The Dallas Cowboys Never Ending Tony Romo Debate

Link “Anybody that says Tony Romo is not a good enough QB to take a team to the Super Bowl is either not very smart, or they don’t know football, or they haven’t done their homework. Because I don’t think anybody in the league makes something out of nothing as well as he does.” That was Danny White, the man who probably knows more about what Tony Romo is going through than any man alive.

Danny also said this, Link “I’ll guarantee you there are QBs in this league in the past that have won Super Bowls without performing nearly at the level that Tony Romo has performed at. So it’s a matter of everybody else playing their position the way Tony plays his, and that team will be in the Super Bowl every year. And I think he knows that.” Danny doesn’t mince words does he?

What about the legendary QB that Tony replaced in Dallas, Troy Aikman? Link “I’m a big fan of his and I’ve said it all along. He’s a special player. Unfortunately, not enough people recognize that.” So Troy, what is Tony’s problem then? Why can’t he get them to the next level? He answers that. Link “They have to shore up the Offensive Line. You can’t have a QB hit as much as Tony is.”

Seems to echo Danny a little on that. Romo is almost always under pressure, and he makes amazing plays out of nothing. No one should deny that. How that is not evidence of his talent I just don’t know.

    The Boys could go 15-1 this season breeze through the playoffs and Super Bowl, Romo could throw 50 TDs to only 8 Ints, make no mistakes in the post season and somehow critics would say it is just a fluke…

    It has been obvious for a long time that a poor offensive line has been the major reason why Tony has not been able to lead the Cowboys to a superbowl. Fans who criticize Romo apparently don’t know enough about football to recognize this. It would also help if the receivers would would always run their designated routes. This would probably have cut his interceptions in half. I heard from somewhere that football is a team game.

    when cowboys had an above average offensive line in 2007, cowboys put a record of 13-3 and romo was the qb, and the running game was good, romo was elite in 2007 ? and he is not elite now with this offensive line and putting this numbers, just think haters


    Cowboys had as many as 3 PBs OL on Romo’s initial teams competitive thru the first 5 years of his career. Hes had HoF receivers, hes had top 5 Ds. Hes had HoF coaches and at one time played on a team with 13 PBers. Lets not re write history to cover for the pink elephant in the room. Hes let us down at many of the biggest moments. The only thing the “haters” as if for evidence. GO OUT AND DO IT! No one cares about stats. If he won in the post season I can assure the “haters” wouldnt care about the only thing you have in this argument, empty stats. I dont care about come backs, I dont care about Dec. games. I care about 3 picks vs Washington. I care about the pick 6 to end our play off hopes vs Pitts in 2010. I care about his collapses vs Philly that game the team no chance to compete.

    I KNOW hes very good and can put up stats. So hes obviously very talented. But you need to deal with reality. NOTHING external is the reason Romo has a tendency to fall apart when the pressure is at its highest. You cannot play for a SB when you arent in the play offs. You can whine about the talent all you want, but #1, its untrue. We are no less talented than plenty of teams that made the play offs. 2 of his receivers made the NFLs top 100. Not too shabby. #2) We wre good enough to play for the division and the play offs on the seasons last game. You cant ask for any better chance than that. Its the same shot RG3 had and he succeeded. Does he have a Dez or a Witten? His team sucked the year before. Romo had a chance and choked. How about holding him responsible for his own play and letting his team down when they needed him most? You lose 9.9 out of every 10 games when the QB throws 3 picks. We had no shot. And its no one elses fault.

      I’m sorry, but Romo has 19 Game winning drives…. And is 3rd right now in 4th quarter comebacks since 2006. Sounds like he doesn’t fall under pressure more than the media assumes.
      Also “You lose 9.9 out of every 10 games when the QB throws 3 picks. We had no shot. And its no one elses fault.”. Pretty sure Romo beat the Bills with 5 interceptions.. Just saying.. He also lost to the Rams with 4td and 0 int. So like you said before, STATS DON”T MATTER. This is a team game when all said and done.

        I meant the Saints, 4td 0int. .. 12/23/12

      There are so many false stats in your post that people shouldn’t even respond to this drivel.
