Tony Romo-Will He Remain A Dallas Cowboy?

When I began to research on Tony Romo’s future, I learned so much more. Will he stay with the Dallas Cowboys? Tony Romo is an incredible quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, but since Dak Prescott- will be the starting quarterback for 2017, he may or may not want to leave the team. Many believe that Tony Romo will lead the Dallas Cowboys to a Super bowl win, before he retires. All ears, are waiting to hear whether or not, he will stay with the Dallas Cowboys, or is traded to the Houston Texans or the Kansas City Chiefs, among other teams.

Tony Romo began his football career, at Burlington High School in Wisconsin. He then went onto college at Eastern Illinois University, where he played exceedingly and won many awards as a quarterback.

He began his professional career, with the Dallas Cowboys in 2003, where he had great plays. in 2004, he became a backup for starter Drew Bledsoe. Since becoming part the Dallas Cowboys team, he has received many awards for touchdowns, and percentage leads. He is best known for have the most passing attempts and a high quarterback ratings, along with many yards.

Tony Romo is a great asset to the Dallas Cowboys, because he has not played anywhere else. He has spent his entire career with Dallas, so whether or not he will be traded or whether he stays- he will continue to create touchdown passes, attempts, and passing yards for the NFL franchise. In 2012, he became the first in NFL history, to have over 300 passing yards, and in 2013, he had the most passing yards of 506, against the Denver Broncos.

Jerry Jones, the Dallas Cowboys owner, believes in Tony Romo. He is not giving out any indication, that he will be trading Romo, or implying that he will stay, but he is still speaking positive about the veteran quarterback. Tony Romo has three seasons left in his contract, and he has suffered a back injury, so when he returned after he got better, he served under Dak Prescott. Many of the sports announcers and fans, don’t know whether or not Tony Romo future lies. Tony Romo is a great quarterback, who has led the Dallas Cowboys to winning many football games. With his salary cap being, 24.7 million, the team is facing a financial crunch.

Everyone is getting excited about the 2017 football season, after just watching the
Super bowl a few weeks ago, without the Dallas Cowboys being a part of it. Tony Romo’s continues to be a contender to lead Dallas to a future championship. He is expected to still be a part of the Dallas Cowboys when the season starts, to determine whether or not he will stay, or discuss his future with management. There is chatter among many teams, who would love to have him become the quarterback for their teams in the NFL, but for now- no one knows. Even with his recent injury, whether he stays with the Dallas Cowboys, remains to be seen

Why Ezekiel Elliot is the Next Great NFL Running Back

Ezekiel Elliot a Force To Be Reckoned With 

If you are a fan of football I am pretty sure you have heard the name Ezekiel Elliot a lot. All good things of course.

Ezekiel Elliott aka Zeke is an American football running back for the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League. At just 21 years old he stands at 6’1″ weighing in at 225 pounds. But his size sure doesn’t seem to slow him down, and even if it did, his mass could drag him (and anyone else) along to get where he is trying to go.

Now before I get into all his current amazingness (is that a word?) let me start with high school. When someone is a good athlete, they are usually great in every sport. That is this kid all the way.

In high school Elliott attended John Burroughs School in Ladue, Missouri. He was a star in not only football, but also basketball and track, and he even played baseball.

While in highschool he played as a running back for the John Burroughs Bombers football team, and as a junior in 2012, he was named the St. Louis Post dispatch offensive player of the year after rushing an astonishing 1,802 yards, 34 touchdowns, and receiving 23 passes for 401 yards. Senior year, he had 3,061 all-purpose yards and 50 touchdowns, including 2,155 rushing yards and 40 rushing touchdowns.

Also a natural track & field athlete, Elliott was a state qualifier in sprinting and hurdling events. In high school he won four state championships at the Missouri Class 3 state championships.

Now let me touch down a little bit on his college football career. Elliot attended Ohio State University starting 2013, and in the 2014 season he was named the Offensive MVP of both the 2015 Sugar Bowl and the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

His success at the end of the 2014 season made him a front-runner for the 2015 Heisman Trophy. After his successful season, 1,672 yards and 19 touchdowns, Elliott was named the 2015 Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year and was also 2015 Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year.

Now tell me this kid wasn’t born to be great.

He decided to skip his senior year in college and wanted to jump into the draft. Amazingly, but not surprisingly, Elliott was selected 4th overall by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2016 NFL draft on April 28, 2016. On May 18, 2016, Elliott signed his four-year rookie contract reportedly worth $24.9 million with a $16.3 million signing bonus. Well deserved as I am sure most everyone has either seen or heard.

His teammates are shocked and amazed by his talent. A few, including Dez, believe he will not only recieve rookie of the year, but will also shatter records.

In just six short games, this young man has rushed 703 yards. He is a beast and will let nothing get in his way. I feel sorry for the poor guys who do get in the way of that bulldozer. That is 225 pounds of all dedication and strength. I am looking forward to watching this young man this season and in many more seasons.

Although his Professional career has just started, it has already taken off and he is well known and highly spoken of. He is a force to be reckoned with.
