Tony Romo to Tom Brady after Sunday’s game: ‘See you in February’ (vid)
Microphones captured Tony Romo seemingly telling Tom Brady that he looks forward to seeing the New England Patriots quarterback at Super Bowl 50.
The injured Dallas Cowboys quarterback, with his left shoulder in a sling, approached Brady and said, “See you in February,” in post-game footage from Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” following the Patriots’ 30-6 dispatching of the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.
While the undefeated Patriots certainly have all the appearances of a team more than capable of reaching the Super Bowl in consecutive years, the Cowboys have been plagued by injuries, most significantly those suffered by Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Sitting at 2-3, the Cowboys have much work to be done to even make the playoffs, much less making a run to the Super Bowl. Bryant reportedly is well on the road to recovery, with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones referring to the wideout as “Superman” given his amazing recuperative powers while indicating Bryant is still targeting a Week 7 return. Romo, meanwhile, is on the injured reserve/designated to return list, meaning the soonest he could return is Nov. 22.
While stranger things have happened than the Cowboys making a run to the Super Bowl, but it’s certainly a long shot. Even Jones conceded earlier this week that if the team doesn’t start winning some games soon, the postseason very well could be a lost cause by the time the two superstars return to the field.
Until then, the Cowboys will be relying upon Matt Cassel — Brady’s former backup — to lead the way after the team decided to bench Brandon Weeden. In other words, Romo’s statement that he will see Brady in February on the Levi’s Stadium field at Super Bowl 50 might be a pipe dream more than anything else.
