The big criticism that many have for Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo is that he struggles late in the season and hasn’t shown a consistent ability to win the big game. Those concerns are a big reason why many people were left scratching their head after former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach said he believes Romo has what it takes to win it all.
“He hasn’t been the problem,” Staubach said. “He’s done unbelievable. He’s right at the top of the NFL as far as a quarterback — as far as his statistics and the things he does. He moves around the pocket. He makes great plays. Our quarterback is not our problem in Dallas. We’ve got a Super Bowl quarterback . . . I really believe that the league is so close in parity . . . and Dallas is the kind of team with Jason [Garrett] that they can be right there in the thick of it this year. . . . And they have the quarterback that can do it.
“He is a fierce competitor. He works out. He’s with his team during the season. He’s one heckuva football player. I think he has been a leader. Leaders — you mature as you get experience yourself at that position. But the players like him. And look what he’s done. He’s accomplished a lot.”
Do you believe that Staubach’s comments were on point and that we do, in fact, have a quarterback in Romo that is capable of winning it all? I have had my doubts, but I would like to believe Romo can win it all. Afterall, if guys like Jeff Hostetler and Trent Dilfer can win a Super Bowl, anyone can.
