Down and Distance:
When Tony Romo signed a huge contract extension last week (to the tune of six years and $108 Million, $55 Million guaranteed and a $25 Million signing bonus), everyone had their own opinion on whether he was deserving of such a big deal or not. The latest person to have his voice be heard is actually a teammate, and not a small-time player at that.
On Sirius XM radio on Thursday, Dallas Cowboys LB DeMarcus Ware didn’t pull any punches when it came to whether or not he felt like Romo deserved that kind of payday.
“I feel like everybody is deserving to whatever is given to him, 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 that is going to be the quarterback that is going to take us to the next level.”
Romo has been successful with Dallas in the past, but has had issues when it comes down to crunch time. Romo has led his Dallas Cowboys to the postseason three times Since being named the starter in 2006 and has been selected to the pro-bowl three times as well (in 2006, 2007, and 2009 respectively). In those three postseason trips, he only has one postseason win (a 2009 wild card round victory over NFC East rival, the Philadelphia Eagles).

What do you think? With Romo’s lack of success in the postseason, did he deserve a $100 Million+ extension?

When the Cowboys announced last week that they and Tony Romo agreed on a six-year contract extension with $55 million in guaranteed money, the world shat white-hot searing ridicule all over them. And while it’s true that Romo doesn’t suck nearly as much as his staunchest haters will tell you, he has definitely earned his reputation of coming apart in huge moments.
Tony Romo signed a massive contract extension worth $108 million with the Dallas Cowboys last week. Considering he has only one playoff win in seven seasons as a starting quarterback, many people (see: McNabb, Donovan) feel that Jerry Jones gave Romo way more money than he is worth.

Unsurprisingly, Tony Romo’s recent six-year, $108 million mega contract extension brought about familiar criticism. Romo became the richest player in Dallas’ illustrious history, but many fans and media types questioned if he was worth that kind of money.
Phil Simms seems to think so.
In an appearance on SiriusXM Radio Tuesday, the former Giants quarterback defended the current...
If having Tony Romo as his quarterback was a strong enough relationship to once famously bring him to tears, then Terrell Owens' head just might explode if he ever got the chance to play with Tom Brady.
And after pictures surfaced on Thursday of a practice session that Owens, Brady and new Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola at the USC practice facility, could a Brady-to-Owens...
In the NFL world of big contracts and high expectations, teams often find themselves locked into a deal where they are wildly overpaying a player for the current performance.Sometimes those teams make the decision to try and re-work the deal or even cut the player all together. Other times a player has too much guaranteed money to make such a move.When a guy like Joe Flacco gets...
This week, Juice This looks at why Joe Flacco is overpaid (uh, no, we mean, why Aaron Rodgers is underpaid) and why Tony Romo owes me about half of that $130-plus million he just got. And if so many players are coming out about coming out, then why has the most-vocal of the coming-out voices, in essence, been silenced? Also, catching up with ZZZZ’s and the latest Tim Tebow controversy...
