DALLAS COWBOYS' JASON WITTEN HINTS ELI MANNING IS A BETTER QB THAN TONY ROMO (http://www.giants101.com/2012/07/15/dallas-cowboys-jason-witten-hints-that-eli-manning-is-a-better-qb-than-tony-romo/)

Toomer</a> calling Dallas (http://www.giants101.com/tag/dallas/) Cowboys' Tony Romo (http://www.giants101.com/tag/tony-romo/)
the premiere quarterback in the NFC East (http://www.giants101.com/2012/07/05/retired-new-york-giants-wr-amani-toomer-tony-romo-a-better-quarterback-than-eli-manning/), tight end <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Jason Witten" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/jason-witten/" rel="tag nofollow">Jason
Witten</a> was quick to accept the compliment on behalf of his teammate, but
stopped short of agreeing with the retired wide receiver. Although he
acknowledged his belief that Romo is an elite athlete, he wouldn't go as far as
to say he's more talented or valuable than Eli Manning.



</p>

<blockquote>


"I think he's an elite league quarterback," Witten said of Romo (http://espn.go.com/blog/dallas/cowboys/post/_/id/4693885/jason-witten-responds-to-amani-toomer-comments). "Many people have said that. I think
that's great that Amani said that, but at the end of the day, Eli is a Super
Bowl champ. He's won two out of the last five years. They're doing a lot of good
things right up there. They're the poster boys of how you do it and not let
adversity get in the way because of where they're at."</p></blockquote>


It's an interesting stance for Witten to take, but being complimentary of Big
Blue is nothing new for him. Back in early April, he praised both Martellus Bennet and tight end coach Mike Pope (http://www.giants101.com/2012/04/04/dallas-cowboys-jason-witten-believes-martellus-bennett-is-perfect-match-for-new-york-giants-offense/),
saying he expects big things from his former teammate in 2012.</p>


More to the point, the support for Toomer's argument has been greatly
lacking. Even Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in late January that the biggest difference between the two teams is Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/2012/01/24/jerry-jones-difference-between-dallas-cowboys-new-york-giants-is-eli-manning/). Needless to
say, the endorsements for Romo, either before or after Toomer's comments, have
not been ringing.</p>


In seven years in the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/), Romo has one playoff win, while Manning has earned
himself two Super Bowl MVP awards. If you want to win football (http://www.giants101.com/tag/football/)
games, you take Easy-E. If you want to win your fantasy league, you take
Romo."</p>

Witten is a smart enough man not to not provide BB material for us. And maybe he even bELIeves it.

Very good read as always Roanoke.

Witten did himself a lot of good in making a statement on a topic anyone/everyone would have thought he should have steered clear of commenting on; It was very tactfully said.

i really don't have too much hate towards the cowboys... probably because we've been beating them more often than not lately... i really hate the eagles and all their players. i feel bad for romo because he gets way too much hate... especially considering wasn't he undrafted?

Yes, he was undrafted. He didn't get to play for quite a while, too. I think he first got on the field during a game vs the Giants. Kiwi picked him off, if I recall correctly.

What Romo's been able to do in his poorly-run team is nothing to sniff at.

Witten said what Toomer should have said. I guess Witten isn't trying to jump start his broadcasting career by making ridiculous comments about a former teammate.

Well said Witten!

He'd be good at it!

Witten has always held Romo accountable. After all, he's one of his only Peers on the team.

Can't say I disagree with what Witten hinted at. Eli is the better QB than Romo until Romo can prove otherwise.

Jesus, what's with all the bizarro world crap going on this offseason? We have established former giants jumping ship left and right for guys like Romo or Flacco, and Eli is now getting more support from the freaking Cowboys? My head is spinning too much...

Just how many "established former giants" are "jumping ship left and right for guys like Tony Romo and Flacco"?

There are defintely more talented/physically gifted players on the team than Witten, however he's probably the most Savvy/ intelligent, clever... etc.

Still that's an interesting take. I think Ware takes the cake easily-- Witten 2nd.

Well everyone knows about Amani's shenanigans nowadays. But Phil freaking Simms recently went on record saying Flacco was "not just good, but awesome". I have no problem with calling Flacco good, but awesome? Give me a freaking break.

Simms did not even mention Eli in his comments about Flacco.</P>

This thing with Eli is kinda like the Madden curse.

Maybe you don't even believe in curses but considering the trends why tempt fate?

The trend here is that on two occassions the media gassed up and tried to mock Eli Manning and two times Eli promptly brought a ring back.

If I played for another team I'd keep Eli's name out of my mouth.

What has that got to do with ELi or what Simms may think of ELi?

Phil Simms is entitled to his opinion. I'm going to guess he's watched Flacco play more than any of us have.

So we have Amani Toomer comparing Romo to Eli and who else is comparing Eli to another QB lately?

this last line in Roanokes thread says it for me :

"In seven years in the NFL, Romo has one playoff win, while Manning has earned himself two Super Bowl MVP awards. If you want to win football games, you take Easy-E. If you want to win your fantasy league, you take Romo."
