Cowboys Headlines - Colin Cowherd: People Forget "Tony Romo Was Good For A Decade"

I've always found myself agreeing a lot with Colin Cowherd, the now Fox Sports radio host who's made headlines for some wrong reasons when it's come to the 2016 Cowboys.

Returning to form as the logical and sensible personality that once had me watching Sportsnation every single day after school, Cowherd summed up the career of Tony Romo perfectly in this monologue.

Check out this video on Streamable using your phone, tablet or desktop.

Cowherd has taken heat for spewing the hottest (and wrongest) takes possible when it comes to Dak Prescott, and now it seems that he has not only come around on the miraculous rookie, but has admitted his hesitance was due to the respect he has for Romo.

"I'm not anti Dak, I'm pro Tony." - Cowherd

As one of the loudest Romo supporters out there, I referenced Cowherd in this column that showed my support for Prescott's progress as Dallas' starter - this time asking if the national media would ever give him the respect that Romo always deserved.

Tony Romo is now getting that respect, and even if its just 117 seconds here from Cowherd, it sums up perfectly what Cowboys Nation has been thinking for a decade.

    I love it, it’s exactly how I feel

    • http://wmscradio.com/show/upon-further-review/ Sean Martin

      Should resonate with plenty of Cowboys faithful. Thank you for reading and replying, Randy.

  • Lew

    He is right on, He has carried this team for a very long time.

    Really wish we could have seen what Tony could have done with the roster we have now. It’s sad and a shame what my beloved Cowboys have done to the man that gave them his heart and soul. Dream scenario would have been Romo getting back his job leading Cowboys to a Super Bowl victory and then walking away a champion.

    • http://wmscradio.com/show/upon-further-review/ Sean Martin

      Spot on, Charles. That was certainly the dream scenario after a few wins from Dak, but it seems a bit less likely now. Honestly, as long as Romo gets a ring somehow, I’ll be so happy.

  • Mike

    I’m pro Romo. I think this o-line is making Dak look good. I’m sure even Sanchez would look the same if he played with this offensive line.

    • http://wmscradio.com/show/upon-further-review/ Sean Martin

      We said this about Weeden and Cassel haha. Biggest difference for Dak is that he has Zeke.

  • http://gravatar.com/hectare22 hectare22

    Tony Romo has played with some good offensive lines and not gotten it done in the past. Romo has been a very good quarterback for the Cowboys throughout his playing career, when you look at the past three years he has been hurt and not able to play. It appears at this point in his career he will be injury prone with the slightest hit, its Dak’s time and Romo will have to get used to being the backup and waiting for his number to called if Dak falters down the stretch. Colin Cowherd is an overrated loudmouth who is wrong almost all the time about anything that matters with sports.

    • http://wmscradio.com/show/upon-further-review/ Sean Martin

      …but are you agreeing with Colin here? You did admit that Romo was “a very good quarterback”. Thank you for the comment.

  • http://gilmorelogic.wordpress.com gilmorelogic

    Tony Romo did not concede the job to Dax. He was told her had lost his job. Cowboys fans have been frustrated by Tony for a while. We love him but time moves on.

  • Mike Young

    Tony was good for a lot of years. I enjoyed some of his best seasons. But I also remember what seems like a propensity to lose games with bad play at critical times. I believe the 2014 team is very comparable to this season in terms of personnel. The 2014 team did not have Elliott who is a dynamic talent but they did have Murray a tremendous talent in his own right who lead the NFL in rushing. Romo just never lead his team to a championship and unfortunately that may be his legacy. The 2015 season as we all know was a disaster because Romo could not stay healthy. Romo was good and gave it his all but Prescott is good too and he may be able to accomplish as a rookie what Romo never could – take his team to and win the Super Bowl. That would be amazing!!

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory Reinstated, Will Join Team for Training Camp

Will the Dallas Cowboys "Get Lucky" at Defensive End?

The Dallas Cowboys patience with Defensive End Randy Gregory has paid off. Suspended for the better part of 2016 and all of 2017, Gregory has officially been reinstated to join the team for their 2018 training camp. The projected starter at RDE, Gregory will report to Oxnard with the rest of the team on July 25th.

From here, it will be all hard work for Gregory to reconnect with Defensive Coordinator Rod Marinelli and get his promising career back on track. The last time Gregory suited up for the Cowboys, he managed to sack Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz in a week 17 win. The Cowboys will be expecting much more of this from a player they've supported through multiple violations of the league's heavily criticized substance abuse policy.

Ian Rapoport on Twitter

Cowboys pass-rusher Randy Gregory's petition for reinstatement was not opposed, according to lawyer Daniel Moskowitz. He's back. "I've never been more proud of any individual in my life. I'm very excited for Randy and his daughter and the rest of the his family.

Among this support staff for Gregory were a number of teammates that wrote formal letters to the NFL as part of his bid for reinstatement. These last few days of preparation before the Cowboys are together again as a team will surely be uplifted by Gregory's presence.

