Miles Austin shows he's worth the money

LANDOVER, Md. -- Can the people concerned about whether the Cowboys were too quick to give Miles Austin a massive contract please calm down?

Austin's performance in the season opener provided further proof that he's an elite receiver worth $9 million per season, not a flash in the pan.

A few days after signing his six-year, $54 million extension, Austin dominated the Redskins secondary. They simply couldn't cover him. Austin caught 10 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown. Tony Romo only threw one incompletion to Austin.

"Miles is a great player," Romo said. "Can’t say enough about him. He deserves everything that he gets.

There are plenty of causes for concern with the Cowboys right now. Austin isn't one of them.
