NFL: Panthers play at Dallas tonight

Associated Press
ARLINGTON, Texas ó Cheer up, Tony Romo. Jake Delhomme knows exactly how it feels.
Those frustrating interceptions. All the griping fans. The support of teammates that you hope is sincere. A body of work that shows turnovers are just part of the deal, the downside of the go-for-broke style that lifted you from obscurity to Pro Bowler and multimillionaire.
Maybe they’ll talk about it Monday night, during warmups before Romo and the Dallas Cowboys play Delhomme and the Carolina Panthers.
Or maybe they don’t have to discuss it. Both have been around long enough to know the drill.
“When the good comes, it’s too good,” Delhomme said. “When the bad comes, hey, it’s bad.”
“It’s just a part of playing quarterback in the National Football League,” Romo said. “Everybody goes through it. If you haven’t, then you’re probably not a very good quarterback.”
Romo actually opened the season with a brilliant game against Tampa Bay, throwing for more yards than ever in what also happened to be his first game of the post-Terrell Owens era. There wasn’t much shelf life to that performance, however. In the spotlight of last weekend’s opener of Cowboys Stadium he threw three interceptions, each turning into a touchdown for the New York Giants on their way to a narrow, last-second field goal as time expired.
Delhomme’s season has gone the other way.
