It takes more than one player to win a Super Bowl. By your logic Trent Dilfer was an amazing quarterback. Romo never played with a running back of Elliott's caliber. If Romo put up the same numbers along with the same playoff results with any team other than the Cowboys he'd get more respect. Cowboys fanbase has a lot of delusional expectations and the rest of the fans love to hate on 'em.

Dak may prove to be the better quarterback over time but a lot of the Romo hate is hyperbole.

Huh? What are your thoughts on the AFC then if you think the NFC is weak? I think this will be one of the more competitive NFC playoff years.

The Cowboys would have been a better team had they benched Romo long time ago but Jerry refused to listen and kept a revolving door of running backs and receivers thinking that was going to solve the problem.


Dallas needs to admit Romo was/is highly overrated and is largely responsible for how bad the Cowboys have been. Dak and Elliot will continue to do well and I'm happy they're bonding and making sure the chemistry stays strong between them and Elliot rewarding the offensive line for protecting him.


All Bryant and Witten have to do is stay consistent and I'll put money that Romo wouldn't have won 4 straight games let alone 12. I'm no Cowgirls fan but I want to see them succeed now that Romo is finally benched.
If Romo were healthy and had never been injured, I have little doubt Dallas would not be 12-2 as they currently are.

I haven't seen the Cowboys in enough situations where they can handle being down in the fourth quarter. They've really had an easy schedule all year and jumped out early in a lot of these games and not to say they should be penalized for this. Dallas is about to enter an NFC playoff field with a lot of good offenses and some of them have some playmakers out there. How will Dak respond down 4 with five minutes remaining to the Giants and that front seven pressure? Can the defense make a stop if Aaron Rodgers needs 40 yards with 35 seconds left to get into field goal range or stopping Russell Wilson?

I just watched the Ravens/Steelers game tonight and Pittsburgh reminds me of Dallas with the same strengths and weaknesses (poised qb, elite rb, elite #1 wr, questionable defense). However there's one huge difference. In the biggest Steelers game of the year down by 10, Ben/Bell/AB were relentless and looked unstoppable when they needed big plays and that's just a killer instinct that it could be their last window to make a deep run. With Dak and Zeke just started, are they going to have that same killer instinct when they need fourth quarter points?

romo has never really had the support around him like prescott has. 2014 he did, and the cowboys lost in the second round of the playoffs against green bay. demarco murray had a great season running the ball, and that was the key for dallas, no one dimensional offense.

romo himself has been rated in the top ten QBs in the league consistently, but the lack of a solid running game, and an inconsistent defense has let the team down regularly. you cannot dump the problems of the defense all on romo. he didnt let teams score 35 points in the second half of a number of games.

this season everything is coming together for the cowboys. the running game is strong, the passing game is moving the chains regularly, there are few turnovers by the offense, the defense is stopping teams, especially late in the game.

as for the losses to the giants, the first game could have been a cowboys win had williams got out of bounds and stopped the clock instead of trying to extend the play, and let bailey kick a field goal.

the second game against the giants was a titanic defensive struggle, neither team did much offensively. and it could have ended in a regulation tie, had bailey just had another foot of distance on his one field goal attempt.

in the end you are wrong, dallas didnt get lucky, they outplayed their opponents. and they have gotten better as the season has progressed.

will the cowboys win out? i hope so, but this is why these games are played, anything can happen on any given sunday. prescott can have his best game ever, and still the cowboys can lose.

You do know that Dallas beat the Steelers right? So that pretty much voids your whole Steelers/Dallas comparison.


However I agree that they will be tested in the Playoffs but as someone else mentioned that's what the playoffs are for and only time will tell what the true assessment of the Cowgirls is. How many times have the Giants performed poorly but got lucky during the playoffs and won the championship.


That is what you call lucky, not 11 STRAIGHT wins and topping the entire division acquiring home field advantage. Like I said I'm not cowgirls fan but you have to give credit where it's due.

There's no way the Lions beat them in Seattle, I doubt Washington beats them in Seattle either, but the Giants or Green Bay could definitely take them out in Seattle.

Guess how many playoff games Dak & Zeke have won?? 0! 1 is better than 0.

Makes you WONDER how they ever got down 10 points in the first place???
