Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo Owns Eli Manning and World Champion Giants


Dallas Cowboy QB Tony Romo walked in to Met Life stadium in New York with a weak offensive line, an injured Jason Witten, a 1st time starter as his #3 wide receiver, and took the Super Bowl winning Quarterback, Eli Manning, to school.

It was a long and frustrating final few days for Cowboys fans leading up to that week one match-up against the world champions. It seemed like every time you turned on ESPN or the NFL network, all you heard was how great Eli Manning is and how bad the Giants were going to beat the Cowboys. How Tony Romo can’t beat Eli. That Eli owns Tony Romo. Tony Romo can’t win big games, Tony Romo can’t play in the clutch etc. Well, golly gee, Eli Manning and his Giants got “OWNED”. Yup, by none other than Tony Romo.

Please refer back to my previous article “Tony Romo Sets Tone For Elite QB Play”. The first reason being, for all of the TV analysts who are now afraid to show themselves in public because they still have humble pie all over their now blush red faces. It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how well Romo plays, these guys just love to take shots at him. It’s a funny thing when you think about all of the active 1st round quarterbacks in the NFL (many taken 1st overall) that aren’t worthy to carry his shoulder pads.

Why don’t these “experts” criticize all the QB’s taken in the 1st round that are terrible compared to Romo? Gosh it’s simple, because these are the same media guys who never stopped talking about how great those 1 round QB’s were. Can they turn around now and bust on their own poster boys? Of course not. They have to turn all of the frustration (from the crow they are eating for missing on those guys) toward the undrafted guy who has consistently shown them up. The funny thing is, these are the same experts who missed on both Tony Romo and Tom Brady!

The hilarious thing was, after the game when the Giants lost, the only thing these ‘analysts’ (who had been talking all week about how great Eli is and that he owns Tony Romo) could say is, “Well, you really can’t blame this loss on Eli. His defense wasn’t playing well and there were dropped passes etc”.

Really? I mean, Really? I seem to recall Eli blowing an easy pass for a TD that would have changed the whole outcome of the game. In fact, had he not overthrown his receiver, this game could have ended up in over time. You see, in many of Romos’ losses, he had them up 2 scores in the 4th quarter and the defense couldn’t stop anyone. There have been many games that would have turned out differently if a pass hadn’t been dropped.

If Patrick Crayton hadn’t dropped a TD pass, Romo has another playoff win. If Austin hadn’t lost one in the lights the Cowboys were in the playoffs last year. The “IF’s” could go on forever. Ya know what the difference is? These so called experts will use the same problems Romo has had to defend the guy they praised all week, but when the shoe is on the other foot, they blame Romo. The fact is, if that had been Romo that over threw his receiver, they would have blamed the whole outcome of the game on him. I can hear it, “Tony Romo can’t play in the clutch”. Romo can’t win big games. The truth of the matter is, Eli choked at a crucial moment of the game and threw a bad pass! The fact remains, if a SF rookie hadn’t dropped a kick deep in his own territory, Eli Manning never sees the Super Bowl!

My sentiments to these self proclaimed experts are, KISS MY ROSY ROYAL RED AMERICAN BUTT! I wonder if bias and hypocrisy are contagious among TV analysts? The bottom line is, I don’t need to do the play by play this time. You all saw the stellar performance by Tony Romo: He completed 22 of 29 passes (75.9%) for 307 yards and 3 touchdowns for a passer rating of 129.5.  The amazing part is, he did this while running for his life. This is compared to Eli Manning who completed 21 of 32 passes (65.6%) for 213 yards, and 1 touchdown for a passer rating of 94.9. At the end of the day, the final score was: Dallas Cowboys 24 New York Giants 17.

So all I have to say to the talking heads of the media is: Who Got Owned?
