I could point to out 100 things that Tony Romo has done wrong since he took over as the Dallas Cowboys quarterback. Last night’s lost was ugly with a capital G. Romo must have been blind, stupid and given short arms because he looked like crap.
It’s been over 12 hours now, and I’m moving on and focusing on the next game. Shockingly, I still love Romo like I always do. Why? Have I lost my mind? Did I forget what he did last night and all the bad games he has had?
Nope, never will.
I still believe in Tony Romo, but clearly he has a few demons to overcome before he can become the best that he can be.
Last week everyone loved Romo, saying that he looked sharp, led some solid scoring drives, and changed for the better. All those good vibes came crashing down after last night’s game. The second the game ended, blogs, message/chat boards and everything else internet was overwhelmed with one general sentiment; Let’s hang Tony Romo.
I’m not sure what I’m madder at? The fact everyone flip-flops with Romo, or the fact that they drink the Kool-aid and then act like they never drank it at all.
Last night the coaching was bad, the defense was bad, Romo was bad, and for some reason the ball kept bouncing the right way for the Giants. Even the final score of 32-31 shows what a good battle the game was, but try telling that to a Dallas fan. The one thing you have to credit Romo for is that he does blame himself for the game and he knows it’s his fault. It’s the least he can do seeing how he of all people should know he freezes in games like this. Pressure isn’t Romo’s friend.
Being the star QB for “America’s Team” isn’t easy. Cowboys’ fans like winners, we love them. But to be frank we’re spoiled as hell. Losing isn’t our style and we demand perfection from everyone on the team. Sorry, I’m not one of those fans.
The Campo era taught me to love every win you get because it could be worse. Even so, heavy is the crown being the QB for the Cowboys. Could you image if the internet was around when Danny White was playing? Damn. Everyone and I do mean everyone drank the Romo kool-aid when Bledsoe refused to run out of the pocket or move on the fly. Everyone loved Romo. Two full years as quarterback and no Super Bowl. Not even a playoff win. Yea, someone give me a rope. Now that everything is over and it’s September, I’m ready for the next game. I’ll get the cups out just in case you so-called Romo haters/Die hard Cowboys fan want a sip. Also some lumber in case he loses and you wanna build a cross.
Let’s Go Cowboys and I LOVE YOU ROMO!
