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

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!

and still no stats on Jason posted but more Romo crying. Jason gets coverage people talk about him.
Look stats are really just that. Romo has produced some wins for the cowboys which is better than stats.
EX.
Matt may have better numbers than Vince but Matts team is in no position to make it to the playoffs and they play in the NFC WEST! Vince team plays in the AFC SOUTH and is right in the thick on things.

If you dont want to hear about Romo turn off your tv and then write to ESPN instead of crying about it on hear.
Romo has hit some bumps lately but hes a lot better than what Dallas had a QB.

Now that Jeff Garcia is hot your going hear a lot about him. I guess your mad at him now.

Wow, what an asanine post. You are actually comparing a QB with 20,000 passing yards, 130+ TDs with a guy who has started in 8 games, and has been mediocre at best in 3 of those?

The only thing anyone has said is that Romo backdoored his way into the Pro Bowl, and that the media is going a little crazy over him before he has actually proven himself. If he maintains his level of play, he is going to be a very good QB for the Cowgirls for a long time. But make no mistake - he ain't the second coming.

what are you talking about and reading? I didnt compare Jeff to Tony. Just saying that fella will probably be making post about Jeff now because hes getting more attention than Jason Campbell.

The QB position itself is a media hype machine.
Are you saying that Tony Romo is the entire reason the Cowboys are 6-2? If so, could it be reasonably assumed that Romo could be forced on to any other team in the league and win 75% of his starts regardless of his numbers?

Romo deserved the probowl because he has accomplished more in his 9 starts than anyone in the NFC has in 15, exception to Brees and Bulger who also made the pro bowl.

And the Cowboys wouldn't be where they are with Bledsoe, only because Bledsoe was horrible, not necessarily because of anything special Romo did.

Garcia should get more attention than either of these players, because he has actually accomplished something, and is, now, actually accomplishing something. Homo is 6-3, which is fine, but 2 of those wins (Carolina and the Vagiants) had nothing to do with him.
