    If that were they case it would be a massive mistake, because lets face it, Romo is no Peyton Manning. I think we can all agree on that.

    Now if was in fact Romo putting in more time like Peyton does, then by all means that is a great thing. I just wonder why it hasn't always been that way?

    I agree, this is probably how it went down. However, that is not the spin certain posters are trying to make this out to be.


    Certain posters are saying "why didn't Romo put this much effort in before?"

    Well if he asked and was told no, how is that on him?

    Maybe because Romo was told no.

    If Romo asked to have more input and help design the plays and personel packages and maybe even do some play calling on the field, and was told no, then that's not on him.

    If you asked your boss for more responsibility and he told you no, do you just show up on weekends and work for the hell of it?

    I don't think you have to ask to put in more time and effort on your job, though lol...you just do it.

    Now if you're talking more responsibility, that's another issue.

    So, does "more effort" = more dedication and time, or does "more effort" = more responsibilities?

    And, yeah, Jerruh didn't help clarify things lol...

    Hold on pal.. we are talking about 2 different things here. If it is a situation where he asked to be more involved in the play calling, planning, etc. and he was told no, then that is one thing. That is how you are comprehending the article, I didn't read it that way and neither did the masses.

    However, if we are talking about being one of the first out there and the last to leave, spending a lot more time in the film room, rallying up his receivers and throwing the ball to them earlier before camps starts, and on and on.. then my question would be why did it take so long to start doing those things? That is how I was reading the article.

    JJ has been in spin-mode trying to make everything that is happening, including wanting an OC, as being Jason Garrett. So why wouldn't he also make it seem that Romo's input isn't happening without the involvement of Jason...

    Beginning this week, I want everyone on the board to work 7 am - 6pm Mon-Sat. Then on Sundays, I want them involved for another several hours that include max stress (mental and physical)--if a few broken bones happen, maybe a punctured lung here or there, that too goes with the job.:D
    Oh yeah, but you also have to be good enough to be one of only a few out of millions that would like to do your job.

    Funny thing is, this implicates all those that actually blame Romo. This clearly evidences that the game-plan was not Romo, but the 'coaches'. And that game plan had to consistently be scrapped, with Romo having to bail out the "first half" scoreless outings. Now he wants Romo to actually be a 'coach' as well.

    Jerry said it from the beginning of this off-season. It is about maximizing the talent of Romo.

    That's not what he was saying. He was saying YOU would actually be happy if/when the cowboys win as opposed to some folks where you think they may actually be mad if the cowboys win.

    Great Point..............this is an indictment of Garrett. Jerry is basically saying that the offense Garrett has run the last 6 seasons is not getting the job done, we need our QB to become a pseudo offensive coordinator to really get things going.

    If you would rather have your QB calling plays then your OC...........pretty telling.

    Even after the draft. they essentially states that Tony was getting too much pressure up the middle. So they need to protect him... I mean, Jerry isn't going to invest millions in Romo, work to get the middle of the line secured, and say Tony is going to be heavily involved in the game-planning from the get go, if he didn't believe in Romo.

    Well, what folks was he talking about? I'm one of the biggest critics out there right now, so I assumed he was talking about me. If not, I sincerely apologize Apollo.

    Then you would have to point the finger right back at Jerry. If he wants his QB calling the plays because the OC isn't doing a good enough job, then why on earth are we keeping the OC (Jason Garrett)???

    Spinning away.:bang2:

    It is what it is.


    What Jerry's saying is Romo needs to be a leader, remember they tried this a couple years ago, Romo was there leading workouts bla,bla. That just went away didn't it?

    Jerry expects him to show some leadership, that's what this is all about.

    Is Romo a leader or he is not. Jerry's about to force that hand. I actually feel bad for Tony, by the time the season starts he'll have so much pressure on him he'll be a mental mess.

    And you should start by telling your current employer something along those lines as well. lol. We all know what we would like to tell our employers but some things are better left unsaid. Like someone said on here if Jerry paid me $110 mil I would be pretty damn loyal.

    From the get go, Jerry has been in spin-mode regarding the OC and Jason Garrett calling the plays, not Tony Romo. Now, Jerry is essentially coming out and saying Romo is going to be involved in drawing up the game-plan, while throwing out remarks that Jason doesn't mind and in fact, is encouraging of it. Ed Werder is also commenting, saying Tony Romo has asked before to be more involved, and previously told no. Now, he is being allowed to Further, Werder quotes JG as saying, whenever Romo was involved, somehting good comes out of it. S

    So the offensive-play calling is a serious question-mark, and JJ comes out now and says, Romo is going it be involved. Spin anyway one wants about Romo, but this is an indictment of Jason Garrett, plain and simple.
