Tony Romo Is Owed An Apology

I'm not the biggest Tony Romo slappy around, but I have to give him his due. It's about time plenty of others do the same. It was announced that Romo played yesterday's game against the San Francisco 49ers with a cracked rib. It was reported later today that Romo has a punctured lung.

Now I know many Cowboys fans have a love/hate relationship with Romo. It's true that he hasn't led them anywhere and was the goat in a week 1 loss to the New York Jets. But yesterday's performance was heroic. Before I get lambasted here, the Cowboys were doing nothing in yesterday's game when Jon Kitna was at the helm. So think about that for a moment.

There are plenty of players that would've sat out the rest of yesterday's game. Remember when Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler left last season's NFC Championship game because of a questionable injury. I do and he was ripped from coast to coast because of it. I'm not saying that because of yesterday's game that Romo is the next coming of Johnny Unitas, but what he did yesterday was beyond macho.

Maybe it's time to cut Romo a little slack and not focus so much on his negatives.
