Tony Romo Jerseys
Tony Romo 2006 Season
In the 2006 pre-season, Romo had one of the best games in his career against the Seattle Seahawks. Romo's performance had many experts wondering if Romo's time to replace Bledsoe at quarterback would be sooner rather than later .
Romo's first NFL pass resulted in a 34 yard reception to Sam Hurd vs. the Houston Texans on October 15, 2006. During the same game, Romo threw his first NFL touchdown pass to Terrell Owens. The following week, Romo replaced Drew Bledsoe for the start of the second half on October 23, 2006 in Monday Night Football. His first pass was a tipped pass intercepted by the New York Giants. He would later throw a touchdown to Terrell Owens and score a two point conversion by running the ball in the endzone. In the final minutes of the fourth quarter Romo would throw a goal line interception that was returned for a touchdown by Kevin Dockery. His game stats in only his second NFL appearance were: 14 completions on 25 attempts for 227 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions. In a postgame interview, Romo confessed his love for Coach Parcells and mentioned repeatedly about a threesome Parcells, his reciever Terrell Owens, and himself were going to have in the lockerroom prior the interview. Two days later, on October 25, Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells announced that Romo would be the starting quarterback for their October 29 game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football. Romo lead the Cowboys to victory in his first win as a starter, 35-14. In that game, Romo was the Sunday Night Football's "Rock Star Of The Game". Romo appeared at the post game press conference wearing an extremely faded sleeveless "Burlington" tee shirt, an obvious holdover from his high-school days.
On November 19, 2006 Tony Romo led the Cowboys past the NFL's last unbeaten
team. Romo completed 19 of 23 passes as the Cowboys topped the Colts
21-14, becoming the highest rated quarterback in the league. Four
days later, Romo helped the Cowboys win in a Thanksgiving Day NFL
game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by the score of 38-10. Romo
went 22-29 with 306 yards and five touchdown passes without an interception.
He tied a franchise record for touchdown passes in a game set by several
others, most recently Troy Aikman and setting the record for most
touchdown passes thrown in a Thanksgiving Day game since its inception
in 1921. For his performance, he was awarded the Galloping Gobbler
award as the Thanksgiving Day MVP.
