Re: Romo out 4 Weeks

He couldn't hold onto the ball with all of his fingers in tact. So, how many fumbles will he have with a broken finger? 7? 8?

GO RAMS!

They pressured Campbell very well, better than anyone else this season so far. Hopefully they can get some good shots on Romo too.

Re: Romo out 4 Weeks

I was surprised he wasn't going to play, not taking anything away from a broken finger, just seemed 4 weeks was way to long to be out. If Campbell did that, the threads would probably light up.
But why would Favre call another team's qb in the middle of the season??? would he do that if he had been in the NFC?
weird.

What hasn't happened yet is that Jason Campbell hasn't thrown a ball into coverage that he shouldn't have thrown. And that's a huge advantage we have over other teams. Because teams that play us are throwing very interceptable balls, and if that trend continues we will dominate the turnover margin this season.
I have thought it has been kind of funny while Troy Aikman has been announcing our games he has talked about how well JC holds on to the ball in trafic and does not put it on the ground. Everytime I hear him say this I jus think back to all his fumbles last year. He is doing a better job of protecting the ball but I'm not ready to say he does a great job of not fumbling because of how many he had last year. Its like Aikman is just looking at what he has done over the past 6 weeks.

I was thinking about this the other day. All the wierd drills JZ ran last summer may have done some good. Specifically, look at the way JC handles himself under pressure in the pocket this year. Always looking downfield, maintaining focus on the play and not the whirlwind of activity around him. Maybe throwing blocking pads at him worked? It may have also helped him stay out of trouble thus far in general.

He's done a great job this year. Aikman has referenced the fact that in the past he didn't do a very good job at holding on to the ball.

Re: Romo out 4 Weeks

On ESPN's NFC East Blog, it says Jerry Jones was catching Romo's passes before practice, and that JJ thinks Romo could play on Sunday. I am glad Snyder has pretty much learned to let the coaches coach!

Re: Romo out 4 Weeks

I think Brett Favre could and has pulled off playing effectively with a broken finger....but Tony Homo is no Brett Favre. So I hope if he does play they break the rest of his fingers for being such a fool..

Kinda tough to cover him since he's out of the league.

I'm guessing you meant Brian Westbrook of the Eagles.

Re: Romo out 4 Weeks

if romo plays then he gets credit for stepping up and playing . . . i just think its alil too early for them to think their season is on the line but i dont see how the injury could get worse with playing. im no doctor but a broken pinky cant get anymore broke can it?

idk with this kind of injury, and i think this is what favre was tellin him, playing wont make it worse, its just a matter of whether you can grip the ball and throw it given the pain and wrap/splint on there. im guessin romo wont be able to throw as well and unfortunately the boys might be forced to run the ball more and become a more balanced offensive team because of it.

im not defending romo, i think he throws may too many up for grab balls after he scrambles around, but a pinky is probaly the one bone on your throwing hand you could break and still play. playing with a broken thumb i would see being much more difficult, and that just favre being favre there.

go skins!!!

The funny thing is, Wade Phillips, the supposed head coach, is actually more like 3rd in line. Jerry Jones #1, Jason Garrett #2....

Re: Romo out 4 Weeks

You just know if Dallas has another quick playoff exit or doesn't make it at all, Phillips will be the easy fall guy.

I really don't see Wade keeping his job another year no matter what. Jones is so in love with Garrett that I don't see him taking a chance and waiting another year. Also Garrett would be an idiot to pass on another head coaching job if he gets the chance to take it. You have to strike while the iron is hot. If the team can't win with the offensive weapons they claim they have then how good is Garrett really? I don't think he will be as highly regarded at the end of this season as he was last season so he can't afford to wait another year.
