Good sign Hamlin’s sticking with Cowboys

The USA Today’s Pro Bowl notebook leads with an item on the cornerbacks chilling in Hawaii who are about to hit the open market. Ken Hamlin apparently doesn’t agree with Albert “Einstein” Breer’s take that the Cowboys shouldn’t sign one…


Can’t you folks give Eli credit?

Getty Images Look, it gives me no pleasure to proclaim that Eli Manning has matured into a franchise quarterback. It’s admitting that I was wrong about the guy, but you can’t deny what he did during these playoffs. Spare…


Believe it! Romo and Jessica romance still strong!

Reckon Jessica Simpson’s lawyer was right. Her romance with Tony Romo appears to be as strong as ever. Her alcohol tolerance, on the other hand, appears pretty weak. GossipGirls.com (hey, the link was e-mailed to me!) reports that Simpson got…


Cowboys Awards: MVP

Seventh in a seven-part series … QB TONY ROMO Revisionists may question this selection, with Romo’s late season fade. But those would forget just how high a level Romo played at from September through November, and the totality of his…


Cowboys Awards: Offensive Player of the Year

The sixth of a seven-part series: WR TERRELL OWENS How do you decide between an All-Pro receiver, an All-Pro tight end and a quarterback who had the best statistical season in franchise history? Put three names in a hat and…


They’ll always have Cabo

Tabloid reports, which may or may not be true, indicate that Tony Romo is sick and tired of Jessica Simpson. A pal of the blonde babe told OK! (love a publication that has an exclamation point in its name!!!) that…


Romo banned from chatting with Carrie?

There are tabloid reports, which may or may not be fictional, that Carrie Underwood is entering the Tony Romo romance picture again. A “source close to Jessica” whispers that Miss Simpson banned Romo from contacting his ex. I debated whether…


Simpson planned to destroy Cowboys’ season?

So says The Onion, which never lets the facts get in the way of a funny story. “Ever since I was a little girl growing up in football-obsessed Texas, it’s been a dream of mine to completely bring the evil,…


Dozen Pro Bowlers doesn’t seem right

How in the world can a team with a record number of Pro Bowlers not win a single playoff game? Well, there are a lot of different answers to that question. You can find many in Albert “Einstein” Breer’s Tale…


Crayton explains critical hesitation

Wade Phillips usually goes out of his way to defend his players. That wasn’t the case with Patrick Crayton yesterday. “If Patrick wouldn’t have slowed down, it would have been a touchdown,” Phillips said, referring to throw to Crayton in…


Is the media to blame?

I haven’t put on a helmet and shoulder pads since my senior year in high school, but I might be partially to blame for the Cowboys’ playoff loss if you follow Bradie James’ logic. From Calvin “Lucky” Watkins’ story: Inside…


Gutsy T.O. was almost gamebreaker

LOUIS DeLUCA / DMN T.O.’s tearful postgame press conference will be talked about for years. New Yorkers will fondly remember the Giants’ popcorn-themed taunts. His gutsy performance after three weeks of grueling rehab will be a mere footnote. With…


Cowboys can’t take advantage of scrub CBs

For the second straight year, the Cowboys failed to exploit an injury-depleted secondary in the playoffs. And you can’t blame Bill Parcells’ conservative game plan this time. The Seahawks had so many injuries that they were forced to pull Pete…


Crayton faces the music

MICHAEL AINSWORTH / DMN Patrick Crayton didn’t comment after the playoff loss other than to wish the Giants good luck, but he faced the media like a man today. Crayton said he didn’t regret providing the Giants with bulletin-board…


Old dudes rip Romo

Wade Phillips and Jerry Jones were fine with the Simpson Family Bye Week Fiesta, but a couple of their fellow geezers are killing Tony Romo for chillin’ in Cabo. Terry Bradshaw, who won four Super Bowls despite his alleged spelling…


Strahan digs Jessica

Talk about a blind-side hit … Giants defensive end Michael Strahan says he wouldn’t mind dating Jessica Simpson. Watch your back, Tony. Also, Osi Umenyiora is talking trash….


She’s baaaaaaack!!!!!

