London Fletcher takes a shot at Tony Romo

Getty Images

We loved retired linebacker London Fletcher.  We may end up loving him even more in retirement.

After NFL Network posted a photo of Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo pondering the undulation of a green with Tiger Woods and asked for captions, Fletcher offered up a good one on Twitter, via CSN Washington:  “Why is he taking all this time just to choke?

Here’s hoping London ends up taking a job in the media.

Meanwhile, feel free to try your own in the comments. How about, “I think he just sh-t himself“?

    London Fletcher said what every other NFL player thinks but are afraid to say due to PR hit

  2. seahawkshurtpeople says: Apr 12, 2014 11:36 AM

    LOL Fletcher nailed that one. Its funny because it’s so damn true.

    Romo, Dez Bryant, that money grubbing owner Jerry Jones and the rest of those turkeys in Dallas are just a side show and a disgrace to this great sport we love.

    May they always choke in the clutch.

  3. woodson28 says: Apr 12, 2014 11:44 AM

    Hey London, please feel free to expand on how Romo choked the last time the Redskins and the Cowboys played.

  4. exsane says: Apr 12, 2014 11:48 AM

    I will never understand why the cowboys are the most loved team in the nfl when you have an owner like jones, and a qb who cares more about off the field stuff than football itself.

  5. badskidmarks says: Apr 12, 2014 11:54 AM

    I actually feel kind of bad for Tony Romo. Not a Cowboys fan, but the poor guy always tries, and he’s pretty damn talented. Between piss poor coaching and a team full of players that just don’t seem to get it together, he ends up trying to do much and ends up with some boneheaded mistakes. He’d probably not have nearly as many if he didn’t consistently have to try and carry the team by himself.

  6. burgandy2260 says: Apr 12, 2014 11:55 AM

    Good job London. I’m proud to say that nobody cares about the friggin cowboys anymore. They are far from away from the 90’s teams and I’m sure I’m not the only one sick of them being the game of the week all the time. It’s well past the time allotted to blame being a rookie for Romo. He’s obviously not a great QB but a subpar investment for the blowhard owner-GM-groundskeeper-team chef and whatever other titles he makes up for himself. Roger needs to get past all this loyalty to a team without any substantial benefit for the league other than jokes about the owner!

  7. skins1970 says: Apr 12, 2014 11:57 AM

    BTW ITA agree with London, Romo did choke against the Skins in the last game 2012 when a spot in the playoffs were on the line..

  8. garnold51 says: Apr 12, 2014 12:04 PM

    He didn’t exactly choke when he beat you on the last play of the game in December, Mr. Fletcher.

  9. dino2997 says: Apr 12, 2014 12:04 PM

    It’s funny how certain players become media targets which inevitably lead to becoming targets for everyone else. Not a Romo or Cowboys fan but this is pretty silly.

  10. cowboysallday says: Apr 12, 2014 12:08 PM

    Romo throwing the game winning touchdown vs the redskins with a herniated disk…I guess that’s what choking means. Wait wasn’t that in Fletcher’s last home game too? Probably still crying

  11. chiadam says: Apr 12, 2014 12:08 PM

    I think Tiger is trying to figure out if he ever slept with Jessica Simpson.

  12. pilonflats says: Apr 12, 2014 12:11 PM

    Fletcher was soft, period. He was the king of going around blockers instead of taking them on, creating holes for runners to exploit. But hey, as long as you get your # of tackles, who cares about the team, right London?

  13. daysend564 says: Apr 12, 2014 12:12 PM

    Hey London,

    Romo has never went 3-13. That is how you ended your career. Congrats bud!

  14. steelerdeathstar says: Apr 12, 2014 12:13 PM

    Well, don’t know if the Cowboys are the ‘most loved’ team in the NFL?
    Funny comment by London Fletcher, though. Fletcher was one of the best, most consistent LB’s in the NFL for a long, long time, and should be a hall of famer. Nice to see he’s still quick on his feet!

  15. grimreaper12 says: Apr 12, 2014 12:14 PM

    Romo’s choking doesn’t hold a candle to the King of the choke, Peyton Manning.

  16. Xenu D. Alien says: Apr 12, 2014 12:15 PM

    Maybe stopping for breakfast at Taco Bell wasn’t the best idea…

  17. mazenblue says: Apr 12, 2014 12:18 PM

    Jerruh is lame, is he still following me?

    Thats the caption.

  18. timmons94 says: Apr 12, 2014 12:22 PM

    Cowboys are like the browns. Every year we hear about all this talent. Then u watch them and wonder where the talent is… 2 jokes

  19. cryeaglescry2020 says: Apr 12, 2014 12:43 PM

    Brokeback putting green

  20. 12444uggg says: Apr 12, 2014 12:45 PM

    It looks like Tiger is giving a lesson, and he’s board out his mind, while Romo looks like a kid in the candy store.

