Donovan McNabb on Tony Romo's contract: 'Wow'

Tony Romo got paid Friday, but not everyone -- and not all of his peers -- agrees with the massive six-year, $108 million contract extension the Dallas Cowboys handed their quarterback.

This tweet from former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb landed seconds after the deal was announced.

"Tony Romo 6 yr 55 million dollar extension. Wow really, with one playoff win. You got to be kidding me"

Romo's contract numbers generated awe, alarm and agitation on Twitter.

Romo's $55 million in guarantees tops the $52 million guaranteed that Joe Flacco will receive as part of his new six-year contract with the Ravens.

The difference, of course, is that Flacco is fresh off Super Bowl glory and holds a 9-4 mark in postseason play. He has thrown 19 touchdown passes in the playoffs, and the Ravens have never missed January action during his five-year watch. If Joe was overpaid, what about Tony? McNabb, who later explained his tweet during an appearance on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access," isn't buying it.

Romo and his 1-3 playoff record have cashed in something fierce.
