Fractured left clavicle for Romo kills Cowboys' season

Well, the Cowboys won’t be playing in the Super Bowl they’ll be hosting.

ESPN’s Mike Tirico told the football-watching world moments ago that Dallas quarterback Tony Romo has a fractured left clavicle. 

Romo suffered the injury on a hit from linebacker Michael Boley, which came at a time when the home team led by only three points, 10-7.  After that, a David Buehler field goal and a Dez Bryant punt return pushed the margin to 13.

The Giants have roared back, via two more touchdown passes from quarterback Eli Manning.  New York currently leads by a point, and there’s a sense that they’ll steamroll the Cowboys the rest of the way.

Since becoming the starter in 2006, Romo has missed only three games.  The absence came in 2008, when he broke a pinkie on his right hand.

There’s no word on his absence this time around, but a broken collarbone usually requires a month, at least, to heal.  By then, the Cowboys could be even more done than they already seem to be.

From a TV-business standpoint, the big question becomes whether Romo will be back for the Thanksgiving game against the Saints.  Then again, whether Romo plays won’t matter.  What else would anyone watch on Thanksgiving afternoon?

    Tony Romo is 90% hype …
    The Cowboys weren’t going anywhere with him and they won’t be going anywhere with Kitna
    Daunte Culpepper to the rescue …

  2. Infidel says: Oct 25, 2010 10:23 PM

    Maybe they can trade for Favre?
    And ALL Chilly problems go bye-bye.
    Giggity.

  3. Kiss Bills Rings says: Oct 25, 2010 10:24 PM

    Well at least the Dallas fans now have an excuse as to why their season is over…..a lousy one, but at least an excuse concidering it was over long before Romo went down….

  4. GurpBadesha says: Oct 25, 2010 10:24 PM

    yeooowwww…… season overrr loserssssssss

  5. CudjoeBill says: Oct 25, 2010 10:24 PM

    What is it, 6-8 weeks for a broken collar bone? or IR?

  6. steelkiller says: Oct 25, 2010 10:24 PM

    I’m sorry for Romo and all Cowboy fans. The hit was as legal as they come. However, I wonder if the league will once again change the rules about not hitting a QB no matter how close the defensive player is to the QB. It would not surprise me.

  7. TJess623 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:25 PM

    Wow Florio, you really are a douche!

  8. trademcscab says: Oct 25, 2010 10:25 PM

    lol nice

  9. NoRingForYou says: Oct 25, 2010 10:26 PM

    Their season was DOA before it ever started

  10. Kolb to Jackson says: Oct 25, 2010 10:26 PM

    Romo is an average QB anyway

  11. jebdamone says: Oct 25, 2010 10:27 PM

    yup, thats pretty official. sorry to all those people who really thought that the boys were hosting the bowl in more ways then one. i wasn’t one of them, and i despise the cowboys but it is still too bad. the nfl and particularly the nfc is having a strange season this year.
    from wiki:
    Full radiological union is typically achieved in 16 weeks for adult surgical patients, and shorter times are achieved by teenagers and young children. In patients who participated in prescribed physical therapy, 85-100% mobility returned in 6–9 months, with full strength returning in 9–12 months.

  12. goskins575 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:27 PM

    what, you mean Jon Kitna is not capable of leading the ‘girls to 11 straight wins and a playoff berth? F Dallas. Go Skins.

  13. Wolfpig says: Oct 25, 2010 10:28 PM

    It wouldn’t have mattered anyway, the Cowboys are the most overrated and over talked-about team in professional sports. They weren’t going anywhere this year.

  14. carp killah says: Oct 25, 2010 10:28 PM

    So do they go out and get someone?

  15. Dont Taze Me Bro says: Oct 25, 2010 10:28 PM

    Jerry was bragging about being the first team to play the Super Bowl on their home field.
    Maybe Jerry can put in a bid to host the 20011 draft since they may be on the clock.

  16. goJags says: Oct 25, 2010 10:29 PM

    Can Dallas trade for David Garrard? We just need a fourth round pick.

  17. Franchise says: Oct 25, 2010 10:29 PM

    Thank you Captain Obvious for telling us that saw it and knew right away.

  18. joshington says: Oct 25, 2010 10:29 PM

    Stick a fork in em baby!!

  19. Terrell Blowens says: Oct 25, 2010 10:29 PM

    I kinda feel bad for Romo cause I hate injuries. and Cowboys fans will be using this as an excuse for the entire remainder of the season. But I love seeing the Cowboys fail.

