Dallas Cowboys

The Jessica Jinx? Okay, What Then?

How do you explain Tony Romo's worst game as a Dallas Cowboy?

A) Cold, windy, atrocious throwing weather.

B) Absence of his pinkie splint.

C) Steelers' No. 1-ranked defense.

D) The Jessica Jinx.

In yesterday's excruciating 20-13 loss in Pittsburgh, Romo was down right putrid. He looked like a kid running around just to keep warm, not necessarily to make positive plays. He was like a baseball pitcher with a flaw in his mechanics. High and wide all day.

Worse, his ball security was amateurish.

In a conservative game where field goals became touchdowns and turnovers became killers, he had four ridiculous gaffes, not including an ugly "tuck rule" non-fumble where he literally passed the ball into his left hand.

Yet there he was. His old, smiling self.


Some folks think Jessica Simpson is moving/has already moved in with Romo at his house in Cottonwood Valley in Las Colinas. Other folks just think Jessica talks about him too much at her concerts.
