I’m sure that, by now, you’ve heard that Travis Johnson went on television and threw Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo under the bus.

Before I go on my rant, I want you to think of the name Travis Johnson. Believe me, there is a reason you had to Google search his name.

Johnson went 16th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft to the Houston Texans. That pretty much sums his career up right there. That was the highlight of his time in the NFL. Aside from being a gigantic bust, Johnson is a nobody, an unknown former player and definitely someone who should have just kept their mouth shut.

“When Tony Romo got to Dallas he had everything around him,” Johnson said. “Tony Romo was given everything he’s got. He’s a loser.” As one of the other “panelists” and I’m using that term lightly, said that the Cowboys’ lack of a run game was part of the problem, Johnson rudely interrupted. “Because they have no passing game,” Johnson said. “Nobody’s worried about the running game.”

Johnson then went on to call Romo a thief, said that he hadn’t earned his contract extension and that current Texans’ quarterback Matt Schaub could get the job done. I don’t know about y’all, but I sense a lot of jealousy here. For someone who was paid to sack the quarterback, Johnson knows all about taking someone’s money and running, with his three career sacks and all.

Take Johnson’s comments with a grain of salt Cowboys fans, they’re coming from a guy who did nothing with the chance he was given in the NFL.
