    You are in denial. Romo will NEVER be the starter again here. This is Dak's team now.. and thank goodness. I wish Romo well in his future.. best team he could land on would be Denver because he will need a defense like that to carry him.

    I think the front office made a long-term decision. Certainly, they hope Prescott can handle the rest of the season as well as he has during the first portion but I think they will ride out the gamble... unless-and-if he struggles mightly in a playoff game. In short, I think the front office is willing to gamble securing the highest playoff seed possible or getting into the playoffs period. I will not be surprised if they have accepted the remote chance of the team stumbling or crashing and burning down the stretch. I believe their mindset would only change during the playoffs. My take.

    Not sure if he stays or not but IF I were Jacksonville I would definitely call the Cowboys.

    I hear you. I think we can all agree, or most of us, that Dak is the real deal. You don't do what he's been doing over the past 10 weeks and not be for real. He is our future at the position and considering the circumstances that took place (Romo going down), I think the future should continue. I'm not concerned about Romo winning somewhere else, would be happy for him like I was for Ware. I didn't think it was meant to be for Ware to win the ultimate football prize in Dallas and something tells me the same might be true for Romo.

    Dak is most certainly the starter but we will need Tony at some point this season. Glad to see him being such a stand up guy.

    This and sticking a mic JJ face immediately after each game. it's as if they wanted to create a QB controversy. But that is the price for being the QB of the Cowboys I guess.

    I thought that too however, I think he'll get traded mid season next year by a competitive team who either loses their starter to injury or that just needs a veteran QB to make a playoff run next year. It will be interesting.

    The greatest QB of all time Tom Brady wouldn't get a 1st round pick. What makes you think Romo would get one? Bradford got one because he is significantly younger than Romo and was a 1st overall pick.

    IMHO, its more accurate to say he did it for the betterment of the team.

    If that happened, it could end up being eerily similar to when the Cowboys traded Craig Morton to the Broncos and then met in the Super Bowl.

    Except if it happened now, Denver would be the team with the doomsday defense

    :clap:

    Thank you for doing this. I wanted to do something similar but you expressed it much more eloquently and more sensitively than I could have done. Excellent post erod!!

    I am a big Dak fan, but I have noticed that is he really lucky, thru the 9 games he has had luck on his side, so I wonder how it goes
    when he doesnt have the good luck?
    I know when giants went on their runs, manning was very lucky, and the team was too.
    Sometimes luck plays a big part in wins. whether it is bad or good.

    I have also seen some really lame passes, mixed in with the really good ones.
    There have been a few times where he had nothing on the ball and it has fell way short.

    So while I like dak and the winning and want to see it play out, I have seen some flaws that make me think, he could be a 1 season
    wonder.
    I really dont know, so I would keep tony around till I was sure.
    I think the jones boys are sure hence the tony speech, but we still have to see how this plays out.

    I know Dak seems to be really good late in the 4th, like he is just waiting for that, then he plays for real, or just gets lucky
    I dont know.

    Erod. I just love your writing. Its like poetry. This one though left me with a bitter sweet feeling of emotion. Romo is a good dude. I will weep when he decides to leave Dallas for another team.

    also no matter the tony speech or not the media will continue to go on and on about this,
    So maybe this was for the team, so they know.

    no way are we paying 24 million for a backup next season. He will either be traded or released June 1st.

    Thats assuming that Dak doesnt struggle and Tony doesn't get a crack to start again here.

    I believe any talk between Romo and Jerry regarding a trade to a contender will be done completely behind the scenes. We won't hear about it until it happens, IMO. Romo has always been the type of man to handle his business in a mature and rational manner, never more evident than when he went into JJ's office as a relative youngster (no agent present) to talk about a new contract. The story goes, as I recall, that Tony Told Jerry: "The reason I want you to pay me is that then you'll have to play me. You crunch your numbers and I'll talk to my guy (agent) and let's get this done" (or words to that effect). Tony left the office and Bill Parcells (who was also present) turned to Jerry and said "I think we just found our QB". The rest is history, so to speak. I can absolutely see Tony redoing his contract in an effort to make a trade more amenable. Time will tell.
