Ten Thoughts On The Cowboys Win

1.  Say what you want about head coach Wade Phillips running training camps being “soft” or “easy”, but make sure you say they are effective.  The Cowboys as Wade said, “We ready to play.”

2.  The Cowboys were marvelous on 3rd downs.   On offense they were 8 of 11 for 72%.  That will win a lot of ballgames.  And on defense, the Cowboys were outstanding.  The Browns only converted three of nine attempts. 

3.  The Browns never got to run.  You have to run to win in this league.  The Cowboys defense only allowed 91 yards of rushing.  Jamal Lewis was 13 for 62 yards.

4.  Tony Romo spends time on football.  All that stuff about him playing too much golf in the offseason and hanging out with Jessica Simpson too much is wrong.  Romo threw for 327 yards.  That is his 11th 300-yard game in three seasons.  Troy Aikman had just 13 in his entire career.

5.  Patrick Crayton is a legit number two receiver.  Six catches 82 yards.  That is big time.  Go look around the NFL and you’ll see he’s really good when you start to stack up the numbers.

6.  The Cowboys drafted really well.  Rookies Orlando Scandrick, Felix Jones, and Tashard Choice played well.

7.  The offensive line got the game ball.  They simply knocked Cleveland around.  They didn’t allow a sack and you never saw their blitzes work.

8.  Matt McBriar had two punts.

9.  11 penalties.  Way too many.  The Cowboys have to focus better if they are going to win in the playoffs.  The Browns first touchdown came off two Cowboys penalties on third downs.

10.  The name Skip Peete will be one to remember this week.  If Pro Bowl running back Marion Barber can’t play because of sore ribs, Peete, the Cowboys running backs coach, will have to make sure rookies Tashard Choice and Felix Jones can pick up the Eagles blitzes.

TravelGolf.com: “Romo Attention Whore”

Yep, that headline will grab ya.  That’s what blogger Chris Baldwin of TravelGolf.com wrote. 

This is the headline of his blog:   Attention whore Tony Romo falls into a pond at Lake Tahoe Celebrity Classic, how typical of dunce Dallas Cowboys quarterback

In fact here’s the whole thing…

Tony Romo is making a public spectacle of himself on another golf course. This time, Romo went Woody Austin.

Yes, Aquaman has company. Say hello to the doofus Dallas Cowboys quarterback/attention whore Tony Romo as he falls backwards into the pond on the first hole at Edgewood Tahoe. That’s what Romo did in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship (which is a boring name for the best celebrity golf tournament out there) on Saturday.

Romo tried to hit out of a bunker with an awkward lie and found himself tumbling into the pond, where he landed on his butt (otherwise known as the smartest part of Romo’s anatomy). Romo told the Associated Press, “I got wet up to my belly button.”

With Romo, stuff like this is almost predictable.

The guy just can’t help himself. He’s going to find a way to make himself the center of attention while showing the lack of smarts that stops him from ever winning a single playoff game. Whether it’s bragging about shooting that 84 at Torrey Pines – that took him an unfathomable nearly seven hours to complete. Or butchering “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at Wrigley Field. Or falling ass first into the water.

That’s Romo. Leading with his head.

Being stuck with his guy couldn’t have happened to a better set of bandwagon fans. And it must be nice for Jessica Simpson to feel like she’s the smart one in a relationship. No wonder why she doesn’t want to give Romo up.

Wow!  Chris sure does have some hate for Tony Romo.  Can’t the guy just have fun and take advantage of the invites he gets without all the haters going after him?

Should the guy live his life in a closet?

I don’t know why the public thinks this kid should be at Valley Ranch 25 hours and 8 days a week.  Sorry, they have an off season.    Romo has some thick skin because some shots like this are just unfair.

Roger Clemens Is Not Credible Anymore

Former and I do mean former, because no team in their right mind would hire Roger Clemens to pitch for them now, expect the Texas Rangers.

Clemens apparently hasn’t been the most faithful husband or teammates through the years according to the New York Daily News.  The Rocket is saying he’s sorry:

On the eighth day, Roger Clemens apologized.

Following a week in which the Daily News reported his affairs with several women, Clemens released a statement Sunday night apologizing for “mistakes in his personal life,” while again denying he ever used performance-enhancing drugs.

“I know that many people want to know what I have to say about the recent articles in the media. Even though these articles contain many false accusations and mistakes, I need to say that I have made mistakes in my personal life for which I am sorry,” Clemens said in a statement handed to the Houston Chronicle, a favorite outlet for Clemens and his lawyer Rusty Hardin.

“I have apologized to my family and apologize to my fans,” Clemens said. “Like everyone, I have flaws. I have sometimes made choices which have not been right.”

I wonder if all those Republicans on Capitol Hill are still behind Clemens.  He’s making those who did look real dumb.
