    Football is a team sport genius. Romo needs a defense that can make the opposing team punt and not score on every single drive. He also needs a defense that doesn't fold every time the offense scores and that can actually hold a lead in the 4th quarter.

    You're right, football is a team sport. Jay Cutler and Tony Romo both play for teams. Jay Cutler was on a team that advanced further into the playoffs than Tony Romo's teams.

    The problem I have with what you just said is that both Romo lovers and Romo haters use the "team" argument to prove their point. If the Cowboys lose, it's because of Romo according to the haters, and because of the team according to the lovers. If they win, it's because of Romo according to the lovers, and the team according to the haters.

    I'm simply trying to be objective here. Yes, there were times when certain defensive players contributed to the loss. But there have also been times when Tony Romo has contributed to a loss, and that right there, is a massive understatement.

    Tony Romo is a better QB than Jay Cutler. That's all that really matters, IMHO.

    no you are not being objective. Because outside of Romo haters find someone with credibility that would take Cutler over Romo.

    Except for the fact Romo has been consistently better than Cutler during the entirety of his career.

    I would take neither. I want success, not a heart felt victory in September.

    Most people by now have seen the dumpster fire that is our pass defense the past 4 years and can tell the reason we don't have wins is not Tony Romo.

    Romo has more career wins at 63, Cutler has 56. Cutler also has 3 more losses. Next.

    How many does Cutler have? The same amount.

    I am not saying Romo is Brady, but he is better than Cutler.

    fwiw

    I think this QB contract derby has gotten out of hand.
    Cutler, Romo, Stafford, Ryan....all overpaid in various degrees.
    If there was no slary cap, that'd be one thing. But the guarenteed portions of theses deals--which is all that really matters--is really prohibitive.

    Cutler is already first in passing yards with the Bears. It isn't that great of an accomplishment. The Bear team record was and is under 15,000 yards(Cutler right now with 14,913 yds). That is a very low total no matter what era of the NFL. Dallas has 5 QBs with more than that(Meredith 17,199 yds, Staubach 22,700 yds, White 21,959 yds, Aikman 32,942 yds and Romo 29,565 yds)

    Not that any of those Bear accomplishments really matter. Romo will be the team record holder for all those same stats with Dallas.

    Romo has more wins than Cutler and a better winning percentage.

    Romo in 108 starts is 63-45 or 58.33%.

    Cutler in 104 starts is 56-48 or 53.85%.

    Romo has a higher completion percentage, higher touchdown percentage, lower interception percentage, higher average yards per attempt, higher average yards per completion, more passing yards, more TDs, less interceptions and a higher passer rating. There is a stat called the "adjusted net yards gained per pass attempt". It takes into account yards, TDs, interceptions, the number of times sacked and the yards lost to sacks. Romo has a ANY/A of 6.96 while Culter has a 5.84.

    Exactly and that's what erks me about some Cowboys fans, always quick to ridicule someone else when we in fact have done similar moves.

    Romo, Cutler and Ryan are all about the same.Romo may be a little bitter but not that much.

    So by that logic, what Adrian Peterson is doing isn't very impressive since the Vikings haven't had any good running backs before him.

    I'm not a Romo hater. But jeeze, say anything but praise for the guy and it's like throwing a piece of meat into a shark tank...

    My points are far more objective than the notion that "no one outside of Romo haters would take Jay Cutler over Tony"

    Romo and Jay Cutler have been consistently mediocre during their entire careers. They aren't that much different from one another which is my whole point...people are saying this is the stupidest deal in Bears history when we just signed a guy to a similar contract, who's 4 years older, and the same amount of post season victories.
