    I know most people dont read to much into what Jerry says anymore, but something he said stood out. The part when he stated he wants "Romo to CONTRIBUTE" to a Superbowl. This could mean many things.
    1)Helping Dak progress and win one for the team (this is my hope)
    2)Forces Romo into the lineup if we make it to the Bowl.

    Lots of you will say im crazy for thinking Jerry would be that insane to throw Romo into the Superbowl game. Let me remind you, this is Jerry we are talking about here. This is the same guy that has done very detrimental things to this team to just say "He knows football".

    Does this concern anyone else? Or am i just over thinking and freaking out for no reason? Personally i think if Dak takes this team to the Superbowl, no way he can be benched, but this is Jerry.

    For the record, i am not predicting a Superbowl appearance by any means. I am just stating what i think is going thru Jerry's Johnny Walker blue soaked brain. Like who says this? In case Dak has a health issue? Jesus Jerry enough with the jinxing. And how is doing what gives us the best chance to have TONY contribute to a championship best for the team? I am just so concerned this man is going to screw this up somehow.

    Rant over

    “I want to do what gives us the best chance to have Tony contribute to a championship,” Jones said. “I do want Tony to be ready to go in case that Dak should have an issue health wise, and that gives us strength going into the playoffs.”

    I read this and my take on this is once Dallas locks up the bye that Romo will likely get the start to shake off the rust so that if he needs to come in he will have some playing time under his belt.
    I saw nothing in the comments to make me think that Jerry would be pushing for a change at QB only wants to be prepared in case Romo is called on

    His comments went on to talk about Romo being ready to step in and succeed should something happen "health-wise to Dak" (his exact words). Don't read too much into his comments there.

    The guy loves Tony and feels great that he's the backup. He wants him sharp if he's needed. I imagine this means he'll get some snaps if we clinch HFA.

    Why even jinx the health of Dak in the first place? Why can he not just SHUT UP.

    I'm pretty good at Jerryspeak but this is pretty clear and doesn't require an interpretation. He's right also.

    Please tell me you are kidding. If Dak leads this team to a Superbowl and gets benched for Romo i will not follow this team anymore. That would be the last straw for me.

    This is a huge reach.

    He meant just to coach up Dak and help with the offense.

    1st off there are no such things as jinx. We all know that any football player is 1 hit away from an injury and can happen at anytime. The team can hide their heads in the sand or they can prepare in case. I prefer the later to be prepared for anything that comes this teams way.

    How is doing what gives us the best chance to have "Romo" contribute to a championship the right thing? Thats not doing whats best for the team. I love Romo, but he hasnt done anything on the field this season to warrant starting a game over Dak

    (PSSST! Check out what's listed beneath his avatar and username!)

    The topic is moot. Prescott is the quarterback for the foreseeable future and will only be replaced for any length of time due to an unfortunate injury.

    There is more than one way to contribute. Romo is contributing every week, you see it on the side line shots of him coaching Dak up.

    I guess he does need an interpreter.

    Jones is talking about the 2016 postseason only.

    Romo is the best option for the team that Jones refers to if Prescott is injured and cannot play any time between now and February 2017.
