Hey there, stranger.
Future Jet/Brown/Bear/Bronco Tony Romo will reportedly see some action this weekend, because at this point his health is a lot less important to Dallas than Dak Prescott’s.
The Dallas Cowboys’ enviable quarterback question, which rookie Dak Prescott effectively answered with his play, has been flipped on its head: Why not use backup Tony Romo as you would, you know, the backup, and protect Prescott for the games that really matter?
After Sunday’s loss to the Giants, both owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett were adamant that Dak Prescott is the starter and Tony Romo is the backup. On Monday, Garrett reaffirmed his support of the rookie, declaring that Prescott is his quarterback. On Tuesday? Well, Jerry Jones just can’t help himself.
Let’s just make this clear right off the bat, before the blog machine starts rolling and before, god bless you, you listen to sports talk radio: I’m not saying there should be a quarterback controversy in Dallas. Only that it’s already here, and we are all powerless to stop it. Strap the fuck in.
The Dallas Cowboys have thrived with Dak Prescott at quarterback, and although Tony Romo has recovered from his back injury and had an advantage in terms of experience, Prescott is too good to sit. Romo spoke with media today for the first time this season and accepted that he’s no longer the starter.
The Cowboys played this perfectly, and got lucky, but there is now no question that Dak Prescott is their starting quarterback. Tony Romo practiced fully this week, and is healthy enough to play for the first time since breaking his back in preseason, but come Sunday against Baltimore, he’ll be holding a clipboard.
The Cowboys haven’t had much to say about their quarterback situation, which has only gotten more complicated as Dak Prescott has continued to play well and as Tony Romo’s back has continued to heal. But new report from ESPN suggests that the team will have to make a definitive choice sooner rather than later.
Rookie QB Dak Prescott has a seven-game track record that should be more than enough to secure him the starting job. Yet the Cowboys are still taking things week by week, refusing to make the choice until there actually is a choice. Prescott will be the starter next week against the Browns, owner Jerry Jones announced…
“Tony is our No. 1 quarterback,” Jerry Jones said Sunday night, settling a Cowboys quarterback controversy that’s really just getting started.
Cowboys QB Tony Romo could miss six to ten weeks with a broken bone in his back.
We have seen this before:
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback issues continued at their Oxnard, CA training camp this evening. Tony Romo had to deny that he was fat earlier today, but things have gotten much worse now, as his backup Kellen Moore just broke his ankle. He was apparently hurt at the line of scrimmage when someone rolled onto him, and…
The Dallas Cowboys had to deal with a controversy last week when a photo made quarterback Tony Romo look fat.
Way back in September, when the Cowboys were 2-0 and looking like they could win a weak NFC East, Tony Romo broke his collarbone. The injury held him out for eight weeks, during which the Cowboys went 0-7. With the NFC East a shitpile at that point (for the record, it’s still a shitpile), the 2-7 Cowboys were a long…
A bad game for the Dallas Cowboys got worse when quarterback Tony Romo was injured after Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis sacked him.
With the rest of the NFC East looking like a shambling mediocrity, the division seemed like it was the Cowboys’ to take. Then Tony Romo got hurt in the second half of Week 2, and the Cowboys haven’t won since. And yet, somehow, they’re not out of the playoff hunt yet, and Romo will return off IR to start this weekend…
Tony Romo broke his left collarbone today when Eagles rookie linebacker Jordan Hicks sacked him and forced a fumble in the third quarter of today’s game in Philadelphia. This is the same collarbone that Romo broke in 2010 that caused him to miss eight games. He didn’t have surgery for that injury, and it’s currently…
Chip Kelly says yes.
A Tony Romo-organized fantasy football convention scheduled for next month in Las Vegas was canceled after the NFL warned participating players that they’d be in violation of league rules. It sounded like a weak explanation at the time, and now Romo says the NFL was just mad it didn’t stand to make any money.
