The Truth: Who let who down?

As much as we, as Cowboy fans, hate the Giants... you have to respect that they honestly got hot at the right time. I was having a conversation with another fan, who is anti Romo. This fan stated that Romo stunk it up over the last six games, while Eli, on the other hand, straight up balled.

I decided to do a little research, because I was convinced otherwise. I didn't stop there. I went on to compare the Giants' Defense to the Cowboys' Defense over the last six games, as well as the Giants' RBs to the Cowboys' RBs in that same time frame, and this is what I found...

Even when presented with this evidence, said fan stated that no matter what it was still all of Romo's fault that we missed the playoffs. He also made it a point to let me know that my research, as a whole, was inept because it doesn't show that Eli's TDs came in the 4th Quarter when needed.

That's incorrect. Over the course of the last six games, of which Romo only played five due to a hand injury, Eli Manning had five 4th Quarter TDs. Romo had four.

So. You tell me. Who's to blame?


Just because a QB is playing better than another, doesn't mean he had a better surrounding cast;
Just because a QB doesn't have a better surrounding cast, doesn't mean he isn't playing better than another.
