Former New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer co-hosts a show with Tim Ryan on SiriusXM NFL Radio called 'Moving the Chains', and he isn't shy about calling it like he sees it, no matter how wrong everyone else might think he is.
Toomer and Ryan discussed the two QBs today and the former Giant had this to say:
“Tony Romo is probably, if you look at it statistically, he’s probably the best quarterback in the NFC East,” Toomer said. “You look at Eli Manning and what he does in the fourth quarter, but you talk about consistency, talking about 31 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions, that guy can play.”
Most would not agree with that assessment, becuase you know, after all, Eli Manning has two Super Bowl rings.
“I’m talking about, for me, if I wanted a guy that is going to throw less interceptions and be more productive, higher completion percentage, I’m going to go with Tony Romo,”.
In a later moment of sanity, Toomer did concede that Romo does have some serious issues when the game is on the line.
“At crunch time he’s not as good as Eli but every other time he’s pretty darn good,”
We'll take crunch time over every other time.
