Is Tony Romo better than Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III? Right about now my twitter feed is blowing up with anti Romo venom and how much I’ve had to drink jokes.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinks Romo is better than both. According to the Star-Telegram Jones stated that “Tony is going to play a lot more than two more years”.
Anyone that knows me will tell you I am a die-hard Romo fan. I love his game, improvisation whether good or bad and the courage that he has shown under fire. 2,592 pass attempts, 1672 completions, 64.5 completion percentage, 2 to 1 td to int ratio, 20,834 career passing yards, and a career 96.9 QB rating. Those are Tony Romo career passing numbers. Present those numbers from a QB with a different name and you will probably hear a round of applause. Not for this guy. Romo has had terrible Decembers posting a 9-14 record. We can’t leave out the fumbled snap against Seattle in the 2006 playoffs. That started the intense Romo is not clutch crusade that is roaring at this day and time. Tony has a terrible habit of making his supporters look bad with one of those ridiculous interceptions seen during playoff losses to the Eagles and Vikings in consecutive seasons.
Romo has two years left on his current deal which pays 825,000 in 2012 and 11,500,000 in 2013. With an eleven million dollar gap in base salary over the next two seasons, Romo must perform and make a serious playoff push or next Feb we could be talking about whether or not the Cowboys will trade up to select Matt Barkley or Landry Jones.
