Will Tony Romo Choke Again In the Playoffs

Cowboys vs. Eagles 11/8/09 Highlights

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo hasn't had much luck in the playoffs since taking over as the starting quarterback of "America's Team."

The Cowboys were about to beat the Seahawks in the 2006 playoffs when Romo fumbled "the snap" that led to a missed 19 yard field goal. The 21-20 loss was the first of his playoff career. The following year, Romo's team fell 21-17 to the Giants.

This is Romo's fourth season as a starter and his third post-season, an impressive showing considering he made the Cowboys' roster as an undrafted free agent. There aren't many players leading their team to a playoff who came into the league undrafted.

That being said, a loss in the first round this year could cement the choking reputation that is slowly engulfing his reputation. Will he be jet-setting with Jessica Simpson or another famous singer? Will he be with his teammates when it counts most?

There are many Cowboys fans out there. The team has one of the strongest fanbases in the NFL. But there are more Cowboy haters than fans and they are sitting back waiting for him to fail. The question is, will he? Or is this the year he finally knocks the monkey off his back?

Although Andy Reid's Eagles didn't even show up for their meeting on Sunday, I believe the Eagles will be much more competitive next week. The Swami is calling for a final score of:

Philadelphia Eagles 27 - Dallas Cowboys 24

You heard it hear first. Tony Romo will not choke this year, but he will be outplayed not by Donovan Mcnabb, but by DeSean Jackson who will light up the Cowboys. McNabb will throw a half dozen passes at receiver's feet like he does every game. If they could only wear gloves on their shoes, McNabb would never throw an incompletion!
