60 Max Power O:
Ah, let the criticism continue. Sports Illustrated recently conducted a poll of 180 real, live NFL players and asked the oft-wondered question of who is the most overrated player in the NFL. #1 was no surprise. Garnering a whopping 34% of the vote was the illustrious Tim Tebow. Our only question is how can a player that gets no respect as it is be overrated? Do people truly believe he will succeed in this league as a starting QB? They must, or else he wouldn't be rated high enough to be considered overrated.
Tied for 2nd with 8% of the vote (with none other than Tebow's buddy Mark Sanchez) is Tony Romo. Excuse my french, NFL players, but that's a load of ****. Overrated? Get out of here. Tony Romo is the sole reason the Dallas Cowboys have been on the verge of relevant since he took over. Has he gotten them to a Super Bowl? No. Does he have the talent to? Yes.
Of course, the results of the poll aren't necessarily surprising. There are a whole myriad of folks who ...

BUCK UP, DOUBLE-J!
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is worried about his team's upcoming match-up with the New York Giants because of injuries, saying, "we wanted all hands on deck."
It is difficult to find trends of success through 6 games from this Cowboys' offense. In week 1, they did many things very well and looked balanced and competent. Since then, the Garrett-Romo offense has been anything but consistent, with a horrendous performance in Seattle, near absence against Tampa Bay, a turnover machine versus Chicago, and then a power-running team against...
1. The Cowboys Offense isn't Coming Back Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Jason Witten and DeMarco Murray are very good players, and Dez Bryant is decent, but a combination of remarkably bad playcalling and a weak interior offensive line likely will prevent the Cowboys offense from being anything more than average in 2012.
Jason Garrett's playcalling is both predictable against...
Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church only played in three games this season before he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury and now he’s been signed a four-year extension. Church received a … Continue reading »
Lawrence Vickers knows he is a rare breed.
In prior decades, it would not be uncommon for an NFL team to carry two fullbacks. Now, some clubs such as the Detroit Lions don't have even one on their 53-man roster, as H-backs and sixth offensive linemen fill blocking roles.
Vickers, though, has that job with the Dallas Cowboys because the franchise is committed to the position...
IRVING Aside from a 29-point outburst in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Cowboys have struggled to score points. On Sunday, they'll face a New York Giants team that has scored at least 30 points on three separate occasions and averages 29.3 points per game.
So why haven't the Cowboys been able to hit the 30-point mark? They met or exceeded that total five times last...
The Dallas Cowboys ruled out starting running back DeMarco Murray for Sunday's game against the New York Giants, ESPN Dallas reported Friday. He has a sprained foot. Murray's backup, Felix Jones, is questionable with a bruised knee. He was limited in Friday's practice. If Jones cannot start, Phillip Tanner will replace him. Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware missed...
TweetThe New York Giants (5-2) and Dallas Cowboys (3-3) meet week 8 of this 2012 season for an NFC East showdown. New York comes into this game in sole possession of first place and with an opportunity to really hurt the Cowboys. A win would be the GMEN's second divisional win but it would also [...]
