As I type this sentence, I'm nearly ready to concede there's just
Coaches who knew Romo's coach at the time, Bill Parcells, told me Parcells loved the kid's potential and believed Romo was coachable enough to be "reined in." But I was even less convinced the night of Jan. 6, 2007 -- a night that will live in Cowboys playoff infamy. In Seattle, all they needed was a 19-yard field goal -- a virtual extra point -- to take a 23-21 lead with just more than a minute left. And Romo butterfingered the snap! But wait, he scooped it up, took off for the flank
all he needed was 1 yard for a first down, 2 for a touchdown
motion. Romo got tackled from behind for no gain!
Tony Romo had played well enough to win. And Tony Romo had lost the game.
OK, that's it. I give up. He has torn me apart long enough.
Tony Romo will never, ever win a Super Bowl for the Dallas Cowboys. So much will go right. But in the end, something always will go wrong.
