No, romo just was an overhyped qb because he played for the cowboys. He was good, not great like Wentz.

Tony Romo was Danny White in the 2000s and 2010s, change my mind.

Is it just me, or is Wentz becoming the new Tony Romo. 
 

Great QB, that just has the absolute worst luck with injuries. 
Poor guy. 

 

That wasn't "bad luck", it was a deliberately dirty play from a guy who shouldn't be allowed to suit up this week.

Romo was actually a pretty good (to great at times, arguably) quarterback, but he also had a lot of moments where he made some REALLY stupid decisions in the clutch (fumbling the snap on the game tying extra point vs Seattle in the playoffs comes to mind. I also remember a pretty back breaking late interception in the final game vs Washington to knock them out of the playoffs in 2012/2103). He wasn’t legendary like he was made out to be by the media/Cowboys fans, but he also wasn’t an absolute dog (like I admittedly made him out to be many times). He was a step or two above a game manger, and had a pretty high “Football IQ”, for the most part, which isn’t really an insult. That’s a pretty solid career for most quarterbacks. 

 

Wentz, on the other hand, is WAY more naturally gifted. He’s been unlucky and has a pretty bad injury history, no doubt. But if you asked me who I’d pick to start a franchise with, I’d take Wentz 10 times out of 10. But it’s probably closer than some people would think.

I liked the Patriots when I was a kid because their logo was a costumed guy playing the sport and I've always loved mascots playing their team's sport. 

 

Also the stadium was hilarious. It always looked like they assembled it every August and took it down every January.

That that franchise took over as the Evil NFL Empire from the Steelers and Cowboys is like if the Sacramento Kings all of sudden reeled off like 7 championships. 

 

 

I liked the Pat Patriot era they looked so cool in the uniforms.  When Bill Parcells came around that team was enjoyable too in the beginning with the new flying elvis at the time.  After that I began hating them.

And I still think the Rams made a mistake in passing on him.

Where's that one guy who tells us the Rams currently have the greatest quarterback in history?

Jadeveon Clowney won’t be fined for his it on Carson Wentz, but Cody Ford was fined $28,000 for this blindside block @15:44 of this video. It’s outrageous.

The NFL is trash.

Read Kevin Seifert's ESPN story from Thursday.  It is damning.  It supports a lot of what Michael Lombardi has been harping on most of the season: Al Riveron is ineffective, but his boss, NFL's Chief Football Administrative Officer Dawn Aponte allowed all of this stuff to occur and has failed to improve it.

 

Excerpts:

Quote

"It's pretty simple," said ESPN officiating analyst John Parry, who retired last spring after 19 seasons as an NFL official. "The league needs to commit resources and money to this. It needs to commit to the resurrection of the officiating department, the staff, the training and the recruiting. There has to be a commitment of people and money to improve it at every level."

snip

Quote

Al Riveron is completing his third season as the league's senior vice president of officiating and, similar to a coach or general manager of a disappointing team, has been subject to rumors about his future. According to sources, some in the league office have advocated a campaign to lure back Riveron's predecessor, Dean Blandino, who works as a Fox Sports officiating analyst as well as a consultant to the NCAA and the XFL.

The current expectation is that Riveron will have a place in the NFL next season but amid a restructured leadership team around and likely above him. The league has already committed to hiring a vice president of training and recruitment, as part of a new collective bargaining agreement it reached with the NFL Referees Association (NFLRA) last fall, and has focused on referee Walt Anderson as a top candidate for that role if he decides to leave the field after this season.

That would give the NFL three executive-level officiating jobs, which also includes the vice president of replay role held by Russell Yurk. There have been discussions about other positions as well, but the primary decision Vincent and commissioner Roger Goodell must make is whether -- and whom -- to add above Riveron in the organizational chart.

NFL chief football administrative officer Dawn Aponte, a longtime league and team executive with the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins who returned to the league office in 2017, has been involved in some supervisory duties within the officiating department. She could be a central part of any reorganization. Blandino, meanwhile, is an independent contractor for the XFL and thus isn't barred from outside work. But he was heavily involved in the XFL's public rollout of its rulebook this week and said, "It's exciting for me to be able to work with the XFL."

The Kicker...(bolded by me)

Quote

The NFL's new CBA with the NFLRA offered extra severance in 2020 for any official with at least 20 years of experience. A handful of officials have taken that option and plan to retire after the season. As many as 20 would be eligible for the same benefit after the 2020 season if they notify the NFL by this March. As a result, the NFL is bracing for approximately 20% of its officiating staff to depart over the next 14 months.

Vikings are one of those teams I legitimately feel bad for.

 

Unlike the Browns where their management & coaching is just inept, The Vikings actually have a good team & decent coach. They just always crumble when the pressure is put on them.

They also had Korey Stringer die on their watch, traded Randy Moss, drafted Toby Gerhart during Adrian Peterson's prime and traded for Hershel Walker.

 

I don't feel bad for any major North American sports franchise.  Make better choices than Les Steckel, Mike Tice and Leslie Frazier as your Head Coach.
