The offensive line gets patched up in the offseason, and you have the decision of starting Romo or Vick at QB for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Times yours

Vick is still capable of occasional miracles. Romo is just Romo.

Not that either of them would be on top of my list, of course...

Probably Romo, but doesn't he lead the league in INT's?

Yup he's got 13, Cassell is right behind him with 11

If I was forced to choose between the two, I'd have to go with Romo

Ouch!  5 in a row for Romo?  The eagles arch enemies QB?  Make it six.  Romo and I do hate him with a passion.  Doesn't say much for Vick at this moment.  We are all picking someone who can't win the big game and chokes in the clutch.  Is there another option?

when Romo has a bad game, it can be BAAAAAD....but if you look at his stats over the years, he's actually not the interception machine that you would think he is. Hes put together some excellent seasons at QB. He has all the fundamentals needed to be successful, he just loses his mind from time to time. Vick, to me, was a great athlete who ended up playing QB for some reason. He has very very few of the fundamentals entailed to play the position.


Another thing about Romo, I think he has never played with either of great pass protection or a great running game, because his GM is a moron.

Romo's skill set would be a good match for the WCO, but if Big Red is history and we move on to somebody, anybody, as long as they're not from the Holmgren tree, I'll take none of the above.

Oh' I "have to", well then OK I'll take them both. Romo as our "starter" and Vick to run the wildcat and for whenever we play jersey since they can't beat him.

This is the Eagles MB. Did you really have to ask that question and expect people to say Michael Vick?  Why waste your time assking a question you ALREAY know the answer to.  I hate when people do that.  :nonono:

Romo easily. Vick is terrible on a consistent basis. Romo will throw 4-5 INTS in 1 game and usually string together a couple average-good games. He eludes the rush decent, knows how to step up, and is more football savy than Vick....which isnt saying much. Im sure the #1 Pro-Style QB on Rivals.com right now is more football savy than Vick

Romo - and I would have made that choice in every year Vick has been here. His success was simply a matter of giving the Eagles the last big of what was left in his legs and teams adjusting to making him pass.

It really isn't close between the two.

Vick is and always has been a horrible quarterback. He was at one time one of the best athletes to ever play the game though.

Romo is having a bad year, I think he may be the unluckiest QB on the face of the earth with his WR's causing probably 8 or 9 of his int's...that said, I still think he isn't playing great, he's missed some throws he usually makes, and I think he has started trying to do too much, which is another factor in the turnovers, He needs to step back, let things happen a little more. As of now I'd say he is having a down year, but this is more the exception than the rule, if it continues into next year...my tune will be different

Romo threw 10 ints last year, and about 9 the year before, with only 2-3 lost fumbles, so I think he has earned a little slack. I think Romo would be great in a WCO too

Another thing about Romo, I think he has never played with either of great pass protection or a great running game, because his GM is a moron.

that is Romo's biggest problem, when he throws a couple int's, he goes into the tank and can't recover, he's said it himself that after a couple bad plays, rather they are his fault or not, he tries too hard to make up for it....and that turns into more turnovers. I thought that was exactly what happened in the Bears game I actually thought this past NY game he did a good job of pulling himself back up and regaining his composure and taking what was there.

not only has his OL sucked, and not much of a run game, but his WR's have been less than reliable, outside of Witten, TO was good for 1 year in Dallas (2007) and Austin had a great 2009, other than that his WR's have done him no favors.

Yea it sucks for Romo because easy 90% of the INTs this year are squarely on bad route running
