    So true.

    And games that he makes key mistakes become the all-time biggest games in Cowboy history. Ok, maybe not that big...but you get the picture.

    Game A:
    I think we had to hear about that Jets game for a nearly two years.
    Night game on the road in New York, everybody watching..and Romo has a couple of awful plays to go with an otherwise strong game. In any case...we lost and he played a big role.

    Game B:
    Fast forward to the same situation a year later, but an even bigger national TV game vs division rival and the defending SB Champ NY Gaints. The whole nation is watching.
    He plays an outstanding game. We win.
    It's forgotten within days. Jets game..huge. Giants game? meh :laugh2:

    I'd like for him to have more of sample size in the playoffs. Right now there's not nearly enough. The Vikings game was hopeless. The three others were a win and two games that could have gone either way.

    He did screw up vs Washington this year...but then again...that game is not of any significance if does not put the team on his back the second half of the season.

    The dude is not a choker. That is someone who does not want the ball in his hands to go for the win. I think he loves those situations. I can't count how many times in critical moments he has driven the team for a go ahead score. Now sometime the other team comes back and wins it--like what happened in the Seattle/Atlanta game.

    But he does try to do to much--and that gets him into trouble.
    That is a flaw in his game, but I do not consider that choking at all.

    No friggin way. Schaub us a statue and has made a ton of late game mistakes in his stint there. People here would pull their hair out even more.

    I agree, Dallas is much better.

    Horrible idea. Unfortunately I could see Jones doing something this inane.

    Could have both easily without any trade. We wouldn't have Tyron though, but Foster would have been a freebie.

    Why would anyone want to DOWNGRADE at QB?

    Whoever returns a better trade value I'd go with him...'coz I am moving on and hope we do the trade...


    I am just letting all know...don't be surprised as we get closer to the draft when you wake up and hear the news (Dallas Trade Tony Romo)

    :cool:

    I'd take Romo over Schaub all day, but I really don't blame him for that loss.
    28 points is not bad....but giving up 41 will get you beat almost every time.

    New England is better than Houston right now. No denying it.

    It will never happen. Tony is a good QB hampered by the worst OC and a very mediocre HC. If he had Parcells as his coach he would be in the pro bowl. If he had Belicheat as his coach, he would be headed for SB MVP and the Hall of Fame. Instead, Red Ball has him headed to the Hall of Shame. Red Ball is absolutely the worst OC, game planner, game manager, play caller that I have ever seen. Makes me long for Dave Campo, for cripes sakes!!!

    Of all the quarterbacks that were in the playoffs this year, I would take Romo over Webb. Schaub is flip a coin.

    I'd rather have Watt but that's been discussed in another thread.

    Guess Houston was the only team smart enough to take a chance on Foster. He's awesome.

    For QBs in the playoffs this year...
    I'd say:

    Tier 1: Rodgers and Brady and Manning (despite the pick) are in tier one

    hard to measure the read Option guys because that could change radically in a year or two.

    I guess after that it's
    Ryan
    (Romo?)
    Flacco
    Schaub
    Luck--though Luck will soon be up there or above Ryan.
    Dalton
    Webb

    again...no idea where to put the R/O guys right now.

    Ryan had a nice year this year.
    To give him benefit of the doubt, I'd slide Romo below him and above Flacco and the rest....right now. But game to game and for their careers, it could be argued that Romo has been better than Ryan. But we'll say not to avaoid that argument. Flacco deserves kudos for a good game. Maybe he will settle into being a good QB.
    If you factor in youth, you could change it up some. luck for sure goes way up.
