Tony Romo will head off to the broadcast booth after 14 seasons in the NFL. Romo will join CBS Sports as a game analyst.
What is Romo’s legacy? He had a lot of good moments, but not enough great moments. He is 21st in touchdown passes(248) in NFL history. He is the Cowboys’ all-time leader in touchdown passes, QB rating and yards; all those numbers are better than Hall of Famers and former Cowboy greats Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach. He had 30-game winning drives, which is better than Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Terry Bradshaw, Dan Fouts, Ken Stabler, Kurt Warner, Aikman and Staubach to name a few. However, most people only remember the failures; dropping the snap against the Seahawks, interception against the Giants in the playoffs (2007 season), and so much more. Romo falls short because of his playoff failures. He is 2-4 in the playoffs. In the end, Romo did not win enough when it mattered the most!
If Romo could have found a way to win one Super Bowl, maybe he would have a case.
The Verdict: Romo makes “The Hall of Good.”
