I don't blame Witten obviously but it really does suck to know that if he just runs one more yard into the endzone Romo is viewed as genius and Dallas wins...

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

You say right here that he choked away 2 playoff games and you still DONT see why people call him a choker??? Answer me this, how many times have Rodgers, Brees, Brady or any of the elite non choker QBs lost a playoff game because they muffed a snap or something dumb like that? Nobody is saying Romo chokes every single game, they are saying he chokes far more often than virtually every other NFL QB.

You could argue that peyton manning is a bit of a choker too and I wouldnt disagree.

Peyton has a ring tho and many other comebacks and a great career where he's been everything on that team... he has something to balance his failure against.. Romo doesnt

3 straight wins against your Eagles...including a post season win

or maybe McNabb choked?


Romo doesn't have a ring, but he has certainly led Dallas to MANY wins

Oh stop it already... Romo is held up by some as this elite Qb put he doesnt have the resume that the others do...


People are still waiting to see Romo shine forreal.. HE had a shot on sunday night and blew it in the spot light.. He'll get criticized for it..


I mean, who threw more playoff season ending picks than Brett Favre? But Brett also has amazing comebacks on his resume that balance out the chokes...

Big Ben, Peyton, these guys have resumes that keep them from being labeled for the mistakes they make...

Romo is held out there, but he chokes more than he saves the day...

You know if they are questioning somebody like Eli? they are gonna give it to Romo

Ben under pressure, in big games, crunch times had made plays. Romo hasnt.

Ben is defined as a clutch QB.

Your arguments rival Skip Bayless, they simple make no sense whatsoever.

Alot of people think McNabb did choke... I dont, but I think the Eagles offense as a whole needed to change and it has..


Alot of QBs have led their teams to MANY wins... doesnt make them elite QBs

yes every elite qb has choked at some point or another in their career... romo just does it WAY more often than the other elite qbs. Ben is not always consistent but he has avoided choking enough to earn two rings, and nobody gives a **** about Orton I thought we were talking about elite QBs. Yes there are plenty of scrubby choker qbs... Alex Smith probably chokes as often as Romo...

it isn't thier resume it is just the rings...thier resume as far as W/L is probably not different than Romo at all...

I AM CRITIZING ROMO for the Jets loss...that pick to Revis was just a flat out choke...HE LOST THE GAME, IT'S ALL HIS FAULT...I'll be the first to say that...



I am just sick of hearing people acting as though this is something he does every other week...that is the first time Dallas has ever blown a 14 point lead in the 4th in our history, obviously that doesn't happen often
