Tony Romo's Top 5 Performances

Categories: Dallas Cowboys

Tony Romo - Celebrate.jpg
Jerry Jones said he was "outstanding" despite last week's loss to the Jets. Sunday afternoon in San Francisco the owner almost shed a tear in talking about the quarterback's gutsy performance in a 27-24 overtime victory over the 49ers.

It's already been a controversial, mesmerizing, fluctuating season for Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo. And we're only in Week 2.

A look at where Sunday's performance ranks on Romo's hit list:

5. 10-8-07 -- After committing a gaudy six turnovers (five interceptions and a fumble), he leads Dallas to an 80-yard scoring drive in the final minute and then hits completions to Terrell Owens and Patrick Crayton after an onside-kick recovery to set up Nick Folk's 53-yard game-winning field goal in a wild Monday Night Football win over the Bills in Buffalo.

4. 12-9-07 -- Capping a 302-yard passing game and clinching home-field advantage throughout the NFC Playoffs, he hits Jason Witten with a perfect 16-yard touchdown pass with 18 seconds left to rally the Cowboys past lowly Detroit.

3. 12.6.09 -- Completes 41 of 55 passes for 392 yards and three touchdowns in a gut-wrenching, seven-point loss to Giants in New York.

2. 11-23-06 -- Throws a team-record five touchdowns in his first Thanksgiving Day start, leading Cowboys to easy romp over Buccaneers at Texas Stadium.

1. 9-18-11 -- Playing with a broken rib suffered on the game's third play in San Francisco, he keeps alive a scoring drive with a fourth-down pass to Witten, throws a touchdown pass to Miles Austin and then sets up game-winning field goal in overtime with a gorgeous bomb to Jesse Holley. He's had greater games, but not grittier. Hello, signature moment.

Look, he doesn't stink like Chuch or Stoerner or the gaggle of spares we have endured since Aikman. But, top 5 really? Isn't that a bit premature? I sort of expect a few more tries at the playoffs. Maybe somebody in the front office might be able to talk some sense into the GM occasionally. Maybe they don't have to stink on ice forever. He won exactly one game yesterday. Woot. It was a gutsy display.  Don Meredith did it too. Back in the day they didn't even know what the hell an ACL was. Kudos for going back out there. Do it again.

Jay topples formerly California now Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.LAAofA loses on bad throw (Aybar error), dropped ball on double play turn (Kendrick) and butchered throw home (Hunter), all in the bottom of the tenth. Angels now 5 back with nine to play.Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!

I'm late to the party here..what did Hambonita do wrong this time? Did he mis tweet or mis speak with mic cracked?

He did nothing.  That whacky fan has the running joke that Sweet Greggo was fired from the Cowboys pre/post.  It's biz as usual over at the station with 100k watts.

And I'm not a chick, Iphong has me logged is as said handle.  Don't know why, don't know how.  I said I was looking for a new one when someone hijacked What the Whitt?  Gonna run with it now.  Sorry no panty color updates.

no, the answer is if Greggo had talent, he wouldn't be stuck with Mr. RW Whitt.

I am going to post this opinion concerning the article above, confident that it matters to someone else who is bored enough to actually be reading comments on an internet article.

The internet article was designed for the boring bored guy cubicle who is sitting at his desk with the nothing to do but kick Richie in the nuts scenario?  Que?  The internet article is indicative of solutions that are by products of living in Dallas and working in a building.  Therefore, none of the therefore mentioned "reading comments on an internet article" persons shall be labeled functional by the governing board of the blog.  The board consists of:

The board governs with the facility that it will function as a "manifest" to that which holds it's end in the by product of Destiny; a stripper at Jaguars.

That was clutch....thank you Tony !  With that being said, this team is in BIG trouble.  TR is one big hit away from another "lost" season.  Running game?  Wat dat?  Dez?  The secondary?  Then you have to worry about Rob Ryan eating redball; or goring an ox during practice.  8-8 sounds like a real success.  The Pat's might beat them by 80 points at this point.  I can see it now, Tommy Terrific and Mighty Wes runnin' everywhere-like crack whores in a drug bust.  On a side note.  Go outside. Engage. Maybe take a walk, or better yet, a HIKe; you fat, flaccid computer dong with hairy nipples and seering backne that looks like a redrawn map of the Balkans, replete with explosions, crevasses and weeping old ladies.

