Offseason or not, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo can't escape his late-season struggles. 

It has been tough for Romo and the Cowboys to quiet the critics because they can't seem to get the job done. Not only does the QB have only one playoff victory in his eight years of starting, but Dallas has also missed the playoffs the past three seasons after losing winner-take-all games in Week 17.

At this point, Romo's name has become synonymous with the word "choke." Fans, players and the media all love making fun of the quarterback's struggles, even when it has nothing to do with football.

NFL AM held a caption contest this week in honor of the 2014 Masters:

Former NFL linebacker London Fletcher, who played for the Washington Redskins from 2007 to 2013, saw that as the perfect opportunity to unleash a zinger:

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.
