Sorting the Sunday Pile looks back at the NFL weekend that was. It's also an unofficial Mittens blog.
I'm not a Cowboys fan. Far from it, in fact. Still, it's hard not to like Tony Romo. He's lovably goofy, which would make him something of a mascot if he wasn't such a good quarterback. But it's not his gutty performance against the Giants Sunday night in what can legitimately be described as a must-win game that merits a mention here, it's how he so deftly handles the incandescent media glare in his "aw shucks"Gomer Pyle sorta way. It's pretty amazing to watch, actually.
During Romo's postgame press conference following the Cowboys' 20-8 victory over the Giants, he made the point that unlike other sports, the NFL lends itself to all sorts of drama, most of it manufactured, because games only take place once every seven days or so. He was obviously referring to the Week of Ed Werder, which started with ESPN's resident Cowboys expert reporting that Terrell Owens was jealous of Romo's and Jason Witten's relationship (more on this in a sec).
