“Bears QB is the Tony Romo of the Midwest” According to Donovan McNabb
Yesterday former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb, told 87.7-FM’s “Kap and Haugh” show that Cutler isn’t a winner. A matter of fact, McNabb went on to bash the Bears quarterback, calling him the Tony Romo of the Midwest.
“He’s the Tony Romo of the Midwest,” McNabb said. “We can talk about arm talent, we can talk about being able to throw a ball through a wall. He can put up 280, 340 yards passing, but you look across the board he’s got two interceptions in a game that cost them 14 points or so. That hurts a football team.
“Can he play in this league? Absolutely, he’s proven that. But a quarterback is measured by your body of work, meaning your wins and losses record, the numbers you put up. And the end-all be-all is how many playoff wins do you have? How many playoff appearances do you have? If you only have one to show for almost a decade of play that means you can’t lead your team to the playoffs.
“Then the question is why? Because you’re so talented, the potential is there, but why haven’t you been able to do it? You can only say for so long that it’s been the talent. They have some talent around Cutler, that’s never been the issue. Now can you put it all together? To be honest, the answer is no.”
I really don’t believe Donovan McNabb can talk, because he was not really that great of a quarterback either. Tony Romo has his team at 5-1, so I guess that is a compliment?
