Tony Romo

When it comes to offseason rumors in the NFL, the smallest and most minute detail can be an indication of something large and league-altering.

A year ago when many members of Cowboys Nation were looking to land then Free Agent Lamar Miller, I became quite knowledgeable on Lamar’s Twitter feed. A like here, a subtweet there, and sometimes you can piece together the ultimate puzzle.

On Tuesday rumors began to swirl that Cardinals QB Carson Palmer had put his house up for sale and withdrawn his children from local schools, those reports have been put out a bit but they sent Cowboys Nation into a bit of a tizzy.

Since the day that the Dak-or-Romo conversation began, people have tried to speculate as to where exactly Tony Romo will be playing football in 2017. Many have said the Denver Broncos, the Houston Texans have been a popular opinion, and if Palmer were out of the conversation then Arizona would seemingly be a legitimate destination.

It is Super Bowl week so the temperatures are a bit hotter around the NFL than they will be five days from Wednesday, but while the Palmer drama in Arizona continues to loom… Tony Romo will be a legitimate option for both Cardinals and Cowboys fans.

Jerry Jones talked recently about how difficult it is to find a Romo solution that works for all parties involved. If Carson Palmer says bon voyage to Arizona, some of Jerry’s work might be done for him. We’ll have to stay tuned.

    The Cardinals would be perfect. They have the defense and their young RB is a beast similar to Zeke. Romo would be able to show us what he could have done with Zeke. Sad that whoever gets him will have a far superior QB to ours.smh.

      I agree on ARI but “far superior to ours?” I’m a Romo fan all day, but I think that’s a stretch. I want Romo here and know it can’t happen with Dak here (hate that). But I believe that what Prescott lacks in experience, Tony makes up for in age.

      Anyway, would have preferred Romo not get hurt in 2016 so Dak could ride the bench learning. Was a can of worms having to play him. Stupid worms.

        Brady is almost 40. Injuries are par for the course in the NFL — how’s your luck. A good balanced team with TR will win the SB next year. TR will haunt the Boys.

  • Travis Diggs

    Romo not going to no damn Arizona!!! Let’s be real Fellas Romo wanna go to Denver Arizona is a possibility but they gotta release him for him to end up in the NFC. If Romo is released he will go to a team that we will play next year Whether it’s the Broncos or the Cardinals We play both next year So get ready to face Romo next year regardless. Romo will want to stick it to the boys Without no pass rush He will light us up with vengeance

    2004:
    Romo was in camp behind starter Quincy Carter, Jerry favorite Drew Henson, and then Parcells signed Vinny Testaverde. Undrafted, long-shot project Romo, was slated to not survive cut downs.

    Suddenly Carter failed a drug screen and Parcells cut him. Romo was saved. He went on to make around $120 million in the NFL, instead of going back to Wisconsin to join the real world.

    Luckiest man in NFL history… ;^)

    • Russ_Te

      Romo really should send a couple million to Carter, at least… ;^)

      • Michael Moy

        Why? QC got cut because he didn’t have it. Bad scouting by Boys.

        • Russ_Te

          Carter was the incumbent starter that preseason. He was cut for failing a drug test, which allowed Parcells to elevate his guy Testaverde with no QB controversy.

    • Michael Moy

      No, bad scouting. Parcells with good foresight.

Sanjay Lal Hired As Cowboys WR Coach

After hiring Paul Alexander to fill their vacant OL coaching position, the Dallas Cowboys are continuing to retool their offensive staff below Scott Linehan. Sanjay Lal has been hired to coach the Cowboys’ wide receivers, replacing Derek Dooley.

Lal has experience as a WR coach with four different teams, dating back to 2009 with the Oakland Raiders. He was promoted up to this position after serving as the Raiders’ quality control coach from 2007-08.

David Moore on Twitter

Sources: Cowboys have reached an agreement with Sanjay Lal to become the team’s WR coach. Lal was with Indianapolis last season and replaces Derek Dooley on the staff.

Most recently, Sanjay Lal coached the receivers for the Indianapolis Colts in 2017. He has also been with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.

