Tony Romo's Biggest Flaws and How to Fix Them
Tony Romo became a top-10 quarterback in 2011, statistically speaking. But there's no such qualifier for becoming an elite or Super Bowl quarterback. If the 32-year-old Dallas Cowboy wants to meet that standard, I have a few friendly suggestions for him.
Get Everyone Involved in the Offense
Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees are the kings of this, finding 10 or 11 different receivers on a given day en route to a big victory. Romo has the tools around him to help engineer such generosity. Dez Bryant and Miles Austin are more than capable receivers, and let's not forget about tight end Jason Witten, who was creating matchup issues in defensive secondaries while Rob Gronkowski was still drinking Capri Suns.
If Romo can distribute the ball like other elite play-callers do, we'll see less diving at the goal line in games where he feels like the entire team is on his back.
Win Games Against Your Divisional Opponents
Dallas beat the Redskins twice last season...and that was it. The Cowboys were swept by both the Eagles and Giants (three of those games nationally televised). Elite quarterbacks can't lose twice to the same team.
Continue to Avoid Turnovers
Aside from that humiliating fumble against the Jets in Week 1 (another nationally-televised loss), Romo did a good job of this last fall. He threw only 10 interceptions, fewer than Tom Brady, Eli Manning and Matthew Stafford. A young Cowboys defense will benefit greatly from Romo's continued ball security.
