    Romo wins the Super Bowl then he is credible.

    My logic is he can't afford to turn the ball over in his own end of the field with time running down in a tie game especially vs Peyton Manning. Romo's critical mistakes always seem to come at the worst possible time late in games which makes them virtually impossible to overcome. He didn't have to play perfect last Sunday the Cowboys could have overcome an early turnover from him. They overcame Dez's turnover to tie the game because it happened earlier in the game. Denver was able to overcome Manning's int because it happened earlier in the game. Peyton has made critical mistakes late in games that have cost his teams wins like the ill-timed mistake he made in the SB vs NO. That was a mistake that couldn't be overcome.

    If you're going to make a mistake make it an early mistake so you have a chance to overcome it. Had Romo's pick come with 6 minutes to play the Cowboys may have been able to overcome it. All they needed was a minute on the clock to possibly move into FG range to tie the game back up.

    Romo is already credible. He cannot win the SB all by his bad self no matter how many posters want to think that he, and only he, are the reason for the teams demise. But then again, some posters have so much tunnel vision against the guy that if the defense does not help win a game, it was because of....Romo.

    Have to agree that if the defense does not how up then the QB is in trouble.

    I'm isolating games where he's had to make plays in the end to win these games. That's where he's had serious issues. If the Cowboys have a lead late he's able to manage games it's not on him to have to make a play. His only elimination game win was a result of a comfortable lead where he could play within himself. That playoff win over Philly was the only elimination game he played in where didn't commit a big mistake.

    What was it? Manning scored on his first 5 or 6 possessions? If the defense stops just one of those, the whole story could have been changed and Romo does not need to fight his *** off to try and win the game. But, none of that counts because again...it was Romo's fault the team lost.

    Well we all know Eli Manning has that Magical Clutch Fairy Gene. Pretty much the rest of the season he is going to be in spotlight, big game, win or go home, do or die, put up or shut up, games. I am just guessing that the Magical Clutch Fairy Gene made a lot more appearances with a good OL, running game, and or defense than it makes this year without a good running game, OL and or defense.

    It would appear that Eli is suffering from No Helpitis like Romo has and so far the early returns show that when No Helpitis strikes the Magical Clutch Fairy Gene turns to straight up Choke Gene. This will be interesting for sure.

    You keep replying so it's hard to be done haha. "Elimination" losses. That's funny. He was sacked 6 1/2 times that game. Hard to be very effective in that regard. As a matter of fact, surely you can agree that Manning and Brady both become choke boys when they start hitting the ground. It's the only way you can beat those guys. Dallas as a whole got their butts whipped that game. Offensively and Defensively. The great Suisham who botched 2 field goals in that game too. What a complete failure. Tony was awful against The Redskins last year, I won't deny that a bit. He had an off year. Now Eli can say he's having a "Romo" year. :)

    But, then again, Romo's TEAMS have never won 2 SB's.

    Just thought I would get that out of the way before anyone else chimes in about that.

    Surprise, you didn't answer the question,,, does getting your left foot knocked out from under you as you pass impact your throw? the answer is a resounding "YES"...QBs throw into coverage all the time, Romo did so successfully multiple times in this game alone. Bottom line is that a result fed your stated agenda and you're spinning the cause to fit your need.

    Thanks for pointing out the highlighted. It's okay, I am accustomed to Romo haters too(not you). Sad that this is true because I live in DFW. Talk about a bunch of fair weather fans. I suppose 20 years of nothing will do that. However, we're still 1 of three teams with 5 or more SB's. I guess that counts for nothing. We need to be the Yankees of Football in order to appease this city. I'm as tired as anyone of mediocrity but, the problems have been a lot deeper than QB. Tony is easily a top 10 QB in this league. We're lucky to have him. Or maybe not. Maybe if we traded him, we'd suck so bad we'd get an early round 1 pick for the past few years and actually build something. Of course, Jerry would probably trade them for another Roy Williams.

    You keep replying you're the one who initiated this discussion. lol All you're doing is continuing to make more excuses. Eli was sacked 6 times and hit 22 times vs SF in the 2011 NFC title game and still got it done. QB's are going to face adversity during elimination games especially on the road and if they can't handle the pressure you're going home. Eli and Brady have choked at times BUT both have made plenty of big plays in critical situations during spotlighted games after hitting the ground a number of times.

    Not once did either QB win a championship without facing adversity during their championship runs. Eli is proving this season how damaging a QB's turnovers are to a teams success. He had 27 turnovers in 07 and 4 vs Minn including 3 pick-sixes but once he stopped turning the ball over that season the Giants turned things around. Eli has only had 2 turnovers in his 8 playoff wins that include 2 SB wins.

    I wish Romo would get traded! Then Cowboy fans would really have something to gripe about! lol

    I really think, and this is IMO...Tom Brady, Ruthlessraper, hell, even the great Payton Manning or his little sister, Eli, would not have lasted this long with this team, and they are all great QB's! They got rings!

    Sometimes, you get what you wish for...and if Romo haters wish Romo was gone? lol Then what?

    There is a key word in that sentence. Once you see the difference between that and facts/reality, I think you'll be okay. Good luck!

    His foot "appeared" to be stepped on just before he made the throw. He made a bad decision on the play he should have thrown the ball to Murray. It was one of those impulse throws that always gets Romo in trouble. Romo made plenty of throws into coverage during the game but when the game was on the line he got picked. What else is new?

    That type of mistake is what Romo is famous for. I have no Romo agenda I just point out the facts while some continue to make excuses for him. He either got stepped on, his ribs were hurting or the stars weren't aligned just right for him. Give it up!

    Both got their rings on the backs of their studded defenses. Since then they've crawled up the ladder of their weak division and failed when it counted. Even Eli beat Tom Brady. So if it's QB's that win the big game then why did Eli beat Brady? I'm not spitting excuses. You've consistently just poured your anti-romo mess while consistently ignoring every fact I've given you as well as anyone else hear who has made a remarkable argument to you propaganda. Continue reading articles from News writers who hate the Cowboys and love to give off as much anti Cowboy news as they can. Again I'll say, we should just agree to disagree.

    Did his int vs Denver not come at the worst possible time? How about his final int vs Washington in the season finale last year did that turnover not come at the worst possible time?
