    If turnover ratio isn't the single most influential stat in a game, tell me how many teams win a game with a -3 or worse turnover differential (our differential in the final game against Washington) irrespective of how many yards gained or given up?

    In fact go to the last game the Cowboys have played in the last ten years and see what it was and then see how many we’ve won.

    then Peyton Manning and Tom Brady just fell off the list; and Matt Ryan went farther down.

    Don't give Romo an extension. We are asking for long-term trouble doing so.

    Kaepernick has been the most impressive young QB of all the 1st-2nd year guys out there now. We'll see if he's able to sustain this level of performance over time but he's been nothing short of fantastic so far. Huge arm, fairly accurate, can scramble/run when needed and certainly can deliver in big spots. In fact all of these young QBs have bright futures. RG3, Luck, Wilson, Kap and even Cam.

    As for the Flacco, Ryan and Romo comparisons....i think the vast majority of GMs around the league would take those 2 guys over Romo. No question. And naturally i would expect Cowboys fans on a Cowboys message board to mostly side with Romo.

    This is my opinion as well. Romo needs massively better consistency of which its too late in his career to develop. So I think both are better.

    Guess what the Giants last year also had a better team around Eli. But you know what happened in that championship game vs. the 49ers? Regardless of how good the defense or run game or receivers or coaching was around Eli, there a came a point in that game when it was all on Eli's shoulders to stick a throw in a crucial moment. He did it multiple times in that game as did Flacco yesterday and last week. Point being, I hear ad nauseam on here about how Romo has trash around him and how we need to take less pressure off him by surrounding him with a better line and more consistent receivers. Well that is valid. But make no mistake about it, if he is going to lead this team to a Super Bowl run there is going to come a time when he is going to have to stick a throw on a 3rd down in the 4th quarter...I don't care how good his oline is, that moment at the crossroads will come and in that moment he has proven multiple times that he more often than not comes up short, many times in a catastrophic manner.

    joins the list of TEAMS that are better than the cowboys...when people watch these teams play dont you notice the obvious difference between the time they get to throw the ball and the time romo has.

    Didnt romo outperform flacco this season, but he doesnt kick field goals...:rolleyes:

    I remember saying last year I thought Flacco was better than Romo and all the Romo homers acted like I was crazy. Flacco was calm under pressure last year and with like .20 seconds on the clock he hit Lee Evans for the go ahead TD but Evans didn't hold on to the perfectly thrown ball.

    Flacco is not the best regular season QB or a big stats guy but he is good enough to lead his team deep in the playoffs or to the superbowl. He is very clutch in the playoffs. He is starting to remind me of Eli.

    Kapernick is showing tremendous poise out there as well. He beat Atlanta from standing in the pocket and throwing.. not with his feet. Also notice he didn't have one single turnover in such a huge game. If that were Romo.. he would have a couple of turnovers.

    I'm really impressed with Wilson as well. It's so amazing how all these rookie/2nd year QB's are doing so well and all I keep hearing is if we move on from Romo we will end up with the Quincy,Testaverde, Henson, Bledsoe, type QB etc. It's like fans can't wrap their heads around the fact that it is possible to find a solid new QB. Romo isn't even top 10 anymore. He is in the 12-15 range. Completely undependable/unreliable in pressure situations. What is sad is the Cowboys are about to sign him to a 4-5 year contract which guarantees us mediocrity for years to come.

    You aren't paying attention. Romo had time to throw for the majority of the game against Washington and Washington had a 30th rank passing defense. Romo threw for over 400 yards against them in the first game in Dallas. Yet, when the pressure was on in the "Win and you're in/win the division game" Romo completely melts down like clockwork and throws 3 interceptions that were ALL 100% on him. If Russell Wilson, Kaepernick, Luck, RG3, etc were the QB of that game for the Cowboys, we would have killed Washington.

    Romo was 100% of the reason we lost to Washington. Not the oline's fault, the defense, the coaching, the receivers, or anyone else's fault. 100% on Romo.

    Go back and watch the game. The pass protection was pretty decent.

    Besides Romo being in chock mode, it didn't help that Garrett had no answer on how to beat the blitz.

    Well, did Brady and Manning join the worse than those two list?

    Maybe the question should be, Is the strong run game and good defense back in vogue?

    Had nothing to do with washington being better as a team...or Romo was so bad all season he had us in that situation. I forgot about the defense carrying us the last 2 seasons to even have a shot at the playoffs...

    /sarcasm.

    They had a QB on 1 ACL who couldn't even throw the ball lol.

    We played not to lose and got beat. No sense of urgency when what we were doing wasn't working.


    Romo was great for most of the season. But he freaked out in a big moment. Just call a spade a spade. He set the stage and forgot his lines in the final scene.
