2012 Pros and Cons

(+) If DeMarco Murray can live up to expectations, Romo will finally have a legit running game to open things up for the passing game


(+) Dez Bryant and Miles Austin could be the best one/two punch in the league. They haven't proven it thus far, but they are talented enough and it could happen this year


(+) Believe it or not, Romo actually has the second-best career Passer Rating in the history of the NFL (Aaron Rodgers – 104.1; Tony Romo – 96.9; Steve Young – 96.8; Tom Brady – 96.4)


(+) Since Romo became a starter in 2006, the Cowboys have consistently passed the ball more than they have run it


(+) Romo has thrown for two or more TDs in 25 of his 32 home games since 2007


(+) His latest injury aside, Romo is one of the most athletic QBs in the game


(+) As an ex-NFL QB, head coach Jason Garrett knows how to maximize Romo's fantasy potential


(+) Plays on one of the biggest stages in American sports


(+) Jason Witten is still one of the best security blankets in the league


(–) He could be a bit injury prone as he’s missed 13 games and was knocked out of two others early over the past four seasons


(–) The Cowboys offensive line isn’t what it used to be


(–) How many times can we give this offense the benefit of the doubt? We don't blame Romo, but it hasn't seemed to really click yet

2009 Review

tony romo collage


Let's get real here. Not many people outside of Dallas like the Cowboys and thus, not many people like Tony Romo. His arrogant style might not be all that enjoyable outside the city-lines, but as he proved last season, his numbers on your fantasy team sure are. In order to succeed in fantasy football, you gotta push the heart aside and act with your head. For all of his critics, both on and off the field, Romo’s 2009 numbers should do a nice job of forcing them think twice about bashing him again.  It might not have been the most consistent season, but not everyone can be a Troy Aikman. Speaking of Aikman, Romo set a Cowboys franchise record with 4,483 passing yards last year. Just sayin'.


One of the most publicized gripes about his game was that he fails in crunch-time, a critique to which Romo finally responded this year.  With three games left to go and the Cowboys on the outside looking in, Romo led his team to three straight wins and not only made the playoffs at 11-5, but secured an NFC East title in the process.  In addition, one of those games took down the then-undefeated Saints in New Orleans, while the final game of the year turned out to be a 24-0 drubbing of the then-division leading Eagles.

~ Set career bests in completions (347), attempts (550), yards (4,483), INTs (9), yards/game (280.2), and QB Rating (97.6)

2010 Fantasy Outlook







Is Tony Romo a Top-10 place holder? Okay, unfair question. How bout this one. Is Romo a Top-5 fantasy QB?  More realistic, but still, not really. We’d be extremely hard-pressed to put his name inside that realm.  However, he is one of the few QBs in the league who can surprise and end up amongst that group during any given year.  Even though he’s not the most consistent guy in the league, he’ll always get his chances as Jason Garrett, the Cowboys offensive coordinator, can’t wait to turn to the passing game no matter what the score or situation.  The talented players around him and his gunslingers mentality provide him with the potential to put up big numbers in 2010, and there’s no doubt he is a starting fantasy QB in the league.


~ The offensive line is solid and will remain as such for another year in 2010


~ Miles Austin will start from the get-go and is one of the best young playmakers in the game


~ Jason Witten had an off season and will most certainly be better


~ Is this the year that Roy Williams’s talent finally comes out to play, or does Dez Bryant (aka Randy Moss' brother) end up taking over the WR2 role?


~ The Cowboys are sure to use Felix Jones out of the backfield more this year, which only adds to Romo’s possibilities

Contract

Romo enters the 3rd year of that monster $67.4 million dollar contract extension he signed back in October of ‘07.  Here is how it pays out:


2010 - $8.5 million


2011 - $9 million


2012 - $9 million


2013 - $11.5 million


2014 - Free Agent


He is plenty motivated to continue to produce.  His contract is a non-issue.

Romo knows Women

A lot has changed since 2008 when Romo missed three games, played miserably, still produced 26 TDs and almost 3500 yards, and dated Jessica Simpson. His critics will assert that he exercised poor judgment going on a vacation with Simpson and the twins the week before a playoff game a couple of years ago, but we can’t seem to find fault in that maneuver. Last year, he proved he could take the league, his team, and the position he plays more seriously. Now he just needs another WAG by his side and he'd be set. We really have no concerns about that though, given the fact that his resume also includes Carrie Underwood. Just hope he takes the next blonde bombshell to Mexico motor-boating with her built-in floatation device in the offseason.

The T.O. days

For those of you who feel nostalgic and want to relive the T.O.-Tony Romo days:


Then...








