Todd Archer compares Tony Romo’s fast start with those of other recent phenoms, Kurt Warner and Tom Brady.
In his first five starts, Tony Romo has energized the Cowboys much as Kurt Warner and Tom Brady did their teams in St. Louis and New England. Those quarterbacks won Super Bowls in their first season as starters. Here’s how their first five starts compared with Romo’s:
Kurt Warner, St. Louis, 1999
Result: Won Super Bowl XXXIV
Stats: 1,428 yards, 15 TDs, 3 INTs
Tom Brady, New England, 2001
Result: Won Super Bowl XXXVI
Stats: 1,023 yards, 7 TDs, 4 INTs
Tony Romo, Dallas, 2006
Stats: 1,394 yards, 10 TDs, 2 INTs
The numbers are quite comparable, indeed. The Cowboys trail only the San Diego Chargers in points scored, and that’s with Drew Bledsoe at the helm the first five and a half games. Romo’s Cowboys have a chance to be something special, like Warner’s Rams and Brady’s Pats. There’s still a lot of football to be played this year, though, before that happens.
