Interesting. Many of us here that support the Boys have said he needs to step up. Sounds like he is trying to be alot more of a leader on the field. He needs to keep this up in wins and losses. What was also interesting was the speed. The one sack happened in about 1 second. Some good sound bytes to McGee at the end that were funny and after the Austin TD.."Hey, hey, hell of a job, except who got me killed"

Funny Frog..."Hell of a job except who got me killed?".....that cracked me up.

the comments about getting shot at in Wisconsin were funny too.

It was good to see him get on the line a little too. I am thinking he didn't do any of that the last couple of years. His comments to the coaches at warmups were pretty good too..."sorry to interupt a meeting of the minds over here." Again, the ground level speed of the game is unreal. Alot of the completions were right when guys were about to hit. I'd like to see one of these in a loss. He needs to keep up the new role.

Yep that guy was right on him immediately.

There is no meeting of the minds if Wade is standing there is it?

Since we are having our own Romo talk here....here is a really nice article on him. The bottom line is he needs to man up in December and get them to a championship but his numbers are pretty good and people rag on him alot without realizing it. He just needs to keep it up in December and beyond.

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo wasted no time silencing the doubters -- the Cold, Hard Football Facts high among them -- in his first game without the prolific Terrell Owens as a batterymate.....

You might not have noticed (that's what we're here for), but Romo's performance on Sunday propelled him past no less a statistical juggernaut than Peyton Manning and into the No. 2 spot on the all-time passer rating leaderboard. Both players entered Week 1 of the 2009 season with career passer ratings of 94.7. Manning remains at 94.7 today. But with Romo's explosive effort against the Bucs, his career mark improved by a full point to 95.7.

Only Steve Young (96.8) boasts a better career passer rating. But that record is clearly in jeopardy.

Yards per attempt

Romo finds himself in very exclusive company in this telling indicator, as well.

Cleveland's Otto Graham is No. 1 on the YPA list (8.63). Not so coincidentally, he was the most successful quarterback in history, leading his Browns to six straight championship games in his six seasons as an NFL quarterback (1950-55), winning three of them. (Graham also led the Browns to four straight championships in the AAFC before the club joined the NFL -- he averaged a stunning 9.51 yards per attempt against that league's inferior competition.)

Chicago's Sid Luckman is No. 2 on the YPA list (8.42). Not so coincidentally, he was the most successful quarterback of the 1940s, virtually inventing the modern position that we know today while leading the Bears to four NFL titles.

Then there's Romo at No. 3. Following Sunday's performance, he has averaged 8.18 yards per pass attempt in his career. To put this figure another way, it makes Romo more effective at getting the ball down field than any passer since Graham hung up the black high-tops 54 years ago.

Victories

For better or for worse, quarterbacks are ultimately measured by the bottom line: wins and losses. In this area, too, Romo is in elite company. He's 28-12 (.700) as a starting quarterback. Among contemporary players, only Tom Brady (88-24; .786) and Ben Roethlisberger (52-20; .722) have won more consistently. (It should be noted that San Francisco's Shaun Hill might someday enter the discussion: he's 8-3 in his 11 starts, a mark of .727

I have no sympathy for him at all.

Right. Man that guy broke my heart. He got to like 3 straight NFC Championships and couldn't get to the Bowl. What many forget is that after "The Catch" they got the ball with 50 seconds left. He threw a perfect strike to Drew Pearson to the 50 and just into 49er territory and Pearson fumbled. He could play..especially for a guy who followed Staubach.
