Former NFL Lineman Travis Johson Goes on Tony Romo Rant [VIDEO]
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say former Texans defensive lineman Travis Johnson is not a big fan of Tony Romo.
Now let’s break down this Tony Romo rant piece by piece and show you how wrong this guy is.
“When Dallas, he had everything around him, and is a loser.”got to
Romo sat and watched a 6-10 last-place Dallas team as a rookie. His second year the Cowboys went 9-7. They were 3-3 when he took over at quarterback in 2006. Dallas went 6-4 (and went to the playoffs) after he became the starter that season. That’s a .473 winning percentage with Romo on the bench before he was promoted. Dallas has a .591 winning percentage in games Romo has started.
“At one time he had five Pro Bowlers on the offensive line.”
That’s not true. The most Pro Bowlers on Dallas’ offensive line at one point since Romo became the starter is three, which is excellent, but still is not five. It’s worth pointing out that over the last three seasons Dallas has had one Pro Bowl offensive lineman: center Andre Gurode in 2010.
“Because they have no passing game, so nobody’s worried about the run.”
Tony Romo has started more than 10 games five times in his career. Three of those seasons he finished third in the NFL in passing yards, and another time he finished seventh. His 4,903 yards last season is the ninth highest single-season total in NFL history. He has finished in the top 10 in touchdown passes each of his five full seasons as a starter.
“Tony Romo has not earned a dollar he’s been given in this league.”
Romo is second in Cowboys history in passing yards, first in touchdown passes and first in quarterback rating. And Dallas has had a better winning percentage with Romo as a starter than it did with Troy Aikman (Aikman’s winning percentage as a starter was .569, Romo’s is .591, and let’s just agree that Aikman had a wee bit more talent around him).
Now I am not the biggest Romo fan myself, but he just signed that huge contract. So sorry Romo haters, that are Cowboys fans hes not going anywhere. Remember the season kicks off September 8th on Sunday night football against the Giants.
