Romo The Scapegoat

I must admit, I didn’t catch much sports this weekend. Why? If I may quote the movie Grandma’s Boy, “maybe it’s cause I was with THREE chicks!” I missed the majority of sports this weekend while road-tripping 1,000 miles through Northern California, Nevada, and Oregon. After I returned, I was able to catch the Monday Night Football matchup between the Redskins and Cowboys. Despite a Cowboys win, Tony Romo has come under fire for everything from poor decision making to yelling at teammates, from not caring to wearing his hat backwards. The Cowboys are 2-1 after wins over the 49ers and Redskins, so why is Tony Romo taking so much heat the day after? The first thing I can defend is yelling at his center after his FOURTH bad snap of the game. If Tom Brady did that, he’d be called a leader. Romo, though, is a bad teammate. If my coworkers weren’t 40 and 50-something women, I’d be doing the same thing. He also makes bad decisions. True, that’s been his MO, but THEY WON THE GAME. He doesn’t care. Well, if he didn’t care, he wouldn’t be yelling at his teammate for making crucial mental errors. Lastly, he wears his hat backwards. If I had the time and resources, I’d list every other QB who’s been spotted donning a backwards cap. Since I can’t, I’ll simply suggest that maybe he’s trying to observe the game better. After all, how can you see the entire field with a hat bill obstructing your view? I’d be the first in line to harp on the Cowboys, but what about all the other QB’s who have a sub-.500 record? Michael Vick complained that he’s being targeted and he’s catching less heat than Romo. Who’s talking about Donovan McNabb or Matt Cassell? Nobody. I’m not sure when Tony Romo became the most ridiculed QB in the NFL, but can’t we at least wait until Dallas isn’t playing well???

    The expectations are always high when the idiot analysts out still make the franchise as “America’s Team” . But since Romo has been the quarterback he’s yet to lead the team and win a meaningful game in the postseason. Granted , as he stacks up the stats that now make him of club’s most successful quarterback in their history what if anything does that indicate to you ?

    As for Monday night’s game that was a disaster by no stretch of the imagination .

    It’s definitely the hat. I never liked guys that wear it backwards, never will. Why does the hat look so awkwardly tilted when it’s on backwards opposed to forwards!?! It’s really something that is an unforgivable fashion faux pas…

      That hat is only one reason Romo takes so much crap. It is just one reason he looks like a complete doofus.

      Know who else wore his hat backward? Pre-rape Rapelisberger.

      Case closed.
