    Missing the playoffs the last 4 of 5 years. So what's worse, 5 of 5? Big deal really. If you aren't in the playoffs, you are in the same boat as the bottom feeders, except not as good a draft pick.

    Because it would be dumb. We have a QB that is light years ahead of him.

    You said if we dump Romo you wouldn't watch. Seems to me you're more of a Romo fan than a Cowboys fan.

    Not that simple. If it were, every team would be doing it. And let's not annoint guys like Dalton and Kaepernick before they actually do anything.

    Oh, just ask the ( in no particular order ):

    Vikings
    Bears
    49ers
    Cardinals
    Seahawks
    Bills
    Jets
    Dolphins
    Titans
    Jaguars
    Browns
    Raiders
    Chiefs

    The last time ANY of those teams had a franchise QB was Steve Young with the 49ers.

    14 years ago.

    What he said..

    and I'll venture that I was a Kapernick fan long before anyone in here ( check my posts about him in here ). He's still a project with a lot of potential, but still a project. Dalton is progressing very nicely but, ironically, has the same problems as Romo. Wilson, to me, looks like a fad QB.

    Not saying he's elite at all. Ya'll are quick to just dump someone without thinking about the possible trouble that comes after. Groom a QB while Romo is still at the helm. If the Cowboys did what ya'll wanted and just dumped Romo everyone would go nuts and blame the front office for releasing Romo w/o having another option!

    if Romo is making the same mistakes, then its not all on him, it's also coaching.

    Because he's not alone there. Here we were, week 17, and Romo is *STILL* telling guys were to line up. Romo is *STILL* telling WRs how they ran the wrong routes.

    How does getting rid of Romo gaurantee you anything other then going 5-11 next year? What stops the Cowboys from drafting a young QB to groom while Romo is still here? Now if your take is the we wont develop a QB with Romo around, then the problem is not Romo, its jerry and Garrett.

    Romo is NOT the problem in Dallas, that is a fact. Even if Romo took us down for the score and make the playoffs, we lose the next week. Why? Because our team is a joke from the coach, to the line, to the defense. Its that simple. NO QB will ever take us anywhere in Dallas until we get a real Oline and real defense and a real coach. Sadly, that will take so long that Romo will be done by then. So there in lies the possible reason to trade him now. But good luck convincing Jerry of that. At least he is smart enough to realize that any real hope of winning a SB lies in Tony Romo taking us there.

    The simple truth is that Romo's career, although never to be confused with the elite QB's of the NFL has been wasted on bad coaching, bad Oline play, poor defense, and a bad GM.

    Until those other factors change, dont count on Romo, Orton, or some rookie 18th pick QB coming in here and doing anything. The ONLY reason this team sniffed the playoffs this year or any other year of late is because Romo has gotten us there. Despite the other sad facets of this team. Those are the facts.

    Just look around at the playoffs teams. Can you name me one QB that has made it with less around him then Romo?

    Is there a worse Oline, coach, running game, defense left in the playoffs? Romo has done more with less than anyone in the league you could argue.

    Draft a tyler wilson or a Landry Jones, and let him sit behind orton for a year. There are a lot worse qbs out there than Kyle Orton.

    Not that I want Romo gone this year but this is a good plan if you part ways.
