    You just got paid $108 million dollars. It's fair for Jones to want this.

    Doesn't this mean Romo will be calling the plays instead of Garrett? Isn't that what Manning does?

    Whateva and to damn bad! That's what winners do at the QB position. I love Romo as our QB and I definitely believe in him but he's got to put in all the time needed and then some to get the job done. JJ is absolutely correct, get it done Romo.

    It would have come off a lot better had Jerry said all the things you just said. Since Jerry has proven he is still micromanaging the team, I wonder how involved he is in the offensive gameplan. Probably a lot given he wants to go to the "12" offense, and drafted accordingly.

    So Romo fires back in the media tmrw and says, "We better get the best free agent rt avail or I'll be spending most of my time in rehab."

    Idiot....;)

    If the "Organization" felt that way, then the "Organization" is completely DUMB for paying him that kind of money.


    If they're giving big sums of money to players they don't feel are committed to winning, then THAT is the bigger issue.

    Oh I agree with you, but he's signed now and they were kinda over a self imposed barrell to do it.

    Yeah but they have Orton on the roster. If after all this time they don't think Romo is committed, they need to go another direction, not pay him 108 million dollars.

    Better to go with the backup then to pay insane amounts of money to someone you don't believe is committed to winning.


    That said, I don't think they feel that way about Romo. I just think Jerrah worded it wrong, and really shouldn't have "worded" it any way at all to the media, cuz BY NOW he should know that the media is going to spin the hell out of a comment like that, and only something negative will come out of it.


    Jerry just need to stop talking.

    I noticed that too.

    Actually wondered why it was left out as I knew I recalled reading that in the paper today.


    Romo is a football junkie and he spends a ton of time already at VR and studying at home. He makes his year around home in Dallas....unlike many QBs.
    This is bigger picture stuff.

    Excellent idea!! He's seasoned and mature enough to handle it. He knows what he sees out there and he always moves the offense well when we're in the hurry up/2min O. Love for Romo to take over more. Good move!

    In other words, if I'm going to pay a QB who can't win anything other than a November super bowl, then your butt better be on these grounds working your tail off, so that when these big games come up, you have enough under your belt, and under your helmet to push through.

    Simple as that. The only time I will give Jerry credit, so soak it up old man.

    Nice! I love this...

    Hell, Romo might have a better feel for the plays than Jason does. If this is true, this is great news.

    I know Jerry is a dumb GM, but he loves his money. If if he's going to pay you, you better produce something. He's spoiled this kid over the years. And now he's given this dude a star tackle, another addition to the line, a star receiver (Dez) great running back when healthy (Murray) more linemen (Fredrickson or whatever his name is) HOF tight end (Witten) plus another solid tight end (Hannah) plus another TE (Escobar) not to mention a possible ALL-STAR receiving core, I swear, what else does this dude need?

    What do you suppose Jerry will say after Tony's first multiple int game? I don't think he'll spare Garrett or Romo this year. We better go 16-0;)

    I first read about this on the Dallas Cowboys Official Website. In that article there are other details included that were left out of the ESPN version. When I read it, all I got from it was that the Cowboys realized they would be better off with Tony more involved in the game-planning than typical quarterbacks are. They wanted more input from him than most quarterbacks are allowed to give, but in order to get that input, they knew it would require more hours per day invested on his part to do his regular quarterbacking duties plus add the extra game-planning sessions. They basically asked him if he was willing to put in that extra time, in exchange for this huge contract. According to the article, Tony agreed, provided they also do something to improve his protection. I thought that was fascinating. Anyway, I saw this as nothing but the organization expressing complete confidence in Romo and wanting him more involved, not "questioning his commitment." I don't know how to post links on here, but here is the url.
