    Today, let's start with our concluding point: Tony Romo is playing some of the worst football of his career.

    After a 4 interception performance against the Giants, not only does he take over the league lead in interceptions, but he does it by a healthy margin with 13. 3 others have 10 picks, the likes of Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden, and Andy Dalton.

    Interceptions are not the be-all, end-all of Quarterbacking, but to have elite QB rating numbers and efficiency, you are going to have to have 2 to 3 times as many touchdowns as interceptions. Drew Brees has thrown plenty of picks in the last 5 seasons (72), but when you have 167 touchdowns during that same stretch (+95), odds are pretty good that you are having success.

    Heck, the all-time interception king is Brett Favre, with a likely untouchable total of 336, but given his equally all-time leading touchdown totals of 508, was seen as much more good than bad (+172).

    Romo is +73 for his career, but a painful -4 for his season. And his 13 picks is already the 3rd most of his 7-year career. After always being amongst the league leaders in QB rating with numbers in the mid to high 90s, he finds himself below Jay Cutler and right next to Michael Vick in 2012, with a 78 QB rating (very close to Quincy Carter's 71-type numbers).
