Keepin' the Faith

NAME THIS QB:

  • Led the NFL in touchdown passes over the past 2 seasons with 62.
  • Led the NFL in 4th quarter passing efficiency in 2008.
  • 2nd in NFL history with a 300 yard passing game every 2.44 starts.
  • 27-12 career record as a starter (.692 winning percentage).

Yep, you guessed it. Your Dallas Cowboys’ own Tony Romo. Your prize for the correct answer?? A n
ewwwwwwww car!! Well, not really, but it seems as if there should be some type of award given for anyone to have optimism or solid faith in Tony. I know that is probably unfair, because there are many, many fans who still are in Romo’s corner, unwavering in their faith to #9. I am one of those fans.

I guess the only point of this short piece is not to start a war of words or to crucify those with their own opinions, but to try and poke a few holes in the Romo is a celebrity quarterback who can’t play and is not a competitor or a leader conspiracy that seems to abound these days. It’s easy to jump on the pile right now, especially with our last memories being from that terrible TEAM effort in Philly (I shudder just to think of it).

The bottom line: there are teams in the NFL trotting out such spares as Kyle Orton, JaMarcus Russell, Tarvaris Jackson and J.T. O’ Sullivan, etc. We should be thanking the NFL gods everyday for blessing us with a talent like Romo. Do I need to even go through the tried and  true list of Cowboys QB’s after Aikman and before Romo? I didn’t think so.

Okay, he is 0-2 in the playoffs and has struggled at times in December. There, I admitted that he is not perfect and has room to improve. Sounds alot like me in my job, and my life for that matter. 

Let’s all just take a deep breath, try and forget the past (because we certainly can’t change it) and take time to be thankful that we have a winning team, a competitve team led by one of the top 5 starting QB’s in the league. We need to make some changes, Romo included, but this team is not far away…….

Trust me.

    Romo has got this, its just been outside influences aka media, blowing this wayy to large, lets just get your teams composure back, and be a TEAM cant wait til preseason/season gosh darn. Cowboys got it this year, F Steelers and there rings, we will take back whats ours!

  5. Cowboy Bill

    Optimism is a good thing no doubt about it. The bottom line is though…he’s all we got. Maybe he’s all we need. He shows flashes of brilliance and has made some amazing plays in the past. His play in 2008 was bad..I mean, come on, let’s be honest here. But you’re right, we have to look ahead. He cuts down on his turnovers and everything else will take care of itself. We still need to get a quality backup as well.

    Yes I believe in tony when my friends and family talk crap about my QB they know to expect me to talk crap BACK and the said thing about it is that they are DAllas FANS its bad enought arguing with other members cause there dolphins or rams or viking fans but our own fans thats the worse ……BUT I DO IT CAUSE I BELIEVE IN ROMO

  8. MISSI

    I still have faith in Tony……he just needs to dump Jessica and get on with the idea of playing good football. If he gets rid of her and can concentrate on the game-maybe we will get somewhere. I will be a fan till the day I die…..30 years this year and going strong!!!! 2009 is our year!!!!!!!!!!!
