Former Cowboys CB/WR Deion Sanders took another shot at current Cowboys QB Tony Romo Monday night. After someone tweeted him that “his boy” Romo was messing up, Sanders replied with:
“Aint my boy! Lol”
The criticism for Tony Romo has been overwhelming, and many are skeptical that a man of structure and discipline like head coach Jason Garrett can win with risk-takers like Romo and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
While Michael Irvin has remained friends with Jerry Jones and often has been seen as a Romo sympathizer, Sanders has repeatedly piled on when Romo has been at his low points.
My biggest issue is that I don’t believe he had a horrible game. In the NFL, you get so few possessions that a play here or a play there can sometimes be massive. That’s how it was Monday night. If WR Dez Bryant runs the right route, it’s a decent gain for Dallas instead of 7 points for the Bears. Another INT bounced off WR Kevin Ogletree’s chest. Unacceptable. You could partially blame one of the INT’s – the one that was actually a fumble – on the offensive line. The Cowboys as a whole need to play better, and maybe Bryant needs to sit down for a few weeks in order for him to achieve the mental focus necessary to start making plays.
The last time an NFL team other than the Ravens won at M&T Bank Stadium was Dec. 5th 2010 (Steelers 13-10 over Ravens on Sunday Night Football), and I expect the Ravens to hold serve again. That said, I also think the Cowboys are gonna be a different creature after the bye than they were before it. One positive from this weekend was that all of their divisional foes lost except the team they hold the tiebreaker against, New York.
