Tony Romo: How many productive years are left?
At NBC, I just posted an article comparing Tony Romo’s past career production with that of the typical NFL quarterback. In my opinion, as long as Romo is near his peak, the Cowboys will continue to have a chance to win it all. The good news is that quarterbacks can play at a very high level well into their 30s:
I’ve tracked the production of quarterbacks over the past two decades in terms of Pro Football Reference’s approximate value (AV). Quarterback play tends to remain remarkably stable well into the mid-30s. It peaks at age 30, which is later than most positions, but never drops below 89 percent of that peak through the subsequent six seasons. Most positions see a precipitous drop in production right around age 31.
