Jerry Jones “so proud of Romo” after tough loss to Broncos

Jerry Jones AP

Tony Romo played a masterful game on Sunday, right up until his final pass, an interception that set the Broncos up for their game-winning field goal. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he’ll remember that game for the way Romo played before that final pass.

Jones said after the game that although it will take some time for the Cowboys to get over their 51-48 loss, he is proud of his team. And Jones noted that this was more a game that Peyton Manning and his team won than a game that Romo and his teammates lost.

“We’re sick. We’re really sick,” Jones said. “Not a lot to be said. These guys — are they going to get over it? Well, they’re not going to get over it any time soon, over the next few hours or days. We’ve got a lot of ‘what ifs’ in our mind. Certainly, we’re going to go over specific plays, but the ones we really could criticize, Peyton had a lot to do with that. But I am so proud of our team, I am so proud of Romo.”

Jones should be proud. Romo deserves an enormous amount of credit for completing 25 of 36 passes for 506 yards, with five touchdowns and one interception. Romo played well enough for the Cowboys to beat 30 of the NFL’s 31 other teams. Unfortunately, the Cowboys were playing Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

    He didn’t look to proud when they showed him after the interception…

    GM Jerry , just shut up …

  3. truthfactory says: Oct 7, 2013 7:53 AM

    I couldnt agree more. Romo played as well as he could have, and better than 30 other QBs on Sunday and lost. Too much criticism and credit is given to QBs for team wins.

    Brady gets credit for a Superbowl win, while only throwing for about 150 yds. Another AFC championship game where he threw 3 Ints, and his defense bailed him out.

    Any win (playoff or regular season) is earned or lost by an entire team. If a qb hasnt had the fortune of getting bailed out in “poor performances”, then he’s a bum. If a QB has had some breaks go his way in his bad performances, its all forgotten and he’s a hero.

    Its not all about the QB.

    Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?

  5. bygd1 says: Oct 7, 2013 7:53 AM

    Sure I buy that, iy was fun seeing Jerry’s grinning and pre celebration turn to red face as his team choked once again LOL How Bout Them Boys

  6. gallaghedj311 says: Oct 7, 2013 7:55 AM

    Hahahahahahaha Classic Romo. I could feel that critical mistake coming. Lmfao! Best day ever. Go Eagles!

  7. packerbackernj says: Oct 7, 2013 7:57 AM

    one of my cowboy fan buddies calls Romo “Old blue balls” says “he teases you with talent for 59 minutes and then after a full 60 you’re left in pain and disappointment.”

  8. irishgary says: Oct 7, 2013 7:57 AM

    Yeah the moron should be proud of that defense too.

  9. lennydpocketqb says: Oct 7, 2013 8:00 AM

    Delusional.

  10. araidersfan says: Oct 7, 2013 8:02 AM

    I remember that Bill Walsh once said that Steve DeBerg was “just good enough to get you beat”.

    I think this also sums up Romo perfectly, although Jerry certainly doesn’t have the rationality (not to mention football knowledge) that Walsh did.

  11. kenstabler says: Oct 7, 2013 8:03 AM

    Really a great game by Romo until the end, but moral victories don’t win Super Bowl’s.

    Winning games does.

  12. ccjcsr says: Oct 7, 2013 8:04 AM

    It is what it is! We wouldn’t have been in the game if it wasn’t for him.

  13. olcap says: Oct 7, 2013 8:05 AM

    Isn’t that speshul?

    Jer is so proud of his choke artist, but would give anything to have Peyton.

  14. Robert Chandler says: Oct 7, 2013 8:05 AM

    Vince Lombardi would have said simply, “We lost the goddamn game. Two-a-days until we sort it out. We won’t be losing next weekend.”

    See the difference? One is a legend, one is a jackhole.

