In an ironic turn of events, Tony Romo has won the NFL’s Player of the Month award in December. It’s hard to imagine this is the same quarterback who the media deemed “unable to win a big game in December.” So much for unable to win a big game, the Cowboys have won 3 straight defeating the previously undefeated Saints and shutting out NFC East Division rivals Washington and Philadelphia.
In the month of December in 2009, Romo has had 4 games with over 100.0 passer rating while throwing only 2 interceptions compared to his 9 touchdowns. His record is 3-2 and now has a chance to fend of those playoff critics.
Giants Continue Clearing House
The Giants continued their winter cleaning by firing D-Line Coach Micke Waufle. This is the second firing of the week for the Giants who are looking to fix the problems that have risen from no where. The Giants only had 32 sacks this season and where horrific on run defense compared to last year.
It’s important to remember that the Giants were also plagued by injuries all season which really limited the rotation of the defensive line. This decision might have been a bit fast given all the negatives that happened this season, but we’ll keep an eye on whose hired.
Cleveland Browns have one good thing going for them for sure. That is Kick Returner/Wide Receiver/Quarterback Joshua Cribbs. Cribbs has been electric and has won plenty of games for the Browns himself. All he wants is to be paid like a top 5 return man, which is a bargain given that he’s the best. So what do the Browns do to honor their electric offensive playmaker? Offer him 1.4 mil a year over 3 years.
Cribbs’ agent was quoted as saying “Not only is it insulting, but it’s illogical. There is no way to objectively justify it.”
He’s spot on, Cribbs is a game changer who has returned three kickoffs and one punt for touchdowns this season.
