With the Cowboys faithful enduring so much turmoil at the QB position during the Pre-Romo Era (i.e. Chad Hutchinson, Quincy Carter, Vinny Testaverde, Drew Bledsoe, Drew Henson, etc.) it's easy to see why Tony Romo has been one of the most exciting players on the Cowboys' roster since his arrival.
When he's at peak performance, he's breathtaking to watch. And even when it all falls apart, he usually collapses in enthralling fashion.
Opposing fans say he's terrible, not good enough, anti-clutch, we've heard the list time and time again.
Maybe they're just scared of his potential.
You see, in terms of career passer rating, Tony Romo ranks second on the all-time list. Second, as in second place. Ever heard of Steve Young? Peyton Manning? Tom Brady? Joe Montana?
Yup. He's got them all beat.
So say what you want about Tony Romo, but his career to this point has simply been marked by being unlucky at inopportune times.
Look for that luck to turn around in 2012.
And that, my friends, will be exciting to watch.
