    Last off season, one of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ proclamations was that he wantedquarterback Tony Romo to take on a Peyton Manning-esque approach to his job.

    Romo appears to be going that route on one front. Romo and Cowboys coach Jason Garrett were decked out in Duke gear and in the stands for Duke’s basketball game against North Carolina on Saturday and Jeff Gravley of WRAL reports that they have been workingwith Duke football coach David Cutcliffe. Cutcliffe was Manning’s offensive coordinator at the University of Tennessee and has remained a frequent collaborator with the Broncos quarterback.

    One of the times Manning and Cutcliffe worked together was in the wake of Manning’s neck surgery and Romo is taking a page from that book as he makes his way back from back surgery. Romo told ESPN during the game that his recovery was going well and that he expects to be on the field for OTAs.

    If I could have anybody as a QB coach, Cutcliffe would be at the top of the list.

    In LOSING games, Romo had an astounding 17 TD passes and an outer worldly small number, 3ints. Yet you harp on ints.

    Try..ever in NFL history..EVER...to find a better ratio than than that for a team that went 8-8.
    I'm well aware that Romo is far from perfect, but some of you haters are are flat out embarrassing with your lack of big picture football knowledge.

    At New York for the game winning drive? Meaningless?
    At Washington with the season on the line..meaningless?
    Go take the short bus home

    Not worried about Romo. Continue the rebuild up front, replace Austin. The offense should be playoff worthy.

    I thought that was an interesting stat, 14-7 when winning, and 17-3 when losing.

    Agree with the caveat I'd like to see Austin's contract renegotiated. IF healthy he is still a potent weapon. This offense would be more dangerous with a healthy Austin and an improved Harris and Williams. Having said that I'd be surprised if we didn't draft a WR in the talent rich WR environment. Look for one in the 1-3 probably 2 or 3. Of course that depends on who else is available. They will be looking at OL, DL, LB, S and CB but won't hesitate to take a WR if he's the BPA.