  15. grudenlikesme says: Oct 7, 2013 8:07 AM

    Why does the camera crew feel the urge to show Jerry and Romo’s wife every other play ? You rarely see other owners at all during a game, and you never see the other players wife. I am not a fan of any NFC east team, just can’t stand watching her put her hands to her mouth like it’s the guy;s first completion every time they get a first down ! ENOUGH

  16. geniusry says: Oct 7, 2013 8:07 AM

    As a Cowboys fan who predicted the outcome of this game before it happened, anyone blaming Romo for this loss is a hater, an idiot or just knows nothing about the sport. He out dueled Peyton statistically. The only difference was Peyton’s defense made one play when it mattered.

  17. cheapsack says: Oct 7, 2013 8:09 AM

    Denial or senile?

    Either way Jerry.

  18. raiderufan says: Oct 7, 2013 8:12 AM

    How about the defense gets a stop…just one?

    I get that he threw another one at the worst time possible but c’mon here! Even my Raiders stopped Manning once!

    If Romo gets that defense 48 points to work with I’m not gonna blame a loss on him no matter when he throws a pick.

  19. seabreezes51 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:12 AM

    May they both stay forever!

  20. grudenlikesme says: Oct 7, 2013 8:14 AM

    I like Romo, and sometimes want to root for the Cowboys, but Jerry Jones makes it so hard to. This guys ego is incredible. Davis > Jones

  21. losntina69 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:15 AM

    Hey let’s change the record, same ole song with this guy. Everyone knows he can put up good numbers, which is why fantasy footballers like drafting him, but when it matters when it counts he comes up short. This dude is 33 or so and so he isnt some young buck that will change. In the words of Dennis Green he is who we thought he was and we let him off the hook.

  22. broncotis3000 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:15 AM

    @truthfactory…..Very well said…Sportswriters,analysts,fans should be mindful of this the next time we see the typical “Manning chokes in the playoffs” headline…

  23. therealsmiley says: Oct 7, 2013 8:15 AM

    That was a heavyweight bout. Hail!

  24. mungman69 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:16 AM

    Romo aint a winner. Can’t you tell?

  25. lks311 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:17 AM

    Say what you will about Jerry Jones, but he is fiercely loyal and supports his coach and QB through crisis and adversity. Then, on the other hand, you’ve got the group down in Tampa…

  26. wiley16350 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:19 AM

    The problem is, it happens way too often. When the Cowboys are in a 1 possession game (winning, tied or losing) you expect Romo to throw a game losing interception. Sure the defense was horrible and Romo kept the team in the game. Ultimately, though, Romo had the ball with a chance to win the game and gave the ball to the opponent which allowed them to run out the clock and win the game. If Romo would have taken a sack and the Cowboys were forced to punt and the defense proceeded to give up the game winning points, it would be a little different. The fact is though, Romo ruined any shot the Cowboys had at winning by making that throw and basically gave the opponent everything they needed to win the game. That is losing the game, no matter how poorly everyone else did. The problem with Romo, it happens all the time.

  27. howiefeltersnatch says: Oct 7, 2013 8:19 AM

    This is like the American media saying how proud they are of Obama for shutting down the war memorials and blocking the view to Mt. Rushmore but keeping open his golf course during the government shutdown.

  28. bennyb82 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:20 AM

    If Romo had an average game, the storyline would be about how great Denver is. But he had a great game and made one mistake late and now all the emphasis is on how he chokes. Just stating the obvious…

  29. wrossi81 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:20 AM

    Romo is exactly the player Jerry Jones deserves: does enough to look like he’s in it, but will always choke in the clutch situations.

  30. ravensrooster94 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:21 AM

    I am totally unsurprised. This game was a microcosm of Romo’s entire career. 506 all-time Dallas best passing yards on 35 pass attempts, and then a game-changing interception to lose the game on his 36th.

    People are making a big deal out of the fact that it was Peyton Manning and the Broncos who beat them, but given Romo’s past history it could have been anybody. And a variety of teams have certainly profited from his mistakes. Wake up, Jerry.

  31. iceburgskin202 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:21 AM

    And right on cue he throws a dumb pass into double coverage. This is who he gave an extension to what else can he say ” I’m having buyers remorse”. HaHa typical Tony Ohno always on time! HTTR

  32. hailskins94 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:23 AM

    Golly gee whiz , I sure hope Jerry took Tony out for an ice cream cone afterwards. He deserves it!

