i don't get the romo hate. he had a beat up receiving corps, no running game to speak of, and a defense that allowed over 25 points a game. i'm not sure what you can expect him to do.

If he was really like Romo, his shot would have hit and blown up his neighbor's washing machine.

Which, of course, would also be full of explosives, because it's Texas.

farking stupid.

He threw ONE interception that resulted in a Redskins score on Sunday. People forget about the great month he had before that game. I know it didn't translate into a playoff berth for the Cowboys & none of that "matters" any more. But the Cowboys would've been a 3-13 team without him. They wouldn't have been anywhere NEAR a "win & you're in" situation without him. Fark all of you haters & fark those stupid redneck fairweather fans. Go be Texans fans & act like you always were.

I don't hate Tony Romo.  He's kind of a goober, but he's harmless.  And sure, he gets a lot of unwarranted focus, but he's the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, and it goes with the territory.   But, honestly, I don't think anyone in the NFL has ever looked up at the scoreboard, seen two minutes left, realized they are up by one score and said, "Romo's getting the ball back.  We're in deep trouble now."  Especially in a game that matters.  I'm sure he's a nice guy, and tries hard, and sure, he needs to start wearing his hat like a grown man, but give the guy a break.  He's an okay quarterback on the most scrutinized team in the NFL.

He hasn't been spotted with a backwards cap in well over a year. Let it go.

The rest of your post was good.

I hope Romo ends up some place like Oakland and destroys the league.

It would be a dick slap right in the face of the Cowboys organization.

If this were the 1850's, Jerry Jones would be a slave owner.

*yawn*
Romo has to win a Super Bowl to get any respect, and the Cowboys won't be able to do it considering they're in the bottom 3rd or bottom 5 in pretty much every category but passing.

He probably won't win one in Dallas. His career will (most likely) serve as a warning to anyone who follows him that the only way you can succeed in the NFL is to be on an absolutely stacked team, or have the biggest horseshoe in the world up your ass.

And not to mention an offensive line with an aversion to pass protection, and a HC/OC that, after four quarters of Jim Haslett saying "fark you, I'm bringing the house", had no idea how to counteract it.

I don't even like the Cowboys and enjoy poking fun at their occasional incompetence, but I honestly feel terrible for El Romo.

To be fair how are you going to win the game when half your team's on IR (or just hurt) and the GM's crap? Maybe Jerrah should take a page from Dan Snyder.

Im not a Romo hater but its ok to admit that hes just an average QB. He will never be special and he will probably never win the big game. He will just be one of those McNabb types who despite some decent chances now and then will never get it done.

The choice for Dallas is, How much longer do you play with an average QB while everyone around you is drafting and getting lucky with new QBs. Surely they are going to want to get in on that dance eventually if Romo doesnt break out of his shell.

Argue about the surrounding cast but you cant say luck, RG3, Wilson, Manning all have Byrants,Austins and Wittens to throw to. Yet they are somehow getting it done...

The part of the team that Romo has any control over is very, very good.

Dallas D by yards per game was better than Atlanta, Washington, New England, Indy, Giants.
Dallas D by Points per game was on par with Washington and Indy.

Now I am not claiming that the Dallas D doesn't have its problems but if the above teams can do as well as they did this year and only the giants share the same fate of being out of the playoffs should tell you something. They played decent enough to get into the playoffs. They didnt excel and push the team in, but they also weren't SO bad that they were the reason they missed out either.

If Romo can get just one Super Bowl ring, and plays say, another 4 years at least, I don't know how he's NOT in contention for a HoF spot.

He'll be in the vicinity of 40,000 career passing yards by then, currently has just under 65% career completion percentage and a solid 2-1 TD:INT ratio. Sure, we can hobnob about his era being one of a "passing league" with rules "heavily slanted in favor of the offense", but you still have to give respect to longevity. Plus, just looking at "numbers", he blows by Aikman in...everything.

On a related note, Di, you are the only Texan I can claim to know. Why did they blow up a washing machine? Is this like the cash for clunkers program we had here for cars but with explosives?

It's almost like the Romo hate has backlashed into ridiculously over zealous defense of the guy.

He only threw ONE interception that led to a score? Oh well let's start casting his bust for Canton then.

He had to deal with a bad running game, bad defense, and injuries? Welcome to the NFL. Ask Aaron Rodgers if he's ever had to deal with anything like what poor poor Tony has had to go through.

Bottom line is Romo is decent to good, no more no less. People who hate on him because he's the QB of the Cowboys are just as stupid as the people who think there's some media conspiracy to make him look bad and he's somehow had to deal with more bad circumstances than any other QB.

There doesn't have to be a conspiracy, he makes plenty of bad plays on his own. If you're such a Romo nut hugger that you think every interception he throws is someone else's fault and never his, well good luck with that. Enjoy another season out of the playoffs with him as your QB.

If you're such a Cowboy hater you can't see the guy is actually upper echelon in the league compared to a lot of the dreck playing QB in the NFL, I hope you're not a Jets, Chiefs, Jags, Browns, Chargers, Raiders, Dolphins, Bills, Titans, Cardinals, Rams, Eagles, or Vikings fan. Because your team would be instantly better with Romo. And there's a couple teams that would just as good with him, if not better...Bears, Panthers, Falcons, Ravens and Texans all come to mind.