  20. KingJoe! says: Oct 25, 2010 10:29 PM

    That is too bad. Sad day in Texas. Now how about the Cowboys get revenge and take out Eli’s knees.

  21. oneGIANTloss says: Oct 25, 2010 10:30 PM

    Later Wade! Has anyone ever looked at wade Phillips and not thought “this guy is clueless”

  22. MkePackFan says: Oct 25, 2010 10:30 PM

    Cue the sad trombone *wah wah wah waaaaah*

  23. Lucky5927 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:30 PM

    Someone needs to oil up the John Kitna Band Wagon
    GO BIG BLUE!!!

  24. DieHardSkinsFan21 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:30 PM

    Couldn’t make me happier.

  25. isonic1 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:31 PM

    Damn, that sucks. I wish him the best and hope he recovers fast. This coming from a skins fan.
    Hopefully boyrolls aka skinsblow1 doesn’t kill himself, if he hasn’t already.

  26. Romo-phobic says: Oct 25, 2010 10:31 PM

    Not to worry Mike. They have Jon Kitna! Romo would have choked anyways. At least they don’t have a good looking blonde to blame for another failed season.

  27. joetoronto says: Oct 25, 2010 10:31 PM

    Stick a fork in em, they’re done.

  28. In & Out Burger says: Oct 25, 2010 10:31 PM

    Let’s all remember their record right now, so when the season ends, we don’t hear a bunch of “we would have won it all if Tony Romo wasn’t hurt.”

  29. robmart0906 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:31 PM

    Romo is done…

  30. HolyMoly says: Oct 25, 2010 10:32 PM

    Curtains. 3-13 at best with Kitna in there. He’s just awful. Beg the Saints for Chase Daniel?

  31. Neverend says: Oct 25, 2010 10:32 PM

    Out for the season. Cowboys fans will blame romo being out losing this game which is understandable, but everyone is going to ignore how the terrible the cowboys defense is. Eli looks amazing.

  32. CanadianVikingFanII says: Oct 25, 2010 10:33 PM

    There’s no word on his absence this time around, but a broken collarbone usually requires a month, at least, to heal.

    ESPN says 8-10 weeks, other sites say 8-12 weeks.

  33. Switch1 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:33 PM

    Dam, might be more than 5 losses now.

  34. DieHardSkinsFan21 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:33 PM

    Can’t wait to hear from the sympathizer cowgirl fans. Dallass SUCKS!!!!
    HAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. intelligent_yinzer says: Oct 25, 2010 10:34 PM

    And Romo goes down #nohomo

  36. bspurloc says: Oct 25, 2010 10:34 PM

    Giants 6 games 5 qb’s knocked out.

  37. dennis112484 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:34 PM

    it was already dead. jerry jones is terrible, draft some linemen you clown.

  38. MkePackFan says: Oct 25, 2010 10:35 PM

    Hey Jerruh, God has a way of humbling the boastful & proud (not to mention pride is one of the seven deadly sins).

  39. lithiumfx26 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:35 PM

    Stick a fork in them, they are done!
    At least the Cowboys had already found out they weren’t any good with Romo.
    Romo gone probably for the year and the Boys are done. How many more times are they on National TV? Thank god for the flex schedule.

  40. ochostinko says: Oct 25, 2010 10:35 PM

    Why can’t the Cowboys make it to the Super Bowl? The 49ers are still going to make the playoffs according to Mike Singletary, so Dallas must certainly have a shot at the title!

  41. TerpsFan1972 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:37 PM

    and that, as they say, is that…
    if only this was playstation and you could press reset.

  42. Brick Tamland says: Oct 25, 2010 10:37 PM

    Too bad for Romo. But thanks for the reminder that the rest of us get to look forward to prime time games from the Vikings or Cowboys every week for the rest of the season. Whoever made the schedule for NBC and ESPN must have thought this looked like a great plan back in April but now…not so much.

  43. ArcticEdge says: Oct 25, 2010 10:37 PM

    Tough break. But let’s be real, this break didn’t really kill their season. It’s been killed a few times already.

  44. RugDaniels says: Oct 25, 2010 10:37 PM

    sucks. can’t really enjoy the game after that. I cheered the hit when it happened, but I really hate to hear this news. I’ve never really liked Romo as a top tier QB, he doesn’t show up in big games. He’s a big part of why it’s fun to play the Cowboys though. Maybe Jessica will come back around and give him a sympathy tug.

