No Mo' Romosexuality
Till yesterday, I was going to suggest you visit these folks to fill any post-Christmas gift needs you might have missed; nothing says ho-ho-homer better than a "Romosexual" T-shirt. But after yesterday, no way does that seem like a good idea. The Cowboys QB played like the big-league rookie he is, tossing two picks like a guy trying to throw the game along with the football. In short: Come back, Drew Bledsoe, all is forgiven.
Fine, not quite. Still, here are some troubling stats: During the first give games of the season, when Bledsoe was under center, the Cowboys averaged 29.4 points per game and racked up a total of 361.8 yards per game. In Romo's last five starts, which include those horrific losses to New Orleans and now Philly, Dallas is averaging just 24.6 points per game and accruing only 340 yards per game. Actually, I have no idea if those numbers are accurate -- they come from The Fake Drew Bledsoe's Web site -- but they sound about right. So does this from TonyHomo.com:
On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me An overrated QB.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Two interceptions, And an overrated QB.
It goes on...and on...and on...kinda like opposing teams' receivers against the Cowboys secondary. --Robert Wilonsky
