    Only ignorant cowboy fans blamed Romo solely for playoff failures

    Thanks for assuming I did though.

    I can only imagine how bad things would have been if we had access to websites back in 1989. People would have destroyed Aikman on the internet after going 1-15 his first year.

    Romo was the best QB for the Cowboys since Aikman retired Without question. Some people think QBs grow on trees.

    After Allen Rodgers won a Super Bowl, nobody remembered Farve. Maybe just getting to an NFC Championship game will have the same effect here and do away with the Ghost of Antonio Ramiro.

    I lost faith in Romo after he threw that pick against Washington that cost us the playoff spot. Then Jerry gave him a $50 mil bonus.

    Sorry. Romo's legacy is "nothing much". Lots of stats. Not much more.

    Im not attacking "Son" until he has total control and the organization remains the same after a couple years.
    His old man is a straight up aggressive cancer.

    Romo had fans divided. Some thought he was the best thing since sliced bread and others realized he wasn't good enough to overcome Jerry's incompetence as a owner/gm.

    It’s pretty funny seeing all the “I NEVER wanted Romo gone!” sentiment around here.

    The fanbase was so divided.

    Many of us were smart enough to know that Romo was a damn good QB, and you don’t get rid of damn good QBs.

    But there were MANY others who wanted him gone in the worst way possible. The negative media narratives that come with being the Cowboys QB had gotten inside their feeble little minds.

    And now that Romo’s retired and is universally respected as an ex-Pro Bowl QB and brilliant TV analyst, EVERY Cowboys fan loved him all along!

    Some of you are lying.

    Fans and some in the media called him Tony Turnover. Yes fans are schizophrenic and in forums have convenient memory lapses.

    Romo just need better coaches and a different scheme. Oops wrong guy. He needed an elite offensive line, oops wrong guy.

    It’s pretty comical people mention 2012 as when they were done with Romo when the Redskis game, Garrett had free blitzers running at Romo all game long.

    2012 was actually the inflection point of the Garrett era.

    Romo was given control of the offense in 2014. Garrett didn’t even have him in game planning until 2012 and after that, Jerry started to have enough of Garrett as play caller. That’s when Jerry made Callahan play caller and then forced Garrett to have Romo in game planning meetings. Jason tried to spin this as making sense and him being a part of the decision making, when it was purely Jerry Jones and probably a Romo saying it was a condition for him to sign the new contract. Even Wade Wilson was basically saying that Romo would now influence the offense more after 2012.

    Jerry even picked Frederick because of Romo, not Garrett per Jerry himself.
