Re: Cowboys Sign Romo to $108M Deal: Skins Fans Rejoice!

But now that the conversation has been steered towards 'meaningful', I really think that paying for Romo's age 34-39 seasons is foolish. It's basically the Alex Rodriguez contract, given the current financial state of the Cowboys. It's not that Romo isn't worth it: his market value is his market value. But why the Cowboys waited to this point to give their quarterback a market value contract makes no sense.

The decline rate among non-elite quarterbacks is pretty sharp starting right around the age Romo is now. Steve McNair was a co-MVP of this league in 2003, but he was completely toast as a player by age 34: the point which this Romo contract starts(!). Trent Green was awesome through age 35, then completely done. Kurt Warner appeared for all the world to be toast by age 35. Really, of all Romo's closest comparables, Favre had MVP seasons in his late thirties and early fourties, and no one else was even remotely successful beyond what amounts to the second year of this extension, or 2015.

If Romo makes this contract looks good, he's a no question first ballot hall of famer. But that's such a tall task. I think the more likely outcome is the Cowboys are the Cowboys for two more seasons (7-9, 8-8), and then they tear down and rebuild while Romo quarterbacks a losing team. He might never appear in the playoffs over the course of the deal, unless they pull a Favre 2007 type rebuild. That's best case scenario for the Cowboys right now.

Re: Cowboys Sign Romo to $108M Deal: Skins Fans Rejoice!

so is that, "I was wrong, but not because of anything anyone else said, I'm just so smart that I outsmarted myself when I said it was a good idea yesterday."

it's a bad deal for the roids. romo should be happy, cause no one else was going to pay him that much... meaning that it's not really his market value.

that's too much guaranteed money for a guy that's above average but just not notable in any way.

I think he's better then above average, what kills him is the critical errors. To be fair, people forget alot of Dan Marino's brainfarts.

Re: Cowboys Sign Romo to $108M Deal: Skins Fans Rejoice!

Saw this on a crawl this weekend and just laughed...I love Jerry Jones' stupidity. When he puts his loyalty into one of "his" guys, he never lets go, even when it harms the franchise.

The value of the deal was a stupid decision. The length of the deal was a stupid decision. The name on the deal was a stupid decision. How many chances can one man get after failing so many times. Dallas is nowhere near a Super Bowl as long as Romo is their QB.

We thank you, Jerry. Your team cannot afford this, in several ways.

Is it because the Cowboys pre-game meal contains a lot of butter? How is a change of address going to help him with simple tasks like handling snaps? I've never seem any QB fumble so many snaps. Don't even blame his center, some of the snaps in shotgun have hit Romo right in the face. If the same mistake keeps happening over and over, there's a point where you have to blame the leader. I've also seen Romo many times start retreating 30+ yards backwards when pressured. I remember seeing it actually result in a positive play ONCE...against us unfortunately.

I doubt this deal will be anywhere near a bar setter when Griffin's contract comes due. Look at ARodgers up coming deal, and then Luck, Griffin, and Wilson all become UFA's in 2016 according to spotrac.com will be signing at the same time.

By 2016 Romo will have won zero Super Bowls whereas Gryphon will have won two. So apples to oranges.

And as long as Jerry Jones is their GM, which I hope is forever.

I reacted to the Eli Manning extension yesterday, apparently.

Reading is fundamental.

Re: Cowboys Sign Romo to $108M Deal: Skins Fans Rejoice!

It's definitely worth it to the Dallas Cowboys to keep Tony Romo. Tony is clearly the best quarterback the franchise has had since Troy Aikman, and I think at this point, Romo has broken some of Troy's records. The Cowboys have been on the better side of .500 since Romo has been starter, netting two NFC East titles and three playoff berths. The Cowboys came close to another division title this past year as well as another playoff berth, so Jones still feels Tony can lead the Cowboys to potential greatness.

What we all see is a quarterback who probably at this age, has reached his performance ceiling - at least us being Redskins fans hopes this is true. Even still, if that IS the case, Romo could very easily remain at that ceiling for another two maybe three years. Which means, a potential for the division crown and playoffs for the next two to three years. What will hurt those chances, of course, is major injury and losing key players. The latter of the two being the most likely, since it looks like the Cowboys could be in cap Hell pretty soon.

So, with that said, is Tony Romo worth it this much to the Cowboys? Apparently yes. They are willing to ride it out with Romo and hope that 2013 is a special season for the Dallas Cowboys, because they realize that this team is going to start falling apart after 2013 unless they draft greatly.

Heard that. He'll definitely be the GM for as long as he's standing. His ego won't allow anything else.

That would be amazing. Unlike ESPN, the NY media would destroy him after every game he blew and gaffe he makes on and off the field.
