After going 4-0 last month, Tony Romo’s career record in the month of November is a nearly unblemished 19-2; in December, he’s 7-10, a statistic that’s gotten a lot of play in various media outlets this week, as the calendar has turned.
But Romo isn’t one to give much credence to numbers like these, good or bad. According to Romo, a small sample size and a handful of variables skew these numbers to the point that overanalyzing them is just kind of ridiculous.
"The problem with December sometimes is I don't know how many times you're out of the playoffs, in the playoffs," Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. "That stuff plays a role. Sometimes you're sitting starters. Sometimes you don't. Sometimes you've got Philly, Baltimore and the Giants to finish the year.
"You need to make it over 15 years is what you need to do, not four or five years. It's just silly. Any stat you can make over a short period of time. That's four games. Stats are just stuff, in that regard, they come and go with whatever's in vogue recently."
