    1. Press or TV agents or advisers, family or wives, friends or relatives, fans or hangers on, ignore them on matters of football, they don’t know what’s happening here.
    2. Don’t forget to have fun, but don’t be the class clown. Clowns and leaders don’t mix. Clowns can’t run a huddle.
    3. A quarterback throws with his legs more than his arms. Squat and run. Fat quarterbacks can’t avoid the rush.
    4. Know your job cold. This is not a game without errors. Keep yours to a minimum. Study.
    5. Know your own players. Who’s fast? Who can catch? Who needs encouragement? Be precise. Know your opponent.
    6. Be the same guy everyday. In condition, preparing to lead, studying your plan. A coach can’t prepare you for every eventuality. Prepare yourself and remember, impulse decisions usually equal mistakes.
    7. Throwing the ball away is a good play. Sacks, interceptions, and fumbles are bad plays. Protect against those.
    8. You must learn to manage the game. Personnel, play call, motions, ball handling, proper reads, accurate throws, play fakes. Clock, clock, clock, don’t you ever lose track of the clock.
    9. Passing stats and TD passes are not how you’re gonna be judged. Your job is to get your team in the endzone and that’s how you’re gonna be judged.
    10. When all around you is in chaos, you must be the hand that steers the ship. If you have a panic button, so will everyone else. Our ship can’t have panic buttons.
    11. Don’t be a celebrity quarterback. We don’t need any of those. We need battlefield commanders that are willing to fight it out everyday, every week, and every season, and lead their team to win after win after win.

    How many commandments did Romo violate after Parcells left? IMO he violated 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, and 11.

    Romo is yesterday. What's more important, how many of these does Dak violate?

    How many of these so-called commandments are really relevant anyway? Why would anyone be concerned with how they apply to Romo at this point anyway? Seems it would be more relevant to be asking how they relate to Dak.

    Every QB should embrace number 9.

    It's an indictment of Romo that he chose to ignore what Parcells taught him. After Parcells left Romo behaved like a teenager without parental supervision. It's also an indictment of Wade Phillips and JG that they allowed it to happen.

    This was a nice post until the Romo curve ball. The Aikman Cowboys were a loose bunch. A strong head coach and strong leadership from the players kept them focused on football. That doesn’t exist with the current team.

    I think only #11....too many commercials.

    I feel like he meets the rest for the most part.

    Except for the throwing the ball away when it's not there. He's improving, but has more work to do there. I'd also like to see him be more consistent in the first half.

    I was going to respond to this thread but it's so dumb and false that it doesn't deserve a response.
