    I am a Dak fan and I have to say Romo was better. More accurate and consistent passer. This isn't an indictment of Dak, it's an endorsement of Romo.

    Here is Dak's career vs the first 6 seasons that Romo actually played. So Romo has the advantage of having 2 years to sit and learn and work on his mechanics and learn the offense while Dak got thrown in.

    Dak's numbers are all better.

    Unfortunately by the time Romo got really really good his body was shot. But when he was healthy his last 3 years he was better than Dak.

    Talent around Dak was much better, he was handed a ready made team....

    LOL! Romo was very good though not great. He was far better at the LOS pre snap. He was also a more accurate passer. Generally speaking the receiver did not need to contort their body to bring the ball in and could hit runners in stride.

    Romo also walked into a situation with Terrell Owens, Terry Glenn, and Jason Witten to throw to, a strong line, and Marion Barber in the backfield. The talent around Romo didn't start to deteriorate until 2011.

    The team he was handed had the #4 pick in the draft.

    Unfortunately the team is not better in the prime of either quarterback. We've done no more with Dak at the helm than with prime Romo. Could be we need a coaching staff in their prime to get us over the hump.

    Romo never won anything of note, and to this point neither has Dak. I guess this is what some have been reduced to,arguing about two quarterbacks that have never won anything of significance.

    And the reason why they had the fourth overall pick was because the team was decimated by injuries the year before..

    You give Romo the talent Dak's had for the past 6 years and we have more than 1 Wild Card win to show for it.

    Romo and it is not really even close. No offense to Dak but Romo was just better.

    Romo is better. Unfortunately, he was snakebit (when things went bad he didn’t get much help) and handicapped by bad coaching and talent acquisition on the lines for far too much time in his career. He had some good teams but not SB quality ones on both sides of the ball, and other teams he was on had no business being 8-8 if it wasn’t for him. He could’ve been a Cinderella story with a better managed franchise.

    The reason is because Romo was hurt, not many would take Dak over Romo all things being equal not even a debate.

    I’m not a Dak fan. And I won’t a Romo fan. But I think Dak is more clutch than Romo. I remember waiting for the sky to fall during crunch time. when Romo was QB1.

    Do you also believe Dak and Romo are better than Aikman and Staubach? Because I'm sure they have them beat in those same stats too.

    The QB position, even from when Romo got started, has changed a lot and those stats without context are misleading and is no accurate indicator of who the better player is.
