When prompted by the question of whether or not Tony Romo should be listed as the 12th best QB (as he was on NFL.com's Top 100 Players of 2014), Mr. Stephen A. Smith began rattling off all those he felt deserved to be ahead of him. When he listed all the 2013 rooks, Russ & Andrew, and the rushers, Cam & Kap, but did not use a breath on Bob, I was dumbfounded. I would rather have RGIII playing for my team any given Sunday than have Tony Romo... shoot I'd rather have RGIII on my bench than Tony "Pick City" Romo on the field - perhaps that argument doesn't make sense, but stay with me here.
in Romo's 4 playoff games (made the playoffs 3 times in 10 seasons), he threw for about 200 yards a game, 1 touchdown a game, and had 2 picks and 5 fumbles. In his entire football career, he has 546 rushing yards and 5 rushing touchdowns. Pretty good numbers!
In Griffin's rookie year, he had more rushing yards (815) and rushing touchdowns (7) than Romo has in his entire career - oh, and he missed a game. He also made the playoffs, and threw 2 TDs in one half of play before getting injured, so he has half as many playoff touchdowns as Tony does, in 1/8 of as many games... follow that logic?
Griffin hasn't hit his prime... Romo is an inconsistent interception machine who is at the bottom of his career.
Who would you rather have?
