I'm not even referencing the QB controversy when I say that, it's just that your quote is so damn true and can be applied to so many things in life.
And yes, it does apply to Romo's play as well, but I don't want to get into all that and do something to drag out an already worn out thread.
2013 DCC Fantasy Football Champeen
My issue is with the assumption that he would be, the lack of recognition that when this season is over Dak will have put together the most awesome rookie campaign in decades. The lack of recognition that Romo would have to return to 2014 form to be better than Dak, and I could make the argument that 2016 Prescott gives you a better chance to win than 2014 Romo.
It's not an assumption on my part, it's a belief.
The truth is, it as much as anything comes down to matchups. If we play TB/Atlanta/Detroit/GB I have very little concern.
But I do worry if we catch NYG/Seattle and what those defenses can throw at a QB.
I agree we are witnessing perhaps the best rookie QB campaign since maybe Marino.
It's important to know that the "pro-Romo" group is more of a "pro-explosive play" and "pro-experience" group.
Dak's been fantastic and as unfair as it is to ask, we need him to be even better now heading into the playoffs.
Dak's destroyed what Russell Wilson and Ben Roethlisberger did as rookies. Sure Ben's Steelers won more games, but they won more than one in spite of Ben and his rookie limitations. We are winning because of Zeke, the OL, and Dak.
But we are asking Dak to continue to buck history, because it took Ben, Russell, Marino, and Brady till their second seasons to reach the Superbowl.
Now we are labeling fans? Get out of here with that mess.
My issue is that I'm concerned in a Romo that can't make those throws anymore. Romo has a mind that's as sharp as any QB in football, but when he sees the throws he can make but doesn't have the capability anymore, he's a liability. Which is what happened against the Redskins in 2012, the Bears in 2013, the 49ers and Philly (the first meeting) in 2014, and the Panthers in 2015.
If Romo's arm strength has wained, and after a 36th birthday, and yet another back injury it's not a crazy leap to assume that it has, he can see the hole in the defense but he may not be able to get the ball there.
If Dak was playing like 2015 Brock Osweiler, I would be on the side of experience.
