AMANI TOOMER: TONY ROMO IS BETTER THAN ELI MANNING
Wed, 11 Jul 2012 02:54 AM EDT

Former N.Y Giants WR Amani Toomer asserts Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is better than Giants QB Eli Manning.

What makes this interesting is that Toomer played with Manning for 5 seasons in New York.

“Tony Romo is perhaps, if you look at it, statistically speaking he’s possibly the best QB in the NFC East,” Toomer claimed on a radio show. “You look at Eli Manning and what he does in the 4th quarter, but you talk of consistency, talking about 31 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions, that guy (Romo) can play.”

Romo is 18-19 in his career against the NFC East and 5-7 against the New York Giants, including 3 losses at Cowboys Stadium.

Manning, fresh off his 2nd Super Bowl title, is 26-20 vs. the NFC East and 9-6 against the Dallas Cowboys. He never has lost at Cowboys Stadium. Basketball odds

“I’m speaking about for me, if i wanted a guy that’s going to throw less interception and be more productive, higher completion %, I’m going to go with Tony Romo,” Toomer said.

Yet, the receiver backtracked slightly when told of Romo’s late-game struggles.

Manning has 21-year-old 4th-quarter comebacks and 25 game-winning drives, with 4 of the victories coming against the Cowboys, including one this past season.

Of Romo’s 13 4th-quarter comebacks, only one has come against the Giants.

“At crunch time, he is not as good as Eli,” Toomer said. “But every other time, he’s extremely good.”

Toomer didn’t address Manning’s 2-0 edge over Romo in Super Bowls. Manning has 8 playoff wins in his career, including a road victory in Dallas, matched against Romo’s one.

While Manning is undefeated in NFC title games, Romo still has to reach one. Manning also has the head-to-head edge against Romo, winning the previous 5 starts against him.

NFL players also would appear to differ with Toomer.

In the NFL Network’s “Top 100″ list voted on by the players, Manning came in at No. 31, ranking him as the 5th-best QB in the league. Romo was ranked 91st, putting him as the 12th-best quarterback.

N.Y Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas, a former colleague of Toomer, also backed his QB: “Man Toomer my dog and a great giant, helped me a lot as a young rook but isn’t no way Romo better then Eli…both good QB’s but… Well.”

Toomer’s declarations could draw the anger of N.Y Giants’ admirers, who did not react well to Tiki Barber after he criticized Manning after the running back’s retirement in 2006. When Barber, maybe the franchise’s best RB, was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor in 2010, the crowd serenaded him with boos for his negative comments about Manning and his other rips on coach Tom Coughlin.

New York Giants’ defensive end Osi Umenyiora wouldn’t be stunned if Toomer is treated the same way.

“They will be booing my guy Toomer at Giants Stadium,” Umenyiora recounted, “that we can agree on.”

Manning and the New York Giants will host Romo’s Cowboys in the 1st game of the season on September 5.
