Cowboys hope for ‘best of Romo’

IRVING — The Tony Romo love is getting greater each day.
Jerry Jones called this season Romo’s finest quarterbacking the Dallas Cowboys after Sunday night’s comeback victory over the New York Giants. Jason Witten followed that up by saying this is as good as he’s seen Romo play.
It’s hard to argue with both at this point in the season.
Romo has a 111.4 quarterback rating, which would be a career best and is the second best in the league behind Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers.

After leaving Nocona as the offensive coordinator to take over at Farwell, first year head coach Danny Brittain had to have been more than excited to see 17 starters returning off a team that made it to the regional semifinals a year ago.

Anybody who’s been paying attention to the Spearman Lynx this season knows it’s no secret how they’ve gone 12 games without a loss — by getting down to basics.

There goes Melvin Gordon, ripping off another long run. And there’s Samaje Perine piling up yards in punishing fashion. Oh, look, here comes Tevin Coleman — and there he goes, sprinting away from a bunch of flailing defenders.
College football teams have been running wild this season, averaging more yards per carry and per game than at any time in recent years. Having game-breakers such as Gordon, Perine and Coleman carrying the ball has helped lead this ground game revolution, but something more is happening.
