Tony Romo has received a lot of criticism through his career thus far, both justified and not, but you’d have to be a crazy person to think Romo was what was wrong with the Dallas Cowboys in 2011. At least that’s what former Cowboys’ quarterback Danny White believes, and really, we’d agree with him here.
We’re far from Romo apologists--we did watch that Lions game, after all--but Romo’s numbers on the year were undeniably stellar: He completed 66.3 percent of his passes for 4,184 yards, 31 touchdowns and just ten interceptions. And he did all of this behind a young, hodgepodge of an offensive line.
Considering this, White’s response to a question of about whether he’d spoken to Romo about the inherited pressure of being the Dallas Cowboys quarterback--asked in a recent interview on 105.3 The Fan--was pretty much on the money, though just a little on the hyperbolic side toward the end.
“I haven’t really talked to Tony about that because he doesn’t need me to tell him that,” White said
