The Tony Romo Era
The Kyle Orton Era

Officially official.

I always knew Romo had Brokeback tendencies, but this is a little more literal than I anticipated.

Didn't Garrett say that they're waiting for test to come back tomorrow before they decide who they'll play?

Officially official.


The crazy thing is Orton is the only backup QB they have on their roster OR their practice squad.  His backup this weekend will be fresh free agent.

If he really has a herniated disk, he's not playing football for quite a while.

OK, but according to Garrett, they don't know that yet.

Monday - Romo out for rest of the season.

Wednesday - Doctors determine Romo cannot make back condition worse by playing.

Friday - Romo vows to play through pain.

Saturday - Garrett says decision to play up to Romo.

Sunday - Romo starts - Cowboys take 27-3 lead against Eagles - Philadelphia scores three fourth quarter touchdowns in fourth quarter - third down and three with 1:54 to go Romo throws pass to Bryant that is intercepted - Philadelphia scores winning touchdown.

Later Sunday - ESPN talks about Romo's incredible performance playing though pain - "Yes they lost, but have we ever seen such a performance such as this", says Chris Berman, "I ask you Tom Jackson, after 23 years together, have we ever seen anything like this?" - "Ummm, ummm, Boomer, ummm ummm 23 years, brother, ummm ummm."

Monday - Super Bowl LLI awarded to Dallas.

I hope he plays.  Its a weird phenomena that he gets so much blame for his teams performance.  Remember when he went blow for blow with peyton Farking manning the norse god of quarterbacking?  That was pretty impressive but all you here about is the picks at the end of the game.  Has there been any other players that have been ROMO-nized like this?

Can we do it to Carmelo Anthony?  That guy farks up in the clutch constantly and also only plays on offense.  There was a game a couple weeks ago where he was inbounded the ball,  down a couple with just a few seconds left, and instead of calling timeout he ballhogged down the court and chucked up an off balance three over two defenders.  The media completely blasted coach Woodson and he squarly took all of the blame on himself instead of pulling a kung fu Ginger blame flip at the press conference.  If anyone deserves this shiat its Melo.

Anyway I'm hoping Romo can play and he beats the Eagles and gets a playoff win and a fair measure of ROMO-demption.  Most of that is just entertainment greed.  I pretty much just want the NFC East to remain a hilarious dumpster fire.  I'm hohoping they trade Bobby Tripod and keep the Shanahanigans going in DC, Ginger and Romo go into full meltdown, best Manning setting the pick record and dogkiller retaking the starting job in philly while defenses figure out little pete carrols offense.

Maybe it's the narrator in my head, but this is making me giggle so much.  I make no light of back issues because I know I will have them since they are hereditary in my family.  If Orton does the job well enough to get them the NFC East, hooray.

Shefter at ESPN and LaConfra at CBS are saying he's out.  There is only one person saying that he's not andthat "person" doesn't have a soul.

Maybe one day the Cowboys will invest in team doctors and access to an MRI within 24 hours.

If anything it's the opposite.  They're keeping the Romo card in play as long as they can.

He had his MRI this morning. If I'm not mistaken, the Cowboys have their own giant magnet at their facility.

Also, IF this is some sort of trick to keep the Eagles guessing (kind of doubt it, actually), it's no different than what the Patriots do every single week for Tom Brady.  Actually, it is a bit different since Brady's listed as questionable, no matter what.

You know Orton hates this. He got a primo backup job that lets him get drunk and bang skanky Texas ladies while Romo gets all the heat, but now he's got to try? Yeesh.
 
2013-12-23 08:04:18 PM
If Romo played and lost this game he might have to be bounced as a sacrifice. As is he won't play and the Cowboys will stick with their guy again and have another average season with an average quarterback next season.

That's the funny thing about playoff success - it greatly slants how you're perceived as a player. Romo is a great QB that's made some terrible (and also great) plays down the stretch of games throughout his career. He plays through pain, takes responsibility when things don't go right, and overall seems to be a good leader. I hope he is able to break through in the playoffs one of these years so he can get the credit for being as good as he's been throughout his career.

Csb
One of his best friends works for a friend of mine in his old home town. Said friend never says anything bad about anybody. He ended up being taken out by Tony a few times when he was dating Jessica Simpson. I asked if she is as dumb as she appears. His reply "she seems like a very nice person". Me:" seriously, is she that stupid as she is made out to be?" Him"she is a very nice and kind person".

Of course, she has a billion dollar fashion empire, so....

Average is Texas is fat, just like every other state in the south. I'm also guessing you're fat.
