Tony Romo's Days Are Numbered in the NFL (unfortunately)

    Romo went down with yet another back injury, this time in the preseason (v Seattle). Supposedly the injury isn't thought to be serious. Romo did leave the game and did not come back, though he tried to. Garrett just didn't want to risk it.

    Even still, the hit didn't appear to be too bad.

    Awkward for sure. But not something that should take a QB out of a game. I have no doubt in Tony Romo's mental toughness. A shame though that his body is failing him constantly. It doesn't look good for him to stay healthy for a full season any more. Luckily Dallas has Dak Prescott as an up and coming fill in. But he is no Romo. Hopefully this won't be Romo's last season. But all signs point to him being one more injury away from possibly throwin in the towel for good, for his own good.

    He's been the starter since the 2006 season. Strange to think he is possibly about to retire, but might be the best thing for the guy at this point in his career. He has to live in that body for the rest of his life, after football's well over.

    I'm so sick of Romo. I gave up on the Cowboys a long time ago. I was never really a fan, but I enjoy watching good QB's. Romo isn't one of them. Ever. Single. Year. something happens. It's either he gets hurt constantly, or when he isn't hurt, he chokes at the most important moments.

    It's must be super frustrating to be a Cowboy's fan. They would be a serious force if they could find a steadily good QB.

    Romo has a career passer rating of 97.1. That's rare air. He is a really good qb. It's just been the last 2 seasons or so where he can't seem to stay on the field.

    In probably his best game ever, Romo threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns against the Denver Broncos in 2013. Dallas scored 48 points in that game but lost to Peyton Manning also playing at his best, 51-48. It's a game for the highlight reels.

    Damn. So much for no big deal..


    Tony Romo breaks bone in back, out until mid-season

    This news actually shocked me. I believed Romo and company when he said all was okay. An MRI said otherwise though. A broken bone in his back? I do now wonder if he should ever play again. Likely he will this season. But, doesn't look like he will be on the field until at least after the Cowboys' bye week. So that means week 8.

    Hello Dak Prescott. You go from fourth round pick as a backup to starting gig overnight.

    With Romo out in Dallas and Trevor Siemian winning the starting QB job at Denver, there is speculation that Mark Sanchez will be picked up by either Dallas or Seattle, after certainly being released by the Broncos. There is no room on the Broncos bench for a high paid third string QB, and that's what Sanchez would be if he stays. The Broncos first round pick, Paxton Lynch will likely get the QB back-up role. So how does Mark Sanchez as a Cowboy sound to you? Or a Seahawk?

    That $4.5 mil of Sanchez is likely too high a contract for anyone to want. But add Minnesota to the list of teams in need of a QB. Bridgewater injured his knee in practice just today.

    Suppose Sanchez will just join this list of possibles out there for trade or free agent pick up.

    Denver Broncos cut Mark Sanchez and the Dallas Cowboys immediately picked him up.

    Cowboys are 5-1 now. This changes things pretty dramatically for Romo's return. I listen to a lot of local radio here in Dallas, and it's interesting to track the mindset of fans and radio guy's thoughts on if Romo should get his job back once healthy, the more and more Dallas wins. 3-1, no one thought Romo would lose his gig. 4-1, perhaps something to consider. 5-1, and you go and beat Green Bay, in Lambeau.. hold on now.

    Now the consensus thinking is that Romo is still a better QB overall. But to disrupt the momentum the Cowboys have by making the change.. most people seem to think that's a bad idea. And I have to agree at this point. It's been crazy to watch, and I didn't think I would be on the Dak over Romo bandwagon. But now I sorta am. I wonder though if and when the winning streak ends, how quickly everyone will again change their minds.
