    I´ve always been a big fan of Tony Romo and although at the moment I am certainly NOT, I saw this stat from Babe Laufenberg and it says a lot about the teams Romo has been playing for in the last 6 years.

    Games with a 100-plus rating:

    Romo 37-11
    Cutler 25-1
    Ryan 32-1
    Brady 79-5.

    I am certainly not saying Romo is Brady but this stat shows Romo can play great, but he loses because he has a bad team around him and that almost never happens with other QB´s around the league.

    I would like to see what Rodgers, Roethlisberger, Rivers, Eli, Brees etc. records are when they post a 100 plus rating but my guess is their more closer to Cutler, Ryan and Brady than to Romo.

    Saying this Romo does need to play much better in BIG games, he has the choker label and it´s up to him to change that.

    Well, I have gone to bat for Romo but to play devil's advocate I would also need to see how bad quarterbacks do with their occasional 100 rating. If bad quarterbacks also have lower percentages, it could just mean Romo is more like the bad group than the good and costs the team in other ways not measured by rating (fumbles, play calling, etc.)

    100 is a bit arbitrary as well, as 90 is certainly a good game and would likely lower some of these percentages...

    And, unfortunately, I think Jerry is FINALLY figuring this out - yet, like everything else he does, he's always 3-4 years behind. Romo has been consistent - good enough to win with, but NOT good enough to carry his team ALONE. I know it is just my opinion, but, imagine if he would've spent the last 7 years playing QB with the Steelers D backing him up..................

    Or with Baltimore for that matter, I was reading that Flacco is the first QB to take his team and at least win one game in each of his first 5 seasons as a QB.
    I do know this, Romo is better than Flacco, Sometimes it´s the luck of the draw and in this case Flacco got a much better draw than Romo.

    And it's pathetic that a mediocre QB like Flacco will get praised for being a "seasoned playoff performer". Put Romo on that team and I bet they have another Superbowl ring.

    And yet Romo's trophy case is still as empty as the Eagles organization.

    No doubt.

    Mark Sanchez immediately comes to mind.
    Rewind the clock a couple of years and the same haters now were using Sanchez as an example of the "winner" Tony suppossedly is not.:cool:

    What is the record for those QB vs Romo when they are playing bad? That could also tell you something about the team they are playing with.

    ...he is a better drop kicker than Doug Flutie.

    That's worth a few points to the cause right there.

    Well, we know if Romo is playing bad, we always lose. That is a given. We know, for the most part, that cannot be said for most other QBs--they win at least some of those games.

    We also know that if he plays insanely good, we may still lose.
    Take the the Giants game last year when had had 320+ yards, 4 TDs, 0 ints, a NFL record QB rating for a losing QB of 147.

    ...Jim Kelly's, Warren Moon's, Dan Marino's, Dan Fouts, Sonny Jurgensen, George Blanda, Steve Grogan, Ron Jaworski, Fran Tarkenton, Ken Anderson, Dave Krieg, Steve Bartkowski and John Hadl.

    The NFL is littered with disappointment. Romo doesn't have exclusive rights to that trophy. Neither does he have exclusive rights to outlandish and outrageous stats that point to whether he should or should not have won a championship or won a playoff game.

    For those who believe Romo is not a good enough QB they clearly haven't spent time digging through the past to learn about the careers of other QBs who have fallen short of the prize.

    What's so sad is that Romo still can play ball, but an epitaph has already been carved out for this guy as if he was dead already.

    Is this all the Cowboys fandom can muster? Hands up in the air defeat and no way to find a spark of cheer for the team and this past year?

    Sanchez is an entirely different enigma. Unlike Flacco, who has gotten a playoff "win" in a game he tossed for 34 yards and a pick, Sanchez has basically been phenomenal in the playoffs. And yet, if he didn't have that contract would he even be in the league next year? Probably as a backup somewhere , but as bad as he's been it's a legitimate question.
