I have watched Romo from the second he took the field in the the 3rd quarter at Texas Stadium against the NY Giants in 2006, and I have seen a remarkable playmaker ever since. I have also seen somebody that may be influenced a bit.
Our quarterback Tony Romo is no longer our quarterback Tony Romo, he is a shell of what he once was. Yes, he will make mistakes but at the same time he will win more football games than he will lose for us.
To all of you who do not know, Romo is 29-14 as a starter and has a QB rating in the 90′s. I am no expert but I think that is pretty good. Let our playmaker be a playmaker. Romo is not a game manager and this is the result we get when we turn him into a game manager. That’s like telling Mike Vick do not run, or McNabb do not scamble, or better yet telling Peyton Manning he needs to scramble more. It’s just not his game and probably never will be. Being a game manager is not what Romo is, not what he is built for. He is built to take chances. With a short term memory he already has won more than he has lost and at the end of the day that is what we want, right?
Our Dallas Cowboys will have a much much better chance at winning games that matter most when we have that gunslinger under center or in the shotgun. I say we rally around our guy and support him because the more we doubt him, the more cautious he becomes. And the more cautious he is, the more we lose heartbreakers like the one last week in Denver.
We have a smashmouth physical running game. If we can get the passing attack going, we will be extremely dangerous in December and January.
We all saw the play last Sunday. All afternoon we witnessed Romo, the pocket QB, getting hit almost every time he dropped back. Then, with the game on the line 4th and 3, he turned into Super Romo and used he God given talent and made a play that kept the game alive. That is the Tony Romo we need.
John Kitna is not the answer, and Stephen McGee definitely is not the answer at QB for us. Everyone did the same thing last year, complained about Romo and called for Brad Johnson. Then Romo got hurt and Brad came in and we got destroyed in St. Louis. After that, in the middle of the Giants game in New York you all called for Brooks Bollinger. Look at how all those executive decisions turned out.
Be grateful we have a young undrafted free agent at QB. Sure he will make mistakes. Duh! That’s why he was never drafted. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. I am sure the Rams or Browns, or Bills, would love our dissapointment of a QB.
So, come on guys sit back and enjoy being a Cowboys fan. You should feel honored to represent the STAR. GO COWBOYS!
