True but there's 2 ways to look at this. You could say Eli overcame what should have been a game ending INT AND HIS DEFENSE to make a comeback. That further illustrates the point of what it means to be a winning QB. You have to make the plays or it doesn't happen.

He didn't make his usually soul crushing mistake but he also didn't make the necessary play in the clutch...

The losses suck... no argument there.

Oh Garrett fucked up against Zona.. Personally that the biggest fuck up this season. That's just retarted.. but the losses go like this..

Romo (NYJ,DET,NE 1/2)
Garrett (NE 1/2, ARZ)

There's plenty of blame to go around but I'm not looking @ Romo from last night or just this season. I'm looking at his entire tenure.
