    He started his career with 3 first team all-pros on the O-line, a 1st team all-pro RB that won the rushing title by over 300 yards, a HOF TE, and Pro Bowl receiver.

    Rookie QBs just do not get all of that day 1. He was afforded so much time to get better simply because the talent around him picked up 90% of the slack.

    The Cowboys in 2016 was 1 of maybe 3 teams at most that was equipped enough on offense for a rookie QB to prosper. Imagine what a veteran or heck, even a very skilled rookie QB could've done with that team?

    What he had was a top end offensive line and a great RB at the time. But Dez didn't hit 800 yards. Witten was past his prime. So who else, Beasley, Terrence Williams, Hurd? We're not looking at a group of WRs that can carry anyone. What he had was that OL and RB. A rookie can't ask for more. Still, the team went 13-2 with him in there. That can't be easy. So what did the Cowboys do to build off of this season? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. The same type of off season they usually do. They even let OL Leary walk. That was stupid. He wasn't asking for crazy money either.

    Our QB is limited, but our GM doesn't seem to see it. That 2016 season is a perfect example of what works. A top end OL and a balanced attack and you don't have to have Aaron Rodgers to win a lot of games.

    If Romo was 10 times better, what element or elements of the team held him back? We didn't win anything with Romo so what was the cause of that?

    Getting dinked goes to how you treat people, not what you say. Just be nice, makes it easy and fun here.

    Even if he was given the balll....he still looked like a bumbling stooge. They acted lije they were never not given the ball with a few seconds left. I have seen them not start the clock so officials and teams can get set.

    Sketchy as heck.

    I blame you.

    I agree. For better or worse....romo said i believe in me....i believe in us. Romo actually had a very good 4th gtr qb rating and come from behind win %. At least half the time he didnt....the stupid defense caved.

    Romo was a good qb.....good cowboy....and should be roh.
