Tony Romo Wins The WeekendDashiell Bennett11/09/09 11:00amFiled to: Weekend winnerTony RomoDallas CowboysAndy Reidmiles austinPhilip RiversAlabama Crimson TideIowa HawkeyesVince YoungMatt LeinartNflAppic31EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkIn sports, everybody is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like Tony Romo, who won the weekend by not making a complete spectacle of himself. When no one notices you, you're probably doing your job right.Last year, Romo's life—and that of his team—was an embarrassing and not very entertaining soap opera. He was dating an incredibly untalented tabloid star, fighting with his wide receivers (while secretly holding late-night trysts with his tight end) and the Cowboys missed the playoffs after he folded like a cheap suit during the stretch run. (Plus, there was Hard Knocks, Pacman Jones, Roy Williams, etc...) After a promising start to his career, it was looking like he might become the answer to a bar trivia question 10 years from now that would make people say, "Tony Romo? Whatever happened to that guy?"
