Despite his constant late season failures, head coach Jason Garrett said today Tony Romo has a bright future with the Cowboys (Credit: AP Photo)
After another disappointing end to the Dallas Cowboys season, some began to wonder if Tony Romo’s days leading the team were numbered. Romo has been inconsistent time and time again when it comes to late season or playoff games. During Sunday night’s loss to the Redskins, Romo threw three interceptions, including one late in the game that sealed the victory for Washington.
Despite his poor play, head coach Jason Garrett said today that Romo has a bright future with the team.
“We have a great belief of Tony Romo as our quarterback,” Garrett said. “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. You have to understand the whole body of work. You have to understand that winning is how we get evaluated. He’s done a lot of great things for this franchise. We’re excited about him being our quarterback.”
It might be time for the Cowboys to start planning for their future without Romo. Even if he is the team’s starting quarterback next season, he will be thirty-three years old next season. While quarterbacks like Manning and Brady can possibly play into their 40s, Romo most likely cannot.
The Cowboys should be grooming a quarterback to take over for Romo soon.

Tony Romo had a great December until it was time to change his narrative. Three picks when he could have finally made something else of himself than a choking clownfraud. A streak of wins that would have at last instilled him in the minds of fans as something other than an abject failure when it counts. But is was all for naught.
Good night, sweet price of Derpmania.

As we sift through the rubble of another late-season failure, we are constantly reminded that the defense was hit with circumstances that nearly made their tasks impossible by the end of the year. The inside linebackers were different, the safeties were different, and the defensive line was different than what left training camp. Only the 2 outside linebackers and the 2 starting...