The wonderfully talented Ines Sainz of TV Azteca has returned to Valley Ranch today. Rumor has it that she’s trying to land an exclusive interview with Tony Romo. Sure hope that happens, since it could lead to a catfight with…


Simpson focused on work, too

Tony Romo is 100 percent focused on football this week, and it’s all work all the time for his better (?) half, too. The possibly credible Web site showbizspy.com reports that Simpson will not make a Sunday appearance at Texas…


Will Bobby Carpenter be ready to play?!

Bobby Carpenter pretty much got a free pass after taking part in the Simpson Family Bye Week Fiesta, while folks freaked out about Tony Romo and (to a much lesser degree) Jason Witten having some fun in the sun. Carpenter…


Big D for Distraction?

That’s what New York Daily News columnist Gary Myers thinks. He’s going crazy about the Simpson Family Bye Week Fiesta, although questions about Tony Romo’s Mexican getaway were pretty much met with a bunch of shrugs at Valley Ranch yesterday….


Big Apple TV show can’t resist Jessica joke

You know it’s game week when Jessica Simpson enters the conversation. But this time you can’t blame Tabloid Timmy. This comes out of the Big Apple, where Giants cornerback R.W. McQuarters was a guest this morning on Good Day New…


Romo, Witten made it back from Mexico

Tony Romo and Jason Witten are participating in the Cowboys’ walkthrough. They don’t appear to have any lingering effects from the Simpson Family Bye Week Fiesta. T.O. was the only player missing from practice. The hope is that he’ll be…


Giants have hotter quarterback

Jessica Simpson might not agree, but I’m focusing purely on football this week. Hope you folks don’t mind. There’s no doubt that Tony Romo is a better quarterback than Eli Manning. Romo would be the MVP if not for Tom…


Cowboys lucky Skins didn’t win

Washington Post columnist Michael Wilbon of Pardon The Interruption fame seems to think so, at least. Some of you folks have already read this column, judging by some comments on this here blog. It doesn’t sound like Wilbon approves of…


T.O. was supposed to go, too

You might be concerned that Tony Romo showed favoritism toward Jason Witten by taking him along for the Simpson Family Bye Week Fiesta. But don’t worry about T.O.’s feelings being hurt. Possibly imaginary sources inform me that T.O. was invited,…


Romo clearing mind in Mexico

Paparazzi snapped a few pictures of Tony Romo vacationing in Mexico this weekend with the Simpson family, and they’re all over the blogosphere now (deadspin, The Big Lead and other sites I can’t link to because of profanity, etc.). I’m…


Cowboys not concerned about scoring slump

The Cowboys, who were once on pace to break the then-NFL scoring record, averaged a pedestrian 15 points per game in December. Seems like that might be reason for concern, but it apparently isn’t. “I’m not concerned about anything except…


Who cares? Not the Cowboys

The Cowboys pinpointed their problem during today’s game. They really didn’t give a hoot what happened as long as they didn’t suffer any more injuries. Of course, the Redskins played with the passion expected of a team fighting for a…


Jerry’s paying for smart scouting

The three Cowboys who are the most recent additions to the multimillionaire club are an undrafted free agent and a couple seventh-round picks. QB Tony Romo, NT Jay Ratliff and WR Patrick Crayton had to fight for roster spots when…


Best WR season in team history?

Troy Aikman said Tony Romo is having the best season by a QB in Cowboys’ history, so that pretty much ends that debate. There’s no arguing that Jason Witten is having the best season by a TE in team history,…


Glenn’s going full speed

The Cowboys have had one of the league’s elite vertical passing games despite Terry Glenn’s absence. Expect that to improve with their best field-stretcher back in the mix. Tony Romo said Glenn is back to blazing when he runs in…


From the field

I just got back from a live TV spot on the field and this might be a record for Cowboys’ fans. And for those wondering about the Jessica Simpson cut-outs, I saw three. I saw three women wearing t-shirts over…


Romo not backfield’s only heartthrob

Romo isn’t the only Pro Bowler in the Cowboys’ backfield who is popular with the ladies. A female fan in the front row behind the Cowboys’ bench wore a white No. 24 jersey and held a sign that read, “MARRY…


Pre-game meals

We all know how much Vinny Testaverde meant to Tony Romo when they were teammates in 2004. On Friday night, Romo, along with Jason Witten, had dinner at the Capital Grille with Testaverde, re-living old times. Testaverde had a habit…


Any Panthers fans plan to show up?

