Tony Romo. Well likable QB that most everyone has come to enjoy watching when he is playing well. He can be electrifying. I read that Coach Parcells used to tell Romo if he can learn to manage the game and tame his gunslinger ways he could be a very good QB. Romo is cut from the Brett Farve mold. Under pressure, they both make more mistakes than they should. One difference, Farve would make a big play, then put up an INT. Farve can win close games after a few INT's. Romo plays terrible for most of the entire game. Romo is not going to change. He is not going to get better with his decision making. This kind of thing can't be taught. It just is his mentality. Look at Shaun Hill of the 49ers. This guy doesn't look great, isn't fun to watch but he is a winner. He is 9-3 and has around a 90 QB rating. Do the fans want the wins or the excitement?
There needs to be a change at the QB. After this year. Give Romo this year to either #$%! or get off the pot. If he fails, Dallas needs to give the other 51 players a shot with a new QB. He might not be as flashy, but if a QB can make the throws when needed, manage the game without turning the ball over, that team has a good chance to win. Especially if that team has a good running game and a solid defense. (well, at least Dallas has one out of two after week 2).
Romo can tell himself and everyone else that he will get better but when that split second comes and he throws the pass and it floats right to the CB or Safety, you have to wonder, will this guy ever change? I'll be saying this again, I'm sure of it. He may win some exciting games this year but when it comes down to getting into the playoffs or the actual playoff games, he chokes. He is an INT king.
