Minutes after the game ended, the media scrambled voices and words together in absolute admiration for number nine. Yet, less than seven days ago, they were busy roasting him for dinner.

He was the villain. This is what Tony does. He has the propensity to throw interceptions inside three minutes of the fourth quarter. Get rid of him. And pull more stats justifying why.

No problem, it’ll be done.

What gives?

For Tony Romo, it’ll never be fair. Never. Even with a herniated disk in the lumbar region, which calls for surgery (3-4 month healing time window).

But on a day that clocked in at December, statics, injuries, and emotions didn’t matter. Not for Tony. All that mattered was a win.

A win that didn’t come easy. Not against a crowd treating the game like their Super Bowl. A crowd yelling to spoil dreams. A crowd yelling for a soon to retire London Fletcher (LB).

But Tony Romo, did it. Despite the loud world. Despite the limp. Despite the back.

He was the hero. This is what Tony does. He has the propensity to throw touchdowns inside the three-minute mark of the fourth quarter. Keep him. And pull more stats justifying why.

And with all that poppycock swirling around, the fat lady, waiting for the world to make up their mind, has decided to quit her job. For good.

Good riddance.

Now is Tony’s chance. Suit up. Please.

    I don’t know what you’re talking about!

    Remember what happened last year when RGIII played but shouldn’t have. A herneated disc could get real serious in a heart beat if he goes down the wrong way. The risk is too great. Don’t play him.

  • Realistfan

    Wow. Well written.
    It may not be in his, or the team’s best interest, long term, to play. We’ll see.

    • Michael Vu

      Yeah, I know. Makes more sense for him to sit. But if he can endure, endure and win we could.

      And thanks for your compliment.

    Great article! What all true Romo fans believe. Been a Cowboys fan for 35+ years and understand players come and go and their impact on the success the team and impression on fans vary greatly. I don’t think I’m alone in CowboysNation in saying Romo is one of a handful of Cowboys that have reached all time favorite status

      I must confess, over the years, I’ve loved Romo more and more. How can you not? Sure he has broke your heart. But he certainly has won it, too.

      And the beating he takes from the world does not tail in the success he has had, which is a ton. The way he has fought adversity is admirable. Even role model like, to me anyways.
