Romo is a choke artist, that is fact.

He is a good QB, a top 5 playing right now. But he is no where on the list with Montana, Brady, Rodgers. They play big in big games, huge in huge moments very consistently. Not always, but consistently. I like Manning too, but left him off the list for the same reasons.

He has great games, big comebacks, but almost never when it is a huge game. His win in the Wild Card was the only one that comes to mind.

Definitely not saying he sucks, but he isnt going to be remembered as a great qb right now unless he does something big in the future, and he shouldnt unless he does.
To the point of comparing to Montana, Brady, Young, etc. I agree 100%. He's not there yet. But - coming up short in big games is also a product of the position he's been put in. Notice this year. Give him a half way decent defense and an o-line and he was absolutely lights out. In December and the playoffs. Case in point, last year's game in Denver. He took us down the field with less than three to go and put us ahead with what would have been the go ahead TD. In an absolute duel of a game against Peyton Manning. He actually out played him to that point. Our defense let's Manning come right down the field and score. It wasn't even hardly contested. Romo had to put the team on his back yet again and try to pull off the impossible. He throws a pick trying to squeeze the ball into tight coverage with the clock winding. He's blamed for choking. I don't see it that way. If you put the man in low percentage positions over and over again what do you expect? Same thing in the game against the Giants a few years ago in the win or go home game for the division and a playoff spot. Crayton runs the wrong route on a timing play for a first down in the redzone. Picked off. Romo is the goat. He had already brought us from behind in the 4th quarter in what was essentially a playoff game. Our defense let Eli and Cruz walk right down the field. There are literally half a dozen games like that. Any other qb on any other team would have an out. Romo is just a choker. He is second to Peyton Manning in 4th quarter comeback wins. With no running game to speak of before this year. We had a couple decent years with Marion Barber but for some stupid reason we never committed to the run like we did this year. The difference has been night and day. Outside of the first game against the 49ers Romo didn't cost us a single game this year. He won us several.

If that is a fact, he's less of one than any other qb in the league over the last 8 years save for Rodgers, Brady, or Breeze. That's a fact substantiated by stats (facts that are measurable). Where are your "facts".

Has he lost us a few close games trying to carry a team with a **** defense and little to no running game? Yep - you bet. He's almost single handedly won 5 times as many as he lost too ( or more). You can disagree with stats all you want. At the end of the day they don't lie. Then you'll say "Oh but he doesn't have a ring, or he doesn't have many playoff wins". So did a lot of great quarterbacks. Dan Marino comes to mind. Fran Tarkenton. Warren Moon. And many more. How's Peyton Manning's post season resume? He's considered one of the best to every play the game yet his playoff numbers outright suck. How many win or go home games has he lost? More than Romo yet he's criticized for it. It's horse**** and they all know it but get away with it because it's the cowboys - as many hate them as root for them.
I would love to have this conversation, but I don't remember any stats and I don't have the time to look anything up.

I was born, raised and still reside in Philly, I HAVE TO hate the Cowboys. It's like a law here. I have done true football fans that can go on for hours with legitimate reasons why including the originations actions during the strike.

I don't take the game that serious. I enjoy the game, love watching, etc., but I have way too many other things that demand my attention that I don't have the option. I want to, I just can't.

But here, no one, even Cowboy fans, think Romo belongs in that top five. Those guys are in a league all their own.

Packers aren't finishing drives. They could easily be at 35-0.

It will be an interesting second half.

Nothing funnier than seeing an 80 year old woman routing for a team while sporting her cheese hat. She loved that hat on game day.

Don't think that catch could've been defended any better. It was a hell of a catch and throw

Ouch. Handed Seattle that one. I guess that's why they are champions. I was sort of hoping they'd lose so everyone can get off the bandwagon.
