    “Just don’t care what everybody thinks,” [SIZE=+0]James told The Dallas Morning News. [/SIZE]“You work on your craft and at the end of the day, if you went out there and gave it all you had and you laid it on the line for you and your teammates, you can sleep comfortably at night.”

    “Don’t watch ESPN,” James told the Dallas Morning News. “All these so-called everyone knows what to do but they never put on a uniform, trying to tell you what to do. It’s not about that. I think Tony’s at a point now in his career where he’s one of the great quarterbacks we have in our game. It’s because of his work ethic.”

    "Prior to James joining the Miami Heat, he was criticized for his inability to win a championship. After back-to-back titles, James has silenced the majority of his critics."

    You think the team itself had something to do with winning a championship and maybe not James alone? Kind of how team sports works out, as good as an individual may be it still comes down to the other parts of the team putting it together to win it all. In my view more so in football than any other team sport

    It's not as though the writer said LeBron won it all by himself. He was the regular season MVP and Finals MVP in both championship seasons and thus has silenced his critics, I think that's all they were saying.

    Sigh, James is 1 of 5 starters to impact a game where as Romo is one of 22(not including ST's).

    LeBron also had to join a loaded team to win, maybe Romo needs to as well. That says to me it is a team game and not one individual can win it by himself, especially in football.

    Good advice from James but I am sure it is much easier to say this now when he has a couple of rings under his belt. Keep striving for that Mt. Rushmore LeBron, keep striving...............

    When someone says "he was criticized for his inability to win a championship" were the others? Yes he is very talented and yet it still comes down the the players around you to win no matter how good you are as an individual. Fact is Cleveland could not win a championship, Maimi did with James and a host of other talented ball players. Myself I think it is foolish to critisize an individual in a team sport for not winning a championship. This is not the PGA or Tennis where it is all on you to win or not. In the case of Romo he is a very good player but he can only control so much. Unlike James, Romo does not play defense as well as offense. Dallas offense was 5th in the league in points scored yet set franchise lows on defense but the finger gets pointed at Romo? To me that is silly.

    You're only as good as the people who are around you. Team, team and team. Just ask Russel Wilson.

    That's solid advice pertaining to Chris Berman and his associate mouthpieces, but it loses some value when you think about ESPN guys like Tom Jackson, Cris Carter, Mike Ditka, etc. Maybe it's more "Don't let ESPN crawl under your skin" than don't watch.

    It's really the height of stupidity to criticize a player like James for an 'inability to win a championship.' Really. People are so dumb sometimes when you get the groupthink going.

    He could be responding to folks like Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless.

    I agree. I think Romo taking heat for team failure is a reach or listening to the media when they said Peyton Manning could not win the big game after coming out of Tenn. Fact is they can't win the big game that is what teams do. Tenn failed to beat Florida State in the big game well maybe because Florida State was just the better team but in no way should that be on Peyton as an individual. Having said that players should be scrutinized for their own play but in my view not for the failure of an entire team.

    Those two are associate mouthpieces of ESPN as well.

    I heard Lebron has also recently joked about playing TE for the Cowboys. That's an interesting idea. Does he even need to go through the draft? Maybe he does, Dallas could draft him with their last 7th round pick (they've got 6 of them) and have the rights to him that way. I've heard of worse ideas. I really doubt a freak of nature like that has trouble catching a football or running a route.

    Good advice from LeBron... The problem is that they play two entirely different sports and impact their teams in completely different aspects. Plus, Romo is no where near as good at football as James is at basketball. Apples and oranges.

    Romo doesn't need advice regarding the media and public image. Guy is a true class act. Doesn't have a twitter like so many athletes do, and probably doesn't watch anything on TV. Good for him.

    Lebron is the one that made it a loaded team.

    So is the message here that Romo needs to go sign with a contender when he becomes a free agent?

    Lebron won championships, just not with the team that drafted/signed him initially.....................will Romo?

    Bosch and Wade had a little something to do with it.

    It is much easier for an individual to take over a game in basketball than it is in football.

    True, but w/o Lebron they dont accomplish anything special. Wade is broken down. The rest of the roster besides the Big 3 is nothing special. Its not like Lebron "joined" a loaded team.
