LMFAO!! Good ol' Aaron Brooks. He'd just smile and smile and laugh and laugh. It was actually enraging when he'd throw a pic and walk off the field smiling. He was so talented I remember him throwing the ball BACKWARDS a couple of times. LOL!!!

Don't like Romo or his little smirks on the sidelines on his girlie, teen phone during a game where my Saints are struggling to get their first win of the season.
So basically its entirely off the field, personality dislike stuff?

Don't forget that Payton tried to get him in 2006 before we signed Brees.

Care to guess who's thrown more career picks? Romo or Brees?

Care to guess who's thrown more picks in the last 5 years? Romo or Brees?
But, guess who's going to the Hall and who's not. Let's not compare the two, it's not close.

I'd venture to say that if we'd landed Romo in 2006, he would have won a SB here under Payton's coaching.

I'll gladly compare the two, because it is close. One just plays for a team everyone hates.

This sort of thing is why no one likes him. He rubs people the wrong way.

As for comparisons, Brees has been starting in this league a couple seasons longer than Romo, and Romo has missed a lot of games. He also has a much better offensive line these days than we have. That would be the reason for the INT difference. Romo is good, but not great. There really is no comparison, in my opinion.

But Drew had arguably the top O-line here for the majority of his career. The Dallas O-line was crap until about 2 years ago. And Drew had many more weapons at his disposal than Romo ever did. A young Colston, Jimmy Graham, Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles, Jeremy Shockey, Pierre Thomas, David Thomas, Mark Ingram, Chris Ivory, Deuce McCallister, Devery Henderson, Lance Moore etc...

More or less, though I haven't liked the 'Boys since Jimmy J & Jerrah took over in 1989.

Romo is guilty by association.
