If you look at all the great Qbs from the past, you'll find their records for road elimination games are pretty bad too.
I think Romo has had two home elimination games and is 1-1 in those.
I'm not excusing is crappy game this past weekend, just pointing out some facts.
The fact you leave out is that Romo and company did not win enough games to play a home game and avoid this dreaded elimination road game.
Ergo, he still has a problem.
There is this thing that runs around the internet about players that have the most come backs for wins. Roger Staubach is one that did this a lot. Elways comes to mind.
But in each case of great comeback players, they also were the starting quarterbacks that got behind in the game in the first place.
I happened to have seen most of Staubach's games. And I can tell you his performance in the first three quarters was one of the reasons they were behind.
Not saying he was bad. But those teams had a habit of getting behind by playing half-***** football.
Charlie Water's comment that you just gotta believe really meant, you just gotta believe Roger is going to get tired of this losing crap and pull it out himself. Or chew enough butts in the huddle to get people's minds right.
I like Romo and think he can have a future here.
But tossing out stats as if that exempts him from his piss poor play is ridiculous.
