Sorry, but a team who has gone 7-9, 2-14, 4-12, and 7-9 in the past four seasons and has a QB who has been as bad as David Carr was in his first two seasons is NOT a team on the rise.
How you go 7-9 playing in a weak ass division with a 1,600+ yard RB is insane.
If anything, the Titans should have more prime-time spots because they actually have a player/team who can compete with the elite teams of the league and provide entertainment instead of having the "Well, who is going to end up with the most losses for the year" game, which San Francisco is usually involved in here in recent history.

Thats just absolute stupidity right there.
Romo played a very small part in the collapse the Cowboys experienced during the last month of the season.
The Cowboys' 'D' bears about 90% of that blame. After Greg Ellis went down, the defense simply collapsed as they had nobody else to put in there than could get to the QB and teams simply were able to focus on elminating Ware and Spears. That combined with the fact that the Cowboys have a very poor core of DB's behind Newman and a safety in Roy Williams who couldn't cover to save his life, you aren't going to be able to stop many teams.
The Cowboys took care of two need areas over the off-season in signing S- Ken Hamlin and OL - Leonard Davis. More than likely they will look to CB in the draft.
Romo played at a very high level when he was in there and would have played even better had he been able to take more snaps with the 1st team offense and started from Day 1 at the beginning of this past season.
10-6 or 11-5 is not out of reason seeing as how they went 9-7 with him only starting 11 of 16 games.
