    Finally, I agree with those who say Romo retires. He's at a point where he makes almost as much money for not playing as for playing. He has a wife who has to be tired of seeing him writhing on the ground with broken collar bone and back issues that are structural, not just muscular.

    His competitive nature and desire to have one more good year to go out as starter
    Versus
    Leaving family and relocating to a new city for a very short time
    Learning a new system, new teammates, new coaches
    Going to an inferior OL when he couldn't stay healthy behind the best OL in football
    Going to a team with an inferior running game and possibly receivers
    Risking what has been seen again and again...taking that risk and not even winning the starting job or losing it after a rash of turnovers while adjusting to everything and everyone new, possibly even being injured or released.
    Ending his career like Emmitt and other stars, accomplishing little in exchange for a brief time in the wrong uniform.

    If Tony carefully weighs how this can turn out, I think he will realize the odds are against his dream comeback. I'll be shocked if he doesn't accept this and retire.

    :clap:The best analysis of the Romo situation in this thread, particularly point No. 1
    Do you hear what all the ex-players/commentators say about Romo? The league does not hold him in as high regard as Cowboys fans do. You can call them haters all you want, perception is reality.
    Second, this notion that Jerry is trying to talk up Romo's trade value - as Michael Irvin suggests - is asinine, as if coaches and GMs don't already know Romo's status. :rolleyes:
    No one is going to get hoodwinked by the Cowboys. Everyone knows who Romo is and what you'really getting you acquire him. If a GM gives two No.1 picks for Romo, Jerry should be immediately enshrined in the Hall of Fame - without a vote - as the best GM in the history of the game, and the GM who made such a trade should be run out of the league wearing tar and feathers.

    Leverage is everything. As a player his value is much higher than speculation. But any interested parties have to weigh his cost against the chance that Dallas will release him before the season. Tough to gauge.

    Never said 2 #1's. I'm saying I wouldn't be surprised with a 2 to a desperate team. Bradford has been traded 3 times for crying out loud and isn't better than Romo at 36.

    So much bad info as usual

    Romo is due 14m next year but none of it is guaranteed....the new team would have his rights for 3 years and 54m........again, 0m is guaranteed......Romo would gladly trade some base salary in return for more guaranteed money......it is very team friendly for a starting QB

    Teams will be fighting over Romo......that doesn't get you a 4th....it gets you at least a 1st........GMs need to win now,not in 5 years

    DAL saves the same amount if they cut him, trade him or he retires....DAL has all the leverage....they won't use it but they have it.......3 years under contract means Romo can't just retire to get his way....if he retires that is it he plays for no one but DAL

    Romos situation is different because Jerry will accomodate him. They aren't just going to sell to the highest bidder because Romo won't just go to any team. I expect the compensation to be low.

    You can say the Cowboys have the leverage but Jerry thinks of him like a son he will help him go whereever he wants. If it's Denver Elway is a smart GM he won't give up a ton due to Romos injury history.

    Romo has 3 years left on his 6/108m extension......if he retires he would owe the team a 50% rebate on his 25m signing bonus...doubtful JJones plays that hard but it is his choice, not Tony's

    Fair enough on the first part. He might not be better, but he is younger. Again, never underestimate age. That's a factor in Bradford's favor not Romo's.

    I predict Romo to Arizona. Carson Palmer is shot. He won't make it another year. Romo may not either, but if he could stay healthy, he would be just what the doctor ordered for the Cards.

    That dog just won't hunt... Jerry didn't go after a certain DL in Chicago and he didn't go after a backup QB who matriculated to Buffalo. Jerry will let Romo do what
    Romo wants to do. Romo was Jerry's magnificent wildcat "bonanza" and he's not going to risk the relationship down the line.

    That is why the smartest play of all is to maneuver the cap to allow Romo to be kept and sit back and wait for a desperate team to come calling. If nothing ever materializes then come June 1st, you have a decision to make. Right now, Jerry should be hinting that Romo is under contract and despite what anyone wants to say or think, there is a good chance he is a Cowboy next year. You can't maximize value for anything if people know you are desperate to sell.

    Agree. I will be hoping for a first and will be very patient and wait for it. If I don't get it, than a second would suffice but nothing lower. We don't get it than keep him. Just my opinion.

    After my knee jerk reaction and thinking it thru, I don't think it will happen but hoping it does. Maybe it's the holidays affecting my brain.
