DISAPPOINTMENT IN ROMO
By mark rogers
November 3, 2008
As much as I love Tony Romo and have supported him throughout his career, I am extremely disappointed in him as a football player right now.
I was the first to jump to his defense about "the pinky" when he first broke it. Yes, it's bad to play with it because it could make it worse and accuracy will be great effected.
True...but when your team is on the brink of another huge embarrassing failure of a season, you have to suck it up and get out there. Not be sucking on coffee on the sidelines in a beanie.
If Dallas were heading into yesterday's game 6-2, then sure, sit out. We can afford 6-3 heading into the bye week.
But when we're 5-3 with a chance to fall completely out of the division and maybe even playoff race, you have to at least suit up and be ready to go in case our two "outstanding" back ups lay an egg.
Brad Johnson and Brooks Bollinger are absolutely the worst quarterbacks in the history of the universe.
You could put just about any backup QB in the league out there with that offense and get at least a LITTLE production.
We have two of the best receivers in the game, the best tight end (with a broken rib), one of the toughest and hard-nosed running backs EVER, and we can't rack up more than 180 yards and one touchdown???!!!
It's pathetic. It's embarrassing. It's downright pitiful.
And what I don't understand is that Romo's taking absolutely no heat for his actions...or non-actions.
I might have to eat these words at the end of the season when we're 10-6 headed to the post-season, clicking on all cylinders. But I doubt it.
We have to win five of our last seven games against Washington, San Francisco, Seattle. the Giants, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. That wouldn't be easy for anybody to do, much less the most over-hyped and under-achieving team in the history of the NFL.
Dear Tony Romo,
Take the beanie off year head. Put on your football helmet. Wrap some tape around your precious pinky and get out there and play some ball.
I shake my head in your general direction and hope you are never mentioned in the same breath as Brett Favre EVER again.
Every Dallas Cowboy fan on Earth
