Comparing Romo's stats to the best Cowboys QBs in context of the league at the time


Yakuza Rich has a pretty interesting post at his blog. In order to put Romo's record breaking season in context in relation to how the league has changed and become more pass oriented over the years, he looks at QB stats (YPA, Comp%, QB rating) of the top 5 Cowboys QBs (Meredith, Staubach, White, Aikman, Romo) in their best years and best two back-to-back years, and how they compared to the rest of the league. Atlhough Romo had a huge year and broke their overall records, in all but one case he actually was #4 or #5 compared to the other great Cowboys QBs and how far above average they were in the league during their best years. One thing that clearly stands out is that The Dodger had a truly monster year in '71. With another year under Romo's belt and the same receiving corps as last year, with T.O. still playing at a very high level and more experience across the board behind him, combined with the versatility of Felix and Martellus to contribute in the passing game, plus the upgraded defense that will likely give the offense more time of possession, it will be very exciting to see how he compares this year. His best years are still in front of him!
