After blowing a 27-3 lead against the Detroit Lions, Tony Romo was under scrutiny again from voices around the world. Mavericks' forward, Dirk Nowitzki, tried defending Romo yesterday, but it looks like not much care.
Deion Sanders surely doesn't. 

The Hall-of-Fame cornerback voiced his opinion on the Cowboys quarterback on NFL Network:

"I don't understand this guy. Just when you want to believe in him, heroic effort, came back against San Francisco, they said punctured lung and everything. And we praised him, we said, 'Yeah, he's that leader, he's their guy.' And then you come and do this. What are you thinking? Sooner or later we've just got to quit guessing and assuming that this guy is the guy to get you over the hump, and say, 'You know what? This guy is always going to be great statistically, but he's not that guy that can take you to where you want to go.' And that's the Super Bowl."
 Romo did play pretty well going 34-of-47 for 331 yards and three touchdowns. He had a good rating, but what killed everything was the three interceptions he threw.

"Dallas Cowboys fans are sick of it," Sanders added. "We had (Romo) on our shoulders last week. 'Oh Tony, he's our king!' But now we want to stone him. I'm serious, that's the way (fans) feel about him because you can't trust him. I like him. Statistically, he's great, but you can't trust him."

Rival player and Washington Redskins' tight end Chris Cooley also added to discussion. 

"It's amazing, amazing to watch him choke like that. I'm just saying, (if) I'm up 24 points in the third quarter, if I'm the head coach, I feel like I could probably just take a knee for the rest of the game, punt it away and there's no way that Detroit's gonna drive on you that many times. The only way you're gonna give up that many points is turnovers, right? It's hilarious to watch him throw pick sixes, too, back to back. I loved it."
Then Cooley went a bit too far and started getting offtrack, talking about getting in a cage with Tony and doing some MMA fighting.

"For me to beat Tony? I'm gonna be honest, I don't know what kind of cage fighting skills he has," Cooley told the radio station. "I would probably try to incorporate my wrestling ability, like when I was in high school. Obviously it's been awhile, but I didn't like to beat people fast. I like to embarrass 'em a little bit. Like, take a 24-point lead, and then just play with it a little bit."

To me, all of this is just nuts.

I'm sure Romo doesn't care, but here's my opinion: He just needs to get into his groove. Cut the guy some slack. Your making look like he is as bad as Kerry Collins this year! It's just the start of the season and we got so many games to go. Maybe he can turn it around.
