    Sport78 bet your wrong

    3 Joseph Randle, Terrance Williams and Gavin Escobar will have more combined TD's than DeMarco Murray, Miles Austin and Jason Witten.

    doubtful

    Sure wouldn't be the first time and definitely won't be the last! I'm gonna add a prediction or two after training camp just for fun.

    You honestly want me to prove that Tony Romo was eating Twinkies?! :D

    To gain weight, you must be in a caloric surplus, which Tony was. Whether those excess calories came from Twinkies, Fig Newtons or bananas...heck, we'll never know.

    Not worried about Romo's weight at all. He'll drop to his normal playing weight by the end of camp. What I'm concerned about is the hamstring injuries suffered during the conditioning test. These guys must've been in terrible shape going in.

    This is incorrect. To gain FAT you must be in a caloric surplus. To gain weight you could have just been retaining water at the time of the weigh in. For all we know Romo drank a gallon of water (roughly 8 lbs worth) before the weigh in, had too much sodium and his body "retained" more fluid than usual, etc...

    In other words, it's not an issue. Even if he DID gain a "whopping" 6 lbs of fat.

    At this point, Romo's weight is a non issue. But leave it to Cowboys fans to freak out about it. First day of camp!!! LOL

    Finally football is back!

    You can tell its the beginning of training camp because Berny, Livings and Ratliffe are already hurt. If Newman was still here, he'd be hurt too!

    But it still beats the heck out of the same, tired off season threads!

    It's not entirely going to be 100% "fat" or any other macronutrient in a caloric surplus. There are many other factors (such as water retention, sodium, etc.) that affect the muscle/fat ratio but that's for another day. Romo doesn't look like he gained muscle mass and the idea that he drank a gallon of water before the weigh-in is a huge hypothetical, and very unlikely. Drinking a gallon of water before a weigh-in doesn't change one's body composition. The guy looks out of shape.

    Well, Garrett is saying Romo is 1 lb. over his playing weight according to ESPN.
