For the last few years I have often wondered how and why the Cowboy organization has seemed to just accept average performance. We have not made the playoffs in three years, or record since the late 90's is about .500 and we have a fan base that has resorted to defense of one guy or the other on these boards. What happened to this organization over the years? Folks, we have seen the 49's, Redskins and other teams rebound from below .500 records to make it back to the tournament. In other words, these teams have completed the rebuilding process and we , during this same period, seem to be stuck in neutral. I don't know about you but I'm not happy with this team since the 90's. I have sometimes hoped for a complete collapse of a season because it may be the only thing that humbles Jerry to his senses about moving to the backstage and getting a FULL-TIME GM in here.
As for Romo, it is now clear to any honest observer that he really struggles with big time moments and his decisions are really very similar to his idol, Bret Favre; who was a big time gambler and risk taker. However, Romo has not had the luck of Mr. Favre. In big moments, I'm always wondering when Romo is going to blow it. I have that feeling because of what he has done over the years. I don't want to and can't defend the reality of the situation with our QB; his history and reputation is of his own making. Only he can change it but until he does he will be judged as a guy who is an above average QB but struggles under pressure and if pressured will sometime take that risky bet that us fans have become all too familiar with.
I mean come on guys; we have not won anything since the mid 90's. If I was Jerry Jones, I would be frustrated too. I tell you one thing, Red will not survive another non-playoff appearance next year with his job intact. I love this team but I'm just tired over losing and not getting close to 'the show' anymore. Man, those 90's were an Awesome time; I should have enjoyed them more
