Arguing or lamenting about it is a waste of time and energy. The real issue is how this team can help this guy get to the next level.
I feel that with the emergence of Dez Bryant that the WR corp is going to be a strength next year. As long as Witten is around the TE position is set. RB needs to be addressed because I don't trust Murray to stay healthy.
The main issue though is the OL. The whole unit needs to be evaluated and changes need to be made. Free needs to be gone and the interior needs to be upgraded. Tyron might not be the answer at left tackle, either. I say move him to right tackle, look for a replacement and uprade the entire interior line through the draft if possible.

Most importantly is the need for an experienced signal caller on offense. Mike Shannahan schooled Jason Garrett yesterday with a rookie quarterback because of his ability to be creative, something Jason Garrett isn't capable of being. He doesn't stick with what works and is too stubborn to adjust his offense based on the strength's and weaknesses of the players at his disposal. Tony Romo needs to moved around more. More bootlegs, slants and screens were needed yesterday to counter the Redskins all out blitz strategy.
This team is entirely capable of winning with Tony Romo and will need to because he isn't going anywhere.
I agree that Tony Romo should be extended because he has what it takes and through what he's going through right now, I feel as if he has what it takes to lead this team all the way with the right coaching which I heard on NFL.com that the Cowboys are now in search of an offensive cordinator, which I believe should be Norv Turner, or a coach that is good with Quarterbacks and is seasoned with calling a balanced unpredictable play calling system that could help Garrett as a head coach.
To be honest I want to keep this team together and let them gel. Even though I live in DC and have to hear them talk it's really disappointing but I know if our team can stay healthy we can beat anybody in the NFL and also start and finish games. Not just begin to start just to try to attempt to finish or sometimes finish, just win.
