Not to mention my grandmother could have shredded that defense last season. And she's been dead for 15 years!!!
But as I said....it's mostly a joke.

I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.
I just don't think he's worth that much. I understood that they had to extend him..but $55 million? Sheesh
is he good? well, yes.
am I worried he remained in the Division? No. Our 2ndary and Defense as a whole has been suspect the last two seasons, hence my "disciplined, fast and athletic" comments.
Does our Team beat themselves in some games? Hell yes.
Does our Team sometimes get the doors blown off them? Yes.
Is Romo god? **** no.
Like others have said, his record against us is what it is. Period. You can't argue against truth and stats.
For me, in our Division, it's RG3 that gives me nightmares...maybe he's the real reason why Osi was ready to leave?
As for other nightmares: Desean, Witten, Moss and for the moment Alfred freakin' Morris top off my top 5 hated NFCE personel.
By "hated" I mean totally f'n respect because they bring their A game against us just about every time and they are damn effective. (RG3 and Morris tentative at this time but based on what we saw last season, I shudder).

We are 6-2 vs Cowboys when Romo is playing, the last 5 seasons.
You seem to believe the number of yards Romo passes for vs Giants is far more important than the final score. I don't. (In 2011 the Packers and the Patriots were 31st and 32nd in the league in most yards allowed; yet the Packers went 15-1 and the Patriots made it to the Super Bowl. Ask them which is more important--yards allowed or points allowed, points scored, and wins).
And, fact is, Romo "nearly" becoming a "hero" is not even close to the same thing as actually being a hero.
The point about Romo's career--all 7 seasons--that is worthy of criticism is that his "bonehead mistakes and stupid picks" are what Romo is. They are not just an occasional factor that can be forgiven because he offsets them on other critical occasions.
If, after 7 seasons, he has not gotten "his head out of his backside", as you yourself put it, what makes you think he will the next 6 years?
Again, you seem to only remember this last season in evaluating Romo's performances vs Giants, when Romo threw for a lot of yards vs Giants. He did do that.
But even so, he won only 1 of those games. And while you put so much on the issue of Bryant missing the winning TD the second game by "a pinkie", fact is, after 59+ minutes Romo and his team was --with all his "shredding" of our defense--losing the game.
Your claim is that Giants would "be better off not facing" Romo twice a year. I--and others on this thread, apparently--reject that notion.
You have no idea Cowboys would automatically be "weaker" without Romo. No idea. Meanwhile, Romo is the devil we know, and we know we have a far better than 50-50 (more like 75%, actually) chance of defeating Cowboys with Romo at the helm. HAIL ROMO!!
It is not just this past season - since he's been the starter Romo has consistently performed well against us even in losing efforts. This is, of course, a TEAM game. The fact that we HAVE beaten the Cowboys with Romo doesn't equate to that the Cowboys wouldn't be even less competitive with a rookie QB or some journymen at the helm.
I have "No idea" that the Giants would automatically be weaker without Eli Manning. No idea. But I'm sure Cowboys fans would be willing to role those dice. (Que your response about the difference in record which completely misses the point about the difficulty in finding a QB)
I try not to not to fall into the easy trap of being rude on a message broad, but "reject" the notion all you want, I think anyone who thinks the Cowboys would be better for us with Romo than without is being deliberately thick or belligerent and overly dismissive of a rival.
EDIT: Regardless of his unfathomably consistent stupidity in the biggest games, he's good enough to keep the Cowboys competitive enough to keep having big games to blow. Jones being able to find another QB to lead a team despite the idiocy that surrounds them at every level at the drop of a hat seems like a strange stance.

In my personal opinion, it doesn't matter how good of a regular season quarterback he is. It doesn't matter how many 4th quarter comebacks he has. It doesn't matter how many records he breaks, it doesn't matter he's better statistically than Eli. He is an accident waiting to happen, and he will almost always find a way to screw everything up. That is why people are more than happy to have him stay in the division. Him being an accident waiting to happen negates the fact that he is competitive, you're just going to throw an interception with 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter with the NFC East Championship on the line anyway.
That is the sad thing about Tony Romo.