Didn’t see one single celebrity cut-out mask in the parking lots outside Bank of America Stadium. Perhaps that’s because Panthers fans are few and far between. Serious estimate: Cowboys fans outnumber Carolina’s by at least a 4-to-1 ratio. Maybe the…


Jerry on Parcells

Looks like 790 The Ticket might as well be hubbed not in Miami, but the Metroplex, because the Cowboys talk keeps coming from them. Jerry Jones is a guest on The Michael Irvin Show, and he’s been effusive in his…


Cowboys ‘may have made mistake’ cutting Moore

Various other storylines have somehow created more buzz this week than the Cowboys facing the QB they cut, Canton-bound Panthers rookie Matt Moore. “We toyed back and forth with keeping three quarterbacks and may have made a mistake there,” Wade…


T.O. today, word for word

Per request, I transcribed T.O.’s entire chat with the media today. Follow the jump to read it. The questions are paraphrased. The answers are verbatim….


T.O. joked about Jessica, but …

T.O. talked to the media again today, breaking his Wednesday-only routine. He wanted to make it clear that he does not blame Jessica Simpson for the loss to the Eagles and hopes there are no hard feelings. “If I don’t…


No joke: T.O.’s frustrated

T.O. talked at length yesterday about his frustration after catching only five passes for 58 yards in the last two games. He’s determined to deal with it without being destructive. “I think everyone knows and this team knows that if…


NFL promos Romo/Simpson romance

The NFL, which can smell fresh cash with the best of ’em, sees the relationship between Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson as a marketing opportunity. Romo and his blonde babe are fodder for the latest NFL Network “Joe’s Diner” ad….


T.O.’s advice to Romo

For those folks tired of girly gossip, breathe easy. This post has nothing to do with Jessica Simpson. T.O. said this morning that he’d advise Tony Romo to sit out Saturday if his bruised right thumb needs the rest. “Be…


Was T.O. joking about Jessica?

T.O.’s publicist wants the world to know that he was just joking about Jessica Simpson this morning. You can judge for yourself by listening to the conversation. And you can vote here. T.O. had just finished saying he was looking…


T.O. gives Jessica Simpson a thumbs down

The Cowboys are off Friday, but don’t expect to find T.O. checking out Blonde Ambition during its opening day in Texas theaters. He’s not joking when he says that Jessica Simpson is screwing up Tony Romo’s focus. “Right now, Jessica…


Carrie Underwood vs. Jessica Simpson

SI.com’s Extra Mustard does a very in-depth breakdown of Tony Romo’s blonde beauties. Based purely on superficial qualities that you can see in a photograph, I believe Romo has upgraded since last season. I sure am feeling patriotic after checking…


More Pro Bowlers than points?!

I just came to the startling realization that the Cowboys have more offensive Pro Bowlers (7) than points scored in last week’s loss (6). Tony Romo, T.O., Jason Witten, Marion “The Barbarian” Barber, Flozell Adams, Andre Gurode and Bigg Davis…


Romo injury update from Wade

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said that the team is closely monitoring the precious right thumb of Tony Romo, but that its status is such that he expects the QB to be ready to go on Saturday in Charlotte. “He said…


Romo update

Quarterback Tony Romo was at practice, but he kept his hands – and right thumb – in his pockets as offensive coordinator Jason Garrett took his throws in the pre-practice throwing session. Before we left, Romo did not attempt a…


Romo banged thumb on Bigg’s helmet

I’m assisting Albert “Einstein” Breer with his Tale of the Tape duties, and we just pinpointed the play on which Tony Romo injured his thumb. He banged it on RG Leonard “Bigg” Davis’ helmet on a 13-yard completion with 10:20…


Panthers want more Moore

Carolina is just giddy about rookie QB Matt Moore’s first start. Charlotte Observer columnist Scott Fowler goes so far as to suggest that the Cowboys castoff could be the Panthers’ version of Tony Romo (minus Jessica Simpson, one would hope)….


Romo’s thumb

WFAA-TV Here’s an image of Tony Romo’s wrapped-up thumb after Sunday’s game (just in case anybody thought he was faking it)….


