    I must admit I haven't been the biggest Romo supporter. And my two biggest offseason gripes were extending Romo and Franchising Spencer. But for some strange reason this year seems different. I feel like Romo's play has carried this team. And he's taken on a bigger leadership role. So I look forward to the next four games. And I hope Romo can shed the Greek tragedy label.

    That says plenty. Perhaps its time to move on and find something else to gripe about.

    Romo isnt sucking me in. He just showing hes a great QB like he does every year.

    I'm a big Romo fan but I still haven't forgave him after the Washington game from last year.

    I just don't always trust him because he will put a dagger in your chest.


    With that said he is pretty much all we got because our defense sucks, our coaching sucks, and the offense plays with zero urgency if the game is close or we have a lead.

    Yep.

    Without Romo we wouldn't even be playing for anything in December.

    Sucking me in?
    No
    For the last several years Romo has been the least of the teams problems.

    I always have trusted Romo to put in a solid year, and he always has. Typically he has good to very good games on a week-to-week basis. I do not trust this defense to bail him out in the event of a bad game.

    no, he may be sucking you in, whatever that in you are referring to. In my opinion he is a great QB always have been and always will be. He always needed or needs his teammates to elevate their play along with his. I'll take Romo over any QB in the NFL right now

    What about Demarcus Ware? Is he sucking you in again? He's been here through all these failures as well. He needs to step it up in December and dominate. I feel sorry for both Ware and Romo having to put up with mediocrity around them.

    I'm not really fazed either way because I evaluate things from a season-long perspective. Unless we miraculously win the Super Bowl, our season will probably end in a performance where we are thoroughly outmatched and Romo will take part of the fall for that regardless of how he plays. Really best not to analyze it much past that... Romo will be the QB going forward either way, and I'm glad for that.

    Bill parcells had a press conference in Dallas. Where he told the press that they were getting sucked in.

    I noticed there's a new trend of people backing off the Romo hate, apparently that media led foolishness has run its course.

    Have/will you forgive Jason Hatcher for his bone-headed roughing penalty on RG III in that same game?

    Yes because he isn't a repeat offender.

    I haven't been able to forgive the coaching staff and Romo for having a game plan that got us beat by a team that couldn't use the forward pass.

    The middle of the field was open the entire game and good ole Jason just kept attacking those sidelines.

    Regardless, it shouldn't have came down to week 17 with the way our QB played overall for that season.

    He played well enough where we should've had 10-11 wins easily ... but nope. I'm not excluding Romo from blame for his week 17 performance either though, he played terrible. But I'm also not going to fault the guy for us missing the playoffs when he carried a injury decimated 3-5 team to get to that point, when we really had no business being in that situation.

    Yep
    And yes Romo had a bad game. Odd how that some forget the previous 5 games leading up to that one.

    But back to the actual game:
    • No Run game...at all.
    • Busted ribs
    • Terrible protection
    • Completely out-coached gameplan-wise
    • Road division game with loud crowd, vs a red-hot team
    • No Lee and No Carter
    • basically No Ware
    then down the stretch:
    • No Dez
    • No Harris
    • No Austin
    • No Beasley

    Completely and totally stacked odds that almost nobody can or ever has overcome.
    I really would like for someone to name one QB who has ever overcome those odds and won in that situation.
    Yet some still point to that game.

    I felt that Romo has been more of a leader since 2011. Unfortunately he keeps trying to play down being a 'vocal leader.' I don't think that's the best tact to handle it. I think when you're a leader you need to make it clearly known that you are the leader. Still, I prefer the leadership qualities from 2011 and on versus the 'that's okay that you made your 3rd false start of the game, we'll get 'em next time' attitude.

    I think he's stepped it up in the last 2 games. His footwork has been better. He's moving around more in the pocket and in particular, stepping up into the pocket. I think he made a mistake by trying to emulate Brady and Peyton so much. He doesn't have their height or throwing motion. They can hang back in the pocket. He needs to be more like Brees that steps up and side-to-side.

    I do worry about his age. His velocity on his passes is noticeably less. Particularly when he throws from the opposite hash mark. And I just feel when guys get old they tend to run in spurts and eventually those spurts become less and less. He wasn't that good in the first half of 2012, but was excellent in the 2nd half of the year. This year he wasn't that great for the first 10 games, now he looks like he'll turn it on for the last 6 games.

    I just can't help but think we may see him be sluggish for the first 12 games in 2014 and play well the last 4 games. And eventually it will be few and far between.

    If Jerry is smart, he trades down to acquire more picks and gets a QB in the late 1st or 2nd round. Let's that QB develop for at least 1 year and hopefully we can create a seamless transition from Romo to the new QB.

    Of course, that will take foresight on Jerry's part. Not so sure he has that in him.