  45. obxfannings says: Oct 25, 2010 10:38 PM

    Has anyone checked to see if Jessica Simpson is putting the hammer and nail to her custom Tony Romo voodoo doll? Will Jerry be hanging Super Bowl tickets in his team’s lockers this year? When does Jerry say to hell with it and grab the whistle he so covets? So funny, you can’t make this shit up!!!

  46. Tommy Love says: Oct 25, 2010 10:38 PM

    I don’t know that I’ve ever been so happy! Seahawks in first place (improbably!), and now Jerry Jones has to sit and eat crow for the rest of the season, knowing his dream of a home Super Bowl is done.
    He represents everything bad about the NFL, and all these underdog teams like the Seahawks, Chiefs, TB, etc, represent everything good.
    The Cowgirl fans are going to go mental over this one!!!!!
    Wooo hooo!

  47. NY NY says: Oct 25, 2010 10:39 PM

    How come at the end of the game they say Bob, tony and Mike Florio on Sunday nights and use Florios full name?

  48. Deb says: Oct 25, 2010 10:40 PM

    Mr. Doom and Gloom!!
    John Kitna is a good QB. You can’t just pronounce their season over. Ever hear of Jeff Hostetler? Frank Reich? Matt Cassel?
    I don’t like the Cowboys, but there’s no need to just stab people in the heart. My goodness, you are just a lil Typhoid Mikey, aren’t you?

  49. sammm says: Oct 25, 2010 10:41 PM

    Turn out the lights, the party’s over.

  50. j-wil says: Oct 25, 2010 10:41 PM

    Jon Kitna……..you can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him.
    Enjoy the super bowl cowboys!

  51. rawisdan says: Oct 25, 2010 10:42 PM

    Turn out the lights….

  52. wydok says: Oct 25, 2010 10:44 PM

    Must…….not………..laugh…….at…………another’s………….misfortune

  54. Stubbs156 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:45 PM

    This is no good. You hate to see anyone get injured, regardless of the team. Crushed? Yes. Hurt*? Yes. Injured? No. Not to mention that this will be used by most puke fans as the reason behind their squads pathetic showing, lack of attention to detail, and dismal season.

  55. if yer not first... says: Oct 25, 2010 10:46 PM

    I don’t think they’re going anywhere either but Kitna every bit the quarterback Romo is-the Cowboys aren’t hurt by this at all.

  56. Beer Cheese Soup says: Oct 25, 2010 10:48 PM

    Someone bring me a fork, the Cowboys are done.
    As is Minnesota.
    Could not happen to two better teams.

  57. FTHEACLU says: Oct 25, 2010 10:48 PM

    Their season was already dead. Now they have the excuse they’ll milk to no end.

  58. badabingtime says: Oct 25, 2010 10:48 PM

    y para mi el arroz con pollo

  59. 305phinphan says: Oct 25, 2010 10:50 PM

    Send the Dolphins a 3rd and you can have Pennington or Thigpen…….both huge upgrades over Kitna.

  60. FlyinO says: Oct 25, 2010 10:51 PM

    Florio, the sensationalistic headline is very unbecoming and screams hackery.
    The Cowboys’ season was over when the Skins exposed them for the weaklings they are.

  61. metalhead0043 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:52 PM

    GG media darlings. See you next year.

  63. FireJerryJones says: Oct 25, 2010 10:54 PM

    Season was DOA

  64. irishgary says: Oct 25, 2010 10:56 PM

    No shit, they were never gonna play in it anyway, not with that owner/coach and team

  65. Clock_Is_King says: Oct 25, 2010 10:56 PM

    You really think the clavicle kills the cowgirls season?
    You don’t think it’s their abyssmal performance even with Romo?

  66. Hail says: Oct 25, 2010 10:58 PM

    Even as a Skins fan, it sucks when any player gets hurt, especially a QB. Does look like that could spell the end for the 2010 season though.

