Think Tony Romo is immune from criticism now that distraction-creating wide receiver Terrell Owens has been shipped out of Dallas? Think again. From DallasNews.com (via ProFootballTalk.com):

WFFA Ch. 8's Joe Trahan asked Cowboys defensive back Terence Newman last week about Troy Aikman's take that Romo "hasn't fully grasped what being the Cowboys quarterback is all about." 

Newman's reply: "I think that with the situation Tony was in, I think that kind of maybe hurt him a little bit - being a first-year starter, then you have the limelight with his girlfriend (Jessica Simpson) and situations of that nature. It's going to take away from him being a quarterback, being a successful quarterback. He won 13 games and everything was perfect, but now after this past season, it was, 'Is he doing enough for the team? Is he working hard enough? You know, he's got this girlfriend, so ...' I think that once he inherited the starting quarterback job and his relationship got into the national media attention, I think that that was something that definitely hurt and took away from Tony Romo being a great quarterback."
