  • Jerry Jones is completely destroying that team...not that I am complaining. Can not believe they paid that much for Romo. I know it's for 6 years, but damn!

    $55 million guaranteed

  • While everyone else is wondering if the cowboys should go in a different direction, Jerry Jones is handing out 55 million in guaruntees.

    It's official. Jerry has fully morphed into Al Davis.

  • This proves the fact that the Flynn contract that would hit a team with $5.25 million for next year is completely absurd and that amount of money would make them non-competible which is why he isn't worth anything on the open market...........

  • Funny I'm not that much of Romo basher. I think he does a pretty good job. Like Greene running the ball he has the reputation of making a mistake at key times. Fortunately his biggest one against the Seahawks at Seahawk Stadium.

    But they have taken a competitive team away from him a chunk at a time for the last several years making it pretty hard for them to compete.

    Discussing the Boys with my old store manager boss last year I mentioned the game all the fans blamed him for losing when he threw the ball 46 times. How can it be all his fault if he has to throw that much?

    Spend some of that money on the team.

  • I like Romo. That said:

    Al Davis -> Carson Palmer; Jerry Jones -> Tony Romo

    Everyone knew that Oakland overpaid for Palmer, and the reason was clear- Al Davis knew he didn't have long to live and wanted to make one last push for a title. Jerry Jones is no spring chicken himself, and if he wants to build a new contending team from scratch he needed to start yesterday. I never blamed Romo in the past for all the 8-8 or 9-7 seasons, but pretty soon, they'll be having mediocre seasons because of Romo instead of having them despite him.

    Here is what I hate about this deal. Tony Romo would have been a free agent next year. He would have hit the market a month before his 34th birthday. What's the going rate for a 34 year old QB, especially one with Romo's image problem? I'm thinking if Romo had been available in open free agency, you're looking at Kolb money, max.

    Instead, they pay him close to Manning/Brees money, on a deal that keeps him under contract until he's almost 40. The soonest they can get out of the contract without eating dead money is 2019, Romo's age 38 season.

    I've defended Jerry Jones many times, but this was a big mistake. At the very worst, you could lose Romo next offseason and still draft a QB like Manziel, Bridgewater, or Boyd in the 2014 draft by moving up. This was not only a poor long term decision, but a poor use of resources, IMO. If you are willing to give Romo that kind of money, you could at least wait til UFA because no other team would offer money like that.

  • Jones' biggest mistake wasn't the deal itself, but for painting himself into a corner and making it necessary:

    John Clayton
    @ClaytonESPN: The Cowboys had to do a Tony Romo deal. They had $24,000 of cap room. Plus, they needed to secure their starting QB. Much needed.


    And with the way Romo's old contract was structured he couldn't be franchised next year. Romo had all the leverage.

  • Hey Kip they could lose Romo next year and not have a decent backup for him and no money to get one. I wouldn't wish bad on Romo but that would really chap the 'Boys chances.

    Romo's been lucky but if he gets hurt during that time they are in a huge world of hurt.

    Not that that's a bad thing.

    This is pure, delicious Shadenfreude, and I'm lovin' every minute of it. The irony of it is this is one thing both Seahawks fans and 49ers fans are equally ROFL'ing about.

    I'd speculate Romo has to have incriminating picture of Jerrah to pull this contract off, but urp, seriously, ughhhhh... gah! :pukeface:

  • Romo is a great QB. People have ridiculous hate for him because he hasn't won any SBs as a Cowboys QB and the spotlight is on him 24/7. I also think he has just been WAY overpaid. Should have been guaranteed a lot less. Looking at the market, and the future, Jerry made the right choice keeping him around. The money was the only problem.

    He's won one playoff game, and is the biggest choke artist this planet has ever seen, "great" isn't a word i'd use to describe Romo.

  • Hard to win it all when the team around you is terrible. He wasn't scoring all those points against his own team. He had a few too many turnovers, but that is him putting too much pressure on himself because his defense won't do their job. Needs a healthy run game, too.

    Romo is not a great QB, he is a great FANTASY FOOTBALL QB! And he has had some good teams around him. Romo is a choke artist plain and simple, his playoff record tells he whole story!

  • I've been watching football since 1964 and I cannot remember a bigger choke artist in all those years than Tony Romo. Guy simply finds a way to lose when the team needs a win the most......usually by throwing a horrific int. Jerruh Jones has indeed become Al Davis. I love every second of this cuz I despise the Cowpatties so very, very much and this guarantees they will likely not win a playoff game in the next several years, and likely not even get to the playoffs.

  • The Cowboys remind me a lot of the Chargers...blessed with some very good talent at multiple positions but never capitalizing on it and losing that very talent to age or free agency along the way. A little dysfunctional and lackadaisical when it comes to going out on the field and performing.

    Chargers are my (distant) 2nd favorite team and I hope this changes now that A.J. Smith is gone. But yeah, in the last 10 years I agree with your assessment of the franchise.
