The "Stone Cold" truth about Tony Romo
 
Many of you know "Stone Cold" Steve Austin from his days of raising hell for Vince McMahon in the WWE.

But now, Austin would like you to know him for his skills behind the microphone on his new podcast, "The Steve Austin Show."

Austin usually uses his digital platform to interview athletes from the world of pro wrestling and mixed martial arts, such as WWE Hall of Famer "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels and UFC fighter Chael Sonnen.

But this week, Austin opened the lines up and took some calls ... and it didn't take long for the conversation to turn to the biggest sports hot button issue in his home state of Texas.

Austin was asked if he was a Dallas Cowboys fan.

"Man, I tell you what, I kind of float around on the NFL and if the Cowboys could get their (expletive) straight, I could say that I'm a tried and true Cowboys fan," the Texas Rattlesnake responded.

But Austin's problem with the Cowboys quickly came to a head ... and it's the same problem many Cowboys fans have had over the last several years.

"My problem with Dallas is I think Tony Romo is a damn good quarterback, but he (expletives) the bed at the most inopportune times," Austin said. "So when I look for leadership, I can't say that Tony Romo is the clear-cut leader."

Oh, don't worry Romo, you aren't the only one Austin opened a can of whoop ass on.

"Jerry Jones, love the guy, but you have to let someone else make the decisions," Austin added. "I think Jerry Jones is caught up a little too close in it."

Austin quickly turned his attention back to Romo though, and gave some insights into his issues with Romo's leadership abilities.

"I just read in the newspaper that he was going to spend more 'Peyton Manning' like time in the film room," Austin said. "Now, this is what, 6-8 years into his career? He should have been doing that from the get-go, so I think he's finally understanding what the game is all about."

Austin knows a thing or two more than you might expect about the game of football.

Before embarking on one of the greatest pro wrestling careers of all time, Austin, then known as Steve Williams, received a full football scholarship to the University of North Texas, but dropped out of school just before graduating and began training to become a pro wrestler in Dallas with World Class Championship Wrestling.

So, Romo might not want to take Austin's criticisms of the quarterback lightly, or he might just end up on the wrong end of a Stone Cold Stunner.

"He's got all the physical tools," Austin concluded. "He's inherently accurate, he's got a quick release. He doesn't have the strongest arm in the world, but he can damn sure throw.

"So he just needs to do some brain work."

And that's the bottom line ... because "Stone Cold" said so.

Still don't think Romo is the issue in Dallas.
Lack of leadership will do that to a team and it doesn't help they haven't had a real coach since Parcels.
Bunch of yes men since then... So Jerry Jones has been the coach imo

Actually he does. Austin, Bryant at WR, a good TE, RBs might be a slight problem and then you have the protection. But he has more to work with than most QBs in the leauge.

Dallas Cowboys' problems. NY Jets' problems.
Hey, I am not complaining about or that much too interested in other teams' business.

I am worried, anxious, concerned, can't wait and yet, sit here holding my breath over what is happening and is going to happen in Saints 2013.

DCowboys, Austin the Wrestler has said what just about everyone has said here and in the media.

Whatever with DCowboys.

I pull for the Texans over the DCowboys.
The Houston Texans are the Texas NFL football team.

I would like Texans to have a good year and a better year over DCowboys.

That's what I was thinking ... "Stone Cold" must logon to BlackandGold before interviews, :lol:.

Houston is the pride of Texas now, Dallas is yesterday's news.
