Now that the Cowboys have paid him a boatload of cash it appears that they may finally be ready to do what they maybe should have done a long time ago.
They are going all in with Romo.
If it sounds like a gamble it is because it is. Romo has collected an impressive stat sheet over the years, but that hasn't translated to wins too often, and certainly not post season wins. That didn't stop Jerry Jones from paying him a $100+ million (with $55 mil guaranteed), and it appears like it will not stop him from having him sit in on strategy sessions now either.
Source says Tony Romo will be have influence in game plans, personneland play-calling. He will game plan with coaches Mondays and Tuesdays

My first thought is probably not too unlike some of y'all--oh boy. However, after doing a little digging this ma not be such a crazy idea after all.
Peyton Manning and Tom Brady do it. There are likely others that do as well, but sin...
