The question concerning the Cowboys is can Tony Romo be the man to lead the Cowboys to glory? There’s always been that question looming over his head simply because he hasn’t won yet. And it’s unfair to not consider his other teammates since it’s an entire effort to win the Super Bowl. But we have reached a time frame in NFL history where the passers who can make the most game-breaking plays wins games. There’s the younger generation of hybrid passer-rushers in Kaepernick, Griffin, and Wilson, but who knows if they will stay healthy and relevant. The individuals who have stayed relevant – Manning, Brees, Brady, Roethlisberger – have all won Super Bowls, some of them multiple.
Can Romo reach that elite level of franchise quarterbacks? Hopefully soon the answer will be yes.
