Chris Canty says Tony Romo’s play in the clutch makes Giants better than Cowboys

The Giants have been a better team than the Cowboys over the past several years. It’s that simple. New York has won two Super Bowls in the past four years. Dallas has only won one playoff game during that span. There are a number of reasons why the G-Men have had more success than the Cowboys in recent history, but Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty believes Tony Romo is the primary reason.

“Romo’s a tremendous quarterback, statistically he’s a top five quarterback, that’s undeniable,” Canty said Tuesday on ESPN’s SportsNation according to the Dallas Morning News. “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.

“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.”

Based on some of his recent comments, Brett Favre would probably disagree with Canty’s assessment and argue that the Cowboys failures have not been all Romo’s fault. While Romo has made some poor decisions in crucial situations, we’re talking about the span of several seasons and several meetings between the NFC East division rivals. Romo hasn’t done enough to help the Cowboys be successful, but they have made plenty of bonehead mistakes as a team and found ways to lose. Sometimes one team is just simply better than another.

    what a idiot!

    There is some truth to what he says, but I would add that the
    perception of Romo not being completely focused of football as much as he
    should be seems to propagate throughout the team. He is constantly in the
    headlines trying to be a semi-pro golfer, dating some new startlet, on trips
    to Cancun, and is overall way to laid back.
    All of this is magnified since he is following a Cowboy hero in Troy Aikman
    who’s intensity and commitment could never be questioned. Romo is not a leader and will never be a good one as long as he is so busy running around playing grab-ass. Get in the video room! Find the weight room! Fix your crazy throws! Act like you care man!

    Well, pick a quaterback you think could a superbowl for the Cowboys. Eli Manning?  You forget who Really runs the Cowboys Football Operations. I take Tony over alot of quaterbacks. Eli would not be a superbowl winner if he would have played for the Cowboys.

  • Scott Boyle

    You have no clue what you are talking about little Steve. He has been married for a few years now and has a son. The reason is the Defense, it has nothing to do with Romo. Every QB makes bone head plays, it’s whether the rest of the team can help you out or not. The rest of the team has been questionable while Romo continues to rack up stats. The guy has the talent but he needs a little help.

  • Scott Boyle

     Agreed! Couldn’t have said it better myself. Eli and Romo are very close as fas as talent. The Giants have had a MUCH better defense the last 5 years. Defense wins Super Bowls. Offense helps.

    Cowboys Shmowboys… who gives a flyin’ jump jybin’ squat about the cowboys except for anyone for Texas. Ya got 6 Superbowl titles down there, what the hell you crying about?? You think you’re going to win it every year??? Get a grip. And to top it off y’all have the arrogance to self proclaim yourselves as “America’s Team”. That’s as lame as it gets. If any teams in professional sports has the right to call them selves Americas team it would have to be the New York Yankees who have not 6 but 27 World Championship titles. I never heard anyone from that organization self proclaim themselves as anything other than ball players and professionals. Professionals don’t keep whining about it when they lose, they just go and do the work it takes to fix it. Take a lesson from the REAL America’s team… shut up, do the work, and play the game.

    It’s about time someone has enough football knowledge to see that Tony Romo is not a clutch player; in fact he is a major choker. All anyone needs to remember is the 2006 playoffs and the miffed hold on a game winning field goal attempt against the Seahawks when he bobbled the snap and the Cowboys lost the game What holder puts that kind of pressure on themselves except a choke artist? Dallas will never be a Super Bowl team again until they address their situation at quaterback and dump Romo.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/GTF2YOVNK3W5BDPAGVPSLOFLT4 Angelo Williams

    What’s even more shocking is that Jerry Jones does not see that Tony Romo is not going to get it done. Obviously Jones is more of a business guy than a football guy. Americas team is no more. It went out the door with Aikman, Irvin, Smith, Darren Woodson, Erik Williams, Nate Newton and others.

    How many quarterbacks have… HAVE to score 30 to win?  Not Eli he has a defense, not the rapist he has a defense.  Compare apples to apples Cowboys defense suxes! Whens the last time you saw a Cowboy reciever dive for a ball?

    Miles Austin against the Niner’s.He got a T-Shirt deal off that catch, do your homework before you make those kind of statements, oh yeah they won the game and the QB in question had a punctured lung. Winning is a team effort not just one players responsibility. Lebron can atest to that. One more thing, watch out for the return of the new DOOMSDAY D.

    Your right about working hard, that is what it takes. The Cowboys only have 5 SB Titles. They have been to the dance 8 times. We as True fans of our team believe they can win every year. You should understand that when your team has the most titles in MLB history. See how not knowing your facts only draws the attention to correct your lack of NFL knowledge, sad. Do us a favor stick to the Yankees.

