Romo: We've Been In Eagles' Situation

As far as bulletin board material goes, this doesn't really qualify, and it definitely doesn't stack up to Rob Ryan's sound bite from earlier this month.

In fact, Romo was trying to avoid controversy altogether when asked for his thoughts on the talent the divsision-rival Eagles have been stockpiling. But he did say something of interest in the wake of Philadelphia adding Nnamdi Asomugha, Ronnie Brown, Cullen Jenkins, Jason Babin and Steve Smith.

"I just think that's their decision this year," Romo said. "We've been in that situation before. That's all management stuff."

Indeed, the Cowboys' maneuvering has brought them preseason hype before, most notably in 2008. On the heels of a 13-3 season, the team re-signed severa of its biggest stars, brought in Zach Thomas and Pacman Jones, had two first round picks and traded for receiver Roy Williams at the deadline.

The Cowboys can only hope Philadelphia's dealings turn out so badly.

"As far as what I think about it? It doesn't mean anything until we play Philadelphia," Romo said. "So that's something that really hasn't been on my mind. You see it and you move on, really, throughout your day.

"I'm sure it'll be fun to watch for people."
