Trust Bostonians, Bledsoe has been an over-rated burden for every team he's played for. Especially ours. A big arm is fine, if it can connect with receivers more often than defenders. Oh, and what about winning, something Bledsoe fails to do. His sell-by date is long past.

I think it good for the team, and it won't give media guys like Dan Patrick, a chance to try to stir up a "QB Controversy" at the beginning of next season.

The road was already shortened last year dude. Nobody but THE COWBOYS beat THE COWBOYS at the end of the stretch last season. Even with BO, i mean TO and all of the hype, we were at one point #1 in our division. Get it right before you start running you mouth!

Well for a Bledsoe fan, that comment is pretty amazing. At this best, about 10 years ago, he didn't have the numbers of Romo. So if Romo sucks with a 95 rating, what does that say for Bledsoe?

I think Drew Bledsoe is one of the best quarterbacks we will see. He is not only great QB, but also a great example to young athletes...Good Luck Drew---

If you think that, you are the one who is ignorant.
Go to NFL.com and look. Bledsoe never had a season with a 95 rating, not even in his best year. And the more important thing is, Romo did with the same team that Bledsoe was a 59 with. Now lets see ... which is the larger number, 59 or 95? See ... when the 9 comes first, that's better than when it comes last.

Why don't you root for the Bengals? You seem to have the same mentality as most of their players.

In fact, I think it be a great idea if the Bengals hired Bledsoe as their starter. Why don't you suggest it to your home team bro? I'd love to see him in that uniform.(Of course this won't happen. No team in the NFL, not even the Bengals is going to hire Bledsoe as their starter). But he, go for it! I wish you well in your efforts.

Let's get a little more exact. Over the course of Bledsoe's career, he average 231 yards passing per game. His first year playing, this number was 207. Romo's first year was 290 yards passing (plus he actually rushed the ball, something we all know Bledsoe couldn't do). His lost ball percentage (lost fumbles and interceptions) in his first year was 1.58, but was much higher his last year) Romo's was about the same 1.60, which is slightly higher then Bledsoe's first year, but lower than Bledsoe's last year (with the same team as Romo's first).

As already mentioned, Bledsoe never had the QB rating Romo had, in even his best year.

For these and other reason, this why what you say is not right, and what I said is right.

Oh, one more thing Tony from Cincy: let's not forget POINTS. Bledsoe got just slightly over one TD per game his last year. His career? 1.3 average.
Romo? Almost 2. That is a huge statistical difference. But hey, if you want to like Bledsoe, be my guest. But for my money, I'll go with Romo. Now he may not continue to grow, but as has been clearly demonstrated by the numbers I've given you, he is already better than Bledsoe ever was, and he certainly is better now.

Romo has only played 11 nfl games and he's a hall of famer? and from what I remember he didn't play too well towards the end of the season...plus--oh yeah it's so exciting watching him run all over the field being chased by the defense---also Bledsoe never got a chance to redeem himself--he was only 3 and 2 with a 5 point deficit at the half--give me a break

Bledsoe had a season and a half to redeem himself. And as far as Romo and the Pro Bowl, he actually had some of the best numbers any QB ever put up in the Pro Bowl. As far as the end of the season for Romo, a QB does not get judged by one play, especially when the NFL has put in extra slick balls for the kickoffs. He has an excellent record as a ball handler, and he finished the season with a 95 rating. Bledsoe a 59. What about is not understandable?

It really amazes me how people can make these broad statements, but I notice there are no facts presented to back it up. The only numbers being posted serve to prove that anyone who thinks what you think knows nothing about football or math.
