    No way the Cowboys would have won by 14 had Romo played that game probably would have ended exactly the same way based on his elimination game history. They barely squeaked by a 3 win Washington team a week earlier 24-23 that was playing with their backup QB and had given up on the season. Orton had a Romo type game vs Philly putting up 358 yards, 2 TD's and completed 65.2% of his passes and the game ended in Romo fashion with an int in the final minutes. In the first game vs Philly Foles was HORRIBLE he only completed 37% of his passes and had a passer rating of 46.2. He couldn't hit the broadside of a barn that day missing wide open receivers. He short hopped an open receiver in the end zone that would have gotten Philly back in the game. After he got injured Matt Barkley came in and was even worse than Foles. He threw 3 int's and ended with a passer rating of 35.2. Between Foles and Barkley that was some of the worse quarterbacking I had seen all season and the Cowboys only won by 14 points.

    Philly is an improving team with a solid HC. I'm not completely sold on Foles but if he picks up where he left off last season Philly will be in business at QB for a number of years. Philly could be a 10-12 win team in 2014. Just about everyone is picking them to win the East and some have the Cowboys coming in last. The Cowboys season will all come down to Romo's health/performance and how the defense plays. With Romo coming off back surgery the Cowboys will be walking on egg shells with him this summer fearing a setback. It's going to be interesting to see if they're going to hold him back in camp and play him much in preseason. There's a possibility he may not be sharp entering the season and the Cowboys have a very tough opening game vs SF. Looking at the schedule anything worse than a 2-1 start is going to have the Cowboys scrambling to stay in the playoff hunt by week 15.

    One has to assume the cloak of the actor at the point the playoffs are started. Past records are no more part of the caculations. From that start point, player's roles and effectiveness come into play on the scoreboard...not multiple computer generated statistics. How else do the Giants take one from the NFC leading Cowboys?

    Don't use stats and then use people excuses.
