07:24 AM ET 01.13 | For now, Tony Romo rests and recovers, but an operation may provide more questions than answers. Back problems don't just crop up overnight. In Romo's case, his back surgery earlier this month was his second in eight months. And while Owner Jones remains purposefully vague on the specifics of Romo's earlier "cyst removal" procedure, it's not normal medical procedure to incur a back injury on Sunday -- as the Cowboys claim -- and then be operated upon a few days later. Romo was bothered by the back all season, in my layman's opinion. I think the "cyst procedure" was more serious than Jones cares to admit. I think he managed the pain, numbness, whatever -- like all back patients -- with medication and rest, whenever he could get it.

Nobody believes what Jerry says anyway. Wouldn't surprise me to see Jerry trade with the Rams for the No. 2 pick and take Manziel.

And with those few words, they will now go 16-0.

You may be over-estimating it.

Agreed! Going to be very ugly at the Palace for a while.

I'm expecting at least 2 - 3 years of vacuum sounds coming out of Dallas before things get better.

Silly question -- does Romo have a big contract bonus/salary jump coming up in the next year or so? I'm just wondering if the Cowboys are acting like the Colts did with Manning.

And that's different from the past 2 - 3 years how?

I don't believe anything that comes out of Valley Ranch. If Romo had more serious back problems, he might want to start shopping for wheelchairs now while he can still walk.

I'm thinking the same thing. We may again see John Kitna in a Cowboy uniform.

Jerry, don't lose that number.

I wonder Otis if his back problems stem from playing golf?

I wouldn't mention Romo in a sentence with those guys though.
