    Analysts Jon Weiner, Scoop Jackson and Jorge Sedano recently joined ESPN's First Take to talk about the Cowboys. Here are some highlights:

    On if the Cowboys will win more than eight games this year:

    Weiner: “I’m done with Tony Romo. For that reason and that reason alone and it’s probably unfair to this Cowboys team, but I’m basing this solely on Tony Romo. But it’s kind of unfair because Romo is statistically a pretty good quarterback. I don’t know. For whatever reason I think Dallas takes a step back this year. They have enough talent but because of Romo, I see them winning seven or eight games this year.”

    Jackson: “I have them going over, but it’s a meaningless 9-7. Hey, you know, we got to 9-7 so we might not win the division or take the playoffs. Romo is going to continue to have the same problems that he’s always had. He can’t finish big. He can’t do anything to get outside himself. He’s going to cost them a game or two. It’s the same thing. They’ll go 9-7, but it’s a meaningless 9-7.”

    Someone want to remind them that they won 8 games last year? Not exactly a step back if they win 8 this year.

    Why would starting the same quarterback make you "take a step back"? If he wants to dislike TR that's his privilege, but his statement is totally illogical.

    We may get sent home late in the season because of Tony Romo but he will not be the reason we only win 7 games.

    If these guys said it, it must be true.
    That in-depth logical reasoning was overwhelming.

    This is generally true of every single QB in the league.

    This is the kind of talk I expect from two fat guys sitting at a table in Mickey D's - not what I'd expect from a national sports journalist - how far have we fallen?

    REALLY FAR.

    I am old enough to remember reading SI in the 70's back when they were chock full of top writers. Now? I do not bother.


    Frankly there are only a few worth reading anymore- anywhere.

    A playoff run -- a couple of wins and/or reaching the NFC Championship game would go a LONG way in quieting this kind of chatter re: Romo.

    Hopefully the Cowboys make that kind of run at least once in Romo's career.

    They're not pretending to be Cowboys fans, and they didn't come here to post their commentary, so, no.

    I'm not going to criticize their opinion, because I don't necessarily disagree. But I hate when the words come from an outside source. Maybe because I feel like they're completely uninformed? I dunno. It would be different if they were cowboys fans.

    Until the Cowboys do something, I don't know what everyone expects. Hopefully this will light a fire under them but only time will tell. Maybe it's better that no one expects anything out of them. They never did anything when they were picked to go to the SB. Sometimes it's best to play under the radar.

    Been down since eiht-deuce, don't tell me im "pretending".

    I wish I were "pretending", then I wouldn't lose so much sleep the week after losses.

    I just happen to believe our QB is the main reason for many of those losses.

    I didn't say you were pretending, and I never said you were a troll. You specifically asked about trolls in the context of this thread, and trolls often pretend to be fans of the sites they troll. I was just answering your question.

    I believe you're a red-blooded fan just like most of the rest of us. You just don't have an accurate grasp on the quality of our QB play, but you're hardly alone in that.

    The same way they print a headline that "Dan Conner, a NY Giant player, got arrested at an AP" and show him in a Cowboy uniform. I kid you not, they actually said in the article "a NY Giant player!!!! These people are very special.

    I expect news reporting with some resemblance of integrity. Even if it is opinion/commentary. Have some integrity about yourself. This is your profession. This is not kindergarten or jr. high school. Their commentary sounds so personal. You don't hear that tone about any other team.

    Think its pretty far fetched to say they have the talent and Romo will be the problem and reason we only win 7 games. Its like they didn't watch any cowboy games last season.
