Romo's a Go? Bad Idea If You Ask Me

Many sources around the net are reporting that Tony Romo is ready and wants to start on Sunday against the Rams despite his broken finger.

The story is that Romo practiced today and looked good and felt confident. Many players have played through injuries, even other big name quarterbacks such as Brett Favre.

My opinion… its a bad idea, especially against the St. Louis Rams. I don’t think we need Romo to win this game. Brad Johnson can stand in this one game and get the job done. We don’t need to risk our leading star to further injury.

The following week against the Bucs, and definitely the one after with the Giants, we will need Tony. I think we should give him a week off to heal. It’s just not worth it.

    Who is to say we dont “NEED” Tony this week, we are in a dogfight, and need to get every victory we can….these are critical times, we can’t assume the playoffs or anything else are our birthright! We need the best players possible on ANY GIVEN SUNDAY! Bring it ROMO….

    What is being said is that the Rams do not pose a pass rush like the Giants Redskins or Bcs or even Arizona for that matter
    Brad Johnson can manage this game let Tony take some time off and heal a bit more, we can beat ST with a savy vet like Brad because they do not blitz and when they do its very basic blitzes
    The Giants Redskins and Buccaneers have very complex styles of defenses and Tony’s athlleticism will be needed

    I know we need wins, but I’d sacrifice this one to get him better. Its better for him to be out one game as opposed to the rest of the season.
    Don’t get me wrong I LOVE ROMO! I love that hes a warrior and he will play with his chin gashed open and blood drippin’ and get the job done.
    We need him. He is essential for this team to succeed. If he does play the damn O-Line better shape up and guard him with their lives!

  4. I agree, take at least a week off Romo. Hell, be ready to be a back up if for some reason Brad Johnson doesnt cut it. Have Romo ready on the bench if he feels he can play but don’t put him in only if needed

    I agree with Kelly, and to risk losing Romo for a longer stretch because of a game against the Rams is unwise. If we can’t beat the Rams with Brad Johnson, then we were all wrong about this being a playoff team.

    C’mon guys. IT’S A PINKIE! Risk what further injury?? We lose to the Rams this weekend and you think things are bad now. In case no one’s paying attention the Rams just beat the Skins. Yeah we all know they suck but anything can happen. I think he should play.

    I guess Cowboy Bill has never tossed a football around. LOL Im just messin with ya Bill. Dont get all huffy and puffy. I dont care for Brad Johnson. Not at all. But, I think Romo should take at least 1 week off. Why take the chance? If he cant get a solid grip on the ball to really put some heat on it, or to get it deep,why take the chance. Give him a week. Then him and his pinky should be fine. Dont get me wrong, if Brad is havin a a really bad day…I’ll be yellin “PUT ROMO IN!!” LOL. Have a great day everyone! GO COWBOYS!!

    But f Romo can go and not hurt the team or himself further then i see no reson why he shouldnt play
    Now if playing means he would hurt himself and further mre jeopardize this season tie him down to the bence and hire that 4 man security detail from Pacman put them on Romo lol

  9. MARTHA VALDEZ

    COM”ON PEOPLE LETS LET ROMO SIT THIS ONE OUT AND NOT INJURE HIS PINKIE MORE THAN IT ALREADY IS AND LETS GIVE JOHNSON A CHANCE TO KICK SOME RAMS BUTT AND IM VERY CONFIDENT THAT WE WILL WIN THIS GAME!! BUT IF ROMO WANTS TO PLAY MORE POWER TO HIM AND GO COWBOYS!!

    Kelly is right !
    We will need Tony a whole lot more down the stretch if We are going to make a run at the Superbowl !
    We will need to have Tony 100% healthy come December, if We take a chance right now We will lose him for the Season TRUST ME we don’t want to not have Him for the last 6 games !!!
    BELIEVE!!!!!!!!