The Dallas defense gave up 28.5 ppg in the last 6 weeks. You don't go to the playoffs doing that. In terms of points per game allowed, there are no playoff teams below the Cowboys. They are a worse defense than both the Colts and the Redskins, and the Redskins lead the league in rushing yardage. The Colts are 10+ spots above the Cowboys in basically every other ranking except passing - putting them close to the middle. That's how bad the Cowboys are.

We talked about this yesterday. The year the Packers won the Super Bowl, the "bad defense" gave up 14.3 ppg in the last 6 weeks of the regular season on their run to the Super Bowl, and then gave up 19 ppg in the playoffs. They were only a "bad defense" in that they were mostly backups.

You could get tons of yards on that defense but they were fantastic in the redzone and masters at turning the ball over. Total yardage they looked like ass but in point differential they were off the chart.

So seeing as how total yardage= quality of defense, people called them bad.
 
2013-01-03 04:39:38 PM  
In fact, to elaborate on people who remember the Packers as some god-awful team being dragged to the playoffs, here is how they compared to the rest of the NFL at the end of the regular season:


Green Bay Packers (2010) Statistical league rankingsTotal Offense (YPG): 8thPassing (YPG): 5thRushing (YPG): 22ndPoints (PPG): 8thTotal Defense (YPG): 9thPassing (YPG): 5thRushing (YPG): 18thPoints (PPG): 2ndThe Packers weren't a great rushing team, but the rest of the team was in the top 10 in the NFL in most categories. THAT is how you win a Super Bowl. You don't drag a team that is bottom-5 in most categories to the Super Bowl, I don't care who you are.
 
2013-01-03 04:41:24 PM  
Gah, that was all nicely formatted. Stupid editor. Point still stands. They were top 10 in every category but "rushing yards per game" and "rushing defense".

I wasn't there for the argument, but I thought he was talking about the receivers who continually dropped passes that hit their hands and O-lineman who only blocked if they had another's help. Dom's defensive scheme was simply brilliant that year: take the risk for the turnover everytime. Paid off. The rest of Rodger's work proves how talented he is, and I've argued with Packers fans at bars when they say the defense is "horrible." They're actually pretty damn talented.

Oh man, if you want to see that in action, the Cowboys were the poster-children for that this year. One Cowboys o-lineman actually laid a hit on Tony Romo, and I can recall at least 6 different sure TDs bouncing off hands this season. Not to mention Dez Bryant missing the game-winning TD by a fingertip because he braced his fall.

I'll type this again, since you must have missed it in the previous thread.

In rushing offense, the Cowboys rank 31st, at 1,265 yards.
In rushing yards per attempt, the Cowboys rank 30th, at 3.6 yards per attempt.
The Cowboys are the 3rd most penalized team in the NFL, ranking them 29th.
The Cowboys defense was 24th, allowing 25 points per game.
In the last 6 weeks of the season, the Cowboys defense gave up 28.3 points per game.
In terms of defense per pass attempt, the Cowboys defense came in 27th.
In terms of defense per rush attempt, the Cowboys defense came in 27th.
In kickoff returns, the Dallas Cowboys were 29th.
In punting, the Dallas Cowboys average 40 net yards, putting them at 23rd.
The Cowboys intercepted 7 passes this year, tying them for 32nd.
The Cowboys recovered 9 fumbles this year, tying them for 20th.
The Cowboys were -13 in turnover differential, making them the 3rd worst in the NFL (so 29th).
In total offense, the Cowboys rank 6th, just shy of 6,000 yards of offense.
In total passing, the Cowboys rank 3rd.
The Dallas Cowboys finished 8-8.

That's the difference. You can say, "Well there are other teams that did better and are as bad as the Cowboys in this one area."
But look at all the areas. The Cowboys were a BAD team. This was not a playoff squad. They over-performed to get to 8-8.
You can blame Tony Romo all you want, but without him they wouldn't be in the top half of the league in *any* statistical category.

No, we're quite aware of Dallas not using Stick-Em and how they constantly run the wrong routes. Luckily (for me and Pack Friends!) those drops didn't become a tip-drill for the opponents secondary.

I still remember the crossing route that hit Jordy right in the hands during the SB. They ran the same route the next play and Rodgers made an even more accurate pass, this time for a completion. The dragging kicking and screaming works well there.

Actually, in some categories, the Dallas Cowboys would be improved by putting up Eagles-like numbers.

But if we take, say, the average QB in the NFL... Sam Bradford. He's terrifically average. No chance Sam Bradford gets them 8 wins. None.

That's the difference. You can say, "Well there are other teams that did better and are as bad as the Cowboys in this one area."
But look at all the areas. The Cowboys were a BAD team. This was not a playoff squad. They over-performed to get to 8-8.
You can blame Tony Romo all you want, but without him they wouldn't be in the top half of the league in *any* statistical category.


I could go through and cherry pick stats too but im on the train home and cannot be bothered. my point is two teams made it with the same handicap. but they had better qb performances. average isnt good enough in the nfl anymore. you need better.

As much as I love you, Di, I gotta be honest: Dallas would have won Sunday if it wasn't for Romo's Jake-worthy performance.

I'm sick of providing supporting arguments and then having people dismiss them and disappear. If you want to believe something, say "it's just because I believe it" not "I can't be arsed to back up my thoughts because I'm such a busy man." I don't know how many times I've provided reasons for my defense of Romo to get "well I'm not going to look at the stats". Of course you're not, because you're a moron who doesn't understand anything about football other than whether or not the guy with the low number on his jersey is going to Disney World.

To conclude, GTFO and take your fail with you.
