Former NFL DL Travis Johnson: ‘Tony Romo Is A Thief, A Loser’


Former Houston Texans defensive lineman Travis Johnson must not really like Tony Romo, because Johnson ripped into Romo something fierce recently.

Johnson was a guest on Comcast Sports Net Houston, when he was asked about Romo not being judged by wins and losses.  Johnson called “Romo a thief, and stated he hasn’t earned a dollar he received.”

“When Tony Romo got to Dallas he had everything around him and was a loser,” Johnson said. “At one time he had five Pro Bowlers on the offensive line. They have no passing game, so nobody’s worried about the run.”

Johnson was only starting at that point.  He had more.

“Tony Romo has not earned a dollar he’s been given in this league,” Johnson said. “Matt Schaub will get the job done. I believe in him. I played with him and against him. He can take this team to a Super Bowl. Can he win a Super Bowl? I don’t know. It’s a whole different ballgame once you get there. But he can take this team to a Super Bowl.

“Tony Romo is not that guy. He is a thief. They need to bring him up on federal charges right now. He’s killing the franchise.”

Tony Romo has thrown for more than 9,000 yards and 59 touchdowns over the past two seasons. His career passer rating is 95.6.

Johnson for his part has 136 total tackles in 3 sacks over a five year career.

  • No one cares what a “never was” thinks. why is this guy even being interviewed? Schaub can’t bring the Texans back from 17 points with 5 minutes left in the game. Romo has done that. Multiple times. Schaub is weak. he can’t take the Texans to a superbowl. this is coming from a Texans fan. I’d take Romo any day. Because he can beat elite teams and defenses.

  • Who the hell is Travis Johnson? Seriously, been a religious football fan for over 30 years and no idea who this guy is. Was he a starter? Just trying to get an idea of the qualifications of a person who comments on someone “stealing money” from an organization.
