With all due respect (which isn't much)... who gives a rat's ass about Romo? His biggest accomplishment as far as I can tell was dating Jessica Simpson. 

As far as football goes, I have one word for Romo: Choker. 

Yet the NFL Network and ESPN have been wall-to-wall Romo. I truly don't get it. Decent regular season stats, but proved repeatedly that he wilts at the biggest moments.  And I just saw an article on NFL.com that proclaims Romo "The Most Underrated QB Ever." Seriously??? I need to add an emoticon of a green smilie throwing up for that one. 

It shames me a little that the sports media actually lured me into commenting on the guy at all... but enough is enough! 

P.S. -- The most dynamic personality in this pic is the dog. I bet the dog could handle the snap on an extra point in the playoffs, too. Just sayin'.

Romo will never be considered a great qb but he's was far from being a dud. Except for Bradshaw and Ben he would have been the best qb option for the Steelers in the past 5 decades. I suggest that might also hold for the majority of franchises in the nfl but won't spend the time to look at all those rosters and records.

I believe the only qb that would have changed the equation for the Steelers would have been Marino had they had the brains to draft him. Marino is a HOF caliber player yet I don't seem to recall him winning that many critical games and he lost the only shot he had in his one super bowl game.

Let's give Romo some credit. He had a solid record overall, steered clear of drug and abuse of women issues, showed up on time and gave all he had to win. That might not be glamorous in today's world but it suits me just fine and that image will sell well on network tv.

I also bet most of us would have been quite pleased to spend time with Jessica Simpson. Smile

Not sure how much that means considering we had the likes of Kent Graham, Mike Tomczak and Bubby Brister lining up under center between Bradshaw and Ben. Big Grin Congrats, Romo... you're a little bit better than the bottom-of-the-barrel. Let's write another story about you and crown you most underrated in history.

It's worth noting that Tomczak, Brister and Romo had similar success in the playoffs...  ;)

Sand... please tell me you're not drawing any kind of Marino/Romo comparison here, because there is none. NONE. ZERO.

All true. But you're missing the fatal flaw. He's a Cowboy. Therefore, he is only worthy of hate, ridicule and scorn. Period. I don't care how decent of a human being he is. He's dead to me. 

I think I've been very consistent on this.

I guess I never gave Romo much thought. I do hate the Cowboys (along with Ravens, Browns, *Pats** and Raiders). I don't think he is the most underrated QB of all-time, depending on what your definition of underated is ( A little Clintonese there). Please put Hillary in jail (did I type out loud).

I will say he 2nd best undrafted QB ever, only after Kurt Warner (I'm assuming Kurt wasn't drafted). Romo had fairly decent regular season stats, nothing spectacular.

I don't have a special hatred for any team or organization. I do have an intense dislike for some players, active and retired. Mostly those who had an ego bigger than their game or were felons. It may not be saying much that Romo was better than the garbage the Steelers drafted but I think, had he come to us during that time, he would have been a fan favorite. And the team would have had a better shot at a Lombardi.

Romo was a mid-tier QB playing for a fleabag organization.  If he had spent his early years concentrating on his profession instead of chasing celebrity skirts he probably would have had much more success.

What is this blasphemy I'm hearing?!

Tony Romo retired.
On the 3rd day he rose to CBS as a commentator to deliver us from Phil Simms.  Angel

Show the man some respect damnit!  Tongue