As is widely known, Romo did just fine without T.O. last year. He threw for 1000 more yards (albiet in 3 more games) and had the same amount of TDs that should only increase with Dez Bryant on the squad now. His completion percentage increased and his interceptions went down. There ain't no T.O. fallout here.

Injury Report

Green

Romo missed games for the first time in his career in 2008, though not enough to warrant a yellow light at this point.

Romo Cleared for Practice



Pyro's take: Cowboys medical staff has told Tony that his back is Greeaaaaat! Don't expect to see him starting this week as Dak continues to roll through the NFL, but if given the opportunity to retain the Cowboys starting QB expect more Ezekiel Elliot touches to turn to Dez Bryant targets. With the Cowboys efficient run game don't expect Zeke to see reduced production. That being said, you need to stash Alf, don't forget about the Molly & Weed use at OSU, along with the preseason dispensary mishap and domestic violence accusation still looming over the NFL.

Bring on DAK TO DEZ

With Romo facing 6 to 10 weeks of recovery, best case is that he's back after Cowboys' bye, which would mean he'll miss the first 6 games.

Pyro's take: With Romo facing 6 to 10 weeks of recovery, best case is that he's back after Cowboys' bye, which would mean he'll miss the first 6 games.

Fantasy Goo: Duh, who did not see this coming? Romo is toast. Stick a fork in him. Dak Prescott is now the man. Dak to Dez!!! Let's hope this kid can keep the magic going. Drafting Dak early would be reckless although sometimes you have to just say "F-It". If you can get Dak in round 10 or so he might hold value based on his preseason but, the real season is much more difficult on rookie quarterbacks. When Romo played last year he was not good so, as crazy as this sounds, Dak MIGHT be an upgrade. If you have a deep roster you might want to make him your QB2. I feel uneasy drafting Dez in round 1 or early 2.

Did someone just tackle my Great Grandfather?

Tony Romo says he feels fine, there's no need for an X-ray or MRI on his back and stressed the hit that knocked him out of Thursday's game is not a concern going forward.

Pyro's take: Tony Romo says he feels fine, there's no need for an X-ray or MRI on his back and stressed the hit that knocked him out of Thursday's game is not a concern going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Not a concern my ass. Which looked worse, Tony Romo running or Tony Romo looking like someone from the old-folks home as he tried to slide? I keep telling people Tony Romo will not last the season. If Tony Romo goes out you will have to hope Dak Prescott is the real deal if you own Dez Bryant. Go check Tony Romo’s stats from last year from when he played and you will see that his stats were not good. He is at the tail end of his career and gets hurt more often than he throws touchdowns these days. Do not draft Tony Romo this year. I beg and warn you. I would stay away from Dez but, Dak has looked phenomenal. Dak to Dez could end up taking place sooner than later. Some of the Cowboys cheerleaders have great tits.

Dak Prescott Wants To Be Cowboys Starting Quarterback

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott

Pyro's take: Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott spoke to the media on Monday regarding his personal expectations for the upcoming season and his career following a pair of brilliant preseason performances that garnered the rookie a vast amount of hype thus far in his short tenure in the NFL. "My mindset is I want to be a starter for this organization one day, and a starter in this league for a long time," Prescott said via the Dallas Morning News. "I'm going to continue to push myself and make myself the best as I can each and every day."

Fantasy Goo: Prescott is entering his rookie season as the favorite to win the No. 2 quarterback job in Dallas behind Tony Romo. Prescott dazzled during his first two NFL contests, albeit, they were preseason games, but impressed enough to likely emerge as the backup signal caller of the Cowboys. Due to Romo's extensive injury history, Prescott is garnering extra attention as the Cowboys tend to implode without their veteran under center. Nevertheless, Prescott is giving the team and fans alike a glimmer of hope in the event that Romo is sidelined once again in 2016.

“I don’t think my collarbone is going to be anything that takes you out every year that you play football”

IRVING, Texas – The questions about Tony Romo’s health aren’t going to go away, but the Cowboys’ veteran quarterback surely must be tired of answering them by now.

Pyro's take: IRVING, Texas – The questions about Tony Romo’s health aren’t going to go away, but the Cowboys’ veteran quarterback surely must be tired of answering them by now.

“I understand where I’m at in my career. I also understand that – I was hurt and banged up last year, but it’s a collarbone,” he said. “I don’t think my collarbone is going to be anything that takes you out every year that you play football.”

The collarbone is the latest of several ailments that prompt questions about Romo’s longevity. He broke it for the second time in September, after first suffering the injury in 2010. He returned from that after a nine-week absence, only to break it again on Thanksgiving.

For all the consternation about that problem, though, Romo doesn’t see it as a recurring issue. He did go five years between injuries, and he had surgery to strengthen the bone in March. On top of that, he’s throwing and participating fully in the Cowboys’ off-season program.

