    Ok we have had fun with this little experiment in trying to make Dak into Romo and Dak has proved what one man can do another can do . Great stats and less wins

    Now if nobody minds its time to go back to what worked in the past and concentrate on moving the chains , Dink and dunking down the field while controlling the clock and PROTECTING our defense .

    Dak has to take this team on his back and run the ball when necessary to pick up the firsts . We need long controlled drives ending in TDs Featuring our expensive running game that we were built for .

    We cant leave this game in Garrets hands the officials hands or our idiot kicker . This game needs to work off the way this team was built and intended to function SMASH MOUTH RUNNING . Its time to abandon ROMO BALL and turn this thing around .

    This offense has to carry this god awful defense and special teams. When is the offense going to get even an ounce of help? This team has not forced a turnover in 4 games. Putrid.

    To ask an offense to constantly move the chains every single drive in the NFL is absurd. I don't care how good you are and how bad the other team is. Every offense will stall. How about the defense chip in and stall out some offenses for us? Nope. They get gashed and embarrassed every single game.

    Running the ball doesn't work against negative fronts. Don't care who you have on the OL and in the backfield.

    They just need to convert.

    I hear that this defense has been a real disappointment this year . Hard to figure whats hurt us more Garretts coaching , Special teams or the Defense ,

    Im just saying running the ball and controlling the clock while utilizing short passes and manageable down and distance situations keeps all those other phases off the field where they can do no harm .

    Also keeps Garrett from having to think a dangerous prospect in itself. He is best just clapping

    Without Dak this is a 4 win team, maybe even a 1 win team since Cooper Rush is still the backup.

    The Ghost of Romo will forever haunt some in this forum. So since you want to go there, yes, Romo couldn't win the Big game in the playoffs but at least he would put up big points against good defenses. Not just yards and field goals like Dakota does against good defenses in garbage time.

    I agree that Dak should use his legs more, but Dak is his own player with his own skill set. He has nothing to do with Romo.

    Kellen needs to stop trying to get Dak to carry this team. We had chances to score and win the last 2 games but Kellen stopped calling runs in the 2nd half. I get needing to move down the field quickly but inside the redzone especially inside the 10 you run the dang ball. Use all 4 downs to get the 1st or score.

    Special teams are going to be this week's story. If we do score, the kickoff team will allow huge returns. Huge. And the Bears return every kick, so be prepared for a likely TD on a return.

    This will another great yardage stat game because we'll have to drive full fields and they'll have short fields, but the score won't reflect it

    I think Kellen is being reactionary. After that Vikings fiasco, everyone called for his and Garrett’s heads for running the ball so much, so now they pass. Now the pass isn’t “working”. What will they do? Who knows.

    Some are still upset with how Romo was treated in the internet?

    I had plenty of battles against those anti-Romo dummies, but it’s over and now many of you have become them.

    Let it go.

    My take on the OP.

    Dak can put up numbers like Romo. But who gives a dang about stats. We want wins. So let's get back to what helped us go 13-3 three years ago. Time consuming dink and dunk smashmouth football.

    He isn't comparing Dak to Romo or badmouthing either one of those guys. He just wants us to win. Anytime someone brings up Romo's name some of us just start twitching.

    But some will bash him for allegedly comparing Dak to Romo. Some will bash Dak. Some will bash Romo. Instead of reading in between the lines. Seek to understand. Before being understood. The OP just wants us to reclaim that winning formula.

    No agenda here but keep looking. :cool:

    The defense has been average and has done enough to win games that were lost because the offense was garbage.

    The offense deserves just as much blame.

    I find it funny to watch. I supported Romo, and I support Dak. I see plenty of Romo haters who are all in on Dak and are using the exact same arguments that Romo supporters used that the Romo haters called "excuses." Now some of the Romo-supporters that aren't Dak supporters (or are but are trolling former Romo-haters) are using the same tactics.

    Dak is having the same problem Romo did in that the rest of the team isn't doing all that much to help. A lot of drops, some bad blocking against decent defenses, the defense allowing opponents to score nearly at will....so Dak feels he has to do more...hence he forces the ball and makes tactical errors resulting in interceptions.

    And so the cycle continues until the culture changes.

    Exactly. Two of the 'biggest' games thus far, Saints and Patriots, were games where the defense did a good enough job. Special teams should not be left out of any blame game either.

    Based on the stats people have been throwing around, the average offensive performance per drive isn't a problem at all. They just need more drives.

    For that to happen you need to look at the other side of the ball and figure out how to get more 3 and outs.

    It's the same game. There is plenty of evidence to prop up or trash either QB. It's just a matter of which side you elect to argue. :muttley:

    I’m not sure we win a game with rush
    He is a waste of a roster spot
