I don't trust Romo, and I'll probably never trust Romo. But from the look of things, the Cowboys are headed in the right direction. The offensive line is probably the strongest it's been since 2007, the defensive line is the strongest its been for as long as I can really remember, and the team has legitimate playmakers to help.
At least that's the way things appear now, but it's a week to week league so I'm pretty even keel at the moment.
I've seen what Romo looks like behind a terrible OL with a crappy D, now we know what Eli looks like under similar circumstances. Wow...
It's a beautiful thing.
Wait....I think Eli just threw ANOTHER PICK!
If we can't talk smack sitting in first place while your G men have yet to win a game....
Should we just close down this portion of the forum?
Come on. It's all in good fun.
I must admit though, Eli ain't got the "escapability" like Romo does.

Now THIS is funny. If the season ended today, the Eagles would be the 6th playoff team in the NFC.
Now they have addressed their issues while we didn't. We let good players go because of our Salary Cap Problems and brought in cheaper second rate players and it shows. Look at some of the players we let go. Bradshaw 95 yards 1TD the other day. Osi with 2 sacks and lots of hurries and tackles, Canty doing good for Ravens, Bennett tearing it up for the Bears. the guys that replaced these guys and others are horrible. The breakdown of our O Line and Linebackers cant be fixed this year. The talent is not on the roster. Its time to take our lumps. IT happens. Its a cycle. If these Dallas guys want to come on a "Smack Talk Forum" and Talk Smack and we cant take it then whats it for. We have had our ups. We can talk Smack with the best of them when things were going well so now its time to take it.
Romo is doing A LOT better then Eli. Eli cant blame all the issues just on the O lIne. Even when he has had time going back to last season he has made bad choices and floated balls and over or under threw guys. Hes not on the same page with his WRs... So its not all O Line related right now. As far as NFCE.. ITs clear that Dallas is playing the best right now.. You cant stand here and say whoever makes the playoffs from the East is one and done. We all know better then any team that all you need to do is get in and if you get hot at the right time great things can happen.
Football has been very, very good to us.
Even though 2013 & 2014 was a losing season's, we can console ourselves with this fact-
