11:01 AM ET 05.26 | Jerry Jones made Tony Romo the latest member of the $100-million quarterback club this off-season, then almost immediately started talking about his desire to see Romo get more involved in the Cowboys' offensive scheming. But Jones says his call for more from Romo has less to do with his quarterback's commitment and more to do with trying to get the most out of his massive investment. "When you give somebody $100 million, then you would like to get every ounce of anything they can bring to the table to win a football game," Jones told NFL Network's Albert Breer last week. "[Romo is] outstanding on offensive concepts and he's got a vantage point that very few people have, so anything that he can bring the concept to the field has got to make us a better football team. I think it will."

Jerry Jones expects Tony Romo to give all after $100M contract

LOL - What a maroon.

Over the years I cut Tony a lot of slack. I thought his team let him down a lot and the problems around him were not all his. This year he had the weapons and this year with everything on the line he failed. Now I'm convinced your only going to get so many wins with this horse. He will never win the triple crown, or league MVP. He was above average in college and remains that today.

I can see the big contracts Flacco and other successful QBs have gotten the past few years. But, Romo gets the payday and is now expected to start winning playoff games? Man, I'm glad I'm not a Cowboys fan; it's almost too painful to watch.

Somewhere along the line Tony should start having to pay his own offensive line.

Too much money for to little results! Typical Jerry Jones throwing his money around foolishly.

Far as the other Seahawks fans and I are concerned he sure can.

All=1playoff win over the next 10 years?

Is he gonna get him a team to give all to.

Jerry is delusional. I sort of feel bad for Romo.

I don't like seeing the Cowboys flounder under JJ.

As a Giants fan I enjoy it.
