This was the most impressive game Romo has played, to date.
Sounds absurd, right? Stay with me for a minute while I explain.
Romo was putrid, horrible, pathetic, terrible, and any other adjective you want to use, for 57 minutes. He made Rex Grossman look like a viable option. He made some wonder what Ryan Leaf is up to these days and if Jerry still has Quincy Carters number on speed dial. He was that bad.
With all of the adversity, with all of the mistakes, most young QBs would have simply given up, or pressed too much leading to more mistakes.
Not Carrie Underwoods boyfriend. The pressure never got to him. No anxiety. Not a hint that he'd lost confidence in himself. Nope, all superromo did was calmly lead his team down the field to score a TD with 20 seconds left and a chance to tie the game. Then, made two perfect throws toward the sideline to allow some dude name Nick to become an instant Folk hero in Dallas.
To me this was far more impressive than 4 and 5 TD passes in blowout games. This game showed his resilience, his heart, his guts in the face of tremendous adversity. Something that had been questioned before this game. That question has been answered resoundingly positive.
If anyone wondered whether Romo is a championship caliber QB before this season, it wasn't the 119 quarterback rating in the first 4 games that proves he is. It was the absolute stinker he pulled out on Monday night.
