Id be interested in reading that from a credible source. But that is the first I have heard of it.

Romo is under contract until 2014, so anything about "not renewing his contract"
is highly suspect.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

According to Don Banks' first mock draft on SI.com he has the 'Skins taking Cam Newton as the second qb in the draft, behind the Bills taking Gabbert. And that's while Von Miller is still on the board. Idk bout you guys but I'd much rather have Miller than Newton. And if Shanny did go qb at #10, I think he'd be more inclined to take Locker than Newton. I've heard mixed reviews about Locker at Senior Bowl practices though, I've heard some reports say he's looked decent and other reports say he looked inaccurate and hasn't really improved his stock.

Only if you agree to trade a 3rd round pick for Haynesworth once you are coach.

When Big Ben was drafted, he was considered the qb most ready to start right away. Cam Newton is nowhere near that. The only comparison that makes sense is in athletic ability and size, that's where it ends.

Well with recent changes in Tennessee...I've lost a string. And that's all I'm going to say about that

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

JC was a "winner" in college too, I'm just sayin'

Apparently there's some concern of Newton's "helicopter Dad"

He needs to do his kid a huge favor and stay the eff away from anything Cam does. That's what he has an agent for now. A DC based firm... No connection. Damn I hope not anyway... lol

The Newton Dad thing sounds like a Vince Howard from Friday Night Lights situation

Absolutely correct.

JaMarcus Russell, Colt Brennan, Heath Shuler, Tim Couch, etc. etc., were all "winners" in college.

The "he's a winner" rationale is not a good one.

Math lesson for today kids.

2 + 2 = 4

College + Winner ≠ NFL Winner

Gimme a break. Your connections are so deep that you were able to fix the World Cup so that your favorite team won.

FIFA: Boss, who should win the Cup?
SmootSmack: Make sure that Spain wins and that David Villa looks like a star!
FIFA: Anything you say, boss.

I never said it was credible just that there was a rumor out there. I think Dallas would be crazy to trade Romo, but if they are finally tired of his play I could see them doing it. Heck the Titans fired Fischer which is a supprise to me.

and yes it's bleacher report. Like I said I never said it was credible. But this is partly where it is all coming from and why I said even Dallas might be in line to draft a QB ahead of us.

People keep saying we should draft Locker but with so many teams ahead of us possibly needing a QB and if Locker is labled the best of the bunch what makes people think he will be there at #10? I'll agree anything is possible especially with Lockers stock supposedly dropping due to accuracy issues.

Thanks for the links, makes for entertaining reading. Like Jurassic Park, interesting concept, but after that......meh.

The drafting of Steven McGee a few years ago is the key though. Every team would love to have the luxury of having an Aaron Rodgers. In other words, a first round draft pick QB that you can afford to have wait and train in the wings for 3 years because you have a future hall of famer in place.

Thats just not the case though. For the most part, first rounders are expected to start these days and that luxury just is not there.

So Dallas drafted Steven McGee a few years ago, let him sit back on the depth chart, learn and develop. And if he develops correctly, at the end of Romo's contract maybe he gets the nod. He's looked good so far, but if it does not work out, there are still options open.

Romo himself sat behind Testeverde and Bledsoe for 3 years before he got his first start.
