Skyler Green continues his up and down year with the Cowboys by getting cut to make room for safety Tony Parrish.

The Cowboys claimed safety Tony Parrish off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers and released running back-kick returner Skyler Green, a fourth-round draft pick.

Tony Romo is the NFC Offensive Player of the Month.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November, the NFL announced today.

In his first full month as an NFL starting quarterback, Romo completed 85 of 117 passes (72.6 percent) for 1,124 yards with nine touchdowns and one interception for an NFL-best 124.7 passer rating.

Romo posted a passer rating of at least 100.0 in three of the four games and guided Dallas to a 3-1 record.


Let's hope he's the NFC Offensive Player of the Month in January.

Yesterday, Parcells became irritated with reporters in the press conference when they kept asking about each individual lineman. Here's the story that they wanted to write, but Parcells didn't give them much to say. Even the linemen don't have much to say on the subject.

However, the linemen don't want any spotlight.

Adams grumbles a hello to a reporter every now and then.

Gurode, Kosier and Rivera speak from time to time, and Colombo talks in one- or two-word sentences.

Earlier this season, the linemen fined each other if they spoke to reporters without permission.


Marco Rivera seems to have assumed the role of unofficial spokesmen for the line.

JJ is healthy and ready for action. He wants more carries, but to his credit, he understands the situation.

"But the situation that we're in, we're winning, so I can't complain," Jones said. "It's selfish to want more playing time."

"I'm healthy, and [Parcells] has been talking about resting me or whatever, but I'm good and I'm ready to go whenever he needs me," Jones said.


Here's a shout-out to JJ, who's handled the situation very well. Many running backs in this league would be complaining to the press if they had the first-half of the season that JJ had, and then see their opportunities dwindle. Thanks for being a pro, JJ.
