Exactly, until he gets past this...I'm not going to keep giving myself false hope.
We just can believe how ignorant the haters are. Blaming Romo for 1 win in 8 seasons is just stupidity. Most all of his "gaffes" have been when trying to bring the team back from being behind. Having to do that over and over and over every game. ESPN idiots don't watch all the games and only see highlights of the mistakes. So they spout the hate and the dumb Cowboy fans believe it, use it. Those fans can be instantly discarded because it shows their lack of football knowledge or the fact that they don't watch all the games.
HE gets past it. Typical of the romo haters. They live in this fantasy world where there are one man teams.
Those pics happen because the clock is running out and we are behind. The big games we lost are all the same: the D fails and romo has to make plays BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE DOES.
I'll be the first to admit that Romo has made his share of mistakes...bone-headed even. But many times those mistakes occur as result of him trying to do too much in situations where his options were limited to begin with. To suggest that the defense has been good enough to win the East, while possibly accurate, means absolutely nothing. If you are good w/division championships, by all means, beat that drum. But if you honestly think the defense has been good enough the last two years to win Super Bowls, you are delusional. Injuries have plagued our defense, and you certainly can't blame that on Romo. I said earlier in this thread that I do believe it's time to start looking for his replacement, but there is no body, absolutely no one out there available that gives the Cowboys a better chance to win right now than Romo. Period.
Because it doesn't need it...yet???
Sometimes that is the case. But it's not always that black and white. You can't give him all the credit when we win and none of the blame when we lose. He's had his fair share of late game blunders that cost the team; just like the defense has. He's not the only one that makes plays, nor is he the only one who makes mistakes.
It is simplistic to point out an interception that occurs at the end of the game and say, "Romo lost the game." But if the opposing team scores just 1 touchdown, that means the defense shares in that blame. And Romo's blame is reduced for each score the opposing team get's.
pointing out losses in the playoffs shows that Jerry has given this team chances. 2007 and 2009 were legit chances. This team just didnt get it done. Nothing to do with Jerry
So Dallas having the #2 offense in the league and #7 rushing attack isnt real evidence? what a joke
Oh really he has? I don't remember Peyton or Brady or even Rodgers or even Brees constantly throwing late game ints. It happens, but not very often.
Romo hater? Is this all you Rose smelling homers have to say about anyone being critical? I still like romo, and hell I root for him, he's on my team, and I want a championship.
What I will not do, is dig up every excuse I can for his guy, like as if somebody told me there was a billion dollars worth of gold buried at such and such spot.
Romo has a few great regular seasons, stats wise. Yay....but I'll take Eli's stats and his rings any day of the week for the Cowboys and Romo.
The "romo is savior" group is just as vocal and just as annoying as the "romo haters" group, if not worse.
He will never get past it. It is just who he is. 8+ years in the league and he still hasn't learned. Just accept him as is, because he will never change. He has had an amazing career for an UDFA but that is about as far as it goes. He will NEVER lead this team anywhere. Last chance he had, he turned out to be the weakest link on the team(Wasington 2012).
Tony Romo is not Brady, Manning, Brees, or Rodgers. I don't think anyone is saying that.
After that, there's an unusually large group of QBs that are all in the debate.....all good enough to get it done when they also have a defense and run game. But even then, it's a crapshoot.
All of those other players, when put in rough situation every single week (most do not,btw) end up throwing a few late game picks.
Actually, even the top 4 do it sometimes. Brady did it once or twice just last year. Peyro did I the playoffs for the loss in 2012 vs Baltimore. Etc, etc... But they usually don't have to because they're closing the game out with a lead.
If you want Romo to be one of those top 4, well I want to win Powerball this week....dream on.
Good luck with that one.
lol... You have come a long way man. I'm proud of you! Back in the day you used to bash me for my opinions on Romo. Congrats on seeing the light and being real now.
As crazy as it sounds he is 100% correct. The division has royally sucked. The last 2 years we had the ball with little time left in the 4th. We controlled our fate in those games. We could have won except for the mistakes by the QB's.
It's this type of logic that makes me shake my head at this and threads like it.
So, by your explanation, the defense becomes more culpable with every score they allow.
If that were the case, does the offense assume the blame when they don't score?
I think you make a sound point, but one you may not have meant to make.
If the teams that play both score 24 points, and the Cowboys have the ball with less than two minutes and are driving, how does accounting work on an interception that leads to the points for the other team?
1. Dallas did not score. So minus one for the offense.
2. The defense gave up points. So minus one for the defense.
3. Romo threw a turnover.
Now how does that factor in?
You see, some here will blame the defense. They should not have given up the points. Yet this game is skewed toward points, so the defense starts in the hole just because of the rules.
I believe in most cases the defense is the problem. Game in and game out you see the defense struggle as the game goes on.
One would think the head coach would focus on game management so the team can have the lead and the ball and milk the clock. But we have seen that doesn't work with Opie either.
But I'm a fair guy, and believe there is enough blame to go around for everyone involved.
So when I see Romo throw a pick at the end of a game that causes the other team to run out the clock, or go and score, I have to ask what would the results have been if he did not toss that pick?
That usually answers the question for me.
I get why people get annoyed at how Romo gets unfairly singled out for struggles, but this perception that he has been the modern era's version of Archie Manning playing on teams stripped of talent is just as inaccurate.
I'lI look up some others, but I checked out Tom Brady last year.
Of course, his 12-4 team was rarely behind late in games.
But even in those very few times that it was late in the 4th quarter and they needed a drive to win, he had THREE very late 4th qtr picks. That was just last year and that was more than Romo.
I don't want to hear that these guys never "pull a Romo". They do it plenty. And give that they usually lead late in games (way more than Dallas) one could argue they do it at almost the same % rate.
