i don't get those that want Romo in our division. If Romo leaves, Dallas is no longer competitive. Period.
Entire Team Let Eli down today - NYG4l
He really had no choice but its not all bad its really 7 years 60 mill and the cowboys can cut him loose in 4 years. Its alot of upfront money no doubt. Romo is smart though had the cowboys screwed regardless. So all in all it will be a long tenure for Romo and company.
Fact is, over the last 5 years (10 games vs Cowboys) Giants are 7-3. And 1 of those 3 losses, in 2010, was vs Kitna as QB.
Romo is 2-6 vs Giants since 2008.
Since Romo became a starter in 2006, he is 5-8 vs Giants, including the more-important-than-all-the-other-games, 2007 playoff game.
We split with the Cowboys 3 of the last 5 years, 2008, 2010 (the year we beat Romo, lost v Kitna), 2012. We swept the other 2 years.
Including the Sept 2012 opener vs Giants, Romo-led Cowboys defeated Giants once since Dec. 2008. Romo beat us once in the last 4 years. Once. The one game you single out as an example of Romo "dominance" vs Giants.
You want to know--aside from his 1-3 post season record--why so many Giants fans are thrilled with Romo being retained by Dallas and remaining in the NFC East?
Where is this fear of facing Romo coming from?

He said he would be willing to talk about a restructure if the team asked. That is NOT giving up money. It's actually getting the money up front in signing bonus. It basically just changes future salary into guaranteed money. It's a win for Eli, just as much as it is for the team.
First, there's a difference between fear of a player and acknowledgement that our opponent would be weaker without him.
Second, if you're using the fact that the Cowboys lost to suggest that Romo hasn't consistently made our defense look silly, then I guess you just DVR and fastforward to the end score to form your opinion. Fact is, he nearly became a hero, rallying his team back against us to punch a ticket to the post season if not for Bryant's pinky.
You can point to his bonehead mistakes and stupid picks - and we should be fortunate he makes them - if he ever got his head out of his backside, it would be a nightmare.
BUT HE IS. And he DOES always make the dumb mistake.
It's fascinating and I wonder if it isn't something of self fulfilling prophecy at this point. He consistently lives right up (or down?) to expectations.
