Cowboys Vs. Ravens




                                    Vs.



LoneStar

It's been almost eight months since Tony Romo has taken a snap in a game situation, but that will change on Saturday. The Cowboys quarterback, who sat out the team's preseason opener, said he plans to play this week against Baltimore.

Romo hasn't played in a game since undergoing back surgery in December.

"I think you have to play in the preseason," Romo said on Tuesday. "Obviously, some people can't, but I do know from my perspective, this game is not just something where you can show up and think that you can do it. I think it's been proven far too many times that if you take too long of a break or don't get reps under you that you will be exposed in certain areas. I'm a firm believer that you have to play football to get better at football. Football's a way of life. It's not just [a] sometimes thing. It's an all-the-time thing if you're going to be a great player, and I think if you have the opportunity to play, you've got to play."

The playing time against Baltimore will give Romo a chance to get on the same page as passing game coordinator Scott Linehan. The former Lions offensive coordinator will be calling plays for the Cowboys this year.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora believes that Romo will play in a "very limited role" against the Ravens. Romo told La Canfora that there have been no setbacks so far and that the team has 'a plan and we follow that plan and it's continued to pay dividends.'

"If you go through an offseason surgery, you've got to reteach yourself small things," Romo said. "The big things are always there. You've done them for years. It's just a couple things tightened up as far as what you want, and it's been nice to see that."

The Cowboys will need a lot from Romo and the Dallas offense if the team's going to be successful this season. The offense will have to make up for a defense that ranked dead last in the NFL in 2013 and doesn't look to be much improved heading into 2014.

He's supposed to play only 12 downs, I wonder how many will be run plays?

They do something good then they do something bad. When we aren't giving the ball to them, then we change up and get a penalty.

Don't know what you guys think, but Weeden doesn't have it as far as I'm concerned.

Very young team and we knew there would be mistakes. But its scary, because guys who have been with us awhile are making the stupid mistakes.

After Romo to Dez its been terrible, heading out, after all its Sat. night.

Done for the night myself, I can't watch the slaughter any longer.

Take away the mistakes in the 1st Q, and we win the game.

Its only pre-season and a ton of things are going to change before opening day.

Weeden didn't really impress, I felt they kept him in way to long. But he can take a hit, he was getting killed.

I feel the Ravens have a problem also, Flacco sucks. If we had any kind of a decent pass rush we would have shut him out.

First Garrett should be commended for sticking to his game plan. The Cowboys 2-3 defenses faced Flacco and his 1st team most the night.

Then our 3-4 players faced their 2-3 players. But by the 4th quarter, things were equal and we started to kick their ***. We held their first team to something ridiculous. Plus I saw some guys who really want to play football.

I'm glad I stayed to the end, you guys who left missed some good plays.

I just read an article by Fish, covering in depth what you just said. I'm struggling with hanging in there this yr and being disappointed, or moving on.

It just seems like the same story we've heard yr after yr. I hope Garrett can finally break the cycle, or he'll be fired and we'll be starting over again.
