Prime winning for a quarterback is after he has gained 2-3 years of experience and before he hits 32, 33. After that the odds start to pile up against him. Sure a handful of guys might have some big success after this window.
You want to give Romo the biggest contract in the NFL when he's 33? The odds are that such a contract would be a huge debacle...especially when we are not a team that has a good cap situation.
So are you arguing that you can't win with a QB over 33 or that you can't win a championship? Because Kurt Warner was over 33 when he took the Caridnals too the Super Bowl. His team simply wasn't good enough to beat the Steelers.
You can come up with any argument you want but my stats show that the best team in the NFL wins the Super Bowl. Ravens were the best team in the NFL last year. Whether this team fails or not won't be because of Romo. It will be because we simply weren't good enough to win. Romo could be 23 years old and if this team didn't play better on both sides of the ball they would still not win a championship and probably still be 8-8.
