In a recent interview with 1050 ESPN Radio, Brandon Jacobs offered up his not-so-flattering thoughts on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

"I don't think he's that good a passer, to be honest with you," Jacobs said of Romo. "His luck will be gone sooner or later. If you were to keep [him] in the pocket. he's not that effective."

Jacobs has a point. When Tony Romo sees and feels pressure and is forced to stay in the pocket, he isn't nearly as good a player.

The 2009 season will be critical for Romo (and it may be his last in Dallas) as he will be without Terrell Owens. In their time together, Owens was responsible for 39 touchdown receptions.

Maybe the stigma that's most important for Romo to shake is that he is a chronic choker.

In his career he has recorded zero playoff wins.

Did I mention 2009 would be critical for Romo?
