Buffalo/Miami Shows Us What Life Is Without Romo
When you watch these teams and their QB play how can you ever rationalize getting rid of Romo right now. For those 7 or 8 posters on here who flat out hate him (that's all there really is) this is what you are going to get if you get rid of Romo unless you get a Luck or RG III and let's face it, we are never going to be THAT bad in the next five years.
Ryan Tannehill - a rookie who shows a lot of promise. He's got the size and the pedigree and the arm but he makes rookie mistakes and is not half the athlete Romo is. He could be good to great someday or he could be a guy who never materializes into a great QB. He's got a ways to go and there are no guarantees. Do you really want to wait two or three more years to find out because if you do say goodbye to Ware and Witten, Ratliff, and a big core of this team.
Ryan Fitzpatrick - a classic middle of the road QB. He can have big games but is a statue in the pocket. In fact when I watch him move around it actually shocks me how much more of an athlete Romo is. He is tentative in his throws and still makes bad decisions. The thing is he doesn't have the star power or ability to make up for those throws and has to trudge his way through and hope his defense and special teams pull it out like they did tonight. But here's the thing, the Buffalo Bills are an NFL team who are all in on him because they believe this guy can win and face it, they have no other options -- see also the Chiefs, Vikings, Cardinals, Jets, etc.
That's exactly where we were with the revolving door before Romo.
I'll take the rollercoaster thrill a minute Romo ride who gives us at least a chance to win a Super Bowl and enjoy every excruciating, brilliant, sometimes brutal second of it until he can no longer play before I ever get on the rookie or average Joe ferris wheel and scream from boredom with no hope.
When we have to start over, we start over and I'll be onboard, but not before.
