    True, but it's not wise making a desperation move to get a QB who hasn't won more than 8 games in Dallas the past 3 years. Romo can't carry a team we've seen that with the Cowboys. You put too much on his plate and we've seen the results. Even with a solid runner KC can't win because they need a QB who can carry the team.

    Romo is not that guy he's a good QB but he needs a solid team around to help take some of the load off his plate. You would thinks FANS here would know that by now. Romo would suffer more picks and strip sacks in KC than he ever did in Dallas. In only 8 starts Brady Quinn suffered 21 sacks. Put Romo behind their OL and give him their receiving corp that probably will be minus Bowe and see what happens.

    It does make it a much tougher choice.

    But that is what the trade would have to for..at a minumum. Maybe even Romo, Dallas' 1st and 2nd rounder.

    The value of the number one overall pick is enormous.
    Literally, if we owned 3 first rounders--say 20th, 22nd, 23rd...they would not add up to the 1st overall pick according to most value charts. Evenif we threw it out, it's be two 1sts and a second .

    Mind-boggling.


    Looking at their roster and results this year, I do think if KC got out 1st rounder and Romo, thy could quickly go from 2-14 to 10-6 or so. The lost a lot of games where they barely scored at all....and they do have weapons.

    I don't believe that there is a QB in free agency or the 2013 draft that can give the Dallas Cowboys a better chance to win than Tony Romo.

    In 2013 or 2014, I'd say for sure this is true.

    No I don't. KC has a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and say what you will about Reid, he can coach offense.

    They have good young talent on the OL. They have Hillis and Charles at RB. They have Bowe, Breaston, McCluster and Baldwin at WR. They are at the bottom of the league in passing but they are top 5 in rushing.

    Defensively, they have Shawn Smith, Dontari Poe, on the DL. They have Houston and Hali at OLB and Derrick Johnson at ILB. They have Flowers and Arenas at CB and Berry at Safety. They are young and loaded on defense. They are the number 8 scoring defense in the league last year.

    Yeah, I could see how they could be contending in a year or two easily.

    I felt last year was year to make a move in trading up to first pick for luck.

    What KC does not need is a develpmental player that would "grow up" with the team. They need a win now quarterback. In 3 years, many of their corp will be getting close to 3rd contracts or out of the league. Cassel was supposed to be that guy, but he is an abject failure.

    Also, the level of coaching skill between Andy Reid and Romeo Crennel cannot be overstated.

    It does not matter because Jerry does not believe in creative destruction despite his greatest teams being the direct result of that.

    Would have been nice, except for the cost.

    Extremely expensive

    2012 Draft picks: 1st,2nd,3rd,
    2013 Draft picks: 1st,2nd
    2014 Draft picks: 1st

    and maybe more

    I know Washington gave up:
    2012: 1st, 2nd
    2013: 1st
    2014: 1st

    and almost all GMs (maybe 30 of 32 or so?) had Luck ahead of RG3 pre-draft.

    I always figured Tony Romo, 2012 1st-6th, 2013 1st and 2nd would've done it. That looks like a steal now.

    I wouldn't either. Build the line then we can start looking for Romo's future replacement. But I think he has another few years left in him.

    absolutely but it will never happen.

    Dallas, unfortunately, needs to start thinking about the future. Romo, Witten, Ware are all past their primes.

    Actually, we had the LEAD in the Washington game before Romo started having his meltdown. It had nothing to do with the oline, running game, or the defense.

    Why? You have an established QB and you would rather role the dice on a draft pick? There is no guarantee that even a #1 pick will make it in the NFL. Romo is not perfect, but the team around him is not either. Especially the GM/defacto HC. I would rather take my chances this season with Romo and a HEALTHY team (with some upgrades to the O Line) than a rookie QB who may or may not be worth the investment. Draft a young QB next year in one of the later rounds and groom him to take over for Tony in a couple of years...

    Yes.

    If you go down their non-QB roster, player by player, there is not much difference in their team and ours. And if you compare it to what we were rolling with down the stretch, they were way better off.

    You'd think including Miles Austin (or maybe instead of Romo) in that trade would have ensured we got what we wanted, since he's the best receiver on the team (and definitely not a 'choker') according to you.

    No way in hell they want Romo for a number 1. Would you give up a 1 for him. Maybe a 3rd or 4th.

    Yes, he would give up a #1 for a failed QB.

    Certainly would have worked if they wanted Romo.
    Obviously, Dallas would have never given up Romo, all of the the 2012 draft, and the prizes of the next year's draft too. Way too rich....in their eyes anyway.

    Seeing that Indy didn't have to give up anything to keep that pick, it's hard to measure right away how they would have done long term.

    The better measures will be Washington and St Louis. The Skins gave up the farm and got a franchise player. We'll see how it works for them not having all those picks going forward. It sure helped that they drafted so well with what they had this year.

    Don't really agree with this but it doesn't matter. In a single game, long term conclusions can not be drawn. I maintain that if Romo is in a balanced offense with time to throw and a good defense to play with, he is a top 5 QB in the NFL.

    That's my opinion of Romo.

    Romo would have had little success in KC this season with the team they have. Cassel and Quinn combined for 27 turnovers and 40 sacks. Romo had 22 turnovers and was sacked 36 times on a team far more talented. A turnover prone gunslinger isn't a good fit for a team like KC they need a steady QB who can play mistake free football. KC's problems aren't just QB related they have issues that go deeper. Romo turns the ball over a lot and with KC's lack of talent at receiver that would lead to sacks and forced throws into coverage.

    KC does run the ball well but they need a QB who can take on a big load and not fold under it. Funny how some FANS say all Romo needs is a better team around him to win a ring and now you have FANS saying he could be successful in KC and one even went so far as to claim he could possibly lead them to a championship. :laugh2: One minute FANS say Romo needs a better team around him and the next minute they say he could take a crap team like KC and turn them into a winner. :rolleyes: If he can't win with the Cowboys he sure as hell isn't going to win in KC.
