    The best Romo we saw was in 2014. It isn't about passing 50 times a game, but you need more than 6.5 yards per attempt. Romo lead the league in passing yards per attempt in 2014 and was the model of efficiency at 8.52 yards per attempt. Dak is 27th in the league in passing yards per attempt with 6.11 yards per attempt.

    Find me a single QB who has a higher QB rating in games lost than Tony Romo.

    Don't worry, I'll wait.

    Bill James, the father of baseball sabermetrics loves players like Gene Tenace and Darrell Evans who never had high batting averages but did enough other things right to become more valuable than what the typical fan thought of them.

    I think Prescott is sort of that way when it comes to QB's. He's not going to be a guy who tosses 300 yards games on a regular (or even irregular basis). But you combine his rushing yards with his ability to protect the football... He can be a winning QB getting 225 passing yards a game– And he has been.

    Now the question is will most of this season be the 2016/first half of 2017 Dak Prescott or the last half of 2017 Dak Prescott, which wasn't good enough.

    We will see.

    Romo was how far into his career before he was able to do that? People don't realize how young Dak is. He's still learning.

    At some point the QB has to be a threat passing the ball.Next week Seattle keys on Dak running and Zeke has a better game. The next game Dak and Zeke get more controlled in the run game. Then Dak has to be able to put the ball down the field.

    More stats. Romo has great stats. His offense still sucked when the season was on the line.

    Point proven. It's a team sport. A team can win despite the QB only having 200 yards

    And yes I will gladly go back to Romo if you give me this online and defense. Did a Dallas defense ever have 6 sacks in a game that Romo played?

    Romo didn't have the benefit of defenses half as good as Dak had when he first became starter.

    We're actually now wasting a good defense on a QB who can't pass effectively... And will not beat the Aaron Rodgers' or Tom Brady's of the NFL 4 weeks in a row.

    the entire (short) data set would be interesting to look at. BTW, this sub 200 yd passing intelligencia also suggests that running the ball is irrelevant in the NFL, I wonder how well those teams that don’t run and throw for under 200 yds fare in the league?

    Yeah and for the vast majority of his career he had garbage offensive lines and garbage defense and for at least half of his career no consistent running game...

    You've been asleep the last 10 years.

    My point wasn't to say the QB won the Superbowl. The QB was on the team that won. From all my other posts in this thread you could gather how I feel about a qb getting too much credit and too much blame in an ultimate team sport.

    I have no doubt the numbers are accurate but I am interested in the criteria selection. For example, why the range of 6.2 to 6.4 ypa?

    Why not just include all performances above 6.2 meeting the other criteria? Does that affect the numbers?

    No, I know all the excuses. I also know the top 10 offense typically wasn't very good when the season was on the line. You just can't admit that so you're going to dance around it. Did you sleep through those games?

    Because they were specifically trying to defend Dak in the presentation of the numbers. More appropriately would have been sub 7s.

    No point was proven at all. One who said it wasn't a team game? Two said they couldn't win at all despite having 200? The point was that isn't the norm for winning. My friend won the lottery for 5million about a decade ago but just because he did does that mean that's the best way to become a millionaire. We can all point out outliers but there is usually a certain way of doing things for a reason.

    :huh:
    The numbers are not accurate. Hell, they don’t even make any sense. Here’s a stat that is accurate: since 2005, teams are 38-3 when their QB has 5 TDS and 0 INTs. Now does that make sense? Yes it makes perfect sense... usually when a QB goes off like that the team almost overwhelmingly wins.
    So how does it make sense that a dink and dunk mediocre stat line gets you an even better 26-1 stretch over the same period of time? :huh:
