    If they do get rid of Romo, who would they realistically be able to get who’s better?

  2. brenenostler says: Nov 6, 2012 8:23 PM

    Every year we think it’s going to be Romo’s last year in Dallas. And he always does just enough to secure his job for next year. The guy never even has to face competition in training camp. I bet he’ll be there beyond 2013.

    It all depends on their record at season end, if Cowboys are in a position to grab either Barkley or Smith they will do it. Too you never know who will be available in FA, did anyone think Peyton Manning would be available this time last season?

    Most overhyped, overrated QB EVER.

    I’ll send John Skelton to Dallas for Romo…. Then Romo can be appreciated by AZ and Dallas.

    I know he can be great. I’ve seen it! (13-3, 12-4, 10-6) We just need a real coach, a good play caller, and an owner that will shut the heck up.

    No more dumb draw plays. No more trying to establish a run game without a dominant runner. You have so many good receiving options! Line up in shotgun and let’er rip! It’s obvious but the no-huddle the past few games! This team makes me pull my hair out.

    Let me tell you how this is going to go down, Brees is franchised and Sean Payton is getting a contract voided out in NO, does anyone else smell CONSPIRACY. My guess is you’ll see Brees and Payton together in Dallas, while drafting a guy in the first round like a Landry Jones or That kid from Georgia, ‘cus we all know Barkley is going #1 overall!

    Brees signed a new $100 million contract with NO a few months ago. He is going nowhere.

    Landry Jones stock has dropped considerably in the last year-second or third round is about where he sits right now.

    Aaron Murray from UGA? I smell undrafted FA in his future.

  9. axltcu says: Nov 6, 2012 9:06 PM

    Manning was an anomaly. Let’s really be realistic about this.

    As far as 2013 FA’s go you got Joe Flacco who is either going to be franchised or re-signed. After that there is a major drop off in talent with Matt Moore, Jason Campbell, Tavaris Jackson, and Drew Stanton.

    Two potential trade targets would be Mike Vick and Tim Tebow. Neither would help the Cowboys because the last thing they need are more media headaches.

    Then there’s the draft. If the season ended today they would have to make a major trade to get Barkley or Smith. Considering how many problems they have besides QB that would be foolish. They already gave up too much for Claiborne and it has come back to bite them in the ass. They might be in position to get Tyler Wilson. But looking at their schedule the Cowboys are probable to win more than lose. When all is said and done I doubt they will be able to get him barring another trade up.

    Then you have to ask who could they get in round 2. Tyler Bray, EJ Manuel, and Tahj Boyd would be the most likely round 2 targets. Then you have to ask would any of those guys be better than Romo.

    If anything they should go after one of those round 2 guys to compete with Romo in camp but you’re not gonna find someone better than Romo immediately.

    lol.. romo looked great when garrett wasnt calling the plays…. fire garrett

  11. eugenesaxe says: Nov 6, 2012 9:44 PM

    Keep the QB, trade the GM.

  12. whitecastleisafoodgroup says: Nov 6, 2012 9:48 PM

    The Jets, Raiders, Cardinals, Bills, Chiefs, Jaguars, Vikings … pick one. Any of those teams would welcome Romo with open arms.

    I typically love making jokes of Jerruh but at this point it’s getting nothing but sad and feel badly for Cowboy fans. Such a proud franchise under Tex Schramm and now it’s just a punch line for “knock-knock” and “glory hole” jokes.

    Ah, not quite sure you heard the news months ago but Brees is signed to a huge contract. So your “conspiracy” is voided before it started.

  14. logic4sale says: Nov 6, 2012 10:22 PM

    Look, this is a very interesting question… The answer is yes, Romo will be a Dallas Cowboy is 2013. I also believe that Sean Payton will be in Dallas based on who Sean Payton is… FACTS: Payton wants to leave a legacy! He has already been the “savior” of New Orleans football but imagine the image he’d have if he lead THE Dallas Cowboys to their first, and long awaited, title since 95… Not only that,but doing it with a QB that supposedly couldn’t “get over the hump”… Payton would solidify himself in the football HOF. The weapons are there in Dallas and Payton would utilize them because he adapts his offense to the SKILLS of his players not adjusts his players to HIS offense (see Jason Garrett). I know it’s a stretch and a long way out but it’s harder to imagine this not happening. Time will tell all…

    “Most overhyped, overrated QB EVER.”


    Umm, no.

    That would be Mike Vick….

