Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning: Who Has a Better 2012 Season?
It seems that people debate this every year, despite the fact that Eli Manning has proven to be Mr. Clutch, while Tony Romo can be counted on to shrink from the bigger moments he's presented with season in and season out.
I realize there's nearly a cottage industry built around Romo hate at this point, especially his numerous fourth-quarter disasters. What gets forgotten are gutty performances like the Cowboys' overtime win over the 49ers last year, which Romo finished with a partially collapsed lung and fractured ribs.
If Brett Favre had done that, they'd still be filming an NFL Films four-part special about the game, but because it was Romo, it's pretty much forgotten in favor of his fourth-quarter failures.
With that said, when we look forward to the 2012 season, I just don't see much changing with regard to the fortunes of these two quarterbacks. Yes, as my friend and Go Route editor Josh Zerkle points out in the video above, Romo will have a plethora of weapons—provided they all stay healthy, he should shine.
Meanwhile, Manning doesn't need everything around him to be perfect to shine—in fact, he's made a career of turning adversity into success. Re-shuffled offensive line? No problem. Receivers going down left and right? Just keep chucking it. New tight end shows up at nearly 300 pounds? Eli will make it work.
Let us know in the comments below who your pick is to have the better season in 2012—Manning or Romo?
