    Re: joe flacco #74 on nfl network top 100



    I'm sure Romo will be much higher on this list than Flacco and it's for good reason.

    But look at last year when they won four straight games then lost four of their last five games - can you pin any of those losses on Romo?

    defense lets them down against AZ
    would be winning FG kick blocked
    Romo didn't play
    Giants rout them in the final game

    Everyone has their own opinion but IMO and I'm sure the opinion of the list makers, Romo is much better at this point in their careers.

    It seems your missing a simple point.

    Whether you throw 500 yards and 8 TDs or not, if you throw the interception or fumble the ball, and that leads to a game winning pick six or game winning field goal, your play resulted in your team losing the game. Period. Tony Romo has a habit of doing both of those things.

    you must have missed what spurred this discussion. Romo ranked 91 Flacco 74. The list makers in this case are current NFL players only, and they feel Flacco is better than last year and better than Romo.

    You don't make one mistake and lose in football when you are throwing for 500 yards and 8 TDs unless the other team plays that well. Romo has played well enough for the Cowboys to win most of the time.

    Great Romo stats are good but they still lose. I'll take the wins, they're what matters.

    Good stats means you play well which is a great indicator of good football instead of fraudulent football.

    LOL - OK then. A guy with an unprecedent 102 passer rating, 31 TDs, 10 INTs and 5 fumbles can't be as good as a guy who had 20 TDs, 12 INTs and 11 fumbles I guess.

    Somewhat like power rankings; they're meaningless but something to talk about...

    They are not that great.

    And stats can be made to fit what ever argument you want to make.

    State the obvious and answer your own question, nice.

    Romo has played well enough for the Cowboys to win most of the time.
    So? What kind of qualifier is that?

    Unlike power rankings, this list is voted on by the players. Sure its just another meaningless list...but a little more interesting nonetheless.

    Unless Romo wins a SB, he will always be seen as a choke artist...and rightfully so.

    and until flacco throws for 4500+ yards and 30+ TDs some fans will still point to him as the problem. Superbowls make people forget things quickly. Like how eli didnt even complet 60% of his passes until his 6 th year, now hes a champion and talked about as being "elite". The day will come for flacco.
