Last time i checked Andrew Luck and RGIII both made it to the PB. 12 of the 16 QBs that played in the SB in the last 8 years were first round picks. Not that shabby of a chance to get a starter at QB in round 1 i would say.
And dont get me wrong: i dont want to trade Romo. It's just the way some people trying to argue. They arent able to give any facts but post bold statements that are based purly on emotions. I will never understand why people are embarrassing themself over and over again.
You're not comprehending what he said his comment had to do with "production" not with finding a starting QB. He said "The odds of our next attempt at franchise QB being as productive as our current one are very, very low."
He used the word "productive" and he's correct it won't be very easy to find a QB as productive as Romo. Luck and Cam Newton are the only QB's who've come out recently that have put up over 4000 yards passing. RG3 had a good year in 2012 but he was 1700 yards behind Romo in passing and threw for 8 fewer TD's.
Russell Wilson had a good year but he was 1800 passing yards behind Romo and tossed 2 fewer TD's. It's obvious by their numbers they had a lot more help from their running game and defense than Romo had from his. Only 2 QB's threw for more yards than Romo in 2012 and only 5 QB's threw for more TD's than Romo. In Romo's 7 years as the starter he's passed for over 4000 yards 4 times and the 3 times he didn't was due to him not playing a full season. He's thrown for 26 or more TD's 5 times and the 2 times he didn't was due to a shortened season.
Even the last 2 SB winning QB's haven't been as "productive" as Romo over the course of their careers in the regular season. Romo consistently puts up over 4000 yards passing and 26 or more TD's. Because of the Cowboys lack of running game and the teams average defense the Cowboys would never be able to compete with a QB who couldn't put up the numbers Romo does. As far as "production" goes he's up there with the best but the big issue with him is not being able to produce when it matters most. In the critical make or break games late in the season his turnovers go up and his production goes down. This is where I've been very critical of him which has caused some to think I hate him.
He's been able to carry the team at times during the regular season but he can't do it when it's down to do or die. One of the most difficult things for a team to find is a QB who can get it it done when your season or a championship is on the line. There's been a lot of very productive QB's but not many who've been clutch.
