Looks like the Tony Romo era is over in Dallas

Not only is he not the starter anymore, I anticipate he will be on another team next year. This includes possibilities such as the Broncos since Elway has no problem taking a chance on injured players such as Manning. I feel he could have gone further in the past if the Cowboys defense was better. The NFL truly stands for "Not For Long".

[www.espn.com]

RISCO, Texas -- For nearly five minutes, an emotional Tony Romo addressed his past, present and future as Dallas Cowboys quarterback almost three months after suffering a compression fracture in his back that has kept him out of the first nine games of the regular season.

Romo read a prepared statement that lasted just under five minutes, and did not take any questions.

Romo accepted that he will be Dak Prescott's backup when he returns this week against the Baltimore Ravens.

"He's earned the right to be our quarterback," Romo said. "As hard as that is for me to say, he's earned that right. He's guided our team to an 8-1 record and that's hard to do. If you think for a second that I don't want to be out there, then you've probably never felt the pure ecstasy of competing and winning. That hasn't left me. In fact it may burn more now than ever."

He's been a great leader for Dallas, but he is 36 years old, and very prone to injuries. I'm glad we have him as our back up for the rest of the the season, because you never know what is going to happen to your starting QB. I didn't think a rookie QB could play smart, but Dak has done just that.

This warranted a press conference?

He should go to Cleveland-anything would help the Browns now!

Starting QB is Dallas is a pretty big deal especially when one of the team's all timer in many categories is passing the torch.

I was hoping he could have one good run this season. One of the biggest things that would have helped him is Elliott's running game. That has also helped the defense stay off the field. When Murray was chewing up time two seasons ago, Cowboys went 14-2. With Dak on a rookie contract, perhaps the Cowboys can spend a bit more on some defense including a pass rusher.

I don't care at all about the Cowboys, or any other team in the No Fun League, but it's great to see a good guy like Dak Prescott do so well.

I'll still wear my Romo jersey on Sundays.

While I always want the Cowboys to win a Super Bowl, it would be a little bittersweet for Romo this year. He'd have the ring, but....

Yeah, it would feel kind of strange. We'll have to see how things unfold.

I'm just sorry that the noxious Cowboys got the steal of the draft.

Romo should quit while he can still walk, I think. He may be looking at a fairly pain-filled future while still in this 30s.

I like the Colin "jerk" much more since he took a stand. Glorification of the military doesn't need to be part of every sporting event.

I feel sad that the Cleveland team keeps coming up. That would just be hell for him because that offensive line allows QBs to get injured like no other.

I've seen maybe 10 games with Romo. In none of them did he do well, and in two he got hurt. I've never understood why he was their starter this long.

Right? For his... what? first three?... seasons he was the reason for the Cowboys losing in the post-season!



It is what it is.

Something similar could be said for Hasselbeck, but he never received even close to the amount of hype as Romo.
