Look, I do not like the game management of this team! When they start to play fast is when they get down by a couple of scores, then they want to actually play football?!
With this current Cowboy team this year, would RG3 have the Cowboys in a better position than they are in right now?
It was a combination of the Giants and Skins relaxing with a big lead and the Cowboys waking up. It takes a first half beat down to inspire the Cowboys to play that's another reason Garrett needs to go. Put any QB on THIS Cowboy team and the results wouldn't be any different. Garrett would completely screw up RG3. There's a serious coaching issue with the team that's causing repeated penalties especially in the redzone and the lack of focus and enthusiasm that has resulted in painfully slow starts which has led to the Cowboys getting way behind in games. Even a dreadful team like Philly that was playing with a short deck was able to jump out to an 11 point lead last week.
It's getting behind in games that's caused Romo to press trying to bring the team back. The same thing is happening to Brees in NO. The Saints keep getting behind which has caused him to press and it's led to a number of int's. Even though RG3 wouldn't help this current Cowboys team I'm looking at the future and a 22 year old duel threat QB with an incredible skill set is something to build on once you get a competent head coach in place. With a stubborn hands on owner like Jerry a competent head coach may be harder to come by than landing a talent like RG3.
