A telephone call from future Hall of Famer Brett Favre, a trade for WR Roy Williams, and a day later, Tony Romo's pinky injury that was supposed to keep him out up to a month miraculously disappears. According to ESPN, Tony Romo has told the Dallas Cowboys that he can play through his pinky injury Sunday vs. the St. Louis Rams.
The phone call from Brett Favre came first. Around noon yesterday, ESPN reported that Brett Favre called injured Romo and offered his encouragement.
Let's get real. We all know what he really offered him. Brett Favre admitted that he told Romo he should play through the injury, if at all possible. Of course, we know exactly how possible it was for Favre to play through the pain...Popping some happy pills. I can just imagine what that phone conversation was like:
Brett: Your pinky hurts?
Tony: Yes, Brett. It's broken. I'm out a month
Brett: Well now your back is going to hurt, because you just screwed your team. You'll have to carry the weight of that on your shoulders for a long time.
Tony: Well what do you want me to do, Brett?
Brett: You promise not to tell?
Brett: I know a guy who knows a guy, who robs a guy. You'll be pain free come kickoff, every Sunday...4lyfe.
Tony: I don't know, Brett....
Brett: Trust me...
So Tony has that going through his head when about four hours later the Cowboys pull off a trade with the Lions that land them star WR Roy Williams. Now what QB in his right mind wouldn't jump out of his seat with a raging Woody Allen and want to go under center on Sunday to play with this revamped Dallas offense? He already had TO, Barber, Witten, and Felix to throw to and NOW he has Roy Williams. With those kind of weapons, you might not even need an arm, it'd be so easy. I completely understand why Tony suddenly wants to try and play through this thing.
It's still kind of suspect as to how he goes from missing a month to suddenly being able to play. I'd say ask Brett Favre as to what he said exactly, but he's a pretty good actor and he might not tell us the truth, you dumbass. Either way, something very weird is going down, and I don't like it. I hope someone gets to the bottom of this thing.
