Romo is getting skewered...



I've kept pretty quiet the past 2 days, because I really didn't have much to say after that loss on Sunday. Romo deserves the criticism he's getting, and he shouldn't be surprised about getting it after that horrible interception, but tonight I find myself wondering if the coverage has gone overboard. It seems like it has gotten to the level of character assassination?

I've seen clips here and there about Romo from all the usual media sources, but the stuff that ESPN is doing to the guy is just plain over the top. They're running his commercials from 4-1/2 years ago...and I just heard Kordell Stewart just rip into Romo.

If it had been Aikman, Steve Young, or Dilfer, I would have accepted it, because these guys have credibility. But when you roll out a guy who was nothing more than a novelty act, and wishes he had Romo's career, and have this guy talk the trash he's talking, it's ridiculous...I literally wanted to go slap the smugness from his face...

The underlying theme is that Romo consistently loses us games in the 4th quarter, and this isn't true...I've watched every one of Romo's games, and I can only remember 2 more games like the one on Sunday. One was the Seattle playoff game, and the other was the frozen Steeler game a couple of years ago. Other than that, we've been competitive to the 4th quarter  for all but 4-5 games in all of his starts. The criticism on him shouldn't be that he isn't clutch, but that he gets sloppy/too aggressive at times.

The worst part about all this is that there are Cowboy fans that buy into the false rhetoric...
