I'll give ya one thing...Romo is a better golfer. This of course is why he won't do much the rest of his career, Ya see, he has all the $ he needs and does not want to risk injury that would stop him from enjoying his 1st sports love the rest of his life...golf. Mark my words, he will avoid injury at all costs and thus take away much of his play making ability.
-- Before this year, he already signed a 67 million dollar extension so he's already got money and the new contract won't change much.
--He elected not to try to qualify for the US Open in 2012, and he cut back even further on golf this year. Golf clearly takes a backseat to football.
--And last but not least, Romo is an all around sports guy/competitor... Golf is just something that the media likes to run with. We was a pretty good basketball player in HS, and up until recently he also liked to play indoor soccer in north dallas suburbs-- which the media once tried to spin in 2010 or 11 or something, but anyone who frequented this indoor facility (*cough* Ntegrase96 *cough*) knew he'd been playing for years before that along with Nick Folk and Bobby Carpenter.
The guy likes sports. Including football. He's a competitor and he's not going to try to avoid injury. It's never been who he was and probably never will be.
He'll have decades to play golf when he's retired.
We all know the NFL has become a year-round affair, maybe you take off a month or two. Then again Tony has Januaries free ;)
Especially for a QB, having to prepare with his receivers and memorize plays, et al.
I question Romo's preparation and dedication. You don't see Peyton or Eli golfing, at least not enough to be a pro-amateur.
or do you think NFL QB is a part-time job?
