What really caused the injury?? Team drills or Jessica's ________ ???


Cowboys QB Tony Romo (http://www.footballguys.com/RomoTo00-1.php) dinged his left, non-throwing hand during team drills. He was examined by athletic trainer Jim Maurer and had his left middle finger taped. Romo was able to complete the rest of practice and did not appear bothered by the injury.

A back-up for Romo???


Multiple sources have said the Dallas Cowboys are looking for an upgrade at quarterback to play immediately behind Tony Romo (http://www.footballguys.com/RomoTo00-1.php) this season. Current second-stringer Brad Johnson (http://www.footballguys.com/JohnBr00-1.php) will be 40 in September, and the team has witnessed that his arm is no longer what it was when he was 30. The name that continues to float around Valley Ranch is former Texas star Chris Simms. Simms, 26, is under contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and has told friends he would definitely be interested in signing with the Cowboys.

I have been hearing that Dallas is interested in Chris Simms for a while now, but then Jerry Jones still has confidence in Brad Johnson. Either way, Romo's job is secure unless he gets hurt.

Terry Glenn


Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terry Glenn (http://www.footballguys.com/GlenTe00-1.php)'s situation remains muddled. It has to be resolved before the team flies to California on July 24 for training camp, so there's a deadline there. Glenn was wise to re-hire his agent, Jim Gould. He has been with Glenn for a long time including some tougher times in Glenn's career. The Cowboys have been waiting for Glenn to agree to an injury-risk related contract settlement pertaining to his chronic right knee problem.

Well... This is interesting. I will guess that Glenn's trade value won't be what Jerry Jones may want, so I think he will let Glenn come back before this July 24th deadline.

Question: How quickly will Felix Jones (http://www.footballguys.com/JoneFe00-1.php) progress?
Todd Archer: Marion Barber will be the every-down back, but they don't want to burn him out with 300-plus carries this season. Jones looked fluid coming out of the backfield catching passes in off-season camps. It helps that the running game has similar terminology to what he had at Arkansas. He needs to show he can be more than just a speed threat. Julius Jones (http://www.footballguys.com/JoneJu01-1.php) had about 12 touches per game in 2007. The Cowboys would want Felix Jones (http://www.footballguys.com/JoneFe00-1.php) to have about 10 to 12 this season.

I expect Felix Jones to get 12 touches a game picking up where Julius Jones left off.

Jerry Jones announced that the Cowboys will waive Glenn. They are not closing the door on the possibility that he will rejoin the team down the road, but they don't want to risk him reinjuring the knee while rehabbing on their dime. Glenn will also be free to sign with another team.

Jerry Jones wanted Glenn to sign an injury waiver just in case he re-injures his knee. Glenn refused. Glenn cut... Bottom line here is when Jerry Jones says jump and sign the waiver, you jump and sign the waiver. Don't try to challenge Jerry Jones. It won't get you too far.

If early indications mean anything, although sometimes they don't in training camp, then Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber's backup, rookie Felix Jones (http://www.footballguys.com/JoneFe00-1.php), might play a larger role than expected. Jones has been electric at times in training camp, showing impressive speed and vision. Running backs coach Skip Peete has been raving about him. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett does not yet have a set formula for how the carries will be split between the running backs.

Good for Felix. I think he can be very productive in the NFL. Barber's running style is one that could get him hurt a lot, so inserting Jones more often will help soften those chances.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has approved the reinstatement of Cowboys CB Adam "Pacman" Jones. Jones will now be available to play in the regular season opener versus Cleveland.

Well this should have actually been expected. No way Jerry Jones makes the deal for him if he wasn't going to be able to play.

When the Dallas Cowboys open their season, they will have only two wide receivers on the active roster who have an NFL reception. Yet, HC Wade Phillips didn't seem too worried about that today. Expect to see Jason Witten (http://www.footballguys.com/WittJa00-1.php) line up in the slot a lot against the Browns. "Witten can be a third receiver," Phillips said. "Obviously, he's a force as a pass receiver...There's no reason you can't give it a Colts look where you've got Witten put in the slot like they did with [Dallas] Clark." Phillips mentioned that they can move Witten around because the other tight ends are playing well. MacMahon speculates that rookie TE Martellus Bennett (http://www.footballguys.com/BennMa00-1.php) should have a significant role in the season opener, and that RB Felix Jones (http://www.footballguys.com/JoneFe00-1.php) is another guy the Cowboys can use in the slot.

