    Also keeping things in perspective... we could easily lose to Carolina. This is the NFL. Nothing should surprise you.

    So I dunno how a team with 0 sacks and 0 ints can be talked about as "teeing off on Delhomme".
    I think we will see a lot of improvement in the sacks department.. Wade's teams have always been able to get to the QB, we started slow but I'm sure that a lot of sacks are coming...
    I agree... do you remember when we went 13-3? We started great and finished poor... it's important to get hot at the right time.. when the Giants won the SB they weren't the best team in the NFL, they got hot at the right time... Arizona too... it's something that you see in a lot of sports.. a huge win can carry you to the big one...
    And at the end of the day, football is just a game.. so I'm happy when the Cowboys win but I don't get mad if they lose..

      We might (should) still make the playoffs but anyone not disturbed by the "LOSER" tag put on Tony Turnover need their head examined.

      Again, the pom pom fannies are going to mention Peyton Manning but for anyone honest enough to admit it ..... it was the Colts D that won that SB. Peyton was very mediocre .... though at least in his defense he did not make killer plays.

      Anyone think our D can dominate 4 straight games versus top level competition without Tony Turnover having a disasterous turnover fest game?

      This is why I call this team soft and Tony a flake. I can not imagine 4 games of tough nose D and effective QBing. 4 straight? Just hard ....
      Bob, it's pretty popular right now to bash Romo. Everybody is doing it... From Tony Dorsett to Colin Cowherd and every other uncle's monkey in sports media everywhere. Cowherd was going on and on about how Romo is like 13-14th best QB in the league. ...and you know what? Don't color me a fool. This is all about ratings. It's all about making news about the Cowboys because the fact of the matter is that Cowboys news makes them money. The TO show has left town. They need to come up with soooooomething... This team was built to make it Romo-friendly, so it's his responsibility to make the engine go. That's the story the media built up for the Cowboys before the season started. They said he will shoulder the blame. Now at first crack, here they gooooo!!! Forget that we put up over 30 points against the mighty Giants and lost by a last second FG... Noooo.... That's not a juicy story... His TURNOVERS!!!! Now THAT'S a story!!! But the fact of the matter is that despite his turnovers, he STILL lead the team down the field when they needed to make a TD and they DID IT! How can I personally blame the guy for giving us the lead when we needed it? Our defense cost us the game. Period. Cowboys fans need to stop with the Romo bashing because there are A LOT of teams out there WORST OFF. The grass isn't always greener. The Cowboys fans have quickly forgotten the whole slew of names that rotated at the position between the time from Aikman to Romo. For me, I have the memory of an elephant. I don't forget those dark times. No sir. I'm NOT gonna act like I'm not grateful to Romo, because I am. Despite his flaws, I'm still in his corner. He's a damn playmaker. With that, I understand that he will make mistakes in trying to go for it. He's no Delhomme. Delhomme never was a playmaker. He rode the coattails of a strong run game and Steve Smith who worked his way into the endzone most of the time. So don't sell me that crap. Call him Tony Turnover. Tony the flake. Ask for him to get benched. Yeah, keep doing it... keep calling his supporters "pom pom fannies". ...that will accomplish something. ...and that something will be looking like a DAMN FOOL when Tony has great games.... and he WILL have many great games ahead. So stay in your bashing corner so you can eat crow.

        Um, well for us to win a SB we need the following in addition to a playoff classification.....

        Option A:
        Tony Romo play 3/4 straight great games in a row versus top notch teams and our D plays pretty good for 3/4 games (<21 points).

        Option B:
        Tony Romo plays 3/4 straight games with no turnovers versus top notch teams and our D play dominantly for 3/4 games (<14 points).

        I just can't see this happening.

          Time will tell. ;)

          Option C: We just win no matter how good or how ugly.

            You bring up and interesting point about people needing something to talk about. All this bashing of Romo is getting ********. I guess it really is just media hype to get ratings. It was a bad game, but it's not like he's played garbage his entire career.

            • Flake is going to have a huge game tomorrow in a blow-out.

              42-17. Cowboys win.

              • Ya, I'm thinking that Wade and the defense show a little pride and step up with a good game. something like 31-13

                • Terrell Owens' stats for the year: five catches, 98 yards, zero impact. Shutout Sunday against the Saints.

                  ... I hope this starts to put to bed some of the grousing over his departure ..... shut out versus the Saints?????

                  As stated, he is done. He will have the occasional big game as did Jerry Rice and Tim Brown when the legs and the situation combine perfectly for old man nirvana -- but fact is Miles Austin is better (and worth more) than TO right now.

                  Good luck in Hollywood Cancer Boy.

                    I don't think there's any question that Austin is better now when you factor in salary cap and just the distractions he creates.

                    Norm on the ticket has been saying it for more than a year and backing it up with numbers that TO has been a player in decline.

                    • Any predictions for tonight?

                      I'm calling it

                      Dallas- 30
                      Carolina- 17

                      We finally get a sack and a turnover. The running game is dominent for us and passing game is solid. I say Romo has 1 turnover though.

                      Defensively, we keep the running game in check, but give up 1 big play to Steve Smith.

                        I like that prediction. But if it's come true, what will ESPN talk about next week? The demise of the Cowboys seems to be the only thing they enjoy gloating about.

                        • Is anyone worried yet? The D and O pretty much suck equally.

                          Comment


                          • Ug, so much for a blow out.

                            Only Ratliff and Brooking are playing well.

                            • The run defense looked stellar tonight. They shut down two of the NFL's top run offenses two weeks in a row. I don't care what anyone says, that's brilliant. Also getting 200+ rush yards two weeks in a row is something special.

                              Side note. Victor Butler has more sacks this year than DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer. Man those guys must suck. Jerry get somebody else! lol

                                In my pool, the monday night game is the tiebreaker, tiebreaker, more specifically is based off of total points. I was expecting a 41-17 score. Makes me glad I had no shot of winning the pool this week anyway, lol.
