Tony Romo discussed the possibility of having a small plate surgically attached to his collarbone in the offseason to prevent further injuries on a radio show early this week.
"We have a few ideas of what we can do with the collarbone," Romo told KTCK-AM 1310, via the Dallas Morning News. "If we have to put a plate in there, something small, we'll do that."
A plate or a chip? A chip that controls Romo's thoughts and actions. It would be programmed with the three laws of Jerry Jones Romotics:
• No Romo shall ever harm Jerry Jones.
• No Romo shall ever harm himself, except in an effort to protect Jerry Jones.
• For Pete's sake son, go get Stephen and me some brisket and beers. We're hungrier than a bunch of razorback hogs on a Christmas tree farm!
Robo-Romo can quarterback the Cowboys until his metal skeletal attachments start to wear out in 10 years. By then, the program to harvest cloned Kellen Moore organs for transplants will be complete.
Back to the here and now, the Redskins are slotted as the No. 4 seed in the playoffs. That means they can rest important starters, including Kirk Cousins.
And does that mean…Robert Griffin III will play? Jay Gruden told reporters Thursday he plans to start Cousins, but he gave no indicators as to how long Cousins would stay in there. It's a great chance to showcase Griffin and generate a little trade interest, perhaps even from the Cowboys.
You know a relationship is over when you can have coffee or lunch with your ex and feel nothing: no love, hatred, disappointment, desire, frustration or regret, just mild respect and kinship toward a fellow member of the human species.
This would be a great time for Griffin, the Redskins and their fans to prove they can all have coffee or lunch together.
Prediction: Cowboys 22, Redskins 17
