For all the bashing Drew has taken I ask this: can anyone show me a Dallas QB that had 5 or more Game Winning drives in a single season? How about four game winning touchdown passes with less than 2 minutes to go (@SD, @SF, KC, @CAR), letalone against 3 winning teams and 3 road teams.
Some will raise the argument that other QBs always had the lead so they were still better. I disagree. I think Drew would have preferred the Defense not to blow the leads in all five games requiring a come back. The Defense has now blown late game leads in at least 7 games this season.
So bashers, it's on you: show me a Dallas (or even NFL) QB that had more than 5 GW drives in a single season.
I am sure Staubach had more in a season. They were called the Cardiac Cowboys for a reason. But I know Aikman never had many comeback wins at all because we seldom trailed.
Drew gave us a chance all year. Playoffs or no playoffs 10-6 is a good season for team who won 6 games the previous season. Factor in 10-6 against a tough tough schedule and I have no complaints.
Bledsoe is 2nd among NFL QBs in comeback wins since he entered the league behind only Favre.
