There’s been a lot of talk about windows opening and closing in Dallas throughout the year, with even the owner acknowledging the time to win is now. While a few vital pieces of the Cowboys’ championship puzzle are getting long in the tooth, the conversation really begins and ends with quarterback Tony Romo. If he’s playing at or near his potential, the Cowboys will have a shot to win it all.
Romo is no spring chicken himself, however, now entering his age 32 season. Romo sat on the Cowboys’ bench for a couple of seasons prior to eventually winning the starting job, and some people forget he was already 26 years old before getting that opportunity. With the production of most other positions in the NFL peaking well before age 32, it’s only natural to question how much fuel Romo has left in the tank. Here’s the answer. . .
- 339 for 522 (64.9 percent completion percentage) for 4,238 yards, 28 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
