    Orton played a great game but missed some big ones... If the defense played the way they did and Romo was at the helm we would have won...

    I'm not so sure about that. We don't know how he would have played, or what reads he would have seen. I've watched him snatch defeat from the jaws of victory too, and he get paid a whole lot more to do it.

    The defense played really well. Enough to win. Romo would have made a lot of plays against this defense.

    IF the defense would have played the same - Romo probably would have won it. But since SOMETHING always has to go wrong, we would have found another very imaginative way to lose I'm sure.

    OMG the romo lovers never stop.. For all we know we might have gotten blown out with romo in there. If you want whats best for this franchise for the future pray that romo retires and orton is our starter going into next year.

    With that clean pocket and that Eagles game plan, Romo would have thrown for like 400 yards.

    He also could've thrown 2-3 interceptions like he often does in these do or die games. Guess we'll never know though. But he's 1-6 record in such games leads to believe we would've lost somehow.

    And then tossed the game ending interception...

    Acting like Romo has never done that before...

    Orton missed some throws. But from what I've seen, Romo probably wouldn't have even attempted some of the throws Orton missed.

    I didn't like Orton's limitations, but I actually preferred the way he played the game.

    Took shots down the field. Made quicker reads that were usually correct. Used a hard count to make situations more manageable, and overall had better situational awareness than we're used to.

    Just threw it behind receivers on two throws.

    Romo would've done nothing as usual. He would've missed Dez deep, tried to run around and fall on 4th down under the blitz where Orton stays in the pocket and delivers to Dez for a touch down. Orton hasn't been playing for 7 straight years like Romo has. Give Orton a complete year, then you can talk ****.

    Like he would have beaten the Skins last year and Giants year prior....give me a break.

    He did nothing against this same defense earlier in the year.

    Orton has started a significant amount of games in his career. It's not like he was drafted yesterday.

    All of the key numbers point to him being a below average quarterback. That's why he is a backup.

    You need to find another team to support if you're convinced nothing will change.

    If I had a million dollars, I'd be driving a snakeskin green GTS Viper.

    I was waiting for this thread to pop up...

    I agree. Romo holds the ball much longer than orton. The offense looked more organized and looked like everyone on the same page. Only 1 penalty and it was a clock error so really no penalties.

    I would agree if you could tell me that the D would play like that.
