Tony Romo Talks Expectations, Bathroom Breaks and the Eagles (?)

Yes, in fact, Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo did drop the P-word Tuesday during an exclusive interview on 105.3 The Fan.

But not to worry, it was the one that rhymed not with wussy, but rather kiss.

During training camp Romo was refreshingly a non-story. Collar bone healed, his throwing motion was smooth and accuracy uncanny. Coming off a lockout off-season in which he organized team workouts, his excessive golfing and lack of leadership weren't questioned. And now a married man, he didn't appear on the cover of tabloids with various starlets.

It was about football for Romo, which can only be a good thing for Cowboys fans. And I expect this answer to a stark lowering of expectations will also enthrall those who have in the past questioned the quarterback's passion for winning:

"My expectations don't lower ... It rubs me the wrong way every day I go home if I don't feel as though I performed that day. From a team perspective, whenever I line up and put a jersey on I'm not out here to finish second place. ... I don't think I'm ever gonna go out here and be like, 'Well expectations are lower, we're just hoping to be a pretty decent ball club'. That's not who I am. ... I think our expectations are still high. ... We've had the hype and all that going into a season. Other teams are getting it now and that's fine. But that doesn't mean anything. All that stuff will get washed away and they've got to line up on a football field and play us. That'll be a fun deal."

He said other teams are getting the hype and he looks forward to lining up and playing them. If When Rob Ryan said that it'd be it was national news.

As for Romo's training camp bathroom routine ... 

Weird.

And yet another cheap advertisement for his radio gig. Doesn't The Observer care that this is just a promotional tool for this Tool?

And seriously, the obsession with Romo's junk is just creepy.

Damn you Richie. You had me click the more button, so I unwittingly gave you two clicks for this cut and paste article. You win today. To get you set up tomorrow on possible ideas:-should the Cowboys consider Terrell Pryor?-strip clubs in San Antonio vs. Dallas-Paternity leave woes in sports and should players even have kids?

Well, one out of three of those should help you get a jump start on tomorrow.

I'm going to lay off of you for a few days, Mr. Richie Whitt.  Do not fret, I will still read and opine, but will be a decent, humble fellow.

Per your twitter feed, this interview was done at 530 and then replayed at 630. So a rehash of a rehash. Oof.

"Five yard pass to Witten", get use to it. Leadership from Romo, there is no F'n way. Jerra has tried to make this team "Romo friendly" due to his QB lacking leadership. Romo's a golfer that happens to play football for a paycheck.

Great fucking post, Richie. Good shit as always.

I like the new commercial on the Fan where you guys point out you have two interviews a week with the real Jerry Jones, an obvious reference to the motherfucking Ticket's fake Jerry.

One station has real news, the other fake news. The Ticket is still the king, but the kingdom is gradually getting smaller.

Looks like the readers have to look at the Ticket's own Robert Wilonsky to get anything on the local baseball team in a penant race.

Hopefully, this won't be seen as shilling for your competition.

Why does every damn Cowboys prostate massaging post have to have turn into a commercial for the awful,awful,awful RAGE? The show was actaully listenable when you did middays. Now its just crap. I tried to listen the other day and you have turned Greggo into a Rangers hater and a Cowboys homer. Now matter how bad the Hardline might be at times, its no where near as bad as the Tardline.

Really? C'mon guys..prepare the sharpest toed manly footwear you have. One other thing RW, just as we feel you shouldn't shill for your other job up in heara, I for one, ain't gonna click on a link to said other job either.  Tony goes peepee, and doesn't like finishing 2nd..sounds like everyone but RW, he'd be estatic with 2nd place. POW!

No offense man, but RW doesn't even know who you are. You are new and tiny compared to some of the heavy hitters up in this bitch.

I'm thinking this could be a new alter ego for one of the regulars. I seem to recall one mentioning that they were working up a new bit.

I believe that it is fair to say that more of the listening radio public will hear Fake Jerry than will hear the real one on the blow torch 100K watt station.

Richie does think he's pretty fly for a white guy.

Its also fair to say that more people like fake Jerry than the real one.
