Tony Romo is easily one of the most inconsistent quarterbacks in football. There are times when he looks like a Hall of Famer and others when he doesn’t appear to be in the top 25 at his position. Following his most recent stinker, a five-interception loss to the Bears on Monday night, former NFL quarterback Joe Theismann said we all just need to accept that Romo isn’t good.


“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, according to 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.


“What hit me last night is, Tony isn’t really that good. 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.”


Theismann alluded to the fact that Romo has had a lot bad games. He also pointed out that he overthrew Miles Austin and Dez Bryant on what should have been easy touchdowns against Chicago.


“You can say, ‘well, everybody has a bad game.’ Tony has too many bad games,” Theismann continued. “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.”


This is the same Theismann who said Peyton Manning will never play football again, so it’s up to you to decide if his opinion is valuable or not. From a skill standpoint, Troy Aikman said he believes Romo is better than him and will eventually win a Super Bowl. As one Giants defensive lineman pointed out, that will depend on Tony’s ability to make plays in the clutch — something he has rarely done throughout his career.
