2) Mobile? Or Static Like Troy Aikman in the pocket?
Houdini. Elusive. Escape artist.
That’s Tony Romo’s dictionary.
Tony Romo turns 34 on April 21st, 2014. The age alone is enough to prevent quarterbacks from being mobile. For Tony Romo, the reality is he is getting older and recovering from a total of two back surgeries (the last one was major).
Can Tony Romo keep up this part of his game? Time will tell.
Over the years, the Cowboys have relied on Tony’s ability to make plays out of dead moments. As the team looks towards defense for the 2014 NFL Draft, it’ll be interesting if the Cowboys make it a priority to protect their “quarterback investment” by beefing up the front line.
Because as Tony Romo ages, his ability to be mobile and absorb hits will decline.
3) 16 Games or less?
It’s hard to imagine Kyle Orton or Brandon Weeden owning a 105.6 average quarterback rating in the 4th quarter, much less a 96.7 overall rating for the season.
The Cowboys need Tony Romo. They are Tony Romo. Where Tony Romo goes, Dallas goes.
Just because the team lost Ware, Hatcher, and Austin, doesn’t mean the theme changes. It can’t. This is Tony Romo’s team. Period.
So how much does #9 have left in the tank?
