    My bad. I hear first start and go back to '06 in my head. It was 2007 Romo started his "first year". That year Glenn was basically shutdown hoping to recover for a playoff push.

    For some irony let's....

    What's good Beamen? Thank you for posting this. I see @Frozen700 gave you a like for the cherry picking comment. Glad to see he's here picking his own cherries. Talking about Romo's first year starting he was dominating defenses. Completely neglecting the bench time or all the starts and actual game time in 2006. From now on I'mma pretend his career started in '07 too.

    Make believe is fun. Now I get why the Dak diehards do it so much. The Romo ones too for that matter.

    Dak is 33 - 16 as the Cowboy's starting QB. He's led 9 4th quarter comeback wins
    He's been keeping it afloat as you call it.
    And yes, ownership and management is certainly the elephant in the room.
    Starting from 2003 it took Romo 11 seasons to finally "get there"
    Dak already has a significant head start.

    I watched part of this, is this meant as a joke because it's petty sad if this is suppose to show Dak's greatness.
    I quit after about 5 examples of 4th quarter come backs, it's a joke stat and if this is what everyone is so enamored of with Dak's come backs please just stop. score any time in the 4th and don't loose the lead and it shows how great he is, it really shows that the Defense won a lot of the games if anything and some of the scores really really sad. Who really won the games is definitely not Dak and if your honest with your self you would see it. Appreciate Dak I understand but this is just ridiculous.

    Well then, if it's a "Joke" stat then that eliminates a huge chunk of Romo's legacy that so many here are enamored with.

    Most of the highest paid QBs have done squat in the playoffs

    Look at Matt Stafford

    I see what you mean about that. Not folding under pressure and getting the job done is something we shouldn't look for in a QB.

    I can't wait for the season to start. Time to find out if it was Linehan or Dak that limited the offense once and for all.

    never said that, but do you honestly believe this video shows some inner greatness because he was the QB when the team scored with 10 minutes left, 8 minutes left, 7 minutes left etc etc. etc. No insult to Dak but that stat and video doesn't show diddly swat in regards to not folding, getting the job done or much of anything else IMHO.

    brees is brees. he was top passer in the league before and always in the top 10. top 5. does he deserve that contract? compared to his performance?

    Cousins was over paid IMO. but he got second highest. not the highest.

    Wentz got to the numbers quickly...… people can sit there and argue fine little points about this and that and compare stats until cows come home. even dak fanatics have to admit, the stats are similar. I am not going to argue ceilings, etc. but he got 32-33.

    right now, I will be nervous paying him 33-34 or 35 or 36 that he is asking. so we wait and see.

    Exactly if he was garbage all game we would be up by 2 or 3 scores instead of struggling to win

    What does Romo have to do with anything why why why do you always bring Romo up, he didn't get Dallas anywhere either that's his legacy same as Dak to this point only difference is TR was a much better passer and QB but that don't mean crap he doesn't play any more, give it up. At least you begin to see it is a joke stat.

    There's almost no comparison basis between a QB in their 3rd year and one who is already retired and who's legacy has been set in stone.
    It's stupid to say Romo was better than Dak, when Dak is just getting warmed up.

    We were down and got the points. Whether the d held them after or the O chewed clock or a combination of so what? We won. The job got done. I don't care for how good it looks just get the W. I would like the urgency he shows at
    the end of halves to show up for the whole game though.

    If I cherry pick numbers to push my agenda, then what do you call your numbers to push your agenda? Or do you not have numbers, just your eye test.

    What they signed for is irrelevant. The discussion is what they asked for. Every starting QB in the league - really, ever player - is asking for "more" than they are worth.

    There were multiple reports that the counter offer was 34m, not the highest paid. Then 105.3 came up with "sources" it was 36m. I guess it depends on which report you believe. I'll go with the 34m since typically the money doesn't go up on the agent/players end.

    It's not a matter of if he is good or not.

    It's what he brings to the table and the money he wants.

    If he was offered 34 million then

    1. He's an idiot for not taking it.

    2. Dallas has no long term future with that contract.
