Broncos - Ware's the defense? Topic

10/9/2013 12:00 PM
I'm not arguing Romo is clutch...just not the choke artist he's made out to be.  It's just always amazing how much blame he gets, when the Cowboys have had ACTUAL problems on their team for years.  He had one of the greatest QB performances of all-time Sunday, and he's getting all the blame for the loss.  Incredible.

We actually agree on this last game for the most part I think, but while he never should have been in that position based on how he played up to that point, he did make the terrible game-altering play, and there is a pattern of that.

You can't throw a pick inside of two minutes inside your 30 in a tie game.    You CAN'T do that and say "Hey, I had a great game other than that."

The Titanic was a nice cruise except for that sinking part.

And while you can certainly argue that we view Brees and Manning through rose colored glasses because of their past postseason success, there's nothing about this list that is kind to Romo.

He had a legendary game other than that.  He had a great game with it.  Because he threw for 500 yards and 5 TDs.

Find the list that shows the opposite of this, and see if Romo is on that too.

I think that's your job.

Jerry Jones thought Romo played a great game. He also said he had a great game in a Tony Romo chokejob in 2011. espn.go.com/dallas/nfl/story/_/id/6965896/dallas-cowboys-jerry-jones-says-tony-romo-outstanding-vs-new-york-jets

It all depends when it happens. If Titanic sank 100 yards from shore and no one died, guess what: we're not talking about it.

If Romo throws that exact same pick within 2 minutes of the first half ending, Denver kicks the FG, and the rest of the game plays out the same, people are saying "Damn, what a game for Romo - he almost led his team past the mighty Broncos."

Manning had another great game, but statistically, Romo outperformed him. Manning also had a pick (which was much more of a gimme INT than Romo's) but no one's talking about that.

Food 4 fodder... The latest league-wide mentality, & approach to a gameplan
against Peyton, is simply 2 just keep-up with him...

If a QB who throws for 500 yds, & 5 Td's, & still can't beat Peyton, then let's try
& see if a QB throwing for 600yds, & 6TD's can beat him...

There's is NO defense that can stop Peyton... The NFL offenses have no other
option, but 2 try & keep-up... Romo tried... He followed the gameplan... For the
QB's ahead on Denver's schedule, this is the only realistic approach...

Did you miss the "You can't throw a pick inside of two minutes inside your 30 in a tie game" part?

Sure didn't. Did you miss the part where it was a tie game? Should Romo just politely take a sack there so he doesn't turn the ball over? He took a chance, it didn't work out. It wasn't a ****** throw and it doesn't take away from the fact he played a great game.

Romo should not get any of the blame for this loss. Period.

What do you think is the better outcome?

3rd and 22 while forcing the other team to use two timeouts before the inevitable punt?
Interception while giving the other team the ball on your 25 with three timeouts inside two minutes?

Seriously, QBs are paid good money to make good decisions and give their team the best chance to win.

I'm a Cowboys fan and I love Romo.  The Cowboys can't run the ball and they can't play defense.  Other teams know this.  The Cowboys have to pass and pass a lot and Romo keeps them in games even when other teams know that's all they have.  When you play a lot of close games and you have to pass, you're bound to have these moments.  He's got a better interception rate than either Aikman or Staubach had in their careers.  What he hasn't had that they had is a great defense (not to mention no Tony Dorsett or Emmitt Smith).  I know the QB is the single most important position on the field, but it's still a team game and you need a lot more balance than the Cowboys have to win consistently.
