Junior Miller of the Ticket calls for Tony Romo to throw more interceptions

I was flabbergasted this morning while listening to my favorite sports (and guy) talk radio station, KTCK 1310, the Ticket. The Musers (easily the best show on the Ticket) were discussing this year’s Cowboys’ offense, which has taken a decidedly conservative turn. Co-host Junior Miller actually called for more Romo interceptions. Well, he didn’t demand [...]

Brian Waters down! Cowboys offensive line watered down

No NFL team drafted Waxahachie native and North Texas alum Brian Waters. The Dallas Cowboys signed him as an undrafted free agent in 1999. He was slotted to play the fullback position, but was released during training camp. The Kansas City Chiefs picked up Waters and moved him to the offensive line, where he became [...]

Have the Cowboys gotten all of the mileage out of Miles Austin?

Remember when Miles Austin burst onto the scene? The undrafted Monmouth alum established himself as the replacement for Terrell Owens when he caught 10 Tony Romo passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009. Before the 2011 season, Austin signed a $54 million contract extension, which he received based [...]

The deride Tony Romo, calling him a choke artist and (wrongly) insisting that he “always” melts down at the worst possible time. Never mind that in 100 starts (Sunday’s victory over the new-look [...]

Consequently, Romo finished the game 17 of 24, threw for three touchdowns and had no interceptions. It was one of [...]

Is Brian Urlacher the best middle linebacker in Bears' history?

OK, #NFL History class is about to begin with a two-question quiz: Is Brian Urlacher the best middle linebacker in Bears’ history? Does it matter? The answer to the first question will probably be directly related to your age. If you are, say 60ish, you will say, “Hell, no! Dick Butkus is peerless, baby. Not [...]

Blast from the past has passed on: Chuck Muncie dies at 60

Chuck Muncie dies and brings to life a flood of precious football memories for me and my generation of NFL fans. That is the thing about life. The longer you live, the more death is a part of it.

Amani Toomer says Tony Romo is better than Eli Manning

Amani Toomer prefers Romo Amani Toomer once benefited from Eli Manning passes. When he was lining up against the Cowboys; however, he may have been looking with longing eyes towards the Cowboys' sideline and another gun-slinger, of sorts—QB Tony Romo. At least that is what Toomer's statement on Sirius radio might lead one to believe. [...]
