Have we been too hard on Romo? Maybe just a little?

    QB rating has nothing to do with passing attempts -- at it's most basic level it is how good a passer you are per 'attempt' (Note: singular).

    You've just figured this out? So tell me, what's it like to blind all your life and then regain your vision?

    If Romo had duplicated Peytons performance last night ESPN and the fanbase would be crucify him...since it's Peyton it don't get much more than an honorable mention

    When is Wilson ever playing from behind ? Or losing by more than a field goal . With us romo has to throw for 400 and 4-5 tds for us to win . And sometimes it still not enough !

    Peyton's been called a playoff choker for a long time and he got called a choker by a lot of people yesterday, despite being in the superbowl, so Peyton doesn't escape blame. Romo needs to make the playoffs consistently before he gets the 'pass' Peyton gets. If Peyton missed the playoffs 3 times in the row, don't you think he'd be decimated as well?

    Sounds like what my Packer family members would say in the early to mid 90s when complaining whenever dared to say Aikman was better than Favre...

    "When is Aikman ever playing from behind ? Or losing by more than a field goal . With us [the Packers] Favre has to throw for 400 and 4-5 tds for us to win . And sometimes it still not enough !"

    - Only 2 4000-yard seasons away from moving into the top-20 all-time in passing yards despite sitting on the bench his first two seasons
    - Only 2 25+ TD seasons away from moving into the top-20 all-time in TD's thrown
    - 5th all-time in passer rating - ahead of such luminaries like Brees and Dan Marino, etc.
    - Threw for the 12th-most yards in NFL history (506) against DEN (by comparison Aaron Rodgers' best is only 480)
    - Doing all of this while having merely been a UDFA

    etc.

    Point the finger at Romo all you want for the team underachieving but looking at those stats at some point you have to figure maybe, just maybe it's not him but the team around him.

    this league defense wins superbowls and if russel wilson beating the lights out of peyton manning doesnt show you that, then unfortunately there is no cure.

    cowboys O puts up 48 vs denver, seattle O put up what, 28?
    cowboys D gives up 51 vs denver, seattle D gives up 8

    hmm must be romos fault

    Romo has never lost to the 49ers. You're referring to the Packers game I believe.

    This team has been 'romo friendly' for years now. We got rid of 'problem childs' like TO, Pacman Jones, Martellus Bennett, Felix Jones, etc., and still the same results. We beefed up the Oline and actually had a serviceable one this year. Still 8 and 8. We gave Romo more freedom. Still 8 and 8. Our record isn't solely on Romo, but to say 'its the guys' around him is inaccurate. The only major pieces on this team that haven't changed have been Romo, Witten and Ware. Romo has been as much a part of the problem as everyone else. He's not solely to blame, but he doesn't escape blame either.

    Romo had time this year and played very well. I like Romo and appreciate him being here.

    But too hard?

    When he plays lights out and moves the team, all on his shoulders, there are few like him.

    When he tries to do too much and turns the ball over, there are many like him.

    I would not trade him. But I also will not defend him when he errs.

    Even if it hair lips the governor.

    This says it all. NEVER solutions. Just ramblings about Romo.

    Well, I must admit all the E-Lie love around here was toned way way down this year. But the E-Lie Love Club can still point to the RINGS.

    Even tho we just saw in this Super Bowl how important the overall team is to winning. Seattle wins big with a mediocre QB and the Broncos get embarrassed with a QB many consider one of the best of all time. It takes a team and while a QB can elevate the team, he still cant do it all by himself.

    Those numbers point out the fact that we put too much on him to win. We never allow the team to win and make it so Romo pretty much feels the pressure to win it on his own and you see the miscues that result.

    Until we learn it is okay for Romo to have a 17-20, 165 yards and a TD performance because the rest of the team did their jobs, we have to get used to the one or two games a year where he is going to make the crucial mistake.
