That's right; I did it.
I knocked him out of the Top Two and I'm not ashamed!
Look, I'm a huge Tony Romo fan. I'm not one of these schmucks like Joe Theisman that is going to spew nonsensical things about Romo not even being a good quarterback. The fact that he is getting airplay over and over again with NO ONE qualifying him as a diehard former Redskin that never avoids the opportunity to badmouth Dallas infuriates me.
I have not, nor will I probably ever, stopped thinking that Tony Romo has the ability to lead a team to a championship. However, he played a really bad game.
Besides the 3.25 interceptions I thought were his fault (half-fault on first, .75 on the third which I felt was a fumble and full-fault the last two) he had a couple over throws to wide open receivers. He admitted to playing hero ball. He has games like this more than he should and also escapes a handful of games each year that could have played out like this. He has to get better; I pray that he will.
Hopefully, getting knocked down a peg by Chuck Norris will serve as the motivation for the rest of the season. Probably not, but why let that interrupt my inflated sense of self!
Now, obviously, I've been championing the Sean Lee=Chuck Norris meme for quite a while now. I can't help it, I think it's awesome and I enjoy looking for just the right Chuck Norris "fact" each week. Unfortunately, some of the best ones include adult language and I can't use them. Regardless, Chuck is a special, special player. I love the turnovers, but the "Chuck Norris Play of the Day" was when he met Matt Forte in the hole on second and short and just shut the thing down. Sean Lee... this buds for you my man.
|1||OLB||1||5 sacks, 3 FF: projected for the year = defensive MVP. Yet, some ESPN NFC East guy is saying Mychal Kendricks is playing better. LOL, WUT?|
|2||Sean Lee||ILB||3||Chuck Norris sleeps with a night light. Not because Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, but because the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris|
|3||Tony Romo||QB||2||Romo isn't to blame for all his picks, he doesn't deserve all of the criticism. He also doesn't deserve all of the "head in the sand" support, either.|
|4||WR||5||Clearly the second most talented receiver, yet the only one worth trusting at this point.|
|5||OLB||7||This team survived the loss of several defensive starters and still played lock down defense. Until Spencer went out. Doubtful it's coincidence.|
|6||RB||6||According to PFF, Murray had more yards after contact (34), than total rushing yards (24) against Chicago. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot offensive line!|
|7||TE||13||Witten being back to his normal self for Romo is like Spongebob Squarepants/Patrick reunited happiness.|
|8||CB||4||Yikes. Blip on the radar… blip on the radar…|
|9||LT||20||What a wasted bounce back game. Held the Chicago DE's in check while the Dept. Of The Interior allowed assaults against the Cowboys most prized natural resource.|
|10||WR||8||What do you do when you're most talented player, by far, is a liability?|
|12||LG||10||No debate here; the left is clearly winning while the right is clearly struggling.|
|14||DE||12||Hatcher's pressures on the QB have gone down each successive game. Needs to step it up.|
|15||TE||21||His run blocking has been great in 2012; yet he played eight snaps against the Bears. Huh?|
|16||C||22||Decent protection, but was getting collapsed on run plays. Might have been his last start at center.|
|17||CB||17||Notwithstanding the Hester TD, not much to complain about in regards to the rook's overall game. The picks will come.|
|18||PK||19||When "Split'Em" is only on the field for two non-kickoffs, the masses are not going to be happy.|
|19||CB||14||Dallas geared up to stop the run and left Jenks on the bench (16 snaps). Gave up a bad seam completion to a TE though.|
|20||DE||16||Another Cowboys DE that was stone-walled in the pass rush by a supposedly sorry o-line.|
|21||SS||18||Recovering. Gotta be. Right? I mean… that's gotta be the explanation for Monday, right? Gerald?|
|22||NT||25||Run stuffer that just can't do what Rat does. Will stay in rotation however, too good against the run.|
|23||WR||15||Naw, player. Can't have the ball riccochet off you like a Teflon Don. Not in the red zone, not cool at all.|
|24||QB||28||Who said he'd only get action if Romo was hurt? Pride? That counts? OK, carry on.|
|25||OLB||23||Remember last week when I said that Butler's Run D was improved? Nope? Me neither. Ugh.|
|31||FB||29||What are we paying him for again?|
|33||RT||24||And then we're gonna find our best friend Doug, And then we're gonna give him a best friend hug...Dougggg, Dougggg, OHH, Douggg, Dougie, Dougie, Doug, Doug.|
|34||S||34||22 yards per catch against? Ewww.|
|37||RG||39||Go away. I'll pay you.|
|42||P||N/A||Good job, good effort.|
|45||SS||44||The ridiculous anticipation for his rookie debut is sooooo set up to fail.|
