QB debate: Breaking down the Romo vs. Eli Manning argument


By Pat Kirwan | NFL.com
Senior Analyst

The Eli Manning vs. Tony Romo debate has been raging over the airwaves this offseason.

The No. 1 debate this spring on my radio show "Moving the Chains" on Sirius NFL Radio has been which QB is better, Tony Romo or Eli Manning?

Cowboys fans contend the argument isn't close, Romo by a landslide. The Giants fans feel the Super Bowl victory ends the debate. Cowboys fans are quick to remind Giants fans that most of the Big Blue faithful were trying to run Eli Manning out of town halfway through the 2007 season. The Giants fans keep asking how can the Cowboys fans be so loyal to a guy who has never won a playoff game? The raging debate has been spirited, to say the least, as fans get emotional. I thought it would be a good time to tag the argument with some facts and figures.

Eli Manning and Tony Romo have both played enough in the past two seasons to compare their production. While Romo has been in the NFL longer, Eli Manning has been on the field longer. Some categories can be compared head-to-head while others will be discussed by percentages. My intent is not to direct you to decide which man is the best player, but to help you decide which guy you like more and at least have some facts to back up the opinion in case you run into a Cowboys/Giants argument over the summer.

Let's start at the top and work backward.

The playoff comparison

Eli Manning is now 4-2 in playoff games, including a victory in Super Bowl XLII. Romo is 0-2 in playoff games. Eli Manning has completed 59.7 percent of his passes; Romo has connected on 53.8 percent. Eli Manning has thrown a touchdown pass 1:20.5 pass attempts, Romo has hit pay dirt 1:32.5 attempts. Manning has been sacked 1:13 attempts in the playoffs; Romo has only gone to the turf 1:17 throws. Eli Manning averages 6.8 yards per pass attempt and 11.5 yards per completion. Romo averages 6.0 yards per attempt and 11.1 per completion. --Advantage: Manning--

Regular season comparison

- Tony Romo -
Att: 520
Comp: 335
Yards: 4,211
TD/INT: 36/19
Rating: 97.4

- Eli Manning -
Att: 529
Comp: 297
Yards: 3,336
TD/INT: 23/20
Rating: 73.9

Over the past two seasons Eli Manning has thrown 1,051 passes to Romo's 857 so there is enough similarity to weigh the results. Eli Manning connected on 57 percent of his passes with 47 touchdown passes and 38 interceptions; he was sacked 52 times. Tony Romo completed 65 percent of his passes with 55 touchdowns and 32 interceptions; he was sacked 45 sacks. --Advantage: Romo--

Division play

There's not a coach alive who doesn't say your team has to be built to win the division. Since Eli Manning took over as the QB, the Giants have gone 14-10 in the division, winning 58.3% of their games. Romo has gone 6-5 in the division, winning 54.5% of their games. Romo is closing in on Eli Manning but the Giants QB has never had a losing division record in four years, while Romo went 1-3 his first year. --Advantage: Manning--

Personal stats (last two seasons)

Eli Manning has connected on 69 passes over 20 yards. Romo has done it 73 times in 194 less attempts. As for 300-yard passing games, Eli Manning has just six in his career and three over the past two years, recording a 2-1 record in those games. Romo has hit the 300 mark 10 times in the past two seasons and boasts a 9-1 record in those games. --Advantage: Romo--


So after this breakdown it is a split decision, but if you like playoff football and division play Eli Manning is the winner. If you like regular season and personal achievements then Romo is the winner.

Tune into my radio show this week and weigh in with your opinion. Maybe a non-Cowboys or Giants fan can bring their opinion to the most heated debate this spring.

Eli fu*ked up because his teamates were no where to be found in the season. Weve seen that happen to Romo and how bad he plays as well. "Redskins vs Cowboys game". Eli has graduated in the playoffs with a good team. Tho he might never put up those reg season stats like Romo does they will be much closer this year and Eli will mos def pass that n*gga.

I obviously think it's too early to tell, but do people think Romo will end up being in the same boat as Marino? "...all stats and no ring".

Romo is no where near a Marino not even close no comparison.................

I think in this league it comes down to who can stay in the pocket and complete passes with defensive pressure......

I think Eli is a better pocket passer than romo so i would go with him

Try paying attention @sshole...I said "the same boat as Marino"...keywords: SAME BOAT. No one's comparing Romo to Dan Marino as QB's, otherwise I would've made a Romo vs. Marino thread instead.:rolleyes::slap:

Eli of course RIGHT NOW...

But Romo will be better in the future...

Plus, I'm not too sure Eli doesn't have some kind of mental disability...

I take it you put Ben and Eli over Romo because of their playoff history, but Rivers? Negroe please.

Funny thing is that Romo is a botched snap from winning a game, he is the one who led us down field on that pass to Witten to even attempt a game winning FG.... Dallas were underdogs in that game

I think its funny to call someone whos started 1 1/2 years a choke artist.... Ill take the QB who put up a better season then Tom Brady ever did pre-Moss, its a combination of things that made us lose to the Giants (offensive line play a big one and a bullsh*t call where they said Ware was offsides when he wasnt, that play that they called offsides on was a 3rd down, instead the drive continued and Toomer caught that long a.ss pass for a TD next play for their 1st score... game is alot different if the Refs dont fu*k that up)


No need to justify the Seattle game, we had a chance to win a game that we werent supposed to win, Im not really mad
