Tony Romo to make an honest woman out of Jessica Simpson?

Word on the street is that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has chosen Jessica Simpson to be his tight end for life, no matter how un-tight her end eventually becomes. Us Weekly talks to friends of the couple who think they're getting hitched.

"I think they're going to get married," Romo's close friend of three years, Michael Starr, says in the latest issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now.

Starr's prediction comes on top of Romo's former fling Sophia Bush telling Us, "I think they could go the distance.

"They're perfect for each other," the actress, a mutual friend of Romo and Simpson, added. "They're both funny and wonderful and kind. I'm rooting for them."

Many Cowboy won't share her optimism, although it is nice to see, as the picture indicates, that Cowboys fans would support gay marriage.

Romo was brutal against the Giants in the playoffs, just days after pictures surfaced of him on vacation in Mexico with Jessica. A lot of fans, misguided as they may have been, felt like Romo's atrocious play was her fault.

I prefer to believe that Romo's poor play that day was due to the Giants defense. After all, they had shut down Tom Brady and the Patriots offense in the Super Bowl, and I don't believe that Brady had just spent a week busting through Jessica's coverage.

But what do I know? All I did was watch the games. I don't even subscribe to Us Weekly.
