NBC Dallas- Fort Worth:
The owner of the Dallas Cowboys’ longest kick return in 2011 thus far isn’t who you’d think. It’s not Dez Bryant or Dwayne Harris, dynamic playmakers who could seemingly go for six at any time. Rather, it’s Sean Lissemore, the back-up defensive end who is listed at 6-foot-4 and 306 pounds.
In what was easily the most amusing play of last week’s Cowboys-Lions game, Detroit’s kicker, Jason Hanson, slipped and fell on a kickoff. The kick found the arms of Lissemore, who returned it 38 yards--as we’ve said, the longest return of the season for Dallas, and the longest since December of last year.
“I made the first cut and I felt like I was in space, so I was like, ‘Oh, this is pretty good,’ then I was thinking about getting up the sideline and protecting the ball,” Lissemore said, per ESPN Dallas. “I wish I would’ve switched the ball so I could have stiff armed the guy. I don’t know. Beggars can’t be choosers, know what I mean?”
After the game, Lissemore’s phone was teeming

Brandon George of Dallas News writes that wide receiver Laurent Robinson has admitted that he’s always wanted to play for the Cowboys.
Robinson is quickly gaining popularity among the fan base especially after his big day last Sunday when he caught seven catches for a career-high 116 yards in the Cowboys’ 34-30 loss.
George quotes Robinson’s mother Linda Brown, who said her...

(By Jaime Aron, The Associated Press) IRVING, Texas When Tony Romo is good, he can be very, very good.Historically good, like having the fifth-best passer rating ever, second-best in fourth quarters alone.
In my weekly appearance on 106.7 The Fan with Chad Dukes and LaVar Arrington I made some comments regarding Tony Romo. “It's amazing, amazing to watch him choke like that … there's no way that Detroit is gonna drive on you that many times. The only way you're gonna give up that many points is turnovers, right? It was hilarious to watch him throw pick-sixes, too, back...
Joe Theismann didn't hold back Tuesday in his criticism of Donovan McNabb. Now, the former Washington Redskins quarterback is turning to another object of his scorn: Tony Romo. Theismann, now an NFL Network analyst, explained his frustrations with the quarterback on NFL.com's "Dave Dameshek Football Program", calling Romo "average" and saying the Dallas...
It won't turn down the heat on Tony Romo, but at least he knows people care. The results of a recent Harris Poll show that the Dallas Cowboys rank as the NFL's most popular team for the fifth year in a row.

Washington TE Chris Cooley is loving all this attention. Earlier in the week, Cooley made some comments on a Washington Radio show about how he enjoyed Dallas Cowboy’s QB Tony Romo choking away last Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. (For his full statement, click here) Since then, Cooley has been inundated with Cowboy hate via Twitter. But according to him, it’s all...
Danny White was one of the Cowboys' all-time best QBs. He, too, faced intense scrutiny while trying to get the franchise back to the Super Bowl. Twenty years later, he knows exactly what Tony Romo's going through.
There really doesn't seem to be end in sight to the Tony Romo hatefest.
It doesn't matter that he was the driving force in the two Cowboys victories or that Jason Garrett's unwillingness to just run the ball and let Rob Ryan's defense do its thing contributed mightily to the loss, it all comes back on Romo. That's hardly unfair given the way he played and it...
