Tony Romo gave a press conference yesterday about the Dak Prescott situation.
Kudos to Romo. It takes a lot to give up a starting position on the NFL, especially at the QB position. He is admirable for doing so in the public. Had he not said anything the distraction would have grew as the season progressed. Dak is playing very well and to be 8-1 in this league is very impressive. I deal with a similar situation with a veteran starting quarteback and a rookie draft pick who hadn’t played yet. We lost a game after game and the locker room tension built during this. Eventually one of our star players had enough and blew up after a loss. It was chaos and time for a change. Everyone knew it but know one would say it. Needless to say the team change quarterbacks and the team moved on. Until that point though the simmering resentment ruined the team until the change was made. My point is the Dallas Cowboys needed Romo to do this. In order for the team to continue with the season in a positive manner, the air had to be cleared. Now Cowboys fans can relax and see if Dak Prescott is the future, which he appears to be. If something happens to him you have a decent backup waiting named Tony Romo, class act.
Speaking of class acts, some chick is allegedly trying to extort money from Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, over a (yawn) sex tape. How original. I am sure TMZ has this story covered.
