Since taking over as the Dallas Cowboys’ starting quarterback, Tony Romo has become one of the more polarizing figures in the National Football League and the target for a great deal of criticism both here in Dallas and abroad, in rival cities like Philly, New York, and DC.
This is predictable, of course--he serves as a figurehead of the most loved and hated team in the NFL--but according to some, the criticism of Romo is just plain off-target. The group includes Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach.
"He hasn't been the problem," Staubach said recently, per the Dallas Morning News. "He's done unbelievable. He's right at the top of the NFL as far as a quarterback -- as far as his statistics and the things he does. He moves around the pocket. He makes great plays.
"Our quarterback is not our problem in Dallas. We've got a Super Bowl quarterback...I really believe that the league is so close in parity...and Dallas is the kind of team with Jason [Garrett] that they can be right there in the thick of it this year...And they have the quarterback that can do it."
