Amani Toomer has turned up the heat on his former teammate.
On The Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York 98.7 FM, he made no bones about declaring Tony Romo the superior quarterback when compared with Eli Manning (per ESPN.com).
When confronted with Romo's late-game follies, he waffled slightly and admitted that Eli was better in the clutch. But he'd still take Romo to be his quarterback.
People give the edge to Manning because of his two Super Bowl rings. The Dallas Cowboys haven't recently enjoyed the same success as the Giants, but Toomer isn't wrong.
The NFL did well to kick off the season with this classic rivalry. The game will certainly be entertaining and will come down to Dallas' ability to slow down New York's defensive line.
That's no simple task.
Regardless, the offensive line will do its job well enough for Romo to edge Eli in passing yards and touchdowns. More importantly, the Cowboys will squeak out a hard-fought win.
