But, Jerry has not made a real attempt to draft a qualified QB in over 23 years. Of course you're not going to find a QB if you don't try. Picking up trash off the street, drafting 4th rounders in the 2nd round, trying to find baseball players to play football is just bad business.
And as far as your "real QB" comment, in my opinion, we've not had a real QB since Aikman. To me, a real QB is someone who can lead their team, excuses and all, to the playoffs, win, and put themselves in position to win Super Bowls.

But until I finally put a nail in my own clove coffin, I will believe that this franchise has wasted 7 years, and will ultimately waste a decade on a fraud QB.
Nothing anyone on this board, stats, opinions, or a gun to my head, can convince me that Romo is the QB to lead this team to a Super Bowl. And having said all of that, maybe I just won't respond to anymore Romo threads, I will try my best not to, but in case I can't help my self, it's been fun.
Subconsciously people want to believe their favorite team has a Quarterback that can lead their team to the Sb. The mentality of-" Aw well another 8-8 season, No big deal at least we still have a franchise QB. If we get this and that, and fix this and that, and do this and that, we'll be a ok." It's denial and a lack of accountability.
I truely believe with every fiber in my body that Tony Romo cannot lead this team to a Sb. He can put up good stretches of games and might get us to the play-offs. But in order for this team to win anything in the post-season Romo needs a team that is stacked around him. A team that can bail him out if he gets in a funk.
My buddy said it best about Romo- He expects Romo to choke, while I hope he doesn't.
I don't care either if this offends anyone, it's how I feel and I won't go walking on egg shells so people don't get their feelings hurt. As of respect to the new rules however this will be the last time I mention anything about Romo until we start getting into the off-season.
