An Open Letter to Tony Romo

Dear Tony,

The day has come where we will say goodbye to you, and be forced to watch you play out your days in another uniform than our beloved Cowboys. You came on the scene in surprising fashion, and were not expected to be in the NFL, much less a starting NFL quarterback for this long. But you showed the league and many fans in Dallas, it’s not the size of the QB, or even the talent level of the QB. But it is the heart of the QB, and you had a heart as big as the state of Texas.

Your time in Dallas was as rocky as the mountains you are rumored to be heading for, but even the most unrealistic fan will admit, your time here was more good than bad. Sure, there were mistakes, and issues along the way, but in the end, you gave every Cowboys fan the one thing they wouldn’t have had with you…hope, you gave us hope. Which is something we had very little of after Aikman and before you. We all hoped you would win a championship in Dallas, and it seems tragic, that you didn’t. But as you have gotten older and more injury prone, we needed a youthful option to look forward.

I just want to say thank you for the years you gave our beloved Cowboys and will wish you the best and hope for success going forward. The only time I won’t root for you is when you are on the opposing side of the field from my Cowboys. If you are lucky enough to win a Super Bowl in another uniform, I will cheer for you, but will still wish you were a Cowboy.

So, Farewell Tony, and best of luck for the remainder of your career. May the only game you lose is to Dallas. Finally, thank you for giving us your everything and keeping us relevant, even when the cards were stacked against us.

Sincerely,
Dallas Cowboys fans everywhere

This is the 2nd time in his career he won’t play at least 13 games. He broke his clavicle in 2010, and twice this year, but he has also had back surgery during the off-season last year.

Could Matt Stafford be a Cowboy???

Stafford-RomoRick Gosselin recently wrote an article about Stafford being an heir apparent to Romo in the Dallas Morning News. Which has led me to start thinking, while the Cowboys are going “all in” on winning a title with Romo, he is nearing the end of his career and with his recent injury struggles, he may only have two years max.

Matt Stafford on the other hand, is young and has the talent to really be something special in the NFL. Unfortunately for him, he has been stuck in the wasteland that is Detroit. He has put up some good numbers, proven his worth as an NFL quarterback but his results have not reached the lofty expectations the Detroit fans want.  Continue reading

Is it time to Panic for the Cowboys?

Weeden CowboysWhen this season started, there was a lot of hope, a lot of expectations and even some boasting about having the best team top to bottom since the great teams of the 90’s. But the NFL is a fickle beast and can snatch anything good away from you in an instant.

The season began with a lot of promise, and boasting by the fan base as the Cowboys won a thriller on opening night, then proceeded to dismantle Philadelphia in week two. But if there is something to be said about the first two weeks, the Cowboys roster began to look more like a MASH unit, then a football team. Continue reading

Cowboys Sign Greg Hardy; but at what cost?

The Dallas Cowboys made another splash in free agency when they signed free agent, Greg Hardy. But this signing comes with a lot of trepidation from the Cowboys fan base. Most of the time, a fan base cheers when a big name player is signed to their team. But in this case, Hardy is part of a few players who no fan wants associated with their team. He was charged and convicted of domestic abuse in North Carolina, but then the charges were dropped.
