What evidence do you have that Romo DOES give us a chance to reach the SB? While I do understand the allure of Romo, I actually have more confidence and trust to win with Dak based on all the evidence that I can possibly gather over the last decade including this season.
I'd have more confidence if Romo had actually led us to a SB.
David Irving says hi.
It never stops.
We should at least give Dak a chance to choke away playoffs games like we did Romo.
Because of all the rings on Romos fingers
I'd do it. I wouldn't announce it at all. The Giants would roll out and see #9 and realize all the game planning they did for Dak was completely wasted.
I know we will take flack for thinking outside the box but I have yet to hear a great reason why not. It's called catching your opponent off guard. It's the goal in every sport and every game. The only reason I hear why not is "because this is Daks team". This isn't even a thoughtful reason. There is no meat to that reasoning at all. What the hell does that even mean? And it's not even true. Isn't it everyone's team? The other reason I hear is because Dak will be Butt hurt and crumble because his ego is fragile. If he is really like that, which I don't think he is, I don't want him here because he will ultimately be that 1 year wonder QB that isn't even in the league in 4 years. Starting Romo out hurts nothing and only helps because if anything it catches the Giants off guard. You don't have to stick with it or you can if it's working.. it's like having an Ace in your hand and not even using it. How many teams even have the option of rolling out a pro bowl veteran gunslinger with a completely different style than their young pro bowl game manager? Answer: Zero
Romo sees the game like an elite veteran professional QB. Dak, for now, sees the game like a senior at Mississippi State. He happens to have the best personnel in football, and he's poised, so it's worked well so far.
Romo is 5-0 against the Giants lately.
The definition of INSANITY is repeating the same thing and expecting different results. The Giants have beat us like a drum with their defense. Sooo . . . lets try something different that they have not schemed for. Romo would be a good one along with McFad and Zeke in the back field at the same time.
The definition of INSANITY is repeating the same thing and expecting different results. I agree. 2 playoff wins in 10 years. Time to start Dak.
a better idea to the OP. Prescott plays on 1st and 3rd downs in the 1st and 3rd quarter, then switch it up for the 2nd and 4th quarters. The opposing defenses won't know what hit them!!!!
We beat the giants twice in 07 and they beat us in the playoffs
Okay, I'll defend the OP's position. When we played the Giants (and Vikings), what I saw was a DL that maintained discipline in their rush and forced Dak to stay in the pocket with no escape lanes. They played tight coverage on the back end and Dak was unwilling or unable to throw into those small windows. Against pretty much everyone else, Dak could escape the pocket when necessary and find an open man or make plays with his legs. Maybe they can fix it with designed rollouts, etc., this time. But if I'm put in a position where I need the QB to throw aggressively and accurately into small windows, Tony's my best bet at this particular moment in time. Now we'd probably trade more offense generated for a turnover or two, but on balance, one can imagine how Tony could be a better option against the Giants and only the Giants.
And how many hits will Tony take playing against that Giants defense? If Dak can't escape it, I don't see how Tony does.
No worries. Tony won't be playing.
Prescott led the club to a 13-2 season. He is the undisputed starting QB. End of story. He plays to the end. Its his team now.
