    Fraley: Tony Romo is a good quarterback, but he can learn a lot from how Jon Kitna directs a team

    Gerry Fraley

    SportsDayDFW.com writer Gerry Fraley chatted with fans on Monday and answered questions about the Dallas Cowboys. Here are some highlights:

    Who is holding back the young players? Is it the coaching staff or Jerry Jones ? Seem like we missed out on two years of Miles Austin , Doug Free and Choice. What other players need to see the field?

    This happens in every pro sport. Coaches, whose jobs are always on the line, play veterans because they know what they can do and trust them. It takes a vote of support from the owner for a staff to go with young players. Given Jerry's need to sell merchandise and luxury boxes, I do not see him ever approving a youth movement on this team.

    As stupid as the 'Romo isn't a team leader' argument is, I don't disagree that there are things he'll learn from watching John Kitna these last few weeks. That's one of the real benefits of having such an experienced, quality backup.

    The good thing about a guy like Romo, he really does want to get better, and he really does pay attention to everything. He'll pretty much have to assert himself in the process of taking the team back over now that Kitna's raised the bar for playing with aggression and emotion.

    I'm sure he'll find a way to incorporate something that's consistent with his own personality.

    The argument isn't that Romo isn't a "team leader".
