    Yeah and notice how TJ Ducket and Kevin Jones ran right past him up the middle? He's still very inconsistent. He'll make a big play to stick in people's minds, but get man handled on most other plays.

    • There's a guy who does a sports show here in dallas called DFW sports beat named Brady Tinker, not sure if any of you heard of him from doin blogs or what not but he made some good points on his show today...

      One point was how well Romo actually played in between the numbers, Detroit took away TO and the deep ball all game and Romo didnt force the ball to him...When you see how Favre came out firing the ball into double coverage vs us and other qbs get bad habits who throw into double coverage, he seems to always take what the defense gives him...25 completions to Witten and Barber all the while managing to register scoring drives...Romo + Garrett=Beautiful


      Another point was the defense having the mentality that our qb is better then the other teams qb so we will play alot of Nickel and Dime formations and hold the team to 20 points so we will win the game...You would like to think we would attack every game somehow but it seemed like the Washington game and this game, we have sat back and let him pick us apart slowly and let it happen all game...Where as other games with more potent passing attacks we attacked and it worked better

      They also had Ryan Young on and he talked about how the offensive line gets a whole new mentality when Barber steps into the game...They love blocking for him and the offense gets a charge every time he comes into the game

          • I saw our O-line open up some huge holes for JJ that he simply couldn't capitalize on.... He's such a lost cause. Im not sure how he ever produced the way he did his rookie season.

            He started out with some big runs, but the holes for so freakin huge that I could have made atleast 5 yards and that is with my 5.5? speed.

            Barber is far superior to Jones and it pisses me off when they show jones and his baby face on the sidelines or when I read a jones comment like "I wish I could get in a rhythm, but as long as we keep getting W's" -- Its like, come on Julius, you have no rhythm. You're on your way to being someones waste of a FA acquisition. We just need a decent speed guy in the second round to go along with Barber and this offense will be better than it is this year.

            • Quick question for everyone on here.... How likely do you think it is that we resign newman? I love him, as do all of us on here, but does anyone think Jerry might make a strange move and let Newman go somewhere else?

              X-Mas is right around the corner and my girlfriend is about to order me an authentic T New jersey (have to get it customized since they dont sell them) and I'm worried we wont resign him.

              I'd probably still get the Jersey anyways because I will support Newman wherever he goes and he was awesome thus far as a cowboy, but those things do cost around $280 on the 'boys pro shop so Im trying to make sure I wont be pissed at myself later...

              There is no reason for us to let him go, and I would actually hate Jerry for doing it, but it is possible. What are your guys thoughts?

                Newman ain't going nowhere. It's more likely that Jerry will severely overpay him.

                  I hope you're right...

                  any thoughts on why we wouldn't have tried to get an extension done yet? It seems like we are going to have to pay him more by letting him hit the market and receive offers from other teams who are looking to go on a spending spree.


                  Edit -- Also, what Jersey would you guys get. Im thinkin Im going to have to roll with a throw back. They are pretty sick.

                  and does anyone have experience with the sizing on the authentic ones? The come in numbered sizes instead of S/M/L and im not sure how to measure them up. Im 5'9'' and have no clue what size I should get.

                    If the throwbacks are the ones with the Stars on the sleeves then yes those are the best ones, only one id want if I bought one...Really need to look into how much for the authentic Barber...what site did you use to check?

                      It was on the cowboys pro shop or the nfl pro shop, I think those are the only places to get authentic customized ones.

                        I think the only reasons to let him go are:
                        1) Money
                        2) Age

                        I honestly don't know if hes staying for sure. Trufant is going to hit the market too I think. Trufant will be turning 27 on Christmas and Newman will be hitting 30 in September of next year.

                        As for jersey type, I absolutely love our blue away jerseys. If you are considering buying authentic you'll probably want to try one on in a store. The sleeves are cuffed and there some elasticity on the sides; near your rib cage. The collar is also kind of tight. So you definitely want to get the sizing right. Wouldn't hurt to see how it'll look on you too. If you decide to not take the authentic jersey route, theres always replithentic jerseys.

                        • NFLshop has a buying guide...which explains the sizing chart...should be on the page where you are buying the jersey...I would look but don't feel like it.

                          • For all the hate that JJ gets...if he was willing to sign a cheaper deal...I would take him back. Is a scat back really going to be that much better after contact? More explosive in the open field? More decisive at the LOS? I really don't see any of this...plus you lose out on a very above-average blocker which I would consider JJ....with a scatback in the backfield and can show your play selection easier...than a versatile back that can catch and block.

                              I wouldn't want a scat back as in a Leon Washington type... Not sure what other on here are hoping for, but when I talk about bringing in a speed guy with either our second 1st rounder (which is probably too high but it depends on who is still around) or our second rounder I am looking for a Slaton type guy. Someone who can handle 10 carries a game and be fine.

                              I hadn't monitored the run blocking that everyone has been relatively critical of all year until the Detroit game and I actually saw some great blocking that JJ didn't take advantage of.

                              Maybe I just caught the o-line on a good day, but I noticed that JJ cannot plant and cut, he sorta just slows down and tries to change direction by shortening his steps to something that almost looks like a stutter step. If he had cutting ability, there was plenty of room for him to hit gaps and make it up to the second level. However, even if JJ did make it to the second level, its not like he could do much. Therein lies his next problem -- on the rare occasion that he does get past the linebackers, he can't make any moves 1 on 1 to get past the safety. The guy cant create anything for himself. He has to have the freakin golden brick road paved for him in order for him to do anything (saints game last year)

                              I just think a Steve Slaton type who has speed and isn't overly fragile (I know people have mentioned tashard choice, but he just doesnt seem to have great playing speed to me. certainly not break away NFL speed) would take advantage of those opportunities.

                                Well screw it...

                                Newman is star in my mind and even if he does leave ill rock his jersey. True boys fans will know whats up haha.

                                I think I'm going to go with the throw back though. I have a Roy throw back which is sick, except I dont like supporting roy so I hardly ever wear it.

                                I discovered I need a size 48(equivalent to a M) or 50(equivalent to a L). I tried on my roomates Authentic LT which was a size 50 and it was a pretty good fit so hopefully the pro shop stops acting *** and lets her actually place an order with the appropriate size.
