Romo not that good - Theismann

Shame this couldn't have been 'news' closer to our game with them:

Romo not that good - Theismann

"Soon or later we have to come to the realization that Tony isn't a very good quarterback," Theismann told Brady & Lang on Sportsnet 590 The Fan Tuesday. "He throws interceptions that (make) you shake your head. If it's all the wide receivers' fault then maybe he should get some new wide receivers, or they need to come up with some new route combinations that guys can understand."
Romo matched a career high with five interceptions, two of them returned for touchdowns as the Bears won 34-18 on Monday night.
"What hit me last night is, Tony isn't really that good," Theismann said. "Just because he wears a star on his helmet -- we all think that people who are Dallas Cowboys, 'ooh they're wonderful and ooh they're terrific, ooh they're the next Roger Staubach' or whatever the heck they want to say. They're full of bologna.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

Romo did break Staubachs TD record the other night. But Joe's right. Romo's good but I dont think he's as good as many think.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

I think Romo is a little bit of a Gunslinger like Favre use to be and Cutler can be at times. Let me throw it out there and see if my guy can make a play. Sometimes he looks great and other times, it seems like he is just throwing it up. I think as a CB or Safety, you can definitely peek into the back field and watch his eys and get a jump.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

I dont disagree with Joe, but out of habit i will anyway. Joe sucks. Tony Romo can make throws with his left hand that Joe couldnt even pretend to make with his right. Tony takes chances. Joe think's he's god's gift to us. screw him.

Romo is a good qb IMO, look at his overall numbers and record it's pretty good. He's not Brady or Manning or Rodgers etc but he's no scrub

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

I've seen Romo dodge pressure that there is no way he could actually see. He has a sixth sense in the pocket. It's frustrating.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

JT is dead wrong here. If Romo was a Redskin and did what he did Mon. night he'd be ripping the wr's, just like Gruden was. Yeah Romo is risk taker but so what? That's part what makes him a good QB.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

Joey Sunshine is a little over-the-top here. While I have no love for Romo, he consistently puts up numbers which are much better than a QB who is "not that good."

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

This is the same guy that thought Jason Campbell was a good QB? Yeah, he doesn't have a clue apparently about good QBs.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

Over the top perhaps, what he should have said is Romo is overrated and still makes too many dumb decisions that a guy with his experience just shouldn't make. Romo is in the 2nd tier of QBs in the league, good but not great.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

I lived in Dallas for 9 years, and I am friends with many Cowboys fans. My general impression is that Romo is underrated by the fans, not overrated. I hear Cowboys fans often say how much Romo sucks, and I'm constantly reminding them what their team was like with Quincy Carter and Drew Bledsoe. During the time between Aikman and Romo the Cowboys were one of the worst teams in the league.

I would agree with your assessment. You should be Joey Sunshine's spokesperson, Matty.

Re: Romo not that good - Theismann

I think SmootSmack is right when he said the other day that Romo is good but not likely to get much better than he already is. He's kind of reached Frerotte status now, and with Kyle Orton as the backup the Cowboys really have no future at QB while the Redskins have RG3 and KC1

Yeah that's right. SmootSmack just talked about SmootSmack in the 3rd person.
