    Seriously, come on man. What you expect Romo not to sign a contract like that? You expect him to take less? You do know that if he was a FA, he was still going to sign a massive deal, right? If it wasn't here, it was going to be somewhere else. If you think otherwise, you are fooling yourself.

    LOL, you are so full of crap it's funny. Luck was horrible in both games of the playoffs, it was his turnovers and inaccuracy that created the giant hole in a game they should have easily won. Holding that game up as some kind of pedestal for quarterback play shows how clueless you are. Alex Smith easily outplayed Luck and was fantastic all game long. What a laugh.

    Yes. Oh my. You nailed it. If you are speaking of JUST last year.

    Way to sample size it.

    These are the kinds of threads where you find the people that think one Player is why a team wins or loses on a yearly basis and nobody else should share the blame...that is where, in your mind, you pull out a Bill Engvall catch phrase and (again in your own mind)'s your sign so you know not to have to deal with certain people.

    So you read someone saying that the reason this team loses is because of Tony Romo and nothing your mind you say...

    We invested the majority of our resources into offense, so yes, the offense should have done more than the defense, especially since the defense was undermanned while the offense was mostly healthy.

    There's always going to be some thing or the other to blame. Romo is 'doing it all by himself'? How is that? We've spent year after year making the team "Romo friendly". The vast majority of our top pics went on offense. Just by doing that, your'e saying the offense should be skilled enough to carry the majority of the burden. Dez Bryant, Tyron Smith, Travis Fre

    No comments from me on Luck, but that poster you are responding to does not remotely understand the overall game of football.
    He and a few others badly degrade the quality of this website.

    What if making the offense Romo friendly was a strategic mistake by the brain trust that passes as a front office here? What if Romo needs a more "structured" offense that let's him do his thing but doesn't have to carry the team ever Sunday?

    Anyone that watches this team play week after week and knows a damn thing about football should know Romo is not the one to blame for this teams lack of success. He is what keeps them from being a 3 -13 squad.

    The Romo-friendly moves are great stuff. I have never read about any changes that were Aikman-friendly, or in today's game, Manning-friendly . Some fan-friendly playoff and Super Bowl wins should have been the result, but it wasn't.

    He's been hurt quite a bit and it's hurt his chances.

    But even way back when Parcells, Payton and a whole slew of good coaches and players rolled in and out...

    He still didn't and hasn't won but one playoff game.

    That's soon to be going on 8 years now.

    And if you want to count the last 3 seasons were we lost our last game to miss the playoffs..

    which were essentially 3 more playoff games for us.. starts to get really thick with reasons to move on soon.

    Romo can't be fired either; we're married to him and his salary. But this thread has gone on for 11 pages and I don;t see you tell anyone else to "give it a rest.". Why should Jerry be immune from criticism just because he isn't going anywhere? That's just silly.

    Jerry is the root of this team's problems. I dislike Garrett and disliked Wade Phillips even more but one man is responsible for bringing them here. People accepting (and defending Jerry) is a fan's version of Stockholm Syndrome.

    Do you see anyone on this site can can do anything about any aspect of this team? If that was the criteria for posting, then no one would post or give their opinion.

    Truth be told, this was one of the reasons we gave up two first round picks for Galloway. In addition, Jerry brought in an offensive minded HC in Gailey and let Aikman attend the workouts of potential draft picks (LaFleur) that Aikman gave his stamp of approval on before he was drafted.

    And Aikman was on the decline by the time we got Galloway.

    Jerry has said that Galloway was a last effort to try and win one more Super Bowl with Aikman. He also said that it was a desperation move because he knew that the salary cap and age was ripping the team apart.

    Gailey was far from Aikman friendly. A totally different offense didn't help Troy. Galloway was a last effort for the Super Bowl by Jerry. LaFleur could be considered an Aikman move.

    Gailey followed Switzer and had success in Pittsburgh. We had some success his first year but the whole thing with benching Irvin for some scrub didn;t go over well. I say it was Aikman friendly in a sense that his hire was geared towards improving the offense.

    Sounds like what Romo did against the Redskins in that win and get in game. 3 interceptions.

    Only difference is that Luck rallied his team back and took responsibility of his turnovers to win against the 5th ranked defense in the league.