  33. 1rockyracoon says: Oct 7, 2013 8:23 AM

    He’s talking about Romo like he is a young player. The guy is a veteran who keeps choking at the worse times possible. 300, 400, or 500 yards passing–doesn’t matter when you throw an interception that leads to your team losing. Why is the owner talking about going over plays from the game? He sounds more like a coach than an owner. Jones’s success has him thinking he doesn’t need anyone making football decisions except him. This is what keeps the Cowboys from becoming a Super Bowl contender. Keep it Jones!

  34. sidepull says: Oct 7, 2013 8:24 AM

    How is it Romo supporters always have blinders on?
    Surely you see the history of this guy choking. All the posts you are reading today inferring that the collective “we” knew he was going to throw the interception are not bogus. We are not clairvoyants.
    It is just the tag that comes with being Romo.
    You Dallas fans and the media can compare him to Brady, Manning, your statisticians are legit but when you get right down to it he has never won a superbowl and the other guys have despite interceptions and all those excuses. They are winners and HOF QB material. Your guy is a really good QB but at the same time he has a history of choking when it counts. The rest of us who don’t have blinders on know that. He was great last night until it counted.

    Except that Romo always does this. He plays great throughout the game and then blows it when it counts. It’s been his M.O. since entering the league. Speaking of the league, YES…it really IS all about the QB.

    ==================================
    The one play they made was because of a bad throw by your QB with 2 minutes left in the game on the bad side of the 50 yard line. Should have taken a sack or thrown it away if that was possible.

  37. bgrillz says: Oct 7, 2013 8:28 AM

    The problem is, he has had some outstanding games in his career. He just always seems to yutz it up when the game is on the line in a big game. I am just gla that Ernie Sims didn’t get to run his mouth all day about how they beat the Broncos and we should all shut up about Peyton Manning. Would have looked seriously silly to win, but give up 48 and still talk trash. Then again, what in Dallas isn’t over the top and silly.

  38. eaglessuperfan says: Oct 7, 2013 8:31 AM

    Jerry must have missed his meds

  39. commonsensedude says: Oct 7, 2013 8:31 AM

    Romo gets too much flak here. Yes, he threw a costly pick … But so did the great Peyton Manning. And Manning’s pick was much worse than Romo’s in terms of being a bad throw. Blame the defense(s).

  40. ripster65 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:39 AM

    Yeah, great game. Ask Dan Marino how much those great numbers mean if you don’t get the W. Regardless of anything else that happened in that game, it was ROMO who handed the ball to the opponents in scoring range at the end of the game. As someone above said, “It is wha it is”.

  41. blackqbwhiterb says: Oct 7, 2013 8:40 AM

    For all the talk about how great Sean Lee has been playing and how awesome DeMarcus ware is, Dallas defense gave up 51 points…. There is no bigger Dallas hater than me but this loss should not be laid at the feet of Tony Romo… When you allow the opponent to score 51 points you cannot blame your quarterback for the loss

  42. daknight93 says: Oct 7, 2013 8:41 AM

    Romo had an awesome game, but there is 2 major problems with Dallas…Their Defense is awful overall and giving up 51 points shows that and Romo has a bad history of “Choking” in the 2 min drill and he reminded fans his usual pattern of making mistakes when the game is on the line…Jerry is delusional with his comments, how can an owner be proud of 1 person, this is a team game and until Dallas get a “Defense” they will not go far this season and fail as usual.

  43. lambeaurules says: Oct 7, 2013 8:42 AM

    I’m reminded of the article when Brett Favre said that Romo was the QB playing that reminded him of his own style of play. Yup, INT at a very critical part of the game sums it all up. Farve did that to us for years, I loved the guy but sometimes it was very frustrating. BUT, I have to say, even though I am not a Dallas fan I was really pulling for them. That was one of the most entertaining games I have watched in a long time! That game could have easily gone either way and Romo proved he was capable of going toe to toe with Manning. Great job by both teams!

  44. ilovefoolsball says: Oct 7, 2013 8:44 AM

    The “Moran” of the story is, take Romo out of the game when victory is in the line.

