You are correct for now, but in the next generation, people will be saying the same about Ryan, Schabb, Stafford, and who knows maybe Romo.

If Romo was an elite QB then there would not be any question about it. He's too skittish and makes bad decisions too often.

Do your friends know what a two face you are? Of course and they don't even care. You obviously didn't come to this thread to say something about Tony Romo.

Returning to football, Romo reminds me of Manning that he can look like Hall of Fame material one game and like Ryan Leaf the next. Super Bowl rings do not automatically make a QB elite. The first two Giant Super Bowl victories were led by good, but hardly elite QBs in Phil Simms and Jeff Hostetler.

Marino was one of the greatest pure passers ever. Strong, accurate, and he often made intelligent decisions..

<quoted text> I totally agree! Romo has less to work with than Staubach or Aikman did (ex. Smith,Irvin), however; until Romo wins a "Super bowl" like Staubach or Aikman did, he will never be considered in the same elite class of former Cowboy qb's! Trust me, I have been a Cowboy fan since Don Meredith.
I agree I my self have been a fan from the 62.
I'm just tired of not winning. Romo is great at times but then he will over throw the ball by 2 feet when needed most.

Troy Aikman, Rodger Starback was way better. Know your history before u say things. These quarter backs went to the Super Bowl. If y'all think Romo gonna take u there keep dreaming.
Romo is the best option the Cowboy's have for now. Who else is out there? The Cowboys are lucky Romo does not seek a trade to a Superbowl contendng team. Start with Romo, and build the team around him. Romo is in the top tier of qb's.

Top tier?....Romo is talented, but not top tier....Cowboy's are like Chargers, over-rated and overpaid....

Romo is hardly top tier, but he is likely the Cowboy's best option for next year.

Romo is a good, but not an exceptional QB and would likely be good enough to start on perhaps 50-60% of the teams. The Cowboys have far more pressing needs than to upgrade at QB. With a better supporting cast, he could possible win a Super Bowl. After all, not all Super Bowl winning QBs have been elite QBs and even some of the so-called elite (i.e. Bradshaw and Namath) were vastly overrated.

I disagree that Namath was ever vastly overrated as a passing Qb....i recall, 1969 i think, when he passed for 4000 yards in a 12 game season, and thought no one would ever touch that....he was the best pure passer of his day, just like Marino was.....

It was a different NFL back then. It's a passing league now, gotta stay off the receivers and can't even give the QB a dirty look without incurring a penalty. Today it's hard to win a SB without having atop 5 or 6 QB. Romo isn't one.

His career completion average was barely 50% which was very low for a starting QB even in that era. Namath did not have the football smarts to match his arm, much like Bradshaw. The AFL used a 14 game season since it's inception until its merger with the AFL.
