NFL Network aired the latest segment of Deion Sanders' conversation with Brett Favre on Tuesday, the chat turning to the quarterbacks Favre enjoys watching today.

He praised the usual suspects, calling Peyton Manning a "GM on the field," proclaiming Drew Brees to be "in a league by himself," and (perhaps begrudgingly) saying Aaron Rodgers "handles the cast around him perfectly."

But Favre saved his most interesting comments for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, the player he says he can most relate to.

"Romo is probably more like me than any of those guys," he said. "I don't know if that's good, because I think way too much is cast upon him. Good or bad.

"It's Dallas. And much is expected. But he's carried those guys, man. I mean, I'm watching last year, and I like Tony. And I like the way he plays. I think at times he's underrated."

Favre apparently believes Romo has to deal with teammates who aren't fully plugged into the Dallas gameplan.

"But I'm watching, and right before the snap, he's telling guys -- and you've probably seen it, too -- he's like ... "

"They don't know what they're doing!" Sanders jumped in.

"How in the world are you gonna have a positive play when the ball's coming and you're telling guys (where to line up)?" Favre went on. "But he'll make something out of nothing."

Favre faced plenty of pressure in his career, but Romo might actually have him beat. Favre was always loved when he was with the Green Bay Packers, win or lose. Romo is in an unending audition for respect. Fair or not, he will always be held responsible for the Cowboys' shortcomings.

Yeah, I've definitely seen that happen to him.

I've always thought it was kinda funny...

Me too, this is why I dont get why this team is picked to do anything. Romo seems like the only guy on offense that knows WTF he is doing.

So have I, and Favre's correct in that Romo is easily the most like him, with that gunslinger type attitude. I've felt like the last couple of years if the Cowboys could all get on the same page they could do some serious damage.

So without being too d!ckish, what's the deal then?? Gameplan too hard or players too stupid or undisciplined?

Either way, if it's not Romo, it's on Garrett

I think Garrett gets some of the blame, but some of the discipline has to go on the players themselves. I mean if you are getting paid millions shouldnt that be enough to motivate you to do your job? I like Garrett as the coach, but you are right about discipline...just look how often our Oline has been penalized recently. If Dallas could get out of its own way it would do a lot to help the team succeed.

One thing's for sure... Miles Austin is always lined up correctly.

I have to imagine that with all his physical tools, Dez Bryant is starting to lose a little face in the Lone Star State. What is he associated with? Attitude as a rookie and lacksadaisical play.

Your biggest threat is going to be DeMarco Murray with a full offseason...blink.png Yikes!

Im really excited about Murray. He had 850 yards as a rookie in a shortened season. This year he starts from week 1. Still comes down to that Oline though. Everything starts there, and thats where Im worried.

Like we discussed in another, you're going to have to find a third WR option or teams will be able to put enough attention on Dez and Austin and put a safety on Witten and still have two LB's to watch Murray and send a third as a blitz option.

Im hoping Andre Holmes wins the job...we have a couple of guys fighting for it though.

Andre Holmes - youtube.com/watch?v=XDOzfKLVOAg

Saalim Hakim - youtube.com/watch?v=sir5GjOeD5A&feature=related

Danny Coale - youtube.com/watch?v=sir5GjOeD5A&feature=related

Cole Beasley - youtube.com/watch?v=dIk5kbbaCjE

Beasley has really opened some eyes in camp. So well see who wins.
