Cowboys Extra Points: Tackles and Trash Talk

Gerald Sensabaugh has been fined by the NFL for a horse collar tackle during last Sunday’s game.

Josh Ellis reports,

Safety Gerald Sensabaugh received notice Wednesday of a $5,000 fine for a horse collar tackle in the second quarter of Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay.

Though no flag was thrown, the league’s official review concluded the first-year Cowboy had illegally pulled down Bucs running back Cadillac Williams from behind. Sensabaugh said he thought it was a legal tackle because he had grabbed Williams’ jersey, not the inside of his pads.

I clearly remember the play, and I even questioned if it was a horse collar during our live game chat. Seems a little harsh to fine someone $5,000 when no penalty was called, and no one was hurt.

Tony Romo has been nominated for the NFL’s FedEx Air & Ground Player of the Week Award. You can vote up until Friday at 11 a.m. CST. Place your votes – http://www.nfl.com/partner?partnerType=players-air-and-ground. Romo is up against Drew Brees and Joe Flacco.

Oddly enough former Cowboy Julius Jones is up for the ‘Ground’ award, along with Thomas Jones and Adrian Peterson.

Linebacker Stephen Hodge had microfracture surgery on his left knee while linebacker Brandon Williams is expected to have his reconstructive knee surgery within the next couple of weeks.

Felix oh Felix! Please stay healthy!

Felix Jones was limited in play during last Sunday’s game due to a bruised thigh, and will possibly be limited this week as well. Here is what has been posted on the Cowboys official website.

RB Felix Jones – quad (9/13) – Although he continued to play, Jones was limited after suffering a quad injury during a big tackle in the first quarter. The Cowboys held him out of some third-down plays and replaced him in the second half with Miles Austin on one kickoff return.

Have you heard what Brandon Jacobs said yet?

“No question,” he replied. “I hate the Cowboys with a bloody passion.”

I asked him what the difference between a “regular passion” and a “bloody passion” was.

“You want to go into the game as being assassins,” he said, referring to the feelings of bloody passion, “instead of tough football players in a game like that.”

He most likely heard what DeMarcus Ware said, “I hate those New York Giants!”

Nothing like some good old fashioned division rivalry trash talk! Bring on those Giants!

Romo Named NFC Player of the Week

That’s right people, if you haven’t already heard the buzz Tony Romo has been named NFC Player of the Week. What an honor, it’s his second time to get the award this year and his fourth time in his short tenure as a starter.

In my opinion, no one is more deserving. Romo is breaking records all over the place and proving to everyone that he is one of the elite QBs in the league. Last week’s game had been talked about for months. But with Brett Favre leaving with a couple of interceptions and an injury, and Romo leaving with 19-of-30 completions, 309 yards and 4 touchdowns, no one could have predicted that outcome.

This has been a magical year and it starts with the brightest star in Dallas, Mr. Tony Romo. Anyone who ever questioned his abilites surely won’t do so now. He has proven himself time after time, and as long as he keeps playing with all of his heart, you can rest assured it will lead to nothing but victories. Just sit back and enjoy the show Cowboys fans!

By the way, Rom has also been nominated for the FedEx Air & Ground Offensive Player of the Week at nfl.com. You can vote for him here.