  67. Gryphon 38 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:59 PM

    Let’s see, if players get fined and suspended for hard helmet to helmet contact that causes injury, who does the NFL fine when bodies and heads slam hard into the artifical turf and that impact breaks a clavicle or causes the concussion?
    Since day one artifical turf has be a key element in the majority of injuries over the decades.
    Makes me wonder if the severity of the concussion differs between a hit that snaps the QB’s head into natural turf vs artifical turf. My bet is that artifical turf creates the more severe injury. What say you NFL?
    And, hey, I have been watching NFL games for decades, and still vividly remember seeing YA Tittle on his knees at the end of the game with the blood on his bald head. Yea, pros today are big and strong, and have better protection and equipment than there was in the 50′s. But, don’t anyone tell me boys of ole didn’t hit hard. Except for Ray Lewis, I have yet to see anyone on the level of Dick Butkus.
    The game was intended for grass, and rain, and snow, and wind, and mud. Real football has always been played outdoors.

  68. TopJimmy says: Oct 25, 2010 10:59 PM

    Never underestimate the power of the Cryin’ Lion. Kitna is (how old?) just what the ‘Boys need. That and a spine for Wade Phillips. Well, Wade might need a job too.

  69. cornflorio says: Oct 25, 2010 10:59 PM

    1-15

  70. Jamzy says: Oct 25, 2010 10:59 PM

    As a Redskins fan…….Christmas just came early!!!
    It was tough to choose who to cheer for tonight…..Cowboys win and we are 1st in the East, but the sheer thought of rooting for them would be something that I just cannot do!!!
    How’s it feel Skeletor!!!!LMAO!!!!!!

  71. Mike_in_Texas says: Oct 25, 2010 11:00 PM

    Season is over.. Tony wont return until wk 15-16-17..
    Maybe for Christmas vs. Cardinals.
    Too bad.. Dallas had their time to shine the last 5yrs. If they didn’t capitalized its all on them..
    Same With SD, NE, Indy
    Eagles,Raiders,Jets,Texans are about to take those Divisions
    Winds of Change

  72. Colorado Thistle says: Oct 25, 2010 11:00 PM

    The Cowboys have officially quit at 5:25 left in the 3rd.

  73. MrHumble says: Oct 25, 2010 11:01 PM

    The look on Jerrah the Pimp Jones in his private suite is………..priceless!!!!!!!!

  74. ETL says: Oct 25, 2010 11:02 PM

    Legal hit by Boley but it will still cost him about 25,000 because it was on a starting QB

  75. SJPB8 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:03 PM

    I’m pretty sure losing killed the Cowboys season, the broken collarbone is just another thing to use as an excuse. This season was over before tonights game even started.

  76. JakeBlues68 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:03 PM

    I’m pretty sure their season was dead before the cracked clavicle.

  77. NJBoysFan says: Oct 25, 2010 11:05 PM

    I’m just so sad. And now I have to spend the next 5 months, listening to these Midgets fans talking about they “killed Romo” bc they know zilch about football. I would’ve cut Gronkowski at halftime, because he’ll be mentally useless for the rest of the season. Knowing he cost his team any chance at salvaging their season single handedly.
    YOU BLOCK INSIDE OUT AND THEN WORRY ABOUT GETTING OUT ON YOUR ROUTE. YOU’RE THE LAST READ ON THE PLAY, BLOCKING IS PARAMOUNT. Ahhhhh I’m just so aggravated, we finally looked like a football team for a few series.

  78. 1up says: Oct 25, 2010 11:05 PM

    Hey Especially Stupid People Network, please turn down the crowd noise on the telecast. I cannot hear crap from your stable of exceptionally great commentators and their objective opinions. Actually, never mind. That is probably a good thing.

  79. J says: Oct 25, 2010 11:05 PM

    “How bout them Cowgirls” I love the look on Jerry Jones face.

  80. Spiffy Kiffy says: Oct 25, 2010 11:06 PM

    Where is everybody?

  81. THNKIMRT says: Oct 25, 2010 11:06 PM

    Will Jerry Jones ever get the bad mojo off of him for firing/running the greatest, or 1A Cowboys coach off due to his ego??

  82. Mangy66 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:07 PM

    Ouch!!!
    And the offensive line keeps getting thinner (no pun intended).
    Kitna doesn’t look very good either.
    Daunte Culpepper??? LOL

  83. pbassguy says: Oct 25, 2010 11:08 PM

    Hate it for Romo, but who in the hell made the decision to have a John Kitna as a backup qb ?As prevelant as qb injuries are, you would think that there would be someone who at least has played in the last two years who could come in and at least look like a QB. No one in the NfL is bulletproof. Look at Kerry Collins performance yesterday,everyone was saying why they paying him $5 million a year to sit on the bench. He earned that money yesterday. Jerry Jones brought this upon himself by not having an established backup or by thinking Romo would not get hurt. Either way it falls on him. Jamarcus???????

