    This board is pretty delusional but I bet people would start thinking romo was a better QB than marino if romo won a superbowl when in reality marino > romo and it's not even close unless you're a new generation fan. Oh how I wish I knew what numbers marino would post in todays NFL rule.

    It was a response to your lame attempt to answer the question posed. If the question had been who has more rings, you would have answered correctly. However, that wasnt the question, even tho you attempted to answer the question posed with the "ring" myth argument.

    It's their careers not one game. Too many here live in the moment. A few weeks ago a lot of fans were done with Romo wanting him traded after the season.

    Eli's career isn't helping him get into the playoffs, and neither is his 81.6 rating in December.

    Perfect example why Eli has rings and Romo does not? Romo today and vs NY last year has combined for 74 passes, 47 completions, 8 TDs, no INTs, no fumbles. Result two losses. Only the ignorant think supporting cast does not matter.

    How do their postseason QB ratings compare?

    As opposed to comparing rings, postseason QB rating is probably the most important datapoint to compare QBs on.

    What does Eli's postseason QB rating look like?

    His "career" which consists of an 8-3 playoff record with 2 SB wins and 2 SB MVP awards is helping him get into the Hall of Fame. The last time Eli and Romo went head to head Romo tossed 4 picks. No threads like this claiming Romo was better were started after that game.

    I've never thought Eli was better than Romo and never will. Eli has had the good fortune to be on better teams, especially defensively. Both are good, but I'll take Romo every time. He just offers more.

    That doesn't mean Eli is better than Romo RIGHT NOW. The past is irrelevant. Romo is is the better QB this season and it's not close.

    Summed up perfectly, stats are great if your Dan Marino, but Trent Dilfer still has the bling and I'm willing to bet that Marino trades all his stats for that ring and mediocre career. I'll still go with Eli being the better qb just because when it mattered most he didn't make the mistakes that helped them lose. Romo plays on a team that made a lot of mistakes when it mattered but he did too.

    For Romo its an unknown so its futile to make any attempt to use it as a comparison.

    Exactly. It's beyond obvious to anyone who has any clue about QBing and the game of football in general. I've been watchnig football for almost 40 years and seen many great QBs. Without hesitation, I would tell people Romo is a great QB. I would not say that Eli is great by any stretch of the imagination. The Cowboys lost today despite a near flawless performance by Romo. He didn't drop passes or fumble inside his own 5. He doesn't play on a defense that couldn't force one turnover. He simply, as he has done for most of his career, played QB at an extremely high level. The QB is not the sole determinant of a team's success. It's a TEAM game. SBs are TEAM accomplishments. Ask Dilfer, Johnson, Hostetler, etc.
    Oh and, by the way, Romo is as clutch as anyone in the game today. The nonsense "choker" label couldn't be more incorrect.

    Putting up big numbers every week isn't a big deal QB's do it every Sunday it's par for the course today. It's all about the number of playoff wins and championships.

    Eli was really clutch today and last week and the last five weeks when his defense was giving up an average of 30 points per game. I thought he won games all by himself with his clutch play.

    In their playoff runs they never gave up an average of more than 17.

    Funny how that works.
