The New York Giants are once again playing in the Super Bowl, while their division rival, the Dallas Cowboys, sits on the sidelines. Dallas once again failed to live up to expectations as they missed the playoffs, but what is the big difference between the two teams?
If you ask Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, the big difference between the Giants and Cowboys is one player — Eli Manning. Ouch. How does that make Tony Romo feel?
Manning has proved himself to be an elite quarterback in the league, while Romo has struggled to ever take the Cowboys to the next level. Both quarterbacks are 31-years-old, but there is only one that you would trust in crunch time. Could this mean the Cowboys will start looking for new options at quarterback?
Jones did go on to give Romo some praise, but it was already too late. When you say that your division rivals quarterback has a big edge over the one who is supposed to lead your franchise, you show a complete lack of trust and belief in the man you have under center.
Dallas could make a move by drafting a quarterback in the middle rounds of this draft and groom him, while they give Romo one final chance to lead the team. One thing is for certain though, the team needs a trustworthy quarterback. There is too much talent to have held back by one guy who can’t get it done in the clutch.
There is no question that Manning is superior to Romo and Jones finally has admitted that publicly. It can’t sit well with Cowboys fans to know that their owner has so little faith in Romo. It’s time to move on, folks. You sure won’t see Jerry Jones crying at a press conference after some Romo criticism saying, “That’s my quarterback.”
