Sweet!!!

Thank God Herm got rid of Medlock and didn't wait until "he adjusted to the game". A kicker is what he is.

And this guy Rayner can do it for us in late in the big games. This is going to change the outcome of a few more games than anyone expected.

One of the best things about him is he has and can kick in terrible weather conditions!

That's right... He came from Green Bay. Right on.

He's got a leg on kick-offs too.

Last I heard, the Falcons were in talks about bringing him back. (I think it was the Falcons).

...And the accolades just keep rolling in; next the analysts will actually start giving them some credit.

We dont need ESPN to give us any rep we get it all through players of the week. That just means we are doin good where it matters on the field.

And he made some field goals last week... Damn. I wonder if he is a grandpa yet. :lol:

BTW, did anybody see the replay of the punter running the fake punt for a first down? That was pretty cool. Romo's scramble off of the bad snap was crazy as well.

All of the TV sportsfigures were giddy about that Romo run. I was hearing alot about how it was the "greatest four yard gain, of all time". Funny. All of those guys look old enough to have seen Barry Sanders play, to me.

:lol: That Romo scramble was crazy, though. I give him props for how he's played so far. I wasn't sold on Romo at the beginning of the season but now I think he is really developing into one of the league's better QB's.

Toally agree. I hate the Cowboys, but can't deny that Romo is earning alot of the hype he has been recieving.

He is the Dbowe of Dallas.

He brings a lot of positive emotion to the team.

I felt so bad for him last year when he dropped the extra point!

True. we have had players get recognition so it's only a matter of time till the whole team does also.

True, he's no Barry Sanders, but he is a play maker.
