Tony Romo, former star quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys made the headlines recently for his back pains at a golf game for The Match. Romo was one of the best QBs to ever play for the Cowboys but his success did not extend in the postseason.
His reputation was hampered by his lack of postseason wins and Super Bowl appearances. He won only two of the six playoff games and never advanced beyond the divisional round. He still holds most of the Cowboys’ records such as passing yards, passing touchdowns, and many more.
Tony Romo had back pains while playing charity golf match
Tony Romo started for Dallas from 2006 to 2015. During the 2016 preseason, Romo suffered a back injury that stopped him from playing and opened doors for current Cowboys star, Dak Prescott. Following the 2016 season, Romo retired and joined CBS Sports to become the lead color analyst for their NFL telecasts.
The 42-year-old was recently reminded of his back injury when he was playing against Sam Cianciola in The Match. Romo’s back pain caused him to literally drop his hands on his knees as his opponent putt from the 14th green. In spite of excruciating back sores, Tony Romo managed to emerge victorious. Cowboys Nation was reminded of Romo’s last season in Dallas and the reason for his retirement. This led to quite a hilarious response from the fans.
