Did Tony Romo Use An Instagram Video Of His Son To Send A Message To The Cowboys?

Life in the NFL is a crazy one in the year 2017. I know that I've personally spent many hours browsing the Twitter profiles of certain players, trying to find a clue that'll lead to where they ultimately land. Sometimes the work is done for you with an obvious piece of information, and maybe that's the latest development in the case of Tony Romo. Did he just use an Instagram video of his son to send a message to the Cowboys?!

I told him it was bed time and he said "let's talk about that." He told me he has a deal for me. Hhhhmmm

A post shared by Tony Romo (@tony.romo) on

The video starts and plays in its entirety with Hawkins Romo, who turns five this April, as the featured star. Here is a transcription of it:

"Ok... deal? Pinky promise? Pinky promise!" -Hawkins

"What am I pinky-promising?" -Tony

"That deal! Ok? You're gonna do it, ok? Pinky promise!" -Hawkins

"Is it good?" -Tony

"Uhuh. It's good. It's a good deal for me. It's better for me ok, Dad? It's not for you, it's for me." -Hawkins

"Why would I take the deal then if it's better for you?" -Tony

WHOAAA. This is some serious potential fire coming from Hawkins Romo, who was actually the co-star of Tony's first Instagram video. Hawk is over here telling Tony to not only take a deal, but to PINKY PROMISE... and all of us have spent enough time around schoolyards to know that you never go back on a pinky promise.

Could this be absolutely nothing? Sure. Maybe this is just a matter of Hawkins being upset about being put to bed... in the middle of the afternoon. What? Yea, that's what Tony is selling this as! The caption reads: I told him it was bed time and he said "let's talk about that." He told me he has a deal for me. Hhhhmmm

HMMM indeed, Tony. We've all seen Romo evade defenders with his can't-replicate magic, who's to say that Tony can't put the same level of creativity into his online disses? After all, it has been nine - poetically, I might add - days since the Cowboys reportedly told Romo that they would release him, and it's been eight days since Free Agency officially began.

If you subscribe to the theory that this is indeed some insanely genius way of sending a message to the Cowboys and their braintrust, then what is the deal that Romo is avoiding? Is there a trade in the works? Does he have to restructure his contract? Is it a team that he doesn't wish to play for?

TELL US HAWKINS, YOU HOLD ALL THE ANSWERS!

We'll have you updated on the situation - assuming it's real - here at Inside The Star. Have a fantastic weekend.

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!

    This is fucking bullshit not only should romo still be the starter but now that they have screwed him over you not gonna show the QB with the 4th overall QB rating in NFL history enough respect to let him move on from your screwing I am and always will be a cowboys fan but jerry jones your a real sack of shit for doing this to him he deserves more than this and where ever he goes he will win a Super Bowl before our now cowboys

    • David Leech

      Nothing against dak he is great but last year romo should have taken back over as starter period and for the beating that romo took for this team he has had a few good players help but overall had it not been for romo thorowing the ball 60 times a game Dallas would have been the worst team in the NFL ever year at the end for all those oh romo sucks your fuck??? Idiots NO Dfense no recievers no running back until dak and for him to have those numbers shows that why he didn’t have a ring and the same reason dak won’t they just let the only good players on Dfense go and Elliot will be suspended for at least 8 games next year anyway see YA JERRY YOU SUCK BEYOND SUCKING AND THAT WILL BE YPUR LEGACY HOW SHITTY YOU DO PEOPLE

    • Chris

      A bro DAK is better then romo get over it we are moving on from him Dak beat tom Brady’s rookie record in interceptions bro he was a bad ass QB and is only gonna get better. Dak I’m with you bro get us a ring

  • Jonathan Ledwig

    To say Romo deserved to start over Dak is BS. First of all, Why would you ruin the confidence of a rookie just to get Romo back on the field. Give me a break. Dak did all he could to win for Dallas. I highly doubt Romo could have done any more than Dak did.

  • jay

    I hope tony reads these comments sometimes and reads this. Tony has a beutiful family. He is seeing what he will miss going into another season. Dont miss out on your kids growing up. He has been a great qb very underappreciated but is one or two more years worth it. He alreadt has a bad back. He gets hit the wrong way and when its time for him to be throwing his kids the ball and playing with them he could be too hurt or on pain pills. Tony needs to retire a cowboy or back dak up. He cant keep taking these chances.

