In sports media, hosts and writers love to mention Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys. Everybody seems to have an opinion: he’s not a “competitor” or he can’t “close it out.” While others like myself state, “he is a top 5 QB in the NFL”.
In my view, if the Cowboys’ defense was just “average or above average”, instead of “one of the league’s worst defenses”d, while giving up less yardage and points, Romo could seriously be the most popular player in the NFL with Super Bowl Rings on his fingers.
The NBA Hall of Famer, Magic Johnson has been a Dallas Cowboys‘ fan for many years. He is happy that his two favorite teams, the Cowboys and Oakland Raiders, practiced together at Training Camp.
Magic Johnson made some time to defend Tony Romo from other fans who love to bash him.
“What happens is he gets grief because everybody loves the Cowboys or you hate them, but you still watch them. One thing about Tony I love is he’s a competitor, and he’s smart. The dude is smart. And so he’s an all-around athlete. I hope that people understand that he puts up 400 yards and then they give him all the grief. I mean he can’t play defense, you know? Yes, I’m always defending him. I’m upset when they criticize him because he plays great games, but they expect him to do everything. He’s one guy who controls the offense and, trust me, when everything comes together, they’ll have a great season. And I’m hoping everybody can stay healthy, because that’s another reason both teams struggle is because they get those injuries to key guys.”
Johnson had a few other things to say too …
“I told them it takes a team to win a championship and win games, and everybody has got to play their role to a man. When somebody falls down or misses an assignment somebody’s got to be there to pick that guy up. It’s important that all 54 guys be on the same page or 50 whatever the number is, and that there’s no hidden agendas. Because what happens in sports when there’s hidden agendas, that’s when you lose. But if everybody can be on the same page, everybody can understand there’s one goal and that’s winning, then they have a chance. The thing about Dallas is they can score. They’re going to score points. If their defense can match their offense they’re going to have a great season.”
Tony Romo responded by saying, “He had some great words of wisdom. He just has a way to connect with people. Any time someone like that speaks, you’re going to hang on every word, so it was really special and great to see him.”
Regardless, Romo is fantastic for one thing for sure … media conversations.
