Here’s Amani Toomer saying what most people already know about Tony Romo…

Toomer says Romo is better than Eli Manning

If Miles Austin catches that pass last season these thoughts are agreed with by everyone on the planet Earth.

    Better yet, DC, if the defense could actually make stops in the fourth quarter, they would have beaten the Giants in the first game. Hell, if they would have stopped them on ONE of the final two drives in which the Giants scored, they would have won. It shouldn’t have had to come down to Romo having to make a play to Austin. The defense failed this team more than anything last year, and they ought to be a damn shamed of themselves.

    I’ll tell you what is going to happen to this pass happy league. Defenses are going to shut it down. The more pass plays, the more opportunities for sacks. If you don’t have a running game, you have nothing.

    Football is blocking and tackling, running the ball and stopping the run. It is nothing else, never has been, never will be. These defensive coordinators are smart. It only takes them a couple of reels of game film to figure out how to shut down an offense. Bury the quarterback in the dirt. It’s that simple.

    All of this talk about Eli Manning and Tony Romo, it’s a quarterback’s league! Give me a break. You cannot run a play action pass if you do not have a legitimate running threat. In short yardage or goal line situtations, the passing game won’t do you anything. If you cannot run the ball, you cannot win. Period.

    The Giants got hot last year at just the right time. They won the Super Bowl. Hey, good for them. I notice they run a 4-3 defense. It must get into Tom Brady’s head, since he’s lost to them twice. They kept burying him in the dirt. That’s the future of football.

    The Cowboys are running a weak 3-4. That’s why they haven’t won. I’m surprised that no one else has figured this out yet. The 3-4 is passe. It worked for a while, until offensive coordinators figured out how to beat it.

    That’s the way it goes in the NFL. Offenses, defenses, constantly adjusting. It’s not about the quarterback. It’s about the offensive and defensive lines, running the ball and stopping the run. It will never be about anything else.

    These Cowboys, yes, the have an explosive offense. Do they have a dominant defense? We shall see. We shall see.

    Eli Manning didn’t win the Super Bowl by himself. He won it with a dominant defense and a running game. Tony Romo won’t win without either.

    And for that, I blame Jerry Jones.

      Good post. I agree with much of what you say; however, I don’t agree with your assessment about the defensive schemes. There are still very good 3-4 defensive teams that are Super Bowl caliber. In fact, just two seasons ago, the Packers (a team that runs a 3-4 defense) won the Super Bowl, so it can work. The problem with Dallas is that their front seven is not effective enough. They only have ONE legitimate pass rusher in DeMarcus Ware, and their defensive linemen are average at pressuring the QB. Jason Hatcher is decent, but other than him, their defensive ends don’t scare anyone. Of course, Spencer is a mediocre pass rusher. If you want to run a highly effective 3-4 scheme, you’re going to need at least two above average rushers coming from the edges, and a big Nose Tackle who can absorb double-teams.
