The internet is abuzz over Tony Romo again. Last Sunday, Romo celebrated his 100th start in professional football with a win against the Philidelphia Eagles and a new NFL record. With 27,485 passing yards, the Cowboys Quarterback holds the NFL record for the most passing yards in 100 starts.
Dallas fans know Tony Romo as a pass-happy Quarterback. Fans have witnessed Tony connect with Jason Witten running the slant routemany a time for the past 7 seasons. The over the middle pass is a strategy that is at the core of the Dallas playbook. At times, yes, Tony Romo can be guilty of passing too much, as he is a quarterback who is notorious for the high number of interceptions that he throws. Nevertheless, sportstalkforida.com’s Matt Stein mentions this fantastic statistic:
“When you look back at Romo’s 100 starts it gives you pause when you notice he’s thrown more passes than Joe Namath (27,747 to 27,663), has 189 career touchdowns and completed more passes through 100 games than Dan Marino, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner.”

Although Tony Romo is inarguably good enough to be a Quarterback in the NFL, records like this will be meaningless to his legacy without a Superbowl ring to go with it. Tony needs to keep his head up, keep his wits about him, and demonstrate superior ball control. When he’s not his own worst enemy, the QB has one of the strongest arms in the league. If Tony can channel the momentum and positive energy that the Cowboys have acquired from taking control of the NFC East and win against Detroit, then it’s time for us as football fans to sit back and re-evaluate what we all thought we knew about this Quarterback .