Hey guess what?  LEGEND.

Recipe of the day:

Chicken Fried Chicken:Pound out the breastsdredge in flour, egg warsh and back into the floorcook in veggie oil on medium high for 6 minutesflip, cook for 6 more minutes dry with a towel

pour on pepper gravy (include a splash of white wine, sour cream, 7 spice and garlic in said gravy)

goes good with:sauteed squash in red wine vinegar, and a touch of parmbaby new potatoes (boiled) with bacon crumble and melted jack cheesespring mix salad w/ranchjalapeno biscuits or cornbread

Shiner or Bud....... cause Miller Lite and/or Coors will make you poop in "yer drawers".

Did ya'll smell that?  It's Lake Lavon!  Dallas hell?  Yup.......time to move to Tulsa.

Pats now team de jour. RSux (2-8, currently trailing O's 5-1 mid 4th) on the back burner. Readying for drydock?

Sawx be done. You "cain't" start a season going 1-9.  Drydock is coming. Love em Patsie's!  Love em.

Kergo, why are you always on Texas?  I'm a native.  I believe in "Merka".  I believe in Toby Keith!  With good Texans like Toby Keith and George Bush, we can succeed, or secede.  Heck, I believe in Miller Lite, Lake Lavon and redneck shit.  Hell, last week I went boat skiing in Lake Lavon and it was like heaven, with all the lake trash and smelly fat ciggy hags with Looney Tunes t shirts.  Walmart up?  Yessir!

In actual news the Rangers won yesterday, have taken a 4.5 game lead on the Angels and the magic number is down to 6.

So I'm thinking loose cannon Greggo gets a 48 hour time out, the tweets get deleted by this evening, and he's back to work on Wednesday with nary a word spoken about his hissy fit. Oh, and the Fan starts rotating a different host in and out of their pre/post so Greg and his persecution complex get back in the mix on those. Thoughts commentariat?

I think it was Greggo being Greggo...don't think he was fired from anything..Twas just old fashioned shitstarting and he'll be spraring all of the 1977 Monte Carlo drivers, that listen to the Fail, to death this evening with whats left of his vocal cords and Chef Bobby Gay as the co-host.

Ditto PlanoDave!!  Being a Cowboy fan negatively affects my blood pressure!!  Bottom line, the owner needs to fire his idiot GM!!!

Two Cowboys posts but no mention of Dez, Miles, Felix and Romo injured with 2-0 Redskins and Lions on the plate. Instead we get midweek filler truncated best of list.

How about you let the ink dry on the box score before proclaiming that #1? It was week 2 against an NFC West team with Alex Freaking Smith at the helm--if that's his top performance he's a pretty sucky player.

I've realized that Tony Romo is Ian Kinsler and Ian Kinsler is Tony Romo. Think about it.

--Both have numbers that support they're awesome in certain areas--Both have numbers that support they suck in certain areas--Both are polarizing because of those--Both have made critical errors in key situations or on routine plays--Both have won games because of talent--Both have lost games because of absentmindedness, mental errors, or lack of thought--Both have horrible body language and expressions, and can appear uncaring--Both sound generic and repetitive in interviews--Both have questionable leadership abilities given their ages, experience, and roles.--Neither are hall of fame worthy yet.--Both are frustrating as hell to watch.

Figured Chef Bobby Gay would rank Romo getting on stage with MetalSkool in the top five.

(POW!)

Be proud, Dallas fans.  Your super-star QB's top performances include come from behind wins against the Bills, Detroit and Tampa Bay.

And none of them involve the words "Playoff" or "Championship".

What a stud QB Mr. Romo is.  I am totally humbled by his ability to have decent games against mediocre opponents occasionally.
