I thought I was boned but shockingly they pulled through thanks to Rivers going full-on Romo with two INTs at the end that absolutely killed his team's chances of winning.
I love how it's gotten to the point where Romo has become a verb. We all know what Romo means (and that meme above hits the nail on the head... no matter how good he is, they still lose).

I follow @PeytonsHead on Twitter, and he calls all interceptions #AirSanchez. Recently he's started calling fumbles #GroundSanchez. Even though Schaub and Eli have been extra horrible these past few games, and Sanchez isn't playing, he keeps using the Sanchez terms! I laugh.

Raiders release Matt Flynn.

I bet he's on the first plane to Tampa.

He's made just under $15m the past two years (as in, he's been paid that amount and has it in the bank). I'd take that money and retire. That's practically winning the lottery.

If people are willing to keep bringing him in as the "savior", I'd keep playing.

Retire and do what? It's not like he's working that hard for the money right now, I'd keep on doing it as long as people are willing to pay for it. He'd have just as much free time either way.

Oh, absolutely. But if he should end up like Tebow, unwanted by any NFL team, he's not exactly hurting.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I went to the Cowboys/Broncos game sunday and all I can say is that I hate fellow Cowboys fans more than any other fanbase. I love Romo. His biggest problem is that he plays for the Dallas Cowboys. He put the team on his back when nobody gave the Cowboys a shot against Denver and all I heard walking out of the stadium was that we needed to fire our QB who just turned in one of the best games since the introduction of the forward pass.

That team never does a damn thing to take anything off his plate. He's been shit on for the last 8 years by the media and his own fanbase and yet still suits up every Sunday and gives the team a shot. When is the last time he played an ok game and the defense bailed him out or maybe Demarco Murray took some of the pressure off. Romo is sitting at 12 TD's and 2 INT's with a QBR of 114 right now and they are 2-3 on the season. Meanwhile, Rob Ryan is laughing his ass off in New Orleans right now as the 70 year old Monte Kiffin has just endured the third game of the season in which his defense has given up over 400 yards passing. Part of me wants Romo to go somewhere else where he doesn't have to put up with this shit.

The guy has nerves of steel playing the most scrutinized position in the NFL on one of the most hated franchises in the NFL. Nobody would give him shit if he had played the same way for the Bengals the last 8 years. He had five 4th Quarter come from behind wins last year and has 18 in his career but you will never find anybody willing to acknowledge any of those. You're alright Tony.

I'm sorry but I just can't go back to that awful QB merry-go-round of Quincy Carter, Vinny Testeverde, Drew Bledsoe, Chad Hutchinson and Drew Henson.

End Rant.

^^ I think no one will be happy unless Troy Aikman in his prime steps onto the field.

Yep. Which is where 90% of that sense of entitlement comes from with Cowboys fans. I love Troy but he didn't have to deal with half of the shit that Romo does. The worst thing that ever happened to Dallas was Switzer winning a Super Bowl. It pretty much gave birth to the Jerry Jones we have now that he thinks he is the smartest guy in the room.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

~10 minutes into the Bears/Giants game, and Eli Manning has completed two more passes to Bears players than Jay Cutler has.

It is so bizarre with Eli this year. He looks like a five year old lost in a furniture store this year.

He's currently on pace to throw 40 interceptions this season. The all time single season record is 42.
