New York Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty told ESPN’s SportsNation, (via the Dallas Morning News) that the Dallas Cowboys haven’t been able to have as much success as the Giants because quarterback Tony Romo simply hasn’t performed well during crunch time.
“Romo’s a tremendous quarterback, statistically he’s a top five quarterback, that’s undeniable,” Canty said. “At the end of the day, in the clutch situations, he hasn’t performed as well as you would like him to. I think ultimately, that’s been the difference between their franchise and the Giants ability to be successful.”
Canty was asked if he feels as if he can force Romo into making some mistakes.
“Absolutely. Absolutely,” Canty responded. “Obviously, when you put pressure on any quarterback you can cause mistakes. I think Romo has been prone to make mistakes in the clutch situations and his team has not been able to be successful because of it.”
I completely agree with Canty’s assessment of Romo, he puts up great numbers but seems to crumble when the game is on the line.
