This goes back to the Cabo perception issue again. As Troy said it did not affect Romo's preparation of the game. Its what people perceive that was the issue because as fans some of us are too fickle to know the difference.


cant really say if a couple extra days studying the playbook or watching film would have helped him or not....could be they spanked the Giants so bad twice that year in the regular season that the team and Romo took them for granted....don't know.

The Cowboys played fairly well in the first half against the Giants, but our D let up right before half time. In second half, the Giant D played much better than our D. Romo did not make mistakes and the last INT was a Hail Mary pass, which by design was forced to make a play on 4th down.

I give more credit to NY and how much better their defensive line played. Pretty sure their secondary was banged up.

Yes, let's see what former players and even current players have to say about the infallible Tony Romo:
 
First, let's start with Tony's current teammate, Jason Hatcher:
 
 

 

Now, for another current teammate who was not named:

Let's see what Michael Irvin had to say after last seasons failed ending:
 


 

http://blog.zap2it.c...t-redskins.html

 

And now, let's see what Deion Sanders said: 
 


 

http://blog.zap2it.c...t-redskins.html

Deion made those comments after last year's loss.  Look at the bolded part.  Deion was EXACTLY right -- ONE YEAR LATER IT'S THE EXACT SAME RESULT!!!

Now, for Donovan McNabb: 
 


 

http://cowboysblog.d...ant-to-me.html/

 

Ex-Texan Travis Johnson: 
 


 

http://cowboysblog.d...s-a-thief.html/

These are some alarming quotes. Especially the one from Johnson. But they all are for the most part correct.

Just got a warning for calling someone Romos loverboy. I didnt want to take these actions because the names I get called really dont bother me, but from this point forward I vow not to get personal and if someone does get personal with me I will report you. Immediately. 

 

I want to see how this is going to work out.

BUT. A couple of days throwing the ball around with your pass catchers cant hurt. Maybe just maybe you pick up that some arent completing their routes and you correct that BEFORE THE PLAYOFF GAME. 

 

I do know one thing. Being in Cabo didnt help this team at all.

Not sure why you would continue to bring up the off days that all players received or where they spent time off. Are you suggesting that a few passes would have helped the team? Seriously?

 

After 16 games and throwing for 4211 yards, 520 passes with 335 completions, 36 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions, Tony needed more practice throwing the football.

 

It seems that you do not realize that in 07, he was #2 in TD passes, #3 in total yards passing, #5 in pass attempts, #6 in completions, # 9 in pass attempts, with a QB rating of 97.4.

 

It sounds like you are saying that the lack of practice was the major difference in the outcome of the game. That is total BS. Tony still had decent numbers passing 18 of 36 for 201 yards 1 TD and the Hail Mary INT.

 

Should we ignore the performance by our defense, giving up a 52 yard TD pass and another TD in under 46 seconds as time expired in the first half. This does not explain the lack of passing between Romo and his receivers. It explains a breakdown with the defense.

The defense was a large reason why we are 8-8. Anyone who want's to ignore that fact is a moron and needs to learn how big people play real football.

 

Not everyone blames Romo for everything, just a half dozen or so here who choose to ignore the rest of the team.

Not everyone is blaming the defense for being in large part why we are 8-8. Well, everyone except those same half dozen or so. Players, ex player and analyst pretty much all agree.

YEP!  :D

Are you serious with this garbage?  These articles are not even close to being up to date.  The most recent is Hatcher, which was back in September 2013.  One article is from August 2013 and the two from Irvin and Sanders is from 2012.

 

If you're going to try and introduce evidence to support your claims, the least you could do is get current articles.

You can disregard it all you want, but the fact remains that Romo has been our QB for more than just this year.  He first joined the team in 2003.  He has put together a resume over those years, and you have to look at his ENTIRE body of work -- after all, that's what those guys are doing.  You can't just pick and choose the parts that suit your personal fancy.  All the comments were made by people who are far more knowledgeable about playing football in the NFL than anyone on this board.  People can consider their comments to be garbage if they want to, but the fact remains that the comments were made.  NOT ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO MADE THOSE COMMENTS HAS COME OUT AND RETRACTED THEM.

exactly...the point aikman was saying is you just don't do that kinda thing....you know darn well  guy like brady or Manning would be doing all they could do during the week to get better in some way....as you said....at that point in Romos career....I think he was so overjoyed to be a starter that he was looking at the glory and Hollywood stuff instead of the hard work it took to get there.  just as aikman said....you cant be too big for the game.   That was simply 3 days of wasted time no matter how you spin it.

 

I don't blame the HC...the players are the ones who took this action.

http://cowboysblog.d...ant-to-me.html/

http://cowboysblog.d...s-a-thief.html/

 

 

These are some alarming quotes. Especially the one from Johnson. But they all are for the most part correct.

 

Using Hatcher, Irvin and Deion is OK...even if the articles are old and misleading.

Using anything from McNabb is reaching.

But using Travis "Bust" Johnson is really letting your hate show.

Next we'll be quoting Bill Clinton on the virtues of honesty and fidelity....

Why ANYBODY was asking Johnson ANYTHING is mind-numbing.

That ANYBODY would use Johnson's opinion to make their point is even more mind-numbing.

For those who don't know who Travis Johnson is (almost everybody) Tim MacMahon wrote a nice article about him:

http://espn.go.com/b...about-tony-room

He was the Texan's 1st Round Pick in 2005 (16th overall)...for that wasted pick (and 1st Round money) they got:

2 sacks, 0 forced fumbles and 0 fumble recoveries in FOUR years...they cut him with one year left on his rookie deal.

He got 1 more sack in 2 years in SD and is now out of football (looking for attention).

Y'all would be crucifying Jerry (and Johnson) if he'd wasted the 16th pick on Johnson...now you're quoting Johnson...WOW...

 

Since we are using Johnson's knowledge of the game, let's see what other words of wisdom he had in his 08/13/13 interview:

 

When the discussion turned to Schaub, a quarterback who like Romo, has only one playoff victory in his career, Johnson said his former teammate can take an NFL team to levels Romo cannot.

“Matt Schaub will get the job done,” Johnson said. “I believe in him. I played with him and I’ve played against him. He can take this team to a Super Bowl. Can he win a Super Bowl? I don’t know. It’s a whole different ballgame once you get there. But he can take this team to a Super Bowl.”

 

 

The answer is now clear...

the Cowboys need to dump Romo and pick up Matt Schaub...he can get us to the Super Bowl...Travis Johnson said so.

Travis Johnson "believes" in Schaub...and we have some "experts" that apparently believe in Travis Johnson...

no we should not ignore the play of that defense.....that defense held the giants to 90 yards rushing....and barber alone had 129....that defense held manning to less than 200 yards passing.....that defense held the giants to right around a total of 300 yards.....and by the way we dominated the run game, time of possession and total yards.  he biggest thing is Eli threw 2 Tds and NO ints and completed almost 70% of his passes to Romos 50%....and Romo had the pick.....Sorry..but the NFL doesn't recognize hail Mary as an excuse.
