There are two things that matter about the Dallas Cowboys’ 34-18 home, Monday Night Football loss to the Chicago Bears:
- Tony Romo threw 5 interceptions.
- Tony Romo’s 5 interceptions helped me to a 5 point loss in my fantasy league.
No doubt to those who play fantasy football you understand that #2 is actually the most important. At the start of this fantasy season I thought maybe, just maybe Romo was going to snap out of it and actually start to produce. I could care less if the Cowboys actually win, I just want him to give me my fantasy stats! I have experienced in the past the wrath of Romo ( typically replace the ‘R’ in his name with the 8th letter of the alphabet). Against my better judgment, this year I drafted him again. BAD MOVE! Romo’s 5 INT’s was the difference in my team being 2-2 and ranked #7 in the 12 team league and now being 1-3 and ranked 11th. Terrible, just terrible!! Following INT number 4 I was actually still in it for the win. The only thing that could keep me from winning was if he threw another one and there was NO WAY he would throw another one, until he did! This year Romo is not on my league’s “can’t cut” list and for that reason I wanted more than anything to cut his ass right then, but I didn’t.
Now, to speak to the thing that matters second most but is listed as number one on the list above, Romo actually threw 5 interceptions. What NFL quarterback does that in one game? I’m not a Cowboys fan, but I know plenty of people who are and I have a message for them. There is no way the Cowboys will make it back to, let alone win the Super Bowl as long as Tony Romo is the quarterback. That my friends is a fact. I’m sure many of you will explain away Romo’s failures (like you always do) by saying his receivers didn’t help him out and caused some of the interceptions. My response to that is if you continue to have to make excuses for his failures then at some point you must realize he’s a failure; and he is just that.
It remains to be known what will happen to Romo the remainder of this season both on the field and on my fantasy team.