  45. losangelesbillsofbuffalo says: Oct 7, 2013 8:48 AM

    Normally I am the first to tell Jerry that he’s talking too much and overplaying his hand. But come on now, the man was interviewed and he gave an opinion that is truly justified. If you’re killing him on here, it’s unwarranted, because Jerry’s right, and Romo played a hell of a game. A HELL of a game. He was dropping dimes, moving around in the pocket like he was invisible, extending plays, and, did I mention dropping DIMES? The guy threw 5 TD’s before his INT. If you’re blasting Romo for “being Romo”, then you’re an either an ignorant hater, you didn’t watch the whole game, or both.

  46. tundratommy says: Oct 7, 2013 8:51 AM

    What’s with all of the ripping on Jerry? Don’t you all realize that the Cowboys covered the spread?

  47. afcdomination says: Oct 7, 2013 8:54 AM

    and this is why your team plays up and down. you can’t let this bother you beyond today, and here is jerry talking about how they won’t let this one go for awhile. jerry, the second that game is over, you need to immediately deal with the fact you have a W or an L, and be to the next week.

    great coaches, you can’t even talk to them after a game, because they are in this mode where they are already into next week. Jerry Jones is so involved with the team ,that it wouldn’t surprise me if he hurts the cowboys with some of that “passion”

  48. redbearwoodall says: Oct 7, 2013 8:54 AM

    The good news (not even being sarcastic) is that they’ll still probably win their division, especially if Romo keeps playing like that.

  49. trublu923 says: Oct 7, 2013 9:03 AM

    I’m a Cowboys fan but I’m sick of watching this same thing 3 times plus a year. You think I would learn by now but every time I get tricked into believing in Romo and watch him blow the big moments. Stop defending him it is his fault … Not all of it but he seems to space it when it matters the most. Like the old saying goes it’s not how you start but how you finish……

  50. ezg1 says: Oct 7, 2013 9:06 AM

    I guess Garrett, once again, escapes any responsibility for this pathetic mess! Any wonder this organization continues to muck around in dis-functionality?

  51. mikejsmith32 says: Oct 7, 2013 9:07 AM

    At the end of the day, Romo played a great game. Was it excellent? No. Did he throw a pick at the worst possible time? Yes.

    Romo is who he is. Proponents of Romo are right, he played out of his mind. Critics are also right, he made a crucial mistake — as has been his habit since becoming starting QB for the Cowboys.

    I’m encouraged by this loss — I expected Dallas to get blown out. They didn’t. They hung in there and fought.

    The offense proved that they’re at their best when the play-calling is aggressive. (Please read this Bill Callahan.)

    Mo Claiborne, hopefully, got some of his swagger back.

    And, Terrence Williams and Cole Beasley proved they can be weapons in this offense.

    That has me encouraged. I just hope that they find a way to play with that tenacity week-in and week-out.

  52. flavadave10 says: Oct 7, 2013 9:07 AM

    I’m a huge critic of Romo, so it’s only fair that I give him a ton of credit when he plays the way that he did yesterday. He played his heart out. He played well enough to beat any other team in the NFL. He made ONE bad throw. Without Romo, the Cowboys lose by roughly 20, probably more.

    I’m sure if Peyton Manning’s INT had cost the Broncos the game, everybody would be talking about how bad the Broncos D is and how amazing Peyton Manning was.

    Romo seems different this year- maybe he’s finally starting to get it all together. 2 INTs all year, and he’s looked very impressive so far.

  53. szwhtsup123 says: Oct 7, 2013 9:08 AM

    Classic Nomo. The great ones find a way to win the game, he finds a way to lose the game.

  54. dcapettini says: Oct 7, 2013 9:08 AM

    Stats don’t mean anything, except to fantasy players who have poisoned football. Let’s make a contrast. Joe Flacco doesn’t have all the glamour stats and everyone (fantasy players) laugh at him, but he is a winner. He didn’t have much of a defense last year but did what he had to do. That is all he does; enough to win. Romo is a very fine QB but can be counted on to snatch defeat from the yawning jaws of victory. That is what he does. It happens all the time. If the defense had only given up 21 points, Romo would have found a way to lose.