  16. paulsmith107 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:36 PM

    Lol who is out there that can replace him. Drew Brees very unlikely. Landry jones is a joke and most people say he is a third rounder at best. The problem isn’t tony romo! Yes he has thrown a bunch of picks but the play calling the penalties clock management and lack of urgency are what dooms this team. Sean Payton will not be here nor brees. This is romo’s team and it’ll stay that way till he retires

  17. randomguy9999 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:37 PM

    like him or not, Romo is second on the all time QB rating list….. above Elway, Marino, Montana… everyone but Rodgers…. and while rating doesn’t say everything by a long shot…. it says a lot.

    so what’s the problem?

    the owner/gm/vp personnel runs a circus

  18. paulsmith107 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:39 PM

    Oh and romo was never 12-4 his records are as follows 9-7 some of those wins weren’t all him Bledsoe was the starter. 13-3, 9-7, 11-5, 6-10 not all the ten loses were his kitna had some and 8-8. So he has had three wining 2 losing one 500 and finally this year who knows how it will end up

  19. buffalose says: Nov 6, 2012 10:42 PM

    If Romo is the problem, why isn’t he being locked out if the locker room?

  20. moturnovers24 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:47 PM

    Romo is going to b in Dallas tell he retires Jason Garrett gone at the end of the season

  21. goldrush36 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:47 PM

    @mikebyrne1502 Way to keep up on current events wingnut. Brees only signed the largest contract ever in the offseason. Oh and Barkley is far from a lock especially as he and his team keeps flopping

  22. mhalt99 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:51 PM

    Romo will be alright….he just needs to become a real deal throwback Cowboy. Got 2 Hookers and and 8 Ball anyone….anyone…..looking at you #88

  23. cliffleesbeard says: Nov 6, 2012 11:13 PM

    This is the only poll I voted on today…

  24. mikebyrne1502 says: Nov 6, 2012 11:48 PM

    I’m sorry should have clarified I meant via trade, I know he’s the saints franchise player signed 100m right, I just don’t think he remains with NO when Sean payton heads to Dallas and jerry Jones will make that trade happen.

  25. jerryjonesmustdie83 says: Nov 6, 2012 11:58 PM

    Everybody who says maybe romo will be quarterback and Garrett is gone at the end of this season fail to realize one thing. Skeletor has a HUGE man crush on Red Jesus and Romoception. Those three guys are gonna be in Dallas forever (forever-ever?) causing us cowboys fans pure grief!

  26. enrifer says: Nov 7, 2012 12:57 AM

    Romo has given this team hope and until they don’t get a capable replacement he should be the starter, because Kyle Orton is not the answer, he would just be like Bledsoe.

  27. mashoaf says: Nov 7, 2012 2:03 AM

    I’m going to be bold and say Jones fires Garrett after the season and then he throws a TON of money at Chip Kelly to be the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

  28. fmwarner says: Nov 7, 2012 2:23 AM

    I would say “yes” because I think he’s good and he deserves to stay. But if Garrett gets fired (which is a strong possibility, I’d say), a new coach may want to start over with a new QB. Romo might be out of town over politics.

  29. taintedlombardis says: Nov 7, 2012 2:27 AM

    I’m a total Cowboys hater, but all this Romo hate is unwarranted. Dude is a good quarterback. He is much better than Eli. It’s not his fault his team is chock full of dumb. Jerry Jones’ addiction to potential, character and smarts be damned, has created a roster full of miscreants and incompetents. Jerry, there was a reason Dez fell in the draft…you’re living it.

  30. vipod4ever says: Nov 7, 2012 8:32 AM

    If the cowboys are serious about a championship, they hire Payton, draft a top flight rb, and solidify their o line thru free agency. Yes, Romo says, and improves with the right play calls. That doesn’t negate getting drafting a high draft qb for the future.

  31. olewize1 says: Nov 7, 2012 10:20 AM

    nonody mentions our running backs… cowboys have not had a running back that STARTED in college since emmitt smith….

  32. Jeffrey Jenkins says: Nov 7, 2012 10:26 AM

    Giants Fan here:

    Romo is very much like Eli. They’re both streaky, they’re both capable of stretches of brilliant play but equally prone to bone-headed “what was he thinking?” play. (It’s this lack of consistency that puts them in a category just under Brady, Peyton, Brees and Rodgers.) The difference is that the Giants have a better team. A mostly better defense, a better coach, a better GM and better owners.
