    The Cowboys are 3-4 and quarterback Tony Romo leads the league with 13 interceptions.

    So naturally, they want to keep him forever.

    According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, team vice president Stephen Jones has begum preliminary talks on an extension that would keep him in Dallas until he retires. Romo’s under contract through the end of the 2013 season.

    “We still feel that way,” Jones said. “We’ve got a lot of confidence in Tony. Tony has a lot of confidence in himself. He is going to be fine. He is not the problem.”

    Not extending Romo would be one of the stupidest things any team has ever done.

    I've got some things to say about Stephen Jones, but I'll wait until after the Atlanta game. I think # 28 will "talk" first and do it in that game.

    Stephen Jones sure sounds delusional. The Cowboys are a weekly train wreck waiting to happen, and the coddling of Tony Romo is embarrassing.

    Here is a hint:

    I've seen years of horrible snaps sailing past Romo's hands, him having to physically walk a WR to where he should be lined up, countless false starts and delay of game calls, and frustration over coaches not getting the play in on time. He's done a remarkable job with what he's had, and perhaps he has taken a step back this year. But I would still bet on him trying to compete, and I think he has several good years left in him. He and Witten will set a lot of records in Dallas before its done... Winning a ring of course would be better.

    Gruden loves Romo. I can't believe people want Romo gone. Amazing. He's the only chance we have. Only.

    If anything Romo should want to leave. The dude is getting killed, on the field AND in the media.

    "He is not the problem"

    Read that again haters. Yes he messes up but he's carrying the whole offense on his back

    If I were Romo I'd tell the team to build me an offensive line before you talk to me about an extension.

    exactly. as i said in one of my videos, tony romo is the best quarterback this team has had since troy aikman, and that's saying a lot on my part.

    How do you know?

    I tend to think Romo has a number of good years left in him, however, at age 32 no one can guarantee is hasn't started the slow and inevitable slide that happens to all QBs in their 30s at some point.

    Dallas extended a player with blown out achilles heel. They are not seen as competent by most around NFL. Signing Romo just further solidifies Jerry place as being incapable of building championship teams. Its just locks this group into more mediocre seasons and more head-scratching plays at worst moment for Romo.

    Everybody needs to just chill, considering that will only be like 2015.

    It's amazing how quickly everyone has forgotten the Quincy/Hutch/Vinny/Deadslow days.

    They've forgotten last season. And have their eyes mostly closed this season.
