Stephen A. Smith is sick of hearing about Tony Romo love

As you may know, Stephen A. Smith will always speak about what’s on his mind. Stephen A. Smith was “sick to his stomach” after reading a quote from Chip Kelly about the Dallas Cowboys.

Said Smith on ESPN:

“I was annoyed when I saw this quote from Chip Kelly. I want to make sure that I preface my comments by saying. I know Tony Romo’s gifted. I know he’s no scrub, considering he was no first-round pick and the expectations were minimal. Tony Romo can ball, no one is making that argument.

“But let me tell you what makes me sick to my stomach about this quote from Chip Kelly. … When is the requirement for winning going to be paramount? How many games has Tony Romo been in that actually count? I am sick and tired of everyone sitting there and kissing Romo’s you know what as if he’s some Super Bowl champion.

“I’m sorry Dallas Cowboys nation, the pathetic fans they are. … Tony Romo is relevant from September through December. Come January and on, there is usually a missing persons report out for him. I’m sick and tired of this Tony Romo love. Can the man stand up and produce in the postseason?”

Romo was voted by the fans as the NFL’s Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week. He won the award for last weeks comeback against the Giants. Romo drove down the field with 89 seconds left in the four quarter on six plays for the winning touchdown.

Do the Eagles need to worry about the Cowboys?

Maybe not. Here’s three reasons why:

  • No Dez Bryant
  • No DeMarco Murray. The Cowboys always used Murray against the Eagles as their primary weapon.
  • Pass rush – Cowboys will be missing key players that could impact Sam Bradford’s performance.

Sam Bradford is a good pick for fantasy football

As reported by syracuse.com, Sam Bradford is among 5 players worth reaching for fantasy football.

2. Sam Bradford, quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles

Yes, Sam Bradford has been constantly injured throughout his five-year career, but the idea of marrying his accuracy and arm talent to Chip Kelly’s quarterback-friendly scheme in Philadelphia is intoxicating. If Bradford stays healthy, he has the upside to be one of the best quarterbacks in fantasy football. Kelly turned less talented quarterbacks into useful fantasy players. Imagine what he can do with Bradford.

Chip Kelly has already shown what he can do with Sam Bradford this preseason. He did take some hits but was still able to get back up and play. Bradford’s throws are accurate and on time, but his health is always a concern for everyone.

Mark Sanchez Ranks #1 out of 32 backup quarterbacks

According to NFL.com, Mark Sanchez ranks #1 out of 32 backup quarterbacks.

It’s possible that Sanchez starts the season, but the Eagles are paying Bradford $12.985 million this year to Sanchez’s $2.5 million. If Bradford isn’t fully healthy by Week 1, Sanchez gives Chip Kelly a player familiar with the system and one who led the Jets to consecutive AFC title games. His inspired play tailed off down the stretch in 2014, but I’m also basing this off fit: Philly’s run-heavy, “QB-proof” attack is an outstanding landing spot for our top-ranked backup.

Sam Bradford’s health is always going to be a concern this up-coming season. As you already know, Bradford has not played football since 2013. Keep in mind that Sanchez could be our starting quarterback. I have my doubts that Tim Tebow will be doing anything this season. Tebow would be useful in redzone wildcat plays.
