Bucky Brooks of NFL.com continued his offseason player comparisons with a look at Tony Romo and Eli Manning. Here’s a career comparison of their statistical totals:
- Completion Percentage – 64.5%
- Passing Yards – 20,834
- Touchdowns – 149
- Interceptions – 72
- Completion Percentage – 58.4%
- Passing Yards – 27,579
- Touchdowns – 129
- Interceptions – 99
The only number that matters to is 2 – that’s the number of Super Bowl victories Eli Manning has lead his team to. Eli has a 8-3 playoff record while Romo is 1-3 in postseason play. Manning also enjoys a slight edge in their head to head battles. He is 6-4 when facing off against his NFC East rival.
While Tony Romo may be the flashier of the two quarterbacks, I’ll take Eli and his winning pedigree over Romo at any time.
