For the 2012 Season:

59% 7.2YPA 201YPG 12 TD 10 INT 0 TD 4 FUM 4 FL
58% 6.9YPA 240YPG 11 TD 09 INT 1 TD 10 FUM 5 FL
68% 7.3YPA 244YPG 15 TD 12 INT 0 TD 6 FUM 3 FL
61% 7.3YPA 264YPG 12 TD 11 INT 0 TD 4 FUM 1 FL
67% 7.6YPA 289YPG 12 TD 13 INT 1 TD 4 FUM 2 FL


All 5 were considered "good" to "very good" QB's who have typically put up good to elite stats. All are having terrible seasons, several on pace for their worst season of their career. I personally find it to be extremely surprising that half of many peoples top 10 would be performing at such a low level.

Rivers and Vick were already on the decline as of last year.
Cutler was never really considered better than slightly above-average.
Eli has never been a great regular season QB and is in the middle of his annual midseason slump.
Romo has always flirted with being crappy. This year he decided to dive in headfirst.

Romo is not in decline and he has consistently been a top 10 QB. I hate to break it to Cowboys fans, but the problem is NOT Tony Romo. It is your horribly overrated WRs, your terrible offensive line, your non-existent running game, your patsy of a head coach, and your terrible owner and general manager. Your team -- your organization -- is not good. Start dealing with it now.

QBs do not consistently put up 25+ to 30+ TDs a season while secretly being terrible unless they're playing with Randy Moss (Culpepper) or Calvin Johnson (Stafford).

I agree that Dez Bryant is horribly overrated, and the Cowboys organization is a mess, but Romo deserves a lot of the blame for his own failures this year.

It's starting to trouble me that I find myself agreeing with you so often. Stop it.

So say he was a Bears fan... So he can't have an opinion on a QB that is better then his teams QB without u bringing it up? Maybe ask why he feels Eli sucks instead of taking a pot shot at the team you thought he was a fan of.
