Michael Irvin made the kind of pronouncement Sunday that pretty much guarantees it’ll be proven wrong within hours.
Irvin, brainstorming with the NFL Network’s Kurt Warner and Warren Sapp, called Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo “the most dependable quarterback in the NFC.”
And the former Cowboy didn’t stop there. Out on his limb, he continued to saw furiously, adding that Romo (via the Dallas Morning News) is “the best quarterback in the NFC. Period.”
Perhaps. By the end of the day, though, the Cowboys were 2-2 after a 30-21 loss in San Diego. Romo, for the record, completed 27-of-37 passes for 244 yards and two touchdowns. For the season, he has thrown only one interception, so there’s that.
But … best QB in the NFC? Check the stats.
