    You're ridicolous. Romo is easily a top 10 QB in this league and MAYBE even argubly top 5. Any coach will tell you that he is a great QB and if KC had the chance to trade for Romo they would. As someone already mentioned KC is not a scrub team, do not let the record fool you. You are right he has lost big games in the past (and most recently a few weeks ago)but he's also won a ton more that we should of lost. If Romo was traded to KC, that would propel them to being a strong contender or even favorite to win it all.

    Yep.

    If a top flight QB prospect is there, you have to.

    The contract makes it a no brainer.

    Just think. The skins and colts are only paying what.....25M for their QBs.

    Think of what the difference could bring in free agency. Basically a free Brandon Carr.

    I would and then I'd trade down for multiple other picks....trouble is finding someone to do that and in this draft not going to happen.

    You have no idea what kind of player the #1 overall pick will get you because the draft is a crapshoot. If the Cowboys a much more talented team than KC can't win more than 8 games in 3 years with Romo then what makes you think the Chiefs would be enthused enough to use the #1 overall pick as part of a trade for him?

    What kind of value would it be for them to make that trade for a soon to be 33 year old QB who folds in pressure situations and has a losing record the past 3 seasons? Romo can't carry a team and if he can't help the Cowboys win more than 8 games in 3 years he certainly isn't going to be able to turn KC into a winner. They have a dreadful team and Romo would most certainly go bust there especially with their receiving corp.

    There are very good players in this draft, but there is not a guy who grades as a likely top 10 qb.

    Romo is a top 10 QB but he certainly isn't a top 5. You would think after the rotten egg he laid last Sunday some of you would have stopped with the nonsense by now. Romo is a very good "regular season" QB but he's not a "great" QB and isn't a good big game/playoff QB. Romo wouldn't be able to do anything in KC they're a mess. Romo has a losing record with the Cowboys the last 3 seasons so good luck with him turning KC into a winning team. Dream on!


    This is coming from someone who called me ridiculous. :laugh2:

    No, but they might give you two 1s and two 2nds this year and next.

    How do you know Romo would get them closer to a SB than those QB's? A couple of them have led teams closer to a SB than Romo has ever gotten the Cowboys.

    When Romo is not having to come from behind every game, he is a top 5 QB. When he can be comfortable in the pocket, he is as good a QB as there is in this league. The problem for us is that we don't have the talent to allow him to do that. Imagine how good Romo could be with a good young OL and a top 5 running game?

    No because even if you had a top QB prospect they would suck here because we have no running game and lack imagination on offense.

    I don't know it for sure, but their odds go way up with Romo vs. Matt Flynn and Alex Smith who could not get anyone to pay them $10mm per year in a league that desperately needs qb's. Maybe all the GM's of qb needy teams like Arizona, Buffalo, Minny, Miami, KC, NYJ etc. are fools and Smith and Flynn are pretty good.

    If Romo hits the open market, he won't be crawling back to us and accepting $8mm for 3 years to be benched in the middle of the season.

    Look who's talking have you even watched the Chiefs this season? Dude they're a pathetic team that won 2 games all season. Most FANS here say Romo can't win in Dallas because he doesn't have the team around him. You think KC has a team he can win with? lol The comment below speaks volumes who's being ridiculous. That's has to be one of the most ridiculous comments I've ever read on this board.

    Yes. No hesitation. Use that #1 pick to get as many picks as much leverage as possible for next year and then tradeup for Bridgewater.

    KC needs a young QB they can grow with into the future not a soon to be 33 year old QB who may only have 2-3 years left and has never been able to get it done in Dallas. Romo would not succeed in KC with the lack of talent that team has. Bowe is the only decent receiver KC has and he may not be back. They don't have a Jason Witten to help bail Romo out he would fail miserably in KC. What a silly debate this is. :rolleyes:

    The argument I'm having is with those who think he can turn KC around. One FAN thinks the Chiefs could possibly win it all with Romo. :laugh2: You don't think Romo would be having to battle from behind in KC? Romo is a good QB that's not the argument but he's not a QB a dreadful team like KC needs to invest the #1 overall pick on. They already burned a #2 on Cassel a few years ago because he had success with a load of talent around him in NE.

    If Romo can't win more than 8 games in 3 years with the Cowboys he'll never approach that number of wins in KC I can promise you that. Romo would be beat up every week in KC. For Romo to have success he needs a solid team around him offensively and defensively. He simply can't carry a bad team.

    I think in 2011 Romo would have been the 2nd best qb in the craptastic AFC. In 2012 he would have been 3rd. The pro bowl qb this year is Matt Shaub who is no great shakes. I think Romo would give them a top 5 AFC quarterback behind Brady and Manning and with- soon to be behind Big Ben and Luck. He is a better player than Shaub and Flacco.


    KC has a better line than Dallas. They have better/more explosive back. They don't have a great receivers, but Cassel is so, so bad. If they had league average qb play, they would have been a better than average team.

    Don't disagree but I'm not talking about Romo here. I'm talking about what Romo might be able to do in KC behind their OL and their #5 rushing attack.

    I think he could be really good in that situation. You know Pork Chop is going to run a WCO and that too would suit Romo well IMO.
