But Romo, of course, is missing the obvious stat line. He owns no rings to his name. He has little postseason experience (six games) compared to the other greats.
Fair or not, Staubach and Aikman combined for five Super Bowls during their time in Big D. Roger the Dodger was part of 20 playoff games, staring 17 of them. He eluded defenders for years, something Romo did well himself, rushing for 2,264 yards and 20 touchdowns during his career.
Aikman played in 16 postseason games, starting 15 of them. He posted an 88.3 quarterback rating in those games, completing 63.7 percent of his passes.
Danny White started in 10 postseason games for the Cowboys, going 5-5 in that stretch. He couldn’t get the Cowboys into the big show and, like Romo, will carry that slogan forever.
With Super Bowl made teams lining up to snatch Romo, be it free agency or the Dallas Cowboys themselves, the Cowboys quarterback will get to change his narrative. DeMarcus Ware did the same with the Denver Broncos.
Romo’s chapter with the Cowboys is coming to a close, while Dak Prescott‘s future is just beginning. Romo can’t write any more stories for the Dallas Cowboys, but a least he can author a new chapter someplace else.
