I dont think we should be worrying about anybody but the redskins and the horrible situation this team is in.

Also the guy who said he hates Tom Brady, are you serious, how could you hate a guy that plays the way he does, three superbowls in 4 years and still stays humble the whole way through, great QB who doesnt get the publicity he deserves
In reference to Tom Brady, I agree that he's probably the most underrated QB in the NFL. He actually plays pretty well when it matters most, as opposed to his heavily hyped comtemporary Peyton Manning. I like Peyton Manning too, but the man just falls apart come playoff time. It is getting harder and harder to see Manning joining the likes of legendary sports figures such as John Elway and Phil Mickelson as guys who finally broke through after years of coming oh so close. Maybe it will happen someday, but I doubt it.

#56fanatic good synopsis on Tony Romo.

The guy made the Pro Bowl after 8 starts cant do much better than that. There are not many great qbs in the NFC and he is a top preformer this year and deserves it.

when the season dies for the skins do you guys usually talk about cowboys? there are many threads on the boys right now.

Re: Who is Tony Homo?

Can't take away the fact that Tony Romo has had a good year and pulled the Boys out of the fire, for the moment. I think his selection to the Pro bowl is more a testimonial of the relatively low QB quality in the NFC rather than his..........greatness.

How many other threads are on the cowboys???? Actually I don't see too many. This thread was started because the media and not Redskins fans are making a big deal of this guy. Ill give credit where it is due, Romo has been successful and no one can take that away from him. All I am trying to say is stop beating this thing into the ground, don't really want to hear about him anymore.

He deserves it over the numerous other NFC QBs with better stats and have played THE WHOLE SEASON? I think not. It's all a popularity contest. Hell, Vick has better numbers and made it last year. It's all about the flavor of the day.

There are really only two "anti-cowboy" threads right now. The other two started out simply as news articles. I would think the Parcells coming back thread and the TO spitting thread can be found on most other NFL boards especially NFC East teams.

I agree, Vick deserves to get in, his team is in the hunt, he broke the single season rushing record by a qb. He deserves to go.

Well, don't get me wrong. I'm not Vick proponent whatsoever, I just feel like Romo is getting in based on media coverage alone.

Re: Who is Tony Homo?

Romo has had a ton of hype no doubt, but he's also performed very well as much as I hate to say it.

Does anyone really think the Cowboys would be where they are with Bledsoe? I don't.

Re: Who is Tony Homo?

I agree. I just don't think he's deserving of a Pro Bowl nod after just a few games. Hell, there were PLENTY of players last year doing better than him at their positions and didn't get the hype he got, and guess what? They didn't make it either.

It's all the media hype machine.

Your putting too much emphasis on numbers and not the outcome. 6-2 and a playoff spot is what people are looking at, not stats. Romo's stats, if you dont think he deserves a pro bowl are awesome. Highest qb rating and completion % in NFC. You guys all know QB's will always get more attention than any other player on the team.

The QB position itself is a media hype machine.

Re: Who is Tony Homo?

There are other situations, namely people like Damon Huard who held down the fort after years in obscurity. Where was the hype for him? He didn't make the Pro Bowl and had similar numbers.

He didnt keep his starting job is the main difference there. Had he been able to keep it, maybe he would of went. Then again there is much more of a selection of productive qbs in the AFC not NFC.

I mean im not just being a bitter skins fan, I mean come on the guy wins a couple games with loads of offensive talent around him and everyone is hanging from his nuts. I really hope he starts blowing it. Someone needs to tell the NFL network no one outside of Dallas cares. I can deal with a program about an established qb, someone who has proven he is good maybe. but come on. I don't know it just really pisses me off.
Actually, I feel they push any Cowboys player.
Look at Aikman...come on, he's not very good as a commentator.
Emmitt Smith, he's still everywhere for some reason, always making guest appearances.
Jimmy Johnson is a constant on the Fox pregame show.
Worst of all, Michael Irvin...holy cow this guy could murder someone and still be on TV.
At least Aikman and Smith are decent people, but Irvin?


Why has Jason Campbell received NO publicity, but Romo received god like status? I hope Romo chokes on TO's pickle.

It's all about timing. He played well in the first half of the season but that's basically been forgotten now that Green is back. Plus the AFC QB situation is much deeper than the NFC. You know it's deep when Brady doesn't make it, which is actually very surprising when you think about it, he's been the NFL golden boy for years now.
