Since the Saints are sucking ass and I'm not getting a lot of enjoyment out of the games I've switched to watching Tony Romo get his ass handed to him every week. Gotta get joy somewhere...

"Just because he wears a star on his helmet -- we all think that people who are Dallas Cowboys, 'Oh they're wonderful and ooh they're terrific, ooh they're the next Roger Staubach' or whatever the heck they want to say"

Not me. That star me tells me that he's overrated and he sucks ass. And I enjoyed the hell out of that game, especially the pick six.

My girlfriend beat her opponent in our league by less than 1 point. He was winless so far, and had Romo going in on Monday night only down 16 points. Thanks to those 5 beautiful picks, he finished with 15.28.

So thank you Romo for keeping the Browns of our league from winning anything, and making my girlfriend happy.

Romo's going to get benched in my fantasy league, in favor of Luck.
I'm hoping I can get something in trade for him.

Joe is still bitter for throwing 5 interceptions against the Cowboys in a Monday night game. ON HIS BIRTHDAY.

I have a football signed by Theismann; I received it as a baby when my parents and I were eating at his restaurant. "To a future Hall of Famer," it reads.

Thanks for that, Joe. It's enough to make me tie the noose.

Remember on King of the Hill how schools were named after Staubauch or Landry or other Cowboys legends? If it were still on the air, I get the feeling that Romo would get his name on a hazardous waste disposal site or a holding cell for drunks or a man made lake that's teeming with algae.

I like Cris Colinsworth as a commentator. He's no John Madden, mind you -- but he does a good job.

Jon Gruden, however ... so painful.

heh - was looking for that comment. Also love the fact that he changed the pronunciation of his
name to try to win the Heisman (fail).

I happened to see him in the Miami airport when he was hobbling furiously with the cast that LT delivered in something like early 1986. Yes, Cathy Lee Crosby was just behind and trying to keep up (extreme hotness definitely noted). I said "Hey Joe!" and he looked, and immediately thereafter I said "Go Giants!" (even though i am and have always been a dolphins fan) and he grimaced briefly before continuing to hobble furiously. I still love that memory.

Sorry about the following threadjack, but I'm gonna stir the pot and ask what you guys think of this trade::

I receive: MJD, Miles Austin, Andy Dalton, Mendenhall

I send: Nicks, Sproles, Stafford

On my bench:
QBs: Flacco, and Newton
RB: R. Bush, Mikel Leshoure
WR: Torrey Smith, Denarius Moore, Domenik Hixon

Eh?

I have the Bears defense on one fantasy team, and my opponent in my other league had Miles Austin and was down by 18 points, so I was really rooting for the Bears. And I'm a Lions fan.

Sure, do it. You aren't losing much from Stafford to Flacco, you're gaining a lot with the upgrade from sproles to MJD and torrey smith has been doing well.

SilentStrider:

Na just 1 QB. -I screwed up my draft and got two top 10 QBs instead of top 10 RB + QB. The other guy wanted to dump an extra QB in the process of upgrading, hence why I got Dalton as part of it.

Now onto rectifying this WR situation...

Yea that was pretty much my line of thought. At this point I want to try to use Dalton to get some kinda depth at WR.

I figured Gruden was so bad that he had to be doing some sort of character. They hype him so much on ESPN and especially ESPN radio. But he's almost too painful to put up with, even at the expense of watching MNF.

But Collinsworth I like.

I'm more of the opposite. Collinsworth just comes off as smug and says nothing insightful. Gruden at least goes into some coach-style detail occasionally.
 
2012-10-04 05:17:52 AM  
The problem is not that he sucks, it is more like while a good quarterback, he doesn't have the skills to succeed in the "system" he is placed in. I don't know if Jason Garrett is clueless or running teh offense and being head coach is too much for him. The Dallas offense reminds me of the Eagles offense under Buddy Ryan and Randall Cunningham. Just have Romo take the ball and "do something" each play.

Troy Aikman had more skills but Romo has better "stats". Aikman was kept in a system which exploited his strengths and hid his weaknesses. Romo needs a "system" built to his skills to where his "improvising" is only when the play breaks down ratehr than every play.

They also need a power runing game. Right now they just have Romo drop back an pass all the time. All the linebackers have to do is sit in the lanes and wait for the ball. Peyton Manning in hos prime would get picked off a bunch in his prime if haveing to deal with an offense like Dallas's.

Of course with Jerry Jones hand picking every position coach you have a bunch of "yes men" who answer to the owner rather than the best position coaches answering to the coach. The offense, defense, and special teams are on totally different pages.

Jerry Jones is the "new Al Davis". He just wears a business suit instead of a jumpsuit.

I always wondered where the Collinsworth hate comes from. He's a good analyst. The only things that drive me nuts are the obvious scripted talking points he's give, but everyone gets those.

Collinsworth occasionally appears on my local sports radio. When he does, he can give some pretty dense analysis. He shines in particular when it comes to talking about watching a play from the lines out, instead of always watching the ball.

If he didn't have to dumb it down a bit for TV, he'd be one of the best ever.
 
2012-10-04 08:25:31 AM  
Chris is probably not worried, he's a pretty cool guy
 
2012-10-04 10:05:07 AM  
Joe's right. Props for speaking the truth, rather than being all up in Romo's nuts like the rest of the sports media. Seriously, with Romo, it's year after year of excuses. Face it: he's a very good athlete, but he's an very average QB.

Which would be amusing, as he was such a mediocre player himself.

And why does he always speak through his gut, like he's trying to sound like a bigger guy than he is? You know his real voice is closer to Bob Saget's.

Collinsworth blows.

I am not a colts or donks fan, but I like what peyton said about INTS.

paraphrasing but, every int has a story but the fans dont want to hear that, when the ball leaves the qbs hand whatever happens is on the qb.

it is nice to see someone take responsibility.

His point was that they don't go and get new WRs, or come up with new routes, because it's NOT their fault.

Again, somehow, it's ALWAYS someone else's fault than Romo's, it seems. At what point do people acknowledge the obvious?

What's the obvious? He's a very good but not elite quarterback who occasionally shiats the bed in tremendous fashion? Jerry Jones is a hilarious egomaniac who doesn't know how to put together a football team?

He's still got close to a 2:1 TD:INT ratio and 8 yards/attempt. Lots of teams would swap QBs with Dallas in a heartbeat.

Right now? Name them.

KC, Tampa, Cleveland is all I've got.

How many teams want a $9-11 million per year Tony Romo? Andy Dalton is a 2:1 TD/INT guy with a 8+ yds/attempt too. Are there a lot of teams clamouring for him?

You're overreacting like crazy to one bad game.

How about the Eagles? $10M for Romo or $20M for Vick... let me think about that
Cutler is a poor man's Romo. The Bears switch.
The Seahawks, Jets, Dolphins, Bills, and Jags all need a QB who can occasionally win a game even if he'll sometimes blow them for you.

He's also an upgrade for Minnesota, Oakland, Arizona and a couple more teams but I'll assume that those teams will overrate their own guy on the basis of a couple early season wins.

Except, you know, in the case of the two INTs he's referring to... where it was *directly* his receiver's faults. Just because Theismann takes a dump on a Cowboys player doesn't change the fact that when you hit a receiver in his numbers and it pops up off his chest and to an opposing player, it's not your fault. You did your job.
