    Re: Our boy Pretty Flacco or Tony Romo?



    And here is all time listed. Romo 6th highest for active qbs. Like I said previously guy only gets called out for his "un-clutch" plays never the plays that win ball games.

    I can't believe this is even a discussion.

    Re: Our boy Pretty Flacco or Tony Romo?

    In the end, to me they are the same level of qb.

    If the ravens have had Romo for last 6 years and cowboys had flacco, as a fan, would you rather have flacco as your qb. I would think that is too close to call and I can't positively say the team would get better to make that switch.

    How is it that Romo, who not only has one single playoff win to his name, much less the fact he doesn't even GET to the playoffs as often as the Ravens, is comparable to Flacco?

    The fact this thread exists two days before one QB is prepping for his 5th year in the playoffs where he has at least one win per year, and the other QB will be watching from his couch AGAIN, is really disheartening.

Good quarterbacks can win Super Bowls so I'm happy with Flacco. Romo, on the other hand, shows flashes of bad, great, good from week to week.
    If a QB could truly carry his team by himself, Joe was doing it in the Pats game last year. That was probably his all time best performance. He put us in position to win the game.

    But as we saw, there's really no way a QB can truly carry the team by himself. He put the ball in Lee Evans hands in the endzone, but Lee drops it. The only argument you could make would be "well shouldn't he have found a way to win it on the next play?"...except there's a reason the team you are playing against made it to the AFC Championship.

    What I would say about elite vs good QBs....elite QBs can make a team work with almost ANY cast of characters. Good QBs can make it work, provided they put all the pieces in place. Case in point is how, when Peyton Manning goes on IR, the Colts go from perennial contenders to 1-15. Peyton was good enough to make average players look like better players. He made a bad OL look decent. He made average WRs put up near Pro Bowl numbers.

    I would agree that Joe, to me, is a good QB. If you give him a bad OL, he can't mask that. If you give him average WRs, he's going to struggle to get the ball to them. If you give him no running game to take the heat off him, he won't be able to shake the extra coverages. But, if you build a solid team around him, he'll get you far enough for the rest of the team to carry it onwards.

    Did you look at the date of that article?
    May of last year.

    Before this season began.
    Before Romo choked.
    AGAIN.

    Like to see what Romo's stats would be with Cam as his OC.
    With Pitta, Torrey, and Boldin instead of Whitten (HoF), Bryant & Austin.
    Going up against the AFC North 5 games a season, none of them in a dome.
    I'll even spot Romo, Ray Rice so he has one of the best safety valves in the league.
    As for the O-Lines, meh probably a wash between us and the 'Boys.

    I don't' know if I can really blame Garrett because he has no real authority. The Cowboys organization reminds me of the Al Davis Raiders.

    It's a dumb standard for fans. While I certainly want the players to have the focus of "Super Bowl Champs or Bust!" during the season, as a fan all you can really ask is that they play their ass off every week, give you meaningful games late in the year, and get into the playoffs more often than not. If they're doing that, you're a fan of a good team.

    Winning Super Bowls requires a lot of luck. The Giants beat the Patriots twice in the last decade largely on luck. A luck "helmet catch" in one, a miracle catch by Manninghim in the other, with Welker dropping another miracle catch. The ball bounces funny, and crazy things can happen.

    The winner of the Super Bowl isn't necessarily the best team in football that year. It's who got healthy and hot at the right time.

    The closest I ever saw a QB come to winning a Super Bowl by himself was Elway in the '80s.

    It's funny: I never see any criticism of Brady on that pass Welker didn't catch...

    Which brings me to my next pt, how many SB has Joe won? The same as Romo. I'm not even being negative about Joe, but comparing to another QB who I think is good..... AND STILL PEOPLE GET PISSED AND THEIR PANTIES IN BUNCH.

    I see no benefit to posting an opinion on this board...if your not a regular you get your ass-chewed.

    5 years in the league. Has won a playoff game every year.

    He's not perfect, but he's our QB. Go Joe
