Will Americas Team Win Today?

I have been spot on during the playoffs except for the Green Bay game which was a wagering loss, but it gave me hope the playoffs were not going to be as bad as the initial three Wild Card games we had to endure.

This weeks spotlight game is Dallas at Minnesota.  The Vikes and their 40 year old QB with all kinds of playoff experience meet the hottest team other than San Diego (which means whales vagina) in Dallas. Tony Romo has essentially been playing playoff football for a month and he and his teammates have come away with an A grade.

Since the Cowboys’ loss at home Dec 13 against the Chargers 20-17 they have reeled off 4 straight wins against the likes of @ New Orleans, twice against PhilLY (who at the time many thought were the NFC favorites) and lowly Washington. Its not that they won, but how they won. They have outscored their opponents 89-31 over this span including back to back shutouts which is the first time they have done so in franchise history.  They won for the first time since Nov 1st by scoring more than 26 points so although on paper they have have looked solid their offense is still a little suspect. That being said who needs offense when you have a defense only giving up an average of a little more than 15 points per game.

The Vikings defense was getting riddled late in the year by the likes of Chicago, ‘Zona and Carolina,  but still have similar overall D stats to the ‘Boys. What we have here is a game where the defenses will be the talk of the game and whoever doesn’t turn the ball over will be the victors. I know novel concept, but here is the difference. Dallas has issues on the road and Minnesota is 8-0 at home. The most points Dallas scored on the road was 31 game 1 at Tampa and their next highest was 26 in mid-October in OT against KC.  Not exactly a juggernaut.

Farve is playing what quite possibly could be his last game and if so he and Kurt Warner will be giving us speeches 5 years from now in Canton.  Brett needs to get rid of the ball quickly and hope his O-line gives him the 3 step drop time needed to carve out some yards so AP can then provide a solid runnig game and force Dallas to respect the rush. Remember this, Dallas has not played a team with a serious running game since New Orleans and Brees threw 45 times so the rush was not in play and only 2 teams in the NFL who are in the top 10 in rushing (Carolina and Saints). Yes they beat them but we still haven’t seen the defense go up against a team like the Vikings on the road and win.

I am betting the Vikings to cover -2 1/2

Eli’s Locker Room Note

This little message was allegedly left by New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning after their week 2 victory over the Cowboys in the new Cowboys Stadium. The message was found on a concrete slab in the visitor’s locker room and is pretty ballsy if it’s actually Manning’s real John Hancock. Is there a chance Eli isn’t the stick in the mud he appears to be on a daily basis?

T.O. Hatin Via Twitter

Terrell Owens decided to take to his Twitter account this weekend and share a thought about his former quarterback Tony Romo. Terrell’s new team the Buffalo Bills won on Sunday against the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then the Cowboys lost at home to the Giants so Owens tweeted what was on his mind. “Dallas just found out they had a T.R. problem not a T.O. problem !!” This was an obvious back handed comment considering Romo went 13 for 29 and threw three interceptions in the loss. I think it’s safe to say T.O. doesn’t love his ex-quarterback anymore.

Cowboys Fans Party Hard

Over 105,000 people attended the Cowboys first home game in the new Cowboys Stadium last night and watched Tony Romo throw away the game to the rival New York Giants. Apparently a lot of the fans who attended the game got their drink on in a serious way because 41 people were in Arlington jail at 7 AM this morning after being arrested for public intoxication. There could have been even more people arrested at the game if they bonded out of jail between game time and 6 AM Monday. It sounds like Jerry’s new palace with all the party rooms, fancy art, and mega video board was a complete hit so now all he needs to do is find a quarterback who won’t keep losing games for his beloved team.

Romo Has a New Flame

I’m sure we all know by now that Tony Romo broke up with Jessica Simpson recently, but do any of you know who he is dating now?
According to reports from CelebTV.com the Dallas Cowboys quarterback is kicking it with Candice Crawford the former Miss Missouri. Miss Crawford is a Dallas TV sports reporter, how convenient, and hosts the weekend television show for the Cowboys. She might not have the same flotation devices as Jessica, but being the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys comes with some definite perks.

Tony Romo Expert Cougar Hunter

It has only been a week or so since Cowboys fans hopes for a good season were lifted exponentially due to Tony Romo breaking things off with Jessica Simpson. I still think the reason the separation occurred was because Romo refused to have any part of the Ken and Barbie themed birthday party Simpson had scheduled the day after Romo called it quits. Either way it didn’t take long for Romo to move on because whispers out of Texas suggest Romo hooked up with 43 year-old “Blame It on Rio” actress Michelle Johnson the very next night after giving Jessica the boot. I think it might be safe to say Romo is a boob man whether they are real or store bought based on his selection of the female race.

Cowboys Video Wall Gaming Experience

Have you ever had the pleasure of playing Xbox 360 or PS3 on a nice 60 inch LCD television? The visual is stunning, but I bet it doesn’t hold a candle to playing on the 72×160 foot LED video wall in the new Cowboys Stadium. It would be so nice to have one of these at home, but the problem is it wouldn’t even fit in mine. Check out this video for a sample of every gamers dream.

Tony Romo Is Loved

The National Enquirer is reporting Jessica Simpson recently gave boyfriend Tony Romo a $100,000 speedboat for his birthday! Call me stupid, but where in the blue hell is Jessica getting $100,000 to drop on such a luxurious gift? Well, Jessica was able to scrounge up the cheddar somehow and Romo was quite pleased with the custom-made piece of machinery. I wonder if Romo now feels obligated to return the favor and propose to Jessica?
