Cover Two Podcast: Romo’s guts and glory

People love ‘em and people hate ‘em, but when you play quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, you’re one of the most scrutinized players in the NFL. Tony Romo has been picked apart for years, but right now the pickings are good.

Romo’s two clutch performances with a broken rib and punctured lung have shown guts and focus, and on the Cover Two Podcast we discuss how that has impacted a locker room in need of a galvanizing element. It’s not just Romo that’s keeping Dallas in games. Tune in to find out why the Cowboys could be serious playoff contenders and how they boast one of the game’s rising stars.

Co-host Bucky Brooks believes the two losses the Eagles have suffered are symptomatic of what’s to come, in part, because quarterback Michael Vick is showing some negative tendencies he developed when he played for the Falcons. I expected Philadelphia to be hot and cold early on before bringing things together, so I explain why inconsistencies come as no surprise.

Also, what’s going on with the Falcons and Steelers? They still seem capable of being Super Bowl contenders, but they’ve got some serious holes to patch if they even want to make it to the playoffs.

On the issue of concerns stemming from not fulfilling preseason expectations, we discuss why the Rams are in serious trouble. All you really have to do is look at their next four games to understand why matching last season’s seven-win total might be asking a bit much. Will Steven Jackson have anything left when/if the Rams ever get over the hump? It would be a shame if he doesn’t.

We also hand out the award to the Biggest Virginia Tech Complainer of the Week: Vick or Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall?
