Romo Under Center Brings Stability To QB Position

Name: Tony Romo
Position: Quarterback
Height/Weight: 6-2, 224
Experience: Six years
College: Eastern Illinois
Key stat: 81 touchdown passes in his first three seasons actually playing quarterback in the NFL (41 games, 39 starts), which is rather remarkable if you consider that's the best three-year total in Cowboys history despite two of their franchise quarterbacks now resting in Canton, Ohio. Don Meredith's best three-year total was 62 touchdown passes (1965-67); Roger Staubach's was 70 (1977-79); Danny White's was 67 (1981-83, with '82 the strike-shortened season); and Troy Aikman's was 51 (1992-94). Romo surpassed them in his first three seasons to actually play quarterback in games.
