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.

Tony Romo’s Dad Gives His Thoughts On Jessica Simpson

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is very close with his dad.  You can say they are best friends. 

Ramiro Romo is a driven ex-Navy man who’s competitiveness has been passed down to his son.

I went up to their hometown of Burlington, Wisconsin, in July and asked Ramiro what he thought about his son dating celebrity singer Jessica Simpson. 

And for a bonus, I got Romo’s take on it as well.

Just click here to see what they had to say on the record only to NBC 5 Sports.

Tony Romo Needs To Have “The Talk” With Jessica Simpson

Take celeb website stories for what they are.  BUT….gotta like that…

I read something that just made me feel for Tony Romo.  Former girlfriend Carrie Underwood told Allure magainze Romo still calls her.  Underwood says Romo didn’t cheat on her.

Romo’s current girlfriend , Jessica Simpson, shot that down in a radio interview saying, “Tony and I both laughed at that…we got a chuckle out of it.” When the radio host asked the wannabe country singer if it was true, Jessica responded, “I know it’s not, I looked at his call log.”

Sounds like Cowboys QB Tony Romo needs to let Jessica Simspon have “The Talk.” 

No woman that doesn’t have your last name (i.e. your wife) should be checking your phone log. PEROID.

Time to let Jessica to know her role.  Romo can have female friends.  Bottom line, Romo has to put his girlfriend in check.  Have the talk now Tony.  Do it now.

Cowboy Camp Goes Hollywood

The stars came out to watch the afternoon practice.  Former Laker great Magic Johnson, actor Rob Lowe, and Terrell’s own Jamie Foxx.

Wade Phillips let Magice Johnson address the team.   He told them about his experience in losing the 1984 Finals to the Boston Celtics.  He used the next year to fuel him and the Lakers.  They beat the Celtics in Boston to win the 1985 NBA Title.

He emphasized the Cowboys have to police themselves.  If a player is messing up, someone needs to say, “Hey, you’re messing up my ring”.  By ring, Magic means championship ring. 

“You can’t win the Super Bowl today. What they have to do is come here to work on their skills and timing and get in shape. Then they have to start with the four preseason games. But then against Cleveland, that’s when it starts. Win your division and have the best record in the NFC. You can’t worry about the Super Bowl until the playoffs get here.”

Magic think the Mavericks are done.  He spoke of how the Cowboys needed to “take advantage of this window before it closes.  The window closed on the Mavericks.”   That’s gotta make new head coach Rick Carlisle feel great.

Foxx was trying to leave the complex after the practice, but NBC 5 tracked him down.  He is a big time Cowboys fans and started rolling off old school names like Bob Lilly,  billy Joe Dupree, Drew Pearson, etc.

T.O. came by and they both talked about each other and their experiences working the film, Any Given Sunday.  Foxx played quarterback Willie Beamon.

I didn’t have enough time to get over and talk to Rob Lowe.

We’ll have more on the 10PM News on NBC 5.

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.

Josh Hamilton Is The Man

I wanted to be apart of the dogpile at home plate last night when Josh Hamilton hit a 2-run walk off homer last night to beat the 1st place Angels.

I have never cared that much about Rangers baseball.  I like Josh personally and I marvel at his talent.

I was watching him battle K-Rod of the Angels and holding my kid.  Josh got a hold of it and and I was yelling “Go…go.  He did.  Home run.”    Hey, this is what you do on staycation…watch lots of TV.

I have said it before, Hamilton makes me want to watch Rangers baseball and I never felt that way when Pudge, Igor, or A-Rod played in Arlington.

The Rangers need a guy fans can cheer for who also mashes home runs.  Hamliton fits the bill.  Last night he was electrifying.

Jessica Simpson Meets Tony’s Parents at Olive Garden

The romance continues.   Do your thing Tony Romo!!  The Cowboys quarterback is kicking it in Wisconsin until training camp starts later this month in California.

The Tony N Jess love affair goes on strong.  People magazine reports Romo parents meet her at Olive Garden.  They report:

Perhaps bread sticks soothe nerves?Jessica Simpson, 27, met beau Tony Romo’s parents on June 27, when all of them had dinner at an Olive Garden in Janesville, Wisc.

 

Romo, 28, who grew up in nearby Burlington, was home to play in a golf tournament.

But making a reservation at the Olive Garden surprised even the restaurant’s general manager. “We thought it was a big joke,” said Doug Belfanz. “Jessica Simpson’s not going to the Olive Garden in Janesville, Wisconsin!”

Read the rest here.

Personally, I really like Joan and Ramiro Romo. I got to meet them last year in San Antonio.  His folks are good peeps.
