Romo Proves His Mediocrity

After today’s dismal appearance, Tony Romo once again proves that he cannot be handed the keys to “America’s Team” yet his cards continue to command top dollar. He has played 6 seasons now and has a decent .691 win percentage but he is also 1-3 in the Playoffs. He can win during the season but has trouble pulling through when it is most important. He is also turnover prone, yes people will point out that he threw 26 TD and only 9 INTS this season, his lowest interception rate yet but what about his 6 fumbles during the season? Or even worse, today’s performance where he went 22/35 for 198 yards with 0 TDs, 1 INT and 3 Fumbles (2 lost). He has 107 total TDs, 55 INTs and 38 Fumbles (16 lost). Those are not great ratios and then add in that he has 99 sacks, he gets sacked 0.9 times for each TD he throws.

I am not saying that he is the worst QB out there, by no means at all. I am just saying that he is merely a “decent’ QB and not worth the acclaims and boasting that people shower on him. This is the second post I made this year regarding Romo yet when the Cowboys beat an un-beaten Saints team in New Orleans he was suddenly promoted to top dog in the NFC. Please, he is a decent QB on an overrated team that will probably sac its coach shortly. JJ does not take to mediocrity to well, his stadium is superior, his scoreboard is superior and you can damn well be sure he will soon be looking for a superior coach to replace Phillips.
