Maybe you need to be a former Cowboys quarterback to find the love for current Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
Troy Aikman said that Romo is a better quarterback than he was during his career, which ended with three Super Bowl rings and a spot in the Hall of Fame. Now another Super Bowl-winning former Cowboys quarterback who has a bust in Canton has outed himself as a rider on the Romo bandwagon as well. During an interview with Norm Hitzges on KTCK, via the Dallas Morning News, Roger Staubach wondered why the rest of the world hasn’t joined him and Aikman.
“One of the most important things a quarterback can do is transfer the confidence he has to his teammates so everybody can believe in each other. You can’t do it by yourself,” Staubach said. “It’s really a mystery to me why people don’t understand how really good (Romo) is. The things he can do and the plays he can make, I’m sure Troy would say the same. I think this team is building to support a great quarterback like Romo. If your defense is doing a great job, you can do a lot of things on offense.”
Craig Morton, Danny White, Gary Hogeboom and Quincy Carter, we await your thoughts on this matter.
Aikman and Staubach both got a lot of credit for the success their teams enjoyed, but both men surely know that they wouldn’t have won any Super Bowls without a great team around them. Could Romo have won a title with one of those teams? You could kill a few idle hours wondering about the answer to that question, but the only thing we know for sure is that Romo hasn’t been able to win a Super Bowl with the teams he’s actually been on throughout his career.
Unless he does, there’s not much chance the majority opinion of Romo will be the same as the one held by his predecessors at quarterback in Dallas.
