Tony Romo Wusses Out

Even after being called out by Brett Favre, Tony Romo was too much of a puss to play today. As a result washed up back up QB Brad Johnson threw 3 interceptions, and the St. Louis Rams beat the bricks out of the Dallas Cowboys 34-14. Romo should have listened to his child hood idol.

When you are the QB for a team with high hopes in a tough division like the NFC East, you can not sit out of the game because you hurt your little pinkie finger. A real QB mans up, and plays. We are talking about a pinkie here. Put a little sleeve over the pinkie, take some pain medication, and give it a go. A Tony Romo who is 70% effective is much better than Brad Johnson who gives you absoloutely nothing.

Brett Favre tried to tell Romo to grow some balls, because he is Mr. Iron man. In 2003 Favre fractured his thumb on his throwing hand, and never missed a game.  That same year Donovan McNabb broke the thumb on his hand, and he never missed a snap. The Eagles and the Packers both had good seasons, and met up in the second round of the playoffs.

Romo could learn what tough is from Trevor Wikre. A senior at Mesa State College, Wikre was facing season ending surgery, after severely injuring his pinkie finger. Trevor felt so strongly about not letting his team down, he decided to amputate his finger, and continue playing.

“Cut it off,” Wikre said. “It’s just a pinkie.”

If Romo had 1 ounce of the guts that Wikre does, maybe Dallas wouldn’t have gotten embarressed by the lowly Rams. The Cowboys worst enemy is becomming their own QB. First the fumbled snap in the playoffs, then the Mexico vacation with Jessica Simpson, and now just a flat out lack of heart. The sad thing is the Cowboys need him.

Dallas is quickly falling out of the NFC East race, having lost three of their last four games. They are also letting the Eagles back into the playoff hunt.

Thank you Tony Romo Mr. Softee.

Side Note: Newly aquired WR Roy Williams really made a big impact in his first game with the Cowboys. Williams had zero catches. Good thing Dallas gave up first and third round picks for him.

    Were are the Dallas fans now. DALLAS SUCKS.

  • Redskins Guy

    Yeah Dallas really sucks.  Surely they’re at the bottom of the division by now, right? Oh wait, there’s still you guys.  Have fun competing for last place.

    Guy – The Eagles were burried two weeks ago, and got a lot of help from other teams. The Rams beating your Skins, and the Cowboys. Arizona beating Dallas, and the Giants losing the the Browns. The Eagles are back in it now.

    Being benched wasn’t his choice. It was Wade Phillip’s choice. That kid from Mesa State College is a retard, too. Then there’s this:

    You always claim to know a whole lot about football. This statement proves otherwise. If you knew anything about football, you wouldn’t have expected anything from Williams in this first game after spending a few days practicing with the team. I don’t expect to see that much from him until much later in the season when Romo is back and can work with him some.

    MB3 – It was Romo’s choice. He was acting like a wimp in practice, and he went to “Dr. Jerry” and told him that he didn’t want to go. Wade Phillips does not make any decisions for the Cowboys. He is simply a cheer leader who will be used as the scapegoat for the Cowboys’ failure this year.

    I know Roy Williams was only there a few days, and I get having Romo there would make a difference, but come on. Zero catches? Not a very good start.
