    I would say trade him but would be hard to find a team who would take him. Our best option is to play him for 3 quarters and take him out before he has the opportunity to CHOKE.

    Yah it's not like we're essentially tied for first in the division, with one of the worst defenses in the NFL, right? I mean it's not like we control our destiny, hell, since the season's already over our whole team should just take the remainder of the year off. I wouldn't want someone like Miles pulling his poor lil hammy, oh the agony that would be to watch.

    Might not be able to because of that rediculous contract. Wants more than Brees? Sure why the hell not. Thanks JJ

    Actually, I think he gave his best Peyton/Brady imitation today. Peyton sealed his team's fate thursday with a late 4th QTR interception, and Brady did the exact same thing today. Just, you probably haven't heard about it yet because the media wouldn't want you to know they choked in the 4th. Atta' boy Romo!

    Or lead the team to another 4th quarter victory. He does that, too.

    Well, since theirs occurred first, I'm not sure that's possible? I mean it's not like it's known that Manning is a choker under pressure or anything ...

    Yeah....add those to all those play-off games he has won and we have how many Super Bowl rings? ZERO. The guy is nothing more than an average QB.

    So a QB is average unless he wins a SB. Interesting.

    Yea...not like Brady, Manning or Brees had a team that actually stepped up when they needed it to. When they were having problems getting it done.

    Don't worry. Romo will be gone in a few years and then the real misery will begin.

    i've always backed romo and felt most years this is a 5 win team without him. this is the first time since he became starter that i really wouldn't mind if the cowboys went in a different direction next year even though we all know that is not going to happen.

    the scary thing is he just doesn't have any legs anymore and can't improvise like he could in his prime. it's only going to get worse.

    You do realize that Peyton Manning is ALREADY in the playoffs right? And the Pats are leading their division by 2 games? You also realize that among the two of them, they've won a ton of super bowls and a ton of playoff games?

    And that the teams surrounding them and the coaches coaching them are infinitely better? Yea we all realize that.

    Doubtful. We could pull in quite a bit for him, actually.

    You do realize both those QBs have had much better teams around them then the P.O.S our QB has had, right? You also realize defense played a huge part in both of those QB's success in obtaining those rings, right? You also realize there's 52 other players on a team, right?

    You do realize that Brady went to the super bowl a couple of years ago with one of the worse defenses in the league, including the Giants. On the last several Super Bowls, the QB had to step up to win the game. Romo lovers know nothing about that though.

    And did he win? ... Nope, I thought so. Fact is Brady could only get it done when he had a stellar defense around him, and that's not a knock on him. It just means he plays a spot called Football which is the ultimate team sport and not one single person can overcome poor play from their surrounding cast. At least not consistently in a 4 game stretch or so to win the super bowl.

    How anyone expects Romo to carry this team to the playoffs is crazy talk, especially when Brees couldn't even do it in the same situation. If you consider Brees better then Romo, then why would you expect Romo to do something that even a future HoFer couldn't do, it makes no sense.

    But he's in position to get it done. When has Romo been in position to do anything?

    No. He should be benched until he's cut, whenever that is.

    Draft a first round QB in April.

    Actually, I was thinking maybe we should sit him out all of next year to give him some super duper rest.
