    I brought this up last week and got crucified, so I will try and do a better job this time. I think Tony is a very good QB with lots of athletic ability. What I would like him to learn to do better is step into the pocket and throw the ball more. If you watch Rivers, and I understand it may be that the SD OL is that much better than we are, but Rivers will drop back, let the rushers come, step forward into the pocket and throw, and most importantly, he rarely rushes a throw.

    Tony seems to rush the throw way too many times and rarely steps into the pocket like Rivers does.

    Again, I realize that maybe SD's OL just does a much better job than our OL, but if you are watching the game tonight you will understand what I am saying.

    It looks like, and this may be the answer, that Rivers trusts his OL alot more than Tony.

    If our OL could block like the Chargers are doing tonight and Tony learned to just relax and step up into pocket, we would score 40 points a game, I really believe this. I don't know if this is a matter of coaching or what, it is just very obvious watching tonight's game.

    OK, I am done, go ahead and roast me and tell me I don't know football!

    After the 2007 season Romo decided he wanted to emulate Tom Brady.He liked how Brady stood in the pocket and how smoth he was while in the pocket.I think after he did that he hurt himself more than he helped himslef because he changed his style of play.Romo needs to be Romo,he can't try to emulate other players or he will screw himslef up again.

    I agree, Tony needs to roll out more, I think he is best when doing that.

    Romo is getting back to his old self by moving around and making plays.

    You stated on your own....Our O line will not allow him to just stand in the pocket and then step up...we get pressured from all over

    Designed roll outs have there place in an offense.

    The thing that Romo needs to do is scramble when there is nothing there.For awhile he would just sit in the pocket and take the sack instead of scrambling.The game against the Saints was the first time in awhile where Romo made the decision to go scramble instead of waiting for a play to develop.He doesn't have to run for many yards on those scrambles he just has to keep the defense aware of the possibility.

    I agree, Romo has taken a lot of pointless sacks, last week I saw the old Romo.

    I bet Tony would love to just stay in the pocket and throw. Unfortunately, it aint happening with this O-line.

    Rivers is just better than Romo. Why can't people just realize that and stop bringing up this oline nonsense? I've seen them block just fine and him still do stupid ****.

    Two different types of QB. That said, rivers is having a huge season. Even if he is ********.

    The team clearly doesn't want Romo rolling out. He may be more prolific when he does that, but that's also where he tends to get hit (often from behind) and fumbles.

    The problem is that we have a mediocre line---esp. Davis who tends to have at least 5 or 6 complete whiffs every game. (He's dominant or terrible, never in-between.)

    Somebody is christmas-day-bitter with a chip on his shoulder.

    Tony is only a top 10 NFL quarterback this year in fewest turnovers. That's all.

    Oh...and has been well documented: he's in the top five of QBs all time in qb rating.

    So clearly stilltheguru still has issues.

    If Norv were here you would see Romo playing more like Rivers. Norv just knows how to run the system better than Garrett imo.

    It's shocking he has time to troll here and take away from his TO jock riding. Also to the OP, Romo has to run for his life a lot and Rivers has a clean pocket most of the time. But that is not to take away the fantastic season that Rivers is having atm and Romo too.

    The ignore list is a wonderful thing. Every time someone quotes one of these guys it just reminds me why they are on my ignore list.
