The Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is one of the most successful NFL players in the league. At 34 years-old, Romo´s career has been a great example of what a quarterback player should aim for. He´s been a key player for the Cowboys since 2003 when he replaced starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe.
The following are some of his all-time records as a professional football player:
- Games with 3+ touchdown passes: 32; previously held by Danny White (20)
- Games with 300+ yards passing: 44; previously held by Troy Aikman (13)
- Lowest career interception percentage: 2.68% (minimum 16 starts; previously held by Aikman with 3.0)
- Touchdown passes: 208 (previously held by Aikman with 165)
- Most 4th Quarter Comebacks/Game-winning drives (23) – tied with Roger Staubach
- Consecutive games with a TD pass: 28 (2012–13); previously held by Romo (20, 2010-11)
On a recent note, Romo returned to action on Saturday for the preseason game against the Ravens and his best days of practice were on Saturday and Sunday. Despite, a good performance Cowboys QBs coach Wade Wilson believes Romo’s deep ball isn’t all the way back yet after his second back surgery. There is no doubt, it will take some time before he is 100%, but many experts believe there are high hopes it will happen shortly.
“(Romo’s deep routes) have been a little inconsistent,” Wilson said. “I think that’s all due to his back.” However, Wilson added that he expects Romo to get “stronger and more confident in his throws” as camp rolls on. Two back surgeries in two years is nothing to sneeze at, but there’s no real reason to worry about Romo’s return. He’ll sit out Dallas’ preseason opener on Thursday before making his exhibition debut on August 16 against the Ravens.
Here are a couple of videos on the latest news and rumors on Romo´s recovery:
“I feel personally like I’ve just started to come into the player that wanted to be six, seven years ago,” Romo said after the Cowboys’ first training camp practice Thursday. “I think — and I’ve said it before — but I think over the course of the next four or five years, you’ll see the best version of me that I’ve had throughout my career. That’s for a lot of different reasons. But I really believe that, and I believe that will show as we go forward. So I’m excited about that. As my body continues to get healthier and healthier, it’s going to be better.”
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has also been part of the East coast team for a decade now and has had an impressive career as a professional football player. Some of his achievements include:
- 2× Super Bowl champion (XLII, XLVI)
- 2× Super Bowl MVP (XLII, XLVI)
- 3× Pro Bowl (2008, 2011, 2012)
- 2× NFC champion (2007, 2011)
- Sporting News Sportsman of the Year (2008)
- Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award (2003)
- Maxwell Award (2003)
It seems that the Giants´ offense is completely lost after three preseason games we have witnessed for the New York Giants. The team simply can’t run the new system that first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is currently installing, but what is more intriguing and worrisome is Eli Manning´s performance which so far this summer is certainly a cause for concern.
So far in the preseason warm ups, we see Manning struggling…“No, I don’t worry too much,” Manning said. “Obviously you want to go out there and you want to play well. You feel like you should be able to find completions and do things well. But you can’t get worried at this point in time.”

Last, but not least important is Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins who just recently joined the Bills´roster. Last Saturday Watkins left the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a rib contusion and did not return.
Watkins had X-rays of the ribs taken, but the results were unknown at the time. Watkins took a hit from Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier on a third-down pass from EJ Manuel, which fell incomplete but was negated by a separate Steelers penalty. “I think Sammy will be fine,” Manuel said. “Hopefully he’ll come back and bounce back from whatever little injury he had.”
