Man, that Drew Pearson is one opinionated individual. Just last month he was ripping Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, now he’s moved on to ripping people for not ripping Tony Romo. The former Dallas Cowboys great was appearing on KESN-FM’s Ben & Skin Show when he blasted Nowitzki for the Mavericks leader issuing a sympathetic tweet directed to the heavily-scrutinized Cowboys quarterback and fellow Dallas star athlete. If it wasn’t enough to overreact by taking Nowitzki to task over a harmless tweet, get a look at how he denigrated the game of basketball during his mini-rant (via Game On!):

Hey Dirk, this is football, this ain’t basketball. This is a real game where a lot of emotions play a lot more heavily into what you’re doing out there as a professional. I respect Dirk, there’s no question, and I know where he’s coming from because he has sustained the criticism and now the criticism has stopped because they won an NBA championship. So what he should be telling Tony is if you want to stop the criticism, quit making those kinds of mistakes and lead your team to a championship.

Interesting. Football is a “real game” that involves a player’s emotions playing into what’s going on in between the lines a lot more heavily. While most of what Pearson says has some validity, I am pretty sure most would agree that emotions play just a big of role in a player’s performance on the court as it does on the gridiron. If that wasn’t the case, Darko Milicic would be a perennial All-Star.

  • Interesting, earlier today i posted on the story about Farve running his mouth about Aaron Rodgers. I commneted it was mostly because he is a has been who is looking for attention and apparently getting it since someone picked up the story and ran with it.
    Now the ink isn't dry on my previous post and here comes Drew Pearson out of the closet ripping Dirk for supporting Romo. What the hell business is it of Pearson if Dirk chooses to support Romo?
    Attention, Attention Attention!
    Go sit down Drew
  • dude, u write a blog. talk about attention whores.jeez
  • I agree with Hawkeye.
    Dirk wanted to show support for Tony. Nothing wrong with that.
    If Drew wants to knock Romo he can choose to do so. Just get on the yo-yo bandwagon along with half of Texas.
  • I am a long time cowboy fan and i am upset that tony romo keeps having these issues is anyone trying to help him this has been going on far to long one thing dallas has always had was a great QB, running back and tight end and wide receiver i wish Tony Romo was the guy but he is not i have to agree with some of what drew pearson has said the have a bye then they have to face new england don't want to see that game but i do what i always do hope for the best but expect the worst i will always be a cowboy fan no matter what
  • I have been a Cowboy fan since birth. My entire family is from The great state of Texas. In my opinion anybody supporting that Choke Artist(Romo) is a fool. We are reliving the Danny White years OMG. It almost seems he is throwing games on purpose. Maybe he is pulling a Pete Rose and laying some bets. If he was I would have a little more respect for him. I suggest all Dallas fans send mail to Jones telling him to bench that BUM. or we become Houston Fans.
