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

Tony Romo

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?!

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.

    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.

WR Brice Butler Makes Waves With Controversial Comments

Kevin Brady

Los Angeles Rams @ Dallas Cowboys: By the Numbers

Heading into this 2018 offseason, the Dallas Cowboys have to answer some critical questions about their wide receiver corps.

  • Is Dez Bryant still worthy of being labeled/targeted as a number one receiver?
  • Is Ryan Switzer ready to dethrone Cole Beasley as the team’s starting slot receiver?
  • What in the world do you do with Terrance Williams?
  • And, lastly, do you bring back last year’s WR4 Brice Butler?

Well, it appears that final question answered itself earlier this week.

Free agent wide out Brice Butler took to Fox Sports to voice his opinions on his future with the Cowboys, stating that if he isn’t going to be a starter, he isn’t going to come back at all.

“I think in this league, when you think about the business aspect, you’ve got to follow the money trail… Both of our starters made money. Terrance [Williams] just got paid last year. So there were times where I was like, ‘I’m making plays, aren’t we trying to win games? Why am I not on the field?’ But that’s the only thing that I can really think of.” -Brice Butler

Butler also made waves with a comment on Fox’s Undisputed, claiming that if given the same chances as Dez Bryant, he would have been more productive than Bryant was this season.

I am totally for a player getting the money he feels he deserves, and I wasn’t really “for” the Cowboys bringing back Butler anyway, but he probably sealed his fate In Dallas with his comments. This is the same team that cut Lucky Whitehead last offseason to send a message, and has tried to “clean up” their locker room with the “right kind of guys” lately, so it’d be hard to imagine them re-signing Butler now.

Even though I don’t think it’s that outlandish of a comment for him to make. I mean, why shouldn’t he want an opportunity to start somewhere? Unfortunately for Butler, I doubt that opportunity is in Dallas.

Plus, we all thought Butler should’ve gotten more chances during his time here, dating back to the disastrous season in 2015. And when he did get chances, Butler showed flashes of how valuable he can be.

Still, I think the Cowboys should draft a wide out to be their much-needed Z receiver, and signing Butler would just add to the log jam of pretty mediocre players at the position already.

Could Brice Butler have been more productive than Bryant? I guess we’ll never know. But it’s astounding how this rather average football team cannot help but make the news each and every day.

Straight Outta Dallas: Cole Beasley Releases His First Rap Single

During an offseason filled with concerns for Cowboys Nation, Cole Beasley sure helped fans take their minds off coaching changes, free agency and draft prospects for a moment. Bease took Twitter by storm when he tweeted a link to his first single as a rapper… yes, you read that right.

Cole Beasley: an NFL Wide Receiver by Day, Rapper by Night

Cole Beasley on Twitter

80 Stings – Single by Cole Beasley on Apple Music

Listen to songs from the album 80 Stings – Single, including “80 Stings”. Buy the album for $0.99. Songs start at $0.99. Free with Apple Music subscription.

“ColdNation Records” is the name of the company Beasley created alongside music producer Victor Clark, to release his first single. You can listen to “80 Stings” on iTunes, Spotify and just about every digital store, as the tweet above mentions.

I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t know what to expect. But when I turned the volume up and played the song for the first time, I was surprised. It’s awesome.

When Beasley caught that football behind his helmet versus the Giants back in week 1, I thought “man, that’s it. Beasley can’t surprise me anymore.” Well, he proved me wrong.

“80 Stings” isn’t only performed by him, but also written by him.

It turns out Cole Beasley has been writing since he was in college. And if you already listened to the single, you know he’s awesome at composing, and his flow is actually very quick.

The whole song is pretty entertaining, but it does have some verses that stick out more than others. We all know Beasley has been an underdog his entire football career, so it comes as no surprise that he introduces himself as “Mr. Slept On”, for instance.

Throughout the song, the 28-year-old receiver shouts out his wife and his children (and the fact he’s saving money for when they go to college, something we had already seen him proudly mentioning on Twitter.)

Jerry Jones and Dak Prescott both got their own name-drops on Beasley’s “80 Stings”, too.

“But Sunday, Jerry’s boss now,

I’m a dog when Dak get the ball out,

Pull the sauce out…”

– Cole Beasley on his first single, “80 Stings”

The rest of the album, according to “Killa Beasley”, will be released this Spring.

Cole Beasley insisted this is just a passion and that in no way will it affect his football career. So, really… don’t worry about it. Just enjoy this awesome thing he decided to share with his fans.

This time of the season can be sort of stressing for Cowboys Nation. A lot of changes in the coaching staff that may not be the desired ones, a lot of players Dallas needs to bring back, and just the aftermath of a disappointing 9-7 season.

It’s nice to have something like this to talk about, for a few days at least.

From all of Cowboys Nation, congratulations on this achievement, Mr. Slept On!

RG Zack Martin, DT Maliek Collins Undergo Successful Surgeries

Zack Martin

With the NFL Draft, free agency, and of course the ongoing playoffs, providing so much for fans everywhere to focus on, it can be easy to forget that recovery is one of the most critical aspects of every team’s offseason. After the grind of a 17-week season, the Cowboys are recovering — both physically and mentally — as they slowly turn their attention towards building their 2018 roster.

Starting RG Zack Martin and DT Maliek Collins are both expected starters at their respective positions next year, and both players are now coming off of offseason surgery.

Zack Martin, whose name will remain in headlines through the spring as the Cowboys look to sign their franchise RG to a long-term deal, underwent successful elbow surgery. This will cause Martin to miss this month’s Pro Bowl, which he was named to for the fourth time in four years.

LT Tyron Smith is also not expected to play in the Pro Bowl.

In what was an inconsistent season for the Cowboys’ offensive line in performance, health, and cohesiveness, Zack Martin and this minor procedure should be the least of Dallas’ worries. The expectation is, of course, that #70 will be just fine to lead the way for Ezekiel Elliott moving forward, and likely paid considerably more by the time he takes the field again.

For DT Maliek Collins, it was surgery on his left foot that was minor enough to wait until the offseason — although the injury did appear for Collins on the team’s weekly injury reports throughout the season.

With David Irving effectively losing his 2017 season — a four-game suspension followed by a lingering concussion — Collins was asked to play more of the 1T position in his second season with the Cowboys.

Overcoming a broken foot from his rookie training camp to flash real potential as a 3T in 2016, expectations for Maliek Collins had to be tempered once he transitioned to the less “glamorous” 1T spot.

Defensive tackle is not a position the Cowboys have invested in heavily during recent years, so monitoring the health of Collins, while deciding where he best fits Rod Marinelli’s scheme, will be important as we approach the draft.

Like Martin, Collins should also be available for April’s return to work for the Dallas Cowboys.
