about it. let's try to talk now with the sports junkies. chris cooley saying he enjoys tony romo choke a little bit. >> i don't have a problem with it. it is a division rival. if he wants to stir the pot a little bit, i don't have any real issue with it. mike shanahan has some sort of issue with it because he just talks for 20 minutes and you don't get any nuggets out of him. now, he has his players yapping. i love it. >> it is great to see romo fall flat the next week. >> it endears him to the fans. it is the exact same sentiment that the people have. is a man of the people, even though he is in pottery. who is in pottery? >> does a man of the people get
