How can someone, anyone hate Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo? Reading this post, you’d think the guy had a strong case of Jessica Simpson envy.
Critics of Romo like to criticize him “for not doing anything” in the NFL. However, those who are avid fans of the team know that he has helped bring the team to winning status–at least in the regular season. Sure enough, Romo has yet to win a playoff game.
The Big Lead pounds Romo:
Romo is excellent at hitting a wide-open Terrell Owens. And he’s great at tossing the ball to his well-documented BFF, Jason Witten. Other than that, what does this guy do so well? He’s completely responsible for giving the Eagles life and letting them back in the game last night. At 14-6, the Cowboys could have gone down and crushed the Eagles. The game was headed for a route. Instead, Romo threw an interception. Followed quickly by his fumble in the end zone. Within minutes it was 20-14 Eagles.
I just re-watched the game tape, and I have to say Romo, who was 21-30, made several perfect passes in between cornerbacks. He was accurate and that deep bomb to Terrell Owens was largely due to Romo’s perfect fake to the left. The criticism is a bit harsh.
