Tony Romo is one of the most controversial players in recent NFL history.
If you listen to the talking heads on the NFL Network, they will say things like Tony Romo isn’t a leader, Tony Romo can’t win big games,Â Romo can’t play in the clutch, Romo only has one playoff win etc.
The first question that comes to my mind, is how much time have they spent with Tony Romo: either on the field or in the locker room? The answer to that is none.
Dallas Cowboys overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints
In this video, despite a 31 to 14 deficit, fumbles, penalties, constant pressure up the middle and dropped passes, Tony Romo rallied the troops and brought the Cowboys back with 17 unanswered points. On 4th and 10, Tony Romo connected with Miles Austin in the corner of the endzone to tie the game at 31-31 with 15 seconds on the clock. In typical Cowboys fashion, the defense couldn’t stop the Saints and they lost, 34-31 on a 20 yard chip shot field goal. Whether you like it or or want to admit it, this is the story ofÂ Romo’s life. No one ever talks about all of the games that he performed like a first ballot hall of famer, but let him make one mistake and it’s national news.
