    JMO (and I've said this all along) but he was hurt early in the season and he never did get back to where he was. It was clear on his deep throws something was missing. I don't know if this was related to his back or not. Hopefully we some of the missing zip on his long passes in preseason.

    Before someone comes rushing in with TR's stats ( I am a TR fan) but do acknowledge the lack of zip (deep balls) and that he could improve on his physical conditioning; especially since he is getting older and will be required if he is to maintain a high level of play.

    I'm guessing they don't want him torquing his lower back.

    Look we get it, you joined the Crossfit squad at your local gym and now you're the guru on Sports Training, unfortunately while you were drinking your post-workout berry shake and smelling your own farts you forgot to realize you have no background in sports medicine, and it's obvious.

    Your comment on arm strength being related to how "fit" you look should be a clue to everyone you're clueless on the topic. I played with a lot of guys that played D1 baseball that could bench up over 300 on bench and were gym rats, didn't mean they were going on the mound and tossing it 95 mph. Look at pitchers today and look at Tom Brady, Jay Cutler, guys who had cannons in their careers and they look like the old guys you see on the elliptical at the gym. There is little to no correlation of gym strength to arm strength so that comment is irrelevant. Maybe his arm strength wasn't as high because of something else? Shocking that the real reason may not fit your agenda I know.

    Romo is about to be 34, he's not "adding muscle mass and losing BF". First, that's hard for anyone to do, even a 25 year old male. Secondly, anyone that pounds weights in the weight room knows when you're lifting heavy you can hurt yourself, tendons/ligaments etc. can be reoccuring issues, a linebacker/dlineman can play with a nagging shoulder/elbow issue, a QB probably can't. Just goes to show that no matter how deep lunges you do in your spandex Livestrong shorts, you still have a long ways to go in your fitness knowledge.

    Don't worry, I know you'll probably respond with some kind of opinion that completely defies logic and science,but makes sense in your warped realm of reason, entangled in a web of narcissism, elevated self-worth, and ineptitude so I won't bother responding to it.

    As far as the picture goes, looks to me like he's getting back in football shape playing some full-court ball. I'd much rather my QB be able to play a day of full-court ball before offseason starts instead of attempting to put up a new max in the weight room. Tony knows what he needs to do to get ready for the season, the haters are welcome to google image pictures of Kaepernick or their QB of choice to satisfy their craving for pectorals.

    Romo's so fat, he was the inspiration for the movie Armageddon.

    Listen Romo fanboy, I'm a stakeholder at a high school athlete performance center in Houston. I've worked out regularly since I was 15. You're little rant is not impressing anyone over here brother. If he can reach, extend, bend for shots/rebounds in basketball then he can also do some weightlifting. Second, Ben and Skin are two of Romo's best friends in the DFW media. They even hang out outside of work. They confirmed through a sources close to Romo (possibly even him) that there was nothing physically wrong with Romo when he went through that tough stretch in the middle of the season. I know you Romo fanboys have been trying like hell to attach this imaginary injury to him but nobody is buying it. CONFIRMED via Romo's good friends Ben/Skin, nothing was wrong with him. Lastly, if you don't think weightlifting is incorporated into a quarterback's regimen for arm strength purposes, then you have no clue about high-performance strength training. There are always exceptions to the rule (even though Brady is much more developed than his Combine pic), but for the most part a quarterback can improve their arm strength by undertaking a regimen that works on building strength in the core, legs, and upper body. Romo's done it in the past, every top QB in the country is has done it.

    I'm not trying to be argumentive but wouldn't playing a pick up game be as exerting on his body as anything he could do football related? I realize he's not LeBron but he would be running on a wood floor, bending, jumping & all the things basketball players do.

    Guys that play pick up at gyms..isn't that a pretty darn good workout?

    and you are going overboard acting as if you know what Romo work out schedule is. How long have you been playing QB in the NFL? Are you coming off a back surgery? Romo is working David Cutcliffe who worked with Peyton Manning after coming off neck surgery and doing what he is supposed to be doing

    I didn't call you obsessive. I didn't call you anything. You're just wrong. We all are at times. On this topic you are.

    One serious injury. The cyst removal was not that serious. The Cowboys were cautious and it clearly did not affect him. He didn't miss a single game due to that injury and he performed at a level few can. So you can lay off the doom and gloom of how serious it was. I don't mind caution about his overcoming the current serious injury, but even there his physique right now post surgery is not indicative of squat and this entire thread is nothing but silly at best.

    Oh, and don't act like Super Bowl winning QBs have all been cut. Bart Starr, Len Dawson, Earl Morrall, Terry Bradshaw, Ken Stabler, Jim Plunkett, Jim McMahon, Phil Simms, Mark Rypien, Trent Dilfer, Tom Brady, Brad Johnson, Pig Pen Ruthlessraper, and Eli Manning all have won Super Bowls without being all Greek god. Many of them more than one. Plunkett and Pig Pen destroy your thread theme without me saying a word. Plunkett especially because he was 33 and 36 when he and his fat butt took the Raiders to Championships

    Sonny Jurgenson and Billy Kilmer...Im sure there are others....had great careers into their mid-30s, looking like their diet consisted of hot dogs and beer.

    Translation: I'm not a doctor, athletic trainer, or otherwise privy to Tony Romo's medical status, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
