Romo and Williams back on same page?
Right now the Dallas Cowboys are riding high after winning perhaps the biggest game of the season against their hated division rival Philadelphia Eagles. With a win over Philly the Cowboys are now in first place in the very competitive NFC East division and are officially back in the title contender conversation.
Before this game against the Eagles there was a lot of talk about the chemistry between vocal wide receiver Roy Williams and quarterback Tony Romo which reminded all of us of all the trouble the Cowboys had last season with controversial wideout Terrell Owens. Williams said that Romo and him were nowhere near on the same page and it just seemed like the same old story in Dallas, but that changed after the win over Philly as the two hooked up six times for 70 yards.
The Cowboys were just starting to get things together with their talented offense as young wide receiver Miles Austin quickly emerged as the go to guy for Tony Romo. This could be the main reason for Williams not being happy in Dallas, but like I said after week nine's win over the Eagles things might start to change with Williams attitude towards his quarterback.
At the beginning of the season the Dallas Cowboys were as far from a sure bet as a team could be with a promising young football team. They struggled on both sides of the football and looked like they were head for another disappointing season without a playoff appearance. A few seasons ago the Cowboys were a hot commodity, but at the start of this season it was hard to even see the Cowboys pulling out easy games against teams like the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fortunately things turned around for Dallas and they haven't looked back since as they are now the favorites to win the NFC East and finally get back into the playoffs. There is still a ways to go in the season, but things are really looking up in Dallas as they have a lot of momentum moving forward.