  • Lewis yoder

    I can’t understand for the life of me why Romo didnt play last year when he was healthy and I can’t understand why Jerry doesn’t sit Dak the next 2 years and start Romo he’s a better QB, Dak still has some learning to do and to be honest Dak can’t move the ball down field. I watched every game last year and every time Dak had trouble moving the ball Elliott wasn’t running good. I think just about any QB in the league could have had the same record Dak did behind that offensive line with Elliott running like that. Why hasn’t anyone seen this. Brady got hurt his replacement young gun came out and won for him but when Brady was healthy Brady gets his job back and they win they are the champs. Why one word experience. If Romo would have played we would have made the Super Bowl. Maybe we win maybe we lose but we would have gone to the big game and we would have done it by doing right by a man who literally put his life on the line to win games for us. I would like to say thanks Romo and it’s a shame to see you treated this way. Jerry has no Honor. I think winning is important but how you win is just as important. Can’t stand listen Jerry did Troy wrong a long time ago and Cowboys haven’t won since. This was there chance to do the write thing by Romo and make things write again but they failed screwed Romo over just like Troy and now they will be punished another 20 years with no big wins it’s Karma Nature’s way. Just saying Patriots did right by Brady and look what happend, colts screwed over Manning and look what happened Denver picked him up and a couple of Super bowls. Jerry should keep Romo and sit Dak and watch the magic happen

    • deal with it

      the magic happened this year-a rookie winning 11 in a row. Romo’s time has passed. it is what it is.

Maliek Collins Playing Excellent for Cowboys Defense

John Williams

Published

Maliek Collins

For the Dallas Cowboys on the interior, a lot of the news consistently surround the availability of Defensive Tackle David Irving, but Maliek Collins is playing excellent right now. While I'm willing to be very patient with Irving because of the elite talent he brings, Maliek Collins should continue to start for the Dallas Cowboys at 3-technique defensive tackle.

Collins has been a player that the Cowboys have bounced between the nose tackle and the 3T position with the hopes of getting their best players on the field, and because of the lack of a consistent presence at the 1-technique or nose tackle position. Well, with Antwaun Woods taking control at the 1T, Collins has been able to play at the position where he's at his best. The 3-tech.

He hasn't put huge numbers in the sack column this season, but that doesn't mean he's been absent from being the disruptive player he's been through his first two and a half seasons.

During the Dallas Cowboys five game winning streak, Maliek Collins has led the Dallas Cowboys defensive tackles in total pressures with 13, according to Pro Football Focus. PFF combines sacks, quarterback hits, and hurries into their "pressures." Collins hasn't recorded a sack during the winning streak, but he has four quarterback hits and nine hurries. He's tied with Tyrone Crawford for third in total pressures behind DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory over the last five weeks.

Over the last five weeks, Collins leads the defensive tackles in solo tackles with five and is tied with Crawford and Antwaun Woods with three run stops on defense, according to Pro Football Focus. Collins has also has two tackles for loss in the last five games and recovered Tyrone Crawford's force fumble on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Collins had six sacks in his rookie season when he played primarily as the 3T, which allowed him to see more one-on-one blocks against opposing interior offensive linemen. Especially with the way the rest of the defensive line is playing.

With the Cowboys on the road to face the Indianapolis Colts this week, Collins is going to have a tough matchup with a very good Colts offensive line, in particular, rookie Quentin Nelson. Collins ability to get pressure on Andrew Luck on the interior is a huge key for the Dallas Cowboys this week. We know that Gregory and Lawrence will get their pressures, but if Andrew Luck is able to step up into a clean pocket, it will make for a much more challenging game for the Cowboys secondary.

Collins has proved to be up to any task over the last five weeks and if he's able to keep playing at such a high level, he'll make the Cowboys coaching staff, and the rest of Cowboys Nation forget about using other defensive tackles. For the Cowboys to make a deep push in the playoffs, they'll need Collins to be a big time player for them moving forward.

