Full story: El Paso Times 71
When Tony Romo and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys starters were on the field in the preseason opener, all that Super Bowl talk certainly seemed relevant. Full Story

Was everyone else disappointed in the telecast? It seemed very cheap. Viewers were bombarded with ads to line Jerry Jones pockets with cash. Season tickets, bricks for the new stadium, etc. I know where Jones can stick his bricks.

im sure the cowboys will come back after this loss. considering the first half, was played so well, we should come back and make up for that loss . this to shall pass. will not give up on my cowboys, ive been following them since 1960s when we had tom landry and roger staubach, and tex schramm. that americas team will refocus and keep on going as only we know how . and with the good lord as our guide in times past we will forge on to victory. to god be the glory. how bout them cowboys, how bout them cowgirls. we love youll, we are family. go get em! charlotte and family in conroe tx

No reason at all for concern with the starters.

Romo and the first team offense were perfect.

The first team defense roughed up Phillip Rivers and forced two "3 and outs".

The only first team Chargers score came as a result of a fumble by the Cowboys 3rd team PR and a questionable PI call in the endzone.

My only concern is with Kick coverage (correctable in preseason) and the backup QB situation.

Preseason games are always low grade. How cares anyways.

The offense and defense starters played very well.

We dont need them playing more than one quarter anyways in a preseason game.

The Cowboys will own the east this season(as well as the Giants). Eli will no doubt be up to his weak poor performing style once again.

One drive does not a QB make so you Giants fans enjoy the last few months you have as reigning world champs. It's about to come to a humiliating end and who knows how long it will be before you get there again.

LOL. Any Dallas fan talking smack about QBs needs to take a look at their last two playoff games. Romo will keep finding newer and more humiliating ways to choke away the season, and it will keep getting more and more fun to watch!

Maybe his new girlfriend (I heard Simpson dumped him because he can't win an important game) will show up and distract him or maybe he'll just botch some more snaps or throw some more costly INTs. Either way - sounds like fun!

What exactly did Romo do in the divisional playoff game that cost the Cowboys a win?
The two big mistakes I saw were on the part of Patrick Crayton and the Dallas defense (both just before the half). If Crayton doesn't drop the ball (or stop running his route on their second to last play on offense) on third down just before the half (which would have put the Cowboys in scoring position), or the defense doesn't give up a huge penalty to give the Giants a chance with seconds before the half, then the Cowboys almost certainly win that football game. It is pretty ignorant to put it on Romo...

As for the wildcard game the previous year, if not for Romo, they are neither in the playoffs or certainly not in position to kick a GW fg in the first place...Give me a break!

Cowboy haters are sooooo stupido. The past is the past and this new season will be exponentially better. If the only thing you got is Romo being dumped then google away some more until you find some valid dirt cause what you got aint nothing.

Every hater brings up Jessica cause that is all thy got to sling at us. Pretty lame if you ask me. Who cares about that chick.

Cowboys are a disappointment period.

Patriots on the other hand would crush those jokes.

Refresh my memory. Who won the Suber Bowl last year?

Oh yeah. Not the Cowboys. They weren't even in the NFC Championship Game. PacMan will change all that!!! ROTFL. You cowboys fans are the most delusional fools I've ever seen! Regular season record this year: 10-4. You heard it here first.

Geez who is the better QB? Romo managed to lose Dallas' last three games while Eli won his last 3 (and a much better effort vs. the Patsies in a meaningless game than Romo El Choke-O managed in a very meaningful game).

http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/recap...

Read it and weep. If it's not the Giants this year, someone else will surely come along and ruin the Cowgirls' season. Bank on it.

Haters? HAHAHAHA. How can you hate a team that sucks so bad and is so good at shooting itself in the foot (CHOKERS)? They're FUN to watch, ese!

So what you're saying is that it's not just Romo El-Choke-O that can't execute, but their whole team (minus the vilified T.O.- remember his awesome danceS on the Cowgirls' star a few years back? LOL!) and coaching staff? OK. I'm with you on that one then.

Yes. The cowGirls suck. Get used to it dude. Do you REALLY think WADE FRIGGIN PHILLIPS is going to take them to the SB? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHH AHAHAH
You are a loser

can you make any more excuses for your wimpy qb and his bad decision making? the cowboys fans have always been full of excuses and the dream of merchandisers everywhere. u fools buy up that crap wear like its going out of style when it already did. cowboys wont win another playoff game for at least 4 years.

Add two more losses then. I was thinking of the fantasy football schedule.

10-6, or if they're lucky 11-5. Assuming there aren't multiple arrests and off-field incidents - and that's assuming a lot.

I don't hate the Cowgirls at all. I love watching them lose games they are "supposed" to win every year and watching the dejected looks on my friends' faces and seeing their days ruined by these losses. Especially consecutive disappointments in the playoffs. HAHA.

Do you cowboys fans know why you have to resort to the word "haters"? It's because you're the most obnoxious fans in the football universe. When you're winning you're rubbing it in, and when you're losing you're whining and moaning about everything the refs and your goat of the week did to make it happen.

Or you just can't count... or you don't know anything about NFL football...What kind of fan doesn't know there are 16 games in the regular season?

Your credibility is at zero.

Multiple arrests? Another piece of evidence that proves you know very little. The Dallas Cowboys have not had a player under contract arrested in many years. If you want arrests, look at the New England Patriots who have had 4 arrests in the last 5 months, or the New York Giants--who had their changeup RB in jail a week before training camp!

If you are going to argue with me, you had better do your homework...

As for your prediction, what the heck is wrong with 11-5? That should be enough to win the division, and with their schedule, 11-5 is perfectly reasonable (although I have them winning 12 games). Was that supposed to be insulting?
I think you would be better off finding a different topic. You're not very good at this...

Again with the whining. Just proving my point once again, huh?

11-5 is a far cry from what the *rest* of the cowgirls fans are predicting for this year, and adding another playoff choke I wouldn't be surprised either. So we agree!

Regarding the number of games in the season, well I already explained that. Besides, Superfan (TM) I never claimed to be the uber cowgirl fanatic that you did. But I bet I would whoop your ass at knowing just about any stat from the past 7 years.

As far as the arrests go, well Pacman wasn't part of the team until very recently was he? Looks like you're the one who's not very good at this...
