Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware told SiriusXM NFL Radio that Tony Romo deserves his new contract, but it’s time for him to back it up on the field. “I feel like you know everybody is deserving of whatever is given to them,” Ware said, per ESPNDallas.com. “But at the end of the day, to me, it’s put up or shut up. I’m just being straight up honest with you. Get out there and be productive, and that’s with any player. Whatever they get, they’re deserving of it. You just got to get out there and play, and I know he can be and will be the quarterback who will take us to the next level.” I thought Romo was supposed step up and lead the Cowboys to a championship years ago.  Odds are that he never leads the Cowboys to a Super Bowl.  They don’t have the leadership and he doesn’t have what it takes as a quarterback.   H/T Black Sports Online   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagNa

  • How can Tony "put up or shut up" when he is running for his life on every passing play? Yes he has made some bad throws but what qback doesn't? Difference is the boys don't have a shut down defense and are not good enough to overcome those mistakes.Give him a line that can run and pass block, then Tony has to put up or shut up.
  • Tony Romo will be another Danny White can never take us to a superbowl , JERRY JONES lives a fantasy thinking ROMO is the QB
    he needs to wake up ROMO will never be a champion
  • Thank you. I thought I was the only one that remembers the Danny White years. Good enough to let you down. Nothing else. Soon as you believe, BAM!!! lets you down
  • He's been around for 10 years now and 7 as starter. He is not the only QB in league with problems. Joe montana didn't complain about the team in KC and got the most out of them. Romo is a choke artist. yes other people mess up but not for the game. He messes up when the game is on the line then throws everyone else under the bus and people are getting tired of it.
  • So we have a couple of guys here one who thinks he is the savior of our sins and the other who is the alter ego of the Incredible Hulk making judgements on Tony Romo. Do you have a clue about football?

    Tony Romo is not perfect but he is the 5th highest rated quarterback in the league. He doesn't have an acceptable support staff. A line that doesn't block, receivers that either can't run routes or drop passes IN THE ENDZONE. Has he lost games? yes he has, but not nearly as often as his players around him have blown big plays and cost games. Let's not forget a defense that is a pourous as a collander.

    So get over yourselves...go read a book of Football for Dummies and learn the game.
  • OH, Pleazzzzzzzzzzzzzz, Aaron Rodgers was the most sacked QB for the past three years, running for his life and still managed to win a SB, SB MPV, league MPV and is the highest rated QB in history. And I don't have to mentioned that defense that keeps the other teams in game. Your logic is flawed. Rodgers, Brees, Payton, Brady and the other Manning have had the same situations at one time or another and all are SB MPV QBs.
  • Finally a real leader on my favorite team emerges. But Ware should've also remind Romo that FOOTBALL makes him & to leave his future prospects as a professional GOLFER on the bench. Tell Romo to get his OVERPAID a** in the film room or on the practice field with ALL of his receivers & linemen. Jones has a history of paying QBs much more than they deserve & before others who are more deserving (Emmit sat out 1st 2 games in 1994 before he was paid & Jones later gave Troy an even bigger contract days later). I pray that Jones drafts a quality QB next year(ala' Farve vs. Rodgers) & lets him sit under Romo for a couple of years just in case Romo fails to earn his paycheck.
