Bigger choke: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

Which choke job was worse, Phil Mickelson blowing the U.S. Open with a one stroke lead on the final hole or what Tony Romo did last night? I would have to say Romo myself.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

Well being a huge fan of one, and a hater of the other one....I'll be realistic.

Its Phil Mickelson in a landslide. Tony Romo choked for sure, but thats somthing that happens from time to time. Should it have? No, but it does.

Mickelson on the other hand was the biggest choke job I've ever seen. If you put any proffesional golfer in that spot, they would get it done. The guy litterally looked like you're everyday beer league golfer on that final hole. The difference too, is Mickelson had chance after chance to make up for his inital mess up. Romo's was boom, messed up, over. Phil lined up and took 7 shots and they were all equally terrible.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

As far as impact goes, Phil Mickelson cheated himself out of more money...Romo cheated himself, his teammates, the Cowboys organization, and every Cowboy fan on the planet.

Romo rakes it by a mile. Way to go Romo!

Mickelson.

If someone wants to call what Romo did a "choke" I don't have a big problem with that but in fairness, as woeful as Bledsoe was looking early on, Dallas probably isn't in the playoffs without him. Also, he did what he could last night, and he did have his team in positon to win. His "choke" was one lightning-quick moment that had come and gone almost before anyone knew what had happened.

Mickelson KNEW he was choking and couldn't do anything about it.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

Do you think it was just a random fumble, or was it caused by the pressure. Was he thinking, I got to get this down or was he just not consentrating enough? Its such an easy thing to do, that if it was due to pressure it was him as the biggest choke job.

Well, I dont think he was concentrating to be honest. I think everyone thought it was over, and if it was either of those two, he just wasent thinking about it.

My other question about last night....

Is what the hell was Terry Glenn doing on that hail mary. Did he just not see the ball or what because he had a very serious chance at catching that.........but he didnt

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson.

Easily because he is a legend and Romo is nothing. Phil fell over a long period of time and he knew he was slipping. He was at the top of his game and was a vet. Romo is just some over hyped loser.

In the end Romo is nothing, and personally I would expect something bad out of him in a big game.

Phil does have three majors, so he is pretty accomplished. He'd probably have even more if it wasn't for that Woods fella.

Re: Tony Romo or Phil Mickelson

Tony Blomo! This guy is the most fraudulant NFL player out there.

How does he get selected to the Pro Bowl over Vick when Vick broke a NFL record that stood for 30 years!

LT broke a record that was made last year and he was an automatic bid for MVP.

That's what happens to fruadulant people, they get exposed, and last night he just opened the door on his own dark room.

No question about that, what eased Mickelson's choke was that he had just won the Masters a couple of month's earlier.

I don't know if I would label him a fraud because his hands got wet and he took his mind off the task at hand.

He did lead them to a point where a simple play might have won the game for them.

Is Betts a fraud for fumbling away the St. Louis game?

Or how about the entire Yankees team in the 04 ALCS vs the Red Sox.

Ahhh yes, that can still bring a joyful tear to my eye!

Romo brought them there, without him, they would have rivaled the Skins record. It's amazing how fast the Dallas faithful (I know, that's an oxymoron) have turned on their "savior". He was the second coming of Jesus in Dallas, now he's David Koresh.

NOT EVEN CLOSE. It's Hefty. Romo played OK at his main position. He just mishandled a slick ball. Next year he won't even be holding on kicks. Hefty just flat out choked as did Montgomerie. Actually Monty was worse cause he was only 170 away and already in the fairway. All he had to do was hit the green with a 6-7 iron, three put and he would have won.
