Not going to happen, of course. Not now, not next year, maybe never at all. But, there are a lot of Romo haters out there (even some Cowboy fans) that think that the 'Boys could do better. I'm not going to put a bunch of statistics here, but just to give you some food for thought.
IF (and "if" is the biggest 2 letter word in the world) Jerry Jones were to cut Romo, and send him packing, how long do you guys and gals think it would take before another team had him on their roster? It only took 2 days for T.O. to get signed.
Now, stop and think about who the "Boys" have had between Aikman and Romo. We had Quincy Carter, who couldn't leave the weed alone, and still can't, and didn't impress me much anyway, 2 Chads who played baseball, or tried to anyway, and couldn't, and simply couldn't play football either. Then Vinny Testerverde, who only was 2nd in longevity to George Blanda in years played, and most of his passes couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Drew Bledsoe was serviceable, for awhile, but had stone legs, and his arm started turning to stone as well. Medusa Effect? Although he was signed as a back up, Brad "Noodle Arm" Johnson was even worse than Testerverde. Granted, he didn't play but those 3 games last year, but I'm sure he practiced some anyway. Brooks Bollinger was signed, but he is now on his 3rd team in 6 years (as of last year). Am I missing anyone?
When Staubach was signed, he took a back seat to Craig Morton. He also had to finish his time in the Navy before playing a down in football, so he was, if I remember correctly, a 27 yr old rookie when he joined the Cowboys. He finally upseated Morton, but it took some time. Terry Bradshaw of the Steelers was almost run out of town. People thought he was some dumb hick who couldn't throw his way out of a wet paper bag. He had to compete with Joe Gilliam as well, and that also took some time. We now know that Bradshaw owns 4 SB rings, while Staubach has 2, although it could have been the other way around.
So, we finally get a QB who shows some promise, and leads this team to a 13-3 season. Not to mention how well he did after replacing Bledsoe. This guy was undrafted, and came from nowhere. How often do you find that? He has outplayed several high draft pick QB's in the league already, not to mention breaking a lot of team records in the process. So what if last year wasn't as expected? Injuries had a lot to do with that. Of course, injuries aren't an "excuse" as they say, but you saw what happened when Romo got hurt, and then continued to get hurt afterwards. Can any of you haters out there do better? I didn't think so.
If the offensive line will do as they did in 07, then Romo can, and will tear a defense apart. He's already done it. He's done some fantastic things, such as the win over Buffalo, when they should have lost, and almost beat New England. The Rams game, where he ran 31 yards, I think it was, for a 4 yard gain and a first down? The man can play ball. But, he CANNOT do it by himself. This is a team oriented game.
Romo is the best thing for this team since Aikman. No ifs, ands or buts. He is, after all, only human, so he will make mistakes. Tell me, what team don't make mistakes? New England? Sorry, they lost to the Giants in the only game that really mattered.
You can also look at it this way...if Romo was your son, would you not support him in his growing? Of course you would. He is "our son" in a matter of speaking, because he is part of our team, and this is directed at all those Cowboy fans who think Romo should be replaced.
I know....I know......someone is going to come and say that Romo is like Favre.......a gunslinger, and throws too many picks, and fumbles a lot. But, in my opinion, he's the best we've had since Aikman. But, I don't want any more Carters, Chads, or Johnsons. Sometimes fans can be like that man who had no shoes. Always complaining about it, until one day he met another man, who had no feet. We do have shoes......some teams have no feet.
So, should Jerry Jones cut Romo?