Great idea for Witten as well as another way to get Felix in the game.

You're a nitbag if you think Witten is his first look. On most passing plays (except those intended to go very short), a QB will always look to his WR before his TE. He will look to see if he has the long ball, if not go shorter to the TE. Here are some quotes I found from C&D site.


Don't think for a second that Owens' stats will decline sharply because Williams is joining the Cowboys.


Witten will still be a very useful Fantasy option -- don't think twice about benching him -- but his stats will take a tumble from time to time with Williams helping the offense down the field. If anything, he'll still be used in the red zone and on other short-area plays.

Ask Romo. Before every Cowboys game the announcers always say the defense has to take Witten away because he is Romo's go to guy 1st. Romo may be a TE, but he isn't a TE. This is why TO was crying that one time because he was actually 3rd on Romo's look chart. But they kissed and made-up and all is better between them.

It's turning into the same situation that it was in Philly. A quarter of the way into last season Dallas looked to be the elite team of the NFC and a super bowl favorite. Things kind of fell apart, and now this season is showing that Dallas is not an elite team in their conference. If TO is playing on a winning team and catching passes, he's happy. If he's not, then this is what happens. I'd guess his time in Dallas is about up, and we'll be seeing him somewhere else next season. Maybe he'll go to the NY Giants and replace Plex there

Now that I have been in Texas for about 2 months - people here are ready to fight you if you say you don't like the Cowboys - seriously they are. They absolutely hate the Redskins and the Steelers with a passion I have never seen before.

They think North Carolina is northern state - I'm constantly hearing you don't sound like your from up north.

I'm also finding once you distance yourself from some of the larger population centers it becomes a cross between Deliverance and The Hills have Eyes in the type of people you will encounter.

Todd Archer, of The Dallas Morning News, reports Dallas Cowboys WR Roy Williams (http://www.footballguys.com/WillRo04-1.php) can't understand why he has been the target of critics this offseason who aren't sure if he can emerge as the team's No. 1 wide receiver. Williams feels he will prove the doubters wrong once the season begins. 'People say, 'Hey, you're our No. 1 receiver,' and say, 'I hope you can do it. Good luck," Williams said. 'I've been a No. 1 ever since I was 1. But I can't really talk about it. I just got to continue getting in shape and prove it September whatever the day it is in Tampa.'

Another player with motivation. With Williams though, he has been given chances and chances and people are just fed up with the results. Almost sounds like he was a Raider! Haha... Anyway, I expect Williams to go a two rounds later than he used to, so you could potentially find a steal.

Williams barked at Romo Monday, June 15, after a pass didn't come his way when he was open. Williams said, "I was frustrated and I let him know, but that's what we're supposed to do. This is our job. His job is to deliver the ball. My job is to catch it and get open. That's how you win, and that's all I want to do.

Wade Phillips appears to be making good on his promise after last season to get tougher. On Wednesday, he announced he would increase the fines for players who report to training camp overweight to the league maximum of $453 per pound. And players say he's much more vocal during practice.

Where the hell did they come up with the number $453 for every pound you are overweight??

Anyway on Wade. This is nice and all, but he already dug his hole to deep. Are players really going to respond to a coach who has been a easy on them and a coach that is likely playing for a job next year? We'll see if Wade can bring his team together.

Todd Archer, of the Dallas Morning News, reports that QB Tony Romo (http://subscribers.footballguys.com/players/RomoTo00-1.php) has taken a leadership role on the Cowboys this offseason. Head coach Wade Phillips compared Romo to Jim Kelly and John Elway, saying Romo is "similar in that he was at every workout during the offseason, and the rest of the players look at that, and if you have anybody slacking off during the offseason you can go to them and say, 'Look, Tony Romo (http://subscribers.footballguys.com/players/RomoTo00-1.php) is out there working; you need to be working.' That really helps with your football team."

I love this.... Comparing Romo to Jim Kelly and John Elway.

I also read that Michael Irvin is calling for the Cowboys to bench Romo and bring back Drew Bledsoe!

