Former Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo recently endeavored to rank every quarterback from the 2013 NFL season for TheSidelineView.com, and he has Tony Romo in the middle of the pack--near the top of the middle of the pack, but all the same--in terms of starters.
Romo ranks 14th overall with a 7.9 rating on a scale from 5-9, which puts him in the category of signal-callers described by Angelo thusly:
“Talented, has good history of play, but had a subpar year. Lack of durability, deficiency in an intangible area, poor cast around him or coaching. Any of these reasons may have kept him from playing to his potential. May be a descending player.”
So it’s not all bad news. They said Romo was “talented,” after all. But Angelo had much more to say about Romo in particular, and it wasn’t terribly flattering.
“He has a blind spot,” Angelo said of Romo. “His instincts are just average and his accuracy is not consistent enough given the amount of times they let him wing it and that’s what he does...wing it. His mental toughness is suspect and physically he is the danger zone given his two back surgeries.”
