Found October 03, 2013 on Sports-Glory:

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is hoping for some calls against the Denver Broncos secondary on Sunday. “They grab, they hold, they’ve almost put a lot of pressure on the refs – whether or not they’re going to call the game close or not,” Romo said on a conference call with reporters 

5 Comments:
  • Romo is not going to get much time to throw anyway. The cowboys will be just like the Eagles, watching the Broncos march right down the field.
  • Peyton is a great QB....reminds me of J. Unitas. Awesome QB and he is on a roll...right now.

    BUT...and this is HUGE...Peyton is a DOME QB. Remember what happened last year when the Broncos played in frigid weather?

    Peyton is a DOME QB and has an 8-9 record in the playoffs so don't count your Superbowl rings until they hatch
  • Uninformed comment-- but that is expected on these forums. Peyton won his only SB to date on a outside field with pouring rain against the Bears. Inside a dome his team lost to the Saints. Right there your comment falls flat. Elway also had a poor record in SB's until the Broncos won two consecutive at the end of his career. As important as the QB is, the entire fortunes of a team cannot rest just on his back--any QB. The Broncos loss in the playoffs to the Ravens was largely on the shoulders of the poor play of the defensive backs--not Manning.

    Update: October 04, 2013
    My mistake on the Saints SB win- for some reason was thinking they played in New Orleans that year. Anyway, the point is overstated as how important playing inside is to a dome team. Stats are interesting but they don't always tell the whole story.
  • My mistake on the Saints-Colts SB, which was not in a dome.
  • Darl'in, Peyton's on a roll. Regardless of the past, when this man puts his mind to something, he cannot be stopped.

Cowboys Are Sick of Hearing About Peyton Manning

Cowboys are doing a lot of chirping about the Broncos and Peyton Manning.

How are elite teams defined?

Usually in the NFL we know who the elite teams are, but sometimes we have a hard time defining exactly what that means. Do elite teams have shutdown defenses, high-octane offense and great kickers on special teams? Well, as we’ve seen this year, there’s no one qualification. The Denver Broncos, for example, are the hottest team in football. Peyton Manning is putting up touchdowns...
