Last year, I felt that Romo would not be a successful Dallas Cowboy's quarterback and this is still in question because his career is still young.  I thought that he wouldn't be a great quarterback because he didn't get what it meant to be a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.  This was evident through his comments in post-game interviews or conferences, decison to go to Mexico, commitment to the off-season and TMZ appearances that overshadowed his play.  His play was also in questoin with his inability to take care of the football.  Romo has corrected a lot of his flaws by learning what to say to the press and by having only 9 interceptions (3 against the Giants) and 0 fumbles throughout the regular season.  Listening to what he said after the Vikings loss tells me that he has changed and become a leader by pointing out that he needs to improve and teammates that need to improve in order to make it to the big game and to continue to improve after winning it all.  I can tell that Romo has been listening to Troy Aikman and taking his advise to heart, but change always comes from within.  So kudos to Romo for taking responsibility for himself.

 Phillips has also demonstrated that he can lead a team to win in the playoffs.  He didn't waivere nor make apologies for his coaching style.  So he is a coach that I wish to do well for different reasons.  First, he is a good guy.  Second, he treats his players with respect and players play for him.  Third, he is a great defensive guru.  Finally, he is one of the directors of the best football clinic (San Angelo Football Clinic) that there is. 

Jerry Jones has also changed.  He released Terrell Owens, PacMan, and Tank Johnson.  Jones also has his son, Stephen to help him make these decisions and as long as his son is there the Cowboys will continue to take large steps in the right direction.  No more saving or rehabing projects by getting these types of players.  Instead we will see great players who are also great lockerroom guys like Keith Brooking.  Expect the Boys to be Super Bowl contenders for years to come.
