There aren’t a whole lot of players in the NFL who are more polarizing than Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo, at least not this side of Tim Tebow. Some think he’s great; some think he’s bad; some think he’s average, and can’t seem to comprehend why others think he’s great or bad.
But it’s pretty clear that the New York Giants, who have gotten to know Romo as well as just about anyone over the years, have a good deal of respect for the Cowboys’ signal caller.
“He didn’t make a lot of mistakes in the first game,” Giants' defensive end Justin Tuck said of Romo’s three touchdown, one interception performance in week one, per the Dallas Morning News. “That is the thing about Tony. I know a lot of people give him grief when he’s on a streak where he’s not playing well, but when he’s on a streak playing well, like he was on that night, he’s one of the best in the league, hands down. I have seen where he has taken over games, whether that be with his scrambling to prolong plays or just standing in the pocket.
“He can do it all.”
Cornerback Antrel Rolle took the praise of Romo a bit further.
“Tony Romo, he’s an excellent quarterback in my eyes,” he said. “I don’t think he gets the credit he deserves. Some of the throws he makes, it still stuns me.”
