Joe Theismann Says Tony Romo Just Isn’t Very Good
The Dallas Cowboys are catching heat from all angles after an embarrassing Monday night loss at home to the Bears.
It gets really bad when former Washington Redskins start to pile on as well.
According to the Dallas Morning News, former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann was on Brady & Lang on Sportsnet 590 The Fan Tuesday when he blasted Romo and owner Jerry Jones.
“Soon or later we have to come to the realization that Tony isn’t a very good quarterback.”
“He throws interceptions that (make) you shake your head. If it’s all the wide receivers’ fault then maybe he should get some new wide receivers, or they need to come up with some new route combinations that guys can understand.”
“What hit me last night is, Tony isn’t really that good,” Theismann said. “Just because he wears a star on his helmet — we all think that people who are Dallas Cowboys, ‘ooh they’re wonderful and ooh they’re terrific, ooh they’re the next Roger Staubach’ or whatever the heck they want to say. They’re full of bologna.
“Tony makes bad decisions with the football. And I’ll tell you something else; he missed two wide open touchdowns last night that nobody’s talking about. Forget about the five interceptions; he misses Miles Austin and Dez Bryant with easy touchdown throws, and he airmails the ball over their heads.
“You can say, ‘well, everybody has a bad game.’ Tony has too many bad games. Tony Romo is not a very good quarterback. Somebody has to say it so I just did. He should be a lot better, or the reputation he’s carried should have him play a lot better.”
Theismann also went in on Jones as well.
“It took him five years too long to change the offensive line, which isn’t very good. It took him three years too long to change his secondary. He’ll do the same thing again. This is what happens when you’re not a football guy.
“You have to ask yourself, ‘is the owner holding back this football team with football decisions?’ And I think yes.
“I think you have a couple issues in Dallas. Number one, I think you have a team, they think they’re pretty good. They’re not. Number two, their quarterback thinks he’s pretty good. He’s really not. Number three, their owner is their general manager and he doesn’t make good decisions from a personnel standpoint.”
If it wasn’t for the fact that he’s a former Redskin, and that Joe says ridiculous things all the time, I might take him seriously.
Tony Romo will be fine. Everybody has bad games.
Romo threw 4 in one game last year, and threw 6 more the entire season.
