I am a huge Cowboys fan and have been since I was 7 years old and I first watched Roger and those guys. My best friend's brother was a Cowboys fan
and he taught us the game. I taught my little brother and my son to be Cowboys fans and it is nice to see them doing so well right now. They had a
good year a couple of years ago that didn't end to well because of that CALL about Dez's catch, but it wasn't meant to be. This year has much to be
excited about with DEZAK running the show and all the pieces seem to be clicking.
There is this rush to enshrine Dak in the HOF and put Tony out to pasture and that would be a HUGE mistake. I included an article from ESPN about Dak
and he has some awesome stats. I just think people should take a deep breath and enjoy it while it last, but let him do it for several years at least
before we anoint him the next Great QB. I have outlined a few points below.
It takes a team operating on all cylinders to make a run at the SB and right now this Cowboys team is in the top 2 teams that have it going on in all
phases, this is the closest they have been to the last SB team they had. Some have even speculated that they could trade Tony, NO, they can not as I
point out below.
Dak Prescott Is Already Playing About As
Well As Tony Romo Ever Has
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is sailing into uncharted territory for a rookie passer. Prescott shined again in Dallas’s 35-10 rout of
the Cleveland Browns Sunday, completing 21 of 27 passes for 247 yards (9.1 per attempt), three touchdowns and zero interceptions. According to
ESPN’s Total Quarterback Rating (QBR), Prescott had the NFL’s top quarterbacking performance of the week,1 the second time in nine weeks he’s
claimed top honors. All told, Prescott’s first eight starts are easily the best of any rookie signal-caller since ESPN began tracking QBR in
This is not the same NFL and Romo has a strong allegiance to the Cowboys. Jerry will not ever trade him, NEVER. Romo has very little ego in this
situation, he is not moping, he is not acting like he is the only option, he will do what is asked of him and so will Dak.
I am tired of all the Romo bashing though, this guy has not always had the best team around him and when he plays they win 70% of the time even with a
You can not pin all the misfortunes on him, people take one time in Seattle when he had a miscue on a field goal and make him out to be this big
choker, but he got them in position to kick that in the first place.
Romo is right where he should be as the veteran leader needed to show a younger QB how to handle the game situations an he has done just that. He
still is not completely recovered and they can take their time, but who would you rather have him or Sanchez as the backup?
Yeah, Romo has not won a SB yet, but that does not mean he is not capable, he is the 3rd best QB in the league when he is healthy and he has come back
from injury over and over again because he loves the game.
Dak has proven he can handle different situations and that is what the Cowboys needed, a young QB who could manage the game and be humble about his
circumstances. He as faced adversity and overcome, but he is a rookie. If the brass were smart they would keep him as the starter, until he falters or
ride him to the promise land, but having Romo is a benefit other rookies do not have and that is something else that can not be messed with.
The team players respect Romo and will fight just as hard for him as they have for Dak. Dak has a lot of help with that OL and Zeke running for
daylight and Witten being the tough SOB and the D is playing better each week and Bryant coming back strong and big plays on ST.
The last time the Cowboys won SB's they had these elements in place:
A top defense
A top receiver
A top running back
A top offensive line
A top QB
A top special teams
A top FB
A top TE
A gutsy coach
A capable backup QB
So I say to all of you with sincerity, GO FLY A KITE because you obviously do not have a clue what the hell you are talking about!
