    Hope he makes it. Pretty nice grind in a playoff yesterday to advance. And I'm guessing there will be comments on concentrating on football. I don't mind this at all. If this is an alternative way to get the juices flowing and he is still working hard in camps, etc, then cool by me.

    He's a very good golfer and it's his own time. Right?

    Yeah, he isn't missing any football related activities and he actually skipped qualifying for the Nelson because of OTAs. He has tried this for years.

    And this is why the Cowboys will be nothing more than they are, because the leader of the team would rather focus on golf than football. Just like he focused on Jessica Simpson in Cabo rather than the game ahead or focusing on holding the ball on a FG....

    Would never see Manning, Brady or even Schaub, who is a pretty good golfer, do this. Romo's priorities seem to be bass ackwards....

    Did you read the article? He's doing this on his own time. He's entitled to do what he wants on his own time. He hasn't missed anything team related. And he won't.

    What is the difference between this and Cushing doing MMA?It is their own way of keeping their body/mind sharp while not doing football related events. He never misses OTAs. He never misses off season workouts. It's golf when he has open time. Baseball players do it during the season and so does every other sport. Child, please.

    As far as the Simpson thing. It was a week off and Witten and others went with him. Did they ***** about them?

    First off, you both know or should know I grew up a Cowboys fan and they are now still a team I support as long as they aren't playing the Texans. That said:

    So what if it's on his own time. Peyton, Schaub, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, etc. spend lots of their own time studying film to get better at football. Sure he can do what he wants with his off time, but he isn't showing the same dedication.

    The difference is pretty clear. The MMA program is not designed to teach athletes to be MMA guys, it is specifically developed to make them better football players. There is nothing about playing golf designed to make Romo a better football player.

    keep telling yourself that when they are sitting at home, again, because Romo's lack of focus.

    Cushing is using MMA for football training just like many use karate, i.e. Gregg Lloyd back in the day, to learn techniques for pass rushing. How the hell does golf translate to football? You know it has nothing to do with it. This is strictly a personal accomplishment for Romo.

    lack of focus has been an ongoing thing with Romo since day one and there is plenty of evidence to prove so. The golf thing is just another distraction. On own time or not, he should be using that time better himself at the QB spot, not better himself making 4 ft putts.

    Like I said, wouldn't see Manning doing this....

    all of this^^^^^^

    I too grew up a Cowboys fan, because that was all we got on Sunday's being 100+ miles away from Dallas. Denounced them when Jones fired Jimmy Johnson and went without a team till I moved to Houston in 99.

    You guys are too much. Concentration, foucus, being under pressure, mechanics....none of that has to do with football?Give me a break. The desperation to find fault around this place sometimes is hilarious...yet everyone on the Texans is the saint. A simple article turns into bashfest again...which is why I prefaced it because you can see it a mile away. MMA training is just another way to workout. If Romo is lifting with the team, training with the team and not missing study sessions, how is this a bad thing again? There is a reason why he only does it on off times and before the season gets rolling.

    This is how I know you don't know jack.....I'll leave your bait and typical wordy b.s. for another day. This sounds familiar around here. You do know Jimmy and Jerry are still best friends and Jimmy admitted he forced Jerry's hand and wanted to leave?

    Like I said you keep telling yourself that. Nothing in a Golf swing helps with football. 2 totally, way different mechanics are involved. I am sure you have played golf before and thrown a football and yet you posted that? And all that focus could be better administrated on the football field rather a 4 ft putt. But you keep defending him...

    MMA and martial arts teach techniques to get your opponent off balance, the MAIN reason Cushing was training with Glazer, Glazer even said this himself. You learn to use your opponents weight against him. Your comparison is apples and bananas...mostly just bananas...:jumpbanan

    When Tony playing golf in MAY hurts his play in September then we'll talk guys.

    Tony is out at VR every day working out and he's been working all spring with Roy Williams. He never misses anything the team requires of him.

    Well he needed MMA because of the juice...that's right, he is innocent

    You keep telling yourself you are right on everything when you just like to troll and start lame b.s. What is the difference between this and baseball players bringing their clubs to spring training and playing...which many do...or hockey players playing year around...which they do...or football players playing during training camp...which many do because I've seen the Cardinals in Flagstaff playing often. You do know it is OTAs right now and he has never missed off season work because of this? Please stop making stuff up to get your panties in a bunch about.

    Mentally ...yes. I've played both and there are alot of similarities in how you have to slow down your breathing and concentrate, etc. For a QB, this is a good thing. But then again, you are a troll. Way to skip the part about how you knew nothing about Jerry and Jimmy. Typical.

    What do dyou mean WWJD?They are supposed to lock themselves up and do nothing but look at playbooks and throw year around?Someone better tell 90% of the league this. Did you know Tom Brady was in France alot this off season with his wife and kid. Better get on him. What good could being in Europe do?

    Woo the Cowboy apologists are out in full force today.

    I can hear the announcer now. "What a great job Romo did looking off the coverage, scrambling outside the pocket and then striking Witten with a dart 30 yards down-field. It must have been all that putting and chipping practice this off-season"

    LMAO!

    Wow had resort to name calling? Troll huh?

    Oh now you are assuming he used MMA because he juiced and not to be a better football player? Wow how the wheels have fallen off...

    that is simple, None of those guys are trying to qualify for a PGA golf event. they see it a leisure sport, way to relax. But you keep defending your boy, he will show his true colors once again...

    My panties in a bunch, sorry fella, I'm not the one slinging troll names around trying to defend a player who is know for his lack of focus on the football field.

    Don't be mad cause I didn't see it your way and made a few opinions. Here, :blowakiss: that's to cheer you up...

    LMAO..have you read the Cushing threads?You are no longer allowed to use that phrase.

    There is no apologies here. It was a simple article that got hijacked by the usual suspects who have to rip anything Cowboy. Again, lets review....he hasn't missed and has never missed wiorkouts. He throws all off season with the WRs. He never misses camp or other workouts. He is playing golf on some off days.....which massive amoubnt of athletes do. And he says he keeps him mentally sharp. So what is the issue being blown up here?

    Resume hijacking. It's funny how I prefaced the hijack and yet people do it anyways. So easy, it's unbelievable.

    It's not name calling. You ARE a troll. You did it in the Dolphin GM thread and you do it in these threads. Yout make extreme, off the mark statements to inflame and then you just keep talking to hear yourself talk. A troll. Nothing you say makes sense and when people call you on it you say they mixed up your words. Move along here.

    BTW, why would leisure golf and playing the same type round where there is competition make a difference again?.....................
