Cowboys Making Case for Tony Romo for NFL MVP

After claiming their first division title since 2009, the Cowboys started making a case for quarterback Tony Romo as the NFL MVP, Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas reports.

“He certainly is in my book,” owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sunday after the Cowboys clinched the NFC East title with a 42-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts, keyed by Romo completing 18 of 20 passes for 218 yards and four touchdowns. “He is for me.

“Yes, he is, because [DeMarco] Murray has certainly carried his share, but Tony’s quarterbacking this year was indispensable. We couldn’t have had the team, and we have a team that probably right now is in the top four or five teams in the league. That’s pretty good qualification of the vote.”

“Hell yeah, he is. He’s the MVP,” said receiver Dez Bryant, who caught his 14th touchdown pass of the season Sunday. “Look at the performance. He’s giving ’em hell in December. Icing on the cake. Give it to him. He’s doing a hell of a job.”

“He’s got to be up for it,” tight end Jason Witten said. “I know there’s other quarterbacks that have played well. We’re a little bit biased, but if you take that first game out of the season and really the first half, he’s been remarkable the way he’s done it.

“He just makes big play after big play, and he creates a lot of those. I definitely think it’s his best season. His name needs to be mentioned. I know some of those other guys have played well, but with this team and what he’s done, he would get my vote.”