    I am not an ignorant hater. I am a pragmatic fan. Matt Schaub and Tony Romo can be counted on to screw up. It happens to other QBs, but not with the regularity of these guys (maybe Matt Ryan too).

  55. bspurloc says: Oct 7, 2013 9:22 AM

    Broncos refused to blitz Romo till the last 2 plays.

  56. leevi98 says: Oct 7, 2013 9:25 AM

    Here we go again. Its a broken record. Romo does great the entire game. THEN he does the samething we have seen over and over and over again and turn the ball over in crunch time. Now we have to listen to jerry and the fan base try for the 1000TH time convince everyone how good romo is. Sorry he is who he is and he did yesterday how he always ends shootouts. He always blinks first. And he did yesterday what he did to end last season..with a pick in crunch time. I’m glad my team isjt dumb enough to stick with rex grosmans brother and they extended his contract…its funny to watch. Very entertaining lol

  59. keepingitrealdumb says: Oct 7, 2013 9:30 AM

    don’t know why people are piling on jerry jones and tony romo.

    i watched that game .. romo did great .. 25/36 506yrds 5TDs 1INT. those are FANTASTIC numbers.

    he didn’t throw too much, only 36 attempts .. and he completed a very good % of them, 25 completions .. 506yrds??? incredible. 5TDs is a marvelous game .. and only 1 INT. i believe the QB rating is 140+? who can dispute those numbers? specifically ..did you watch the game? if you watched the game you will know romo played great.

    the offense put up 48 points .. but the defense gave up 51. cannot put this loss on romo .. in fact he needs to be praised for keeping the game close. what about when DAL was leading 48-41? can the D get a stop here please?!?!?!

  60. asp4ever47 says: Oct 7, 2013 9:40 AM

    Did you guys realize Denver didn’t punt ONE freaking time? They either scored on every possession or had a turnover (FUMBLE and INT).. when your defense is not able to get a stop, your gonna lose, plain and simple.

    Sure, Romo made a mistake, but when you score 48 points, you should be in the win column! This is on the Defense!

    Say what you will about Jerry Jones, but he is fiercely loyal and supports his coach and QB through

    Actually, this isn’t accurate at all. This has nothing to do with loyalty. Jerrah drafted and has insisted on sticking with Romo primarily because he likes to tell folks that he “discovered” Romo. Jerrah knows that any criticism of Romo is in effect criticism of Jerrah. Jerrah also hired his coach, and he knows that any criticism he levels at his coach is effectively leveled at himself as well. That’s just one of many problems with an owner playing the role of GM; he gets too close to the situation which makes making the hard but necessary decisions more difficult. Add a healthy dose of Jerrah-sized ego to the mix, and you end up with a team whose record since 1997 is the very definition of the term “mediocre.” This isn’t loyalty; it’s self-aggrandizement masquerading as loyalty in an attempt at self-preservation.

  63. 49erstim says: Oct 7, 2013 9:57 AM

    I’m kinda thinking maybe the defense stops doing an impression of a revolving door. The opposing team scoring 51 represents a failure IMHO.

    Only the Cowboys keep calling for pass plays when they are up late in games. Im not calling for ultra conservative, but don’t call plays in the middle of the darn field.

  64. lovefootball4life says: Oct 7, 2013 10:05 AM

    Romo played exceptionally well. The team played well. The line game him an eternity in the pocket. That game was fun to watch and I’m not a fan of either team. He makes one mistake (same mistake Manning made at one point in the game) but Romo’s was unfortunately very ill timed.

  65. footballfan12289 says: Oct 7, 2013 10:17 AM

    Romo did everything he could to keep up with Peyton Manning, he dosen’t desrve the blaim for the loss. That Cowboys DEFENSE was atrocious.

  66. austinoxford says: Oct 7, 2013 10:20 AM

    First of all; Romo outplayed Peyton. Plain and simple. Denver’s D was getting pressure and Romo was averting it all game. See the two SPECTACULAR plays where Romo pretended he was Houdini and dropped dimes to Witten. Peyton had ZERO pressure. I haven’t looked at the stats but my guess is that he was pressured on less than 5 throws.

