Romo OK With Line, Not That He Has a Choice



    Tony Romo has been pumping up his offensive line entering the season opener in less than two weeks.

    It's been in the Sporting News and even our own Scott Crisp mentioned it on Tuesday.

    Apparently, Romo is just fine that his center, Andre Gurode, is gone. So is his left tackle (Marc Colombo) and guard (Leonard Davis).

    That leaves two guys who have any significant experience in the NFL, left tackle Doug Free, who moves over from the right side and guard Kyle Kosier.

    So why's Romo so "OK" with all of this?

    Maybe marriage has made him a little crazy?

    Remember last season when Tony Romo came crashing to the turf in a game against the New York Giants and fractured his collarbone, which forced him to miss the final 10 games of the season.

    And in case you weren't aware, this team isn't much at all without Romo under center, no matter what you might say about him. Also, in case you weren't aware, the collarbone is the easiest bone in the human body to break and once it's broken subsequent injuries are more and more likely.

    On Sept. 11, Romo will face the other New York team when they face the Jets in the season opener.

    And you thought the Giants defense was scary. Look out, Tony.
