Ok, Im sick of the media and fans saying that Tony melts down in December. I think its a team effort and its more than just the QB. To prove this I decided to research the QB ratings of all the QBs that have played with us in December back to 2000. Here are my findings.

2000

Troy Aikman

54.6

79.9

Anthony Wright

45.7

104.2

48.6

0.0

2001

Quincy Carter

100.5

41.9

58.0

118.9

2002

Chad Hutchinson

26.9

39.7

59.0

76.2

2003

Quincy Carter

49.5

69.4

112.1

2005

Drew Bledsoe

2006

Tony Romo

34.9

2008

Now, how can so many QBs fail in December. Are they really failing their team, or is their team failing them?

Whoever said it was just Romo? It apparently is the entire cowgirls team that sucks in December?

Who says its just Romo? Lets see, ESPN, NFL Network, and plenty of stupid fans that dont know any better.

Last December Dallas lost to the Baltimore Ravens after the defense allowed back to back 1 play 1 TD run drives. What did Romo do in that game? He led the Cowboys to back to back TD drives that put them back in the game. His defense let him down.

The game against the Eagles, in which we lost 44-6, the offensive line was no where to be found. Our RBs and Romo were running for their lives all day.

The Pittsburgh game came down to a few bad plays, but basically bad luck. Had Tra Battle not been in the wrong place at the wrong time we win that game. On a punt Battle just happen to be right where the ball came down. It hit him on the back and the Steelers recovered. After that Romo threw an INT on an out route in which Witten slipped. Witten himself took full blame for that. Also, on Romo's first INT its very evident that TO stopped his route short.

So, has Romo made some bad play in December? Yes. Is he the lone reason that Dallas has failed in December? No.
