Originally written October 02, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
Former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann went after both Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and owner Jerry Jones today by blasting them on the radio. “Soon or later we have to come to the realization that Tony isn’t a very good quarterback,” Theismann told Brady & Lang on Sportsnet 590 The Fan Tuesday, via the Dallas Morning News. “He throws interceptions that (make) you shake your head. If it’s all the wide receivers’ fault then maybe he should get some new wide receivers, or they need to come up with some new route combinations that guys can understand.” After watching Romo last night, Theismann says he realizes that he’s not very good. “What hit me last night is, Tony isn’t really that good,” Theismann said. “Just because he wears a star on his helmet — we all think that people who are Dallas Cowboys, ‘ooh they’re wonderful and ooh they’re terrific, ooh they’re the next Roger Staubach’ or whatever the heck they want to say. They’re full of bologna. “Tony makes bad decisions with the football. And I’ll tell you something else; he missed two wide open touchdowns last night that nobody’s talking about. Forget about the five interceptions; he misses Miles Austin and Dez Bryant with easy touchdown throws, and he airmails the ball over their heads. “You can say, ‘well, everybody has a bad game.’ Tony has too many bad games. Tony Romo is not a very good quarterback. Somebody has to say it so I just did. He should be a lot better, or the reputation he’s carried should have him play a lot better.” Theismann didn’t stop at ripping Romo, he also went after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. “It took him five years too long to change the offensive line, which isn’t very good. It took him three years too long to change his secondary. He’ll do the same thing again. This is what happens when you’re not a football guy. “You have to ask yourself, ‘is the owner holding back this football team with football decisions?’ And I think yes. “I think you have a couple issues in Dallas. Number one, I think you have a team, they think they’re pretty good. They’re not. Number two, their quarterback thinks he’s pretty good. He’s really not. Number three, their owner is their general manager and he doesn’t make good decisions from a personnel standpoint.” Theismann says Romo doesn’t get when it comes to being a quarterback. “Tony Romo continues to do things to hurt his football team,” Theismann said. “He doesn’t understand how to play the quarterback position. Somebody had to say it, and I just said it. Tony, you have to start proving to everyone you understand football. You’re doing things that Pop Warner kids would get benched for.” I do believe that Romo is a talented quarterback that puts up nice numbers, but is prone to making dumb mistakes that costs his team games. So I do agree with Theismann to a degree. But at the end of the day, I think Theismann needs to worry more about his former team than the Cowboys. Both teams do have a 2-2 record, so it’s not like the Skins are tearing apart the NFL right now.
