Tony Romo

We can’t wait to see this one.

Tony Romo was loved or hated, though not because he was a polarizing personality but because he was a perceived choke artist in the playoffs.  While Romo did not have a great playoff record (2-4) but Romo (as of this writing anyway) he is the career leader in Quarterback Rating in the fourth quarter and in the month of December.  Basically, we are saying that he had a lot of great performances when it counted! 

Tony Romo Retires

This was a little unexpected!

Today, we woke up to a major retirement in the National Football League, as Quarterback Tony Romo is calling it a career and joining the CBS broadcasting team.  It was expected that Romo would continue his career and possibly sign with either the Denver Broncos or the Houston Texans and continue his playing career but this move certainly ends that.

Romo lost his starting Quarterback job due to injury to Dak Prescott, but had a very good career in the NFL, playing all of his fourteen seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.  Undrafted out of Eastern Illinois, Dallas signed him as a Free Agent in 2003 and through hard work would win the starting job from Drew Bledsoe midway through the ’06 season, where he would finish up so good that he would be named to his first of what would be four Pro Bowls. 

While he was not able to take the Cowboys to the Super Bowl, Romo was considered one of the better QBs in the league for over a decade and finihes his career with 34,183 Passing Yards with 248 Touchdown Passes.  Romo’s best season statistically was 2014, where he would lead the NFL in Passer Rating and was 97 Yards short of 5,000 for the season. 

This is a good career, but one that may not be good enough to get into him into the Pro Football Hall of Fame it should warrant him a spot on our Notinhalloffame.com List for Hall of Fame consideration.  He will be eligible for the Hall in 2022.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Tony Romo for an excellent career and wish him the best in his new role alongside Jim Nantz at CBS.
