NFL fans far and wide, we are back. It may be the off season, but there are always goings on in the NFL, and I have got a few things to say about them. Let’s get to it. Break!
Green 88! Green 88! Hut, Hut!
ROMO GETS PAID, AND DONOVAN DOESN’T LIKE IT
Late last week, the Dallas Cowboys made Tony Romo the highest paid player in team history, signing him to a 6 year, $108 million contract extension, including $55 million in guaranteed money. Well, former quarterback turned analyst Donovan McNabb was not thrilled about the news, and had this to say, via Twitter:
Tony Romo 6 yr 55 million dollar extension. Wow really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding me

Hey Donovan, mind your own business! First of all, let’s take a look at Romo’s regular season stats, since he took over as the starting quarterback:
Folks, that’s pretty damn good. For comparison sake, look at Joe Flacco’s regular season stats:
These are stats that are comparable. Yes, Flacco just had an unbelieveable run that culminated in a Super Bowl title. As such, he deserved to get paid. But let’s not talk about Romo as if he is Ryan Fitzpatrick OK? Easy Donovan.
And by the way, how many Super Bowls did you win Donovan? He’s talking about Romo’s contract as if he is Joe Montana, in the playoffs and winning every year. Romo’s entitled to get his, and this is the price of doing business with a quarterback in this day and age. Get over it, McNabb.
THERE IS A NEW SHERIFF IN NEW JERSEY
For those of you watching the league from around the country, you may have noticed something in the coverage of the New York Jets. There hasn’t been any talk! The team has gone from leaking rumors every five minutes, to not even confirming that the sky is blue. They are actually focused on getting work done, rather than working the media.
The difference here is at the top of the team. Mike Tannenbaum was here, and there were more leaks than you could imagine. Now, nothing! There is a new sheriff in town, named John Idzik, and we love it.
