MI: Well, I'll say so when Romo doesn't play well, like in the Giants game [a 33--31 loss on Sept. 20]. But I will cool down my opinion before it gets to "Romo can't do it" or anything like that. Go back in the history of the quarterbacks for the Dallas Cowboys. We had Drew Bledsoe, Quincy Carter, Ryan Leaf.... Compared to those guys, Tony Romo is God himself.

DP: What advice would you give [49ers holdout] Michael Crabtree?
MI: I would tell him, I appreciate you want to show people you are a serious businessman. And I think you've accomplished that to a certain degree.

Michael Crabtree needs to understand that his agent, Eugene Parker, wants a great deal for all the other people that are coming after [Crabtree]. The 49ers, they're trying to give as little as they can so they can save [money] and look great. I would step in the middle and say, Hey, y'all put your egos aside and get my greens in my pocket and get me on this field.

MI: You think you can do that, Dan? You think you can [dance]?
MI: Stop it.
DP: Mike, if [Mark] Cuban can, I can. And you know I've got some rhythm, you've seen it.
MI: I did see it? Oh, God, I did see it! Hey! Have you ever told that story about the—
DP: I've got to go, Mike. We'll tell that story another day.
