Tony Romo had a career year in 2011, and if week one’s victory over the Giants at New York is any indicator, Romo still hasn’t peaked as an NFL quarterback. In fact, Romo’s play has been so impressive of late, that one former NFL MVP turned NFL analyst believes Romo could be in the mix for the league’s highest individual honor in 2012--that is, if the Cowboys remain healthy enough as a team.
“My feeling is that if everybody stays healthy around him, he will be in the discussion for NFL MVP come the end of the year,” Boomer Esiason told the “Elf and Slater Show” on 105.3 FM The Fan on Friday, via the Dallas Morning News.
Esiason, who (for good reason) believes Romo is going to make “a lot of money” when a new deal is struck, wasn’t only full of praise for his fellow signal caller. He also believes, as the Cowboys seem to, that Dez Bryant has all the tools to be an elite receiver at this level.
“When he wants to play,” Esiason said of Bryant, “that kid’s almost impossible to stop.”
