Boy oh boy does Tony Romo really screw up sometimes. For those of you who missed the final episode of Hard Knocks last night, Romo got a little ahead of himself, the entire season, and anything the Cowboys have done since 1996 into one nicely formed quote.
“We can fast forward through this preseason, through the regular season, get to the playoffs and get to the Super Bowl or whatever and be there now. But so much of the fun and so much of the excitement is this whole process. I mean, it’s the old saying: The journey is the funnest part.”
Let me be the first to say that what Romo should do is REWIND, because the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback, or anyone on that team, does not have the authority to make statements like that. Maybe I am misinterpreting it, and possibly so, but no one on this team should be talking Super Bowl before a game is even played. Leave that to us.
Believe it or not, I think it is telling that only three or four bloggers in the Fansided Network actually picked the Cowboys to win it all. People have seen enough of the playoff blunders. We fans vividly remember the Seahawks game. I am still not over the loss to the Giants last season, what I consider to be the worst loss I have ever witnessed in my 34 years as a fan.
So, step back, Tony. No need to put more pressure on the team or yourself. Because what we have seen for the last 12 years is no one has been able to handle that pressure very well.
