why are we using random numbers like 230 yds. Why not 250,275, or 300 as a bench mark for comparison
If our dysfunctionally ran franchise couldn’t surround Romo with enough why do we think they will Dak?
Romo had a good line, good running back, #2 All Time NFL HOF Wide Receiver, a young HOF bound TE and a top 10 defense. Right "much worse"..
As to the first part, Romo also was grimacing after every minor NFL hit , was taking pain injections for his back before every game, couldn't stay in the field, and couldn't run forwards anymore. It was time to move on.
you put them there to show Dak but Whatis the focus? im going to ask it was your post..explain what you are trying to show.???
Romo wasn’t grimacing anymore than Rodgers does after big hits...
He broke his collarbone and had an awkward hit on him in a preseason game.
A) if the team was so good why did Romo take over mid season? This is revisionist history. Per usual people look at the "stars" of our team and ignore the depth of it.
B) Romo was healthy and ready to play when he gave his concession speech. That's all that matters. You can say he couldn't make it through the rest of the season but you'd just be guessing.
The defense we currently have is the main part of the team that has the potential to be "much better" than anything that Romo had (because the defense was bad in some seasons). Don't see where else Dak has a "much better" supporting cast than Romo had. Romo had Witten and Dez in their prime. And also RBs like Barber who for a season or two was playing well enough to make Dallas a threat in the running game.
Because I picked a middle ground for comparison because of the title of this thread and because obviously Romo would have more games with more passing yards as it was a heavy passing system. I'm sure if Dak was asked to pass more (more attempts), he would have more passing yards.
If people are fretting because of the lack of passing yards but the guy they are pointing to (to be more like), had the exact same issues, it's obviously a moot point.
Ultra extreme exaggeration.
'Could not stay on the field after sustaining an injury that would not allow him to safety participate'? Happens to every player sustaining an injury meeting the criteria in every sport.
Oh I don't know, Romo showed some pain a few times.
Because the starting QB sucked and was a turnover prone statue at that point in his career??? How does a QB getting benched indicate how good the rest of the team is?
Romo was healthy and ready to play in the pre-season too. How did that work out?
I loved Romo. But why some people can’t accept the fact that his body couldn’t take it anymore, is beyond me. The dude was clearly beat to hell toward the end of his career and was missing a ton of games due to repeated injury. He was physically done.
You mean 2006?
The dude was beat to hell and seemed like he was always hurt from 2010 on, even if he played through the pain. His ribs were seemingly always broken or bruised.
Exactly what I am referring to with (exaggeration). Apparently our TE' s now are on par with Witten and our receivers now are all on par with Terrell Owens/Dez Bryant. Absurd
And that defense was quite good back then.
Now sure, the team was not complete later. O-line fell apart starting 2010 season, then defense fell off as well.
Then rebuilt O-line 2013-14 but still not much in terms of defense until last season.
This is clearly becoming a Romo/ Dak divide. Lol
It's not becoming, it is on year 3.
Broken hand, bruised hand, multiple broken collar bones, multiple fractured back vertibre, disc hernia, rib fracture, stomach, punctured lung.....Whoa.
He had chronic back issues.
Fabricated that he couldn't/shouldn't/wouldn't run forwards anymore? Then where is his rushing yards?
I would call it more of an educated guess. I mean yeah we cant for sure say it, but I mean the last 3 times the guy got hit he ended up out for an extended period of time.
