Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was booed when announced into the Pro Bowl tonight. He ended up completing his first six passes and led the NFC to a touchdown run by DeAngelo Williams. But on the next drive he threw a game-ending interception. The AFC won 41-34.
I didn’t quite expect the boos for Romo. The game was in South Florida and I’m not sure what the fans had against Romo.
The boos and the interception were quite an ending for Romo, who had one of his best seasons as a Cowboys starter. He is already the team’s leader in seasons throwing for more than 25 touchdowns. Only Danny White and Roger Staubach have done it, both twice for the Cowboys.
I think the comparisons of Brett Favre and Tony Romo are spot on I think. Romo hasn’t thrown nearly as many interceptions as Favre did early in his career, but they both have a knack of losing games.
I believe Romo does win a Super Bowl, and he’ll go down as one of the Cowboys great quarterbacks. It may be in 2011, in Cowboys Stadium. That’s a feat no team has ever accomplished.
