    The issue with Romo isn't the entire fourth quarter. It's at the very end of the fourth quarter. Where's that stat about most interceptions in the final four minutes of a close game?

    It was great revisiting this thread and not because I like Tony Romo. It's because it has great give and take with no cheap shot drive-by remarks -- it's substance over style.

    Because a guy like Percy has the passion and discipline to provide this type of comprehensive insight while guys like Calvin Watkins GET PAID as part of a career choice they made and virtually mail their stuff in providing no context or insight.

    Because It's a credit to the Zone in general and Percy specifically that we understand more about the most important player on the field for us today than we knew yesterday.

    Because it's posts like this why welcome here.

    Same criteria but change the entire fourth quarter to just the last six minutes.

    177-285 (62.1%), 2052 yards, 13 TD, 12 INT, 81.5 rating

    Same criteria as above but only for the last four games of the season:

    43-71 (60.6%), 525 yards, 4 TD, 5 INT, 72.8 rating

    Score differential between -8 and 0, last six minutes of the game, last four games of the season:

    37-61 (60.7%), 408 yards, 3 TD, 4 INT, 69.6 rating (24th of 40 for QBs with 30 or more such attempts)

    And in the last 5 minutes how many times did he get us the lead only to have our D fold? Put aikman, staubauch, Marino,elway, favre in there... how many times did the get a lead late in the game more than once?

    Til then you're ****tin up a stupid hole.
