Cowboys' QB Tony Romo owns the second-highest career passer rating in NFL history and has thrown for 4, 000 yards three times in his career. But instead of being praised as one of the game's best, he's garnered intense scrutiny based on his poor record in big games.
Love him or hate him, Dallas Cowboys' Tony Romo has a long record of success. His statistics compare well to all of the elite QBs in the league. Except in one area: championships. He has none. In his seven years as Cowboys' QB Romo has played in only four postseason games, losing three of them.
That aside, Brett Favre told Dan Hanzus of NFL.com that of all the current QBs in the NFL, Romo is the most like him.
"Romo is probably more like me than any of those guys," he said. "I don't know if that's good, because I think way too much is cast upon him. Good or bad.This week, in an ESPN interview, current Giant and former Dallas Cowboy Chris Canty said he believes Romo is a good player who just isn't as clutch as he could be.
"It's Dallas. And much is expected. But he's carried those guys, man. I mean, I'm watching last year, and I like Tony. And I like the way he plays. I think at times he's underrated."
“Romo’s a tremendous quarterback, statistically he’s a top five quarterback, that’s undeniable. At the end of the day, in the clutch situations, he hasn’t performed as well as you would like him to. I think ultimately, that’s been the difference between their franchise and the Giants ability to be successful.”
