Tony Romo has been the Dallas Cowboys best quarterback since the days of Troy Aikman. He finally led them to the postseason for the third time in his illustrious career. In 2014, Romo threw 3,705 yards, 34 touchdown passes, and only 9 interceptions. Statistically, 2014 was Romo’s best season as a Dallas Cowboy.
Even though the Cowboys missed the playoffs, by losing the last game of the season three consecutive times, you have to be impressed by Romo’s ability to get them there. A lot of teams that come off of an 8-8 record fail to live up to expectations the following season. Romo is also one of the leagues toughest players.
He has returned on numerous occasions from injuries that a typical player would not recover from. One of the biggest highlights of Tony Romo’s career came against the Washington Redskins in 2013. In the fifteenth game of the season against the Washington Redskins, the Cowboys were losing in the fourth quarter and needed to get this win to keep their playoff hopes alive, he led the Cowboys to a touchdown drive with 1:08 remaining in a 24-23 victory over their hated rival.
Romo played in that contest with a herniated disk injury which would eventually sideline him for the remainder of the 2013 season. Tony Romo’s will to lead the Cowboys to victory in spite of season ending injuries are what he will be remembered the most about him once he has hanged up his cleats for good.