Fantasy Goo: Fantasy football buyers beware. Romo is saying the right things but his body has been showing the reality. Being a Cowboys fan I would love to see Dez catch 16 touchdowns again like he did in 2014. However, we all saw what happened last year. It was ugly. For fantasy purposes Tony Romo is one of the hardest quarterbacks to rank this season. A healthy dominant Romo can easily throw 30 plus touchdowns. An ass kicking running game could lead Romo down the field to many red zone opportunities and we all love those. When Dallas gets inside of the 20 will they keep pounding with Elliott, McFadden and Morris?

Dallas MUST keep Tony Romo healthy for a Playoff run so, they will not put him in jeopardy by forcing him to sling it for 300 yard games. Three broken collarbones… do I hear four?

Tony Romo (broken collarbone) will not have surgery for at least a month.

TR

Pyro's take: Romo fractured his left clavicle on two separate occasions in a span of 10 weeks, limiting him to four games last season. He has broken the collarbone three times since the 2010 season. He said at a promotional event last month that "we're going to do the things that'll probably allow us to make sure that doesn't happen again.''

Jerry Jones stated that the Cowboys do not "have to" draft a quarterback this year.

JJ

Pyro's take: "There are many options," Jones said. "There's free agency ... We have to (draft a QB) to do what? We have to win a Super Bowl next year? Do we have to compete for a Super Bowl in the future? Do you have to have it in place after this draft? There's no have-to here, in my mind, because we have the luxury of having Romo here for three, four, five more years."

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein rates quarterback as Dallas' biggest need with Romo moving past the midway point of his 30s and coming off of injury. Earlier on Wednesday, Pro Football Hall of Famer Troy Aikman told NFL HQ that Romo's durability "certainly is a concern."

Tony Romo said he may have a plate inserted to strengthen his broken left collarbone.

TR

Pyro's take: "We have a few ideas of what we can do with the collarbone," said Romo, a guest on Norm Hitzges' Norm-a-thon. "There are a few plans. We're going to pick out the CT scan and some of the other stuff and see how much calcification has taken and whether it's gotten to a point where we feel like it's really strong and it will be able to handle some of the normal hits you take.
"But we're going to have a good plan. If we have to put a plate in there, something small, we'll do that. That should ensure that that doesn't happen, or the percentage of that goes way, way down.
"From my perspective, I feel very strongly about the way that I'm going to be able to play going forward."

Jerry Jones expects Tony Romo to remain the team's starter 4-5 more years.

TR

Pyro's take: "I think if you look at his playing time, if you look at the years he has actually played, he started late," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan's K&C Masterpiece show [KRLD-FM]. "He really has excellent skill relative to where his skill set began, what his skill set is. He's got the relative skills. More important to anything, from a mental standpoint, and from the things that also mean so much at quarterback, he's at the top of the list. So I think four to five years."

"This is not a damn debate, guys," Jones said. "This is not a debate we're having here. Do you know that I don't know if he's got four or five years, you asked me my opinion. And I can give you all the reasons why, the back, or I can give you clavicle, or I can give you any other type of injuries that are there.

"But you're asking me what I think and I think we've got outstanding quarterback ahead of us for the next four or five years. That's not a downer. Will we be looking to develop and get talent behind Romo? Absolutely."

Cowboys are holding off on placing Tony Romo (collarbone) on injured reserve in case they make a run at the NFC East title.

TR

Pyro's take: "It's seven or eight fractures versus one," Jones said, referring to the initial break in Week 2. "Is that a difference? Some say no and some say yes, to be honest with you. And I'm not a doctor."

Depending on how the Cowboys fare on Monday against the Washington Redskins could make the decision easier. A loss would not eliminate the Cowboys officially but would for all practical purposes keep them out of the postseason. A win would keep them in the race for at least another week.--Todd Archer

Romo Breaks Collar Bone

Romo Breaks Clavicle

Pyro's take: Say it ain't so Mr. Romo! But the rash of injuries continues to plague the Cowboys. Dez looks like he will be out longer than previously thought and now Romo suffers a broken clavicle in Week #2 againts the Eagles.

May Play

Even though Tony Romo has two transverse process fractures, he may just still play on Sunday. Jerry Jones commented on the situation "I'm anticipating him playing, have no reason to think that he won't, and this will be a nice little practice session for him out there today," Jones said. "But my expectations are for him to play."

Tony Romo was less optimistic: "We'll see. I think we'll take it day by day and see what happens as we move closer. It's improving each day. We did some things today that were a positive. If it keeps going in that direction, we'll have a good chance."

