Re: Around the NFL Week 5




When you look at it, you realize it was a spectacular play by the defense more than a bone headed throw by Romo. The throw was accurate and on the money. The defender was BEHIND Escobar when the ball was thrown, and he dove to make the interception.

But Romo had Murray wide open, with no defender near who could make such a great play.

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

Romo forced the throw into traffic with a wide open checkdown guy sitting right there in front of his face. I don't know how it can be seen as anything other than a mistake on his part.

Sources: #Panthers have begun laying groundwork for a possible coaching search, doing background checks on candidates. 1 candidate knows.

Quick flip, bad mechanics sorta indicate that he wasn't sure about it but felt pressure.

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

In all fairness guys Manning threw a INT late in the game as well, and it was a bad throw. It happens, Romo is just always dogged more than other, y are Jay Cutler and Eli Manning not getting flack for their games as of late? For some reason people just hate Romo

The giants may get Jedaveon clowney. That would be scary for the NFC East with him and JPP.

I think Mannings receiving core is slightly worse than Brady's was back in 2007; goes to show how Peyton's doing with Great players and how Tom did with Great players, if you want to go there in the whole Brady-Manning debate.

Matt Schaub is who I thought he was, an overrated system QB. Johnny Manziel would make the Texans a Super Bowl contender next year should he get drafted there.

Colin Kaepernick is so overrated. Putting him in the same class as Luck, Wilson and Griffin is like putting Romo in the same class as Brady, Manning, Rodgers and Brees--it's offensive to those great players.

The Vikings now have 3 below average QBs on their roster. Sad, because that team has a lot of talent.

It's early, and I'm not jumping on the bandwagon yet, but the Saints look like the 2nd best team in the NFC. First would sadly be Seattle, who I think will beat New Orleans head to head in a few weeks when it's played in Seattle. Keep in mind Seattle is without their 3 Key OLineman right now.
Little early to call Kaepernick overrated. He was a big part to getting his team to the SB last year and almost winning it. He's had a few sub par games this year... part his own fault, part the offense is missing it's best wr and Davis has been hurt. The same things that are being said about him are being said about RG3. It's just too early to tell.

Re: Around the NFL Week 5

Making the right play when it matters most is more important than the rest of the entire rest of the game combined. It becomes a binary situation...execute or lose. None of the stats and great play matter if you cannot execute properly at the most critical time. It has become irrefutable, based on empirical evidence, that Romo cannot get the job done in high-pressure end of game scenarios. I'm not into generalizations but after a while if just becomes fact. Dallas is going to have a near impossible road to hoe trying to win a SB with Romo as QB.

Their secondary has always been shakey, but now with them not being able to sustain a pass rush, its going abused left and right.

Multiple problems for the giants.
I gotta wonder how much the death of Coughlin's brother is affecting his mindstate right now. I can't figure out why they are playing so bad.

Tune in and watch their OL and DL play.

Both lines are horrible.

We'll agree to disagree. The player was open when the ball was released. That's just a spectacular play by the defender. Nine out of ten times that pass is caught by Escobar. In hindsight, sure the RB should have been the guy he went to. Sometimes, you can do the right thing and the opposing player just makes a better play. Point in instance is the TD catch over Claiborne. Dude had fantastic coverage on the WR, and simply couldn't play it any better. Another one is Sherman's interception of Kaep.

If RGIII had done this, nobody would be saying a peep about it.

To me the better choice was the easier throw, which was his checkdown. Especially considering the situation there was just no need for him to take an unnecessary risk and throw into a tight window.

If RGIII did the same thing I might be inclined to give him a pass since he doesn't have nearly the same experience that Romo does at this point.
