Tony Romo is in a unique position this season. With his contract extension he has been handed the keys to the castle that is America's Team--the Dallas Cowboys. Now with those keys come some pretty big expectations, and not just in performance but preparation and responsibility. Simply put--if there wasn't an immense amount of pressure on him before there certainly is now. In the future he might not want to be so direct with the press and insult them like he did during Tuesday's press conference. Romo essentially made sure that the media is going to highlight any and every mistake that he makes this season (not that they already don't...). But don't take my word for it; check his comment for yourself: "I think more than anything I think [the media], not trying to be rude, but you guys don't matter...," Romo said. Well, isn't that special? But that's not all; he attempts to politely explain himself, but still insults them at the same time: "...Saying that, I know you guys all have a job to do and it helps grow the game and there's a lot of talk about the game and it's a wonderful aspect of it, good [and] bad. None of it matters..."  So the press is necessary, but doesn't matter? How then are they necessary? Romo eventually said what he should have led off the conversation with--that you [the players] have to show up and play.  That is easy to agree with. Why he felt the need to talk at length about why whatever the media does is not important is kind of a mystery. It serves no purpose other than to allow him to get something off his chest and make sure that every person in the media room knows where they are in his eyes--secondary at best. If he Romo is able to latch onto his new role with the Cowboys--put in those 'Peyton Manning' type hours as Jerry Jones put it--then he'll be in the clear. However, should he falter whether in his play or in the game plan (since he's involved in making that up too now) it is all going to come down on him--more than it ever did before. [ESPN]