You obviously didn't get the sarcasm in that line, did you KK? :rolleyes::D

Irvin said that because people were complaining about Romo. He hasn't looked that good so far this offseason (over-throwing and missing targets by 10 yards) and Irvin said what he said to remind everyone how bad it was when Bledsoe was at the QB in his last 2 years.



“Can we get Drew Bledsoe (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/2359/;_ylt=AmgEP7Y4vtVwNTSzQPlSdoTsYNAF)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/2359/news;_ylt=Al_b9ajZw0LpdKfbgcKJDDXsYNAF) back out here [for] just a week so you guys can really fall back in love with Tony?” asked Irvin, a man with the gift of both Hall of Fame grab and gab. “Let’s put Drew Bledsoe back out here, because sometimes when you have a pretty girl for awhile, you forget how pretty she is. But when you throw the ugly girl next to her, you say, ‘No, I’m really doing well.’ Maybe we need to bring Drew out so we know we’re really doing well.”

Ouch!


While Irvin’s jokes were at a high expense to Bledsoe, the point was well taken. People forget that by Bledsoe’s last two years, his combination of clay feet and slow internal clock made him the target of pass rushers everywhere.

Dallas WR Roy Williams went down in Thursday's practice with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. There were some reports that he had broken his collarbone. However, the Dallas Morning News said X rays were negative and that Williams did not have a broken collarbone.

It is absolutely incredible that Miles Austin is now #10 recieving yards, #9 YPG, #2 recieving touchdowns, #1 20 yard grabs, and #2 40 yard grabs.

What makes it incredible is that he started the season with 5 receptions for 80 yards over four games and only one touchdown. Then, over the next 3 games, he got 500 yards and five touchdowns on 21 receptions.

Those 3 games must be near the best set of 3 consecutive games in WR history.

What an amazing story, I hope he keeps it up.

Playing KC, Seattle, and Atlanta no doubt helped (28th, 18th, and 31st in pass defense respectively). While he does have a great story, I'd really like to see what happens when he goes up against a solid 2ndary like the Eagles.

Coverage isn't what I think Miles Austin has benefited from as much as poor angles of pursuit and bad tackling. A good secondary takes better angles and doesn't let a 10 yard catch turn into a 65 yard TD.

Most of that is credit to his legs. I see him turning moderate catches into big gains more than I see him catching longer balls but thats just what little I've watched Dallas play. Based on the top 2 20yd and 40yd catches stats, I'm sure he must go for more long balls than I see, but I think most of those are crated with his legs. Whats very promising for him (Espicially from a fantasy standpoint) is hes one of the msot competitive in the league in the endzone and is one of those rare guys a QB will trust to just toss up a prayer into the corner of the endzone and take his chances.

Am I the only one who thought the Eagles got robbed on the measurement during McNabb's 4 & 1 plunge?

Yeah, what a time for the biggest play of the game. Horrible decision to kick the field goal by the Eagles on the next drive, I think that will be questioned for weeks.

4th and 11 with 4:27 left in the game, the FG was the only choice he had. DEF had plenty of time to stop them and get the ball back.

No, he was robbed. He definitely had the 1st down.

It seems like the officials are super stingy on overturning calls on challenges this year. McNabb was clearly on top of the o-lineman and slid forward past the line to gain, but because they couldn't see his left leg there's a chance it was down, so no overturning the call on the field.

I don't know if they're just getting a chip on their shoulder or what, but in every game I've watched this year it just seems like they're trying to find ways to not overturn calls on the field at all costs

Not with no timeouts. That was NOT the only choice and it was the worst option available to him. With no timeouts it takes ONE first down to run out four minutes of clock.

It was a bad decision that did not have enough thought put into it.


Look at it this way. You miss 4th down and your defense STILL has a chance to do the same thing. Cowboys only start 20 yards ahead of average field position. If they make a couple first downs you lose either way (No matter where they are on the field) so from Philly's perspective it doesn't matter where Dallas starts. They basically had a free opportunity to continue their hopes of a tying touchdown.

At least you give your offense a chance. With even one timeout it becomes more wise to not go for it but with 0 timeouts they pratically had no choice. He made the wrong decision.

Its exactly the way it has to be. 100% conclusive or nothing. If they drop that mentality for anything it starts a downward slope that ends in everyone being WAY less happy with the challenge system than we are now. Its fine the way it is, yes occasionally a team will get screwed but if you remove the need for 100% indisputable evidence, then much more teams will get screwed.

