Former Cowboy Danny White saw every Tony Romo pass this season as the analyst for the club’s national radio broadcasts. He mostly loved what he saw.
“I’m not sure this team would have won more than three games this season with others at quarterback,” White said. “I’d like to see Peyton [Manning] or some others who aren’t mobile try to perform with what Tony had around him. And I just really liked the way he played the second half of this season, throwing out of the pocket, setting his feet, cutting the interceptions way down. I thought in many ways it was his best season.”
“If you broke down his first 16 interceptions this season, maybe 10 involved some breakdown and six were on him,” White said. “Last night, all three were on Tony. That last one where he didn’t set his feet and tried to throw over a guy, oh, it’s the same kind of throw he made against [the Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul] that went for a touchdown.
“Every quarterback ought to be entitled to have a bad game. Now I know the next question is: Why does it have to be the biggest game?”
