This tweet from former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb landed seconds after the deal was announced.
Tony Romo 6 yr 55 million dollar extension. Wow really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding meâ Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) March 29, 2013
Romo's contract numbers generated awe, alarm and agitation on Twitter.
The difference, of course, is that Flacco is fresh off Super Bowl glory and holds a 9-4 mark in postseason play. He has thrown 19 touchdown passes in the playoffs, and the Ravens have never missed January action during his five-year watch. If Joe was overpaid, what about Tony? McNabb, who later explained his tweet during an appearance on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access," isn't buying it.
Romo and his 1-3 playoff record have cashed in something fierce.