    Second; does any other Cowboy fan feel like “Bane” from Batman has a hand in giving us hope and then wrenching our guts?
    “I learned here that there can be no true despair without hope. So, as I terrorize Gotham [Cowboys fans], I will feed its people hope to poison their souls. I will let them believe they can survive so that you can watch them clamoring over each other to “stay in the sun. You can watch me torture an entire city [Cowboys fans] and when you have truly understood the depth of your failure, we will fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s destiny… We will destroy Gotham [Cowboys fans] and then, when it is done and Gotham [Cowboys fans] is ashes, then you have my permission to die

  67. taintedsaints2009 says: Oct 7, 2013 10:40 AM

    You know…the cowboys defense did give up 51 points… Just saying.

    And what’s funny is I thought the defense actually played the broncos pretty well.

    It was the running backs that were killing them.

    Romo played great. The bronco linebacker made a great play on that pass. It was not a bad pick.

  68. zack2482 says: Oct 7, 2013 10:40 AM

    Since 1960, teams are 142-2 when their QB passes for over 300 yards with a passer rating of 140. Two of those losses in 53 plus seasons were QB by the Dallas Cowboys. People need to really stop blaming Romo already.

    The last was against the Giants, where I believe Romo threw 4 TD’s and no INT’s.

    Unfortunately, Romo is getting wasted being on the Dallas Cowboys. The guy has yet to have a good defense in his career. Maybe Jerry can trade him to the Texans or Bengals to put those teams over the top. Clearly, those teams have the support of a defense, but not a good QB on offense.

    And for the rest of the NFC East. As bad as this division is, Dallas is the best team. I know that isn’t saying much, but they have now lost to two 5-0 team, barely…..

  69. gavriloprincip33 says: Oct 7, 2013 10:46 AM

    Typical game for this team over the past few years; I have to wonder how good Romo could have beeen in his career if he had a real HC and GM…

  70. brownsince64 says: Oct 7, 2013 10:52 AM

    what is he supposed to say? He just paid the guy 100 million. This is, as always, all about Jerry and making himself look good.

    Hahahahahahaha Classic Romo. I could feel that critical mistake coming. Lmfao! Best day ever. Go Eagles!
    ===================================

    The Eagles wouldn’t have had to worry about a game losing interception, since they would have put up nowhere close to 48 points on that team. It would have been over in the first half. Funny how fans of teams with zero Superbowl wins talk the most.

    I expected the Broncos to win 51-16, not 51-48. The Cowboys nearly beat the best team in the league. I understand the frustration with Romo, but come on. Did you really expect to win or to nearly win? Stop complaining. The Broncos have been leaving a trail of bodies behind them every week and you guys almost took them down. It’s not all doom and gloom for you guys. And I am saying this as someone who hates the Cowboys. You guys played a really good game and Romo is capable of inflicting major damage on anybody.

    I wonder how smart Jerry Jones feels for using Rob Ryan as the scape goat last season because the Saints defense is looking a helluva lot better since he took over. Also it doesn’t matter who Romo is out dueling if he’s not winning any playoff games!!

  76. dannyreneau says: Oct 7, 2013 11:07 AM

    you know, one or two of those “other 30 teams” that the cowboys would have beaten might show up with a defense. And that could cause some problems.

    That being said, i’m not a cowboys fan, but damn, Romo was playing like a champ yesterday

  77. granadafan says: Oct 7, 2013 11:09 AM

    Jurrah has crowned himself the Superbowl moral victory champions already.

    That said, this loss was on the defense, not Romo or the offense.

    the cowboys have never beaten the ravens.

    First Romo is a good QB surrounded by really good talent. The problem with him isn’t if he is accurate or can read defenses or make all the throws. He does that. The problem with Romo is in Big Moments with the game on the line he is going to make the mistake to lose the game. Thats always been his tendency. To me he reminds me of Cutler. A Good QB but pressure makes him do something that is going to cost the team a win.

