The Dallas Cowboys Never Ending Tony Romo Debate

Well, what about the ultimate man in Dallas. I am talking of course about Captain America. Mr. Clutch himself, Roger Staubach, Captain Comeback. Just this week Roger chimed in on Tony Romo, and he had this to say. Link “I think Tony Romo is a championship QB. He can take a team to the Championship.” So why hasn’t he Roger? He answers that. “He can’t do it by himself, but I really believe he can do it. I just see what he does on the field, the plays he makes, the throws he makes, the sense he has to move in the pocket so I’m pulling really hard for Tony because I really believe he is one heck of a QB, and that’s a feeling from somebody that I didn’t say that about any other quarterbacks except for Troy Aikman. I think Tony is the right QB, and we’re lucky to have Tony Romo.”

I recently heard a fool comment on Roger’s praise of Romo by saying Roger also praised Quincy Carter. The evidence he provided was Roger saying this. “I see good things in Quincy Carter so I am kinda pulling for him.” That is the depths of silliness as it pertains to Tony Romo amongst some Cowboys fans. “Kinda pulling for him” somehow is equal to “I think Tony Romo is a Championship QB.”

Uh no. They aren’t even close. Let me illustrate. I like Kyle Orton. I am pulling for Kyle Orton. I wanted the Cowboys to acquire him when the Denver Broncos released him, and was actually bummed out when the Kansas City Chiefs were awarded his services. That does not mean I think he is a championship QB.

Do championship caliber QBs not win championships? The answer is yes. Dan Marino was a championship QB. Warren Moon was a championship QB. Dan Fouts was a championship QB. Jim Kelly was a championship QB. Fran Tarkenton was a championship QB. I’ll even go so far as to say Archie Manning was a championship QB. Archie is the only one of the above group who is not in the Hall of Fame. Ask anyone who played in his era how good he was. He just happened to play for a horrible team. Put Archie Manning on the Houston Oilers of that era and Terry Bradshaw might only have 2 Super Bowl Rings. Archie was that good.
