Rinse and repeat.
Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki is aware of the cycle of criticism Romo endures. The NBA All-Star took to his Twitter page on Monday in what we imagine is some kind of pro athlete civic brotherhood we aren't privy to.
"Dear tony romo. Don't worry abt all the critics," Nowitzki tweeted. "I heard that same garbage for a long time. Keep working hard and keep improving."
We love this type of earnest social media encouragement. Bernard Berrian should look into it. As for Dirk, the man is obviously uniquely qualified to dish out advice, however unsolicited it may be. He was once known as a star professional athlete in Dallas who couldn't get it done in a big spot. It took an NBA championship in June to change Nowitzki's legacy.
So, following that logic, all Romo has to do is reign in all the tendencies that tend to undermine him and bring back the Lombardi Trophy to Big D. Doesn't seem so hard, right?
