When the Cowboys lost to the Eagles in the last game of the year for the playoff spot, Romo said, "If this is the worst thing that happens to me, I'm fine with it."

What the hell is that, you're the quarterback of the freaking Cowboys. It better matter!

When I heard that comment, I couldn't help but think back to the draft when Brady Quinn fell into our lap.

If only we had drafted him, just think—Romo break his little pinkie and in comes Quinn, not Brad Johnson, and the rest, well who knows?  If Romo doesn't come through this year then maybe he should find something he cares about.

What happened to Romo? Maybe the fame of being America's team quarterback? Maybe the late nights? Maybe he really doesn't care?

I hope he does, and my worries will be just that—worries. But until he shows heart and leadership on the field, one can only think that maybe,  just maybe, he'd rather be with the Hollywood type then football folk.
