Romo Is "Part of the Solution and Not the Problem": Staubach Talks to Huffington Post

Categories: Dallas Cowboys
Tony Romo - 49ers.jpg
Yesterday over on Unfair Park, a few folks asked if maybe we could go ahead and re-open the Sportatorium, if only to give y'all a place to chit and chat in an open thread. To which I said: Sure, let's do that.

Moments ago Huffington Post a Q&A with one Captain America, who addresses myriad topics -- chief among 'em, the late-game play of one Tony Romo, named by 111 NFL players as the second-most overrated player in the game at the mid-season mark. Roger Staubach doesn't agree; matter of fact, he thinks the Cowboys are looking more and more like a playoff team, if not a Super Bowl conten ... well, let's not get carried away.
Why do you think Tony Romo has so often struggled late in games?

Tony is a great athlete, and he's made a lot of big plays. [He's made] more than some he hasn't made. I think getting Jason Garret as the head coach, he's really working with Tony as far as the whole team concept. They've stumbled a little bit this year. They believe a whole lot in Tony. If we had this conversation at the end of the year -- I'm going to predict that this team is going to end up as a playoff team. Right now, they've had maybe everything go wrong, and the second half it will go right. But I'm a Romo fan. I think Tony is part of the solution and not the problem.
Read the whole thing here. You know what to do after.

It feels good to be home. The other RW's new home sucks. I can't see the comments section from my iPhone.

I don't think Romo is overrated at all, as TRDP1 said..He's freaking running for his life. 

Switch him and ARodg and the Pack are still 6-2 at worst.  Hmm..Put ARodg on the Cowpokes and they probably beat NYJ and the Patriots though. 

Quandary wrapped in an enigma, methinks.

One thing I know for sure, Bobby Wilonsky is my homeboy...and we need a change/update to the banner..Kill the midget's name off it atleast.

First, thanks RW.

I've come around on Romo. Yeah he's wild ass out there, but if you look at the big picture, the guy is running for his life most of the time with that patchwork offensive line. Compound that with a running game that has been barely there, and WR's that are fragile physically and mentally, and that may or may not know their plays or how to run routes. Overrated? Give me a break. And only one more vote for Tebow? That survey is bullshit.

Hell, I didn't even know he had a new home. Did Occupy Dallas kick him out of the underpass?

I haven't said anything offensive on RW's new blog and my comments get moderated.

I think Bob realizes it really isn't that hard to do a sports blog. A lot less goes into it than the reporting they do at city hall.

Anthony Wright was a friend of mine, and Romo, sir, is no Anthony Wright.

Hey, in a perfect world I'd spend all day tracking down stats, assistant coaches and third-string QBs, like in the olden days. Alas. I'll do the best I can in between DISD, City Hall and Texxas Jam items.

You're doing fine Bob..and we all appreciate your efforts as well.  Now ask Tone to give Kergo a spot on the City of Ate and Merten a job up in heara..and you can kick back and take a hit of your flask..and laugh at all the OD folks...like us.

Haha this I know. I was complimenting you on the great work you do for the DO. I'm impressed by what you guys report. Just stating sports is a sandbox compared to the real world.
