Romo to Williams Finally Connected

Roy WilliamsRoy Williams stirred up a little controversy this past week saying the balls Romo was throwing to him were all over the place.

Well Sunday night against Philadelphia they finally connected. It was not a ton of catches nor was it for a ton of yards, but it was nice to see Williams catch five for 75 yards. It was great to see Williams thrust his hand forward after making a first down.

I am not sure what the issues were, but the extra work put in at practice must have helped. Maybe it was the fact the Miles Austin was drawing double coverage and that left Williams one on one or maybe it was Williams running crisper routes and getting open. Whatever it was, it was great to see.

Hopefully we will continue to see the Romo to Williams connection and hopefully it will account for more touchdowns.

The Cowboys are learning to play well together in all phases of the game. That becomes more evident along the way as we ride this four game winning streak.

Next up are the Cheeseheads from Green Bay lets show them how our team can play. GO COWBOYS!!!

Revenge is Sweet, So Is First Place

Every Cowboys game, no matter the expectations or what is on the line, gets me pumped up. But tonight, oh tonight was unbelievable!

What a game! I have to say I am so proud of this team. They played with heart and gave everything they had and it paid off. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but we also knew it was in our reach all we had to do was fight for it.

Now, all the doubters who kept asking the question if the Dallas Cowboys can win a big game have been silenced.

This was definitely a team effort and everyone got involved. Everyone on the field and on the sidelines did a tremendous job.

All night as Al Michaels and Cris Collingsworth continuously forced us to relive last December 28th, repeating the numbers 44-6 over and over, I never lost faith in this team. We all know what happened last year, we relived it in our minds over and over for months.

I will keep this short and sweet because we have all week to ride this winning streak – but I’d just like to repeat what I said yesterday – PAYBACK IS A BITCH PHILLY!

THE UNOFFICIAL START TO THE 2009 SEASON

Free agency started overnight and for a lot of us fans the new season has just begun.

The bad taste that has been in my mouth since the Cowboys lost in Philadelphia is slowly disappearing. Even though the Cowboys are not projected to make any big signings, this is what being a Cowboys fan is all about. You know what I mean don’t you?

Debating who should back up Tony, or  looking for a veteran safety, corner, or inside linebacker… Cowboys talk is just great!  

Then we have the draft.

The draft is probably my favorite weekend of the year. Mock drafts followed by mock drafts, and even more mock drafts, I just cant get enough!

Then OTA’s, mini-camps, and talking about how players are looking, and  what our chances are in 09. 

I just cannot get enough Cowboy chatter. Then before you know it its July and we are talking training camp which I will be attending for the first time in my life! And just like that we are breaking down our first matchup in week one. 

Isn’t this is what being a die hard Cowboys fan is all about.

A Texas-Size Running Back Controversy

Even before the Philadelphia Daily News posted the rumor that Julius Jones could be traded for the right price, we were talking about the Cowboys running back dilemma. Right after the season ended we asked this question:

1. I love both Julius Jones and Marion Barber equally, but both of them want to start and yet only one of them can. How does this situation resolve itself next season?

We didn’t get many responses, I think alot of people didn’t consider it an issue. Think about it though, we have two starters but only one of them can actually start. Yes, Marion Barber got most of the touchdowns, an impressive 16. Julius Jones only had 4 TDs but he racked up 1084 rushing yards in 2006. It was a nice 2-back system Parcells was running. But alot has changed since last season ended, and even more will change before training camp comes around. And don’t forget about Tyson Thompson. Tyson was placed on injured reserve after breaking his ankle in Week 8 last season. Prior to his injury he was turning a few heads with his kickoff returns and his speed. So we may see him in the mix in 2007.

I think with the success of the Dallas running game in 2006 it would be ideal to keep the 2 back system intact. In fact, Jerry Jones was quoted saying, "It’s likely that we’ll be going with the running back group we ended the season with," Jones said. "Hopefully we can have (Tyson) Thompson there that could give us a third back." I would love to see this happen. I think if Barber and Jones only improve during the off-season, they will be unstoppable together next season. It will all come down to how they handle the situation. If Jones accepts Barber gets most of the TDs, and Barber accepts that Jones is the starter, then its smooth sailing ahead; but if not, we will have ourselves a Texas-size running back controversy.
