Tony Romo has understandably taken all sorts of heat these last few days. A steady hand since his first start, that hand got slippery on one play and it cost his team another game at the least.
But while everyone's quick to place the blame on Romo, the Seahawks' Jordan Babineaux isn't getting enough praise. Despite the fumbled snap, Romo appeared to have a clear path to the endzone that would have turned him from goat to hero faster than you can say "Carrie Underwood touched my balls." But Babineaux came from nowhere to make a great, season-saving tackle for Seattle, and dammit, the man should get some props for it.
We would have liked to been the first to hate on Romo. We thought he was getting tongued far too much early on, and the fact that he's been rumored to be plugging up some hot girls just doesn't seem fair. But to place a loss on any one person stings. No matter who it is. Guess that's just our nature. Even if Jeremy Shockey fucked up in a horrible way, we'd probably feel a bit sorry for him. And Shockey's a guy we find ourselves rooting for to get hurt.
It's hard to find anyone else to blame but Romo -- the guy biffed hard, sure. Rather than looking at Romo as the goat though, perhaps it'd be better for everyone if we look at Babineaux as a hero. People like heroes, no?
And don't worry. Once Romo gets over this game, he'll still find his way into the pants of some foxy Texans soon. More celebs? Eh, maybe Tara Reid. Hear she'll do anyone.
