Why The Stars are Aligned for Romo to Win a Superbowl: Part 1.

This entire offseason we’ve heard all sorts of opinions on whether or not Tony Romo can win the big one. From Martellus Bennett, Chris Canty, Amani Toomer, and countless ESPN and NFL Network analysts the topic has become a staple in Dallas Cowboys news across the web. He’s a top five quaterback, when you look at the statistics he is better than Eli, Romo isn’t clutch, and a guy with a 1-3 playoff record shouldn’t be considered elite are all common things we as Cowboys’ fans have to digest when listening to radio shows on our morning commutes or from t that one "fair-weather fan" you just happen to know. However, these are my thoughts on why I believe Tony Romo will lead us into the promised land this season.


(‘The Year Before...’)

Tony Romo: 0-1 in playoffs (I’m counting the last game against the Giants as a playoff game.)
346/522 4,184 yds. 66.3% 8.02 avg. 31 td. 10 int. 102.5 rtg.

Peyton Manning: 0-1 in playoffs
305/453 3,747 yds. 67.3% 8.3 avg. 28 td. 10 int. 104.1 rtg.

John Elway: 0-1 in playoffs
287/466 3,328 yds. 61.6% 7.1 avg. 24 tds. 14 ints. 89.2 rtg.

Drew Brees: 8-8 record, did not make playoffs
413/635 5,069 yds. 65% 12.3 avg. 34 tds. 17 ints. 96.2 rtg.

Eli Manning: 8-8 record, 0-1 in playoffs
301/522 3,244 yds. 57.7% 6.2 avg. 24 tds. 18 ints. 77 rtg.

Aaron Rodgers 0-1 in playoffs
350/541 4,434 yds. 64.7% 8.2 avg. 30 tds. 7 ints. 103.2 rtg.

See a resemblance here?

In part two I will analyze the statistics of the quarterbacks in their first superbowl season and other elements added/subtracted around the team.
