    I actually said Romo played wonderfully... maybe you missed that because of all the cheerleading you do for Romo?

    If we can continue with some sort of running game then I see Romo having a spectacular season. But if we revert back to him throwing 40 plus times a game then we will start seeing more of his errors.

    The less Romo has to do for this team, the better. Yesterday was brilliant. I didnt hear so many kills. I wish we could rely on the running game every week. Unfortunately we dont play the Rams every week.

    I like this cautious Romo. The gunslinger in him made him exciting, but it also brings a lot of heartache too. You can tell he is making it a point to take care of the ball.

    People should not take anything away from the (apparent) lack of audibles yesterday other than that it was just a result of the particular game/situation. When you're up by three touchdowns, you can stick to whatever plan you want... and the last thing you want to do anyway is audible out of a run, since the clock is more your enemy than anything.

    Trust me, if the next game is competitive we'll be right back to audible-land and dwindling play clocks. That's what they do.

    I guess you don't realize the game starts 0-0. The Cowboys got the lead early BECAUSE of the running game. Geez.

    I believe Stan comes Eminem's song about this fictional character named Stanley, "stan" who was just obsessed over him. So I think people use "stan" to label anyone who seems to be head over heels over some celebrity/athlete.

    Job are you trying to work me? All those games are not germane to right now. I tell you what. Let's assume the Rams win 8 or 9 games this year, then lets bump this thread...

    Not at all. Most people thought this would be a good close game. Even Fisher said he never saw that coming. So if the HC was surprised by our play and expected a different game then perhaps we should consider they ran into a buzz saw. Can you say you saw that coming? I can't. I was surprised to say the least. Cause we sure didn't look like that before this Sunday. I think the Cowboys would have dominated most teams in the league Sunday. They put up a semi-stinker against the Chiefs with Romo and/or Callahan having a poor game IMO.

    We beat a decent Rams team. We'll see as the season goes by who is really what.

    But probably still less than he had when the line was protecting him so poorly. I mean, the running game didn't play very well against the Giants, and still the only interception he threw was because of the wrong route by a rookie. (There have been a couple of other dropped opportunities for interceptions, though, just like with any other QB.)

    I don't put people on ignore because all too often they are unintentionally funny, like those that claim their opinions are 'facts'

    I guess you don't understand the difference between a fact and an opinion.

    Sorry, but I don't fault Romo for checking out of runs during football games where his running back is getting 2 yards a carry.

    Please refrain from calling his comments dumb. I apparently really hurt his feelings in another thread about Romo.
