Just when you think that Jessica Simpson might possibly be making decisions on her own, a source tells Page Six that when it comes to her new romance with Tony Romo — it was none other than the perpetually creepy Papa Joe Simpson pulling the strings.

Joe and Tony have been friendly for a while. Joe is a huge Dallas Cowboy fan, and Tony has always had a crush on her – he even said on his Web site like a year ago that it was his dream to date her.

Jessica has been in Nashville and Dallas recording her new country album. When Tony found out, he called Joe and said, ‘I know she’s not dating anyone right now, can I take her out for a drink at least?’ Jessica said it was OK for Joe to give Tony her number and they hit it off.

Well, good for them. Because nothing says true love like a pervy dad lurking menacingly in the background tenting his fingers and leering at his daughter’s rack. Plus, on those nights where Tony’s had a rough day on the field and doesn’t feel up to lovin’ — he’s always got a backup quarterback, if you know what I mean. And I think you do. But just so we’re all clear, Joe Simpson wants to bang his daughter.
