Default endless talk this week about how Romo chokes REPEATEDLY..could someone break it down?

I'm not going to say he isn't a choker anymore after that game...he DID choke

but this week I have heard a million times about how this has been an on going struggle from Romo, his choking...how he does it OVER AND OVER AND OVER...

today Skip Bayless (yeah I'm a fan now lol) defended Romo...he asked someone to break down Romo's choking...


everyone points to THREE games:


1.Seahawks muffed snap (sigh, THIS is the real reason he has the rep, it is his defining moment so far)

2. New York Giants playoff loss...(Dallas was the favs here, and they lost...Giants went on to win it all, I guess the Brady choked too)

3. Vikings playoff loss...(Dallas got crushed here and the oline was gone...also THE VIKES WERE THE FAVS TO WIN!!!...I fail to see how Romo choked this game)



so am I missing something here?...where is the "REPEATED CHOKING"?...people act like he throws every single game away...it just isn't true...


until that game against the Jets...his entire choking rep came from THIS:




^^^ there is his rep...that is where it came from

NOT 100 choked games...ONE GAME

people really need to stop acting like he throws every other game down the toilet...it just isn't true

the game last year against Tennessee? didn't he get the ball, under a minute left for a game tying drive, and throw a pick?

well, he just threw the last game down the toilet. he has been a major factor in the 'boys playoff woes. and you pointed out three games. thats repeated, even if not to the extent that the media overhypes it (thats what we get with 24/7 sports media, they need something to talk about, like the ridiculous "story" about the fdny hats in mlb. how the **** is that even newsworthy?)

Skip Bayless defends Tony Romo and criticzes Aaron Rodgers after his Thursday night game.

Such a fanboy.

this is basically what happened in the Giants game...you have little time, one drive...and the QB has no other option but to force the ball to the WR in a super heavy pass-D

the odds of an INT in that kind of setting are so ridiculously high....it's just not fair

okay so anytime he has a sub par game and Dallas loses that should be chalked up as Romo choke job?


that isn't fair...every QB has games that are below thier standard...

whatever excuse you want to make about it, he was put into a high pressure end-of-game situation and choked.

the "it's just not fair" sounds like TO's "it's really unfair"

it is unfair...

that is like missing a half court shot to tie a bball game and calling it a choke...


it's not a choke...it's just super hard to hit

I'm watching what Skip has been saying and he is getting owned.

Keeps blaming Witten for why Romo fumbled.

but his seem to happen when the pressure is higher (national game, end of the season, playoffs). It may be a little over the top and overstated (much like lebron the choker is), but there is some merit to it.

It's like turning it over at mid court in a basketball game and not getting a shot off.