    Second. Jerry isn’t a good gm. He does not know how to get out of his own way. Jerry you need to go to MR. Jones office and be handed a Pink Slip. Let a real GM come in and fix the team. Just sit in your box and sign the checks like a good owner should.

  80. richndc says: Oct 7, 2013 11:25 AM

    I am very proud of Romo–if he continues to play at the level he has played at all year–the Cowboys will win the East, maybe even make noise in the playoffs. I am not proud at all of the Kiffin “bend don’t break” defense. But really, what are you going to do? Peyton Manning is balling and barring injury, he will likely set several all time records this season. If he has not torched your team yet…he will….he will. Don’t forget Peyton threw a late pick six in the Super Bowl–and the same ones chirping about Romo now were calling him a bum, washed up, done, overrated, etc. Keep that up though, it is important that the juvenile football know nothings remain easily identified. We need to know who you are so we can tune you out or cut you off if forced to sit next to you at a bar or a long plane ride. Thanks ladies.

  81. jwil007 says: Oct 7, 2013 11:25 AM

    Cowboys fans are mad at Romo???? The game ending pick makes you mad but I would way more angry at the DEFENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOu gave up 51…if you score 48 most weeks thats a win….Cowboys fans be mad at Monte Kiffin….also had you stopped the run that would have put more pressure on Peyton…. Not all Romo’s fault in the least bit

  82. truths4all says: Oct 7, 2013 11:30 AM

    Is Jones as proud of his Cowboys defense which got torched for 51 points?

    Seemed to recall Jones said this was a Super Bowl level team so his “Super Bowl Defense” was really defenseless against Peyton Manning’s attack which was full of errors and left a lot more points on the field. If this game had been played in Denver, the Broncos really could have scored 80+ points on the Cowboys and Romo would not have done as well as he did on his home field.

  83. thejimius says: Oct 7, 2013 11:36 AM

    Not that I want to make excuses for Romo, but if you watch the play you’ll notice that as Romo plants his foot to throw he steps on the heel of his offensive lineman (I think it was his left tackle). The lineman had been pushed back just enough to be in the way. He was throwing into a tight spot and it looked like this affected the throw just enough to result in a pick.

    Its unfortunate it happened when it did, but to my eyes it wasn’t Romo “choking.” It was simply bad luck.

  84. crewdawg says: Oct 7, 2013 11:39 AM

    Romo threw a bad pick but, you cannot blame him for that loss. You should never ever lose a game your offense puts up 48pts. No excuses.

  85. chefbob52355 says: Oct 7, 2013 11:43 AM

    Not a big Jerry Jones supporter, but In Jones defense, he didn’t say that he was proud of Romo’s history; he said he was proud of this particular performance. As far as defenses go, how about Denver’s D in this one?

    Great game by Romo. But at the start of the forth quarter who else thought to themselves that Romo was going to turn the ball over?

  88. romosrevenge says: Oct 7, 2013 12:09 PM

    And Tom Brady played a masterful game ( er, not really) right up until the end when he threw a game ending interception vs. Cinn. Except he DIDN”T throw 5 TD’s or for 500 yds. So count Brady along with Manning as a QB who was outplayed yesterday by Romo. With the way the Dallas D played, Romo’s play was miraculous. Oh and Denver fans, you also have a BIG problem with your D. Seattle is going to bury you.

  89. ncheelsboysfan says: Oct 7, 2013 12:17 PM

    Tough game! Proud of my Cowboys and Romo. Neither were perfect but they played a hell of a game. We are way better than any in the NFC East. Going to win the division and get in the playoffs and that is what matters!! Go Cowboys!

    BTW those “mediocre…” (cough cough) Giants at 0-4 went to 0-5 yesterday against Philly – guess the pundits need a new adjective for them like “crappy, sorry, lousy, loser or something! Looks like ELI is actually< 3/5 of ELITE…ELOL!

    RG1and3 we are coming for you! Philly too!

    Go Cowboys!!!

  90. tsizzlesucks says: Oct 7, 2013 12:44 PM

    Now we all know what Jimmy Johnson knew all those years ago…this owner is certifiable. I’ll bet that after hearing those comments , Johnson started laughing hysterically and hasn’t stopped yet!
    Boss-man, no matter how hard you try you will never justify the money you spent on Romo. Christ, you can spend a lot less for a LOSER!!!

