so many fans down. the hype of a repaired OL and the return of flo not panning out as hoped can be devastating when reality sets in. on paper things looked good, talk out of camp was all positive and glowing, and we brought on the biggest "show" in the NFL, TO. we slapped in a few glowing parts, got the BP seal of approval, and this year was going to be "it". we even got some love from vegas for the superbowl, which only spurs on the optimism. 7 weeks into the season things are not quite what we hoped they would be. the line has shown to be less than effective and our veteran qb who just needed 1 more shot is now shot down and sits on the bench pondering fishing and other endearing things he can do this time next year. unless something radical happens, the change has been made, and the search for a better tomorrow is now underway. amazing what can happen in 7 weeks. at the end of the season 2 seasons ago, we had 3 games in which to get some questions answered. we didn't do that and we let some player sit vs. giving them the experience they must get now and whatever reason keeps you warm at night, that was still a major mistake in our long term health to ignore the future for at most, 3 games in a losing season. amazing what can happen in 2 years. parcells mantra of never wanting to put a young guy into a bad position suddenly didn't matter as romo was thrown into the fire on monday night, while sitting down his longtime friend and player, bledsoe. it was a move that hurt just about everyone close to it but needed to be made. truth be told, it never sound have been a decision to make as we should have found out about our young players sooner. but fans are not a patient people. winning cures all so the quicker we win the faster we can be proud of our team again. in this lack of patience we tend to think we can fix things "that" quickly - 1 player can turn it around. we're not that close, people. romo is going to make mistakes and if you think sitting on the bench for 3+ years was adequate prep time, you were wrong. you learn NFL speed on the field, not on the sidelines. you learn by making mistakes young people make. you've got to step back and give him that time and when he falls, pick him up and put him back out there. there is no "quick fix" in the NFL despite any marketing ploy you've heard in life. parcells tried it while revamping the defense and ignoring the offense and we're paying for that now. the defense is still "gel'ing" and the offense is the red headed step child who's time for love has come. let's give romo the year to see what he can do. he's not likely to make the OL better and he's not likely to bear any other false hopes 1 change will change it all. time will, and better moves than we've made so far. while i hated bill for wasteing those 3 precious games, i applaud him now for making a move that had to hurt. the time *is* now and we are in essence starting over as things come apart at the seems. i do think the next coach will have a stronger core to work with but will also need latitude in his decisions and staff. hopefully this round of changes will take us back to our core where we find a qb we can trust, if not romo then quit dorking around and get the best we can in the next draft, and play him because you should. it will be a rough couple of years coming up as we figure out just who we are, but finally - we're on our way. amazing what 1 change will do.
