According to this chart, Manning may not be the more efficient quarterback when it comes to completions and interceptions. However, he does know how to win. You can’t take away his amazing playoff record and whopping 95 wins total. Romo struggles in the playoffs going there six times and losing four of the contests.
Being the best stats quarterbacks doesn’t matter in the end. What matters the most is if you can win games. Manning has proven time and time again that he can come up huge. It’s very hard to find a quarterback in this league who could command respect of a team, play big in key moments, and be able to win from behind.
Romo is a great quarterback hands down. He is among the top ten for sure, but it all boils down to wins. You could have the greatest stats in the world and not be able to play in key moments.
