    Having tried a couple different ideas to fix its “Monday Night Football” broadcasting team, ESPN seems ready to throw money at the problem. A lot of money. Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports reported that ESPN was preparing an offer to make CBS’ Tony Romo the highest-paid sports broadcaster in history. McCarthy said the offer would be between $10 million and $14 million annually to attempt to lure him from CBS. That report broke the same day Romo was calling the Houston Texans-Kansas City Chiefs playoff game for CBS. Andrew Marchand of the New York Post also reported Sunday that...

    ...[He's] given Jim Nantz, who’s been at the network since 1985, a new energy, a new vigor. “I’ve heard a lot of people say that,” Nantz told me this week. “It’s probably true. … I definitely feel like I’m trying to match up with Tony’s enthusiasm.” “I gotta be honest,” said Tracy Wolfson, the crew’s sideline reporter. “I felt reinvigorated going down the stretch of the season.” Romo’s not just an announcer. He’s an energy drink. It’s not just Romo’s thirst for football that has changed the CBS crew. As Wolfson notes, Romo’s hiring allowed a rare reset for a...

    If that hit on quarterback Tony Romo’s back looked bad, there’s a good reason for it. It was bad. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Romo is expected to miss 6-10 weeks with a broken bone in his back. The team will be announcing the injury; it’s unclear whether the team will put a duration on the absence.

    Here's what the oddsmakers at had to say about setting the spread for the Carolina at Dallas contest, which opened at Cowboys -1 with a total of 47:From a pure power ratings perspective, Carolina should be favored in this matchup. But given that it's the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day with Romo back on the field, we had to open the home squad as short chalk. The country will be watching and the Cowboys are still America's team. We'll see how the action develops for the game over the course of the week, but it's already clear that while the...

    Dez Bryant kept going after Dallas cornerback Tyler Patmon in a heated training camp skirmish that didn't end until quarterback Tony Romo finally stepped in and calmed his star receiver. Bryant, 26, who has a history of sideline antics that include screaming at coaches and teammates, appeared to take a swing at Patmon after the two tangled during a play in 11-on-11 work late in practice Sunday. The incident started when Patmon jarred Bryant's helmet loose during a play and Bryant responded by yanking off Patmon's helmet. Patmon, 24, threw a punch and backed away, and Bryant came back with...

    The Dallas Cowboys needed quarterback Tony Romo to come up big against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. Instead, he threw three interceptions, including a crucial fourth-quarter pick that contributed to the Cowboys' season-ending loss. After the latest down moment in Romo's inconsistent career, I think it's time for Dallas to move on; it's time for the Cowboys to cut ties with Romo. Romo's one of those guys who seems to do really well when it doesn't count, but when it counts, he doesn't get the job done. It's not because he's not smart; it's not because he's not athletic;...

    Jerry, Jerry, Jerry. Don't you know that what you do in secret will come out in the light? Jerry Jones was caught on amateur video, and audio, speaking about former Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells and college quarterback turning NFL pro Tim Tebow. But Jerry wasn't just talking - he was laughing and joking with a mouth that flowed with obscenities. "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks." ~ Luke 6:45 Jerry said "Romo was a miracle ... he almost never got in ... Tebow would never hit the field."

    In a growing feud that threatens to split apart the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, quarterback Tony Romo revealed yesterday that wide receiver Terrell Owens likes to wear women’s underwear. “He’s a real sucker for lacy things. You know, thongs, fishnet stockings, garter belts. He was wearing some when we lost to Pittsburgh, but not when we beat up on the Giants,” Romo said yesterday following practice. “I really think he just needs to get back to being a man for this team to continue to win.”

    Irving, TX—Now that the election has been declared over by the mainstream media, many sports stars are preparing to share their wealth during an Obama administration. Over the last couple of days, the media has moved a couple of more states in Obama’s direction declaring a victory for the Democrat. With the election over, it’s clear that Obama will begin to implement his new wealth redistribution plan. According to the Obama camp, the richest Americans must go. Sports stars “have a negative impact on Americans that simply can’t reach that type of success.”

Tom Brady, down and out for the season. Peyton Manning, looking feeble and lost.

    Tony Romo Didn't Impress New Flame Jessica Simpson NEW YORK (CBS) ― You could say that Jessica Simpson wasn't a good luck charm for Dallas Cowboy star Tony Romo. Simpson, Romo's new girlfriend, was sitting in a luxury box with Romo's parents rooting for her man while wearing a pink Dallas Cowboy's jersey with his number (#9) on it. Romo, whose ex- girlfriend is Carrie Underwood, played terribly in their final home game before the playoffs, a 10-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Romo was 13-of-36, for 214 yards, with a career-low passer rating of 22.2. Ironically, Romo's worst rating...

    On the wall behind the bar at Fred's -- the self-proclaimed home of the world's best burger -- Tony Romo and Brett Favre get equal billing. A signed Romo jersey hangs in a frame on one side, a big picture of a young Favre on the other. Most weeks, there's no conflict in this division of loyalties. Residents can root for Romo, the local kid who grew up to be quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, and still be loyal to Favre and the Green Bay Packers. But this week, an agonizing choice will have to be made. When the Packers...
