I did not flat out call you myopic. I said that in my opinion, your reasoning is myopic.

Your view is myopic in my opinion because you discount Ryan and Romo solely because they haven't won as many playoff games. You fail to consider everything else that goes into winning a playoff game which is out of the quarterback's control. Teams win without good quarterback play, and a quarterback can play a great game and still lose. So wins and losses aren't the end all be all you propose. The Steelers don't win solely because of Ben, and the Cowboys don't lose solely because of Romo. So, it's illogical to assume Ben is better than Romo solely because Ben's team has won play off games.
What is your measure - which QB you would date if you were a woman?

Walk me through your metrics for the superiority of Romo or Ryan

Ben's team has carried him through at least 3 playoff wins, a benefit few quarterbacks have received. If winning Super Bowls was based solely on quarterback play, Ben would certainly have no more than one SB, and maybe not any.

An no, I don't agree Romo is a big-game choker. He's played 4 play-off games and choked in one of them, unless you're going to blame him for his first play-off loss against Seattle when he bobbled the ball as a place holder. (I don't blame him. That was just poor coaching. There's a reason starting quarterbacks don't serve as place-holders. He should have never even been in on that play. He put his team in position to win as quarterback, perhaps choked as the place-holder. Maybe they needed a new place holder....)

If I were a woman, I would probably go out with Romo over Ryan. Romo has a rugged Favre-esk 5-day beard, but a boyish charm. Ryan looks like a giraffe.

What about you?

He blew the Giants game in 2007, and he blew the Vikings game a few years ago. He's also lost several late-season win-and-you're-in games, as I recall. I despise the Cowboys though, and so I honestly haven't paid that much attention to them. I'm giddy as a schoolgirl whenever Jerry Jones spends tons of money on a player only to have them not pan out.

He did blow the Giants game. The Vikings game was a team effort. It was pretty much a blow-out from the beginning - not really a choke.

He's won a few of them as well.

no, that's what John Goodman yells when a guy from the other team goes over the line. then he pulls out a gun and tells him he's entering a world of pain.

A world of pain.
