    The real question is - can Romo duplicate the butt fumble?

    Re: Around the League

    Seeing reports now that after agreeing to a deal...Moore chose to retire instead.

    My initial reaction is to laugh, but, that's happened to us before too. Guess his heart just wasn't in it. Or not enough money.

    Reading that he is financially secure and couldn't bear to get on a plane and leave his family.

    That's crazy, why has he been doing the rounds and working out for teams? Maybe if it wasn't the Cowboys he'd think differently but who knows.

    In deciding to retire, Moore passed up $2 million in 2013. He was to receive a $500,000 signing bonus, a base salary of $1.25 million, which was fully guaranteed, and a $250,000 play time bonus in his one-year contract.

    Re: Around the League

    Quick rookie WR notes from what I've read:

    * Austin (STL) and Hopkins (HOU) are on-track to start

    * The trio of Dobson (NE), Thompkins and Boyce are doing well (maybe b/c there no other options really) with Thompkins looking like the best of them.

    * Keenan Allen (SD) is struggling with getting the offense down

    * Patton (SF) has a dislocated finger

    * Patterson (MIN) is impressive with PR/KR duties but not yet at WR

    * Woods (BUF) generally looks good


    Nothing on Hunter (TEN), Wheaton (PIT) or Rogers (BUF).

    Those two (and Quntion Patton) were the only ones I was really interested in. Austin and Hopkins were long gone by the time we drafted. And I doubt Patton is going to start this year (though he may have secured the #3 job here).

    It is very difficult for a rookie wrs to make an impact. They usually have to be so physically gifted that it overcomes the lack of technique required at the NFL level. What worked in college won't work in the NFL. Route running has to be precise and crisp. It is very hard to get separation in the NFL.

    Apparently, Markus Wheaton has done well snagging deep passes and is quite fast.

    That is all I have really heard about him though.

    I heard Hopkins is inline to not only start but be impressive in doing so. I think he fell into a really good situation in Houston.

    Bears announced CB Kelvin Hayden tore his hamstring and is out for the year. What's going on here?

    Let's keep out fingers crossed the angry ACL god doesn't decide to strike any of our players on Thurs.

    Lots of opportunities for younger players to step up.
