NFL playoffs on the line for the Cowboys

Posted on: July 21, 2012 11:12 am

Cowboy fans need to pay close attention to what happens in Lake Tahoe this weekend. More than OTAs (Organized Team Activity), training camp, or pre-season games, this weekend’s 54 holes of golf by quarterback Tony Romo will present a clear picture of how the Cowboys will fare come the fall.

In his four years of participation, Tony has what looks, at first glance, like an impressive resume. One third place and three runner-up finishes are nice, but they’re also just more disconcerting evidence of what Cowboy fans have grown tired of; the idea that Tony just can’t get to the next level.

Now, to be fair, two of those four years the winner of the tournament was Rick Rhoden, so you can’t really hold that against Tony. After all, Rhoden is an eight time winner and a very accomplished golfer. Rather, it’s the other two that give pause. In 2010, it was former quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver who took home the title, followed by actor Jack Wagner last year. No disrespect intended to either Billy Joe, a three time winner himself, or Jack, a two time winner, but Cowboy fans have to be wondering if Tony is the man that can lead the franchise back to a Super Bowl victory if he can’t go head to head in the prime of his athletic life and beat a retired quarterback or an aging actor. When you watch Romo on the driving range or follow him around the course, it is quite apparent how much talent he has. He is an obvious favorite heading into the event every year because he’s that good…yet he hasn’t won it.

The guess here is that this will be the year, but, if it isn’t, don’t look for the Cowboys when the NFL playoffs start in January. They’ll be on the golf course.

NFL playoffs on the line for the Cowboys

Tony did well for my fantasy football team this year. In fact, I could see a scenario with me drafting him again next year.

He can't keep throwing 19 pic's so next year there's room to improve.

On the other hand; real NFL production is very different.

Not sure Tony is the QB to actually elevate us back to the playoffs.
