Tony Romo Throws 5 Interceptions, Criticized By LeBron James
Tony Romo had a rough night on Monday. The Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback threw five interceptions, matching a career high, and the scorn of Cowboys’ fans everywhere was expressed by a different sport’s star player.
USA Today reported that LeBron James, a well known Cowboys’ fan, tweeted multiple times during Dallas’ 34-18 beating at the hands of the Chicago Bears, with the first comment calling Romo out by name immediately after a slightly misspelled expletive that takes the Lord’s name in vain.
LeBron’s twitter account kept the hits coming with, “We gone need a BIG 4th quarter!”
The scorn LeBron James notwithstanding, Romo’s performance did take a toll on the Cowboys’ season. Shutdown Corner reported that Romo did complete 31 of 43 passes for 307 yards and one touchdown, but the Cowboys’ had no running game. Dallas ran the ball just 14 times which put the bulk of the workload on quarterback Tony Romo’s shoulders.
“Well, you have to get over it — it’s just going to suck for a few days now, obviously,” Romo said. “It’s going to sit there in your stomach and just eat at you. In different situations out there where you’re trying to do too much and help out different areas, I think that it’s going to catch up to you at some point in the National Football League. I’m going to have to reassess a couple of things that are happening and make sure that they don’t happen again.”
Romo was replaced by Kyle Orton in garbage time, and Orton made the most of his snaps by throwing a late touchdown pass with 34 seconds remaining in the game.
Tony Romo’s five interceptions went to Major Wright (2), Charles Tillman, Lance Briggs, and D.J. Moore.
If any other Cowboy fans are looking for something to watch other than Romo and the now 2-2 Cowboys, James has announced what he’ll be doing.
“Well at least i can always fall back and watch SpongeBob Squarepants,” he tweeted.
