As painful as this season might have been for Tony Romo – physically with his busted wing and emotionally with having to watch two other teams play the Super Bowl in his home stadium – the Cowboys QB dutifully made the rounds at the media center on Friday and stopped to chat with NFL.com about how he’s faring.
First question of course, how’s the arm?
“Just got back healthy a couple of weeks ago and ready for a new season to start,” said Romo of the broken left clavicle he suffered in Week 7 against the Giants.
And next, how’s the pride swallowing?
“It’ll be tough because every season you start off with the expectation to play in this game and being in our own stadium just makes it tougher,” said Romo.
The Wisconsin native naturally grew up a Packers’ fan with Brett Favre as one of his idols, but he surprisingly claimed to not be pulling for the green and gold this weekend when asked.
“No, that’s when I was younger,” said Romo. “I’m just rooting for a good game.”
In fact, when pulled for a prediction, Romo went so far as to pick against his childhood favorite.
“I think the team that runs the ball best is probably going to win,” said Romo. “Both teams want to play with two high safeties. Saying that, I think Pittsburgh has a slight edge.”
