Robert Griffin III consoles Tony Romo
With everything that's going on today, there's this little item.
|Tony Romo is an NFL veteran and RG III is a rookie, but it was RG III consoling Romo after the Cowboys' final game of the season. Ben and Skin discuss. |
"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. And this game doesn’t mean anything," Griffin said to Romo on audio of the game that will air on Showtime's Inside the NFL on Wednesday night.
Pro Football Talk was the first to report what Griffin said to Romo.
It's been a difficult week for Romo.
Sunday night Romo threw three interceptions in a loss to the Redskins, dropping his record to 1-6 in win-or-go-home games.
Now the best thing to happen for Romo is owner Jerry Jones said he has a future with the Cowboys even though he has one season remaining on his contract.
