    OK, let's replace Romo with what was before him....a Q Carter, Testaverde, Bledsoe.

    Thank JJ for that... Only JJ would try to recycle bum qbs. Also Since Troy Aikman was establish the starter for the Cowboys they have only used one pick in the top 60 pick on a qb !!! One in 20 years !!!! Dallas has never drafted a qb in the first round since Troy Aikman and Quincy Carter was ill advise JJ pick.

    Wow, some have no idea what it takes. It is a team game and Romo's INTs count against his stats but have lots of other players fingerprints on them.

    Stats really don't tell the whole story. Tony isn't the problem with the Cowboys offense like many have said in this thread, the issue is he is expected to do too much. We don't have a running game, and honestly I'm not sure we have a running back on the roster that can get it done. I question if Murray has the durability and the vision to be a consistently good Rb for years. Our offensive line stinks, 4 out of 5 lineman just aren't good enough and need replaced. Finally, we still have players on this team who don't know what to do after breaking the huddle, that comes down to coaching. There are many issues with our Cowboys, Tony Romo isn't even close to the biggest issue.

    That's why Wilson's comment struck me as funny. The team passer rating was 68.2 to Ogletree/Beasley/Harris, and 95.5 to everyone else.

    According to basically every stat I have seen and that is available, Romo is top 10....

    for career Quarterback passer ratings, Romo is #5 with a 95.6 rating (#2 is Steve Young with 96.8, 1.2 point difference)

    Last year, Romo threw 28 TDs and 19 ints,
    if you took away 3 games (Chicago, NYG 2nd matchup, and Washington last game) Romo would have thrown 24 TDs and 7 ints

    so yeah he had three bad games in which were against tough defense in chicago as well as a couple divisional matchups....

    There are tons and tons more stats you can look up and you will find your observation of Romo as nothing more than aggravation and not the truth.

    Everything points to a team in need of repair. Romo was the reason we were even in position to win in several games last year

    this post right here says it all and is the truth with the exception that I believe Murray is the man with the problem with him being is that he doesn't have the benefit of having an oline that can make running lanes for him.

    still is aggravating to see Romo have to point out to players where they need to be, when to go in motion, and he even has to point out where blitzes will be coming from and to break the route short due to it.

    "Trying to do too much on his own" is another way of saying he/she gave it his or her best try but failed miserably.

    Don't want to hear excuses about Tony no more. No sir!
    All I want from tony is execution (not him, the game plan), sound judgment and cutting back on bonehead plays at crucial moments of crucial games.

    Trying to do too much is the newspeak for failure, I am sorry to say.
    You never here of a consistently successful person trying to do too much on his own, I might ad.

    No.

    No it does not come close to saying that. Those are your words, not his.


    As for Romo trying to do to much at times? I agree. Sometimes it ends up being a spectacular success (many games) and sometimes (see Chicago game) the very opposite of that. Few make somethng from nothing better than Romo, so it's a hard balance to find. Maybe if he wasn't running for his life 2 out of every 3 plays he may not feel the need to to do much becasue he'd feel confident that he'd have planty more chances.

    Yes, my words. Glad you caught that. How could you not?
    Now you give our lad Tony another excuse, running for his life. Yes, I think there is validity to that. Still, the excuses rain like . . . rain. Trying to do too much, no running game, lack of an O-line, play calling. There are a million of excuses out there.
    Unfortunately, the enablers are many, the excuses are many and the playoff wins are few. The bottom line rules, not your affable way of looking at our OH NO manchild called Tony Romo.

    Damn, I'm good.

    for what?? taking a fact that Romo has not gotten to the superbowl with the Cowboys, and so anyone who gives reasons, other than the ONLY ONE YOU WANNA SEE (that it is Romo's fault), are just, how did you put it? - "enabling" or making up excuses for our "oh no manchild" Tony Romo"?

    How about the truth that lies underneath your rhetoric, and that is that you hold the opinion that it is Romo's fault and somehow everyone who doesn't share that opinion is making excuses why they don't hold that same universal truth according to you and are just in denial....

    I guess many of us forgot to look you up before we post such drivel....






    Disclaimer: I post this as a reply, not as an insult. I appreciate other people's opinions, and I mean no disrespect. Just stating the fact that we all have opinions.

    Also, failed miserably is true. That Skins game was a bad game for Romo.
    It was uninspired by him. And that last, gosh-darned pass off balance into the blind left side of the field: That one pass ended the season. An 8-8 season at that. Had we gone 12-4 it would have been Romo's great season. but it was 8-8 and that is Romo's miserable season.
    An 8-8, in any other team, you'd have panic and a FA frenzy. Not in Dallas. We celebrate mediocrity by long-terming players and, aside from coaches, keeping the status quo. I dont know what status quo means but i think it is like keeping things as they are. And that be bad.

    Man, an agenda is blinding.

    Romo is somewhere between Rex Grossman and Peyton Manning....some of you are trying to make it seem like he's another Grossman or elite QB. He's a pretty good quarterback - definitely not elite.

    On the list of things that need fixing, Romo is not on the short list at this time.

    Romo is a middle of the pack QB. Nothing more and nothing less.
