Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman insist Tony Romo will be the next Dallas Cowboys quarterback to win a Super Bowl. Romo believes it, too. Doubts about his ability to lead the Cowboys to the Promised Land prompted Romo earlier this season to declare, “This team is going to win a Super Bowl at some point.
“Quarterbacks are judged by statistics and wins; they are defined by Super Bowls.But to win the Super Bowl involves getting there. To get there involves winning in the playoffs. To win in the playoffs involves winning meaningful regular-season games.And that brings us to the Cowboys’ winner-take-all game against the New York Giants tonight. Romo’s legacy starts now.”This is something of a playoff game, because if we don’t win, we don’t get in,” Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. “This is definitely a signature game for Tony.”
Romo should finish 2011 with his third 4,000-yard passing season and his second 30-touchdown season, but if the Cowboys don’t beat the Giants, no one will care, including Romo.”It’s about winning and losing, so that’s all it’s going to be about,” he said. Romo has more attempts (2,531), more completions (1,627), more yards (20,283), a better completion percentage (64.3) and more touchdowns (144) than any Cowboys quarterback after 76 starts.
