Last week I opined that Romo should start drinking at halftime so the Dallas Cowboys could win some games without him crumbling under pressure. Well, he did one better! He did drugs (I think)!
Now, I don't really know this, but let's look at the facts. He whined about a rib injury early on in the first quarter. By the second quarter he was playing like a debilitated school boy. It was funny listening to it on the radio as I was driving back from Louisiana. The guys on the radio were very pro Romo. So, he went three up and three down for like, I don't know, it seemed like, 10 series in a row. The radio announcers are like, "Well, Witten must have run the wrong route because Tony hit the corner back in the head with that ball." Then, immediately afterwards, they were, "Austin Miles must have heard the play call wrong because he was nowhere near where Romo threw the ball."
I'm guessing at halftime they took Romo in and gave him an injection of cortisone. He came back out after the half and looked like he was going to play, but then went back to the locker room for most of the third quarter still whining about his injured ribs.
Common sense dictates that the doctors in the locker room gave him an injection (better than cortisone) for the pain. I'm no narcotics expert, but that boy came out and won the game in the fourth quarter proving my theory from last week. He needs to start drinking at halftime, but hey, drugs work too!
