    Re: Romo out 4 weeks, broken pinky finger on throwing hand

    Dallas is in trouble (healthy Romo or not), period.

    I've been saying it almost ever week and no one wants to buy it.

    This team has no sense of urgency. No undying drive to win. Tenacity is just not there.

    I hated the way Dallas finished games against the Browns and Packers - too "happy-go-lucky". I was criticized because I should just enjoy the win.

    Bullcrap. This team is showing the same signs already this year that were shown in the 2nd half of the season last year.

    Not good.

    Only saving grace is perhaps there is plenty of time to fix it. This "easy-street" team attitude starts at the top and if Wade not only wants to win, but also keep his job - he'll instill a little more discipline and drive in this team...now.

    Perhaps now that Romo is out, guys will step up and realize these games will decide their fate come January.

    Does that mean Brad Johnson is going to be the starter? Wow. Great guy, but his arm strength is gone. Get ready for a TO eruption. Brad has trouble with 20 yard passes.

    I am shocked that they've done as well as they have the past couple of years. Yeah, they definitely have the talent. But, I think Wade Phillips is just worthless as a head coach. He inherited the team that "Tuna" built and has reaped the rewards. It's going to come out eventually, with or without Romo that he's a fraud. He'll probably be gone mid-season next year, as will T.O. and it will be back to the lab again...

    Re: Romo out 4 weeks, broken pinky finger on throwing hand

    I don't dislike Wade, I think he's an ok coach. I don't think he's a good coach however and I said that they day he was hired. The guy looks like he should be selling insurance or wandering the beach with a drink in his hand - not coaching football.

    Smart guy, just does not have that killer instinct and discipline I prefer to see in coaches. And when you watch Dallas play - it's clear those things are lacking.

    Re: Romo out 4 weeks, broken pinky finger on throwing hand

    wow. this is huge. I wonder if he'll be back in time for the Skins game. They ought to beat St. Louis. Probably won't win at NY, and Tampa is a toss-up. Then again, with Brad Johnson at QB... I don't know how to finish that sentence. It might be bad.

    As a Vikings fan I cannot feel bad about any of the Cowboys problems.

    Re: Romo out 4 weeks, broken pinky finger on throwing hand

    It's easy to forget Brad is 71-51 as a starting QB in the NFL and has a SB ring.

    However, I'm still not feeling good about this at all. With the offensive line playing, offensive...and Brad not having the moves Tony does - the 3rd QB may want to get ready.

    Re: Romo out 4 weeks, broken pinky finger on throwing hand

    I saw a good bit of the Cowboys preseason games, as they were all on local TV. In those games, Brad Johnson did not look good, at all.

    The Cowboys pass protection has not exactly been stellar this year. Romo makes alot of plays because he can use his footwork to avoid the pass rush. This does not describe Brad Johnson.

    Phillips/Jones could be on the verge of a Childress-type blunder here in not having an adequate back-up to step in...

    Re: Romo out 4 weeks, broken pinky finger on throwing hand

    If Brad Johnson takes as many hits next week as Romo took this week I would look at the 2 Deeps and see if there was some room for Dauntee because Brad may be broken in two.

    It's very easy to forget his record if you watched his recent stint with the Vikings. Johnson is nowhere close to the qb that won the Super Bowl. Say goodbye to your vertical passing game, Dallas, BJ has no arm. I mean none. I'll give you accuracy on the short stuff. That, he's got. And he's a smart qb, but this is not a guy who can just step into the same system that Romo was playing. Witten should benefit, as well as Marion Barber, but the deep pass threat is nearly gone.
