I remember thinking that when Romo was negotiating his last deal, his friends should have been telling him to get out. As it turned out, they surprisingly *had* a chance in 2016, and surprisingly again (to me at least) didn't give it to Tony.
But being a Cowboy likely had a lot to do with his announcing deal. He made out financially.
Dak will make out ok financially too. Doubt that he'll get a 2016 team ever again, though. Much like Tony, really. Probably will have his best team around him his first year starting.
Tony had TO, Glenn, and Witten. Jackpot. *And* a defense. Dak had 3 All Pro olinemen and and All Pro RB, and an All Pro Lee. Never gonna match that again. Since then no one but Zach has made All Pro.
Think about what was the driving force behind 2016. It was the offensive line. We had an aging Witten, TWill, Dez, Beasley, and of course, Zeke. Not exactly the greatest show on turf. That offensive line made everyone look good. Even kept that defense off the field.
