Cowboys great Roger Staubach made an appearance on 105.3 The Fan’s Nathan & MDog last week and stated that he believes Tony Romo is a “championship quarterback.”
“I’m a Tony Romo fan. Obviously there are people that are right with me and others that say Roger, you know. Well, I just look at it. I just have a feel. I had a feel when Troy Aikman came to this team,” said Staubach, via the Dallas Morning News. “That’s the first time I had a feel other than when Danny White left. Danny White was a really good quarterback by the way, and I don’t think we had a quarterback again that walked onto the field, you said, “Hey, we’re going to win this game,” until Troy Aikman. Troy Aikman was phenomenal. I think Tony Romo is a championship quarterback. He can take a team to a championship. He can’t do it by himself, but I really believe he can do it. I just see what he does on the field, the plays he makes, the throws he makes, the sense that he has to move in the pocket so I’m pulling really hard for Tony because I really believe he is one heck of a quarterback, and that’s a feeling from somebody that I didn’t say that about any other quarterbacks except for Troy Aikman. I think Tony is the right quarterback, and we’re lucky to have Tony Romo.”
While Saubach is certainly entitle to his opinion, I’ll believe Romo is a championship quarterback when he actually wins more than one playoff game and wins a Super Bowl.
