Witten thinks Romo should ignore outside opinions, good or bad


A week after former Giants receiver Amani Toomer picked current Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo over current Giants quarterback Eli Manning, a current Cowboy said that the current Cowboys quarterback should tune out that kind of noise.

“You usually don’t hear that from Giants fans,” tight end Jason Witten told “It was good to hear for Tony. I think for all of us, especially Tony, you have to be able to block that out -- good or bad.”

And then Witten offered up one of the assessments that he thinks Romo should ignore.

“I think he’s an elite league quarterback,” Witten said. “Many people have said that. I think that’s great that Amani said that, but at the end of the day, Eli is a Super Bowl champ. He’s won two out of the last five years. They’re doing a lot of good things right up there. They’re the poster boys of how you do it and not let adversity get in the way because of where they’re at.”

So, um, is Witten saying Eli is a better quarterback than Romo?