  84. heavythumb says: Oct 25, 2010 11:08 PM

    Duh.

  85. cole prince says: Oct 25, 2010 11:09 PM

    I’m watching Dallas quit on the season as I’m typing. This team is pathetic. There is nothing else to say bout them cowboys.

  86. PurpleRaid12 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:10 PM

    Cowboys just can’t seem to catch a break….. too soon?

  87. raedwyn09 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:11 PM

    Maybe he can get Jessica back to rub his nut sack while he recovers!

  88. Spiffy Kiffy says: Oct 25, 2010 11:12 PM

    Go for the first round draft pick!
    …..then again Jerrah would probably take a kicker or something stupid!
    Another way to keep Jerrah from saying any of this is his fault. Lord knows, Jerrah would have made that block if he were playing.

  89. sethb22 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:15 PM

    Romo has a bad arm??? Is there news here? hopefully ESPN can get off there nuts now, there 1-5 talk about winning teams….Like the Bucs!!!

  90. florio4prez says: Oct 25, 2010 11:16 PM

    Dear Cryboys and Cryboys Fans,
    You will soon be 1-5. It will seem like an eternity getting there, but soon it will be all over tonight.
    When you become 1-5, your license to say, infer or hint that you have the most talented team in the NFL will expire. Please refrain from this, as it will only serve to embarrass you more than (perhaps) even you deserve.
    With Romo, you had a slight chance of going 8-8. With Little Johnny Kitna, you are now clearly headed for a 4-12 or maybe a 5-11 season.
    I kindly suggest you dust off your Draft Board and get started on the humbling process of formulating your 2011 draft strategy with 10 games yet to be played in the 2010 season.
    BTW Mikey, the loss of Romo DID NOT kill the Cryboys season. Their miserable performance that lead to a 1-4 start did that. Romo’s injury was simply the most recent log on the fire.
    Stillers win. Cryboys lose. Life is great!
    f4p

  91. Dr. Steve says: Oct 25, 2010 11:16 PM

    Tony Romo is the first casualty of the NFL’s new “No Head Shots” policy, in my opinion.
    Michael Boley hit Romo with a clean shot, but he had to make sure he wouldn’t smash Romo in the head. So, Michael clobbered Romo with a withering shot to the left side. Hitting Romo shoulder high, Boley drove him to the ground landing on the QB’s shoulder. The result: Romo winds up with a fractured left clavicle.
    Had Boley been free to sack Romo in his usual ferocious fashion, Tony would have been aware of it, in my opinion, felt Boley coming and protected himself.
    Romo is the first to go down. I’ll be interested to see how many others fall as a result of the NFL’s protective”No Head Shots” policy.

  92. Slim Charles says: Oct 25, 2010 11:17 PM

    10 buck says Goodell is gonna figure out some new rule to go after the Giants D now.

  93. J says: Oct 25, 2010 11:17 PM

    Hey Jerry Jones I spent $0.00 and I got the same odds as you do of playing in the Super Bowl @ Cowboys stadium as the Cowgirls do…….How much did you spend again?……

  94. CanadianVikingFanII says: Oct 25, 2010 11:17 PM

    I see how it is PFT, if I mention a rival media outlet not producing the same information as you, you don’t post my response.

  95. midwest says: Oct 25, 2010 11:18 PM

    Fantasy tip….Get John Kitna this week and start him. The Cowboys play the Jaguars on Sunday, and the Jaguars pass defense is the worst I have seen in years.

  96. bspurloc says: Oct 25, 2010 11:18 PM

    giants played 6 games have knocked out 5 qb’s now.

  97. skinsblowpoles says: Oct 25, 2010 11:18 PM

    again the refs missed a cheap hit on romo…the guy launched him and turned his shoulder driving it into the turf…oh well…refs miss another won and have cost us a couple of games this year so i guess that the way it should end.
    horrible officiating this year across the board.

  98. 12+81=7 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:19 PM

    Is the most insurmountable 18 point lead of all time? It feels as though the Boys are down by 180, not 18.

  99. HakeemTheDream says: Oct 25, 2010 11:19 PM

    WTF are you talking about looking like a team, the Cowboys had 55 yards total offense. If the Giants weren’t handing the game away on turnovers, mental mistakes, and special teams it already would’ve been a 3 score game. The Cowboys have consistently been the most overrated team in the NFL for about 4 years now.

