Dallas Fans Putting Blame On Jessica Simpson

Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys lost to the New York Giants 21-17 Sunday night. And most of the blame fell on Tony's relationship with Jessica Simpson. Sniped Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw: "A lot of people thought Tony Romo made a mistake by taking off for Mexico with Jessica Simpson on the club's off weekend. He had a chance to prove them wrong by delivering a typical Pro Bowl Romo performance Sunday. It didn't happen."

The Associated Press also wrote that his loss certainly won't help him "quiet everyone who accused him of mixed-up priorities for joining girlfriend Jessica in Mexico last weekend." Near a video on "The Jessica Simpson Factor," the Dallas Morning News is running a poll on their site asking, "What do you think caused the Dallas Cowboys to lose Sunday's playoff game?" Jessica is a popular answer.

Tony himself admitted the loss "hurts. It's tough right now. I'll take the blame and I'll take the criticism here," he said, trying to deflect attention on Jessica. "That's why we're put in these positions." But teammate Terrell Owen said the loss " is not about Tony. You guys can point the finger at him. You can talk about the vacation. And if you do that, it's really unfair ... we lost as a team."

At Dallas' Hotel ZaZa, Jessica was overheard saying she was reconnecting with Dallas, "but that's what happens when your boyfriend lives here," according to the Dallas Morning News.


It is not fair to blame Jessica. He just didn’t play well enough. He hasn’t played well in the playoffs in the past either. Get over it Dallas. It is not his relationship, but how he is playing that is the problem. Your prized Romo is human you know.
