Mosley's Hashmarks - 1.11.08

Apparently, the NFL's diarrhetic mouth of the south -- also known as Terry Bradshaw -- has decided to air his comments on Tony Romo's trip with Jessica Simpson, her family, Jason Witten & wife, and Bobby Carpenter during the Cowboys "time off."

As if no one else in the media has weighed in on that increasingly tired subject.

But unexpectedly, a writer from BSPN actually came to Romo's defense... somewhat.

I know, I know... it's Matt Mosley, and he doesn't count because he used to cover the Boyz for the, but MM did have some entertaining comments to make regarding Bradshaw in his blog.

Like this sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek quip poking fun with a 70s reference.

Now, the league's moral conscience, Terry Bradshaw, has decided to weigh in on the topic. He's well qualified for this type of thing since Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Tiegs were beating down his door in the 70s.

Man, I remember back in elementary school when I thought Farrah Fawcett was hot and me and one of my buddies had a running debate because he felt that Cheryl Tiegs was more of "a fox (what a "hottie" is in today's vernacular, a "fox" was back in those times)" than my pin up crush... but I digress.

Bradshaw goes on to talk out of both sides of his mouth (now there's a freakin' surprise) with these words.

"For an athlete, there's no time off ... until it's over," Bradshaw told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "You don't take a mental break. Tony is obviously different than me. He's one of the young kids who wears his cap on backward. It's cool. And God bless him. I like the heck out of Tony Romo. I just wouldn't have done what he did. I couldn't allow my mind to go there."

But this is why I love me some Matt Mosley.  He goes on to set the record straight about #9's work ethic.

On Romo's off day Tuesday, he spent about six hours at Valley Ranch. When he first signed with the Cowboys, he used to meet his quarterbacks coach at the facility and throw until well past midnight.

And finally the BSPN blogger goes on to add another less-mentioned point in this paragraph.

Privately, he wonders why his brilliant play this season doesn't earn him the benefit of the doubt. He had two bad games this season. (Three if you count a Washington game the Cowboys didn't try to win).

Looking at what he's accomplished in his short playing career, it's safe to say that Romo's body of work has been consistent for the most part... and with that, it's time for worry wrecks like me to start believin because of what I've seen in about a year and a half from our beloved starting QB.

Let Tony tell you how he really feels about the public scrutiny.

"I don't care about perception," he told reporters Wednesday. "The perception of me doesn't affect me at all. When I say that, I understand that people like to believe everything they read and everything they hear, but I'm comfortable in my own skin and comfortable with who I am as a person and what I've tried to do to get to this point."

And we're comfortable with Tony Romo leading our Dallas Cowboys, Baby!!!
