It won’t be an easy offseason for Tony Romo after losing the sixth elimination game of his career. But Robert Griffin III tried to ease the pain for the Cowboys’ quarterback after the Redskins knocked Romo out of playoff contention.
Griffin headed straight for Romo after Sunday night’s game, and told him to ignore his detractors.
“Hey Tony. I just wanted to say to you, don’t listen to what anybody else is saying about you,” Griffin said to Romo according to Pro Football Talk. “You’re a great quarterback, man. And this game doesn’t mean anything.”
The comments were recorded by NFL Films and will air on Wednesday night’s episode of Inside the NFL. Romo completed 20 of 37 attempts against Washington, with 218 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. The Cowboys were down 21-18 with three minutes left in the game when Romo threw an interception to linebacker Rob Jackson. The Redskins scored a touchdown on the ensuing drive to put the game away.

The Dallas Cowboys will spend another post-season watching the playoff games from home due to their inability to win a game that matters. The culprit of this latest late-season meltdown and person drawing the ire of everyone’s venom is the usual suspect, quarterback Tony Romo.
One Cowboys fan in particular had about enough of Romo’s big game failures that he decided to take matters...
Robert Griffin III is one of the leading candidates for rookie of the year. He's also an all around good guy, and a great teammate. Apparently he is a prankster too. RG3 showed up at the Redskins press conference and posed as a reporter. He caught coach Shanahan off guard, because he didn't realize he was sitting in the crowd. RG3 grabbed the mic and asked his coach...
As we sift through the rubble of another late-season failure, we are constantly reminded that the defense was hit with circumstances that nearly made their tasks impossible by the end of the year. The inside linebackers were different, the safeties were different, and the defensive line was different than what left training camp. Only the 2 outside linebackers and the 2 starting...

really don’t break out of that cycle,” said Jones, who then highlighted the
Herschel Walker trade of 1989. “But how do we somehow...

We have waited for this guy to break out. We have drafted every year to make sure we didn’t miss out on that year where it all comes together for him. 2012 was that year for Dez Bryant.
Bryant started off the season looking like the guy who has disappointed fantasy owners for the last 2 seasons. He looked lost out there, dropping passes...
IRVING, Texas — An elusive player like Robert Griffin III or Vince Young or the like usually leads to really good conversion rates on third down, and for the Texas A&M Aggies, that’s just what they’ve got in signal caller Johnny Manziel.
The Washington Redskins have mastered the NFL’s most important trick in Robert Griffin III‘s rookie season: get hot at the right time. Like the New York Giants last year, the Redskins have worked out all the kinks and are entering the playoffs on a roll.
