Despite the poor timing Romo had no choice than to have his back cyst removed. It was becoming a distraction.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback and Super Bowl Party
host extraordinaire Tony Romo won’t participate in organized team activities and is out through the spring because of minor back surgery, the team said on its website.
Romo, who had a cyst removed, should be back and ready to go by the start of training camp, the site said.
“If this was the regular season and I had to go out and lose a game next week, I could,” Romo told “The Dallas Morning News” last week. “This is just about being smart. That’s why I did it now. This will have no effect on training camp. No way will it have an impact. And I still think there’s a good chance I’m on the field for mini-camp, where I can give false hope to Cowboy fans everywhere, like I do annually.”
Leaf vs. Manning - only time will tell who will have had the better career.
With the remainder of his career in question as he recovers from two neck surgeries in 2011, many National Football League pundits would argue that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is already a Hall of Fame-worthy player, and far superior to the other quarterback drafted high in the 1998 NFL draft, Ryan Leaf. Many, but not all
There is still one historian who said last week that it’s not prudent to make the call yet that Manning is better than Leaf, that history will have to decide that once both men have hung up their helmets, and not before.
Tony Romo puts his game face on for another Super Bowl at home.
Dallas—Come this Super Bowl Sunday, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be at the same place he’s been for the last five Super Bowls after taking over for Drew Bledsoe under center: at home hosting a Super Bowl party, and that’s just fine with him.
“There really, truly is no place I’d rather be,” Romo said. “I honestly can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing on Super Bowl Sunday than hosting a few hundred of my closest friends, firing up the barbecue and watching great football. I look forward to it every year.”
This is the sixth straight year, all with Romo as the starting quarterback for Dallas, that he’ll be hosting his party, and each year gets bigger and bigger.
Tony Romo can still find a reason to get excited. In this case, two of his favorite candy bars.
Dallas—A source close to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said the hapless team leader hears all the constant, accurate criticism about him. And simply because all the critics are right, that doesn’t mean Romo should lose the starting position in Dallas, (even though it really does).
“He’s always had to work harder than everybody else,” said the source, who asked that TDQ not reveal her unique position on the training staff of the Dallas Cowboys, for fear she, as the only woman on the staff, would lose her job. “So he’s used to trying to prove critics wrong who are actually dead on about what they say about him.”
