besides the obvious blunder, did romo help or hinder BIG D this year?

Bledsoe looks like the next Warner. Just stands back there almost anticipating getting sacked. It's a move they had to make. At least Romo won't digress like Bledsoe has been.

Incidentally, after watching the Kansas City game, Trent Green looks like he's got the same sack-phobia. There were several instances where he just curled up in the fetal position and didn't even try to get rid of the ball.

I really don't think they make the playoffs without a QB change, so in that sense, Romo clearly helped them.

It was a very shitty mistake he made with the field goal, but he'll recover.

Yeah, as Ditka said, he's the only reason they're there in the first place.

Without question, Romo helped them even make the playoffs. If Bledsoe would've played the whole year, they surely wouldn't have made it.

helped them make the playoffs, kept them from winning the division, obviously botched a potential playoff victory. (Seattle still would have had time, so victory wasn't 100 percent certain like some are making it out to be.)

But, you gotta be in it to win it. With Bledsoe, they don't make anything. But this team was built to "win now" and they might regress again because you can be sure parcells or owens is out of there. And that defense certainly wasn't all its cracked up to be down the stretch.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

I thought if Romo didn't hesitate after the blotched field goal, he could have a better chance of making it to the Endzone..

Perhaps, but romo was downright bad down the stretch and turned it over too, to the tune of what? 8 in 4 games? That's too much, and basically submarines your chances of winning. He had two sub-60 passer ratings in two of the losses, and while he had a "good passer rating" in week 17, he put the ball on the ground 4 times, losing two of them. That's not good.

I think he will be a goo dngfl qb, and he clearly got them into the playoffs. But he also lost the playoffs and the divsion for them.

How did he lose the division for Dallas? Is he supposed to score over 33 poins a game that his defense was allowing down the stretch? I blame December on the defense. As for last night, let's not forget why Dallas was even in that position in the first place. If we are going to blame somebody for the playoff game, blame the man who turned it over to lead to 8 points for Seattle :-t
