    If you don't learn from past mistakes, you're doomed to repeat them. Do you wanna go through another Hutchinson, Henson, leaf, qc, Anthony wright, type scenario again? I doubt we can right this ship before tony retires so we need to start thinking about the future.

    Draft a qb in round 1 next year. It's time to start thinking about who our qb of the future will be. If we're lucky tony will retire as our backup.

    there are TONS of people smarter than either of us when it comes to the nfl....people who make millions doing what they do in the nfl.

    ALL of them have orton riding the bench.

    We can argue all day about this that or the other when it comes to who has what arm. But the people in the know have orton holding down a bench on the sideline.

    Jim Kelly has a ton of playoff wins...is that the measuring stick we're using these days?

    Tim tebow has more playoff wins as a bronco than manning in the same amount of seasons...I guess tebow is better?

    It's one of the measuring sticks we use. It's usually pretty accurate. No, I don't think Orton should start. But my point is that we should be contemplating who our qb of the future is going to be. Tony hasn't won anything. 1 playoff victory. That's a shame. We won't be a contender for few years and by that time, tony will be washed up.

    We should draft a qb round 1 next year. The other needs don't matter because one player isn't going to put us over the top.

    I am no Romo fan so i will say it. he is better than Kyle Orton. but that's not saying anything. the point is he's not good enough to ever win anything with Dallas. he's a 33 year old QB who is in decline.but 108 millions dollars tells me he's not going anywhere.that contract was another big mistake by Jerry the fool.

    A "below average" QB whose defense got him 24-27 TOs in ten games and whose offence actually made an effort to run the ball...

    Only ignorant fans use playoff wins as a measuring stick for how good a QB is. Just the statement on it's own, makes absolutely no sense to anyone with half a brain.

    Playoff wins is a pretty good reflection of how successful a qb's career has been. That's when it really matters. That's when good qb's are at their very best.

    If you can't understand that, then don't bother reading bc most things will just go over your head.

    If playoff success isn't a good metric for measuring qb success then what is? Regular season stats? That's ridiculous.

    Qb's are remembered by, ranked, graded, by their playoff performances. Not regular season.

    If you're gonna make a claim and call someone "ignorant" in a roundabout way, at least man up and give me some reasons as to why you believe what you believe.

    You wanna know the difference? He's got a ring. He had to play the patriots too. Thats where a lot of his losses came from. He's played in a lot of playoff games, which means he was good enough to get his team to the playoffs in the first place.

    Good TEAMS make the playoffs, not bad teams with a good QB, at least not consistently. Playoff wins are a silly way to measure how well a QB has performed for your organization, you do understand there are 53 other players, right? It's a team game, and those QBs you see in the playoffs have a good TEAM around them. That's why you still see QBs put up pitiful performances and their team still comes away with the W.

    Cowboys are a below average team with an above average QB, and collectively as a team we're an average NFL team (5-5). Hence why we miss the playoffs year in and year out.

    It's common sense and doesn't need repeating. I'm not in the business of educating the less educated.

    Doesn't matter how many guys are on the team. Playoff wins measures how successful a qb's career has been. If he has one playoff win. That's not too successful. Not saying its all his fault or he's a bad qb. Never said that. He just hasn't been very successful. Being the qb, he has to take some blame. It can't always be someone else's fault. And unless you wanna go through another Ryan lead chad Hutchinson Anthony wright scenario then we need to draft a qb soon.

    Yeah that's why you keep ignoring my question. If playoff wins isn't a good thing to look at when measuring qb success then what is? That's what really matters. Winning playoff games.

    You got nothing to back up what you say.

    I'm not saying he is the problem or he sucks. Just saying he hasn't been successful. And it has been a failure to this point. ONE playoff win since he's been here. That's not very good. Especially when ppl want to put him in a category with aikman.
