    After "Project Dez", we're gonna get a 'Project Smith', 'Project Murray', 'Project Romo', ect; right? That'd be rude to leave us hanging after only one. :p

    Let's get out the smallest violin in the world for little Tony, nothing is ever his fault.

    I dunno man. This one is killing me. I really wanted to know, definitively, where Dez stands, but lost a lot of motivation once I realized just how large the project was. So a quarter of the way through I made the sig for accountability-- have to finish it now.

    If I do others, I won't take on a project quite as large.

    Yeah, I hear what you're saying. I honestly don't know what they are thinking and you could be right. We are going on the 9th year though and the outcomes have been similar for a while now.

    I think this whole thread is a joke. Romo says he will get better in the future??

    Think about this rationally. A 34 year old choke artist QB with a fused spine and little arm strength left. And he really thinks he'll get better?

    What you see is what you get with Romo. And unfortunately, you'll be getting less and less until retirement.

    There are some extenuating circumstances with the back surgery.

    But you may want to think this through.

    There are many ways a 34 year old QB can get better. Ask Peyton Manning--who had the best year of his career last year even though the physically was not at his best. Favre had one of his best seasons in his late 30s. Warner too.
    They improved the mental part of their game and some minor physical things.

    Doesn't have a fused spine. If he did, he wouldn't be coming back to football. I believe it was a discectomy.

    What we see is good enough from him, he does his part.

    It has always been the defense. Was last year, the year before as it will be this year. This should be the focus, not the QB who has done his part.

    Quite frankly all of stupidity arguing about Romo is funny when we have a crap defense. This is the problem? Has been the problem for a long, long time.

    So tired of saying QBs like Flacco, Eli, Big Ben are better than him. They aren't. Let Romo have their top 10 defense and see what happens. And for the record eli had a defense that gave up an average of 14 points in two Super Bowl runs because I know someone going to say that the Giants defense wasn't top 10.

    And he may have had higher ranked defenses in 2007 and 2009, but that was his 2nd & 3rd year starting. That has been a long, long time ago.

    So will this be the first year in forever that the Defense does it's part?

    In the end we are all supposed to be Cowboys fans, I just wish that all of us were all on the same page and just root this QB on....

    When he grows up, before the age of 40 Tony Romo wants to be better, like Andrew Luck...and he will be, it might take a while b-b-b-but... just squat and watch! Right around the same time Jerry will Officially become a Football Guy.

    Peyton is a cerebral QB. Romo is a well known choke artist that can't even make the playoffs. He isn't going to get any better.

    Again, Romo is mentioned in the same sentence (and in an elite level) as Peyton and Brady.

    Forget me if i am wrong, but Peyton and Brady half led their teams to Super Bowl wins.
    Please tell me when Romo has led his team to anything in the postseason.
    And it would be so nice to compare Romo to good QBs who half not been successful in the postseason.

    Until romo wleads his team to a second postseason game , he's just another Danny White without the charisma but with an oversized payday.
    Sorry to get rough with you but you Romo acolytes just make me so angry!!!!!!!!

    The topic was INTs and my response was solely in response to that. It wasn't a comparison of the elite QBs in the league. Not going to get into a debate about being elite and winning SBs.

    Why don't we discuss how many of those game winning drives came against teams with winning records? Oh, there is really nothing to discuss there now is it? Do you want to discuss the massive meltdowns against the better teams in this league? We could talk all night about those. If it is a win or go home game or a Primetime game on the big stage, Romo hasn't had much success . There is a reason for these bad feelings against the better teams. It is because Romo hasn't been able pull off comebacks against quality teams. There is a good reason for the 19 comebacks. The other teams were not that good. You should really study the game more so you can understand that top QBs thrive in big games and the pressure that comes with them. Top QBs may not win all of these big games, but they are not in the habit of giving the games away with turnovers in the final few minutes. That is why Romo is not a top tier QB and at this stage of his career, he is not going to change .

    I haven't looked at that data but if true it only confirms that it's a team game. Check the stats out on any QB playing with a team not as good as the other one and see what you get.

    Of course it will be lower than playing teams worse than you.

    Man, Romo haters are a riot. They will move the goalposts all over the field until the argument looks good... but even that doesn't last long. Pretty soon they will be breaking this down to game winning drives against 16-0 teams in 32 degree or below temps.

    I looked up the records for all of your heroes and guess what? All of their comebacks have come against teams with mostly losing records. So it's back to the drawing board for you again.
