The real reason ex-Cowboys TE Bennett ranked Tony Romo as worst QB he's played with

Matt Mosley, contributor to SportsDayDFW.com and columnist for Texas Monthly, answered your questions Tuesday in a live chat. Here are some highlights. Thoughts on MartyB ranking Romo lowest among the starting QBs he's played with? Being salty is the only way you can end up ranking Tony lower than Cutler, right? Right? Matt Mosley: That's just Marty being Marty. He's not the first player to believe he was frozen out by Tony Romo and Jason Witten. He knows Romo was a talented QB, but he just didn't like those two a lot. Part of it that Marty might not admit was that he was pretty immature...

Dallas Cowboys: Predicting Team Captains For The 2017 Season

In 2016 the captains were Jason Witten, Travis Frederick, Sean Lee, Barry Church, and Dan Bailey. The 2017 Dallas Cowboys team captains could look much different.