  100. houstonsimpleton says: Oct 25, 2010 11:19 PM

    38-20 Giants, still 4 minutes left in 3rd qtr: ladies and gentlemen, we give you quintessential Jerry Jones football.
    Hard to tell who laid down first, the offensive line, or the defense. I think it was the offensive line, because they were on the field first….

  101. J. Clayton says: Oct 25, 2010 11:20 PM

    Don’t worry, they play the Jags next week.
    They will win by 20 or more points.
    This is coming from a huge Jags fan (season tix holder)

  102. rhf123 says: Oct 25, 2010 11:20 PM

    Maybe the Eagles could trade them one of their QBs for a pass defense.

  103. Altschul says: Oct 25, 2010 11:20 PM

    Fans of the Vikings, Saints, Packers, etc. whose teams are decimated by injuries:
    At least your team isn’t the Cowboys.
    It’s a mercy killing. At least now Cowboys fans won’t have to suffer through another minute of false hope that they might dig their way back into contention.

    Jerry Jones the GM, no realistic backup for our starting QB.

    Wade Phillips, incapable of relaying the troops.
    Jason Garrett, calling plays like he doesn’t want to be here anymore.

    No sympathy here for Romo’s injury – the Cowboys threw Drew Bledsoe under the bus for this clown. Maybe now they’ll figure out to stop the reckless spending and start working to build a real team, with the owner staying out of all decision-making and the emphasis being exclusively on non-stars who want to play together.
    Romo deserves to not play.

  119. tig 0 bitties says: Oct 25, 2010 11:43 PM

    Romo is going to be out for way over a month if he broke it. I broke my collar bone (among other things) right before football season one year. missed the whole year. i don’t quite remember how long it took before i could play sports but it was awhile. i guess my collar bone was in 3 pieces so that coulda factored into it. but Romo playing at an NFL level with the hits he would take he would have to make sure that thing is back to 100% strength or else its snapping like a twig.

    So Romo goes down and the Boys will end up with something like a 3-13 record, which allows them to pick early enough in the draft to get a real/i> QB.
    Strange justice!

  130. Simon12345 says: Oct 26, 2010 12:08 AM

    I am a Redskin fan and I feel for Romo…he’s actually a pretty classy guy and even though I dislike the Cowboys, it sucks to see someone hurt.
    That said, what is this business that the “reason” Cowboys season is “killed” is because of Romo’s injury. Dude, their season was dead already. The Giants may have rolled like this anyway. I mean, Romo doesn’t play defense and the Giants just hung 41 on them…ouch.

  131. youngtorice says: Oct 26, 2010 12:11 AM

    Gee you get the typical poor sportsman fan asking for a cheap shot to manning’s knees because romo got broke in half by a perfectly clean and legal hit.

  132. BigMacAttack says: Oct 26, 2010 12:15 AM

    Introducing the new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys:
    Jon Gruden, the $10Million Man.
    Also in the news. The Bucs traded Rudy Carpenter to the Cowboys for an undisclosed draft pick.
    Lane Kiffin is whining because Jon Gruden hired Monte Kiffin as his new Defensive coordinator. Lane was offered a position as water boy.

  133. NJBoysFan says: Oct 26, 2010 12:17 AM

    Cowboys are obviously toast. Giants looked very good for stretches. But too many turnovers. They really were trying to lose the game. Btw Hakeem Nicks is crazy.
    I’m still just so sad. I had resigned myself to being 9-7 and getting there by showing some pride. If the Jets can win with Sanchez, maybe our D can show some guts and rally around Stephen McGee, bc there is no reason to have Kitna start. Might as well evaluate McGee. I really hope Jerry, realizes he knows a lot about making money, but nothing about personnel.

    horrible officiating this year across the board.

  135. JohnnyBallsack says: Oct 26, 2010 12:40 AM

    I never wish for an injury to anyone, but I definitely saw this one coming. The NYG D is the last thing a QB wants to see this season.
    Anyone blaming the loss on Kitna- he probably hasn’t taken a first team snap in practice…ever. The defense didn’t play with a hurt quarterback.
    I changed my mind, Childress was the worst coach yesterday. The clear honor goes to Wade Phillips. He does not use replay responsibly, went for TD instead of FG, blew several other plays. And if your backup QB does not work in practice during the week, why is he staying “no huddle” after incompletions and balls out of bounds. Clueless that is why. The score only got close because NYG already had their party hats on.

