Tony Romo Will Throw For Over 5,000 Yards in 2014
After passing on Johnny Manziel and drafting offensive lineman Zack Martin in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys reiterated the fact that Tony Romo is their quarterback and he will be for the next few seasons. Despite being 34 years old with a history of back problems and numerous injuries, Romo has the ingredients to have the best season in his career in 2014. While 5,000 yards may sound like a lot, it should be worth noting how good this Dallas offense really is.
By drafting Martin in the first round, the Cowboys now have three first-round offensive linemen. The trio of Martin, Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick will combine to be one of the best in all of the league. All have been drafted in the past four years and all will likely be in Dallas for the rest of their careers. Skill position players are the ones who score touchdowns and get all of the fame, but the offensive linemen are the reason they can do all of that.
Another reason why Romo will have an amazing season is because of the players around him. With Scott Linehan calling plays, the Cowboys’ offense will be much more lethal and there will actually be a consistent running attack. Romo will have Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Jason Witten, Cole Beasley and even Devin Street to connect with across the field. The talent around Romo is the best he has played with, and he will flourish because of that.
With an improved offensive line and the receivers around him clicking, the Cowboys and Romo are in for a big offensive season in 2014. While they may not put up the numbers the Denver Broncos put up in 2013, Dallas could definitely be ranked as one of the top offenses in the league by the end of the 2014 season. Romo should be a nice sleeper in fantasy football leagues as he will have the chance to do something he has never done by eclipsing 5,000 passing yards.
