Pat, I am in total agreement with you. Jessica Simpson did not deserve what he did to her. It will be his turn soon.

jamilyn on

I am sorry but the guy is hot. I have to have alone time everytime I see him. I know… sad isn’t it? lol. Then again I love ***holes. They are so much more fun.

Becky on

I don’t know either Jessica or Tony but I feel sorry for Jessica I think that Tony is a jerk he could have been a good sport about the party. Jessica deserves a mature, older gentleman.

angie on

He is hot! It didnt ask about Jessica. It asked about the ad, and the ad is H-O-T. Hot! Go COwboys!

marky on

Can’t stand the Cowboys and can’t stand Tony. He’s almost as big a jerk as his owner, Jerry Jones. His mama needed to teach him some manners and how to treat a woman, but I guess she thought football was more important than being a real man. What a loser….

Joelle on

Tony who???

Stephanie on

I think he looks kinda fat.

Lisa on

Tony Romo is a great guy, football player, man, etc… Jessica Simpson is most likely a needy pain in the A. I can’t believe he dated her in the first place, and for so long. I wish he and Carrei Underwood could have made a life together, she is darling and he is HOT!!!!!

Lisa on

oops! Carrie – sorry for the typo.

Stephanie on

I f only he played that well on the field. He’s falling apart on the feild lately.

Reesie on

TY Angie n Lisa! Ad is amazing and so is Romo! So sick n tired of hearing about Jessica Simpson oooh poor Jessica no one and I mean NO ONE knows what went on with that relationship and why exactly he broke up with her but obviously she wasnt doing the job so she got fired PERIOD does no one recall newly weds (need I say any more??) and she needs to shut up Cowboys dont need nor want her support…move on chica Romo has :) HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS!?!?!?!

lori on

A great football player????? You gotta be kidding???? Have you seen him play???? USELESS!!!!

Jen on

I’m a huge Cowboys fan from back when we had a team worth remembering. I think if we had a quarterback who didn’t choke we’d be better off. As for the commercial my son who plays Pop Warner thinks its very cool. So it accomplished hitting the kid demographic. It would be better with a respectable winning quartback. Unfortunately the Cowboys haven’t had one since Troy… Ah the Glory Days…

hp on

that’s one of the lamest ads…

Selena on

Well, I am old enough to be Tony’s mom and I would LOVE to be. I think he is a total gentleman and does a lot of wonderful things for a lot of people. He is a guy any mother would be proud of. I sense a lot of jealousy in the comments. Just because he didn’t want to date Jessica Simpson doesn’t make him a bad person. None of you were there and remember…there are two sides to the story. He is a winner in life and the best thing about him is……HE DOESN’T CARE WHAT ANY OF YOU THINK!

Mike Zolscher on

Jessica Simpson is a total immature pain in the a**. She wanted to have a Ken and Barbie birthday party. How embarassing. Tony can do so much better than her.

Blondie on

This ad stinks!

Brittany on

I totally agree with hp, this is the lamest ad i have ever seen. Also, when do we ever see him run with the ball, we see him throw it away, but that is about it. Who cares about Jessica Simpson, she is a joke, i dont get her and dont understand her. Its called trial and era, you date someone to get to know that person and if doesnt work out u dump them. But it was bad on Romo part, did he not watch newlyweds and see her at her worst.

Nicole on

i hear you reesie!!!!

Jill on

Love you Tony! He didn’t write the ad, he only does what he is told to do in the ad. Any one of you Tony Romo haters would give everything you have (which probably isn’t much) to be him and have what he has. GO TONY! GO COWBOYS!

Lizzie on

THANK GOD, Tony, dumped that idiot jessica!!!! Hoooooooray!! Really cool ad!! You’re a WINNER since you dumped “tub o” &&&&& all of her neediness!!!!!!!!

Mandy on

Um excuse me.. this is about football and NOT Jessica Simpson? There is certainly more to the man that Jessica Simpson! He is a very talented quarterback for a well established team. I repeat.. has NOTHING to do with some blonde bimbo that wanted to play Barbie and Ken. Get that thru your head people

kristie on

tony is an awesome quarterback, & he looks hot in this commercial. :)

jessica who?

jessica Mabbutt on

he is a hot jerk!

Kristen on

How could Tony Romo do what he did to Jessica that was so mean to do right on her bday eve. If I was her i wouldnt let him back into her life if they ever get back together. Tony is so hot in these ads though.

Gina on

Okay for the Pat,Gloria, and Becky,before you start calling the Quarterback of America’s Team a jerk..and boo-hoo for Jessica let’s not forget the way she ended her marriage to Nick Lachey. Yeah she’s a real winner. The only person willing to put up with her is daddy and Tony is too much of a man to play into “daddy’s” little games. He is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO better off.

shiela Kerr on

Tony Romo and the Cowboys are going no where fast. I am happy for him that he got some commercial endorsements but he will not survive in the NFL because he is not the most talented quaterback. In addition I agree with the Post regarding Jessica Simpson. She poured her heart out like a lot of us females do and he stompted on it. Carrie Underwood was smart, she quickly left this mess of a man.

whatever! on

Jessica deserved it. She disgusts me. GO TONY!!!! GREAT AD!!!!

Amy on

The ad is pretty cool really.

As for Jessica – So happy for Tony he got out of that relationship when he did.

Maria on

He is NOT hot! He looks like Gonzo from the Muppet Babies.

Katie Atkisson on

Tony Romo is a punk, just like the rest of his team mates. Not only did he treat Jessica Simpson like garbage on her birthday after an almost 2 year relationship, he wears newsboy caps. He looks like Britney Spears circa 2002. YUCK


Naomi on

Great Ad, love Tony Romo! Go Cowboys, as for the bashers do your homework before you bash him, he is a gentleman! So he broke up with Jessica, it happens, you don’t marry everyone you date!

Lisa on

Who cares about Jessica Simpson, were talking sexy Tony Romo. He is great and I don’t know why everybody dwells about Jessica. Go Tony you got it going on.

julie clark on

He is a hottie and I would look at him everyday! He wasn’t the first guy to do ditch Jessica Simpson so do hate on him!

Jack on

The raiders may not put up too much of a fight, but if this offense does not start scoring more then we can forget about the post season.

Management has no problem spending the cash,but it seems like they keep bringing in the wrong people to run this outfit.

Jill on


Jessica Simpson is no Angel!!! whatever happened happened we are talking football and commercial! The commercial that I just watched did not have anything at all to do with Jessica Simpson! So move on and get over it! Tony has

marky on

Tony has no class and he can’t play football worth a darn. He has no class and it shows; few of the Cowboys do. I’m from Big D, and lots of us feel that way. It’s been a long time since the Cowboys haven’t been an embarrassment as far as their behavior is concerned. I’m not a big Jessica fan, I’m just saying he isn’t much of a class act and he can’t act at all. He also stinks at football.



brendan on

can you please stop hating on this guy. romo is the man and if he had some help on the cowboys he would be top 5 QB in the league. he shouldnt even have been with jessica simpson in the first place. his colossal mistake was not staying with carrie underwood. jesus take the wheel.

maria on

Wow..very sexy! Romo is awesome..haters be gone!

rb on

Sorry people, Jessica has had a few great men in her life and if she can’t hold on to them, then it’s not the guys fault that she is such a dumass. Besides Tony what about Nick he is GREAT, what do you have to say about him!! Jessica is all into her self & got what she had coming to her!!

Evan on

Tony can read the phone book and I’d pay to watch him. He is HOT HOT HOT! Who cares about no talent Jessica Simpleton. Team Tony :)
