Cowboys QB Tony Romo is the new Brett Favre. No matter how sick we get of hearing the same ol’ story, about Romo choking in big games, people just can’t stop talking about him.
Deion Sanders is pretty much sick of Romo quarterbacking his former team.
“Sooner or later, we’ve just got to quit guessing and assuming that this guy is the guy to get you over the hump, and say, ‘You know what? This guy is always going to be great statistically, but he’s not that guy that can take you to where you want to go.’ And that’s the Super Bowl.” Sanders said Sunday on NFL Network. “I’m sick and tired of it. I am. …
“Dallas Cowboys fans are sick of it. We had (Romo) on our shoulders last week. ‘Oh, Tony, he’s our king!’ But now we want to stone him. I’m serious, that’s the way (fans) feel about him because you can’t trust him. I like him. Statistically, he’s great, but you can’t trust him.”
Trust this: Romo will come under fire again at some point this season — probably sooner than later. We should get a breather the rest of the week with the Cowboys on a bye. But before that could happen, Redskins TE Chris Cooley got in one last jab, when he expressed great pleasure Monday in watching Romo lead the biggest collapse in Cowboys history against the Lions.
“It’s so good,” Cooley said. “… It’s amazing, amazing to watch him choke like that. I’m just saying. … It’s hilarious to watch him throw pick-sixes, too, back to back. I loved it.”
