He had a good defense and offensive line against the Chiefs... what happened in that game?
You mean besides throwing for almost 300 yards, completing 71 percent of his passes and throwing a TD with no interceptions?
Did you forget his fumble where he tried to set his feet to throw the ball when he KNEW he had 2 defenders right on him? And ignoring his WR at the goal line in a one on one matchup with a corner he owned all day? Or how about the 1 yard passes on 3rd and 10 to Witten? Or the other missed opportunities? Tony played his role in us losing that game. Meanwhile Alex Smith played solid ball.
Including his own?
it is hilarious sometimes to read ufcrules. his obsession with hating romo gets him into some really silly posts. Smith better than Romo? If he really believes that then his football IQ is right about room temperature. I really doubt he means that - but his hatred of Romo is so intense that if forces him into posts like that.
I like Romo and think he is a very good QB. I have seen him do some great things and seen him do some things that make me say ***! I never feel the need to justify liking him or thinking he is a good QB though, to fans of other teams or to fans of this team. Is he great? Well he has great stats and if he wants a Dan Fouts career that'll be good enough for him, I think right now he is good enough and right now that's all that really matters. I'll call him great after he gets a ring.
Nobody said Alex Smith didn't play solid ball.
He isn't a better QB than Romo.
And LOL at your attempt to point out what you consider to be mistakes made by Romo. Really? He tried to set his feet? That's what you're complaining about?
It's a team game. Some folks seemingly like to gloss over the mistakes of others...while focusing on Romo's.
Also in the Chiefs game, Allen and Carter dropped easy Int's, Dez had a big drop, etc. All mistakes play a part in a loss.
Even going back to playoff losses.....
- Many focused on Romo's botched hold vs. the Seahawks...yet forget about Glenn's fumble for a safety...a 2 point difference in a 1-point loss. Romo threw zero Int's in his first playoff start...while vet Matt Hasselbeck threw 2 Int's that led to 6 points for the Cowboys. Yet, the Seahawks still won.
- Against the Giants, some focus on the Int at the end of the game on 4th down. But they forget the drive Romo engineered to open the 2nd half that used the first 8:07 of the 3rd quarter, but resulted in 3 points after a false start and dropped TD forced them to settle for a FG. That's a 4 point difference in a 4 point loss. There was also Crayton giving up on his route, sloppy tackling on D & ST's, and the 11 penalties.
Using another example of a team game: Many blame Denver's safety for blowing the game vs. the Ravens, and he certainly had a part in it. But Manning turned the ball over 3 times in the game. They also lost despite special teams contributing 2 TD's on kick returns to aid the scoring.
Trying to set your feet and throw down field when you have 2 guys about to nail you is just asking for trouble.. and that is exactly what happened. Ok, I'm gonna have to put you on ignore now. It was fun....
If that was the case who makes the decision to sit him with the game on the line in favor of a healthier albeit not as skilled qb? Romo's last two series of that game were just bad. He should have said after the first on to let orton get us the win.
But Alex Smith will rarely EVER create a play from nothing - he will merely take the NOTHING and move on to the next down. Sorry... give me the guy like Romo - each and every time. I'll live with the bad. Not like you.
Yeah, I'm burnt out on the bad.
The Kansas City Chiefs are holding open competition for new fans. Maybe you could be Captain of the Alex Smith fan club and get a tramp stamp with ALEX on it.
Couldn't say much about this week so you have to keep revisiting last week, huh?
I love when people announce they are putting someone on ignore. Could you be any more of a drama queen?
It also shows a surprsing lack of self discipline.
The fact of the matter is the Chiefs have a tremendous defense. They shown that consistently for 3 weeks. And whether it was the game plan or Romo just took what was offered...he played well enough to win the game.
We have seen Romo play badly in losses.
That didn't happen in Week 2.
Relentless pursuit to hate.
Bravo. Well thought out & validates your point. Keep on keepin' on.
