Just for the record, I am really going against my beliefs on this topic. I feel what happened in the past happened the way it did because the players played together as a team and made it happen. For example, I don’t feel you can replace Joe Montana with Dan Marino and achieve the same results. I just don’t believe in that argument. It is what it is. I like debating facts and not hypothetical circumstances. It just seems like nobody can say for sure because it didn’t happen!
Now that being said, off to trying to dabble in the factual hypothetical world while trying to achieve valid points…
Tony Romo is no doubt an outstanding qb. The longer he plays, the more I look at his body of work and shake my head at the numbers he is putting up. Like the stat that popped up during last weeks game against the Giants. Tony Romo is the highest rated 4th quarter qb in the history of the NFL. It’s baffling. All that is talked about are the plays like the interception in week 17 last year against the Redskins, or the bobbled snap in Seattle. Then you find out that since 2011, Tony Romo leads the league in game winning drives with 11. Not too shabby for a guy labeled “choke artist”.
Those who love Tony Romo would agree, and probably to some extent those who hate him, know he would have more success if he had a better cast around him. I have said it several times. Tony cant do it alone. He needs a defense that can get crucial stops and a running game he can lean on. Heck, doesn’t every QB need that?
That being said, of coarse he wins a ring if you put him on the 90’s cowboys! I don’t know if he wins 3 out of 4 like Troy Aikman, but I definitely say he wins in 93 when Emmitt won league MVP. Now this is why I don’t like dealing in this hypothetical realm. Aikman was the perfect QB for that team. He was a perfectionist. He was “one” with Micheal Irvin. He just fit. They were a machine. They just clicked together. They were the triplets. Put Tony on that team and obviously the chemistry is altered. But give Tony that defense and that running game and he would do some serious damage in January. I have no doubt about that. So on that note, get to work Jerry! You have a QB here that you are wasting. Get this guy some real help so he can finally get his ring.
