Few NFL players have taken more heat from fans over the years than Tony Romo. While statistics show the guy has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL for the past decade or so, fans only seem to remember the interceptions and injuries.

This season has been particularly rough for Romo. The guy broke a bone in his back during a preseason game in August, forcing him to sit out the first 10 weeks of the regular season. In his absence, Dak Prescott has turned in a sensational rookie season, leading the Cowboys to an 8-1 record and forcing team officials to make the difficult decision this week to demote Romo to backup duty.

Given all the sh*t he’s put up with over the years, you could hardly blame Romo for being bitter about this turn of events. But it turns out the guy has way too much class and integrity for that.

At a press conference in Dallas on Tuesday, Romo delivered a moving, inspirational, magnanimous, heartfelt speech in which he pledged to support Dak Prescott and accept his new role as backup quarterback.

Afterward, for once, Twitter had nothing but love for the guy. Take a look:
