Tony Romo leads his upstart Dallas Cowboys into Green Bay for a playoff game against the Packers on Sunday. If one Packers scout had his way, though, Romo would have been a member of the Green Bay Packers. The scout was impressed by Romo, a Wisconsin native who played at Eastern Illinois University, and thought he could eventually replace legendary Packers quarterback Brett Favre. But the Packers didn’t select Romo in the 2003 draft — and neither did anyone else. Romo instead signed with the Cowboys and developed into a Pro Bowler. The Packers didn’t totally miss out, though. They drafted Aaron Rodgers in 2005, and he turned out pretty good, too.
