    Only ignorant fans and media say Romo's the reason why Dallas can't win. He's a very, very good QB more than capable of leading a team to the Super Bowl. His problem is that he's forced to try to do too much because of crappy defenses and some questionable play calling and clock management.

    Also in 2 of 3 win or go home week 17 games that Romo has played in the last 3 years, 4 interceptions.














    But that's none of my business

    Its easy to blame Romo. He can be replaced. Unlike the real reason the Cowboys can not win anymore.

    The only reason that we were in that position in the first place was Romo.

    He's only had a top 10 defense one time (2009) - same year we won a playoff game.




    But that's none of my business.

    This is where I'll agree. I'm a big Romo critic, but this is the reason for lack of success.

    Well... 2007 saw another top 10 defense with a vastly better defensive passer rating than '09 (one of the most important stats). But one could say that 07 secondary fell apart in the playoffs.

    But other than that, the Cowboys have been pathetic on defense.

    The last pass that Romo threw was a game winning touchdown in an otherwise win-or-go-home game Week 16 against Washington.

    Blaming the failures on Romo is like putting all the blame for a bad economy solely on a president.

    It takes no thought, knowledge, or effort.

    Romo is part of the team he shares in the wins and loses. Is he the sole reason? No If Dallas does win a championship while he is here he will not be the sole reason we win. No matter what era of football you are talking it still takes a team to acomplish a team goal such as championships.

    The giants were incredibly lucky in that last game of the season. If I remember right, they fumbled 3 times and each time the ball just bounced right to a Giants player.

    I don't honestly see how anybody can trust Romo with a lead. I can't remember the exact stat-line, but when the team is up by a TD or less and has been in the lead for the majority of the game...his stat-line stinks in the last 10 minutes. If we are coming from behind, that's when he plays well.

    So having a good defense would certainly help, but I still wouldn't trust him to hold a lead because he's blown leads with boneheaded decisions and bad throws before.

    And to me, there was absolutely no reason to extend his contract to the extent Dallas did. I think there is a large fallacy that he's a 'young 34 years old.' When you get older, your body doesn't recover as quickly. Extending his contract and thinking he'll play well beyond 35 years old is just foolish.

    I don't think Tony has been helped with the porous defense, questionable at best O-Line (they did have some good years) and I think Garrett was probably as bad of a coach for him as we could have ended up with. But, he's not an elite QB and he's made his fair share of bad mistakes that he has nobody to blame but himself.

    Romo has the highest QB rating in the fourth quarter in NFL history.

    I'm not that into stats, but that's pretty amazing.

    Jerry Jones in previous offseasons, barring this one, gave veterans stupid contracts for what they had done as opposed to what they were going to do, which led to having a collection of players who either were too tired to compete by the end of the season or were sitting on the sidelines in win or go home games nursing injuries...

    Obligatory - But that's none of my business.

    Typical nonsense...if the Cowboys are up by a TD or less, Romo and the offense is the one's that took them there. The defense cannot force a friggen punt the whole game yet the team is still trying to win a game. Romo throws a pick...the Cowboys lose. Yeah, Romo cannot be trusted...?

    But, that's none of my business.
