RG3 Gets All Dr. Phil With Tony Romo

35 posts in this topic

I do feel bad for Romo when it comes to all the ish he takes. That O-Line was Swiss cheese and the coaches didn't adjust very well to the constant blitzing. Oh well, at least I don't have to listen to Cowboy fans during this post season.

Griffin knows he wants Romo to stay on a division rivals team. Dallas is just so dug in with that guy.

must be nice to throw for 100 yards and win a game, if Romo did that Dallas would lose by 30.

this last game not withstanding, which Romo does deserve a ton of criticism for, it really is ridiculous. He is the only QB that every time his team loses there is a national referendum as to rather he should be gotten rid of. I mean this was a "playoff" game, but we hear this same narrative all throughout the season, be it week 3 or week 13, everyone and their mother knows Dallas is not a good team, their OL is among the worst in the NFL, defense is consistently 20 something ranked, owner/gm a buffoon, worst running game in the NFL, one WR made of glass, the other has to be told what routes to run,,,,listen to all the NFL fans and experts on ESPN and they will tell you all of this is true..........but then the second they lose....it's all Romo's fault and he is the one holding them back, even when he plays great, last week they lost to the saints, Romo threw for 440 yards, 4 td's, 0ints (two in the 4th quarter, the last one tying the game with 15 seconds left) and there were people blaming him for the loss....not the defense that got shredded for 600 yards and allowed the saints to hold the ball for 40 minutes.

There is not a QB out there that has won anything with a team as inept as what Romo has. Man that RG3 (who I actually like) is being called "clutch" this week and he's the anti-Romo...guy went out and completed 50% of his passes, threw for 100 yards last week and rushed for 50..meanwhile his RB put up about 200 yards..I mean jesus, what QB would not have been able to win in that situation?

Romo is awful in big games. How many coaches will this guy kill in his career?

Hey rookie, shut up.

This. I don't think any vet would appreciate a rookie coming up to him and saying that. It's one thing if you have been in the League for years. He would've been better just telling him "nice game" or "see you next time".

I agree with all points, but consider that if Romo were in Buffalo, and not 'America's Team' in Dallas, this would probally be the case. You can't melt under the spot light if there is not one on you.

i agree, it's purely a function of being the Dallas Cowboys QB which is why it's probably the toughest place to play QB in the NFL, fans in Philly ot NY might boo you more if you play bad, but the national media doesn't kill you over every single loss.

“Hey Tony. I just wanted to say to you, don’t listen to what anybody else is saying about you. You’re a great quarterback, man. And this game doesn’t mean anything,” Griffin said to Romo, in comments that will air Wednesday night on Showtime’s Inside the NFL.

oh really?? doesn't mean anything? I thought it was a you win and you're in type of game.. could have fooled me.

lets not be dramatic here.

Vick

Flacco

Rivers

Sanchez

Smith/Kap

Weeden

Gabbert

just off the top of my head

It happens to every QB who is questionable and recently has struggled, Dallas is just a hugely publicized market in the NFL due to their success 2 decades ago...and because of a strange obsession with a celeb owner who would have fired anyone else who has done the job he has a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time ago.

i'm not talking from local media, who does that for almost any QB without a ring, I'm talking about national media, and outside of Flacco ,Rivers and maybe Vick, all of the rest of those guys stink and aren't even starting material in the NFL, I mean those guys might play a decent game once a month (Kap and Smith was just a QB controversy). Rivers has struggled far more than Romo recently, so has Vick, you don't hear anything nationally. Matt Schaub and Matt Ryan have played for awhile...never hear anything about them not winning a playoff game, and the national media blew up after Romo 2nd season when he had not won a playoff game. The expectations are just different when you play for Dallas and that makes it one of if not the hardest places to play.

It's no harder to play in Dallas than it is anywhere else in the NFL. You want to shut your detractors up? WIN. I understand what you are saying about media pressure but, on the flip side, Tony has also enjoyed every minute of celebrity that has come along with being the Cowboys' QB (particularly earlier in his career.)

Obviously, it's not all Romo's fault (nor do I think he's the biggest problem there) but leading your team one playoff win in over 6 years as starting QB on what have been generally talented teams deserves all the criticism it gets.

So if Romo played for the Jaguars he'd have it the same? Think about that for a sec. Also, have you seen the offensive lines hes played behind?

From a football standpoint, yes, he would. I realize that there are additional media pressures playing in a big market but it doesn't make the actual game any different. And along with that additonal pressue came additional celebrity which Romo clearly enjoyed. If you want to enjoy one, you can't complain about the other. Eli Manning took just as much heat & proved them all wrong by winning.

Yes, his lines have often stunk (which is why I said I don't think he is the biggest problem.) I realize that Romo is not all to blame and I do believe that he is a good QB. But I still think that he is missing an "it' factor and will believe that until he proves otherwise. He is largely responsible for putitng his team in elimination games in the first place (which is great) but also equally responsible for blowing them on a bad play or two once he's there (bad).
