Tony Romo invites Tony Dungy to Valley Ranch

When Tony Dungy ripped Rex Ryan for his liberal use of curse words on the HBO series, "Hard Knocks," Ryan invited Dungy to meet with him at the Jets' training facility. 

Tony Romo has made a similar offer in the wake of Dungy's critical comments about Romo's play in Sunday's loss to the Titans, in which Romo threw three interceptions. 

"Part of being a leader at the quarterback position is protecting the football," Dungy said on NBC's Sunday Night Football show. "You've got to do that to be a great quarterback."

Romo accepted the criticism, but said Dungy would be well served to see just how Romo operates up close. 

"He's right," Romo said, per ESPNDallas.com. "But if you look though, I think a lot of it is the decision-making process. We have to protect the football. That's part of it, too." 

As for the leadership part, Romo said, "I'd invited him, same as Rex Ryan did. He can come along if he wants to see. He can see it any time you're out here. That's just part of it. If you'd ask any of my coaches, you'd probably get a different answer. If Tony Dungy was in here, it'd be the same way."

Of Romo's five interceptions, four have come off tipped passes.
