    I never said Wilson had more playoff wins than Romo i don't believe..

    What i was trying to suggest though was simply that at some point, when you don't come through enough times, and its always because of a different reason, it's probably not just coincidence anymore..

    I think you're really onto something there.

    As a side note, has there ever been a more controversial player in franchise history? I know that Danny White had people on both ends of the fence, but Romo is so incredibly black and white, there's no gray.

    More generic talking points. Every game is different. We have come back a ton under romo.

    Which year did we have a top five defense? Are you referring to 09?

    Do you have those exact statistics handy by chance? I think that Romo has several things working against him:
    - He plays for America's Team.
    - His mistakes feel like they come on the biggest stages (Seattle, Washington, Denver, etc...).
    - Everything is black and white with him, no gray at all when it comes to opinions.

    Yes, the 09 season when we only allowed 15.6 PPG.

    We were top five in points once in his career, we went 11-5 and won a wild card game.

    I mean that pretty much explains it.

    He has had one good defense and one 1,000 yd rusher.

    Pretty hefty burden to carry.

    I don't disagree with what you're saying here.. im just sick of seeing the posters who say if Romo ever had a good defense we'd win a championship.

    It's a pretty important statement.

    The defenses In his time have repeatedly blown the leads he has given them in the fourth quarter.

    It has happened time and time again. Most fans only remember what the qb's did because its easy to remember and because the national media most listen to only talk about qb's.

    The informed fans understand the grey area and what has happened here.

    I agree here as well. It's pretty crappy for Romo actually TE dude is super talented and I think Chip Kelly summed it up if you love QB play you just get mesmerized by him. I for one am gonna enjoy the next couple of years because when he's gone it will be sad. A lot of people will be kicking themselves that they didn't sit back and enjoy it.

    The informed fans also understand why a statement like, "Well if we'd ever have a decent defense, we'd win a championship with Romo." is silly.
