Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall made waves by saying he was going to target Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s injured ribs and running back Felix Jones’ sore shoulder when the Redskins play the Cowboys on Monday night:

Tony Romo Has A Punctured Lung; He'd Be Stupid to Play Monday Night

Should the injured Cowboys' quarterback take the field against the Redskins?

Tony Romo is a man. We know that now. There's no discussion about his toughness or his ability to lead the Dallas Cowboys locker room after it was revealed that he had a punctured lung and two fractured ribs during Sunday's game against the 49ers.

He's tough, we get it.

Tony Gonzalez, TE, Falcons
With all eyes on quarterbacks Michael Vick and Matt Ryan, it was the 35-year-old future Hall of Fame tight end Gonzalez who stole the show in Atlanta on Sunday night. The 15-year veteran had seven catches for 83 yards and two acrobatic TD receptions — the 89th and 90th of his illustrious career — during an especially sweet 35–31 victory over the Eagles.

Tony Romo the Bum is Now Tony Romo the Hero in Dallas

Remember last week when that bum Tony Romo played like a stupid jerk and ruined the Cowboys victory against the Jets? Yeah, me either. Because after suffering through a week of "he can't do it" and "Romo is not a gamer" and "The Cowboys can never win with Romo as their quarterback," Tony Romo came out and was the hero against the San Francisco 49ers.

NFL Preseason Award Predictions

Can Aaron Rodgers add a league MVP trophy to the Super Bowl XLV MVP he won in February?
<p> Aaron Rodgers for MVP, Mark Ingram for Rookie of the Year, Tony Romo for Comeback Player of the Year and much more.</p>

The 2011 NFL season kicks off with a Thursday night showdown between the last two Super Bowl champions, as Super Bowl XLIV MVP quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints march to Lambeau Field to take on Super Bowl XLV MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers — in the first of 256 regular season games that span from Sept. 8 until Jan. 1, 2012.

Before a snap has been taken, Athlon Sports looks into our crystal ball in an attempt to predict who will be award-worthy after the dust settles this season.

Fantasy Football: Ask Athlon Week 1

Beware of RBs that face Pittsburgh and the Jets on multiple occasions

Never bench your studs. Yeah, right. Just because you drafted a running back in the first round, don't think you can just set him in the starting lineup and not have to worry about him falling on his face.

Case in point is Week 1 and Baltimore's Ray Rice. If you're in a non-PPR sit him. If you're in a league without a flex position, sit him. And if you're in a PPR league with a flex position, really consider going somewhere else this week if you have better options/matchups.

By RALPH VACCHIANO

No one has ever won an NFL championship in the spring and summer, and no one has ever lost one either. That’s not for lack of trying, of course.

Just ask the “Dream Team” in Philadelphia, or any of the up-and-comers pumping up their chests and thinking about a Super Bowl run. There are probably 32 teams thinking that way at the moment, even though a few of them are clearly braced for a fall.

Dallas Cowboys 2011 NFL Team Preview

We take an in-depth look at the Cowboys chances at making a Super Bowl run this year.

The best thing about this year is that it isn’t last year. The Cowboys’ 1–7 start in 2010 quickly ended any Super Bowl talk. The team is looking to start over this year with a new head coach and a good-as-new quarterback. Jason Garrett inherits a team that returns most of its starters, including quarterback Tony Romo, who missed the final 10 games with a fractured left clavicle.

Some things have changed with the Cowboys, including the defensive coordinator, as have some names. But the expectations remain the same.
