The headline in the San Antonio Express-News read Romo, Ginobili two of a kind. So I had to check that out. What's the connection between San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili and Tony Romo?
Watching Romo castigate himself Saturday night in Seattle conjured up memories of the way Ginobili went into a deep funk following a pair of miscues in the playoffs last season.
Ginobili bounced back from his errors and it's a safe bet Romo will do the same. They cry and curse themselves because they care deeply about winning and their teammates. Those are the kinds of players that push franchises to greater heights. The Spurs are lucky to have Ginobili and the Cowboys should feel the same about Romo.
Oh boy, it's time for more of the Roy Williams debate. First, we had the quote from Jerry Jones yesterday.
Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News follows up with this:
I interpreted Jones' comments as another way of saying, "We need better personnel in the secondary, so we can allow Roy to play in the box." With that in mind, don't be surprised if the Cowboys search for another free safety in either the draft or free agency.
I wouldn't be surprised at all. But Mickey Spags isn't letting Roy off the hook that easy. The Mick is breathing fire in calling out the Cowboys safety.
The same safety who led the Cowboys in interceptions on one hand, but also might have led them in blown coverages on the other.
The guy Cowboys owner Jerry Jones guaranteed $11.1 million this summer by extending his expiring contract through the 2010 season, handing him $5.5 million then and promising the remaining $5.5 million in March.
By all rights, the guy who should have been one of this team's leaders, both on the field and in the locker room, but who prefers to fade into the woodwork in either environment and has little to decreasingly no interaction with what seems to be a loyal fan base through its media intermediaries.
Wow, don't hold back Mick, tell us how you really feel.
This guy should be all about tackles, yet he had but 86 this year, fourth on the team - and behind a cornerback for goodness sakes (Anthony Henry). He had only two tackles for losses, one forced fumble and one quarterback pressure. And don't tell me they didn't blitz him enough. They did, but when they did, he didn't get there.
Mickey does a fine job of ripping Roy. I'm sure some you will too!
Huckeba was a 2005 fifth-round draft pick of the Seahawks who worked out for the Cowboys this past fall. He missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury and was then released after training camp this past season. Huckeba, who played inside and outside linebacker, along with defensive end at Arkansas, probably would be used as an outside linebacker in the Cowboys' 3-4 scheme.
They all hate us, but they all watch us.
Cowboys games against the Bucs, Colts, Eagles on Christmas Day, Jaguars and Eagles on Sunday Night Football all ranked in the top 10.
The Cowboys also played in the most watched Monday Night Football game on ESPN, with their home game against the Giants drawing nearly 16.0 million viewers.
