Romo suffered no further injuries Monday night

Tony Romo AP

It was a night to remember for Tony Romo on Monday.

Forget that he boosted his reputation as a “tough” quarterback. That was unnecessary. It was more important that Romo pushed the Cowboys into a first place tie when the Dallas offense wasn’t at its best.

This was the type of game the 2010 Cowboys lost.

He motivated me to go out there tonight when I obviously wasn’t 100 percent,” Dez Bryant said via Dan Graziano of ESPN.com. “I mean, broken rib, punctured lung, and he’s out there. You’ve got to be willing to put yourself out there for a guy like that.”

Romo was obviously hurting during the game, but he escaped without sustaining any further injury.  He noted after the game he should only feel better in the coming weeks.  The Cowboys host the Lions before they get a well-timed Week Five bye.

    “The Cowboys host the Lions before they get a well-timed Week Five bye”

    Why do I think Romo’s ribs are not going to feel “better” after that game?

  2. bhindenemylines says: Sep 27, 2011 9:53 AM

    Anyone who questions Romo’s heart and toughness after these last two weeks has obviously not watched any Cowboys games in the last few years, let alone tthis season.

    Romo should be livid with the way the rest of his team was prepared when he didn’t practice. I mean yeah the Redskins were cheap by calling out a fake snap count but this is the NFL, that stuff happens. I have never seen a group more lost than that OL and their WR’s.

    What a hero. A legend. A man’s man. Courageous, brave, daring, unstoppable.

    Romo is going to complain about his ribs all year long. That is how he is going to have excuses all year long. Sure you saw some grimaces when he was on the ground but when he torques his rib cage and his face does not change well leads me to believe there is a bunch of cowpies being dropped on all of us.

    That week 5 bye can’t come soon enough for this team

  9. eaglesnoles05 says: Sep 27, 2011 10:05 AM

    I don’t question his heart, or his toughness. I also don’t usually question how he plays in septemeber. If there are any questions he needs to answer, they aren’t gonna be asked for a couple months til december/january-ish…

  10. comeonnowguys says: Sep 27, 2011 10:06 AM

    Trent Dilfer has more playoff wins than Tony Romo.

  11. itsmammoth says: Sep 27, 2011 10:08 AM

    The Lions are 3-0 after beating the Chiefs, Bucs, and Vikings.

    The Cowboys have played three great defenses in the past three weeks. The Lions will be nothing new. We’ll see how good Detroit is when they play someone worth a hoot.

  12. anonimocontraditorio says: Sep 27, 2011 10:11 AM

    Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley are gonna eat Tony Romo’s lung next week.

  13. realitypolice says: Sep 27, 2011 10:12 AM

    ========================

    That’s interesting logic. I mean, it’s not like the lions have a lunatic defensive tackle eats QBs for breakfast or anything like that.

  14. motorcitykitties says: Sep 27, 2011 10:18 AM

    The Lions D-line is going to tear him to pieces. He will not finish the game this Sunday. They would be wise to sit him now. Can’t wait for Romo to meet Suh, KVB, Williams, and Avril.

  15. scudbot says: Sep 27, 2011 10:19 AM

    … aside from the embarrassment of a 70.9 passer rating, being on a team whose players need inspiration to show up despite being paid $millions, and joining in the fumble orgy.

  16. murraychadwick says: Sep 27, 2011 10:20 AM

    Note to Romo’s ribs: Add Nick Fairley to your list of Lions DLinemen to avoid. He has been cleared to play this weekend.

    That’s not true. Next Cowboys loss, it’ll be blamed on Romo and there will be plenty of questions asked.

    So all last week we heard about Kerrigan and Orakpo, this week it’s Suh and Fairley. Here’s a little advice, Lions fans. They’re the Lions for a reason. You need to worry about Ware and Spencer. It’s not like the Cowboys don’t have 5 more sacks than the Lions going against better offensive lines.

  20. boysroll says: Sep 27, 2011 11:14 AM

    All i can say is this guy is a stud. 4skins just wish they had a QB of this quality.

    HOW BOUT THOSE COWBOYS!!!!! 1ST PLACE BABY WITH ALL THE INJURIES AND STUDS NOT PLAYING…ROB RYAN IS A BEAST D COORDINATOR TOO WITH ALL THE INJURIES WE HAVE ON D AND STILL GET THE WIN…

    A legend in his own mind maybe, Oh.. you ment a legend who’s won only 1 playoff game in his career and is more known for choking away games then being clutch.

  22. cometkazie says: Sep 27, 2011 11:20 AM

    It seemed as if the RedSkins were being extremely careful not to hit Romo hard after he released the ball, or is that just me? He went down a couple of times but it seemed as if it was from pushes rather than hits. The ‘Skin rushers were looking at the ref a lot to see if he was going to throw the flag.

    Just my impressions.

  23. jamezz23 says: Sep 27, 2011 11:20 AM

    Tony Romo is in for a beating next game. We’ll see how long he lasts.

  24. murraychadwick says: Sep 27, 2011 11:21 AM

    howley1, nobody said anything about your defense. Clearly Dallas’ defense is a good one, it’s your offense that is terrible. What does your defense have to do with Romo getting sacked?

  25. jamezz23 says: Sep 27, 2011 11:23 AM

    sorry

  27. davephilly says: Sep 27, 2011 11:58 AM

    Romo will rebreak his ribs next week vs Lions. N.Suh will also eat Jerry Jones’s children during the halftime show.

  28. howley1 says: Sep 27, 2011 12:02 PM

    What does your defense have to do with Romo getting sacked?

