Few players take more flak for their team's shortcomings than Tony "LeBron" Romo.
Not only does Romo put up big-time numbers and make breathtaking throws on a regular basis, but he is more "clutch" than Cowboys fans give him credit for.
Think back to Week 2, when Romo came back into the game against the vaunted 49ers defense with a bruised lung to win the game.
Does he make his share of facepalm-inducing mistakes at the end of games? Sure. But the reality is that Romo is responsible for the success the Cowboys do enjoy, rather than the man standing in the way of them taking the next step and becoming perennial Super Bowl contenders.
After all, he had 31 touchdown passes and just 10 interceptions last year.
Bottom line, if Cowboy fans do not want Tony Romo as their quarterback because he is not a "winner" (whatever that means), there are at least 25 other teams that would let him be their quarterback in a heartbeat.
Tight end Jason Witten said it best:
I think Tony Romo is an elite quarterback who gives you a chance to compete for a championship.
