According to the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys' desire to lock-up Tony Romo long-term "hasn't changed" despite his disastrous performance in Sunday's season-ending loss.
Romo is entering the final season of the six-year, $67.4 million extension he signed in October 2007. It's unclear what the basis for the Morning News' report is, but coach Jason Garrett gave his quarterback an emphatic vote of confidence on Monday. "We have a great belief of Tony Romo as our quarterback," Garrett said. "We all know that we want to take the next step, and Tony is going to be a big part of that going forward." Romo's failures under the bright lights are well documented, while he's just three months shy of his 33rd birthday. There's no doubt the Cowboys would have a whale of a time finding an upgrade, however.
I agree Garrett is a big part of the problem. He was an innovative OC but as a HC his biggest asset for Jerry Jones is that he wont push back on Jerry Jones. No real top level coach will go to Dallas as long as Jerruh keeps his sticky little fingers in the business of football.
Oh great....Another mediocre, almost made it, .500 season or worse. Guess I should plan my vacation for the first of Jan nxt year. Wont be anything to watch on tv anyway
you know who should be fired... jason garrett, that guys poor clock management has cost the cowboys 4 wins in the last 2 seasons
Yep. The owner is the root of all of their issues including his poor choices for coaches. As for keeping romo, I love it. Keep him and no one would need to worry about facing him in elimination games.
