Dallas Cowboys

A Simple Humpday Question: Romo or Ryan?

One is 24; the other 29.

One is completing 64 percent of his passes with 9 touchdowns and 4 interceptions; the other 58 percent with a ratio of 6-to-4. One has a rating of 95; the other 86.

One hails from a major college and is known as calm and cool in the pocket, wise beyond his years; the other an underdog free agent known as one of the most creative ad-libbers in football.

One is No. 11 in this week's NFL Quarterback Rankings; the other No. 12.

One has led his team to a 4-1 record entering Sunday's game at Cowboys Stadium; the other has led his to 3-2.

Neither has won a playoff game.

One is Atlanta Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan; the other Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo.

So I ask you virtual NFL general manager ...

Me? I'd take Romo in Sunday's matchup, but Ryan for long haul.

For you, simply, which one?
