The Giants have been a better team than the Cowboys over the past several years. It’s that simple. New York has won two Super Bowls in the past four years. Dallas has only won one playoff game during that span. There are a number of reasons why the G-Men have had more success than the Cowboys in recent history, but Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty believes Tony Romo is the primary reason.

“Romo’s a tremendous quarterback, statistically he’s a top five quarterback, that’s undeniable,” Canty said Tuesday on ESPN’s SportsNation according to the Dallas Morning News. “At the end of the day, in the clutch situations, he hasn’t performed as well as you would like him to. I think ultimately, that’s been the difference between their franchise and the Giants ability to be successful.

“Obviously, when you put pressure on any quarterback you can cause mistakes. I think Romo has been prone to make mistakes in the clutch situations and his team has not been able to be successful because of it.”

Based on some of his recent comments, Brett Favre would probably disagree with Canty’s assessment and argue that the Cowboys failures have not been all Romo’s fault. While Romo has made some poor decisions in crucial situations, we’re talking about the span of several seasons and several meetings between the NFC East division rivals. Romo hasn’t done enough to help the Cowboys be successful, but they have made plenty of bonehead mistakes as a team and found ways to lose. Sometimes one team is just plain better than another.
