    I'm interested in his career stats early in games. Not just last year.

    Tony Romo is an above average QB, but he'll break your heart. And so many posters on here suffer from battered woman syndrome. Trying to justify why he isn't even close to part of the problem.

    There is no doubt Tony deserves some of the blame for our lack of success. He is certainly not blameless. The biggest reason though is who we have running the team. The lack of success was here long before Tony.

    Because that's where your heart is, with this team's pass offense. It's the only part of the team that offers a consistent payoff for the emotional investment required of the fan. In this portfolio, diversification is not an option.

    If you know your quarterback has Brett Favre-like tendencies, you don't give him the authority of Brett Favre. How hard is that to understand?
    Tony Romo needed a young Bill Parcells. He didn't need a Bill Walsh.
    He needed someone to keep him under control. Instead, we gave him the offense, and he turned out to be a mini Brett Favre without the championship appearances or the Super Bowl ring.

    Agreed -- I want Tony to carry the team to playoff wins as much as anybody and I also believe he has to be better but he has to at least be put in reasonable positions to do so. Putting up 40 on the Broncos and losing frames a narrative on him that is simply false. I hope we can agree on that.

    He looked terrific in that game slashing up Denver but then again so did Peyton slashing up Dallas. Then at the end when needed he made a huge mistake with a wide open Demarco for the easy check down. Now, if you wanna say due to poor coaching/game planning he is at a disadvantage at times, I can certainly agree with that. I also think we have much bigger problems then Romo. Hey, I'm trying to find some middle ground with ya Don.

    No doubt. I think another year or 2 with Parcells would have made Romo a much better QB/ student of the game and his career...especially elimination/playoff games would have looked a whole lot better.

    That's pretty amazing.

    Could that era. The further we get away from the original game plan, the better? Lol

    He's definitely on the risky side of average, but nothing approaching Eli for example.

    This past season Romo has more input in the gameplan, and his 1st qtr rating is 90.6.

    Makes you think, doesn't it?

    No, I know dude we're good.

    From my perspective there have been a lot of games where he just should've never been in a position to have to make a throw like that to win the game and then to be honest there were other times that he made bad decisions and we lost.

    But -- I simply cannot grasp the "animosity" towards him when chances are we will have to be very bad (draft pick) or very lucky to get that kind of production out of the next quarterback of the team we all love when he retires. Shouldn't we enjoy it now while we at least have a chance with him?
