    You don't think we could have used three first round picks in the D-Line instead of the O-Line, where we never had any, ever when Troy and Emmitt were stars?

    C'mon now. "Romo friendly" isn't my term, it's Jerry's.

    Another lie. In Tonys career, the record is way worse in total in games that he didn't play in.

    8 years
    128 games total

    Record with Romo is 63-45
    Record without Romo is 9-11

    And that is taking away the Giants game that they were leading in when he got hurt, but then lost.
    Otherwise
    64-44
    8-12


    But now that we have a better line again, it does look better for. Who is next in line

    If someone needs to be told a 30 something QB is never going to the same following back surgery, I wonder how intelligent they are.

    Two different surgeries.

    And who thinks Manning will play more than another year or two?

    Romo is on the same timetable if I am the GM.

    Actually, both of their surgeries were on a part of their spine. So they were both back surgeries. Cervical spine surgery for manning and a buldging disc in Romo's in Romo's spine.

    I think some reasonable people would agree that making a comparison on the probability of a successful comeback between two people who play the same sport and position would be a sensible way to guess if a comeback may be successful.

    Different surgeries to parts if the spine yes. It is a reasonable comparison.

    You could reasonably compare a torn acl and torn mcl injury comeback attempts the same way.

    I'm kind of inclined to think this may be Peyton's last season. He was talking after the SB about being unsure if he could pass the physical testing on his neck to play this season. I'm saying that but then again he's such a big time player you'd think they would announce that so at every away game that city could give him kudos.

    Nonsense. There isn't a surgeon in the world that would look at the history of Manning's type of injury and apply it to Romo and his recovery.

    People actually think his back is shredded and it is being covered up, but if anyone has ever had a back injury that is troubling you, you cannot hold your kid without it killing you. In other words, we have photo evidence it is not as bad as people are wringing their hands about.

    Surgeons? Maybe not. Sports fans, writers, etc. yes.
    A better comparison is Montana. He had the same surgery and recovered well.

    The surgeon is the best educated opinion.

    We shall see on Romo. I have no idea how he's going to hold up but those that are acting like it's a non issue are once again sticking their head in the sand with this team. 34 and two recent back surgeries. Not good.

    The neck injury revealed the narrowing of the spine which was what caused Irvin to retire.