    Whoever got to the Tiger/Jessica Simpson crack first, you win.

  21. inallsincerity says: Apr 12, 2014 12:46 PM

    Is the name “Redskins” insensitive to Native Americans?

    Is the most prestigious American golfing event called “The Masters” insensitive to Black people?

  22. lolpftlol says: Apr 12, 2014 12:46 PM one cares about the Cowboys yet the writers and readers on this site are in a footrace to see who can get downwind the fastest anytime someone affiliated with the Cowboys rips a fart.

  23. roylp says: Apr 12, 2014 12:46 PM

    London has a Super Bowl ring with the Rams. So all the Cowboy haters shouldn’t have anything to say. Romo doesn’t have more than one playoff win in his career.

  24. brassknuckles47 says: Apr 12, 2014 12:51 PM

    If Romo would take the time that he spends on the golf course to practice FOOTBALL, he might be a better QB. Nawh…..let me rethink that.

  25. skinsfantom says: Apr 12, 2014 12:59 PM

    THE CAPTION READS: why the hell did i agree to play with this dolt.

  26. crewchief15 says: Apr 12, 2014 1:07 PM

    Players are always taking cheap shots, after they no longer have to face those players. Oh well just like their classless fans…

  27. charge1 says: Apr 12, 2014 1:12 PM

    Cowboy fans can only bring up how they beat a 3/13 team last year but not how Romo has lost every big game he has been in

  28. charge1 says: Apr 12, 2014 1:13 PM

    Btw London has a Superbowl Ring

  29. 1phd says: Apr 12, 2014 1:25 PM

    Romo thinking to himself. “OMG, did I just shart?”

  30. madmikepromo says: Apr 12, 2014 1:34 PM

    Taking shots at Romo isn’t really taking shots. Everything negative said about him in football related issues is simply truth tell. He is a quintessential screw up.

  31. gavriloprincip33 says: Apr 12, 2014 1:36 PM

    Fletcher is right – Romo is a stat queen and nothing more…

  32. baronvonmonocle says: Apr 12, 2014 1:44 PM

    Nobody care about the Cowboys anymore? I guess that’s why the top 10 most watched regular season games last year included 5 Cowboys games. And no Washington games, I might add.

  33. phillyphannnn83 says: Apr 12, 2014 1:55 PM

    Consistently missing the playoffs = better short game

  34. phillyphannnn83 says: Apr 12, 2014 1:55 PM

    …meanwhile during the NFL Playoffs

  35. deezysham says: Apr 12, 2014 2:04 PM

    Lol funny coming from a leader of some horrible Redskins Defenses who won as many playoff games as the cowboys since the 90’s

  36. gammynomnom says: Apr 12, 2014 3:07 PM

    Meanwhile, while Washington fans point at Romo, their QB is designing personal logos and filming another Subway ad after finishing 3-13.

    Keep pointing.

  37. craigmaitland says: Apr 12, 2014 3:12 PM

    London Fletcher career vs Dallas.. 5 wins 10 losses. Maybe run your mouth against a team that didn’t beat you twice as often as you beat them?

  38. kd75 says: Apr 12, 2014 3:22 PM

    “Tiger, my final overall score in the U.S. Open was a 1-under-par 287…They call me Tin Cup.”

  39. headpool says: Apr 12, 2014 3:33 PM

    Who is this Fletcher guy? Did he get a SB ring with an offense that had to put up 40+ points a game cause the defense was a wet paper bag? Don’t be jealous Mr. Fletcher plenty of D list celeb golf tournament invites are coming your way. Till I will go back to forgetting who you are

  40. doomsday1960 says: Apr 12, 2014 3:37 PM

    London Fletcher has been a class act. However, it appears he has that Cowboy envy. Should have been a Cowboy!

  41. flexx91 says: Apr 12, 2014 3:46 PM

    They may have beaten the ‘Skins twice but pretty much lost to everyone else. Try doing something to get your owner to change his stupid ways instead of worrying about what a retired player says.

  42. bearshaterseverywhere says: Apr 12, 2014 4:28 PM

    Definitely takes one to know one, London you just made the Redskins look worse than they already do with that comment. HTTR is code for Arrogant punks and chumps! No sportsmanship these days.

    I don’t like him at all, but Romo is actually a great golfer.

    London, ignorant comment dude.

  43. douglasgreenbriar says: Apr 12, 2014 4:34 PM

    When I read this headline i thought you meant he shot at him with a gun.

