With Dak Prescott on the rise, quarterback Tony Romo is leaving the Dallas Cowboys. Where does this Cowboy rank among the great quarterbacks in Big D?
Divorces aren’t fun. The Dallas Cowboys didn’t see their golden boy, quarterback Troy Aikman, run into the arms of another city.
Aikman wore only one jersey during his 12-year career in the NFL. The three-time Super Bowl winner started and ended his time with the Dallas Cowboys.
The case won’t be the same for Tony Romo.
Romo is expected to be either traded or released (most likely the latter). There will be no press conferences with Romo next to his owner and general manager, Jerry Jones. There will be no sobs or tears. No cameras.
Nobody will be choking back tears, reaching for an extra tissue or two. Romo won’t be thanking the Dallas Cowboys, the staff, nor will he extend his hand over a Cowboys helmet over some good tears.
This isn’t the time — not yet anyways.
If we’re being honest, Romo is in more of “revenge” mode than he is retire mode. There will be a day for those Dallas Cowboys tears, but that time is not now. Each day draws closer us closer to the end of Romo days — where he goes and what uniform he’ll wear next will be revealed.
But until then, let’s look at where Mr. Antonio Ramiro Romo ranks among the other Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks. If you were to rank the five best, where would Romo stand? Statically speaking, Romo was one of the best to ever suit up in the NFL.
