A look back at some of the more memorable moments of Tony Romo's year career with the Dallas Cowboys:. The free agent: Romo set numerous program records at Eastern Illinois, but that only generated a late invite to the NFL scouting combine in Yet Romo still went undrafted, and it came down to signing a free agent deal with either the Cowboys or Denver Broncos. Romo picked the Cowboys thinking he had a better shot to make the roster. The Cowboys trailed at the half, and struggling starter Drew Bledsoe had just thrown his eighth interception of the season.

Peyton Manning’s most unstoppable weapon reveals what makes him a great quarterback.
By Justin Terranova. His familiarity with the current game and ability to recognize defenses — thus allowing him to sometimes predict what will happen before the play — has impressed viewers. Players have come straight from the field to the booth and have had success before, from Phil Simms to Troy Aikman. It was always something we understood.
