Tony Romo appears to be back, fully healthy and ready to hit the off-season program, whenever the CBA allows for it to begin. Bill Nichols reports that Romo is back on the golf course, so that clavicle must be feeling better.

Romo will partner with his buddy, long hitting John Daly, at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on Feb. 10-13. They missed the cut last year after shooting 65-70-68.

``After Qatar I'll head back and team up my Cowboys partner Tony Romo at Pebble Beach once again this year,'' Daly said via Twitter.

Romo had previously indicated that he was frustrated with being put on IR because he felt he could have played in the season finale against Philadelphia. This would serve as proof that the rehab is finally concluded and we are set to get a complete number 9 back.

AOL Fanhouse breaks down how the NFC East performed on special teams for the 2010 season. As would be expected, punter Mat McBriar received a mention for being the conference's best punter, again.

COWBOYS: McBriar rolled on to a second Pro Bowl outkicking Oakland's Shane Lechler, the NFL's measuring stick, by nine tenths of a yard in both gross (47.9) and net (41.7) average. The 31-year-old Australian's excellence spurred the Cowboys' NFC-best punt coverage teams. Rookie free agent Danny McCray was a demon in coverage, clearly ahead of holdover Sam Hurd, newcomer Jesse Holley and fellow rookies Barry Church and Sean Lee for special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis. Hurd and Holley are both unsigned for 2011.

As you watch the playoffs and study the teams, how far away are the Cowboys in comparison to those teams and from making their own run in the playoffs?

Yea, I don’t think they’re that far off... I don’t think there is a coach in football that wouldn’t mind taking over this team and as they are with the existing players and going out and seeing what he can do with them. Now, they need to address the offensive line: those guys are getting a little bit older and bring in one or two more quality guys there. They got to address they safety position and some other things but that’s not unlike any of these teams. Whoever goes on to win the Super Bowl, there’s going to be areas that have to be addressed.
