Beastlines: Is Romo an all-time great?

Dallas Cowboys

As part of a series on non-starters with a lot to prove this summer, Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com takes a look at Jason Hatcher.

The Dallas Morning News' Rick Gosselin makes the argument that Tony Romo is already among the all-time elite quarterbacks.

DMN's Gerry Fraley asks if Romo is the opposite of LeBron James.

New York Giants

ESPNNewYork.com's Ohm Youngmisuk has an update on injured rookie safety Chad Jones as well as other post-July 4th notes.

Teammate Justin Tuck talked about Chad Jones' mindset: "... From everything I've read and everything I've heard, he seems to be optimistic about walking running and playing again. That's the No. 1 battle. If you can keep it together mentally in situations like that, it gives you a better chance of making it through."

Philadelphia Eagles

Howard Eskin of WIP radio in Philadelphia tweeted that the Eagles may be interested in Troy Smith.

Jeffrey McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports the team is aware of Michael Vick's "confrontation" at his birthday party and "considers the DA statement about the incident a mischaracterization."

Washington Redskins

Charles Woodson, the reigning AP defensive player of the year, had this to say about Albert Haynesworth's situation: "I think probably the consensus is nobody can understand how you can get $100 million and not want to come play whatever system it is."

Analyst Cris Collinsworth had high praise for the acquisition of Donovan McNabb, calling the Skins' trade for the quarterback "one of the great additions to a team I've ever seen."
