Well... we now know of at least one person who believes Tony Romo should not start next year for the Dallas Cowboys.

Along with one person who will not be winning any Father of the Year awards any time soon.

A man has posted a video to YouTube in which he takes aim at a Romo jersey draped over a washing machine, needing multiple shots to blow up his target, all while his (presumed) kids and wife cheer him on.

"HE GONE!," the woman in the background bellows after her husband finally hits his mark, while a child giggles loudly. Watch now and try not to cringe too hard for America...
