3. He’s unreliable in the playoffs
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Romo is not a playoff quarterback and he tends to choke under pressure. This has been evidenced by just four years making the playoffs in his 10-year career and going 2-4 in postseason contests.
No one really knows why Romo is an ultimate chocker while looking so solid in regular season non-pressure games, but he seems to absolutely crumble when the pressure gets to him.
The veteran quarterback has some key pieces in place around him, but when he gets to the playoffs, his limit for wins seems to be one. His only two playoff wins ever came this past season and in 2009 before being knocked out abruptly in the next round.
Who knows, maybe this is the year Romo turns his career around in the postseason and proves all of us wrong, but for a guy who has been nothing short of mediocre when the games matter most, it’s hard to see him winning a ring and fulfilling a guarantee he made after winning a lifetime achievement award.
This may just be my opinion, but the Cowboys will need a new quarterback under center before they can win a Super Bowl. Romo is just not clutch enough.