Simpson marketing scheme works like charm

Gotta give Jessica Simpson (and papa Joe) credit. They figured out a foolproof way to get tons of free pub at a time when her career could really use a boost. I suspect it works both ways, though. All…


Motion Pictures: Philadelphia Eagles 10, Dallas Cowboys 6

Well, our photo staff couldn’t come up with anything positive for this week’s edition of Motion Pictures. They chose Tony Romo being under constant pressure from the Eagles’ pass rush. Here’s the season archive of Motion Pictures, where you’re sure…


How much Jessica Simpson is enough for Tony Romo?

We interrupt this serious football talk with more Romo-Simpson gossip. Our friends on Guide Live’s Over The Top Blog are asking all sorts of questions, including, “Is Jessica to blame for Tony Romo’s bad game yesterday?” Miss Simpson was shown…


Thumb wasn’t Romo’s problem

Cross your fingers that Tony Romo’s right thumb, which was heavily wrapped after the game, doesn’t bother him the rest of the season. But don’t blame his poor performance in the loss to the Eagles on an injury. Romo said…


Keyshawn probably enjoyed watching this

Wonder whether ESPN’s Keyshawn Johnson will take a shot at T.O. tomorrow night? For the second consecutive week, the Cowboys couldn’t figure out a way to get the ball to their best weapon. T.O. finished with two catches for 37…


Simpson’s two-minute man didn’t get chance

It’s a real shame that Donovan McNabb completed that third-down pass to TE Brent Celek a couple plays before the two-minute warning. I really wanted to see whether Tony Romo could pull some two-minute magic again. Yes, Romo was really,…


Does Romo have mind on wrong ring?

Chicago Sun-Times gossip columnist Bill Zwecker speculates that Tony Romo might be getting hitched to Jessica Simpson fairly soon. This Jessica Simpson-Tony Romo romance sure is moving fast. My good Dallas sources whisper the twosome is so coosome, Romo already…


Romo’s romancing makes for funny fodder

JOHN F. RHODES / DMN Imagine if you put Jessica Simpson’s head on Jason Witten’s body in this picture. A creative member of the Cowboys’ support staff came up with that idea and did a little cut and paste…


Witten outwitted the Lions

Jason Witten oozed humility after the best game by a tight end in Cowboys’ history. Gee whiz, he racked up a franchise-record 15 catches and career-high 138 yards by taking advantage of a defense focused on stopping T.O. “Things opened…


Don’t Stop Believing

JOHN F. RHODES / DMN That Journey tune is kind of Tony Romo’s unofficial theme song, and it certainly fit today’s game. Romo managed to pull out a victory in a game the Cowboys really had no business winning….


Romo learned from loss to Lions

It’s tough to pin a 39-31 loss on a quarterback, especially one who threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns. But Tony Romo made some costly mistakes against the Lions last season. Romo threw an interception that set up a…


Are Rice’s records within T.O.’s reach?

DMN FILE Happy birthday to the Original 81!! T.O. turns 34 today. Albert “Einstein” Breer put into statistical perspective just how remarkable a season T.O. is having for a receiver his age. Simply put, he’s the best 34-year-old receiver…


Aikman raves about Romo

Tony Romo has already shattered the franchise record for touchdowns in a season, and he’s on pace to obliterate the yardage record, too. Those records were set by Danny White in 1983, but Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach set the…


Romo’s policy: No bulletin-board material

Don’t ever expect to read or hear any Jon Kitna-like quotes coming from Tony Romo’s mouth. “I’ve never been a guy to get on people, because I know I’m going to play them again,” Romo said. “I wouldn’t want to…


Romo ain’t interested in her brains

A helpful reader e-mailed this list, which ranks the dumbest people in Hollywood. Jessica Simpson, Tony Romo’s most recent squeeze, is No. 7. I’m no Hollywood expert, but I believe Britney Spears is waaaaaaaaaay underrated at No. 14. You might…


Romo spends off weekend smooching Simpson

AP It’s been almost a week since we last updated Tony Romo’s romancing on this here blog, and I’ve been flooded with requests for more of this type of reporting. Fortunately, People Magazine is willing to do the work…


T.O.’s partying for charity

T.O. turns 34 Friday, but the shindig’s tonight. T.O. celebrated his birthday with a Hollywood bash last year, but he’s keeping it local this year, and he’s doing it for a good cause. The Terrell Owens Catch A Dream Foundation’s…
