NFL  > General NFL  > Romo extension, trade bait or drastic mistake?
March 29, 2013, 07:34 PM
OK did JJ sign Romo to trade him? doubtful.

Did JJ sign Romo to drive all the 'Boys' fanbase nuts? doubtful (but it has none the less).

Did JJ sign Romo because he thinks he can win and is the best solution, probable.

I'll take the later, the 'Boys' just NEED to keep him scrambling every 3rd and 4th quarter this upcoming season, I think you win 11 or 12 games.
Don't start scrambling in the last 5 minutes and shoot for a miracle 17 point comeback, start him scrambling immediately after halftime or the whole darn game.

DB could emerge as a great WR if he can keep his head on straight (time will tell), remember if not for a finger tip out of bounds on a miracle play you would have made the playoffs, only a few WR could make that catch.

JJ if you really want to win all you need to remember is; there are some good OL in the draft, go after a couple or 3! That and let your coaches do what you pay them to do and eat your gourmet food in the press box and keep your mouth shut.

This signing was a no brainer. Romo ranks among the top 10 QB's in the NFL and is still in the prime of his career. If the Cowboys can upgrade the OL, I believe this team can make a run at the SB.

Romo was the recipient of good timing and luck...With Dallas signing him to a long term contract, they can reallocate the 16 Million dollar cap hit for this years salary cap and spread it out over the length of the extension, and now have space for this season salary cap to now start singing free agents and get better.

Exactly right BGD.

Yep. He's getting the Brady treatment in reverse. Brady restructured to help the team, but in reality he ended up with more money. Romo extended his contract for more money but the real result is to help the team. Funny.

They are talking about last year only, so rookie or 10 year vet, it makes no difference.

That said, some of those qb's were not top 10 or top 12 last year.

Wilson and RG III were rookies along with Andrew Luck. Kaepernick was drafted in 2011.

Is there any particular way in which you are judging ?
Brees, Stafford, Romo, were the top 3 in the league in passing yardage, yet none of them made the playoffs.
Followed by;Brady, Ryan, P. Manning, Luck, Rodgers, they all made the playoffs but none of them made it to the Super Bowl.
the final 2 in the top 10 in yardage were Freeman and Palmer.

Of the 3 rookie QB's that made the playoffs I'd say that Luck had the better year because the Colts were solely dependent on his throwing. Whereas RG3 and Wilson did OK but had good running games that supported their offenses.

Of the top 3 QB's I expect Brees and Stafford to lead their team to more wins than Romo.
