2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Update (8/27): Tony Romo broke a bone in his back and will be forced to miss 6 to 10 weeks. Dak Prescott will start in his place. Romo's injury negatively affects Dez Bryant and Jason Witten.

Update (7/22): Tony Romo will have no restrictions in training camp, which is a good sign.

2015 was a tough season for Tony. He opened up with 356 yards and three TDs against the Giants in Week 1, but his season turned in the wrong direction in his second game when Romo suffered a broken bone in his left shoulder. After missing seven games, Tony only played two more games with minimal success (333 yards and two TDs) before re-injuring his left shoulder. For some reason, he didn't have surgery on his left shoulder until early March. Romo should have no limitations when the lights go on in training camp. The Cowboys' quarterbacks threw for 3677 yards with 16 TDs in 2015, which was a complete mess with Dez Bryant injured as well for a good part of the year. The previous year Tony was one bad call away from a possible Super Bowl berth in 2014 (WR Dez Bryant TD against the Packers in the division playoff game), which would have washed away some of his misery in key moments for the Cowboys. He led the league in yards per pass attempts (8.5). As well as Romo played in 2014, he had the 31st ranked passing opportunity in the NFL due to only 29 pass attempts per game. He only had one game with 300+ yards with 11 games with fewer than 30 pass attempts in his 17 starts. His value was created by his ability to throw TDs (seven games with three TDs or more).Tony threw a career-high 37 TDs while leading the league in completion rate (69.9). In his career, Romo has thrown more than 30 TDs in four different years. The 2016 Cowboys are built to run the ball, which will be important to keep Tony healthy all season. He'll start the season at 36 with only one elite receiving option. Romo will be a solid game manager with some big game ability while offering an edge in TDs. His floor should be 4000 passing yards with 30 TDs.
