Why does everyone get their food so fast at Cowboys Training Camp? Because there's no line.

Why does Tony Romo pay cash for everything? Because nobody will give him any credit.

abhorrent1: Came for the Tony Romo jokes. leaving disappoint.


Do you know what you call a 416 yard, 4 TD 0 INT performance by Tony Romo? A Cowboys loss.

Tony Romo once threw a ball so well even Roy Williams could catch it.

The net they pull up behind the goal posts for an extra point is actually just Miles Austin's mangled hamstring.

Why is Justin Bieber jealous of the Cowboys' receivers?

Their balls are always dropping.

There are no butt-babies in the NFL. Except Sanchez.

P0e: MagicBus: Joe Flacco:

3 AFC Championship games
1 Super Bowl win
1 Super Bowl MVP
playoff win in each of his first five seasons
would have gone to a second Super Bowl if Lee Evans could catch

So far I'll take him over Matt Ryan's 1 [lucky] playoff win

Tom Brady (first 5 years, including year 1 when he didn't play):

3 AFC Championship Games
3 Super Bowl Wins
2 Super Bowl MVP's
2 Pro Bowls

I think we have a winner for "best first 5 years"


I don't know, we better check the film on that...

For fun I'm gonna list the comparables each year (guy above him and below him on the passer rating charts):

2008: Shaun Hill (one above him), Seneca Wallace (one below him)
2009: Alex Smith (above), Jay Cutler (below)
2010: Peyton Manning, Drew Brees
2011: Eli Manning, Alex Smith
2012: Russell Wilson, Tom Brady

Well, his comparables improved quickly. I mean, he's no Russell Wilson or RGIII yet, but he might be as good as them some day.

As a Cowboys fan, I'm glad Bobby One-and-a-half-knees is the future of your franchise.

JohnnyRebel88: If Romo's receivers didn't drop so many passes, statistically he would be far better than his already awesome numbers. Romo haters are pathetic.


TIL that only Cowboys receivers drop passes.

grinding_journalist: Di Atribe: Misleading headline. This isn't about the best QBs through their first 5 years. This is an article about how awesome Matt Ryan is.

Here's a summary of TFA, because it's most certainly tl;don't read.

"Matt Ryan did! He's great. Look at these numbers. He's even better if you look at THESE numbers, which put him in the company of the greatest QBs ever. Now, here's a list I made of the greatest QBs ever- hey look at that! All of the assumptions and suppositions I made using numbers that suit my argument make Ryan one of the best ever! Now, let's look at some other numbers, totally different from before. These numbers also confirm he's the best ever. Now, if you take those numbers, divide them by these numbers, and put them in a chart, then he's still the best ever, which means he's the best ever. Also, numbers! I can use excel."


I like your journalism way more than the author's. When we get that pitch meeting together for the QB dodgeball league, I'm gonna nominate you as official NFLQBDBL blogger. That's how much I like you.

IAmRight: Part of me is gonna hate the Seahawks defense forever for allowing the Falcons to come back and win that game, allowing them to have a playoff win. No playoff wins is so much funnier than one.

Also, wow, Matt Ryan somehow succeeded with a team with two top-10 caliber WRs, a HoF TE, and mostly a decent running game, all while playing most games in a dome. Real impressive. If the Falcons had an ACTUAL stud at QB he'd post 6000 yards and 70 TD.


It's almost like football is a.... oh what do you call those thingies again.... is it.... a TEAM sport?

Hm, no, that can't be it. It's probably just two quarterbacks throwing balls at each other.

Aarontology: I want to ask the author what Matt Ryan's balls taste like.


5 years and only 1 playoff win? Probably bitter.
