    I have a pretty big concern for Dallas Cowboys fans right now.

    You see, the Cowboys are 8-3 and having their best season in the Jason Garrett era and could still very possibly miss out on the postseason, even if they manage a 10-win season (see the Arizona Cardinals of last season).

    And when that happens, with rampant fears of 6-10 long past, Cowboys fans will be angry and upset and blaming the usual suspects: "The Cowboys will never win with Tony Romo," they'll say.

    But you know what? Romo is having his best season ever and he's doing it with a twice surgically repaired back and most recently two fractures in that same back. So Romo haters, move on to someone else.

    Since the season opener against the 49ers in which he threw four picks, Romo has been phenomenal. That was evidenced once again on Sunday night in a big game on a big stage, when Romo tossed four touchdowns and had no turnovers for a pristine quarterback rating of 143.8.

    in fact, since that 49ers loss, which almost was a huge Cowboys comeback in the second half, Romo is second in the league in quarterback rating to one guy — Aaron Rodgers.

    The days of Romo bashing should be over, and with each passing week it's becoming more understandable why both Romo and the Cowboys think he can play effectively until at least age 39. Some things get better with age, and it appears Romo is doing just that.
