Romo Tells It Like It Is

Cowboys Blog - Romo Tells It Like It Is 2

For the past five or six seasons people have wanted to replace Tony Romo. It just always seemed the easiest thing to do; blame the QB for the team's troubles. Well, for a brief moment, those same people thought his replacement could be in the 2014 draft.

As the rumors soared at an all-time high during draft week, the so-called “experts” said Jerry Jones wouldn't be able to help himself and would draft Johnny Manziel. Some fans and media were just as giddy as a 12-year-old school girl.

Well, things didn't work out like that.

The Cowboys pick finally came up and Johnny Football was passed on and eventually taken by the Cleveland Browns. Oh how the Romo haters and media moaned when Commissioner Goodell said the name Zack Martin.

Romo supporters wondered and Romo Haters hoped, but there was one man who wasn't worried for one second who was coming to Valley Ranch...

That one man was Tony Romo.

In an interview with Stephen Jones on Sirius XM radio, Jones said the team met with Romo just to let him know that he was still their guy. And Romo's response was just what you would want from your starting quarterback. Romo said, 'Well if you decide to, it ain't going to matter, there's not anybody out there that can beat me out."

I want my QB saying these types of things. I want the attitude and gunslinger mentality, and I want my QB telling the world to Bring. It. On.

And for all the people that hate Tony Romo (And yes, I know people who actually hate the man) you’re going to have to accept that Mr. Romo isn't going anywhere any time soon.

And those same people are gonna have to accept that there isn't anybody out there that can come in and do a better job; it just isn't going to happen.

Some people say getting another QB is going to mean the answer for all of the Dallas Cowboys problems. Well I am here to tell you, there aren't any guarantees.

So take heed what ye hear Cowboy fans; There will come a day when you will miss Tony Romo. You will miss what he brings to the Dallas Cowboys. Some of you might be asking exactly what does Romo bring to this team? And the answer is…… Tony Romo gives this team a chance to win EVERY single Sunday.

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

According to multiple sources, the Dallas Cowboys have signed former Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Randall Cobb to a one-year deal to help bolster their depth at the WR position and potentially become Cole Beasley's replacement.

Cowboys are giving former Packers' WR Randall Cobb a one-year, $5 million deal, per source. https://t.co/8KWFPjSP8T

The Dallas Cowboys met with Randall Cobb earlier this week, but he eventually left Dallas without a contract. He must've had a change of heart or just needed time to ponder the Cowboys offer, but regardless of what transpired in that short time he is now part of America's Team.

During his time with the Packers, Cobb accumulated 470 receptions for 5,524 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns. The eight-year veteran will now be expected to replace some of Cole Beasley's production out of the slot for the Dallas Cowboys.

After years of watching Beasley as the Cowboys slot WR, it will be really interesting to see Randall Cobb in that role. He's not as quick twitched as No. 11, but can be just as dangerous due to his ability to be more of a down the field receiver. He also brings added value in the return game and could compete with Tavon Austin to become the return specialist.

This could mean the Cowboys forgo drafting a wide receiver early in the 2019 NFL Draft, but I wouldn't put it past them. Regardless of what happens, this is an excellent addition.

REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur is returning for his 15th season as the Cowboys' long snapper. The veteran free agent was re-signed by Dalals today to a one-year deal.

Thanks to Jason Witten's one-year sabbatical with Monday Night Football, Ladouceur has now been with the Cowboys for more consecutive seasons than any current player. He just turned 38 last week, but Louis-Philippe remains one of the top long snappers in football.

Todd Archer on Twitter

The Cowboys have signed long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a one-year deal worth $1.03 million and $90,000 in bonus money, but he will count $735,000 against the cap. This will be Ladouceur's 15th season with the Cowboys, tying Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Mark... https://t.co/2iDsi6RX7e

Retaining Ladouceur is an underrated move for the Cowboys given their situation at kicker.

Brett Maher was only 80% accurate overall on field goals last year. The team could be considering an upgrade in free agency.

Whether they bring Maher back or try someone new, having a long snapper with Ladouceur's performance perfection will make things much easier for them.

REPORT: Police Detain Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford After Bar Fight

Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford Kicked Off Thursday Flight

According to TMZ, Tyrone Crawford was involved in a brawl at a bar in Panama City, FL last Friday night. The Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman and team captain was detained by police but apparently was not arrested.

The level of Crawford's involvement has not been substantiated, but TMZ's report does have him shoving police officers at some point in the action. The incident was reportedly captured by surveillance equipment at the bar.

Given that he was not arrested, one could assume that Tyrone was not one of the primary players in the melee. But that doesn't mean the NFL won't still review this matter as it relates to the personal conduct policy, and Cowboys fans know too well how "fair" that process can be.

This is certainly not a story you'd expect to see attached to Tyrone Crawford, who has been a model citizen and leader since entering the league in 2012.

Dallas elected to keep Crawford this season despite solid potential savings. He will count $10.1 million against their 2019 salary cap, which is high for his average production. However, he can play multiple positions and is one of their most experienced players.

Even if Tyrone were to get suspended by the league, it likely wouldn't be more than a one or two-game ban given his record and reputation. It shouldn't change anything about his status with the team.
