Despite his three interceptions in a must-win game on Sunday night against Washington, the Dallas Cowboys still want to sign quarterback Tony Romo to a long-term contract extension. “We have a great belief of Tony Romo as our quarterback,” said head coach Jason Garrett, via the Dallas Morning News.  “Tony has won a lot of big games for us, too, to get us to the point where we can play for the division in Week 17 in consecutive years. We all know that we want to take the next step, and Tony is going to be a big part of that going forward.” Dallas has finished the last two seasons with 8-8 records. The last time the Cowboys made the playoffs was the 2009 season. “We’re excited about him being our quarterback.” said Garrett. Romo is under contract for next season and clearly has the support of the Cowboys head coach. Then again, the quarterback market is extremely thin this year and unlike in previous years there is no can’t miss prospect.

  • I cannot believe that want to sign him to a long term deal. He has proved time and time again that he can't handle the pressure. The Cowboys are never going to do anything as long as he is the QB. There a is a reason he wasn't drafted out of college he isn't any good.This is crazy.Fans get ready for more years of poor play. Get rid of Romo Garrett and the GM.
  • They should sign Linda Lovelace. At least she doesn't choke on the big ones!
  • Think about all of the QBs that have been drafted since he has been in the league and how many have won SBs. It is time to move on.
  • The smartest thing that the Cowboys can do is not sign Tony Romo to a long term contract. The smartest thing that Tony Romo can do is cut is losses and leave the Dallas organization. He does not have the support of the fans, and that puts undo pressure on him to perform. The next smartest thing that the Cowboy organization can do is to cut Jason Garrett free and tell Jerry Jones to crawl into his sky box and just watch the games, and sign the checks. It is time to clean house in that organization and replace the GM, the head coach, and the ineffective quarterback. Do that, and get the first and second string players well, and the Cowboy just might have a shot at a championship in a couple of years, but without the necessary cuts, the Dallas Cowboys are not going to any Super Bowl in the future unless they have already purchased their tickets.
  • This is unbelievable and further proof that the whole Cowboy organization is an assemblage of flaming idiots. Romo wasn't even drafted since he came from a small college that no one except folks in a lonely corner of Wisconsin even knew of his existence. And now he will probably be gifted with another pile of money to stack on top of the wasted funds already paid. He must be laughing all the way to the bank. I don't know how he keeps a straight face in interviews. To coin one of his favorite interview words, "Hopefully" he will slink back to Wisconsin after he retires and we will try to forget he ever existed as quickly as possible.
    I'll close my critical review with the wisdom quoted by Mr. Garrett, our esteemed head coach from another no-name football powerhouse (Princeton), "“We’re excited about him being our quarterback.” said Garrett.
  • Hmmmm, if I'm not mistaken, Mr. Romo went to Eastern Illinois during his college days.
