Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo is now the fourth-highest rated passer in the NFL. But his team is 2-2, and not exactly looking like a strong Super Bowl contender--which, in Dallas at least, is what you’re judged by as a quarterback.
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones knows this well.
“You can be a hell of a passer, now, and still not win these games,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “You can be a heck of a quarterback and not win them. … By all accounts, (Rivers) is a top quarterback out there in San Diego, and yet, they had won one out of three. You’ve got to have a lot of things going for you. It’s obviously a lot of people involved that lost the game out there the other day for the Cowboys, and we’ve got to get them going in the right direction.”
Romo’s passer rating on the year is 105.0. He trails only his upcoming counterpart, Peyton Manning (138.0), the guys who just beat him, Philip Rivers (118.8) and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers (105.1).
Which is cool. But the Cowboys are still living in .500-ville, as they always have been in the Jason Garrett era.
