I can say I'm faster than Usain Bolt but that does not make it so.
I know right. I have heard on countless occasions that QBs prefer crappy OLs and running games.
I see as little reason to disparage Ryan as I do Romo.
They both won a single home playoff game. The fact Romo's was first round and Ryan's was second round is meaningless.
Elway won a super bowl when
A) He had the defense
B) He had the running game
C) He had the weapons on offense
D) He had the right circumstances (i.e. Didn't have to beat the Cowboys, 49ers in the super bowl, he got passed Pittsburgh and that was it).
If Romo had a good coach like Mike Smith, and that good of an offensive line in front of him, he would be a Super Bowl winning QB by now.
Ryan is a good QB. He's not better than Romo at all.
Actually, it's 1-4, but your point is well taken.
If you google "win or go home romo" you get more than 500 relevant search results.
Try the same thing with "win or go home ryan" and the only relevant result is this thread.
I certainly try to avoid having conversations with those who have clearly decided to be anti-Romo no matter what.
But I will say that it surprises me how hard some Cowboy fans work to make sure Romo gets torn down. "Well Ryan's recent loss was in the NFC Chamionship game" or whatever. They are determined to cling to whatever can show our QB in a bad light.
Precisely... it was a term created by the media for Romo only because his playoff record wasn't bad enough. You will never find a reference to another quarterback and the statistic, and you never heard the term before Romo either.
I would still go with ryan! At least he gets his team to the playoffs!
Several on a Falcons message board are calling him "Matty Melt".
Yay! Let's celebrate the fact that Romo isn't the only one who sucks in big games!
Does that make some of you feel better?
They both have exactly 1 career playoff win. Stop treating "bye weeks" as Ws, you sound like Wade.
And FYI.....Romo has also taken this team to the playoffs 3 times already (2006, 2007, 2009)..........Google is your friend, use it.
Or the Cowboys
Ryan is easily a far better QB than Romo. More accurate, more arm strength.
I'm done arguing with know-nothings about Tony Romo, but I will say that "Matty Ice" gave himself that nickname
They had too many turnovers (both on Ryan), not a strong enough running game, and poor defense. Just look at what the Ravens defense did to Brady.
We need a running game and a turnover oriented defense and it looks like we're moving in that direction:
They fired the running backs coach. At first I thought huh. But then I thought what a lot of people have mentioned our running backs start out good and go down hill after being here. Now if they can build up the offensive line we could be much improved.
For turnovers I think Kiffin and Marinelli are perfect. Just look at what the bears did last year. And it looks like Marinelli will be coaching our best pass rusher in Ware. When you watched the Ravens defense the thing to note was when New England was doing all of it's hurry up stuff They mostly kept the same unit on the field and had Ray Lewis make the calls. From what I understand that's how Kiffin likes to play it also. And we have the smart middle linebacker that should know the defense inside and out to get them lined up in Lee.
All in all things are looking a lot better already and we haven't even had the draft or free agency yet.
not at all, the further you go in the playoffs, the better the team you face, the more the win means.
A lot of the reason I defend Romo is that the "choke artist" labels are typically applied by idiots who have been wrongfully entrusted with statistics - the ones who think that sample size refers to the miniature cup they give you at Ben and Jerry's to try their new Wet Dog In A Muddy River flavor.
I'll defend Ryan on the same basis. He's the 4th-best quarterback in the league. A few game results plucked out of the air mean practically nothing.
