Seriously, this game is so much like Arizona-Chicago.

Except this time the losing team scored zero offensive TDs.

It was like a deja vu, except with no emotional attachment whatsoever. :) Seriously, though... Grossman with that line and with that WR and TE talent... I bet he could put up 300 and 5 interceptions, with 1 lost fumble every week! :)

one really bad game and everybody is throwing him under the bus, wow...

Take a look at some of the QB's he's been compared to:

Brett Favre (10/30/05) 26 for 39, 279 yrds, 5 INT, 1 TD
Troy Aikman (2000) 22 for 42, 211 yrds, 5 INT, 1 TD

anybody can have a bad game...

oh, and the difference is that Romo is the only QB that won the game after the 5 INT's.

romo is really a lot like favre.....runs around, tries to make plays, messes up a lot of things but can still pull off the win.

john madden is going to have a new man-crush once favre retires.

Crappy games happen but it takes some skill to be able to step out there after you have thrown 5 ints and fumbled once, then get your team in position to score a winning FG after everything you can possibly think of goes wrong, and BOOM!

That is something all of the qb's listed above have in common. Resilience.

LOL! That's exactly the kind of BS reasoning Bears fans tried to convince themselves of with Rex. Romo's obviously a better QB than Grossman, but 6 turnovers by Romo is not the kind of thing you wash away with "resilience."

well romo did good for the first four games, this was probably just an off day (ok, fine, a very bad day :-] )

you can't really compare him to grossman because "good-rex" just means that no one happened to pick off his crazy i'm-going-to-throw-it-in-the-middle-of-traffic-and-hope-someone-catches-it passes

Actually, you can. Look at Rex last year at this time.

Romo IS better, and this was the extreme of his poor performance... but this is IMO more proof that he's got a long way to go. I only got to watch the 2nd half, and there were at least 2 other passes that hit defenders, with no chance of making it to their intended targets... it was a SICK bad game.

I do think he'll bounce back. But I'm not gonna "crown their arse." That was TERRIBLE.

Yeah, but he still took me to 5-0 when he hit Crayton with 20 seconds left. I have Romo, Crayton and Witten and was down 35 going into MNF and won.
In another league game the guy with Barber went ahead by one point on that last drive. Too bad the other guy had Folk.
