Playing the theme to "jeapardy"
Romo was enough to elevate a 4 Win team to 8-8 but unable to take us further on the bigger stages . He provided hope when there was little. Good enough to take us to the brink and keep butts in the seats. In the end not enough. He was part of that disappointing era.
If this joke of a football operation can’t surround Romo they’ll struggle surrounding Dak.
Dumbarse - UHHHH HOW MANY NFL RECORDS HAS HE BROKEN?
Romo fan - 5
Dumbarse - NFL RECORDS DONT MATTER ........... I OWNIN YOU!
I'll tell you what, how about a compromise... Romo is the greatest REGULAR season QB to ever live. There you go
How about this one, this should end it. Is Tony Romo a HOFer? My answer is *** NO!
Ahh, you look cute in that gif
15.6 ppg still sucks...the point in eliminating two home games against crap teams is to suggest that our offense has largely been worse than 15.6 ppg. Points per game against winning teams is even lower than 11 ppg. The trend points towards the offense getting worse under Dak, not better.
I believe so, too.
What is often not discussed is why Romo didn't come back when he could have. His injury was healed weeks prior to even be able to practice again and then he still wasn't suited up. Prior to kickoff, a sideline reporter (I believe Pam Oliver) mentioned she had just talked to Romo and asked why he wasn't dressed and Romo told her he was healed but the doctors just can't be sure he would be able to withstand a hit.
With Dak playing so well, I don't think the team wanted to risk injury to Romo unless absolutely necessary even though Romo was raring to go. Of course, a couple weeks earlier Romo had stated on the sidelines that it was hard in 2015 watching the team lose and not being able to do anything about it, but it was harder to watch the team win and not be needed, so of course he wanted to play. I think Dallas protected Romo from himself the remainder of the year and that's why he didn't get extended playing time in weeks 16 & 17, just a swan song drive.
In the offseason, Romo weighed his options and decided to retire, at a pretty early age considering how long these other QBs are now playing. I believe if he had full confidence he could remain healthy, he would be the starting QB for the Texans right now.
Doubt that. Stats are a way to analyze, and break down past results so as to get a feel for possible future results. That's what people who quote stats are doing. But I'm sure they will take a win any way they can get it, it's just that they want winning streaks and winning seasons so they, rightfully, break down numbers so as to know what they may expect.
Typical Romo defense. And you like to throw around how people don't know football. The irony. His first year he started went to the playoffs. Plenty of other years. 2014 was one of the best teams. Probably because he wasn't throwing as much. He had a good enough team in 2007 & 2009. There's 4. The teams weren't good enough to go the playoffs, but we still went? Huh?

Romo needed things to be just right in order to maximize his talent
I would not say so. When I watched Tony Romo play, I never thought of him as a Hall of Famer. Romo always had throwing talent, but he played his best football when he had a potent running game and stout pass protection. When he did not have those luxuries, Romo was an inconsistent decision maker as a QB.
He was good -- not great -- as a QB. And many of the Cowboys teams he led were underwhelming. A good, solid player whose talent was largely underappreciated. But not a Hall of Famer.
You won't have a single person that has been in the NFL, who has retired, any sports journalist, or any intelligent fan that will agree with you that he was a JAG.
You don't have to consider him a legendary player, but Romo was a top 10 and had a few seasons where he was a top 3-5 QB in the league. That is not a JAG.
Pretty spot on.
You are an expert at changing your argument once it has been lost! Congrats - unique ability!

Romo was a fine quarterback, but not transcendent
Tony Romo was a great story, going from undrafted free agent to NFL star. I would stop short, however, of calling him a Hall of Fame quarterback. He was great, but not spectacular. He was like a quarterback version of the Toyota Corolla. Very serviceable. Pretty efficient. Nobody is ever going to think it was the best car ever. But pretty good.
Unfortunately for Romo, he's inevitably going to be compared to some of the great quarterbacks not only in NFL history, but Cowboys history. Maybe it's a little unfair, but that's football.
Yes he does.
Snoopy is my favorite. But that's Eli!
