    That might be a slight exaggeration but it is getting close. Now keep in mind that is not to say that he plays on the same level or that the media hypes him as being on that level. Neither is true. What is true is that the average non die hard NFL fan believes Romo is that atrocious, many of you are in the Dallas area so it is much different then here in NY but I believe public perception is better indicated by non home states.

    What does this mean for the Cowboys? Not much, more Romo mockery probably. It also means Romo, after this season, barring an amazing run next year, will be judged extremely negatively by history.

    He needs to take care of the ball in critical games , but that won't happen unless the all around game Improves so that he doesn't need to too much to win the game.

    Romo just "wants to be real" and "winning football isn't the most important thing in life."

    That most important thing in life quote in 08 so many love to bag on was in regards to his dealing with his father having prostate cancer at the time.

    It never was about the game. There is less than zero percent chance his commitment is or has been anything but the most important thing.

    It's sad how people hate and I do mean hate such a great player and person.

    After what has happened recently, there is a part of me that wishes romo and witten would go to another organization and win just to stick it to these people and to the jones family for the mess they have created.

    Fairly or not, the guy is seen as a joke by 95% of the league's fans.

    When perception affects the outcome of games, I'll give a damn.

    Hard to imagine how idiotic some of our fans can be. It's mind boggling.

    I said this before ...there are no exceptions...ALL successful QBs to ever play the game would agree with Romo on that topic. If losing a single football game was the worst thing to happen to any of them, then they would be the luckiest person to ever live. No dying family members, or killing someone while driving drunk, or having a child with cancer...just losing a freakin football game. How sweet would that be.

    In the context that he made that comment was in a playoff loss that was directly his fault. About as good a decision as going to vacation in a bye week before a game...which he lost.

    I mean I wanted to like him....after this year it's painfully obvious something is he chokes in all important games for one thing....worse than Danny White.

    The farther away the Red Headed Idiot stays from offensive play calling the better Romo will be.

    You know what's funny about that,

    The preseason started off with a free rusher up the middle against Oakland, romo was thrown to the ground and witten got a lacerated spleen.

    The regular season started with the second play of the year having Bernard come free up the middle and sack romo.

    The season ended on a play where a free rusher came up the middle and hit romo.

    Pretty sure that's the problem.

    kind of like in Philly, on a third and long a free rusher came up the middle romo dodged two sacks and completed a 25 yd pass to Austin for a first down, two plays later he hits Dez for a Td. Had he taken the sack the season would have been over at Philly in November.

    I maybe crazy, but maybe the problem isn't the guy people like u complain about 24/7.

    No it was after the loss at Philly in 08.

    Not a playoff game.

    Why do people constantly say, "Romo's the only reason were 8-8" like 8-8 is so great. And why are people so scared of starting over. It's weird to me. Like rebuilding has to start with the qb. One reason the 9ers might get to six in a couple weeks is because they had good drafts at other positions then got a qb. Get rid of him already, sure we might suck, and there might not be a qb in this draft, but they might be able to fill other holes. It won't happen though. And theyll be 8-8 next year.

    It's b/c of this weird line of thinking that has crept into a lot of the Romo supporter's heads that the Quincy Carter/Chad Hutchinson days are right around the corner as soon as Romo leaves. I'm not sure why they believe this is inevitable, as if there isn't an alternative to that...especially these days where there are several capable QBs being drafted every year. I think it's that and the fact that the 5-11 years scared the living day lights out of a lot of fans so 8-8 has become acceptable.
