Chris Cooley Loved Watching Tony Romo Choke, Wants to Fight Him in Cage

While several quarterbacks are on pace to throw for more than 5,000 yards this season, Tony Romo is looking forward to setting a personal best of his own: Amount of criticism thrown at a player in a single season. In fact, it could be an NFL record by the time 2011 comes to a close.

While NBA Finals MVPs stick up for Romo and tell him to ignore the haters, others saw Tony’s performance on Sunday as a microcosm for what his career has become: a lowlight reel of choking performances.  As the Washington Post shared with us, one of Romo’s division rivals decided to give him a few more boots to the gut while he was down on Tuesday.

It’s so good,” Chris Cooley told the Lavar and Dukes Show when asked about Romo’s three interceptions against the Lions. “I was watching the scoreboard in St. Louis, and I didn’t see that they’d lost really until they end, I thought they blew them out so I kind of stopped paying attention. It’s amazing, AMAZING to watch him choke like that.

“I’m just saying, I’m up 24 points in the third quarter, if I’m the head coach, I feel like I could probably just take a knee for the rest of the game, punt it away and there’s no way that Detroit’s gonna drive on you that many times,” Cooley continued. “The only way you’re gonna give up that many points is turnovers, right? It’s hilarious to watch him throw pick sixes, too, back-to-back. I loved it. But it wouldn’t be as good as my cage fight.”

Apparently Cooley talked about cagefighting with Lavar and Dukes last week, and on this week’s appearance he said he would love to beat Romo in the cage but would probably let him take a 24-point lead first and then “embarrass him.”

Something tells me it won’t be getting any easier for Romo in the coming weeks, so the best advice we can give him is just to keep on smiling.

    haha, Cooley and the guy who wrote this are such tools! what a bunch of sore loosing, pathetic, couldnt even hurt Romo with broken ribs, sorry bunch of nothings that live in D.C. that whole team is made up of losers. this writer is a pathetic fan who still isnt over the fact that even with half the team out for the game, Romo injured and the skins totally healthy, they still got their azz handed to them by the Boys. and Cooley, i dont doubt for a minute you were scoreboard watching, its because you lost your starting spot. hahah what a bum. And of course you hate the Cowboys, its called envy. and lastly, Chris if you ever happen to read this, nobody is afraid of your punkazz, I would take the Boys backup kicker against you… seriously, Buehler would punish you!

    Why is it idiots like Cooley insult players that are better then them at their own sport by challenging them to a cage fight or in some other sport. Real manly. Its just pure stupidity and jealousy. If he is such a bad ass cagefighter call Frank Mir or Junior Dos Santos and challenge them. Otherwise shut up.

    i think it’s funny! Tony Romo isn’t what he used to be. yet again, neither is his OLine. the reason you guys are so pissed off is because Cooley is right. just admit it :-)

    I am a big Cowboys fan, and I cannot stand fucking Tony Homo.  We are not going anywhere with him at QB.  He chokes too many times than he comes through in games.

    Was that Chris Cooley talking? As in Chris Cooley, 1 reception for 4 yards against the Rams? Nice contribution to the team. 5 catches on the season for 45 yards. I’ve been a lifetime Cowboys fan and  it is getting harder to defend Romo but are you serious? This guy is an idiot. Why doesn’t he  cage fight Jason Witten, an actual real tight end that knows something about contributing to winning football. Not to mention Witten would whip his ass. Maybe he should look across the locker room and see that he has Rex Grossman as his QB before he shoots his mouth off.

    Tony Romo always has been and will always be over-rated and mediocre at best. If the “Boys” wanna return to their winning ways invest in a quaterback who doesn’t choke. If you’re a Dallas fan, sorry, but sometimes the truth does hurt. One playoff win in how long? He is a choke artist in the playoffs. If you ever need a game winning field goal dont let Tony handle the snap. Tony Romo and elite should never be used in the same sentence. Also not a hater just an author of truth.
