Tony Romo wasn't built in day; it only looks that way to everyone else. We all know how long he's been here, learning in practice and training camp. But he has only started eight games this year and will finish the season with 10 starts. JJT notes this little nugget.
Nice company to be keeping for Romo.
But making the Pro Bowl comes at a price.
Ah yes, the Tuna will definitely have some new ammunition.
DeMarcus Ware is excited about making it.
Ware ranks eighth in the NFC with 7 1/2 sacks and has a pair of touchdowns this season. His selection should help justify where he was picked in the 2005 draft, one spot ahead of Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman.
"I don't care about how he is playing," Ware said. "I am worried about my play and what I can do to make the Cowboys better."
Ha, Ware doesn't get into the Merriman/Ware debate. He's a Cowboy, the other guy isn't; so who cares about the other guy?
Vinny Testaverde gets some more love for helping Romo achieve success. They did work in the film room together, they lifted weights together, all kinds of stuff.
Testaverde still calls Romo, but is finding it harder to get a hold of his old student. But he does leave a message with a few words of wisdom.
"He used to call me," Testaverde joked. "Now I can't get him on the phone. He's big time."
