"Stats don't matter, playoff wins do."
Are you trying to use his own "argument" against him?
Yep. Just look at Bills past success without Brady. Amazing success.
Might want to point that out to those who claim Romo is better than Staubach and Aikman due to his stats.
Ponder this Brady is amongst the top 5 greatest QB's in NFL history and is rated well ahead of Staubach and Aikman and you're claiming he would be a bad fit in Dallas. Your homerism is showing and it's making me smh.
Why would Brady be yelling at a wide open receiver if "he" missed him? Brady's frustration has everything to do with what I mentioned. Romo's looked a lot better during the regular season than some QB's who ended winning SB's. Go compare Romo's elimination game numbers with the elimination game numbers of those QB's during their SB runs. Romo always looks good until it's down to make or break.
That would show just how lost he is.
In a certain sense, Brady might not be as good a fit in Dallas. He probably wouldn't be able to evade half as many sacks as Romo has to behind the Cowboys' current offensive line, for instance.
Being a better quarterback (and I agree that Brady is a better QB than Romo) doesn't necessarily mean being a better fit on a particular team.
The Cowboys OL has pass protected much better this season. Brady is an excellent pocket passer who has always been great at side stepping defenders ala Dan Marino. Brady doesn't hold onto the ball long he would fit on any team.
If Brady wouldn't ft with the Cowboys then Peyton Manning wouldn't fit. Try telling any HC or GM in the NFL that Brady wouldn't fit in Dallas or with some other team and they wouldn't be able to contain their laughter. Pair Brady with Dez and it would be a light show.
Please name a single poster who has said such a thing on the Zone.
There's been several who've claimed Romo is better than Staubach and Aikman due his superior numbers. I certainly can't name the posters but I'm sure there's plenty of regulars on the board who've seen it for themselves. As a matter of fact there was a thread recently asking fans to rate all the Cowboys QB's and I'm almost certain (not positive) there was at least one poster who had Romo ranked #1 ahead of Staubach and Aikman.
If I have the time I'll try and locate the thread. If this board had a search feature I could come up with several links to posts with FANS claiming Romo is better than Staubach and Aikman due to his career numbers. Some have gone as far as using Romo's career passing rating to argue he's better than Staubach and Aikman. Some of the things that are posted on this board defy all logic. Some things are so ridiculous it's hard to tell if someone is joking or they're being serious. What I'm telling you isn't a joke it's a fact!
My point being that Barry Sanders was a great running back and had plenty of great stats, but didn't win many playoff games. It's the playoff wins and SB rings that count, don't they?
My point is Barry Sanders wasn't a QB there's only so much influence an RB has on the outcome of a game which is why RB's aren't given a W/L record like QB's. No one was pointing the finger at Barry for the Lions lack of playoff success.
I found the poll that was started Oct 10th with at least a couple of posters (won't call them out) who had Romo ranked ahead of Staubach and Aikman. There was at least 2 more who had Romo ranked ahead of either Staubach or Aikman. Some didn't explain why they ranked Romo ahead of Staubach and Aikman but from the many debates I've had with those who have ranked Romo ahead of them they all pointed to his career numbers and passer rating.
They could care less about playoff wins or championships or that they all played in different eras. They disregard the fact that all QB's numbers today are inflated due to the rule changes and the NFL being a pass happy league. They don't care that 7 of the top 10 career passer rating leaders are current QB's. I won't post the link to the thread because the last time I did that on an older thread I got slapped. The title of the thread is "How would you rank Meredith, Staubach, White, Aikman, Romo?" If you or anyone else wants the link PM me.
I fixed it for you.
They had so much luck one year that they won the Super Bowl.
That luck ran out as quick as they got it and the began the season as 0-6.
That's good luck/bad luck.
And you're 100% right KJJ, Romo has looked better then those QBs, and it's because he IS better. Flacco? He's better. Roethlisberger? He's better. Eli? He's better. It takes a team to win a SuperBowl and not just one player like the QB, you of all should know that.
People talk about how great PM is (and he is great), but he would be ring less, just like Romo if it weren't for his TEAM stepping up when it counted most. The thing with Romo is that there is NO TEAM, if Romo isn't on his A game, then more times then not we lose. Even if he is on his A Game we still can lose, because how god awful his supporting cast has been. Heck we saw it in the Denver game, that Denver game mimicked how Romo's career has been with Dallas, so much that it's scary. Talk to me about Romo when the TEAM picks up their play in those "elimination games".
Think Romo would ever win a playoff game by having a piss poor embarrassing low QB rating? No, but Joe Flacco has and more then once. That's because he has actually had something called a TEAM around him.
You'll never convince him/them. Not with facts. Not with logic. Not with truth. Not with reason.
I would be willing to bet that if Romo does win a Super Bowl he wont get credit from this crowd. They will give the TEAM the credit. Prob say the TEAM won in spite of Romo.
Or show he has your number like so many others do.
