This isn't the first time it's affected a game, is it?

/Jerry knew exactly what he was doing.

Thanks, Romo.

It is the second time that a punt has hit the vidja board in preseason. It has never hit it during the regular season.

It was hit once in the first preseason game ever. Never during an actual game.

When I was at the Silver and Blue debut I sat on the 50 yard line 2 rows up & watched him try to hit it. Took a couple of tries but he hit it just like what happened in the game. Not sure why it's an issue for it to happen in a meaningless preseason game, though. It's within the league's specifications.

that kinda pisses me off.  remember all the handwringing here and elsewhere when the NFL announced the rule change or whatever, for if a punt hits the damn thing?  all the hullabaloo and for naught.

NAUGHT, I say!

Man its not fair at all to compare Romo to Sanchez. Romo is a real NFL qb, Sanchez is just a foot fetishist's hook up.

I think its stupid they rekick.  Punters in the nfl should have absolute control of their kicks.  Dont want it to fark up your kick?  Dont hit it.

Look at their motherfarkin gotch-eyed coach...

Yes sir, Jerry Jones must be pretty psyched about that videoboard of his right about now.

It's just a click-grab. They know we'll talk Cowboys all day so they'll put basically anything up with the word "Tony Romo" in it.

i find it ironic that Tannenbaum is now an agent, after putting his signature to one of the more inexcusable contracts in recent league history.  how much are the Jets on the hook for, right now, guaranteed, to say nothing of whatever he got in the first 2-3 years of his tenure?  I think they locked into him for about $20 or $22M.  there were some stories in the preseason about how wedded they were to his contract.

unreal.

The rekick is for the benefit of the return team.

Punters do have control, which is why this only happens during practice pre-season.

Rage? Just because I'm right about something & you don't like it, that doesn't I'm angry. You overestimate the anger contained in my pixels.

I tried to tell y'all and then you're like, NO IT'LL BE THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD, and then it wasn't, but did anyone come back and say, "Damn, I should've listened to Di?" No. Not one of you little ungrateful little trolls said thank you. Well YOU'RE WELCOME and you should listen to me more in the future.

$82,000 worth of incentives to attend workouts, apparently. That will buy you a lot of cigarettes in prison.

derrrr, money you got for "voluntary" working out.  don't you remember the story abotu the 49er who didn't know he had to work out at the team facility to get his bonus?

OK HERE YOU GO

Cornerback scheduled to earn $2.925 million in the final year of his contract. However, since Brown opted to do his offseason training at his home in Texas, instead of participating in the 49ers' workout program in Santa Clara, Calif., that escalator has voided and his base salary has returned to his original $925,000, a source with knowledge of Brown's contract details confirmed to "Shutdown Corner". Brown was also scheduled to receive a $75,000 workout bonus, but that has vanished, as well.

OUCH!!!!

I drafted tony romo as my starting ff qb. I got him in the 8th. The room laughed (giants fans). He's tony homo they said. He's not an nfl qb they said.

Romo is a decent FF qb. RG3 to me is the more untested bet amongst those 2.

I figured rgtrois had enough upside to justify being a closely drafted back up qb. But week 1 matchup is a puzzler. Romo vs gnats or red epidermis versus Oregon 1.1.

Sounds like you're in a league with some morons. Did you remind them Tony was the 9th highest fantasy point scorer last year? Or were you waiting to surprise them later when you drafted the 6th?
 
2013-08-26 06:25:18 PM
Aren't the giants on their 3rd stringers to start at this point? Though chip kelly's defense isn't exactly vaunted either. I'd say go for RG3 against the iggles, at the very least it would be the conventional wisdom.

Wait who was sixth? It can't be Robbie can it? Thought he missed 2 games.
 
2013-08-26 06:26:58 PM
  Both times the ball didn't hit the screen framework, but that stupid Mistubishi sign hanging below the framework. Just move the advertisement to the top of the screen, instead of below it.
 
2013-08-26 06:28:13 PM
Romo looks confident more than usual, and mentally, I believe Dez is ready.  I even saw flashes of the old Miles Austin this past game running in the middle of the field. Of course one time it was in the end zone so he couldn't get hit, but he was wide open for a TD.  .
A reminder of what Romo has already accomplished for being a bum.  Unfortunately anything short of a Super Bowl will always be failure for a Cowboys superstar.

It was. Standard scoring, all players:

Brees
Brady
Rodgers
Newton (in spite of his abysmal start)
Peyton Manning
RG3
Adrian Peterson
Matt Ryan
Tony Romo

and then quite a bit of space

and then at #20 is Eli Manning, under Andy Dalton and Josh Freeman, heh.

If only you had that list when they all laughed.

Yeah and the Vikings in theory want Ponder to throw a 20 yard + touchdown, but we all know that sure as fark is not going to happen.

You do bring up the point RG3 might not actually play, where as Romo is guarenteed to start.

Demarco Murray *can* run and this new offensive coordinator is going to at least try, unlike last year when Jason Garrett decided "fark it I'm going full Andy Reid" and had the Cows pass 65% of the time. He'll run like crazy until his knees explode in week 3 or whatever tragedy befalls him.

That's so funny because in our draft, Eli wasn't picked up until the very end as someone's backup. Hm. Of course, Romo was one of my keepers, so it wasn't even a question where he went. :)
