Tony Romo, Dallas CowboysHi David, just got back healthy a couple of weeks ago and ready for a new season to start.
2:32 PM ETWhat an Honour to be able to Question Tony Romo. What is your prediction for this sunday.
Tony Romo, Dallas CowboysMatt, I think it's gonna be a great game. Difficult to pick because you have two great teams that play the same style of defense.
2:33 PM EThey tony being that you have faced both super bowl opponets in the past who to you has the better defense?
Tony Romo, Dallas CowboysTavon, I think the team that runs the ball best is probably going to win. Both teams want to play with two high safeties.
Saying that, I think Pittsburgh has a slight edge.
Eli Kunstler, New York
2:34 PM ETWhat do you think the Cowboys record will be next year?
Tony Romo, Dallas CowboysEli, I think ... let's see... I'm not into records, but I do think we'll have a very good football team. I'm excited about the guys we have coming back.

2:38 PM ETwhat do the cowboys have to change on your roster to make it to playoff next year?

Tony Romo, Dallas CowboysAshton, it's definitely going to affect us. I've already started to get the guys to understand a certain kind of schedule I'll put in place in case there's an issue. I'm still treating it as if we have OTAs and minicamps.