In this interview with the Colts, Lal mentions being very detail-oriented with a focus on the technical aspects of playing receiver.

Lal beats out former Cowboys WR Miles Austin for this position, earning the right to lead a room of receivers in desperate need of fresh talent. In an offseason that’s been about finding fresh ideas with the coaching staff so far though, the Cowboys have a new voice on offense.

Cowboys Losing Linebackers Coach Matt Eberflus to Colts

Matt Eberflus, Sean Lee

Multiple sources are reporting Matt Eberflus — who has been the linebackers coach and passing game coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys — will leave to join the Indianapolis Colts as the new defensive coordinator. Eberflus has been with Dallas since 2011, having joined Rob Ryan’s staff when Ryan become the coordinator for the Cowboys’ defense.

He has been the linebackers coach during his entire Dallas tenure and was also named passing game coordinator in 2016.

Tom Pelissero on Twitter

With Josh McDaniels ticketed for the #Colts, former #Cowboys assistant Matt Eberflus is expected to come along as defensive coordinator, I’m told. Lot of parts falling in place now.

If not the Colts, some thought Matt Eberflus might end up replacing Matt Patricia as the defensive coordinator in New England. Either way, it does not appear Dallas could have kept him around while Rod Marinelli remains in his current position.

Eberflus’ work in Dallas speaks for itself, and primarily through LB Sean Lee.

He has been Lee’s position coach for all but his rookie season, and in that time Lee has been one of the top defensive players in all of football.

Beyond Lee, Eberflus has also been able to get quality play out of mid-round picks like Anthony Hitchens and Damien Wilson. We also saw Jaylon Smith make significant progress this season.

Given Matt Eberflus has never worked with Josh McDaniels before, the fact he was on the Colts’ radar says a lot.

Make no mistake; the Cowboys lost a good one here.

Don’t panic, however. Coach Marinelli has cast a very wide net during his time in the NFL and there are a lot of potential guys, some with plenty of experience, that Dallas might look to.

It’s entirely possible that Eberflus’ replacement will be someone who Marinelli spends 2018 grooming to take over as the defensive coordinator.

Still, of all the coaching changes so far for Dallas, this one hurts most.

Cowboys Hire Longtime Bengals OL Coach Paul Alexander

Cowboys Hire Longtime Bengals OL Coach Paul Alexander

Thus far the 2018 offseason has brought a plethora of change to the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff, especially on the offensive side of the ball. Now it is being reported the Cowboys have hired a brand new offensive line coach, former Cincinnati Bengals’ Offensive Line Coach Paul Alexander.

Alex Marvez on Twitter

Source tells @sportingnews that Paul Alexander hired as new @dallascowboys offensive line coach

Alexander coached with the Bengals for over 20 years, and replaces the same man in Dallas who replaces him in Cincinnati, Frank Pollack. Alexander has also been the Bengals assistant head coach since 2003.

The Cowboys recently lost an assistant head coach when Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia left for Jon Gruden’s Oakland Raiders.

Per usual, the hire has been met with mixed reactions from Cowboys Nation.

Joey Ickes on Twitter

Since 2003, CIN has had only one season where they finished top-10 in Yards per attempt on the ground… They’ve been bottom-5 in the league 5 times in that span… That’s the OL Coach DAL just hired.

The hiring of an offensive line coach who’s rushing attack finished bottom five in the league in rushing yards per attempt five times since 2003 doesn’t look too great on paper. He will also teach with different techniques and styles than previous Cowboys OL coaches, which could potentially set back the offensive line early in the season.

Plus, respected Bengals’ writer Joe Goodberry did not exactly love the hire for the Cowboys.

Goodberry on Twitter

Pretty bad https://t.co/fysjZqCQ6l

Regardless, this is still a very talented offensive line and one which should lead an effective ground attack based on their talent alone. 2017 proved further that coaching matters a lot in the NFL however, and the wrong hire could set back even the most talented of units.

We will just have to wait and see how this 2018 season ends up playing out.
