I had to post this one for BTB-regular Terry, who never met a Tony Romo compliment he didn’t like. But if you’re going to rip on Tony Romo, beware, Terry doesn’t take that lightly! Pete Pricso listed the most overrated and underrated players on each team.
QB Tony Romo. It's way too early to put him as a top 10 quarterback, which some have done. He sure didn't look like it at the end of last season.
CB Terence Newman. His not going to the Pro Bowl last year was a crime. He is a top-notch cover corner.
Rick Gosselin puts out some early Power Rankings and the Patriots lead the way, but our beloved Cowboys only come in at the middle of the pack.
A new coach brings a new attitude on defense. Wade Phillips is going to turn his young speed loose, so you'll see a more aggressive scheme in 2007 than under Bill Parcells in 2006. But any success by the Cowboys will depend on which quarterback shows up – the Tony Romo who flourished in November or the Romo who floundered in December.
Final 2006 rank: 13
