    If a Romo-led offense wasted one of the best defensive performances of the year, nobody would be talking about yardage.

    This. Points matter. Not yards. Romo's drives would result in TDs.

    Romo would have choked and done exactly the same thing

    But also more 3 and outs as well - then our defense would have given up more points. Just my oppinion

    Romo has a 3 to 1 TD to INT ratio for the season, so if Romo threw 2 picks like Orton did, he would have given us 6 TDs to go along with it.


    Yall can pretend Romo loses that game all day, but the facts are that we have scored at least 25 points in every single home game Romo played this year...............ergo, we would have beat Philly who scored 24.................end thread.

    Orton threw a pretty nice ball to Dez for a would be TD while an untouched blitzer was a step from leveling him. Dez just didnt get a jump because he located it late and then didnt have the feet planted right to make a jump for the ball.

    But Romo does not do that there. He takes a sack or tries to bob and weave and scramble - if he gets loose maybe something happens on a broken play - maybe something good, maybe something bad. But the other team has no reason to stop blitzing because they know romo isnt likely to even try to make that play.

    Orton made a good throw with heavy pressure and the TD to Dez at the end was also off a blitz-gamble by the eagles def coordinator.

    I would rather se my QB beat the blitz with a throw than scrambling.

    The cowboys dont do that with romo and that is why they still have trouble with the blitz.

    I diagree. we may have scored more but so would the eagles due to less sustained drives and more 3 and outs by romo that put the defense in bad spot.

    Complete BS. You don't score more points with fewer sustained drives.

    Skip Bayless just said if Romo played, the Cowboys win easily.

    Which is most likely the reason for a better showing from the defense

    He's saying that the Eagles may have scored more because with Romo playing, we might have had fewer sustained drives, thus allowing the Eagles Offense to have more shots at our D.

    Last night, Bayless said that signing Romo long term was the biggest mistake in a very long list of mistakes by Jerry. He said that Romo was one of the main reasons the Cowboys would not win anytime soon.

    Like the statement you just posted, I don't give the statement Bayless made last night, much validity.

    To be fair the Cowboys OFFENSE vs the NFC EAST scored 23 and 24 vs the Giants and Redskins at home....and were helped tremendously by a RGIII fumble near the goaline and another huge return by Harris in the Redskins game or that number would have been much lower.

    I agree with half of that statement. Signing Romo longer term was one of the biggest mistakes we could have made. We signed an old declining QB who is not a winner long term. We are a cash strapped team with many holes. There were better business decisions we could have made. We could have traded SF for Smith and traded Romo for a first. Are you telling me Smith couldn't get this team to 8-8 or better? How much does Smith make? We are paying Romo elite money and not getting elite play out of him. A team that is full of holes, simply cannot afford that. We will pay with more 8-8 or worse seasons because of this.

    Yes i forgot that. The cowboys offense at home vs redskins was worse than yesterdays except for romos drive at the end but the rest of the game was pretty bad. They were gifted the first 7 points by ST.

    Average length of possession for our offense going into the game was 2:30.

    Last night, 2:31.