  91. wolfmanpatriot says: Oct 7, 2013 12:57 PM

    Certainly, we’re going to go over specific plays, but the ones we really could criticize, Peyton had a lot to do with that.
    ———-

    This, and the whole statement around it, is something that should be said by the HC, not owner.

    On another note;
    Aside from the Int at a crucial moment (It happens. To some more than others) I thought Romo played a fabulous game and can see why Jones is proud of him and has hope for him.

    Also, they showed his wife a few times during the game. Hats off!

    I not only thought it, I texted it to my brother about a minute before it happened.

    Like somebody said, its not like we’re clairvoyant.

    As a Cowboys fan who predicted the outcome of this game before it happened, anyone blaming Romo for this loss is a hater, an idiot or just knows nothing about the sport. He out dueled Peyton statistically. The only difference was Peyton’s defense made one play when it mattered.
    ———————————————————————————–
    It’s funny how you say some don’t know anything about the sport but yet say romo out dueled manning. I take it as you know nothing about the sport, romo only had 92 yards passing more than manning, both had the same amount of TDs with manning running one in and both tossed a pick. That is nowhere near an out duel, you can argue that the Dallas d had way better coverage than the broncos d but manning just picked them apart. It’s easy for you to say that Denver’s d made a play when it mattered but recent history shows that romo commit 8 turnovers in potential game winning drives in which the cowboys lost the game

    Say an airline pilot does a fantastic job flying through some horrendous weather, but then crashes during what should have been a fairly routine landing at the destination, and everyone on board dies. You don’t say “Well, overall it was a great flight!!”

    You do know that you guys are 2-3, right? I'm not a Giants fan, but saying you're the best in the NFC East this year is like bragging about being the thinnest kid at fat camp. And as far as banging on Eli, just remember, that guy still has twice as many Super Bowl wins as Romo has total playoff victories…

  98. larrydavid7000 says: Oct 7, 2013 3:27 PM

    Jones should be proud of something, he is certainly the reason the cowboys fail year after year the last 20 years.

  102. hailtotheking1897 says: Oct 8, 2013 12:48 AM

    So Romo should’ve taken a sack so it could be 3rd and long? Lmao. Yeaaaaahhhh that increases a chance of throwing an INT in that situation. That sorry offensive line had everything to with that INT as did Romo. That ball was underthrown (lineman caused Romo to not follow through with throw) and that LB made an awesome diving play as a result after he made a diving catch. Lol. Denver earned this game as much as Romo and that oline blew it. The cowboys play two worst defenses the next two games so lets see what happens.

    Go Cowboys!

  103. hailtotheking1897 says: Oct 8, 2013 12:55 AM

    Peyton Manning also threw an INT last year in a game againt Baltimore in OT … wait that was in the playoffs! Didn’t he throw a pick 6 in a super bowl too with the game on the line? Didnt it take Peyton 7 years(correct me if I’m wrong lol) to finally win a big game? No one remembers the choke jobs he had against San Diego? Lol.

    Its far too easy to call Romo a choke. Its lazy. Then again half of you dont know football and have never played it lol

  104. kenstabler says: Oct 8, 2013 8:55 AM

    The great ones lead their team to fourth quarter victories with just under two minutes on the clock. The lame ones throw it right into the defenders arms.

    I want to root for this guy, what a game, but what a boneheaded throw. The Cowboys had this game won, Denver could not stop the boy’s offense. UGGGG.

    On another note: How does Peyton Manning not get called for intentional grounding on that one series that led to a TD? The Bronco’s are the new New England Patriots. I am starting to think again that the NFL is rigged like boxing. He’s in the middle of the pocket, no one within 15 yards and throws straight into the ground? Any other QB in the league gets called for that, but not Peyton. Crazy. I had to turn the TV off for 15 minutes.

    The Bronco’s will win 16 games this season, because the NFL want’s them to for the ratings and the money. Yea, Manning is good, but he’s getting help from above.
