Brett Favre: Tony Romo is the quarterback most like me


 Brett Favre: Tony Romo is the quarterback most like me
Unhappy topic by ajeana - 06-26-2012, 07:04 PM - Boxden > BX SportsCenter


Of all the active quarterbacks in the NFL, one catches Brett Favre’s eye as more like him than anyone else: Tony Romo.

In an interview with Sanders on NFL Network, Favre discussed what he likes about several active quarterbacks. But he said the one who plays the game the way he played it is Romo.

“Romo is probably more like me than any of those guys,” Favre said. “I think way too much is cast upon him, good or bad. It’s Dallas, and much is expected. He’s carried those guys. I watched him last year, and I like Tony. I like the way he plays. I think at times he’s underrated.”

The most common knock on Romo is that the Cowboys have only won one playoff game in his time in Dallas, but both Favre and Sanders suggested that that’s a problem with Romo’s teammates. Specifically, they both agreed that other players on the Cowboys’ offense often look like they don’t know what they’re doing.

“I’m watching him, right before the snap, he’s telling guys–” Favre said.

“They don’t know what they’re doing,” Sanders interjected.

“How in the world are you going to have a positive play when the ball is coming and you’re telling guys?” Favre said, motioning as if Romo is having to point to his teammates where they’re supposed to line up.

An ability to make plays even when his teammates don’t know what they’re doing may speak well for Romo. But it doesn’t say much for the Cowboys’ coaching staff

Brett's the best football player of all time and with this statement I can say he's true because Romo makes more mistakes than a 8 year old would with a college English paper.

Why would we believe them just because they were great? We are free to form our own opinions, and if any of those guys were to call me and personally tell me Romo was the best QB, I would just hang the phone up. If you let people think for you, you're a waste of space on this earth.

Anyway, I do agree with their statement about Romo's team. There was this one game where the center, I think he's fired by now, kept snapping the ball early, over Romo's head, etc. and Romo kept getting the blame for that loss but the center single-handedly threw the game away. I didn't ever think that could be possible, but it is.

Or how about that 3rd and 5 wide open pass Romo missed to Miles Austinx. Austin was the one who misjudged the ball and throttled his speed. Had he maintained his speed he would have caught the ball in stride and had a touchdown. But Romo got all the blame. I'm not defending him (I'm not a fan or anything) but I do see what they mean about Romo taking all the weight. Comes with the job in Dallas, I guess.