Romo has practiced and head coach Jason Garrett mentioned that: "He'll hopefully be able to do what we want him to do on a Thursday practice," Garrett said before practice, "and as the week goes on he'll feel good with the work he's gotten and he'll be able to play in the game. But we'll just take it day-by-day."

Pyro's take: This is going to come down to how he feels on Sunday. It will be a game-time decision, but with the bye-week on the horizon, I say they shut him down.

Not Looking Good

At the London Play 60 event Tony Romo looked pretty sore, according to Brandon George, "Tony Romo still wasn't moving great at NFL Play 60 event in London. Stood with stiff back most of time. Walk-thru was more of stand-thru."

Pyro's take: I dont believe Tony Romo is going to play this week, and why should he with a bye week coming-up. The last thing the Cowboys want to do, is risk the injury even further, expect Brandon Weeden to start in his place.

11/05/14, 08:29 PM CST by Vaaal-verde

Doubtful

NFL writer Charean Williams has stated via twitter that "Tony Romo is not at practice. I asked Scott Linehan Thurs if he ever had a QB play Sun after missing practice all wk. "It's rare," he said."

Pyro's take: By this it looks as though Brandon Weeden will return as quarterback for the Cowboys. Its time maybe to start putting Weeden on your waiver wire radar, as the Cowboys are loaded with weapons, and have one of the best offensive lines in football.

Romo Back

Ed Werder has stated via his twitter that "Cowboys seem confident Tony Romo suffered muscle contusion near site of 2 back surgeries. Pain tolerance and functional ability big now"

Pyro's take: Romo went out for part of the Monday night game against the Washington Redskins but did return. Keep an eye on him as they don't have a bye until week 11.

Still Sore

Tony Romo is still sore from the Seattle game as he is dealing with ankle and rib injuries. Romo may miss Thursday as well. Head coach Jason Garrett stated that Romo “seemed a little sore” as he participated in Wednesday’s morning walk-through. “I think he’s going to be OK,” Garrett added.

Romo took a vicious shot to his ribs as he leaped in the air to make a pass, and got rail-roaded by line backer Bobby Wagner. Tony Romo stayed on the field for a bit, then limped off in obvious pain. A little rib thing and the ankle,” Romo said Sunday after the game. “We’ll see. I’ve got to go through all of the junk [Monday] and figure that out. “It has nothing to do with the back, though. All of this is gravy.”

Pyro's take: Tony Romo should still play this week, even if he will miss more than expected practice time. Keep him in your lineup or use him as you normally would.

Romo having troubles

Tony Romo has not settled in this year. His passes seem to be overthrown or underthrown, his normal short completion routes to Jason Witten hasn't been there either. There can be many reasons why he hasn't looked himself, the most telling is that through two weeks, he has a passer rating of 75.1, tied for 30th place in the league. Another sign is that the $108 million dollar quarterback is handing the ball off 29 times a game. This is an offense that is built to pass, but instead chose to run?



Pyro's take: Until it seems that Tony Romo can get his playing ability back, which may be tough considering he is 34, the Cowboys will be a running team.

Romo makes mistakes

Tony Romo had a hard time looking better than any other quarterback on the team, as the Dallas Cowboys looked second rate against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Romo finished the day with a 60.8 quarterback rating, including three interceptions. One, at the goal-line on first down.

Head coach Jason Garrett though backed-up his starting quarterback by stating: “Tony, like everyone else in this room and on the football field yesterday, is human,” Garrett said. “He made some decisions over the course of the game that he’d like to have back. That happens every week in the National Football League to every quarterback. You continue to try and learn and continue to try and grow from the situations you’re in.”

Pyro's take: Tony Romo should be just fine. Ya, he stunk it up yesterday, but all quarterbacks, and all people stink it up here and there. He is still the guy you drafted, and Sunday's performance should not change your mind on when to use him.

He will be facing the Baltimore Ravens, and the Cowboys have wanted him to ease back into the fold, as he missed the opening pre-season game. Tony Romo said he didnt believe in missing pre-season. "I think you have to play in the preseason," Romo said. "Obviously, some people can't, but I do know from my perspective, this game is not something where you can show up and think that you can do it. I think it's been proven far too many times that if you take too long of a break or don't get reps under you that you will be exposed in certain areas."

When Romo got injured against Washington, in late December,which required surgery, was his second procedure on Romo's back in an eight-month span. He had a cyst removed before the start of offseason practices last year and didn't do any significant work until training camp.

Pyro's take: Dallas Cowboys need Tony Romo to be at his best, and if he had any set-backs they would not have him play in the pre-season, no matter how much Romo wanted to be out there. The Ravens have an adequate defense, so this will be a solid test for him. Watch and see how he responds.
