Tony Romo

Cheers to you Tony,

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo may be the only signal caller in NFL history to be blamed for a loss in which he threw five touchdowns and his defense gave up more than 50 points. Yes, the TV genius class has become that comical.




NFL analysts across the country rolled their eyes at Same-Old Romo following the Cowboys 51-48 loss Sunday, after he became just the second quarterback in NFL history to score at least 48 points in regulation and lose.

Juxtapose that to expert takes on the 0-5 start of Eli Manning’s New York Giants. While Romo was matching big brother score for score, Eli was tossing picks to the wildly inept Philadelphia Eagle defense. Manning finished the day with three interceptions, boosting his league-leading total to 12, and added an astonishing three intentional grounding penalties. Where are the stat geeks on that one?

For years Cowboys fans have wondered just how elite Eli would be if he had to play behind Romo’s line, and trust his fourth-quarter leads to Romo’s defense.

Now we know: 15 sacks, 12 picks, a 64 passer rating, and an 0-5 record.

But the experts strike a different tone in their Eli analysis. Sure, they say, Eli’s throwing interceptions, but that’s because of the disgraceful play of his offensive line. Sure, they say, the Giants are winless, but that’s because of the staggering ineptitude of the Giants defense.

That’s all true. That’s fair analysis. Football is a team game that spans four 15-minute quarters and employs three phases – offense, defense and special teams – all of which need to perform capably to contribute to a win.

Where’s all that sage analysis been for Romo the past two years? Romo’s been running for his life at nearly every snap, playing through busted ribs and punctured organs. A beat up and constantly harrassed Romo was 9-10 the past two seasons in fourth-quarter comeback opportunities. Untold story: He brought his team back to tie or lead in eight of those 10 losses, and the defense failed to hold.

With the team rebuilding after a 6-10 season, playing behind a God-awful offensive line, supported by a historically inept defense and with no running game to speak of, Romo has been crucified among the genius class for going 8-8 the past two seasons.

Today the Giants are 0-5, and their quarterback is leading the league in interceptions. Why the tender treatment for Eli?

Great post.

Eli has given us 2 excellent SuperBowls!  HA!

Has it ever been Tony's fault?  Some people say, "NO!", I say, "Uh huh".  I DO fault Jerry first.  Tony was developing into a great quarterback, and Jerry bet the farm on him.  Tony had instant fame, fortune, AND pressure!  Tony isn't stupid; he knows what is expected of him, and he understands what he is following, with a professional football jersey numbered less than 12 in the Dallas, Texas area!

Great post!

I don't do stupid and you pretty much post nothing but stupid.

When you score 48 points you should be on the sideline, wearing a baseball cap and yuking it up. But no, with this defense Tony is out there trying to bail out a failed defense yet again.

The Cowboys scored the first 4 times that had the ball to begin the second half. The drives were 80,83,53, and 80. They all ended in a Romo TD pass, and you blame Romo

Last time I will post to a guy who channels Skip Bayless.

I read this explanation of Romo's interception at CBS Sports. It's the best I have seen:

With the score tied 48-48 and 2:04 remaining, Romo dropped back, looking for tight end Gavin Escobar across the middle. It's a pitch-and-catch we've seen Romo complete hundreds of times, a play he could probably pull off blindfolded. Except this time, the Broncos' pass-rush collapsed the pocket, Romo's plant foot got tangled with the right foot of left tackle Tyron Smith (see below). And what should have been a straightforward -- and relatively safe -- throw (green arrow) went FUBAR (red arrow) in the split-second it took Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan to make a diving interception in front of Escobar

[/url]

Eight plays and the final 1:57 later, Matt Prater kicked the winning field goal and the focus went from Romo's otherworldly 506-yard, 5 touchdown afternoon to those seven seconds that have come to define his career.

Its a great post by Night....but I already had told Adam...he was wrong in his post.

I thank you Bevo for the picture...you and I know I posted the video somewhere else about Tyron smith stepping on Romo's foot when he threw that INT.

But sometimes you just can't make the horse drink

Also...check out the Dlineman about to hit him. The thing is he had to make a play. It's second and 16. No way he can take another sack.

Context is something the uneducated never seem to realize. Peyton stood back there and picked and choosed who to throw to, while Tony was sacked 4 times and hurried on nearly every play..Still he outplayed Peyton..

Consider this..Six time since 2006, a QB has thrown for 400 or more yards and lost.. Romo has two of the six. The guy has never had a defense, say for 2007, when they went 13-3 and lost to the Giants because Patrick Clayton dropped two wide open passes..

Romo has never been able to score and relax, let the defense do their thing. No he is always put in the position of winning or losing..

Good posts by everyone, we are the Cowboy fans. We see the things that are wrong. Its football, and Damn are you not entertained!

Finally the viewing public realize how insane all the criticism is of Romo. They watched a guy play a near perfect game and then had to read some in the media blame him for the loss.

In the last two days the Wall Street Journal and Forbes Magazine have wirtten great articles defending Tony.

While the Skip Bayless, Deon Sanders and Stephen A Smith continue their insanity, the viewers watched a different game.

I have  one other stat I just read.

INTs in last 3 min of 1-score games since '06:

Eli 15 (220 att.)

Brees 13 (234)

Roethlisberger 13 (249)

Flacco 7 (136)

Romo 7 (272)

The thing with Tony, we could post good stats all day long. Tony's only chance is to win some playoff games or he'll never get the monkey off his back.

Stats aren't always true.  I find those hard to believe, but I will confirm or deny them for certain, after I look into them.

At first glance, I say, "no way".

