Troy Aikman and Roger Staubauch; now those were some great quarterback's for the so called "America's Team."
Being a QB for the Dallas Cowboy's comes with more responsibility and pressure than any other team in the league. Romo is no stranger to being ridiculed by fans and the media.
Taking a vacation with tight end Jason Witten and having his women attend games and becoming a "distraction," and collapsing in the shower after a terrible 44-6 loss to the Eagles, have all been reasons why he's one of the most overrated QB's in the league.
Wait a minute; these things have nothing to do with football.
Of course the previous December fall-outs for the Dallas Cowboys are all his fault too, right?
And what about the bobbled snap? Yes, the botched snap that cost them the playoff game against the Seahawks is definitely the reason he is such a bad QB, right?
He has had an entire three years as the starting QB to win the Super Bowl.
Tom Brady won his first year as the starter, and he was a sixth round draft pick out of the University of Michigan.
Romo wasn't even drafted and came out of the little regarded Eastern Illinois. So he can't be that great, right?
He has only been selected for the Pro Bowl two times out of three years of starting.
He has only won about 70% of his games as a starter. Who cares if he has never had a losing season? The month of December is going to prohibit any Hall of Fame talks.
Okay this December is a little different, but he will be back to his old ways soon enough. Averaging well over 300 yards in this month doesn't mean anything, he's still the same Tony Romo who has been seen in the media kissing on Jessica Simpson.
That is why he is the worst QB in the league.
Who cares if he is the first Cowboy ever to pass for over 4,000 yards in a season. He only has done it twice in three full seasons.
Does it matter that no Cowboy QB has ever thrown as many touchdown passes in a season as him? No, that doesn't matter.
His QB rating has been hovering just under 100 each year. That doesn't cancel out the fact that he went to Las Vegas for a vacation mid-season with Miles Austin.
Terrell Owens is the reason his stats are so good, so that doesn't even matter.
Who cares if T.O is gone now? It doesn't matter if he has even better stats this year. And that he has only thrown one interception in December so far; an interception that really wasn't his fault. So what if he is having the best December ever.
The month isn't over.
Who cares if he is sneaking in the NFC Pro Bowl picture again? He didn't go last year.
If they beat the Eagles next week, (which I highly doubt they will) he'll probably plan a trip with Wade Phillips, or probably be seen with Jessica Simpson again.
That's why he's the worst QB in the league...right?
