Tony Romo has been considered by many to be an excellent quarterback. Jimmy Kempski helps break it down on why he doesn’t even understand how Tony Romo could be considered an overrated Qb when he doesnt even believe he’s a good QB to begin with. A recent poll conducted by sports illustrated shows the most overrated player voted on by 180 current NFL players. According to this poll the players have ranked the two Jets quarterbacks, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, as the top two most overrated players in the NFL. Now coming in 3rd place is quite the surprise as Tony Romo was considered to be one of the better QB’s in the league by many of the so called “expert” analysts. Kempski states that he believe its all of the Cowboy fans that are throwing their arms up in praise about him and the rest of the media who considers them to be “Americas Team” promotes the Cowboys in every way possible. I like how Kempski breaks down a perfect way to describe Romo, he states that “To the casual fan, if you were to play word association with NFL QBs, the word most associated with Romo might be “choker.”  I see Romo through the same lens as a good QB but when the game is on the line he just can’t get the job done. A perfect example would be against the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs when the Cowboys finished the regular season at 13-3 in 2007. The Cowboys had the game within their grasps with the opportunity take the lead. All Romo had to do was hold the ball for the kicker and the kicker would have an easy chip shot that was almost guaranteed to go in. The one and only thing that can go wrong does, Romo gets the snap and botches the ball creating a failed attempt on the kick. The Seahawks end up winning the game and the Cowboys are sent home packing in the first round after such a great regular season. This is only the beginning to the blunders that Tony Romo always seems to find himself in. Eagle fans can be proud about one thing in this list is that Romo is ranked higher than Vick even though Vick comes in at number 4 on the list. In 2010 Vick had one of the greatest statistical games by a QB against the Washington Redskins where he threw for 333 yards and 4 touchdowns with only 8 incomplete passes all game. Too bad for Eagles fans that were shortly lived and now we find ourselves counting down the days till Vick gets the boot. Kempski goes on explaining that he doesn’t even think Romo is good enough to be considered overrated, but with the way Vick has been playing lately I’m sure most if not all of Eagles fans would gladly take Romo over the turnover machine Vick right now. At the end of his article he lists some other players that he feels should also get a mention on the most overrated list and has Dez Bryants name on there multiple times and I completely agree with him. Bryant was taken in the first round of the draft where the best players are taken and he has done absolutely nothing but cause trouble off the field and has done nothing on the field as well. He has had only a handful of good games but has had far more awful games.
