Rap Sheet Rundown: The Week 3 Edition

Cowboys QB Tony Romo kept getting up yesterday (Associated Press)

The Cowboys pulled out an ugly win yesterday over the Bucs, the kind of gritty, hard-fought battle that allows you to learn about yourself. For sure, they learned about their quarterback, though it’s something they already knew.

Tony Romo is a tough dude. Yesterday, he was the symbol of toughness, rising again and again despite being brutalized by the Bucs defense. He was sacked and belted, hit helmet-to-helmet and flung to the ground. He kept getting up and was perfect in the fourth quarter despite all that. Teammates were impressed, and they took notice.

Some quarterbacks who take hits like that don’t want to go back,” Cowboys WR Dez Bryant said. “Not him.”

The Cowboys fed off their quarterback. The item on Romo from yesterday’s game is the lead topic, but it’s not the only one in our weekly ritual. I also talk about Randy Moss, Vikings QB Christian Ponder, the Eagles woes, and a ton of other topics.
