In the immediate aftermath of the Cowboys’ season-ending loss to the Washington Redskins last week, Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III approached Tony Romo at midfield. This is standard operating procedure in the NFL of course, but what Griffin III told Romo was a little less predictable than the meeting itself.
In a segment that will air on Showtime’s “Inside The NFL” next week, the rookie can be seen offering some words of encouragement to his Cowboy counterpart, who was visibly upset after throwing three interceptions in the win-or-go home match-up.
“Hey Tony. I just wanted to say to you, don’t listen to what anybody else is saying about you. You’re a great quarterback, man,” Griffin told Romo, per ProFootballTalk. “And this game doesn’t mean anything.”
Of course, the game did kind of mean something--it decided the NFC East and, from an individual standpoint, provided more ammunition for Romo’s many detractors, who are quick to point out Romo’s uninspiring record in games of this sort.
