My feelings aren't affected either way. Just thought you'd like to know how strange it sounds when you refer to a 27 year old NFL player as a kid.

Romo has looked good rebounding from the horrific first half. Thats something not everyone can do.

Holy Cow dude....

He IS a kid in the context I was talking about...meaning his experience in the NFL. (You know, how I was talking about the talk of him being a God was premature because he hasn't played a lot of football).

Romo is overrated and this game proves it.. the best thing i got is that hes got the nerves of a spineless 3rd grader .. what would be better is if Eli manning had a kid.. but as far as i know he doesnt.. so.. spineless 3rd grader it is..

You can't let it take away from what he has done the first 4 games of the season, he has the ability to make incredible plays and win games. It's games like this one, where he had 5 ints that seperates him from players like Brady and Manning. The Cowboys won this game in spite of the offense, but when it came down to it, Romo drove down the field and scored a TD to put them in position to win.

Romo is a playmaker. Plain and simple the guy makes things happen. Does he make boneheaded throws on occasion? Yes he can be a bit reckless, but its the same mentality that allows him to play like he has nothing to lose.

It's that type of thinking that's lead people to believe Brett Favre is the greatest player in the history of the game.

I think Romo is a good quarterback, but he's way too cocky and you could tell how embarrased he was in that game, when he was doing ****. Hopefully it brings him back down to earth abit, if it does i wish him luck- he could be great.

Romo is a good quarterback.

The NFC East has great quarterbacks, and all of em can play Q for my team. Id take any of em. I feel all 4 of em are capable of winning football games and taking a team (if built properly) to the next level.

Maybe Romo isn't as great as his first couple of games indicated, but that doesn't mean he sucks by any means. He's a good quarterback.

Ah, how did I know? To me, this only confirms what I was trying to say. The guy has been a complete trainwreck, has nearly killed his team's chance to win, and he comes in, keeps his head up, stays confident and composed, and makes the plays that he needs to make in order to give the team the W.

I love how people are trying to say "U thought ROmo was teh goD!!11".

This thread was begun to refute the naysayers who were contending that Romo's supposed "late season breakdown" was evidence for him being either a bad QB, or a harbinger of his inability to play the position at a high level for anything but a stretch here and there. I never said that he wouldn't take his lumps, or that he was the best QB in the NFL, or even that he would be an elite QB this year(which he obviously is, whatever you may say). All I said was that he was getting bagged upon in the offseason by idiotic reasoning, and he was proving that reasoning wrong. He has done that, and my statement still stands.

As for this game being proof of him not being in the Brady or Manning class (disclaimer: I'm not saying he is in that class, but read on) take a peek at this stat line:

20/35- 201yds - 0tds - 4ints - 34.0 rating

Romo's line last night:

29/50 - 309 yds - 2td - 5int - 49.9 rating

The first stat line? Brady on 11/5 of last year against the Colts. So does that mean that he doesn't belong in the Brady or Manning category now? O rly.

Well, maybe that's too good of an opponent for you. How about his game against the horrible KC defense in '05:

22/40 - 248yds - 1td - 4int - 42.5 rating

Let's not get carried away with one game--and, really, one half--of bad play. Romo made some really bad mistakes that will normally cost you games. Fortunately, Dallas' defense played like a dominant unit last night despite being on the field for way longer than you would want them to (Buffalo held nearly a 10 minute TOP advantage before Dallas' offense used up the last 3-4 minutes), and Romo had the grit and wherewithal to keep his composure and lead his team to victory after all he had done to give the game away. That says something about a QB, I don't care who you are. Even the best QBs have their bad days, just as I showed with Brady above. If Romo does this on more than a once-or-twice a year basis, or continually does it in key positions, then people are justified in saying he's overrated or not a very good QB. Until then, he has played 9 halves of great football, and one half of horrible football. I will take that from my franchise QB every day of the week, and twice on Monday Night.
