You are sick and tired of being sick and tired of a sinister, elaborate media plot that continually "protects" Tony Romo, even when he does something real stupid, and the other team either ends up with the football or, in a far too common occurrence this season, ends up with a pick six.
Personally, I stand accused of being involved in this Romo protection scheme, but it goes much higher, reaching all the way to Babe on radio and Troy on TV.
"It's always the fault of somebody else, not Romo," that's your scream. [View Full Quote] No, not always. But sometimes.The bottom line for this season on Tony is he had a great game to open the season in the Meadowlands, and since then he's been mediocre to awful. Obviously way too many turnovers have been involved.
Is it all his fault? No. But does the turnover column change? No.
The boiling point, of course, was reached last weekend at The Big Yard. For all you "sick and tired" people, let us quickly review that turnover-fest.
The Giants won by scoring 29 points. Twenty-three of those points came on Cow turnovers. Seventeen of those points can be traced directly to three of the four interceptions thrown by Romo and the fourth one ended the most critical and disappointing drive of the game.
For guidance here, I turned to The Man Who Watches Film.
A brief background explanation on The Man Who Watches Film: He once was an assistant coach for the Cowboys and also a scout in the organization, but that was in the '90s. He has no ties to Romo. And since the '90s, no ties to Jason Garrett, nor to the organization.
He is The Man Who Watches Film. And then says what he sees.
Here's what he saw against the Giants:
Wow, finally a half way decent editorial from Galloway. I'm impressed.