I agree, but on that particular play it appeared to me to be 100% conclusive that they needed to re-spot the ball, but they used the excuse of not knowing where his left leg was to not do that. To me, if you can't see where his left knee is, and you can only see that he's on the lineman and the ball was at a different spot, then that's conclusive.

There have been a few other replays I can remember this season that seemed pretty conclusive to me as well that have not been overturned. And while I'm not a fan of the 2-minute long explanation of the call, I would like more than "after review, the ruling on the field is confirmed." At least give me a little explanation

Wow, what a huge choke by Romo. After a fantastic game and in the middle of a hugely productive drive with 5 mins to go (needing 2 TDs), he blows a WIDE open guarenteed 40 yard TD to Roy Williams and then makes two lame decisions on third and forth down and fails to get 3 yards in 2 plays for the game-sealing turnover on downs.

Welcome back to December, Romo.

IMHO, the most amusing part of the game on Monday night was Jerry Jones' facial expressions. He looked like he was going to burst into flames towards the end.. :lol:

There are at least 3 NFL coaches being saved right now by the potential lockout, no? No one wants to start a mid season rebuilding process when there may be no next season..

I don't think that the lockout plays into it, especially with someone like Jerry Jones. What is saving Phillips and other coaches in similar positions is that there really is no benefit to changing coaches midseason. Plus, any coach worth shit is going to want to assemble a staff of "his guys" and it is near impossible to do that in the middle of a season.

This was a funny quote I saw today in an article Tom Kowalski wrote about the Lions.





Is general manager Martin Mayhew the right guy for the job?

There's a big difference between collecting talent and building a team. After eight years of Millen, fans were happy the Lions could draft somebody who managed to stay in the league for a few years.

But that doesn't build a winning football team, that builds the Dallas Cowboys.

Breaking News!!

Training at Cowboys stadium was delayed nearly two hours this morning, after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the ground. After a complete analysis, Dallas Police forensic experts determined the white substance, unfamiliar to most of the players, was the goal line. Practice was resumed and officials were assured that the cowboys will not come into contact with this substance for quite some time.

Jerry Jones wasn't going to go out and recruit a top tier coach who knows tomorrow may never come. Wade Phillips had to go, it's just a debacle in Dallas, but Garrett is a "we're fucked, a warm body will do" place holder. I think if there was no doubt about the next season, there'd be no harm in getting up to speed with your team and bringing in someone like Cowher (though I don't think he'd work for Jerry Jones in 5000 million years).

The guys on Around the Horn made a good point that the Cowboys are at their best when there's a coach who won't put up with Jerry Jones' shit (as much as possible). Wade Phillips just did whatever Jerry wanted, and that's a big part of why they're in the position they're in. If someone like John Gruden were to go in there, things would probably be different

That's a small part of it, IMHO. Sure, Jerry moonlighting as the GM makes things tough but it also goes to say that the coaches that won't put up with his shit are also the best coaches. If Gruden went there, I think that things would get better but I give more credit to the fact that he's just a better coach. I see Wade and Norv as being similar.......Solid coordinators, nice guys, no business being a head coach. Both have had arguably the most talented teams in their respective conferences for years and neither has done shit.

Yeah I dont think he's going anywhere, I think he loves being on TV to much right now as well

Another name I have heard with the Dallas job is Fox from the Panthers, pretty good bet he's done with the Panthers this season, alot of people seem to think he could be the next coach in Dallas.

Just noticed this now. I am quite sure that has more to do with them stealing him from NFLN and nothing more. There is no way that any TV gig will keep someone from the sidelines if they want to return.

^ Most of those ex coaches in the booth have a clause wrote into their contract that will allow them to return to the sidelines without penalty. This benefits the network in many ways and keeps them in good faith with the talent whether athlete or coach.

Plus they are more worried about these guys jumping networks than going back to the sidelines.

I hate the Cowboys, but I do have a pretty big man crush on Tony Romo, and I have to give him props for that game last night. It was hilarious watching their center just snap the ball whenever he wanted to, and having Romo have to tell all of their WRs where to line up and what routes to run even after calling the play in the huddle. I tip my cap to you Tony Romo, that game was way more entertaining to watch than I thought it would be :lol:
