Why are you taking the blame for the Dallas Cowboys 33-31 loss to the New York Giants, Tony Romo?
Do you think this shows your newfound leadership skills? Or do you think it impresses the fans because they’ll believe you’re the only guy in the locker room who has the kahunas to tell a room of press people that “It’s my fault.”
Here’s a d-bag who commends Romo for taking the blame. He’s obviously not a Cowboys fan or he wouldn’t be commending Romo for saying the loss was his fault because the fans have seen the act before. They saw it last year. They saw it the year before. They saw it the year he took over for Drew Bledsoe. From mishandling the ball on a crucial field goal to throwing numerous interceptions on bad throws in crucial games, the Dallas Cowboys fans have seen this act before.
It usually starts like this:
Press hypes up the matchup (pick any NFC East opponent) and talks about key players and matchups.
Cowboys come out of the locker room in center field with scanty dressed women rattling their rear-ends in cages on the third deck.
Their opponents hate the glam. They are pumped.
The Cowboys look like bouncers in a strip club wearing funny uniforms. It’s football night.
And even if they play well, and keep the game close, Romo does something silly. Game over.
Now, don’t get me wrong: Jason Garrett is an idiot. Felix Jones fumbled the ball. The defense didn’t have one sack. They missed more than a dozen tackles. Flozell Adams had another penalty.
But hey, at least the stadium was flashy and entertaining. It was fun waiting to see if a punter was going to hit the video board.
End of game. With 4 seconds on the clock, the kick was good, even after Wade Phillips pulled what we all know is a dirty trick in the NFL and should be banned. He did it. I personally think any coach who pulls that stunt should be fired and fined. It’s a desperation move and I don’t ever want to see a Cowboys coach do it again.
So, why is Romo taking the blame again? Doesn’t it sound like this was a failure of the entire team, despite the score showing it was very close, and even a game the Cowboys dominated at times.
Yes, they dominated the running game. 257 yards. Both Marion Barber and Felix Jones scored. When Tashard Choice got the ball, sometimes he looked like Barber, in the way he was running into opposing defenders.
This was a team and coaching failure, plain and simple.
But it’s still getting old hearing Tony take the blame.
