Excerpt: "</font></font>In the bye week before the biggest game of his life, Tony Romo (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Tony+Romo) took off for a
mini-vacation to Cabo with then-girlfriend Jessica Simpson (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Jessica+Simpson),
sparking a controversy about his commitment to football.<div>


A few months after the Giants beat Romo and the Cowboys in that 2007 NFC
divisional playoff game and went on to win the Super Bowl, <a title="Eli Manning" href="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Eli+Manning">Eli
Manning</a> was in Cabo at a more appropriate time. He got married.</p>


In big moments, Manning’s timing has always been better than Romo’s.</p>


The Giants and Cowboys have stumbled their way through the first 12 games of
the season and are left with little margin for error over the last four weeks in
which they will play each other twice .</p>


The Cowboys (7-5) have a one-game lead in the NFC East over the Giants, who
have lost four games in a row. In one of the biggest regular-season games in
this long Giants-Cowboys rivalry, the Giants clearly have the edge at
quarterback.</p>


Manning has given the Giants reason to trust him in a big game. Romo has yet
to play his best when the games mean the most. He can either be incredibly
creative or when he makes a mistake, it looks like he just drew the play up in
the dirt and let it fly.</p>


Manning is 4-3 in the playoffs and has been the Super Bowl MVP. Romo is 1-3
and has never advanced past the divisional round.</p>


In the first playoff game of his career in 2006, Romo fumbled the snap as the
holder on a 20-yard field goal attempt with just over one minute remaining.
Dallas lost by one point.</p>


Manning has been one of the best quarterbacks in the league this season and
it often seems he’s about all the Giants have going for them. Romo’s two
turnovers in the fourth quarter lost the season opener against the Jets, and his
three second-half interceptions against the Lions — two of them returned for
touchdowns, the other setting up the game-winning touchdown — w ere the reason
the Cowboys blew a 27-3 third quarter lead in the fourth game of the year.</p>


“Everybody last week was talking about Aaron Rodgers (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Aaron+Rodgers) being
the Super Bowl MVP and all that stuff,” Giants tackle David Diehl (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/David+Diehl) said
Wednesday. “He’s a great quarterback and he’s having an unbelievable year. But
we have the same thing on our side. Eli is having an unbelievable
year.” Read more...</p><div>

You know, articles like this worry me. I worry because of the "second half collapse" issues we've been dealing with, both real and imagined. Is it possible an article like this is intended to make us look past the Cowboys as an easy game?

I don't think Romo is close to Eli in terms of ability, but neither do I think he's cannon fodder. We had better be prepared to face the best Romo has to offer or run the risk of hearing that flushing sound as our season heads down the toilet.

It could be Alfred E. Newman, it's the mental toughness issue we need to be concerned about. if the team that played last Sunday shows up in Dallas, we win. If the team that played the Saints shows up, we are in big trouble.

No ledge involved, it's a real concern however.

No offense, but against the Giants, there's no such thing as a Cannon Fodder quarterback and if I was the coaching staff, I would remind the Giants D, that they made Matt Moore and Charlie "Freaking" Whitehurst look like probowl quarterbacks.

Have watched a couple of the Cowboys games, it has happened before and will happen again, Romo starts throwing to his favorite target, the TE in the 4th quarter and somehow he will be left uncovered.</P>


With what I have seen from Fewell this past month Eli better be prepared to put up another 35 points.</P>

I expect a high scoring game, because we can't cover Witten....
