Cowboys, Romo Come Back For OT Win In SF

At the conclusion of the Dallas Cowboys' first game of the 2011 season, a loss to the New York Jets, Cowboy fans in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex were screaming for the head of Tony Romo. After his performance in Dallas' come from behind 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Romo will be elevated to sainthood for the rest of the week. Romo suffered two broken ribs during the game, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Despite the injury, Romo finished 20 - 33 for 345 yards and 2 TD's against the Niners.The win may have come at an additional cost. RB Felix Jones is said to have suffered a separated shoulder, while WR Miles Austin is hampered by a hamstring injury which orginally occured in the preseason. The Cowboys should hope that their guys are fast healers, because their bitter rivals, the apparently rejuvenated Washington Redskins, are bringing their 2-0 record to Cowboys Stadium next Sunday.


Cowboy fans should realize one thing by now. Tony Romo has been in the NFL for 6 seasons. With all of his ups and downs, Romo does not remind anyone of Roger Staubach or Troy Aikman. It's time to make peace with the fact that Romo will win some big games, and make you crazy with the manner in which the Cowboys will lose some games (see loss to the Seahawks in the playoffs). Dallas has to hope that they can fire on all cylinders and make a run to the playoffs and beyond. If not, blood pressure medication sales will rise in Dallas during the remainder of the 2011 season.


Questions:


Who out there believes the 2-0 Detroit Lions are for real? Will they whip the Packers the way they beat down the Kansas City Chiefs?   


Is it me, or do the Indianapolis Colts look like they are heading for a free fall to the bottom of the AFC South standings?


When will wide receivers who have accomplished nothing (Jason Hill, Jacksonville WR, 55 catches in 5 years) in the NFL stop running their mouths? Is Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets defense really overrated, or was the Jacksonville Jaguars offense just horrible in the Jets 32-3 win? (By the way, Hill did not play in the game)

A.L. West - Watch Out ! Here Come The Angels

As of this writng, the Texas Rangers are losing their grip on the A.L. West lead. They have just been demolished by the Boston Red Sox for the second straight game. Rangers manager Ron Washington has made statements to the effect that "I don't watch the scoreboard until mid- September." Manager Ron may want to rethink his stance. Why? No one really has to ask. That noise that you hear is not a hurricane blowing up the East Coast of the USA, it's a freight train named the Anaheim Angels. They have roared back from a seven game deficit, where a great number of observers had them giving up the chase and looking toward 2012. Mike Scioscia, Jered Weaver, Jordan Walden and company are having different thoughts. They have just finished whipping up on the Chicago White Sox (what will Ozzie Guillen have to say about that?) and have a golden opportunity to further demoralize the Rangers during their upcoming weekend series in Arlington. As I stated earlier, do the Rangers want to win the A.L. West? Their pitching has been shaky for the last week, as the Angels have gone on a six game winning streak. Pennants are not won in August, but a team can go a long way toward losing one during the dog days of 100 plus degree heat in Texas. Ron, you better start paying attention to the scoreboard. Nolan Ryan won't be happy if the division is lost after blowing a lead after all those personnel moves.


Questions:


Does anyone really think the Padres' Heath Bell is going to the Giants?


Speaking of the Giants, how is the Carlos Beltran trade looking right now? He hit one out of the park! What else has he done?


Who do the Washington Nationals think they are? Blowing off Prince Fielder before free agency starts? Yeah, he had every intention of playing in the nation's capital....
