I respectfully disagree. Romo led us to a 13-3 record and would have won MVP that year if it wasn't for Brady (srs). You have to look at him relative to the other QBs in the NFL, he was the 2nd best QB in the league that year. Also, like I said led us to a 13-3 record with our passing game being the ball clubs biggest strength. He carried us.
Also -- sorry I really labeled the topic wrong. Ofc Garrett hasn't "ruined" Romo. For one to be ruined, one must be .. destroyed. Obviously Romo isn't destroyed. I guess how I should have worded it was, "Is JG limiting Romo's potential? And will he never get there, because of JG." That is kind of what my feeling is. Regardless of the OL, I am the first one to say how horrible it is and that might not be all on JG (maybe it is). But, I feel like our play calling is so bland and he doesn't maximize any of the talent we have on offense. He runs our offense like we have Alex Smith as our QB with a bunch of scrub receivers. At least this is how I feel. Sorry to anyone that is offended by my opinion and thinks I'm overreacting. I've been a die hard fan of this team my entire life, and since Aikman we finally have talent at the QB position and it really really burns me inside to think how despite this talent we are still going to be an average ball club. Hope this explains my harsh feelings towards Garrett. I look at other offenses and coaches make their QBs look way better than they really are, I feel like its the other way around with us and Romo. If it wasn't for marketing and Cowboys being the publicity machine that is, I feel like Romo would jet out of here so fast once his contract ran up. He is underrated, underappreciated, and flamed despite being a rock for us. It is really sad and I feel for him.
Just think about this - Romo's win loss with JG as HC 10-9, Romo's win loss with BP / WP as HC, 39-22.. and as we all know, QBs are judged by wins and losses. I know 19 games might not be the biggest sample size, and I hope this season it gets a lot better under Garrett. But if we miss the playoffs this year, might it be time to move on from Garrett? I still wish we got Jeff Fisher from Tennessee.
