Former Cowboys great Roger Staubach can’t get over how much Tony Romo has been ripped for his fourth quarter interception that led to last week’s loss to the Broncos.
“He played one of the most sensational games I’ve ever seen,” Staubach said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It makes no sense. Those people who blame him, I don’t know, they ought to take a look at their lives.
“I’ve been a quarterback and I know this guy is playing great football. Seeing critics blame these tough losses, especially this game, on him sends a message to me that some people will never cut him a break. I can’t believe it.
“I mean, there were 48 points created by the offense against a good team. The defense gave up 51 points. It makes no sense. This was one of the greatest performances by a quarterback in Cowboys history.”
Staubach says Romo is one of the Cowboys best quarterbacks to play.
“I’ve watched him play and know what he does out there,” Staubach said. “As a former quarterback, I can tell you we’re lucky to have him. He’s an outstanding NFL quarterback.
“It’s not just the statistics. His instincts are really good.”
It really doesn’t matter what kind of stats Romo has put up during his career, the bottom line is that he’s achieved nothing so far. He’s almost done nothing in the playoffs and seems to throw interceptions at the most inopportune times during big games.
