There is something different about these Cowboys.... and I like it!

Has Tony Romo finally changed his tune? With great team history comes great responsibility and it looks like Romo is finally ready to bring the Cowboys to the big dance. Yes he had a small bump in the road with that INT, but Romo came back and threw 3 TDs, throwing for a near flawless 22/29 passing attempt.

On offense, Dallas is stacked on key positions. DeMarco Murray's health will be the key to how far the Cowboys will go in the playoffs. Murray can be relied on giving the Cowboys a bruising running game, throw in a few snaps to Felix "Glass" Jones for a quick burst and Dallas has a potent 1-2 punch in their backfield.

The lost of Laurent Robinson was a non-factor, Kevin Ogletree saw to that. Infact, you might want to pick him up in your Fantasy League. Even Dez "Hit My Mama" Bryant came through with 4 catches for 85 yards, not to shabby. Myles Austin is starting to look like his old self before the injury and the only weakness right now is at the TE position were Jason Witten is playing injured.

 All-in-all the Cowboys offense played great and seem to control New York's vaunted defense throughout the game. Romo showed the leadership that I wanted to see from him and not the "Favrevian" instincts that have plagued him in the past. But again, Murray will be the key to keeping the Dallas offense at close to the top of the offensive leaderboard.

The defense also played good, the pass defense seems to be greatly improved. Demarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher played well and Sean Lee was making tackles all over the field. You have to give JJ some credit for improving his pass defense with a top Rookie prospect and signing a veteran like Brandon Carr. Even the young stable of CBs played rather well.

This young season looks bright and promising, but it's only one game. A game that was played with a Giants team without the services of Brandon Jacobs and Mario Manningham (Victor Cruz also had some easy passes dropped) on offense. Officiated by 1st timers as guest referees. The Giants defensive line also didn't "bring the pain", it felt like they could turn it up a notch. But for some reason last night, Romo was able to use his feet to his advantage.

 This season, I am ready to enjoy what could possibly become one of Dallas Cowboys most memorable season's.... it's time to finally Cowboy Up!
