Found October 25, 2012 on Fox Sports Southwest:
Tony Romo is one of the most scrutinized players in the NFL and this weeks Sports Illustrated proves that even NFL players are critical of his work. In SIs weekly players poll, 180 NFL players were asked: Who is the most overrated player in the league? While Romo didnt grab the top spot, he did receive eight percent of the vote. New York Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez also received eight percent. Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow convincingly topped the poll with 34 percent of the vote. Philadelphias Michael Vick (four percent) was fourth and Baltimores Ray Lewis (three percent) rounded out the top five. Forty eight players received at least one vote and surprisingly, Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Tom Brady (two percent) and Eli Manning (one percent) were each named by a few players.

Cowboys lacking explosiveness on offense

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...

Pink not enough in cancer fight

This weekend the NFL wraps up its war on breast cancer with a final barrage of pink shoes, pink towels, pink hats, pink gloves and now even pink penalty flags.

Dallas offense stuck in neutral

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...
