kind of throw you throw to him in the end zone the other day that he made that catch,” Jones said Tuesday morning on KRLD-FM. “He can make that catch with...
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants quarterback Tony Romo to throw the ball to wide receiver Dez Bryant even when he’s double-covered. “The same kind of throw you throw to him in the end zone the other day that he made that catch,” Jones said Tuesday morning on KRLD-FM via THe Dallas Morning News. “He can make that catch with two people on him.
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...

It’s safe to say that Matt Schaub is the new Tony Romo. The Houston Texans quarterback has thrown six interceptions through four games this season, including a pick-six in three straight games. Two of the interceptions returned for touchdowns came late in the fourth quarter (first against Tennessee and then against Seattle). Both pick-sixes resulted […]
This season is supposed to be different for the Dallas Cowboys. They brought in a new offensive coordinator in Bill Callahan and a new defensive coordinator in Monte Kiffin. Quarterback Tony Romo, who recently signed a 6-year, $108 million dollar contract extension ($55 million guaranteed), is having more say-so on what plays the offense will run. The defense would be better than...
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.
In fact, if the regular season ended today, the Cowboys would host a playoff game as...
