Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss at least three weeks of offseason workouts after a procedure to remove a cyst from his back.
Tony Romo pointed here and there, showing receiver Dez Bryant the best way to use a block on the first day of offseason practice.
Undrafted rookies' disappointment can be offset by a significant consolation prize. They have some say in which team they join. With the help of a sharp agent, they can navigate the frenzied post-draft signing period to find the best possible opportunity to eventually make a team's 53-man roster — and earn the accompanying six-figure contract.
Joe Flacco's impeccable timing earned him the richest contract for a quarterback in NFL history. That doesn't mean he's the game's best QB.
Flacco, it seems, is regarded as a guy who is just kind of there. He wouldn't be on anybody's bottom 10 list. Yet few people, if any, seem to regard him among the NFL's elite quarterbacks. Maybe it is time to change that thinking. To put him in the top five would be absurd. To put him in the next five seems more than reasonable.
A slight smile finally brightened Jim Haslett's hardened countenance after midnight Monday morning. His wife, Beth, and daughter, Kelsey, walked alongside him up the ramp that leads from the Washington Redskins' locker room out of FedEx Field.
As a wideout, Santana Moss wants Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III to throw the ball as much as possible, of course, preferably in his direction.
Tony Romo sat alone on the Dallas bench, his stare frozen at the ground on a cold night in Washington.
Not until Rob Jackson wrapped his hands around another Tony Romo "oops" Sunday night could Washington Redskins fans begin to savor the moment.
When Rob Jackson picked off Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and sealed the Washington Redskins' NFC East-clinching victory Sunday night, the linebacker didn't immediately grasp the magnitude of his accomplishment.
When the final seconds ticked off the clock Sunday night and the Washington Redskins had vanquished their rival to complete one of the greatest turnarounds in NFL history, Reed Doughty sprinted onto the field. He jumped and pumped his fist and thrust his helmet into the air.
The Washington Redskins are going to the playoffs. As unbelievable as that possibility seemed two months ago, they punched their ticket Sunday night by beating the Dallas Cowboys 28-18 to win the NFC East.
The Dallas Cowboys have been here before. Well, not exactly here as in FedEx Field against the Washington Redskins in the NFC East championship game on Sunday night, but the Cowboys are well-versed in winner-take-division season finales.
Five questions as the Redskins host the Cowboys on Sunday night, with the NFC East title in the balance.
The quarterback position is the most exalted in American sports. No other attracts such attention, scrutiny and adulation. It's a function of football's popularity and the nature of the game. The quarterback handles the ball on every play. His decision-making and execution directly correlate to his team's success.
"The older you get, you develop that a little bit as a quarterback," Romo said. "If you do some good things in the past that allow you to show, then you can have a little more of that. That's part of the growth that takes shape."
"I'm here. I'm always at the facility," said Romo, speaking publicly for the first time since signing a six-year, $108 million extension with more guaranteed money ($55 million) than Super Bowl winner Joe Flacco of Baltimore. "If you talk to any of the coaches or anybody I'm around, I've been a gym rat since I've been here."
