    i'd rather be 5-11 if we're not going to make the playoffs. at least we'd get higher draft picks. niners followed that formula now they've surpassed us and have a team that will compete for many years.

    Romo's public perception is fine, I was actually surprised to see his approval rating was at 70% on an ESPN poll immediately after the Washington game. The Romo haters are just weirdos who I suspect don't even like football anyway, they're just front runners who are "too good" for 8-8 seasons in their own demented minds. Can't wait until Romo signs his extension, and wish I could be there to see the rage and frustration on every Romo haters face. This is as good a time as any for you to find a new team, boys. There's nothing left here for you front runners.

    Romo was compared to a Super Bowl quarterback?

    OMG NO! not an extension! We will be 8-8 until romo isnt are QB! He never has had a better record! He will never win a play in game! He will never win a playoff game! He will never win 2 division titles! He just chokes every game that matters, that's why he has nothing to show for being undrafted!:lmao::laugh2:

    Danny White didn't choke his teams just weren't as good any more. I guess Marino choked and Elway choked until he got a dominant running game.

    A little life experience may give some people better perspective.

    No kidding. Romo bails the offense out on a nearly weekly basis.

    Combine that with fans being unable to determine who is to blame on an interception (ie, did the receiver not run the correct route)... And everything is thrown at his feet.

    God forbid Romo has a bad game, because then we are sunk. We can't win when he a poor game. The team can't carry him on days like that. But we expect him to carry the team week in, week out.

    Excellent post. Romo bailed Garrett out time after time this season. We would not have even sniffed the playoffs without Tony Romo. The farther removed Garrett is from the offense, the better Romo will be. Upgrading the o-line wouldn't hurt either.

    Exactly.

    Meanwhile in D.C., Griffin can stink up the joint and still win a division deciding game.

    There's your difference. I don't really care about public perception.

    Total BS....and I was furious after that play too.

    But I just rewatched the Washington game last night. Yes, still ticked off about that last throw. He looked very comfortable in that 4th quarter though and was moving the team very well and making some outstanding plays and decisions under pressure. He had just completed a nice gainer to Witten right before that play. They were looking good. He just got fooled there...plain and simple. The pressure cmae in about 1 second and he thought he had an outlet and let the ball go. Huge mistake...but not a choke. A mistake. He'd just passed for a TD and a pressure packed 2 pt conversion. The guy was not choking. he just failed on that one play. Plenty of time still, btw. But washington drove it down for the score and that was it.

    He started that game poorly, looking way ouf synch. But he steadied the ship and we did not give up points to Washington on those early screwups (though we lost our chances, so still sucked). He played fine after the poor start. We went up 3-0 even after that bad start. They just controlled the ball and pressured us way to much.

    What blew me away in rewatching the game was that I had forgot that right before they started that fateful drive near the end, the showed the stat of Romo the last 6 games...and how he had totally carried that team to be in playoff contention.

    6 games. 8 TDs, 0 ints. 115 rating. 4 game winning drives and almost 5 vs NO. Total and completely carried the team....yet everyone only remembers than him getting fooled on that play vs Washington. Nothing else matters.

    You can get fooled on a play-- even when you are starting to play well. It does not mean you choked. People that play sports usually understand that.
