Default Tony Romo

Quote:
SAN ANTONIO Tony Romo sat in the back of the meeting room at the Ihilani Resort and Spa last February, still unsettled from his topsy-turvy trip to paradise. Having ascended from the depths of anonymity to the sudden star of America's Team only to drop the ball at the worst possible time Romo had finally shaken off one of the most colossal playoff blunders in NFL history and was trying to enjoy his maiden trip to the Pro Bowl.

The Saints' Sean Payton, who was coaching the NFC by virtue of his team's defeat in the conference championship game, stepped to the podium and addressed his star-studded group for the first time. "You're all great players," said Payton, Romo's onetime position coach with the Dallas Cowboys, "but this week I need some people to step up and contribute on special teams."

Payton paused for comic effect before adding, "Romo, you're holding."

Everyone in the room cracked up, including Romo, whose mishandled field-goal snap with just over a minute remaining in the Cowboys' wild-card-round playoff game at Seattle had doomed Big D to a 21-20 defeat. A month later, the cocksure kid with the quick release had learned to laugh at his ghastly gaffe, which earned him a lifetime membership with a chair between Earnest Byner and Roger Craig in the NFL's Untimely Fumble Club.

And now Romo is one of the league's more intriguing protagonists as the 2007 season approaches. Can he propel a talented Cowboys team to its first Super Bowl berth since they won their record-tying fifth 12 seasons ago? Is that what it'll take for him to get paid? Will Carrie Underwood write a song about him if he pulls it off?

I'm optimistic. I am glad that a contract renegotiation hasn't yet become an issue.
