07:11 AM ET 09.03 | Conventional wisdom holds that the Cowboys will go just about as far as Tony Romo takes them, which he hints now comes with a bonus. [Romo] tells FOXSportsSouthwest.com that he's "discovered something that is going to be really special" with a change in his throwing mechanics as he prepares for the 2013 season. "I don't want to get into all the details of it," Romo recently revealed. ... "But I really think it can be a positive change." The "change" is highly subtle and involves arm angles and release points. Romo first shared the information with FOXSportsSouthwest.com in Oxnard, Calif., in early August when he took to the training camp field a full two hours ahead of schedule for a private workout. He came away from that experimental session beaming.

I discovered "something special" this weekend too. That's why I'm going to the doctor today.

Sorry to hear that Wawa..are you going to change to Woo-woo?? Anyway, it's more about how far the offensive line is going to take them than anything else. Their line reminds me of a tricycle with 2 wheels.

That Romo... Really is a student of the game.

Quite the brain trust in Dallas these days. First Jerry claims to have a 40 year old brain and now Romo claims to have the knowledge of a first string QB. Dallas just might go as far as 8-8 this year.

You really should stay away from $kank$ R Us.

Been playing professional football for 7 or 8 years you should have the mechanics worked out long ago.

Judging from my limited viewing of them in the preseason... Plenty.




8-8

Try doing something for your thinking mechanics.

"If I don't throw an interception or fumble, we have a better chance to win. EUREKA!!"

A change in Romo's throwing motion won't fix his biggest flaw... The inability to show up in big games and win them. Look for another 8-8 season and no playoffs again Cowgirl fans.

First the cyst removal and now this top secret top 2 hour training. Next he will be lacing his shoes differently.

Finding that "something special" in practice is one thing. Using it during a game is a different deal.

Oxnard = the land of fairy dust with elves who wear funny little hats and grant wishes to underperforming NFL QBs. It's a magic land, folks.

...Or three seconds in the pocket to find a receiver?

Nice one, Otis. Remember, you need to check yourself back into the cell when you get that drunk. The key is hanging on the wall, as usual.
