Its really amazing a player with so much football success (Brady) would sign a team friendly contract. It allows NE to be aggressive in the draft and in FA. Brady stats are impressive. He has done so with less talent at WR and TE. He has better offensive line and maybe push at RB. Brady: 3 Super Bowl victories 2 Super Bowl MVP awards 2 NFL MVP awards 8 All Pros 5 AFC Championships NFL 2000s ALL Decade Team Romo: 0 Super Bowl victories 0 Super Bowl MVP awards 0 NFL MVP awards 3 All Pros 0 NFC Championships I am sure the timing of Brady new contract couldn't come at worse time for Romo and his agent. Romo runs risk of looking really bad if he presses for top dollar. He simply doesn't have the accomplishments to back it up. His biggest obstacle won't be Jerry but rather fans. In a way, NE might have forced Jerry to practice fiscal responsibility (which is good thing). Flacco has leverage from winning the super bowl. Romo is finishing second season at 8-8 and isn't getting younger. We find out shortly how much sanity Jerry has left.