  136. lgwelsh1 says: Oct 26, 2010 12:46 AM

    The Cowboys are lost, they don’t have any direction or a true team leader. Wade is a good football man but he has clearly lost control of this team. Jerry needs to clean house and start over.
    Tony Romo is not the future, he is a good player but he is not going to win you a Super Bowl. Wade Phillips is a good football man but not a head coach to take you all the way.
    Get rid of the entire coaching staff and start over.
    Bring in Bill Cower, trade for…..Michael Vick…..
    DO it Jerry!

    Romo’s broken clavicle didn’t kill the Cowboys season. It was already dead. Tony, Wade and Jerry made sure of that before the injury ever happened. No matter who plays in the Super Bowl this year (hopefully Giants over Jets), it will be one of the best because we will get to see Jerry try to smile and be a good host while gritting his teeth and raising his blood pressure. He pretty much guaranteed a Cowboy Super Bowl win before the season started. “We will be playing at home for the Super Bowl”, etc…

    So what you are saying is that you haven’t seen any Texans games this year? McNabb has a 76 QB rating but he lit them up. He hasn’t cracked 80 the rest of the season. :P
    Seriously I know Kitna is old but hell, he looked better in Martz’ offense than Cutler does. I like that McGee kid, maybe he will get a shot.

    Florio, please do 3 seconds worth of research (or simply do a google search). Romo did not miss 3 games in 2008 due to a broken finger on his non-throwing hand. I understand your a Redskins fan and it’s hard to contain your excitement that you won’t be the NFC East cellar dwellers this year but you need to remain a professional first. Romo broke a finger on his THROWING hand in 2008 causing him to miss 3 games.

    The Cowboys hype for next season will probably begin in the next month or so. Also, I like the acting job the Cowboys training staff and Romo performed when Romo tried to go back onto the field and they yanked him back.

    When people hate on Romo it shows there lack of football knowledge. This guy went undrafted fought his way into the starting role, made a pro bowl, took his team to the playoffs every year, and his lowest rating for a year was 91.4. Did Dan Marino win a super bowl? You cant judge people on super bowls

    The Dallas “Lullboys”
    On the defense giving up 31 unanswered points, Wade “Puppet” Phillips described it as “a lull after Tony left.” Guess what, Wade? It’s been a lull since Jimmy Johnson left and it will be a lull until Mr. Jones gets some “real” football people in there and locks himself into his luxury suite. This team sucked in preseason and has sucked ever since – no discipline, no pass rush, no running game and the play calling….well, let’s just say there’s been a lull since Norv Turner left. The most recent debacle (Monday night) looked like an early Halloween party where Jason Garrett was the Grim Reaper refusing to run the ball as usual and the defense dressed up as a “BYE WEEK”. Teams that win the NFC East RUN the football – always have and always will!!! Ask Jimmy Johnson – and while you’re at it ask Jimmy about the play when Romo got hurt. Wade “Constant Lost Look On My Face” Phillips said Chris Gronkowski was supposed to have gotten in Boley’s way….we just made a mistake….it was a base thing we’ve run since training camp. Jimmy would have said “Chris Who?”…..he’s no longer with us, next question. It’s called discipline, focus, commitment and all those other things that win football games. Jimmy Johnson and other winners preach it and demand it while Wade sings lullabies. Now we can all sing a lulla-bye-bye to another talk the talk but can’t walk the walk season! HOW BOUT DEM LULLBOYS!!!

  159. Arizona Buckeye says: Oct 27, 2010 6:00 PM

    Um – they were 1 – 4 when he was playing so their season was already over – Romo’s injury just makes it pretty much official until they are actually mathematically eliminated.

  160. Mark Brown says: Oct 28, 2010 11:58 AM

    I have been a Cowboy fan since the days of Willie, Lilly, Jethro, and George. (Figure that one out). We have our ups and downs like every other team. Losing Romo indeed killed our season, which indeed was killed already. Overconfidence, lack of discipline, are the biggest reasons. But the main problem is Wade Philips. He just can’t run a football team. Until JJ removes his nose from operations, I’m afraid it will always be this way. And yes, he screwed Tom Landry, and some folks would say he’s getting what he deserves. But you can’t argue with the financial success; he has just kicked the rest of the leagues butt in that respect. Alas, I remain a fan, always will be.
