As we are only hours away from the start of the 2012 NFL season, the ad wizards over at Starter decided to put together a new campaign featuring Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
The commercial itself called "Never Stop" features Tony talking via a voice-over about his critics while he works out in a weight room:

Cowboys QB Tony Romo proved he's still one of fantasy's best second-tier QBs with 307 yards and three touchdowns Wednesday in the season opener against the Giants.Fantasy Spin:Romo spread the ball around and the Cowboys offense produced three excellent fantasy receiver lines from Kevin Ogletree, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. Romo should continue to put up big numbers, especially...
As the Dallas Cowboys/New York Giants kicked off the start of the 2012 NFL season, the fine folks over at WFAN's Boomer and Carton show already have a Tony Romo sucks song to bestow upon us.
The song done by Al Dukes is parody of Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup" and if you're a Giants fan, you will be laughing in the aisles on this one:

The situation in Dallas for Tony Romo has been interesting lately with all of Dez Bryant’s issues, Miles Austin at less than 100%, Jason Witten’s spleen, Laurent Robinson leaving via free agency, etc. I had a draft just two nights ago where Romo was drafted in the 9th round. (9th!) That is completely and totally insane, but I suppose there were some reasons why people have...
Good to be a winner
The Tony Romo haters have to hate the way the 2012 NFL season kicked off. For the first time in nine years, the defending Super Bowl champs lost the opener at home. In a much-anticipated NFC East rumble, Romo’s Cowboys out-dueled Eli’s Giants, 24–17.
Romo was brilliant. He completed 22 of 29 passes for 307 yards and three touchdowns. Sure, he...

East Rutherford, N.J. — The New York Football Giants began their Super Bowl Championship defense against the Dallas Cowboys on a Wednesday night in September with a 24-17 loss. It was the 101st meeting between the two teams. The New York Giants have been on the losing end more often than...
Wait, the ‘Gobble Gobble, *******’ chick is a Va. Tech student? Looks to be 38 & a lesbian softball coach. Want to buy a Gobble Gobble shirt for your next party? Here you go. Thanks to @sesdsports for sending the screencap.
In NFL news, our friend & NY Post reporter Bart Hubbuch pissed off Tony Romo with a window closing question. That window would be Jerry’s window...
The NFL’s NFC East are a big rival division, perhaps the best division in sports. Usually the teams dislike one another…or to put it simply, they hate one another. That’s certainly the case tonight as the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants play host to the Dallas Cowboys to kick off the season. Check out the cover of today’s New York Post. Let’s hope Tony...
Fantasy football players are tripping over themselves rushing to the computer this morning to put in a waiver wire claim for Kevin Ogletree. I won’t be one of them as it will take a lot more than one game out of 32 to suddenly convince me that this kid is as good as his numbers.
The excitement of opening day can bring many different feelings to an NFL player like Dez Bryant, Tony Romo, or Morris Claiborne. For some, it is the first time they strap on a helmet and hit the battle field. This time everything counts. For others, it’s just another game and fresh start to an NFL [...]
The NFL is back! It’s an amazing feeling to know that there will be football to watch on every Sunday, Monday and Thursday for the next 4+ months. The NFL season kicked off last night with the Dallas Cowboys traveling to East Rutherford, New Jersey to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants and neither team disappointed. It was a thrilling game from start to finish...
Finally NFL football is back! A late rally by Eli Manning and the defending champion New York Giants came up short on this opening Wednesday kickstart to the 2012 campaign.The long awaited divisional matchup began in lackluster fashion, the only touchdown in a yawner of a first half coming on a Tony Romo toss to Kevin Ogletree from ten yards out with 2:33 left before intermission...
Football season is officially (almost) underway!With the kickoff of the first game comes the kickoff of the first story-lines. Every team has them, and this year is no exception.The first story-line is the game itself - the first of 17 Thursday night games this season, all on NFL Network except this one. Only one problem - it isn’t being played on Thursday, because the President...
