Apparently, the quantity of people (if not the quality) who decide to spew vile all over Vikings QB Donovan McNabb continues to grow.

You remember Bill Romanowski, right? He was a two-time Pro Bowler, but he was also a jerk, kicking opponents in the head, spitting in other people’s faces and ending a teammate’s career by blasting his eye socket. So, good dude, right?

And it makes him the perfect person to comment on somebody with whom he never played, right? Right? Hello?

Either way, Romanowski was on Jim Rome’s radio show today and, well, he acted just like you’d expect -- he did his best Bernard Hopkins impersonation and ripped the hell out of McNabb for, as far as I can tell, no reason at all.

“The reason why Donovan McNabb is not in Washington right now is because he was lazy,” Romanowski said, via PFT.com. “He didn’t spend the time. Mike Shanahan likes guys who will work really hard. I narrow it down to two things. He’s either lazy, or he’s not very bright to pick up the offense. One or the other. I think he’s bright enough, I just think he was lazy.”

And, just for the hell of it, Rome asked how Romanowski would act around Broncos QB Tim Tebow?

“I would want to lay him out and put him into next year,” Romanowski said. “I’d have him so messed up mentally he’d be like, ‘Oh, God, this Romanowski is crazy.’”

Um, crazy wasn’t the word I was thinking about.

McNabb brings out the best in Romanowski

I remember Romo made an appearance on Jim Rome's show back in the day...the guy is a PSYCHO. The worst part is I like Jim Rome, but I have no clue why he keeps bringing this waste of sperm on his show.

McNabb brings out the best in Romanowski

Only those who have played QB are qualified to judge Donovan McNabb. Having said that Mr. Romanowski is qualified to talk about steroid abuse, anger management, violence in the workplace and being a a total jerk. 

Sometimes I wonder how Romanowski would do as an NFL coach. I can imagine a possible dialogue between him and a player he is coaching....

"If you don't knock the head off that guy on the next play I will knock your head off! Got that? Got that? Now go get him!!! (Romanowski would probably throw in a few curse words for dramatic affect).

Looks like the steroids did not make him crazy and violent. He was born that way.

McNabb brings out the best in Romanowski

I am surprised that he's still out of prison. This person was allowed to play the game in front of the whole world, from the commisioner to the restroom attendants, so full of drugs he was a danger to have on the field. Is that really how he suggest #5 play the game?  Critiques from someone with his demonstrated fondness for steroids and speed can't be taken seriously. They are for amusement purposes only. Thanks for stopping bye Bill.

Understandable media coverage, Romanowski is a bronco/Shanahan type. He was also an eagle shortly after the 49ers, but also played for the Broncos & Raiders. But his comments on McNabb are off base. The Redskins lack the tools and even if they didn't, they were oft-injured the season McNabb played in DC. At the end of the day, earlier in McNabb's career, maybe he could win more games with that starting 11 with a better defense. But look at this way, McNabb was one of the few QB's to have his own camp in Arizona every season. That shows he isn't lazy, just older now. His W-L record, as well as the Eagles over his career in Philly is a testament to how hard McNabb worked. It wasn't good enough to win a SB, then again, Jim Kelly went to 4 of them and lost every one of them, 3 of those 4 were blowouts. BR needs to do his interviews, because he can't play any more. so shock value is what he's good for. Like Charles Barkley, he's entertaining, most times to the point of absurdity and pointless drivel to fill air time. I can't even remember the last time Barkley was even funny. And like any of them, he had a buddy in Dwayne Wade, he even alienated that during playoff broadcasts. It's phony & not real. Anyone that would bash what McNabb has accomplished in a career simply hasn't watched the NFL for a decade plus.

McNabb brings out the best in Romanowski

Bill Romanowski is still as crazy as ever. He is basing this fact on what he believes happened between Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb? Sound facts there. Maybe Romanowski has someone on the inside giving him info though...we don't know that. But we do know he probably still carries his little tacklebox around with a tremendous mix of supplements to take every three hours.

And his comments on what he would do to Tim Tebow is even more classic and continues to speak volumes of his personality. Romo had a pair of endless motors on him. One in his chest to have him fly around the field like a bat out of hell and the other attached to his jaw bone to keep talking smack every second that he wasn't spitting.

What a freakin joke. How the hell you gonna call someone lazy when there isn't a natural muscle in your body you freakin juice head.  You should be calling yourself lazy for not working out naturally and not being on the sauce you blocked headed idiot.

I wonder if Romanowski would spit in Tebow's face after he put him down.

How would Romanoski know anything, he spend his career on steroids, and that's the turth. Maybe if McNabb was on steriods he wouldn't say anything about him. Oh yeah; and his wife was on steriod too. Check out the facts!

If Romanowski wasn't such a meat head, his point would be clear.

Name one former player/teammate that has ever complimented 5's work ethic. Not his physical training work out... not his practicing... but in the classroom.

Physical skills were always there for Don. But he never outsmarted the opponent. And like romanowski said, its not because he's dumb, it's because he doesn't do the homework other guys with less physical talent have done to be better.

I'm not ripping him because he gave us so many things to be happy about, but... lets face it, that criticism adds up.
