Wade Phillips defenses have always been known for rushing the QB and this team, led by Demarcus Ware with 19 sacks (leading the league) is on his way to breaking Michael Strahan’s all time record of 22.5. Harvey Martin had 23 one year but that was before it was kept as a stat.

This defense has 53 sacks. The Cowboys record is 62, set by the 1985 Cowboys. That 4-3 defense had a pretty good line of Jim Jeffcoat Randy White Ed “Too Tall” Jones and John Dutton.

Good after Dark: Cowboys are 11-0 in last 11 games at night.
Looks like good enough odds to put your money on the Cowboys. Bet the bank!

Now, more on the Pro Bowl and Tony Romo getting hosed:

1)YPA(yards per attempt)If you take a QB’s total passing yards and divide by attempts..
The top two rated QB’s in the NFL are..in order..Phillip Rivers/SD..and..Tony Romo..both tied at 8.23 ypa..

2)TD%..If you take a qb’s total attempts and divide by td’s..you get TD%..This one really matters..Once again Rivers and Romo lead the NFL at 6.6%tds…

So I took these stats and one other..(INT%..number of attempts..divided by..ints..) With these relevant numbers..I compared Tony to Kurt Warner..the Pro Bowl starter..

Romo…yards..4527….Warner…4290
Romo…ints…17……Warner…13
Romo…td’s…37……Warner…26
Romo…%……63……Warner…68

Now who is the starting QB in the Pro Bowl?
