Can young gun Romo take Dallas all the way?

New, comments

Tim Layden over at SI.com says a young QB could lead his team to the promised land this year.

Here's his bottom line on Romo:

Prognosis: There's not a lot to hate about Romo at this point. His quick feet and quicker release will make him tough to pressure consistently and his reads have been solid for a month and a half. He will make some mistakes, but he will offset them with more big plays. He can take the Cowboys to a January date in Chicago (or maybe even in Dallas) and give the Cowboys a great shot at reaching the Super Bowl.

He has more on Romo, so go check it out.

The Cowboys are the big draw in the NFL, there's no two ways about it. This article points out that the Cowboys have been involved in three of the top four games in TV ratings this year.

The Cowboys are Muhammad Ali, Sinatra or Elvis, depending on who you talk to.

John Madden, SNF analyst: "Not everybody that watches them is a Dallas Cowboys fan that wants to see them win. It's the whole Muhammad Ali thing. There were a lot of people who wanted to see him win and there were a lot of people who wanted to see him lose, and then you take them and you add them all together and there's a lot of people watching. I think it's the same thing with the Cowboys."

Gaudelli: "I kind of look at them like Sinatra or Elvis -- timeless. Whether you're born in the '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s or '90s, and you're a fan of music, you'll know those two names and you will always take a glance at least if you hear those two names. I think the same with the Cowboys."

Michael Smith over at ESPN looks at the job Sean Payton has done in New Orleans.

John Clayton on the Saints injury situation:

New Orleans Saints: Even though he didn't do any team drills, wide receiver Marques Colston did some work in practice and has a 50-50 shot at playing Sunday against the Cowboys. He's missed two games with a high ankle sprain and remains listed as questionable. He's needed because wide receiver Joe Horn didn't practice all week because of his groin injury and will probably miss the game. Horn is also listed as questionable. Defensive end Will Smith should be back after missing a week because of a knee injury. He's questionable but should be able to go. Running back Aaron Stecker is doubtful with a hamstring injury and won't play.

Clayton also does a short preview of the Cowboys/Saints game.
