    Agree. The Frederick pick will directly relate to more continuity in the middle of that offensive line which should translate to less knee jerk INTs by Romo.

    HE DID.

    “In our negotiations, (Romo) was inordinately interested in what we were going to be doing in the offensive line,” Jones said. “It meant something to him, to make commitments that he was making, that we commit there. It meant something to him and to me that he commit to what I’m talking about doing, more time that he commits to doing more time. It’s part of his job description.”

    Players off normal Tuesdays. Romo will meet with coaches. Cowboys view similar to Peyton, Brady, Aikman in terms QB taking more ownership

    This whole thing is about game planning.

    Mickey talked about this Friday during the draft.

    Romo has only been given the opportunity to ad insight into the gameplan at the end if the week, romo wanted to be involved in the actual game planning and having say n what would work and what wouldn't. Garrett told Mickey he has never given bad advice on what would work.

    Romo also has told the organization he wants to be an offensive coordinator when his career is over.

    Foolish Jerry has to go and try and relay these simple terms to the media and he gives it to them this way because he does nothing but confuse everyone when he speaks. He makes everything worse.

    This is actually a positive thing, leave I to Jerry to over talk it and turn it into yet another reason for people to pile on the guy without merit.

    Source says Tony Romo will be have influence in game plans, personnel and play-calling. He will game plan with coaches Mondays and Tuesdays

    Being more involved in game plan is something Romo has been wanting but allowed only to a point until now

    It's called a JOB. Some of us have one and some of us wish we had one. But even if you aren't making several million a year you just need to comply and shut up or risk losing your job. Putting the "work in" wins championships and if Romo is truly about winning a championship he will have no problem doing what is asked of him. In this example it's called "lead by example" others will follow.

    Add to the fact that, apparently, Romo ASKED for this type of responsibility.

    You guy are seeing this all wrong.


    This is not an indictment against Romo, its an indictment against Garrett. Think about it, why the hell does Romo need to be involved in personnel, game plans, and play calling...........isn't that the job of the offensive coordinator?


    Jerry is saying he would rather have Romo make the game plan and call the plays than Garrett, that's my take on this whole incident.

    This certainly adds a new dimension to the 'who is calling plays' question.

    But, but, but, I have read in multiple post in this thread that Romo is dogging it and wanting to play the back 9 instead of showing up for practice.

    Now I hear Romo wanted to be more involved all along and was basically told no by Garrett and the coaching staff?


    I am confused, can somebody please explain which way it is? Is Romo dogging it or is Garrett so scared Romo may actually run the offense better than he does that he doesn't want Romo involved. So which way is it???

    Maybe the answer to this question that we have been waiting for since the season ended is not Garrett or Callahan, but Romo that will call the plays.

    It will be very interesting to see who gets the final say so. Garrett? Callahan? Romo? Jerry?

    It really isn't confusing at all to those without an agenda. The Jerry/Romo bashers will take any news and twist it to their set in stone opinions. Jerry and the staff agreed to give Romo more responsibilty and he accepted. It requires him to work even more than he already does in-season and hopefully will help the offense take it to the next level.

    I think ultimately Romo is going to call his own plays.I also think that since he's been asking for this for some time now that HE is the one that pushed the issue when doing the contract seeing how he wants to be a OC after playing.Maybe just maybe the "uncomfortable offseason" included what Tony wanted...more control of himself... which basically means we don't even "need" Jason Garrett.. Romo calls the offensive plays with input from Callahan..(Tony's hurry up blows Jason's playcalls away in productivity). And Garrett doesn't even touch defense so Kiffin has that under control. Jerry may as well be the head coach as a figurehead and dump Jason's salary. Romo always has to tell everyone where to line up anyways so what exactly does Garrett do all week. Shouldn't HE be sure all his players know what they're supposed to do? The only thing I think of when I think of JG is him moving his mic and spitting and putting his mic back EVERY time he's shown on TV...is that a nervous twitch or something?

    Now we can finally see how Romo is the leader of the team. I expect great numbers from Romo.

    We will see the play clock always tick down to 1 second left before snap now?
    Will we see a more passing attack through a Romo led offense?

    Regardless, I believe Romo is a great player and carries the team on his shoulders for the most part. Now I am excited to see him be involved in the game plans as well.

    Remember when Ray Lewis said they could predict our offense? Well im assuming that should change now..

    Actually if you read the tweets from Ed Werner, he said that Romo has been asking for some time to be more involved in the game planning and play calling and was basically told no till now.


    Jerry basically has waived the white flag and told Romo to do whatever the hell he wants to on offense. Design the plays, decide which personnel packages are on the field, and call the game from the line of scrimmage like Peyton does.


    Romo has also told Jerry he wants to be the Offensive Coordinator when he is done playing QB. So how the hell do you get that Romo has been dogging it from all of this???
