He also threw 36 TD passes! And you have to remember that not all INT's are the QB's fault. Does he throw too many? Probably. But he also makes a lot of positive plays as well.

After this debacle, I bet Jerry Jones is having buyer's remorse on that deal. Yes, you want to keep Romo, but this makes two straight seasons where the guy basically melted down in December/January.

I don't have a problem with Romo's contract. I think giving him that money was the right thing to do given the circumstances.

As for being a choke artist, he followed up perhaps the most infamous playoffs gaffe since Jackie Smith in the Superbowl by becoming the first number one seeded qb to lose in the divisional round in NFC history. I think he is going to have to prove us wrong on this.

Don't forget, Peyton was a choke artist before he won a superbowl...and he still might be. What would we be saying about him now if he hadn't authored that comeback against the Pats last year (which by my count is his only succesful playoff comeback to date, having failed with a chance to win at home two out of three years)?

Anyway, this is Romo's cross to bear. He made things worse for himself by diving into the limelight and he's going to have to win a Superbowl - which is tough for even the greatest non-choking qb to do - before the world gets off of his back.
