PLAYERS: Tony Romo
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys

I admit up front I am trolling Tony Romo. I like Romo a lot and I don’t think the Cowboys would necessarily be better without him. But, this is a show and prove league and your legacy is made in pressure pack games and the playoffs. Romo has come up short in both. He is a pretty good golfer and he had the lead heading into the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, but alas he and his partner lost it and ended up finishing third. Ironically, the Cowboys finished third in the NFC East as well.

  • Seems like Romo is snakebit.
  • Of course Romo "blowing" the lead had nothing to do with his partners performace right? Finishing 3rd in a big tournament like this is still pretty darn good. I bet Romo and is partner beat a lot of other big names playing in this tournament.
  • Romo may find lightening in a bottle one of these days but its just not very likely givne the coaching and players around him. There is a reason why he is one of the most "hated" "least admired" atheletes and that is becasue he does nothing to embellish his own public image. Jason Whitten is not perfectr but he sets a great example with his off-field work and dedication to the game. Roma, on the otherhand, goes out and plays golf. Not critical of his playing golf and everybody deserves some downtime but this activity just does not send a positive message about dedication and self-evaluation, self-improvement, and leadership. It would seem as if the he really does not care and as a result he over-relies on his God-given talents (and he has a lot), but he does not do nearly enough to improve them and that is what people don't like. He will make plays but he is also prone to mistakes, always at the most critical juncture. He is the second coming of Craig Morton--does anybody remember his Cowboy days??