Either Romo has had far more than listed, or each one of them have been in his most important game to that point.  This Denver game was not that important.  Not at all.

We aren't factoring in fumbles or slippery balls here either, just interceptions, and I still find it hard to believe, because it seems he's been hurting me in the waning minutes for a long time now.

Lets talk about the good stuff:  Romo has given us some great wins. (Just no important ones yet)  The guy must really frustrate a defense when they absolutely have him pinned, and he gets away and completes a pass for a first down.  Phenomenal stuff.

When he arrived in the NFL back in 2003, Dallas Cowboys quarterback was nothing more than a backup trying to make a team’s roster. I don’t think anyone at the time, including Romo, would predict that he would eventually become most polarizing player in sport’s history.

Oct 6, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (18) meets with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (9) at the end of the game at AT


We all know what happened last Sunday during the game versus the Denver Broncos. Tony Romo leads a spectacular effort to comeback against the best team in the league and in the end he was also the one to let it all slip away with his lone interception. Media members and idiotic fans don’t look at the fact that the defense gave up 51 points and never ever forced a punt on Broncos starting quarterback Peyton Manning. They don’t look at the fact that without the historic performance that Romo put up, the Cowboys would have been blown out by the third quarter. All they looked at is the “meltdown” that Tony Romo had.

That game perfectly summarizes the career Romo has had in the NFL. Started out amazing and fun and fizzles out in the end when you need him to be clutch. Romo’s record in win-or-go home games is 1-6 and his numbers go down in the month of December when games start to matter for the playoffs. People have stated that he is a quarterback with empty statistics and has no clutch DNA in his body. He isn’t a Manning, Brees, Brady, or Rodgers. They point to Giants quarterback Eli Manning as a man who has a clutch gene, as evident by his two Super Bowl wins. But, is that really how Romo is or did the sports world make this image.

Looking at just pure stats, which is the way to judge individual performances, Romo still boasts the highest quarterback rating in NFL history with 102.0 and also has the highest 4th quarterback rating in NFL history. The problem is that when he does make a mistake, it seems to be very memorable and even more heartbreaking. Remember Seattle? Potential game-winning field goal with less than 2 minutes left in the game. Make a field goal the distance of an extra-point and you hold on to win your first playoff game in over a decade. Yet, Romo fumbles the ball and has to run with it and gets tackled at the one-yard line. Or how about the pick to end the divisional round against the Giants. How about the mess in Philly to end 2008, the butt-whooping in Minnesota in 2009, or the letdowns in back to back NFC East “championship” games. Romo is blamed for all of it, even though his team were the perpetrators in more than half those games.

The real reason why Romo was picked off last Sunday is because tight end Gavin Escobar was bumped off his route, left tackle Tyron Smith’s feet got in the way, and the Broncos made a play. Romo did not choke and to say he did is just insulting to everyone’s intelligence. Be a smarter fan and look at the whole picture before you begin to burn Romo’s jersey in effigy. He is a good to great quarterback and is more than capable of leading his team down to the Super Bowl. Yet, he will always be remembered as a tragedy, just good enough to taste glory, not good enough to devour it. Is it fair? No, nothing is with being a quarterback, especially if you have the star on the side of your helmet. Until then, Romo continues to polarize the sports world.

Romo and the Cowboys are never going to win a huge game against a top level opponent, until they fix the defense.
We can talk all we want about the offense, but the Cowobys are score over 30 PPG and are 2-3.
I'm not sure the offense can do any more?

Romo just had the greatest game a Cowboy QB ever played. I can't believe with the guys we have on defense they suck so bad.

New scheme but somebody better get it together fast. Every week its a different problem.

Kurt Warner just said it best on the NFL network...."Somebody needs to help Tony" we need players making plays at all 22 positions.
mbc63

why blame tony when they lose ....
Jason Garrett is a simple minded 500 coach bringing down a quarter back  that has the desire to win .

garrett is not good for the cowboys nor is ole fake face .


 where is the defense and where is the will to win by all .

Oh where are you Jimmy Johnson


 good day .
Hawk

Hey ol buddy I was just getting ready to shut my computer off....Hell where is Switzer when we need him....oh yeah him and Jimmy are probably getting drunk lmao.

I think Jason is doing a great job and it will show in the end.

Mike Shanahan:
“I think the people that see Tony practice every day and the teammates know what he can do. But you do it as a team,” Shanahan said. “Everybody’s got to do it together. I know when I was with John going into the 15th, 16th year, you had the same people saying that he couldn’t do it throughout his whole career and then when he does it, everybody’s, ‘Ah, well, we knew he could do it.’ It’s the same old thing. You’ve just got to fight through it. You can’t listen to the critics and you’ve got to believe in yourself. And I’m sure that’s what Tony’s doing.”

Check this interesting tidbit out Romo - 1,523 yards, 135/188 pass attempts (71.8%),13 TDs, 2 INTs, 114.3 passer rating. Brees - 1,722 yards, 140/201 pass attempts (69.7%), 12 TDs, 4 INTs, 107.4 passer rating. Rogers - 1.331 yards, 101/152 pass attempts (66.4%), 9 TDs, 3 INTs, 105.5 passer rating Those are the top 3 qbs in the NFC this year and Romo is at the top of that list. I didn't even bother putting Brady's stats up, because he is far and away having a substandard year. Man if it were not for Peyton having a record destroying year there is no way you couldn't be taking Romo's bid for MVP serious. He legit is the 2nd best qb in the league this year. Damn you Peyton Manning

If Cowboys don't do something this year, it is the end for me, I'm done!
