    Aye Sean, when are you gonna stop with the Romo articles. He’s gone, its time to get over him already. I hate to be a debbie downer but this article is a little sad. Your telling me Jason Witten needed Romo to keep him focused while Dak took over. Are you kidding me lol??? Were these two teammates, lovers, or both. So while the rest of the team embraced Dak with open arms and rode the wave, the veteran needed a shoulder to lean on because his QB wasnt out there…gimme a freaking break SMFH!!
