    Cowboys reach 6-yr/$67.5 deal with Tony Romo

    Wow. Kid got paid.

    Reported as the richest contract in Cowboy franchise history.

    He's dating Sophia Bush too.

    I wouldn't kick her outta bed for eating crackers.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Google pictures is your friend.

    She was married to Chad Michael Murray for 5 months... that means she is crazy. Excellent g/f material. Just keep the locksmith on speed dial in preparation for the inevitable.

    I'll take this as further proof that the Carson Palmer deal is the biggest steal in the NFL. The T.J. Houshmandzadeh contract is a big steal, too.

    Imagine the money they would have saved had they extended him in the off-season... or even earlier on this year instead of waiting so long. I like him though, he should be good enough not to make it look like a bad move.

    Unless he throws 5 interceptions in a game a few more times.

    To me, the fact that he stayed in the game and led them to the winning drive says a lot more about him than the turnovers.

    Once the Texas gave an unproven QB (Schaub) a huge deal ($8M/yr), the Cowboys were going to have to pay up at some point. Jerry just waited a few games to see what the kid could do before paying up.

    Here's how the QB contracts rate:
    Peyton Manning, IND: 7 years, $99.2 Million (AAV: $14.17 Million; Signed in 2004)
    Carson Palmer, CIN: 9 years, $118.75 Million (AAV: $13.19 Million; Signed in 2005)
    Tony Romo, DAL: 6 years, $67.5 Million (AAV: $11.25 Million; Signed in 2007)
    Marc Bulger, STL: 6 years, $65 Million (AAV: $10.83 Million; Signed in 2007)
    JaMarcus Russell, OAK: 6 years, $61 Million (AAV: $10.17 Million; Signed in 2007)
    Tom Brady, NE: 6 years, $60 Million (AAV: $10 Million;Signed in 2005)
    Drew Brees, NO: 6 years, $60 Million (AAV: $10 Million; Signed in 2006)
    Brett Favre, GB: 10 years, $100 Million (AAV: $10 Million; Signed in 2001)
    Vince Young, TEN: 6 years, $58 Million (AAV: $9.67 Million; Signed in 2006)
    Donovan McNabb, PHI: 12 years, $115 Million (AAV: $9.58 Million; Signed in 2002)
    Chad Pennington, NYJ: 7 years, $64.2 Million (AAV: $9.17 Million; Signed in 2004)
    Eli Manning, NYG: 6 years, $54 Million; (AAV: $9 Million; Signed in 2004)
    Matt Leinart, ARI: 6 years, $50.8 Million (AAV: $8.47 Million; Signed in 2006)
    Philip Rivers, SD: 6 years, $50.5 Million (AAV: $8.42 Million; Signed in 2004)
    Alex Smith, SF: 6 years, $49.5 Million (AAV: $8.25 Million; Signed in 2005)
    Matt Hasselbeck, SEA: 6 years, $49.4 Million (AAV: $8.23 Million; Signed in 2005)
    Matt Schaub, HOU: 6 years, $48 Million (AAV: $8 Million; Signed in 2007)

    You'd think Tom Brady would be higher on that list...

    Eli's growing on the Giants fans. The team is 6-2, and most of the 'experts' say that they're the best team in the NFC now (even though they lost to the Packers and Cowboys).

    Pennington is a tough guy, but he's got no arm strength anymore ... and he didn't have much to begin with.

    The Giants are 6-2. I mean, I know Eli's not his brother... but who is?

    Still one of my all-time favorite television "moments" is when Cris Carter said he was going to do a "Chad Pennington impression," and proceeded to pull out a squirt gun and squirt Marino.

    What's wrong with Eli?
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
