For those of you that thought maybe former Giants WR Amani Toomer would backtrack on his assessment that Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is better than Eli Manning, you’re dead wrong. He stands by what he said, no matter how wrong he is.

Toomer was on ESPN New York’s Michael Kay Show Friday and said, “I love Eli, and I respect the hell out of him as a person,” “But I have to do my job, and I have to look at him beyond what the perception is because the perception doesn’t always go hand in hand with the reality.”

He says the main reason he went with Romo as the better QB was after he looked at their numbers.
