I have been hearing the crazy talk about trading Romo for Cutler for several weeks now. Unfortunately, the Broncos have now announced that they are looking to trade Cutler so all of the Romo haters are firing up the talk about the trade again. You have got to be kidding me if you honestly believe that there is any chance on God's green earth that this will ever happen. But just to prove my point I decided to look at the stats of each player to show that Romo is the superior player. I took out the statistics accrued in non-starting appearances by Romo so it would be a fair comparison.

There is no reason to downgrade the quarterback position. The stats speak for themselves. Romo is the better quarterback in almost every category. Cutler has yet to lead a team to the playoffs after three seasons while Romo has already accomplished that feat twice in three seasons. And I didn't even go into the fact that the Cowboys cannot afford the cap hit that would occur if the trade were to happen or that Cutler isn't exactly proving to be a great leader with his childish complaints about trade speculation involving him at the start of free agency. I know most intelligent fans aren't proposing this trade but now you have the ammunition to prove that Romo is clearly the superior player when someone brings it up.
