A petty, bitter, possibly not worth your time Romo vs. Rodgers thread

It's come to this. After listening to talking heads on sports media including, but not limited to BSPN, go on and on about how great Aaron Rodgers is, I have to let off some steam, because it seems like no one notices that he's not God incarnate. I mean, don't get me wrong; Aaron Rodgers is a good quarterback. Any team should be glad to have him as their QB. Really what gets me, as an openly biased Cowboys fan, is the way he's constantly regarded higher than Tony Romo. Personally, I'd say they're about even. In fact (and this isn't really Rodgers' fault), Romo's never led a 6-win team. I'm just sayin'...

Take this clown on CBS (Dave Richard). He's a fantasy-ranker guy who names Aaron Rodgers the number 1 quarterback to draft and puts Romo at 6. He puts Matt Schaub ahead of Romo, which is ridiculous, but I digress. But really, Aaron Rodgers over Drew Brees/Peyton Manning/Tom Brady? Please. I think people need to tap the breaks on this guy.

Statistics? Here are some very basic stats from the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

 

2008 (TD-INT-QBRat)

  • Aaron Rodgers: 28-13-93.8 (Playoff Wins: Zero)
  • Tony Romo: 26-14-91.4 (Playoff Wins: Zero)

2009 (TD-INT-QBRat)

  • Aaron Rodgers: 30-7-103.2 (Playoff Wins: Zero)
  • Tony Romo: 26-9-97.6 (Playoff Wins: One)

As you can see, Aaron Rodgers has indeed been the statistically-superior quarterback over Tony Romo. But not by a whole lot. Romo leads Rodgers one-nil in playoff victories.

Does it really matter? No. But I'm mainly curious if there's anyone who feels like I do.

Moral of the story: Aaron Rodgers isn't all that unless Tony Romo also is.

I'm very happy with Tony Romo as the quarterback of our team and would gladly and confidently pick him over Aaron Rodgers in any situation.

GO COWBOYS 2010!
