    Tony Romo's greatest strength was also his greatest weakness: masking deficiencies on the team. He did it so well that he fooled Jerry Jones into not providing him any help. It wasn't until he went down in 2015 that Jerry decided to do something about that, which was too late. In fact, any time he went down, the deficiencies on the team became glaringly obvious.

    He was never a top tier guy. Inability to not make mistakes at critical moments coupled with NEVER winning 2 playoff games in the same year was a problem too. Lack of any real O-Line last 3 years didn't help either.

    If Romo had been able to run it in for a touchdown after that botched snap it would be a legendary play in his favor. It would have labeled him major clutch.

    I've got news for you, as a bear's fan we would have taken Tony Romo in a heartbeat for his career over Rex Grossman and Jay Cutler. Romo's biggest problem was that he played for Dallas which was a team that despite mediocre talent had the same expectations every year. You put him on a mid-level team then it gives him a chance to overachieve and completely change the perspective of his career.

    I never liked Romo because I was an Eagles diehard fan. I was wrong! Looking back now and listening to him do color commentary I believe he's the smartest analyst out there today! I would give anything to have my hometown team the Eagles hire him as QB coach or offensive coach to teach Carson Wentz all the things that come out of Romo when he analyzes any game he's broadcasting! He's the best out there!!

    Romo was a victim of his own athleticism. He was a great athlete playing quarterback, not a great quarterback. He probably could of played shortstop for the Yankees, but just wasn’t great. Just a great athlete

    That 2014 season they should've been 14-2 and held the NFC Championship game, I think that Monday Night Game loss at the Redskins cost them the 1st seed which would've put them at least 13-3 but that following week against the Cardinals without Romo was also a big blow to their Franchise record breaking season. I truly thought that would be the year the Cowboys return to the Superbowl. Everyone else finished 12-4 or less.

    I always been a Cowboys fan dating back to 1972 NFC champingship game Staubach pulled out at the end against John Brodie of 49ers. In my opinion Tony Romo was the best QB the Cowboys ever had. He was like Staubach in that they always had a chance to win at the end . So that being said and Staubach being my hero. I take Staubach or Romo agains any other QB to play the game. Tony Tiger has no reason to hang his head, he was great ! William Bass

    Life long Dallas fan, Tony and Jason kept their jobs by being the biggest brown nosers to JJ. Tony had the best stats against lousy opponents, but if he played any half decent team or a big game....Tony became the chokest choker the nfl has ever known.....having said that Dallas problems have one source and that is JJ. Tony the choke happened because of JJ. Tony was the second coming of Danny white, but with a larger choke factor.

    Stat monster without the self image to be a Superbowl champion. A kid from a town of 10,000, playing for Eastern Illinois playing for America's team what more could he want? I knew it would never happen for him when his personal life peaked. Partying with Britney Spears, then the huge contract in 2013 I think.

    Romo is all heart. His dad tells a story about being late and unable to take 15 year old Tony to a HS basketball game. When he is finally driving home, he comes across Tony, on a bicycle, in a blizzard riding the 15 miles to get to the game. It made his dad cry. Let the people say what they want. We're talking about a league where Jay Cutler was a 1st round talent and didn't want it. Romo's journey, alone, makes him worth remembering.

    Romo didn't suck, in fact he was pretty great, unfortunately...a Romo meltdown was unlike any other meltdown. Other QB's gaffed, he downright imploded. During his tenure, Cowboys losses were often something to see. He was not only one of the most clutch QBs of all time, but somehow also the antithesis of that in the most important moments.

    I always thought he was great, yes, a couple of bad picks and such, but the real challenge was dealing with a weak O-line during the beginning of his career and a defense that basically sucked the majority of the time. Come on, how many times were they up in the 4th QTR, and the defense gave up the winning touchdown and Romo had to try and come back? And OMG, all the games they scored over 30+ points and they still lost!?! Any other team would have won with 30+ games.

    I've been a Cowboys fan since moving to Plano Tx at age 7 in late 1975, and that's been very hard since Aikman. Too much flash, too many egos, an owner that should just mind his business, a soft young Jason Garret as coach, who was a back up QB to Aikman etc. I thought Romo had all the potential but had too many individual misfits on the team to work with, and dictator QB wasn't his style. They needed an Aikman or someone to whip the team in shape. 2nd, Romos an "all around" athlete that is the type to throw his car keys up and catch them behind his back under a leg, and NOT a die hard QB, (also what they needed in his yrs). He had Jason Whitten, who could have been a Cowboy in 1978, (old school and real), and that was about it. Too many idiots on his teams.

    You lack actual facts on your videos and just present half truths along with your opinions. And I wasn’t going to say anything until you brought up the 07 playoff game and pretty much say Romo chocked by throwing an interception at the end of the game. Why didn’t you mention that he was under pressure all game long, or that all of his receivers dropped multiple balls including Mr.Reliable (#82)? Did you miss the part were balls were dropped that would’ve resulted in first downs on that final drive forcing Romo to throw a Hail Mary into the end zone on 4th down with time running out??? The owners, coaches, and team failed Romo multiple times throughout his career. It wasn’t always on him.

    Cowboys shouldn't've even been CLOSE in games they blamed Romo for losing at the end. The reason they were still in those games was usually because of something miraculous he did. He'd make 3 or 4 absolute miracle plays to keep those games close, and all people noticed was he didn't deliver the 4th or 5th miracle for the win. His body was broken by the time Dak waltzed into the picture. Dak's career started with the supporting cast Tony never got, and he got a lot more love than Tony ever got for doing less than Tony ever did, in my humble opinion.
