In Defense Of Tony Romo

More

People need to lay off the kid. He's a very good quarterback:

...since 2006, only 6 quarterbacks AVERAGE a +10 TD/INT in each of the years. Exactly 3 QB's in the entire NFL have thrown 80 touchdowns during that span. And only 1 was doing it in his first 3 years as a starting Quarterback in the National Football League - Tony Romo.

Read the rest. He fumbles too much, but I wouldn't trade him for anything. I think he has an owner who's too in love with media. I think he has a coach who should be coordinating. I think the Cowboys have problems. I don't think quarterback is one of them.
