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.

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.

Gotta disagree with you there, Aikman is one of the better color guys around.

I feel Aikman plugs himself too much, and when he does talk about the game he has to talk about too many personal issues/excuses, like "the reason Johnson couldn't hit the hole there was because he had an issue with his wife this morning." I don't think he adds value. But maybe that's just me.
Also, his monotonus voice makes me want to fall asleep, and he has a cartoonish head. haha

with this reasoning ladell betts should have made the pro bowl. does anyone have more rushing yardage over the last 5 games then betts? its all about media hype. last year trotter made it after only starting 8 games. now come on, is this really enough to justify being a pro bowler? if it is, then betts got ripped off

If you could find the numbers (stats) to show why JC should have all the attention please post them as I would be intrested to see what your looking at. I'm not saying that he is not improving with each game but its not like he is doing what Young is doing in Tenn.

I'm not saying he should be a pro bowler or anything like that, just that NO ONE is talking about him and they have raised Romo to the status of Cult hero. You practically can't turn on the TV without hearing the name ROMO.
Tony has 17 td's and 12 int's, so while the TD's are good, he would project to 21 int's over the course of a full season. How come no one talks about that?
So I'm not saying JC should get all the attention, or even more of the attention, my point is to say that Romo should NOT get all the attention and most certainly not be a pro bowler.

Amen. Homo has been showing that he is not infallible. Now, he certainly wasn't helped by TO suddenly playing defense against him and knocking down his passes instead of catching them, but Homo by no means looked like Pro Bowler out there yesterday.

Re: Who is Tony Homo?

Romo's luster appears to fading already, and the NFL wants to strike while the iron is still holding at least some heat. Not hard to figure this one one out: "Guy with goofy name from small school unseats famous veteran and wins for hard-ass coach." It's a pretty simple script, really.

Hopefully the bubble has permanently burst for Romo, I didn't see any goofy grins on his face yesterday! The Cowboys will hopefully be one and done again in the playoffs!
