Antonio Ramiro Romo will fail in 2014. There is no other narrative in store for the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback. None.
The 2014 architectural design is to fix the hemorrhaging defense with a heavy dose of Tony Romo and company. The fact is less quality quarterbacks have accomplished more than Tony Romo with a proven defense and general managers who are eligible for pink slips.
If Tony Romo is the person the fault falls down to, he is however, the best person to remedy a bad bug with good medicine. Romo will always, to infinity and beyond, be the best chance the Cowboys of this era have of winning.
Consider the hype: In situational positions, Tony Romo was in non-choker mode when his team was down during the 2013 season. Not only has the underrated quarterback flourished when his team was behind, but he also dictated personal success in circumstances critics trashed and tarnished his reputation.
Tony Romo’s 2013 Situational Stats When Winning and Losing:
Winning by 1-8 Points — TD 10 | Int 5 | Avg 6.5 | Pct 65.4 | Rat 90.5
Winning by 9-16 Points — TD 1 | Int 1 | Avg 6.2 | Pct 60.4 | Rat 76.5
Losing by 1-8 Points — TD 10 | Int 2 | Avg 7.4 | Pct 64.4 | Rat 107.8
Losing by 9-16 Points — TD 2 | Int 0 | Avg 9.9 | Pct 72.5 | Rat 120.4
The image of a bad defense won’t fall where it should; the lyrics are skewed by what Tony Romo can and cannot carry out with his right arm. The only forward is Tony Romo. So it’s amazing the types of fault slashed at one quarterback, and the amount of expectations that nets down to one single person.
As the soft white light from cameras flash on Tony Romo when he heads down the tunnel to face the San Francisco 49ers at AT&T Stadium, you have to wonder what Tony Romo sees as the pixels formulate into photographs.
People are deaf and immune to the types of roles Mr. Romo wears. Often, without any gratitude or acknowledgement, secretly we see Tony Romo wearing more than just the No. 9 jersey; he’s the quarterback who is suppose to wear the digits of a linebacker, cornerback, defensive lineman, safety, running back, and on and on.
While at it, shouldn’t Tony Romo manage the faults of Jerry Jones? Perhaps he should own the jersey numbers of the referees who fair or not, seem to tune up the yellow flag throwing when the Cowboys are featured on stage.
When Tony Romo walks down the tunnel on September 7th, 2014, he embodies on his jersey only a single digit. Manage your expectations to that.
Don’t cry yourself to sleep if the pictures you print show only Tony Romo. I assure you, nothing is wrong with your camera.
