So, if Ratliff comes back would you put him on the trade block?
I would put just about any Cowboys player on the trading block at any time if the offered trade value is high enough. Right now, though, I don't think Ratliff would be worth much in a trade. If a team made an unexpectedly high offer for Ratliff, I think it would be a good idea, but otherwise, no.
Man, I'd almost take a 5th and down if it meant we didn't have to keep overpaying him to wince on the sideline.
You used to babble about elimination games now you've added "significant spotlighted games" so you can add the Bronco's game to your short list.
You call out the '11 opening season game but that doesn't fit significant unless significant means it was on NBC. Had it been on FOX at 1 it wouldn't count in your mind, right?
So this! Thank you.
His main two tactics are cherry-picking and moving the goalposts.
The Jets game in 2011 was a Nationally televised game in NY on the 10 year anniversary of 911. That was a "spotlighted game."
I use facts not tactics. So you've seen no evidence that would even suggest that Romo has trouble dealing with pressure situations in spotlighted games?
Subjectivity of this sort is virtually pointless. You make it sound as if a quarterback playing on a FOX-televised game at 1 PM, in front of a televised audience of 10,000,000 viewers, in front of 70,000 roaring fans in the stadium, playing against a 5-3 opponent, is under significantly less pressure than a quarterback playing on an NBC-televised game at 8:30 PM, in front of a televised audience of 20,000,000 viewers, in front of 80,000 roaring fans in a stadium, against a 6-2 opponent.
Some games carry more pressure than others. The games that have carried the most pressure Romo has 12 turnovers. That 911 game in NY commemorating the 10th anniversary of that tragedy was a "spotlighted game" you really want to argue that?
Playoff/elimination games. Any win or go home game is going to carry the most pressure.
Most games are.
Most games are what? Some games carry more pressure than others you actually want to argue that?
2007, primetime, after a horrific game, down 8 with 3:45 to play, leads team to late victory to start the season 5-0.
2009, primetime, vs the 13-0 NO Saints. Up one score with 8 to play. 10 play, 5:44 second drive to get the team in position to try and make it a 2 score game late.
2011, primetime, defense surrendered a 12 point lead late, 48 seconds left, no timeouts, down 3 at the Cowboys 20. Definition of pressure situation. Gets the team in position to tie the game.
Just off the top of my head. Varying levels of competition and pressure all with everyone watching.
Just kick that deadskin butt and worry about the next 6 games later.
In 07 he led the team to a come from behind win vs a crappy Buffalo team in week 4.
The 09 Saints game the Cowboys had the lead from start to finish.
The 2011 prime-time game the Cowboys defense lost that game. In the season finale a few weeks later against NY with a playoff birth on the line Romo missed a wide open Dez early in the game that would have resulted in a big play. Romo also had 2 turnovers and the game ended with Romo being strip sacked. A troubling number of games have ended with him suffering a turnover.
Holding the lead from start to finish is the whole point.
The Rams are not the Bills.
I was referring to the week 5 game vs Buffalo but you know that.
