Who Has Better Tools: Tony Romo or Michael Vick?

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images One of the greatest things about sports is the amount of argument and debate it causes.  As a fan and writer of an NFC East team there is no shortage of passionate opinion among fanbases of the teams.

Tony Romo May Have Better Stats Than Eli Manning, But He's Not a Better Quarterback

Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning: breaking down the ‘clutch’ argument

I was listening to the fallout of the discussion live on SiriusXM NFL Radio and didn’t think much of Amani Toomer’s comments in support of Tony Romo. I understand that Eli has the rings, etc. but Toomer was just articulating that he likes the statline of a guy like Tony Romo more than he does [...]
