Yes, Tony Romo played with a broken rib. But let’s look at his line from the game: 255 yards, 7 yards/catch, 0 touchdowns, 1 interception, 70 passer rating. There is nothing spectacular about that. There was nothing spectacular about that game, in general. Yet this morning, Romo is the GUTSIEST GAMER this side of Brett Favre, who managed to WILL his team to victory on the strength of his TOUGHNESS alone. To wit!:
And my personal favorite:
This is the same quarterback who, in Week 1, lost the game for the Cowboys against the Jets and left everyone wondering why he just “can’t get it done” in “crunch time.” Now he rules the NFC East after a sloppy, six-field-goal win. Amazing how a broken rib can alter the narrative.
UPDATE: Sportscenter will not be outdone in the Romo fellating sweepstakes:
