Tony Romo entered Sunday’s game between the Cowboys and Eagles in the second quarter and completed three of four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown. Some will want to use this Romo touchdown pass as fuel for a QB controversy heading into the Cowboys’ first playoff game in two weeks. I, on the other hand, will use it to show that Romo has a future in some other team’s colors come the start of next season.
This is Romo’s first game action since his back injury during the preseason, and while everyone knew that Romo was going to play at least some in this meaningless game against the Eagles, not many expected him to be in for this short a time.
Mark Sanchez came in to replace Romo after a few series, for his first appearance of the season and first action since leaving the Eagles after last season. And it went down in typical Mark Sanchez fashion.
Regardless, Romo’s brief cameo showed that he still has something left in the tank for someone other than the Cowboys next season. And this will incite a faux “QB controversy” for sure because what else are Cowboys fans going to talk about for two weeks before their playoff game, but there really isn’t any, nor should there be.
But it is nice to see Tony Romo playing again. Some team not named the Cowboys might be happy to have him next season.
