The Dallas Cowboys' star quarterback, Tony Romo, is getting a lot of accolades this season as an early MVP candidate for his accuracy, touchdowns and lack of interceptions.
Right now he has 13 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions in five games.
But at the age of 33 years old and 11 years in the league the question to ask is can he change?
There is no simple answer to give because this is a quarterback with a lengthy history of being really good in becoming a choke artist. You just don’t find too many players like that.
Don’t get me wrong, Romo gives the Dallas Cowboys the best chance to win but owner Jerry Jones needs to realize having him as his quarterback won’t win a Super Bowl. There are so many reasons why, but to give you some, are that Tony Romo is great in the first three in a half quarters and then in the final minutes of the game he chokes.
We’ve witnessed so many Romo interceptions or bad throws at the end of the game to win it, and we’re like, what did he just do? That will most likely be the legacy of Romo, fair or unfair.
Even though the Dallas Cowboys are 2-3 in a disastrous NFC East many experts are predicting that they will win their conference. Today Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys are more about moral victories than wins. Jerry Jones was so happy that Romo outplayed Peyton Manning in a shootout loss to the Denver Broncos 51-48 Sunday that it trickled down to the players.
Romo’s career has been pretty solid with some gaudy numbers put up but with only one playoff appearance as a Cowboy it’s just not going to cut it. Fans of Romo say that he’s elite, and on paper he is, but we as fans need to see more, and as he ages and more prone to injuries, can we really see that?
Playing for the Dallas Cowboys isn’t the easiest thing to do because the lights are very bright and most will fold under that kind of pressure and Romo isn’t immune from it.
