    Yeah TC talked about this yr. If Quincy wouldnt have been a coke head Romo wouldve been cut. They kept him on the team because thy had a roster opening with Carter being released. TC said Parcells didnt think Romo was very good

    BP didnt like Romo much either. Parcells wanted a vet running his team not a young player.

    Good topics they covered.

    We should get a portion back from Ratliff for what he did. The league needs to consider the message they'll be sending by letting this go without some form of repercussion.

    I could care less how Romo got here. Point is, he's here now.

    If the NFL was smart, they would award this grievance to the team. However, when we are talking about the Cowboys or Skins you never know what bogus ruling they make come up with to shaft it's richest and most prolific franchise.

    Not new news, this has been mentioned before by Shannahan. The offered him more but he came here because he felt he had a better chance to make the team.

    Maybe I'm naive, but I don't buy into the league having a grudge against any team. I'm sure every fan of every team in the league thinks their team is persecuted.

    Ratliff has been in my rear-view mirror for a while now, but sometimes, objects (issues) are closer than they seem....it would be terrific if they got some cap relief, not holding my breath

    I think there were whispers of bi-polar disorder related to Rat and he does seem to fit the symptoms. It's a rough disorder to live with, especially when not medicated/diagnosed, etc. Still hate Rat for his actions though and were no way related to his personal issues. That would be great to get that cap room back and is rightfully owed back. It impeded the team from improving the position even though the team did have cap room (beside the point). Odd that JJ would extend him knowing all that...I wonder why Mick suggested Tyron get redone first? The more expensive position?

    I agree and I have I mentioned before this is new way of holding out without getting fined by team. Slippery slope for NFL and they better take Dallas out of this equation and just think about whats best for league.

    Very true, all 2nd/3rd contracts would become fair game under questionable leadership (agents).

    This and Smith is more important than Dez is my guess.

    Being the LT that is true. Smith's potential 10 million plus cap number from the 5th year option is probably last resort for 2015.

    That's the real story. Romo is here cause of Sean Payton.

    When Payton went to NO, he was trying to get Romo to come. Bledsoe was the starting QB that time.

    Okay. Thanks, but I think TC is wrong. Parcells was quoted talking to the Seattle press while Romo was a third-stringer saying that he thought he had something special. I believe that conversation is where the often-quoted, "moxie" phrase came from. I believe that even then, Parcells would have kept Romo over QC.