They say no news is typically good news at this point in the offseason, something the Cowboys have come to realize far too often. Today's news shouldn't be confused with a pleasant surprise however, rather something the Cowboys were committed to in getting another premier pass rusher on the field.

Here is the NFL's official press release on their reinstatement of Randy Gregory:

Cowboys & DeMarcus Lawrence Fail to Reach New Contract

Which 2018 Free Agents Will The Cowboys Retain? 1
Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportwire

DeMarcus Lawrence will definitely be a Cowboy in 2018, but now the future  beyond that remains in question. The Dallas Cowboys and their star defensive end did not agree to a long-term contract by today's deadline for franchise-tagged players.

According to NFL rules, teams had until 4:00 pm EST today to reach contract extensions with free agents who'd been assigned the franchise tag earlier this offseason. Players who did not get new deals will have to play the 2018 season on their one-year franchise tenders.

Jon Machota on Twitter

DeMarcus Lawrence and the Cowboys were unable to work out a long-term contract by today's deadline. Lawrence will play the 2018 season under a one-year franchise tag that will pay him $17.1 million

This does not mean Lawrence will be a free agent in 2019. The two parties can still discuss the contract in the months to come, but the deal cannot be made until after the end of the regular season.

Dallas also has the option of giving DeMarcus a second franchise tag next year. However, that would come at a considerably higher price for a second-straight season.

This year, Lawrence will still make plenty with one of the highest cap hits of any DE in the league. He earned the franchise tag last with 14.5 sacks in a breakout season.

Today's news may not really be a big deal in the long run. As long as Tank wants to stay in Dallas after this, the two sides now have over five months to keep talking and will hopefully agree on a new deal for 2019 and beyond.

There is risk on both sides, of course.

Lawrence's leverage could be less if his productions drops or he gets injured. On the other hand, his position could be even stronger with a second-straight year of strong play.

Now everyone, from the team to player to fans, is in wait-and-see mode until the end of the season.

Will Cowboys WR Noah Brown Do Enough to Make the Roster?

Will Cowboys WR Noah Brown Do Enough to Make Cowboys Roster? 2
(Tom Fox/The Dallas Morning News)

The Dallas Cowboys aren't short on numbers at wide receiver on their current 90-man roster. Looking to replace Dez Bryant and reshape their offense, the Cowboys will have to find the right group of pass catchers for Dak Prescott at their upcoming training camp.

This group includes Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns, Lance Lenoir, Deonte Thompson, Cedrick Wilson, Michael Gallup, KD Cannon, Mekale McCay, and Marchie Murdock.

The odd men out from this group will likely be the ones that can't sustain a consistent level of play, doing so across multiple units if needed. All ten receivers will have their flashes, but with only four being true locks to make the team, new Cowboys Wide Receivers Coach Sanjay Lal will be in on some tough decisions right away.

One such decision may be moving on from last year's seventh round pick Noah Brown out of Ohio State. Vouched for by former Buckeyes teammate Ezekiel Elliott thanks to his blocking ability on the outside, it may now be this strength in the run game and deficiency as a pass catcher that spells the end of Brown's run in Dallas.

Normally, a seventh round pick being on the roster bubble wouldn't be this noteworthy, but Brown clearly showed the potential to outplay this draft status as a rookie. Appearing in 13 games, Brown is a true X receiver, although not the dominant one the Cowboys are searching for.

What Happens if WR Allen Hurns Doesn't Pan Out?

Moving away from fielding a true number one receiver, the Cowboys did sign Allen Hurns to play this spot while prepared to spread the ball around to Williams, Beasley, and Gallup after that.

This leaves Thompson, Wilson, Cannon, Lenoir, McCay, Murdock, and Brown to prove their worth in other ways to make the roster. I've written plenty about the potential rookie Cedrick Wilson has, so I'll be expecting a strong showing from him to earn a role in the Cowboys offense.

Wilson's skill set could push a depth signing like Deonte Thompson off the team, although his ability to back up Cole Beasley/Tavon Austin on special teams is important. The same can be said about Lance Lenoir, who like Brown has the advantage over first year players given his trials through training camp and the preseason a year ago.

Long shots to make the team, Cannon, McCay, and Murdock fall just below this group -- and somewhere in the middle is Noah Brown.

Increasing his role on special teams as the season went on last year, Brown had fans throughout a coaching staff that is now drastically changed for 2018. From their shift to more speed on offense, to drafting of both Gallup and Wilson, calling Brown a fringe player on the Cowboys roster really sets up the fiery competition to come at wide receiver.

Should the Cowboys find a spot for Brown, one can only hope it means this new coaching staff has a clear plan for him to contribute on both offense and special teams outside of being a run blocker. A potential niche for Brown is his red zone ability, not afraid to put his body on the line for jump balls and fight through contact in his routes.

It won't be long until we sort out if this is enough to make the Cowboys as a wide receiver ahead of Quarterback Dak Prescott's third season.