    ———————

    I don’t think you are in full grasp of the situation. Romo is not taking many sacks, considering the state of the OL and the pass rusher’s they’ve gone against. Orakpo, Kerrigan, Willis, they have one combined sack against the Cowboys.

    The Cowboys D is getting a lot of sacks and they’ve been facing some really good OLs. What does the D have to do with Romo getting sacked? More than you obviously think. A defense that can keep their offense on the field gives that offense more opportunities. The ability to sack the other QB plays a big part in that.

    Who cares if peyton manning is out for the year, romo played last week with a broken heart, and vick hurt his mangina on sunday, tell me something I dont know, like why matt ryan has a nickname

    ————————

    By the way, through 3 games they’re the 5th ranked offense in the NFL. They’re averaging well over 6 yards per play and are converting third downs at the same rate as the Lions. They have the 2nd most 20+ yard plays behind the Pats and are averaging almost 9 yards per pass attempt. Doesn’t sound so bad to me, miscues notwithstanding.

  31. alaricsrevenge says: Sep 27, 2011 12:11 PM

    I can’t believe what a pedestal you guys put this joker on like he’s some kind of unstoppable QB messiah. You just eat up the PR fluff that he had a “punctured” lung…. please. He wouldn’t be able to breathe much less play football. Cracked ribs I can believe and he may have nicked the outer lining of his lung but the PR spin machine in Dallas make this dude out to be Wolverine and his punctured lung miraculously (sic) healed completely in 4-5 days.

    He’s an average QB at best, has done realitivly nothing in his career except win 1 playoff game and you fools make him out to be Roger Staubach.

    “It’s week 3 and we are tied for 1st place in the NFC Least” ugh… fools and sheep.

    It’s a much better start than last year……… And it’s a little early in the season to really know whose children will be eaten………. That subject surely will be covered at the NBC Sportstalk MENSA club meeting…….

    Better’n last place with a $100 million QB that not only can’t play through a bruise on his NON THROWING HAND, he sulks and cries cries on the sidelines and acts like a prissy little girl at the post-game press conference, Dream Team fan.

    Read the whole post.

    What he was saying is that every week every teams’ fans are saying “Romo better watch out for Kerrigan & Orakpo; Suh & Fairley, Freeny & Mathis, Tuck & Uminyora (sp?), etc…it’s nothing new. Heard it all before. The Cowboys have a winning record when Romo is the QB, doesn’t really matter who the other teams have on D.

    As for the part about Ware & Spencer & Dallas’ defense, he’s saying the Lions have just as much, if not more to worry about when it comes to the opposition’s defense next week.

    Anyone else read Romo’s lips on the last premature snap when he told Costa, “I’m gonna F****** KILL you!!!” That was some good tv right there. I’m still laughing about that one.

    I have no delusions about my team or the QB. But you act like you just cliched the division in week 3. C’Mon man. Lets see how things shake out in December then if your choke artist QB still has room to talk then do your gum waggin then.

  42. gorilladunk says: Sep 27, 2011 1:29 PM

    @alaricsrevenge…I understand your frustration…you thought the Iggles would be undefeated this season, and instead, they are getting run over on a weekly basis. Their “all world” quarterback is whining because he’s getting hit and instead of going to his offensive linemen, he complains about the officials. Yeah, I’d be frustrated too. I bet Philly would have LOVED to kick 6 field goals on Sunday and managed to win. But hey, they scored a couple of TD’s and got d#*k slapped by dumbface Eli and his fourth string receivers.

  43. apm says: Sep 27, 2011 1:44 PM

    Whose that guy in the video, it can’t be Romo, since he’s not wearing a backwards ball cap?

    ———————————————–

    I seem to recall the 2000 Ravens offense hadn’t scored a single TD in 5 straight games, and yet they still won the SB that year. And their offense wasn’t anywhere NEAR as profilic as Dallas has the potential to be, when healthy.

    I’m not suggesting in any way that Dallas is going to, let alone winning, the SB this year. I’m just saying that not scoring a TD in a single game isn’t a problem, especially if you get a win. Double especially if four of your starters on O are injured (Witt, Romo, Dez, Austin).

    In addition to your glass of hatorade, why don’t you try this tall cool glass of STHU?

    ————————————————–

    People can rag on Romo all they want, sometimes for good reason, most times not. But this made me laugh. Sure, Romo has only won 1 playoff game, but Stafford has yet to even reach the playoffs, let alone even know what a .500+ season is like. And no, injuries can’t be used as an excuse. That just means he isn’t durable, giving Romo an even bigger edge. Romo is a long shot from being an elite QB (at least until when/if he gets a ring), but in terms of ability, toughness, and (newly found) leadership, he is a far better quarterback than Stafford.

    Here we go…

    The Lions have been a joke for years, however, there was a time where the Cowboys were down also… (Quincey Carter anyone?). Bad trades? How is Roy Williams doing for you?!? LOL

    Look at it this way, your team has just as many blunders as the lions, all the time letting Jerry Jones call the shots. (ain’t that right Dez? You do what he says, not the coach… correct?)

    Now, if you think Romo has seen the likes of the Detroit offensive line just by saying there was much to do about Kerrigan and Orakpo, you’re naive and ‘cute’. Do yourself a favor, get a comfy seat, make some popcorn, and get ready to wince over and over as the Lions D line gets at LEAST 10 hits on Romo.

    I wouldn’t worry about Fairley, since he’s the FOURTH DT on the roster. I would worry about Avril, Corey Williams, LoJack, and KVB.

    Lions are NOT a Superbowl team, but they will finish better than Dallas.

    It should be noted that Tony Romo and the Lufkin High School JV squad scored more points this weekend than the Hundred Million Dollar Man and the rest of the Dream Team did.
