Romo has been tagged as a choker unable to perform in the most demanding moments when his team truly needs him to shine. He is scoffed at as a leader and considered the furthest thing from a winner. Yet, few have performed as consistently and as impressively as Romo has been able to since becoming the starter in Dallas during the 2006 season.
Romo has compiled a 47-30 win-loss record—a 61 percent win percentage in his six seasons as the Cowboys starter. He has eclipsed 4,000 yards in three of those seasons and has been within the top 10 in touchdown passes in four.
As it stands now, Romo’s career passer rating is 96.9. That number is better than all but one man—Aaron Rodgers, arguably the best quarterback in the NFL. Certainly, passer rating is admittedly not the best measure for quarterback play, but it ...

OXNARD, Calif. Jason Wittens spleen injury has the Dallas Cowboys scrambling for help at the tight end position while also hoping the All-Pros recovery does not impact his availability for the teams regular-season opener on Wednesday, Sept. 4 against the Giants.

Yes, J.R. Ewing brought his drama back to Dallas this season on TNT. Still, I don't think it will match the drama coming out of Cowboys Stadium this year. Why?
Kyle Orton specializes in drama and he is the new backup quarterback to Tony Romo.
You may remember Orton got caught up in the "Guiding Tebow Light" drama last season with the Denver Broncos.
After a mediocre...
There are a lot of Cowboy’s fans wondering when Jerry Jones is going to smarten up and hire the team a general manager. The fans are saying the Cowboys can’t be a constant contender in the NFL as long as Jones continues to be the teams G.M.. The fans think Jones is trying to do too much and they think bringing in a general manager that knows football can help the Cowboys return...
The Dallas Cowboys have been held back by poor offensive line play over the last few years and even though they made it a priority this offseason, it appears the team – at least temporarily – is back to square one. You can expect that to directly affect their game plan as they prepare for the San Diego Chargers in Week 2 of the preseason. Dallas Cowboys @ San Diego Chargers The...
The competition for the No. 3 receiver role has been one of the most highly contested and closely watched battles throughout Cowboys training camp.
Going into their first preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, the leader of the competition was Kevin Ogletree who was followed closely by training camp stud Cole Beasley.

According to Matt Mosley of FOX Sports Southwest, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is "fully healed" from his broken ankle and has been "the most impressive offensive player to watch in training camp."Fantasy Spin:Running backs coach Skip Peete thinks Murray will be utilized more in the passing game this season, as he has "improved his concentration"...
As Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten waits for his lacerated spleen to heal, he admitted that he doesn’t know when he’ll be back on the field at this point.
“Well, it was ‘How long?’” Witten said, per Todd Archer of ESPN.com. “Again, I do think it’s a different mindset thinking you have to get healed up and regroup. Like (trainers) have said, just...
The long anticipated return to live action for the Oakland Raiders ended in a 3-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in their preseason opener. The score in preseason games matter little because the starters and contributors play very little. The Raiders were able to get a look at the players on the roster and evaluate the strength and weaknesses.
The 5th round marked a time for owners to gamble on a few RBs with question marks as Roy Helu and Frank Gore seem to be trending downward as we approach September. The depth at the QB position was apparent once again as Mike Vick (considered a first round fantasy talent last preseason) and Tony Romo were left in the green room until the completion of round 5.
Previewing the NFL, from A to Z
Few things went the way the Dallas Cowboys expected last season. They were in the thick of the playoff race until the regular season’s final game, within a score of the eventual-champion New York Giants in the fourth quarter. But the Dallas Cowboys finished 8-8 and out of the postseason mix. Now let’s be fair, this is the third...