    The ‘America’s Team’ motto got started back in the mid-70’s, when Roger Staubach was not choking, but winning tough playoff games, on the road, against outstanding teams. That’s when the Cowboys became ‘The Cowboys.’

    to your point defense doesn’t matter, patriots made it to the super bowl last year with the worst defense in the league. any questions??????? romo sucks

    2nd, i am a die hard cowboys fan & i believe in Romo.. & have pretty much lost hope the last couple of years.. But i think this is the year.. COWBOYS go to superbowl!!!  If romo has a less then great year i think its time to cut ties..  & defense is our problem, thats why i feel better about this year with claiborne & carr in the secondary.. & we still have best defensive lineman in the nfl in in WARE!!!

    Romo does seem too distracted. Aikman was great as long as he had the machine to work with, then he seemed to lose interest in playing. Now, Staubach was the guy who always wanted to win, even if his entire team seemed to be phoning in their performances.

    What an idiot. Did they win? Guess who won? The team with the better defense you damn clown shoes. Oh wait when the Ravens won their Superbowl who was the QB? Exactly. Now stop running around every board talking about America’s Team and focus on yours.

    I understand your still mad you found out your mommy and daddy are really brother and sister. It’s ok let the anger out child!!!!!

    The reason the Giants have won the superbowl is cuz they play as a TEAM!!! The cowboys dont even know what play they are on. Eli is a smart player, Romo simply blowes ever chances they get. As far defense if desense wins superbowls then the 49ers should have went all the way. They were the #1 last year,If you dont play as a team you dont go far!!

    IF U KNOW FOOTBALL WELL  THEN WE ALL KNOW THAT THE COWBYS USE TO BE THE GREATEST TEAM IN THE NATION..SO LETS STEP BACK AND THINK HOW MUCH PRESSURE IT IS ACTUALLY ON THIS TEAM..YES I DO AGREE WITH MOST OF THESE COMMENTS ABOUT ROMO NOT BEING THE PLAYER EVERYBODY EXPECTED HIM TO BE, AS FOR THE DEFENSE STILL AGGRESSIVE SINCE BACK IN THE DAY OF THE 90’S..THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE ..COWBOYS SECONDARY IS THE WORST IN FOOTBALL, AS ELI MANNING WOULD SAY JUST GO LONG AND THE COWBOYS MANAGED TO FAIL 68% OF DEEP THROWN PASSES.. AS FOR THE OFFENSE TONY ROMO COMPLETES 64% OF DEEP THROWN PASSES THAT ARE CATCHES..SO AT THE END OF THE DAY IT TAKES HE TEAM TO BELIEVE.

     The Dallas Cowboys have 6 Super Bowl titles?  Staubach beat the “Orange Crush” and he beat the “No Name Defense” in the 1970’s.  Troy Aikman beat the “K-Gun Fun and Shoot” in back to back Super Bowls, and then he dismantled what was left of the “Cast Iron Curtain” 2 years later.  Which quarterback picked up the 6th championship for America’s Team?  I am drawing a blank here;  remind me so I do not have to waste time using “Bing.”

    I did like the pre-Clemens Yanks of Jeter, O’Neil, Martinez, and ‘Boomer’ Wells, but they killed it for me when they traded for Clemens.

    Bob Costas and George Will were talking baseball on TV a few years back. Will asked Costas, “Name for me one die-hard Yankee fan with good character?”

    Costas sat there silent for a few moments as valuable network airtime ticked away. Finally, Will spoke up and said,”Your silence speaks volumes.”

    Will’s overall point was that all that winning doesn’t present a real picture of life to the average fan. All that winning corrupts the soul for Joe Six-pack.

    5 titles or 6 in Dallas who cares??? Like I said, nobody gives a squat except for anyone from Texas anyway. You got more than most teams out there in the NFL. It still isn’t even close to the amount of championships the Yankees have won. The point was, the cowboys need to quit whining about their recent losing and go DO THE WORK it takes to fix it. Otherwise shut the hell up because nobody wants to hear it. The cry baby factor is up on 10 down there in Dallas and you have how many titles?? Whatever… I’ll say it again, Shut up do the work and play the game. That’s what REAL professionals do and that’s what the REAL America’s team does. That’s why they have 27 world championships…Talk is cheap.

    Have to correct you on a few points, he was married on May 28, 2011, not a few years ago, wiki is your friend. He has nothing to do with the Defense, except for the fact that the offense constantly goes 3 and out and the D plays 2/3 of the game. I am talking about him constantly choking, constantly missing wide open receivers costing the Cowboys points. Not just missing, throwing it 10 feet over their heads. He has a reputation for choking that will not go away until he stops choking in the big games. You’re right that he racks up stats during the regular season, but everyone not drinking Cowboy Kool-aid knows he will choke in the big games. History doesn’t lie. I hope he proves me wrong this year, I doubt it…
