We're going to get at least two comp picks, those arnt official yet but we are projected to get two 6th rd selections.Trading Rush to replace our missing mid round picks would work for me. 4th, 5th, and 6th have all been traded away.
Next years draft is going to be a real short draft without our mid round picks
I'm not a stats guy. Stats are BS! I look at what the guy did on the field, how he did it, and the help he had to accomplish it.I mean, he ranks 9th in NFL history (since stats became officials) in NFL sacks.
He did shit most guys don't do. He was a sensational player with no weaknesses.
Romo is nowhere near the 9th best QB in league history.
I doubt any GM would look at Romo and Ware in their primes and pick Romo over Ware.I'm not a stats guy. Stats are BS! I look at what the guy did on the field, how he did it, and the help he had to accomplish it.
Ware's DL mates, LBs and secondary were better than what Romo had helping him on offense.
We tend to possibly think that guys like Montrae Holland weren't all that bad. Oh, yes they were. I remember reading about how Cincy fans laughed at signing Livings. He was a backup, not a starter.
Romo had one of the quickest releases of any generation. He got the ball out very fast and that is the only reason guys like Bernadeau, Livings, Young, and Holland even looked like starting caliber NFL players. On any playoff team, these guys would have been backups.
It is just a damn shame that by the time the OL finally got to a point that was Super Bowl worthy, Romo's health suffered. But that happened because of Jerry Jones, who didn't invest in the OL soon enough.
Even Jones has basically admitted that he wasted Romo's prime. A QB must have protection. That's even more important than who the receivers are. WIth enough time, a receiver will be open.
In a 10 year career, if your GM wastes 4 of them, you've got a problem.
Remember when Romo had something like 20 seconds of time against the Texans? That's an extreme example, but the point is when a QB has time he has options and the INTs go dramatically down.
Granted, Romo had good receivers (although I think Williams and Dez were overrated). But passing requires protection. Without time routes down field can't develop, etc. So everything needs to become condensed, which means more INTs.
Even with guys like Escobar, Olgetree, Crayton, Livings, etc Romo somehow managed to keep the team competitive and the offense was always at least good.
There's a reason why Romo came on like gangbusters when guys like Marc Colombo, Gurode were his blockers and then tapered when the OL was second rate. He picked it up again when Murray became the RB and the OL significantly improved.
Barber was good, but he constantly looked to hit someone. Julius Jones was a flash in the pan, as was Felix.
In short, Ware had more help on his side of the ball than Romo did. Even just someone like Anthony Spencer helped ease the pressure off Ware. The QB is at the mercy of his blocking and receivers. And I don't care what anyone says, Dez Bryant was if not stupid then stubborn!
Ware was a great player, but he wasn't better than Romo when context, job roles, are considered..
Ware wasn't asked to win the game. He rarely made the Arnold Donald/Micah Parsons game-changing sack. Ware got a lot of sacks, but how many closed the game out? He did have a few, but not enough in my opinion over the course of his Cowboys career.
His Super Bowl ring came when he played second fiddle to Von Miller. Basically, when he took on Anthony Spencer's role.
Am I supposed to believe that Dan Bailey was a better player than Tony Romo because at one time he ranked first all-time?
Let's put Dan Bailey in the ROH before Romo too then.
Okay, rant over!
