But like Bennett....many "FANS" did not like the guy so they were for some reason HAPPY when he left.If my memory serves me correctly Choice couldn't get on the field much because he didn't practice well and Jason Garrett wasn't his biggest fan. He'll be 29 years old this fall and I don't really see any scenario in which he would be back on this team. I'd rather spend money on someone younger who can hold onto a football.
Don't doubt it. But that wasn't the question asked. You wanted to know what WE thought about Romo's contract situation, and what it sounds like is you didn't like our answer. If you get that upset over contrary answers, then don't ask questions.
Axe ur exactly right. I didn't. But im not "REALLY" upset....I just find myself a bit taken aback by the fact that is seems many here dont understand just how good Romo is.
I think the evidence of what he should get based on history and tradition as they relate to performance is clear. I tried to explain this in my posts, but I dont think I really go thru.
The article attached I think shows this best:
]What Cowboy fans would be advocating in getting rid of Romo would be to BLOW A HOLE in our TEAM with about 6 million hitting the cap and NO QB for a guy who had proven by the numbers his value.
Again, he only needs a better supporting cast.
So YES....after I asked I did issue an edict.
ROMO STAYS.....WE PAY HIM.
And the CHARTED Numbers come out just about where I've said. They used Romo's .14 EPA in 2012, but I'm sure Romo's Agent will argue his avg performance ( with a better supporting cast ) was a full .05 higher just a year earlier at .19. I think this will easily be good for the additional 1.1 million annually I suggested vs the 13.3 a .14 would generate based on tradition.
A .21 would generate a 16 million dollar Contract or 5 years 80 million dollars......based on that formula.
I think the 5 year 72.5 considering the 17 million in cap hit Romo has over the head of the team now gives him leverage.
Sonny, I just don't understand these guys! Most are saying that Romo must go because he cannot win in the playoffs or "must-win" games. So what they are saying is that QB's that won the Superbowl are better than QB's that didn't because they overcame their teams' deficiencies.Nobody is saying this. Some of us would just like to simply let Romo play out his contract and move forward at the QB position. Myself and others feel we can only get so far with Romo and he will never overcome his inconsistency issues. Nobody is asking Romo to be perfect every game and we all realize that QB's have poor games throughout the course of the season.
By that logic, Mark Rypien, Doug Williams, and Jim McMahon were all better QB's than Dan Marino! Ridiculous!!!
Will Tony Romo make our team competitive and give us a chance to at least make the playoffs going into the final week of the season? Absolutely. Will we ever be a significant threat to make a run in the playoffs with him? My answer is no and because of that, I'd rather move on and try something different. He seems like a great person and he has the ability to play like a top 5 QB at times, but it's his inconsistency big situations that is ultimately his tragic flaw. I'll continue to root for the team regardless of who our QB is, but at this point I think moving in a different direction would be benifical going forwardI'm sure there were many many many Broncos fans who felt the same way about John Elway... Bottom line, there is NEVER a legitimate argument to get rid of a Top 10 QB in this league, when they are so damned hard to come by! CowboysForever, I get the point you're TRYING to make, but that's a pretty illogical viewpoint in this league. Teams miss on QB talent far more times than they succeed. Romo withouth question has the talent as a QB, and is competitive enough to get it right if or when he's ever surrounded by the right pieces. Getting rid of him over a few select frustrating moments is flat out ridiculous!
A few frustrating moments? It's been seven seasons of frustrating moments which include medicore to poor performances against each of our three division rivals in a win and make the playoffs game in the final week of the season. We've had the same situation in week 17 three different times and we've failed three each times. I cannot say that Tony Romo played well in any of those losses.Yes, a few frustrating moments!!! When you look at his total body of work, his great moments FAR OUTWEIGH his bad moments! Unfortunately he plays for the most popular team IN SPORTS, and therefore his bad moments are magnified beyond reason! His mistakes are no more obvious than Big Ben (22 QB rating in the SB), P. Manning (pick six in SB), Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers etc... Those guys were fortunate enough to ride the wave while having legitimate teams around them that could compensate and overcome their mistakes throughout the season and the playoffs, and win a Super Bowl!
CarolinaBBQ ur exactly Right.
As I've said, these arguments are silly to me.
YOU said it best......QB is a STRENGTH of our team....NOT! a weakness. When you go CHANGING STRENGTHS to get "UNKNOWNS", while limiting your opportunities to then "FIX" your "WEAKNESSES" you are setting your team up for the cellar.
