The Cowboys received 8 draft picks and 5 veteran players for Walker. Romo, Ware, Witten and Dez are the teams corp players and without them the Cowboys are probably a 3-4 win team at best. The picks they would get for them would be used to try and replace them it would make no sense. The Cowboys would probably end up having to use multiple picks just trying to replace Romo.
If you're referring to the OL don't know why you got abused for saying it would be a problem in 2012 most on the board figured it would be. A lot of fans wanted the Cowboys to use their #1 on the OL.
Dude, that's the whole point of rebuilding. I never said the players we would draft would come in and win a super bowl that year. Withing 3-5 years I believe we would be in good position with a bunch of young talent mainly from the many picks we get. 1 playoff win since 96... remember that. Romo has all the stats and none of the wins. I was romo's biggest supporter 'till last week, that was the straw. I'm actually playing Flacco and Big Ben in both of my fantasy leagues over Romo.
