What does Tony Romo and the St. Regis in Monarch Beach have in common? More than you might expect.
According to ESPN: A few years ago outside a ballroom at the St. Regis Resort in Monarch Beach, a community within Dana Point, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones came up with the term, "Romo-friendly," in discussing his team's plans.
Jones' definition: "Romo-friendly means let's utilize his skills to the fullest and make sure everything we do maximizes his abilities," says the ESPN story.
"Unfortunately for Jones that tag has stuck and things have not been too Romo friendly, especially lately," says ESPN.
"If Sunday's overtime victory against the Cleveland Browns proved anything, it's that the Cowboys will need Romo to play nearly perfect to win," says ESPN.
It also reports: "Romo dropped back to pass 59 times. He threw 50 passes, was sacked seven times and scrambled twice. It was the second time Romo threw at least 50 passes in a game and did not have an interception. He did, however, lose a fourth-quarter fumble that was nearly disastrous."
If the Cowboys are going to make it to the playoffs, it will be because of Romo, the story states.
