He's still trying to figure it out using this method.
Have not decided. Rotations start at the end of July. Will make a decision by then. Leaning smart phone.

I made a thread for you on the other site Wolf. Did you see it yet?
I have both, definitely get a smart phone. My tablet is useful, but I don't use it nearly as much as my phone.

Way too go, you've got them all in an upheaval!
I did. I noticed you left Mr. Romo out of the question. Probably because they all would have laughed at you.
Probably because he wasn't part of our discussion on the matter.
Explain, as he was rather central to the discussion in the "Happy Bday Romo" thread.
Either way, good to see ya back over there. post more
Not likely and no you said specifically Favre was up there with Montana and Marino. You never mentioned Romo in that talk.
He is when you discuss the all time greats. Although I would put those 3 as Montana on top, then probably Favre and then Marino. But there were many other greats spread in there as well, they are not my top 3 all time, just a few names off the top of my head.
The point was, he was an elite QB, Romo is not close, and at the current pace will never be considered as such.
Funny how a Super Bowl changes things. If Favre never wins a Super Bowl he is Romo essentially.
Except without all the records, wins, playoff wins, MVP trophies, and wide acceptance as one of the all time greats.
Otherwise yeah, very similar.

And I must say this isn't a "bash Romo" thing. You were the one who originally tried to compare him to the great Brett Favre. And that is just asinine. This is a "bash a ridiculous opinion" thing.
No wrong don't be putting words in my mouth. It was a Romo thread in which I said Romo won a Super Bowl. And you seemed to think even then he was no where near Favre. Frankly you are putting too much love in Favre. The whole qb thing is getting old anyways. It's pretty lame trying to compare so and so to whoever. And the whole who is a elite qb thing. Whatever let's see it on the field.
You first said:
"hen/if Romo wins a Super Bowl Wolf you wouldn't put him up there with Favre who only won one? And that team was damn loaded, greatest defensive end ever on it. Freeman, Beebe, Keith Jackson, Edgar Bennet, Eugene Robinson, LeRoy Butler."
And followed up with
"It really is funny, most of you think Favre is one of the greatest ever and he couldn't win it all without a completely loaded team. And everyone kills Romo here for not winning anything with a crappy defense, bad offensive line, and a running back who is always hurt."
You cannot minimize Brett Favre's achievements on the field and his status among the all time greats in an attempt to make Romo look good. You look like a fool when you do such things. This isn't about me being a Favre-Packer homer and you being a Romo homer. I'd say the same thing if you tried to tear down Marino's accomplishments, even though he never won a Super Bowl.
And no, Superbowl titles don't mean everything. That's why I said Romo could win 3 of them and he still wouldn't be considered an all time great unless he vastly elevates his level of play.
He's not terrible, but he's not great, either. He's certainly no Favre, Marino, Montana, Kelly, Young, Brady, etc.

Yeah, this is true, I rarely use my iPad, mostly when my computer and phone are about to die, or I feel the need of using a bigger screen for temple run
I heard that. Sad day. That scene is on youtube and saved to my favorites.
Get something like the Note2 Wolfman...I've got it and love it. Can't go wrong. Best of both worlds.
