(Ro)Mo Money, Mo Problems
What’s the worst decision you could make if you have $108 million burning a hole in your bank account?
Throw it away? Invest in the Cyprus banking system? Start an NFL offshoot in Europe?
Well Jerry Jones found the only thing worse than any of those, and that’s signing Tony Romo to another six years.From the looks of it, Romo will be calling JerryWorld his home for the rest of his career. Sorry, Cowboys fans.
It has come to the point where I don’t even know if Jerry Jones wants the Cowboys to do well anymore. Romo has one playoff win under his belt and is getting Tom Brady money. If only he had Tom Brady skill.
On paper, Tony looks decent enough for the roto crowd, but in big games, he’s been a choke artist, thus explaining his 1-3 record in the playoffs. To quote noted quarterback observer Donovan McNabb, “You got to be kidding me.”
Romo isn’t Dallas’s only player that’s gonna be getting a new contract. With Dez Bryant’s 2000 yards in the books, it's a certainty he'll be running a fly pattern to the bank this season. The 'Boys will be throwing a lot of dosh, and even more passes, his way.
The question now, as always, is how many of the latter will get all the way there.
Albert Haynesworth has been put on alert. His title might be in trouble.
