Tony Romo May Not Be NFL MVP, But He Has Become An Elite Quarterback

Jordan Schultz

Tony Romo is not going to win the NFL MVP this season, that much is clear. There are too many other great quarterbacks having monstrous seasons: Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck, to name a few. And his teammate in the Dallas Cowboys backfield, running back DeMarco Murray, is firmly in the conversation as well. But at 34 years young, Romo, fresh off his second serious back surgery, is enjoying the best season of his illustrious (if highly criticized) career, and he has most definitely earned the right to be at least in the conversation about MVPs and elite quarterbacks.

Jordan Schultz

On the heels of the most impressive win of the Jason Garrett era and of this NFL season, the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys sit tied atop the NFC East after out-Seahawking the Seattle Seahawks 30-23 Sunday. For a franchise that has been mired in mediocrity (four games over .500 during the last 16 seasons), it was as much a statement to itself as it was to the rest of the league. This comes after falling behind 10-0 to the defending champs, a team that had won 17 of its previous 18 home games. And yet, all is not perfect with Dallas -- far from it actually.
