    In the history of the NFL? I am actually curious. 9 million for that and 14 next year. I was seriously thinking back Ive never seen the likes of it. If any of us failed to that degree we would be fired from any job.

    If Romo is un clutch...so is Ware....

    Let's not pass blame to just 1 guy.

    If Ware does his job consistently....then Romo get's more chances.

    It's a team game. Romo has carried us so many times.

    Golden boy Ware, always get's a pass.

    Tony Romo- Mr. Unclutch. Has a ring to it, ironically.

    Not in recent history.

    Up to this year I believe it was basically just bad luck, coincidence, lack of alignment in the stars, etc

    Not sure what to believe about Romo any more.

    I know this -- when the game is on the line and it's for all the marbles, deep down I am pretty much waiting/expecting for Romo to make a bone-headed play -- and he has rarely failed not to do so.

    I'm not saying that he didn't make a million great / amazing plays up that point -- he did, he does, he will continue to do so...

    I am really starting to buy into the Romo as Favre-lite argument frankly.

    Any NFL historians know? I think the problem with him is mental and it will never change. It is what it is. He is a good guy. He cannot play well when it matters. His career was defined by a drop of a football. It never changed.

    I agree. Ware was a ghost lately. But seriously?? Too this magnitude? How many times do people and an orginization need to be burned by this Romo character?

    I'd say Favre and Payton have had some doozies but they also won their titles.

    Has there ever been a QB with so little of a supporting cast around him?

    I think that's the better question.

    I was officially done when Romo was out there with his head down and RG3 was the one patting him on the back and consoling him after the game. Wonder what kind of advice he gave to Romo.

    Turnover Tony does what he always does in the big game...no news here. He has done this his whole career and so many people make excuses for it. The Cowboys will never win anything with Turnover Tony as QB. I don't understand why the backup was not used last night as Tony continued to make bad decision after bad decision.

    Dallas needs to continue the youth movement -- the offensive line needs to be a focus of next years draft. And we need to draft a good young QB very very soon.

    13 Pro-Bowlers in 2007.

    Basically 3 1000 yard reciever types this year on offense including a HoF TE and a top 5 WR.

    Pretty good running back. Former 1st round pick RB behind him.

    You act like the cupboard is bare.

    Dude I know that has been an issue but the reverse has also been said. Its always an excuse. That game was lost from turnovers and Romo made them. That last throw cememnted his legacy. Its like he does it on purpose.

    Archie Manning. And how many playoff games did he win? Even the so called clutch QBs need help. Look at Big Ben. He had the number one defense but his running game and pass blocking failed and no playoffs. Same with Eli this year.

    You guys are idiots. Where were you idiots when romo carried this team on his back to get this team to even be in this situation?

    He was so not clutch vs NO, Pitt, Cincy, Cleveland, etc.

    He's not unclutch. He plays exactly as well as most NFL QBs do in road do or die games. Troy sucked in them, Danny White sucked in them, Marino sucked in them, Young sucked in them, Brady sucks in them.

    If the best the Cowboys can do every year is a road game against a division rival who is also desperate to win, they are NEVER going to break through. Knee jerk fans totally underestimate how hard these types of games are to win. Your hero Troy Aikman had 5TDs and 9INTS in them. It's HARD to win on the road.
