The Rise and Fall of Tony Romo

Is it still good to be Tony Romo? That's what most thought a month ago. He even won that Turkey award on Thanksgiving. In a crazy turn of events that can only be described as wild, Tony Romo turned a routine hold for a game leading field goal into a bobble and then nearly scramble for a touchdown only to be tackled from behind. Romo makes that hold 99 out of 100 times. Sucks that one time was for a chance to win a playoff game.

Let's not be quick to blame Romo completely on the loss. Blame Terry Glenn who fumbled the ball that led to a safety that really turned the momentum. Blame the all the stupid Dallas penatlies. Blame the referee for the bad spot that would have given Dallas a first down and a chance to run the clock down to kick a game winning field goal (then again, anything could have happened). Blame Martin Gramatica, who if you see the replay again, put a half ass sissy block on eventualy Romo tackler Jordan Babineaux. Gramtica had a chance to throw his body in the way. Instead he tried to push him, which did not slow Babineaux down and maybe even helped propel him towards Romo. So you see lots of blame to go around.

The rise and fall of Tony Romo. He got too Hollywood too fast. He started 5-1. He goes from Jessica Simpson to Carrie Underwood. He was the most eligible bachleor in Dallas. He makes the Pro Bowl (how smart does that look now?). Then he's 1-4 in his last five games. This is like the career of Macaulay Culkin, Corey Feldman, Ralph Macchio, or Corey Haim. Shot to stardom like a rocket to Uranus and falling just as fast as this person. He'll bounce back. I'm sure Carrie will help him feel all better.
