  • In fact, the DMN blog has a couple of posts today about how Newman has called out the defensive scheme and the numbers bear out that his criticism is unwarranted.

    Newman is coming across as a guy that is not a team leader, but a little ***** that shoots off his mouth before he thinks.

    Again, don't you think a guy needs to do something before he shoots off his mouth like he's Ray Lewis?

    I think the fact that he came out with a quote the next day praising Romo tells you that he realized that he went too far.

      And his words were twisted...he said that the media had an affect on him not that his relationship affected his play.

      Your taking the media seriously here imo.
      Dude, did you watch the video?

        He took stabs at the media and at Stewart....not Romo or Wade imo....but i guess you could see it the other way.

          yes. Do you honestly think that Newman thinks Tony Romo doesn't work hard enough to win? Not for one second do I believe that.

            I watched the video, and when he was speaking he didn't seem like he was just free flowing, off the cuff. That was my impression, and up for interpretation.

            Newman is considered one of the best corners in the game when healthy by many. What more does he need to do on the field to earn your respect?

            I think he came back praising him because he knew the media was focused on making a controversy out of it.

              Could you quote the exact part(s) that has you so upset? I don't really see what's got you so boiling, I think your reading too much into this.

                • Newman's reply: "I think that with the situation Tony was in, I think that kind of maybe hurt him a little bit - being a first-year starter, then you have the limelight with his girlfriend and situations of that nature. It's going to take away from him being a quarterback, being a successful quarterback. He won 13 games and everything was perfect, but now after this past season, it was, 'Is he doing enough for the team? Is he working hard enough? You know, he's got this girlfriend, so ...' I think that once he inherited the starting quarterback job and his relationship got into the national media attention, I think that that was something that definitely hurt and took away from Tony Romo being a great quarterback."

                  That is pretty clear to me. Tony didn't work hard enough because he's enjoying the limelight too much with his celebrity girlfriend.

                  The issue is not whether he is right or not. I don't agree with the facts, but I could understand if someone has that opinion.

                  What is wrong is that you just don't do that to a teammate. If you were a future HOFer, you could get away with that, but a guy like Newman that can't stay healthy and has a ways to go to earn his big new contract, needs to keep his mouth shut and work.

You guys had the lead at throughout so something was working until the wheels came off? How do you know Romo made the right read on that play? What if like I pmed you or was it D-unit, that he just disgarded his read and just throw it to someone he thought was open? Didn't TO get mad because he was wide open? I actually remember watching that game, and they showed TO flip out on someone because he was open. This was the Steelers game I am talking about. What did the position coaches upstars tell Jason G.? Did they tell him to run the play because of prior success? It may be Garrett's fault, and if it is, then you're right, but my point is that in football there is always other variables. And sadly, fans are not privy to all of that stuff, but the weird thing is, in the fan culture of football, bashing or praising players and coaches without having ALL the information is the norm. In my opinion it's weird, and interesting at the same time.
                    I would like to add to the rest of our conversation. You made a comment towards a fellow Giant fan voicing that "how do you know that it's not the guys upstairs" ect. As far as I'm aware the guys upstairs in Dallas didn't change. Sparano was the reason for Garrett's success....when he left Garrett was lost. Now we had a few new positional coaches but they were down on the field not up in the box. Hopefully you know what I'm getting at.

                      Good call on Sparano. My biggest gripe with the offseason is keeping Garrett.

                      I wouldn't have kept Wade, but he's got one more year and Jerry didn't want to change the head guy all too often. Fair enough. I don't agree, but I see why.

                      Getting rid of T.O. time will tell. I wouldn't have done it because of the cap hit, but he was getting old and demands the ball too much. We'll see what happens, but it's not that bad a move when you still have Tony, Witten, and other pieces of the offense.

                      Henry for Kitna was a bad move, but how many games will be lost because of it? It's not a team killer.

                      But keeping Garrett was just terrible. With all the talent at his fingertips he still came up with a stagnant gameplan. His routes had no variation. It's like either all receivers go deep, or they do the same posts. He got too streaky with the run. At times he'd completely abandon it, and then at times he'd lean on it too hard. Then there's the playcalling. I have no idea how many times I called Garrett's plays myself last year. Too often I called a right toss on 3rd and 2. Too often I saw opposing team captains fly to where the ball will be like they guessed the playbook on Tecmo Bowl. Garrett IMO hurts the team way too much to stick around. I know you don't change coordinators all willy nily, but his lack of variation was too painful last season. Turrible turrible.

                      But of course that's why I'm a fan and not in the front office. I'd like to think that I'm a football expert, but me getting weekly picks right is alot different from building a team. So for all we know Garrett could become Tom Moore next year.

                      • Has anyone heard this rumor about signing Lucas as well as trading Ellis?


                        Cowboys close to signing Lucas?
                        Cowboys on the Verge of signing Veteran CB

                        There's some talk that Ken Lucas is close to a deal with the Cowboys?

                        Anybody hearing about this?

                        Mike Francesa and Christopher "Mad Dog" Russo. from Mad dog sports is saying that the Cowboys will sign Lucas as a Starter' Nickel.

                        They also have said that the Cowboys are quietly shopping Greg Ellis for picks or a package with picks to gain a high pick.

                        The one deal that they said would work for the Cowboys would be with the Detroit Lions for pick #33.

                        • I like shopping Ellis, but only for the right price. Who would they take with the picks they get? He's still a serviceable pass rusher so they better get someone that can contribute to replace someone like that. The only reason why I'm in favor of getting rid of him is to see what Spencer can do. He's shown some nice flashes here and there, but I feel that Ellis kind of robs him of reps sometimes because it's hard not to start a guy like Ellis. I wouldn't mind Spencer getting more grooming for one more year, but I think that the microwave society the NFL is demands that Spencer do something now. Especially with Ware on the other side. Ware has been phenomenal in his short time here, and that only puts more pressure on Spencer to succeed.

                          With Ellis gone then Spencer can learn more on the field, and get more productive. I think Spencer is a guy that needs more on field time to get into a "groove." Maybe if he gets the whole season to start he'd rack up more sacks and TFls as the season goes along. It's hard to get rid of a guy that'll give you 8-12 sacks guaranteed in Ellis though. That's why I think if they trade him it better be for the right guy. The pick they get better go towards someone who can develop into something, and not a guy who is a project.

                          • Only an idiot would give up #33 overall for Ellis. Highway robbery.

                              I was thinking 51 and Ellis for 33.

                              maybe add one 4th

                                Lol I'm pretty sure we would be using Ellis and a mid round pick to acquire 33, he would be just used in a package.
