Well Sanchez just sucks. Drew Brees is a high profile QB.
Yep, that's why Brees gets a pass.
I find that most analysts who actually played the position and understands QB play best are generally supportive of Romo. Phil Simms, Steve Young, Trent Dilfer come to mind. The most intelligent players were generally QB's. Joe Theismann is an exception.
Once you get to other analysts however is when the idiocy begins. Marshall Faulk, Keyshawn Johnson, Warren Sapp and many others make up this group. You don't see very many non-QB's supportive of him. Micheal Irvin is, but he's a blatant Cowboys homer so I don't count him.
For whatever reason, most of these clowns would rather have all their wisdom teeth yanked without an anesthetic than to give any props to Romo. That carries through to the fanbase, as the earlier poster showed.
It is hard to take sometimes. I generally can't watch NFL Network or ESPN anymore. I turn on the TV when the game starts.
Yep, that's what I do too. It's just ridiculous.
They are stuck with Sanchez in fact the Jets are Royaly screwed if they cut Sanchez they take a 17 million cap hit they can not afford if they had not extended him only a 2.5 million. The Jets will have to keep him around maybe as a backup most likely one more year they guaranteed him 20.5million on the extension
The Jets GM should be fired as soon as the season ends.
Even if The Cowboys win the SB in February,there will still be people criticizing Tony Romo for one reason or another :banghead:
ESPN has an agenda where the Cowboys/Romo are concerned and the network sticks to it no matter what...
I let people have it when I hear:
1) "Dallas is one of the most talented teams in the league"
2) "Romo chokes in the big games" or "in December" or "in crunch time"
Stupidity from the media, and when asked for particulars, they can only mention maybe 5 top players and only remember the Seattle playoff game or maybe some other game they vaguely recall.
It was like that even in the 90s....3 Super Bowls weren't enough to get the respect of ESPN. :espn:
Because its the Dallas Cowboys. Danny white went thru this.
Drew Brees > Tony Romo.
You will see Sunday.
I have to bring this up every year until my son "graduates" from pre-K.
Drew Brees was born in Dallas, grew up a Cowboy fan, and went to the same day care and pre-K as my son Adam. Some of the older teachers there still remember "baby Drew Brees". Brees then moved to Austin in 1986 and ended up at Westlake.
I know, old news for some of you all, but I still get a kick out of it.
Love Phil Simms. Funny how a Cowboy fan like myself loves an old Giant, but hates Troy as an announcer. Yet every Giant's fan I talk to hates Phil and loves Troy.
I thought Drew was born in Austin, not Dallas.
Still probably grew up as a Cowboys fan though, doubt he was a Saints fan.
He became a Saints fan when he got that first big check. hahaha
If only Drew Brees had been a Cowboy, then what?
Phil Simms is a clown.
Super Bowl 44:
"If I was the New Orleans Saints I would not blitz"
FFW to Tracy Porter running back a pick 6.
Shut up Phil Simms.
I don't have a problem with Troy but most Saints fans do. They hate Joe Buck too.
Born in Dallas. Jan 15, 1979.
He even talks about it in the Dallas Morning News today.
For some reason Wikipedia posts his birthplace as Austin, but that's clearly incorrect, by about 7 years.
Quote from Brees:
"I mean, Dallas was kind of my team growing up" he said. "I was born in Dallas and moved to Austin in 1986. We won a state championship in Texas Stadium my senior year in 1996. I remember that Dallas heyday in the 1990's with Troy and the guys".
Everybody outside of baseball hates Joe Buck.
Aikman has more rings than Brees will ever have. Aikman would not have been given a pass for 5 INTs.
ETA: I don't think Aikman ever had a game where he threw 5 picks though, so that's just conjecture based on media hatred of the Cowboys.
