After another disappointing end to the Dallas Cowboys season, some began to wonder if Tony Romo’s days leading the team were numbered. Romo has been inconsistent time and time again when it comes to late season or playoff games. During Sunday night’s loss to the Redskins, Romo threw three interceptions, including one late in the game that sealed the victory for Washington.

Despite his poor play, head coach Jason Garrett said today that Romo has a bright future with the team.

“We have a great belief of Tony Romo as our quarterback,” Garrett said. “Tony has won a lot of big games for us, too, to get us to the point where we can play for the division in Week 17 in consecutive years. We all know that we want to take the next step, and Tony is going to be a big part of that going forward. You have to understand the whole body of work. You have to understand that winning is how we get evaluated. He’s done a lot of great things for this franchise. We’re excited about him being our quarterback.”

It might be time for the Cowboys to start planning for their future without Romo. Even if he is the team’s starting quarterback next season, he will be thirty-three years old next season. While quarterbacks like Manning and Brady can possibly play into their 40s, Romo most likely cannot.

The Cowboys should be grooming a quarterback to take over for Romo soon.

    Hey,

    A lot of people are wrong about Romos stats and what not. He was the third best QB in the whole NFL toward the end of this season. According to the NFL his stats are very similar to Troy Aikman, but he doesn’t have the best running back and wide receiver in the whole NFL like Troy Aikman did. He’s finally found a great connection with Dez Bryant who was had the 2nd most touchdowns of anyone in the NFL this season. Also this game against the Redskins Romo broke his ribs early on in this game and played through, he shouldn’t of I guess but thats that. Also Romo’s stats in “cold weather” games are not that good and it was a cold weather game. Our running back was out most of the season so we has almost no running game. Romo looked really good the last half of this season, if we we’re not missing half of our starting defense most of the season, things would be different for sure. We lost a few games by a few points those for sure would of been wins with our starting defense at least 75% healthy. I think this next year will be a good sign of things to come if our players can remain healthy.

    Also Romo being able to play into his 40′s has more to do with his training and his genetics than the fact that you have doubts in him. He could just as easily get better with age.
