There has to be plans in place before we take such actions. So i ask again, we get rid of Romo and hand the reins to who?
We have a vet QB who has started for other teams in the league with game experience.
Give him the chance next year. If that doesn't work, then we lose games and get the higher draft pick for 2014. Play Orton, let Romo backup and see what happens.
But whatever we do, do not sign Romo to an even more expensive contract that will cripple the teams ability to improve and more forward as it desperately needs money to do this.
Let Romo stay but ONLY as a reserve guy. Nobody is going to pay him to bring his flawed game to their franchise. I think the Cowboys just need to make the hard decision and bite the bullet on Romo.
I like the guy..don't get me wrong. But he just isn't good enough to build your future around. Hopefully we can all see the reality of that. Remember, there are 52 other players on the team as well as coaches and family that have to deal with all these good/bad decisions.
Take straw votes, Jerry. Ask some people who are directly affected by what is going on and then decide. I'm pretty sure, must would prefer to go in new directions than the one we are trying to save from near-death.
Cowboy fans have a stiff drink tonight and let's celebrate 2013.
Happy New Year to everybody.
