Well, a few random thoughts as we hit Thursday of "Romo Week". I'm excited, hopeful and somewhat sobered by the past, all at the same time. Excited - We finally have an unknown situation at the QB position, one that spells potential. When you KNOW what you have, and it isn't top quality, it is difficult to get too fired up about that. I don't know what we have yet, but at least the potential of it being good gives me a sense of anticipation for this Sunday night and the rest of the season. Hopeful - To read that Troy Aikman said that Romo might be the answer for the Cowboys for the next 8 years was really surprising and encouraging to me. As I've said all along, all I want is a young QB, of our own, that can give this team stability and quality at the position for a good amount of time in the future. If that turns out to be Tony Romo, I won't care where he played College ball, the fact he wasn't drafted, or any of the other stuff. I will be thrilled. So there is hope. Sobered by reality - I realize at the same time that he could turn out to be anything from a Steve Beuerline type (on the upside) to a Kevin Sweeney (on the downside), and either way he won't be the ultimate answer. There is nothing worse than no hope except having your hopes crushed So, I'm looking forward to this, it ought to be a lot of fun the rest of the way.
