    Well, not really, but consider the price of the RGII pick, if you were to go up and trade for Lucks pick at #1 it would've probably cost 4 1st rounders and 4 2nd rounders, if not more. With that context I'd say yes.

    You want a player you obviously rate highly to leave the team you support to leave, presumably you are of the opinion that this would not be good for the team, and win elsewhere so you can tell other fans of the team you support that you were right. Strange.

    Ever heard "Once a Marine, always a Marine"?

    These career Dallas Cowboys will always be Dallas Cowboys.

    I wanted Emmitt to do well in Arizona as well.

    I dont want to see Tony without a ring or Jason without a ring....shoot, I am actually happy for Demarcus...he actually has a chance to win. I abhor wasting good Dallas Cowboys player's careers with no chance to win. Sickens me really.

    As has been stated, Romo's cap numbers would prohibit a trade. But since this is hypothetical, yes, I would trade him. Not because I think he's not a good quarterback. I just think his run has ended. I don't see the Cowboys fielding a team that was better than that 2007 team, at least not in the next two years. I think Romo has a good two to three years left before he starts hitting the serious decline.

    One of the things I haven't liked about Jerry Jones is that he's a great businessman but not when he needs to be. Personally, I feel we held on to Aikman for too long, hoping we could win another championship with him when he was clearly in decline. We should have got rid of him via a trade. And by not trading him, it forced us into stupid decisions (the Joey Galloway/James Knight (?) trades, trying to get receivers for Aikman). We held on to Deion too long. We hold on to players too long.

    That's great from a loyalty standpoint. Not so great from a business standpoint.

    Now I hope I'm wrong and Romo leads us to a Super Bowl championship. But I just don't see it based on how this franchise is structured, its football philosophy and the aging/injury of its current superstars, which aren't many.

    Depends who there, if JF ,Teddy and Bortles is gone then yes. They are looking at Garrett Gilbert from smu, another udfa prospect. There are some good qbs in this class to be home in seriously on a projected undrafted talent.

    Not that I'm a fan or anything, but Garrett Gilbert will get drafted for sure, imo.

    Maybe but cbs has the guy listed as drafted. Cbs draft grades are accurate for the most part.

    For the Cowboy's you are absolutely right - the price would be too steep to give up that many draft picks because they are not a QB away from contending. However, if another team like for instance the Texans, Jets, Chiefs, Rams or Vikings or other team where Romo would be an upgrade over what they presently have and they also believe they are strong elsewhere were willing to give up a high 1st round pick where we would be guaranteed to get say Manziel or Bridgewater...granted, the scenario looks like the work of Grimm brothers, but if that type of offer was out there, I would absolutely have to think long and hard about it.
