Following another disappointing season, the Dallas Cowboys
should part ways with quarterback Tony Romo this offseason, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.
Everybody says they don't read the paper, they don't listen
to the radio or watch TV, but I don't think that's true. I think they do. When
everybody in Cowboys Nation is saying that Dallas has to get rid of Romo, I
think that carries over to the team.
I think it's time to trade Romo. You hate to do it, but
there's a time when a team has to just cut its losses.
If you look at the statistics, Romo wrapped up another successful
season with the Cowboys Sunday night. The quarterback totaled 4,903 passing
yards with 28 touchdowns, 19 interceptions and a QB rating of 90.5 on the year
and a completion percentage of 65.6%.
However, Romo once again failed to take care of business
when the lights were at their brightest. After throwing two first-half
interceptions against the Washington Redskins, Romo threw his third pick with
minutes to go in regulation, sealing Dallas’ fate.
While there aren’t many viable quarterback options out there
on the open market or in the draft, Brandt isn’t the only one calling for a
Romo trade. It will be interesting to see how many changes there will be in
Dallas this offseason following another disappointing campaign.