  44. commonsensedude says: Apr 12, 2014 4:38 PM

    Of course Tony Romo didn’t choke when they beat the Skins in Week 16 last year. He saves the choke for the last game of the season. And, as expected, he delivered in Week 17, losing to the Eagles.

    He is a good quarterback but the jokes will continue until he stops choking during make or break moments. Even Cowboy fans know it’s true.

  45. commonsensedude says: Apr 12, 2014 4:44 PM

    And, unlike Tony Romo, London Fletcher actually has a Super Bowl ring. So until Tony Romo gets one, London can say whatever he wants.

  46. shogunassasin30 says: Apr 12, 2014 4:56 PM

    Oh whatever…Romo is hitting the links with Tiger freaking Woods, sitting in luxury suites with ex presidents at championship games, has a smokin hot wife, and is A LOT better Quarterback than most give credit for. Tony Romo is doing just fine at life…

  47. thompgk says: Apr 12, 2014 5:24 PM

    London Fletcher of Bills game

    Got it

  48. fastspecv says: Apr 12, 2014 5:30 PM

    lol at anybody from the Redskins talking about choking!

  49. dcapettini says: Apr 12, 2014 5:35 PM

    All you guys are crowing about a last second TD against the second worst team in the league with perhaps the worst defense in football. Yeah, that shows us that that Romo has it going. The guy is one of the highest paid players in football. He is supposed to win games and not just against the DC Eleven when they are playing like the Little Sisters of the Poor.

    Here’s my caption. Tiger, “Isn’t it amazing Tony that you and I are the highest paid guys in our games and we don’t win anything?”
    Tony, “yeah Tiger, but at least you are a has been. I’m just a wannabe.”

  50. thrstr says: Apr 12, 2014 5:35 PM

    congrats cow-pie fans, Womo beat the 3-13 REDSKINS on the last play of the game?, that’s all you have?? Keep supporting the Jerry fiasco, the NFL wouldn’t be the same without you.

  51. tripsz says: Apr 12, 2014 5:50 PM

    Mr. Fletcher, how many playoff games have YOU won in your 7 years as a starter for the Redskins? I’m waiting….. and I’m sure it had nothing to do with your sub par coverage skills or your inability to shed blocks at the 2nd level.

  52. defscottyb says: Apr 12, 2014 5:58 PM

    The Cowboys haven’t been relevant since Jimmy Johnson was there. Even as a Redskins fan I had great respect for Tom Landry. Yeah I already know the Skins have been even less relevant. The Cowboys aren’t America’s team anymore, not until they win something again. Oh yeah, they need a real GM… Jerry is an oil man not a GM. Just write the checks and leave the football to the pros. I don’t mind Jerry he has heart and spends money like Dan Synder but just write the checks.

  53. cometkazie says: Apr 12, 2014 6:18 PM

    At least he is not Mark Sanchez.

  54. hairpie2 says: Apr 12, 2014 6:55 PM

    Jimy Johnson said the Cowboys used to tape other teams during games like the Pats and many others. looks like their titles are tainted. 😦

    oh, i guess the Dolphins are….. oh, nevermind.

  55. higheriqthanyou says: Apr 12, 2014 7:03 PM

    We know what London tweeted, but what he was thinking was “I wish I were good enough to play backer for the Hawks.”

  56. 10kmp says: Apr 12, 2014 8:00 PM

    Classy London. Way to take an uncalled for shot at a guy who is pretty professional and always shouldering the blame for Cowboys losses… whether they’re his fault (sometimes they are) or not (and many times they’re not). That was a cheap shot to be certain…

  57. olcap says: Apr 12, 2014 8:14 PM

  58. rccola66 says: Apr 12, 2014 8:41 PM

    It is more sad that a great player like London has to make a Name for himself putting down Another Man, I lost respect for you. tt thought yoo wen tm class ofthe NFL.

  59. bluebongzilla says: Apr 14, 2014 1:34 AM

    London who?

  60. trollaikman8 says: Apr 14, 2014 1:52 PM

    Good old “classy” London Fletcher.
    Yeah he’s real classy, just ask him.

  61. riggs068helldog68 says: Apr 21, 2014 8:43 AM

    Did someone on here blame Romo for the loss against the Eagles in week 17 last year? Thats pretty funny considering he didn’t play in that game. Although considering the ignorance I am not surprised he is blamed for that loss too. He did how ever play against the Eagles a few years ago, on the last game of the Season and it was for the Division Title. I know that not a big game but he won that game and beat them again the following week in the playoffs although that was not a big game either.

    Regarding the Fletcher comment, its a oxymoron . You can’t be as good a golfer as Romo and choke at the same time. If I were Romo I would invite Mr. Fletcher to his next golf outing and make sure he is paired with him. That should shut him up pretty quick.
