If Tony Romo has trouble spotting the sun, it's because Troy Aikman's long shadow has blotted it out.
Breer: Disappointment in Big D
Romo has posted remarkable numbers for the Dallas Cowboys, but people in that town don't care about remarkable numbers.
Johnson argued that Romo "catches more undeserved abuse" than anyone in the NFL. Sounds about right. For a guy who tossed 31 touchdown passes to just 10 interceptions last season, Romo remains mischaracterized as a bumbler; a stopgap prone to gaffes on the national stage. Nonsense.
Romo's mistakes are well-documented, but they're also largely ancient relics from his early career.
Romo -- in another city -- would be hailed and given his due. In Dallas, the game is different.
