    Tony Romo throws 8 passes, leads the team to 2 TD's, 1 of which was on an extremely short field due to a defensive play, the other set up by the running of Thompson, and people are talking about him as the QB of the future.

    Can I please remind you of

    *CLINT LONGLEY
    *JASON GARRETT
    *STEVE PEULLER
    *STEVE WALSH
    *GARY HOGEBOOM
    *KEVIN SWEENEY
    *GLEN CARANO

    What did these guys have in common? They all looked GOOD in a few games. Jason Garrett lit up a few teams at different times as the Cowboys backup. People had the audacity to ask him questions after big games about whether he desired to continue as the starter. This was with Hall of Fame QB Troy Aikman as the starter.

    Looking back can you believe that people even mentioned Garrett, or Steve Walsh in the same breath as Aikman? I can't.

    What I'm trying to say is that Tony Romo is Tony Romo. This is what Jerry Jones has been saying, and I for one agree with him. Does Big Bill agree? I have no idea, but I say again, I don't like Big Bill's sense of value for the QB position anyway.

    So, while many here want to say "Hail Romo", I say he is a smallish, limited, QB who will be a career backup if he even stays in the NFL. I said the same about Q. Carter (as did many others) and was shouted down for it at the time. But we see where he is.

    I'm not a Bledsoe fan either, but at least he has NFL caliber tools. I happen to think that Henson does too. I'm hoping that Jerry holds fast to his view on this.

    Romo looks good man, looked better at some things than Bledsoe.

    Romo finally played with a serious since of urgency last night and showed a good quick release with accuracy, I was impressed.

    I can't wait until we can get a real QB in here so people would stop lobbying for career backups to take over the reins.

    Hey, I'm with you on this. Great post!!

    I have no idea if Henson will EVER be any good. But at the VERY least, the guy was recognized by a whole lot of people as having some serious skill in college. At least he offers the franchise some, (maybe very, very slight) hope he can regain that skill, if given time to develop.

    As I said in another post, for every Delhomme, you have a thousand of the type of QBs you just named.
    I'm not slamming Romo, but the odds are he is just another one of them.

    The odds are against him. If he beats the odds good for us. I'm not holding my breath. Whats disgusting is the fact that we have to put up with all the chest thumping going on around here. I hope Henson and Romo both become great. I'm not going to promote one over the other just so I can create 3,000 threads saying I was right and the rest were wrong.

    Who cares as long as one makes it.

    yall can claim your not anti romo,but it sure looks like yall hate him to me.



    HENSON=DONE imo.im sick of seeing him with his slow drop back and predictable throws.

    meanwhile romo is impressing me.

    and lets not forget dallas cut delhomme.

    I'm hoping that Henson gets it figured out either this season or next offseason but that doesn't mean I'm not hoping that Romo turns it on too.
    I really don't think the backup QB debate should be as fracturing and divisive around here as it has become. I hope all 3 of our guys become legit studs cuz that sure would give us a lot of options.
    Honestly, I don't even care, just anyone, please someone become a long-term answer at the position. Right now, i'm mostly pulling for Bledsoe to get BP another ring.
    I don't think that Romo is the guy, really seems like a career backup to me. If he didn't have flashes of playing well, then why would you even keep him as a backup? But if he turns out to be more than that, fine, I'll be behind him 100%.

    If he's the QB of the future, we have no future. Stop dicking around and draft a QB high in the draft.

    All we are responding to are those who say Romo should play over Bledsoe. That is be the starter right now. We simply are presenting the opposing view which is we don't think we should waste time hoping an UFA will buck the odds. We are talking starter, not the #2 or #3 QB.

    Look how much time we wasted with Q. A lot of people who had watched him in college, knew it was going to be a waste of time hoping he would become another McNabb or Culpepper. He simply wasn't capable of reaching that level and it was obvious in his play, no matter how much we hoped he would "beat the odds".

    Easier said than done.

    But I do agree with you. You would think we would have given it a better shot than an inconsistent college QB like Q or 2 former baseballplayers who weren't even playing football when we signed them.

    Why can't you just give Romo the props he deserves. He played good last night. We should all be glad he stepped it up.

    I agree I think that Henson has alota talent. But for whatever reason Parcells just hates Henson thats all there is to it. But for now Romo is doing good and as a Cowboy fan I am very happy with the way Romo played.

    When Parcells is gone then Henson will get a chance. We will see if he has what it takes to beat out Romo. But dont think so little of Romo. Romo just might surprise you.