Amari Cooper

For the second time in just three weeks, Dallas Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Cooper scored three touchdowns, including the game winner in overtime, to lead the Cowboys to victory last Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. He has 10 catches for 217 yards, which led all NFL receivers last week.

Dallas Cowboys on Twitter

After his record-setting performance during week 14, @AmariCooper9 is the FIRST #DallasCowboys to win NFC Player of the Week twice in a season! → https://t.co/kvBDIeOgBd #ProBowlVote #ProBowlVote #ProBowlVote #ProBowlVote #ProBowlVote #ProBowlVote

As the official website stated, Cooper is the first Cowboy to win the award twice in the same year. He's also the first Cowboy to be named Offensive Player of the Week since Ezekiel Elliott in 2016.

Before this year, Elliott was the only Dallas player to win the Offensive award in three seasons. Cooper has now done it twice in three weeks.

Since being traded to the Cowboys, Amari Cooper has amassed 40 catches for 642 yards and six touchdowns.

His wasted time in Oakland may keep Cooper out of the Pro Bowl this year, but he's already become a fan favorite in Cowboys Nation. Congratulations to Amari for another well-deserved award!

David Irving Out Again for Cowboys, Does Defense Need Him?

David Irving Out Again for Cowboys, Does Defense Need Him?

Dallas Cowboys Defensive Tackle David Irving, once a key member of the team's defense, will not make his return after all against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. For the second straight week, Irving was reportedly trending towards suiting up before being ruled out. The Cowboys haven't missed his unique presence for 13 weeks (playing against the Jaguars and Redskins), including through an ongoing four game win streak that began with a win against these Eagles on the road.

In that road win, veteran Tyrone Crawford recorded a sack and three tackles, while Antwaun Woods added two for a Dallas defense that held Philadelphia to 23 first downs and 71 rushing yards. The Eagles managed to cross the Cowboys' 30-yard line just four times.

There are many scenarios in which the Cowboys could have cut ties with Irving for not being worth the off-field trouble he's caused - beginning the season with a four game suspension. The absolute best case scenario is what they've realized amidst this turnaround, with other defensive linemen taking advantage of the opportunity left behind by Irving.

While it can still be true that Irving would make more splash plays than the likes of Crawford, Woods, Maliek Collins, and Caraun Reid, this defensive tackle group deserves praise for their ability to step in. Pass rush ability is one thing teams can't have enough of, and the Cowboys are missing some with Irving, finding ways to win thanks to the other traits these defenders bring to the table.

Cowboys Passing Game Coordinator Kris Richard may effectively be the team's defensive coordinator with an emphasis on the back seven, but DC Rod Marinelli's impact is still felt - particularly up front. Regardless of where they're lined up and deployed, the Cowboys front four is expected to be disruptive on every snap, something this scrappy unit excels at.

Prepared once again to play on the edge this season, Crawford is thriving at his original position of 3T-DT. Crawford has two sacks, nine total tackles, and three other hits on the quarterback over the past four weeks. Leading by example with a relentless spirit on every play, Crawford has meant just as much to the Cowboys defensive ends as Irving could.

In a short period of time, the Cowboys have gone from building up Irving thanks to his transcendent ability to make those around him better to simply -- and importantly -- being better across the defense.

Led by DeMarcus Lawrence as their premier rusher, the Cowboys defensive line is a lot for opposing offenses to contain. The "Hot Boyz" work up front has allowed Linebackers Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch to play fast and make plays all over the field.

Maliek Collins, battling back from his second broken foot in three years, is proving again he's a patented Marinelli guy. Collins' play speaks for itself when considering if the Nebraska product is best as a 3T or 1T tackle. Wherever he's asked to play, Collins creates penetration with an explosive first step and can finish at the quarterback with an array of power rush moves.

At 7-5 and fighting for their playoff lives, the Cowboys are done making excuses on the 2018 season. Their strides on defense speak for themselves, and with a group that keeps Dallas in every game they'll play, the door remains open for David Irving to earn snaps again when ready.

The Cowboys don't know any better than their play without Irving right now, and as winners of four straight, it's worth questioning if we'll see Irving over the last three weeks of the regular season.
