Don't forget that he played injured for the last 7 games. He won't be 100% until next season. There were several key injuries that hurt this team than the mainstream media will ever discuss because it won't get headlines. Losing Matt McBriar and Felix Jones were major losses and Marion Barber never recovered from his dislocated toe. Throw in the fact that we were stuck with starting our 3rd team safety and 3rd team left guard and you can start to see that the holes were too big for one player to fill. Romo is a very good player. Not great, but very good. He may show us that he is great one day by winning a Super Bowl.
The truth is that Tony makes the offensive line better because he can avoid unblocked defenders. He makes the receivers better because he can buy time for receivers to get open. He makes the running backs better because he makes the defense respect the pass. He even makes our defense better because they get time to rest and they aren't constantly put in bad field position.
Does he turn the ball over too often? Yes. But part of what makes him great is what makes you shake your head. He can turn an awful play into a touchdown or he can make an awful play worse by trying to make every play a touchdown. You have to take the good with the bad when it comes to a player like that.
Hopefully Tony can find the spark that everyone loves to see from him during the offseason. We all want to see him making plays and having fun while doing it. Sometimes a season like this one can remind players to focus on what is important.
Let's look at things through a rational and fair scope before we throw him out with the trash. Or have too many "fans" already forgotten the days of Quincy Carter, Chad Hutchinson, Drew Henson, Ryan Leaf, Anthony Wright, Drew Bledsoe, Vinny Testaverde, and Clint Stoerner? Now those were some quarterbacks to complain about.
