Ranting Romo: Cowboys Fans That Want A New Signal Caller Need To Form Better Arguments

Ever get into an argument about your favorite team and feel like your spinning wheels in Alabama mud, like Joe Pesci in My Cousin Vinny?

I took to the airwaves last week to go on a bit of a rant against the anti-Romo crowd that seem to make arguments that crumble under scrutiny; yet persist year-in and year-out. It's a frustrating exercise for those that support Romo as the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. While there are certainly arguments to be made on either side of the fence for believing in or wanting to move on from Romo; they at least need to make some sense when broken down.

Have a listen to the most recent edition of the Cowboys Crunchtime Podcast.

Also included in this week's edition is an introduction to the advanced stats that you should be familiar with as an NFL fan. Often times, the stats that we are spoonfed by announcers and newspapers (they still exist, trust me) are pure volume stats, which don't take into account the opponent or the game situation. If you want a true representation of which players and teams are doing the best jobs given the circumstances, efficiency stats may be what you need to look at.

Learn where to find them and what to do with the newfound knowledge as I'm joined by BTB's resident stat guru, One.Cool.Customer.

Take some time out from your Mundane Monday and enjoy some good ol' fashioned Cowboys and NFL discussion.
