Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I'm finding myself cheering for the Dolphins and Cardinals in this final weekend. I'd love to see some long suffering teams at least get a taste of the playoffs.

Who wants to guess he somehow leads them to victory over the Eagles this week and a deep playoff run, further throwing Tony Romo's "legacy" into question?

How does it feel to be one of Tyler Thigpen, John Skelton, David Carr and Caleb Hanie? None of them are superstars, but the Cowboys pulled Kitna out of teaching math instead of one these guys.

Between Cowboys fans crying about Romo being a choker, and Bears fans lining up to run the best quarterback they've ever had out of town ... ugh.

Kitna is not starting though. Kyle Orton will get the nod. The only reason they brought in Kitna is because he filled in for Romo during the 2010 season when Romo missed 10 games. He knows the offense better than anyone else.

As for Romo's legacy, it will have to wait for next year but you will never see me begging to trade a QB with 31 TD's 10 Int's and a QB rating of 96.7. People need to understand that franchise QB's don't grow on trees.

The Packers will have Rodgers back for the Bears game. Glad to have him back- I just hope he isn't too rusty.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Tony Romo had season ending back surgery. Let the Kyle Orton playoff run commence! Although, the way to the Super Bowl should now be clear for the Cowboys since Romo is the one who's been blowing games in December.

Kyle Orton lost his job to Tim Tebow. Let that sink in.

I've been a Broncos' fan all my life. I'm well aware of Orton's body of work.

Well in the case of these two teams, maybe short term suffering.

I hope he is. The Bears need all the help they can get to be able to lose the first playoff game.

Well, Tebow did win a playoff game

I hope the Eagles don't fall asleep at the wheel with Romo out like they did with Adrian Peterson.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Part of me agrees with you. Could you imagine Cowboys fans if Orton wins!

Eh, Cowboys fans suck regardless. It's hard to imagine them more obnoxious.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Pro Bowl selections released. Not a terrible amount of surprises, but as always snubs are the result of not enough roster spaces for talented athletes.

One that sticks out for me: No Pat McAfee? Easily responsible for the best play by a punter this season.

I would say it's been the Cowboys' hilariously terrible defense that's been blowing games for the past few years. They put up 36 points against a Matt Flynn-led Packers team and still lost.

I know that the narrative is that Romo throws interceptions in the fourth quarter. Looking at late and close (within 7 points), Romo has thrown eight interceptions during the last three years, tying him with, wait for it, noted chokers Tom Brady and Eli Manning. It will also shock nobody to find out that Romo has thrown an extremely high number of passes in that situation (nearly twice as many as Eli, actually) thanks to starting every game and being on a team that's been exactly .500 for three consecutive years.

Romo's overall line in that sample, for whatever it's worth: 191-296 (64.5%), 2393 yards (8.08 YPA), 18 TD (6.1%), 8 INT (2.7%), 98.6 quarterback rating. That's basically identical in all aspects to his career rates, shockingly so actually.
