Tony Romo has always had his share of critics, but now even some Romo supporters are starting to face the reality that it may be time for Dallas to bring in another quarterback who’s capable of taking over the reins of Dallas’ offense.  Romo will turn 33 in a couple of months, and the Cowboys haven’t drafted a quarterback since taking Stephen McGee (now with Texans) in 2009. Dallas Morning News Columnist Rick Gosselin thinks the team needs to come away from this year’s draft with a signal caller, and he had this response when asked about how high Dallas should take a quarterback in April: “I thought the Cowboys should have considered Kirk Cousins in the third round last April. The Redskins took him in the fourth round and he wound up winning his only start and coming off the bench for an injured RG III to rally Washington to two other victories. I’d definitely draft a quarterback this April — but I’d have been drafting quarterbacks every April, for that matter. You can never have enough young ones developing in the queue. Then you can either trade them or promote them. Drafting a quarterback is one of the best investments a team can make. I’d start looking in the fourth round and would hope to have one in the fold by the end of the sixth round.” Tony Romo probably has a couple of good years left, but Dallas struggled for most of the early 2000s after Troy Aikman’s retirement in large part because they failed to groom a young quarterback behind Aikman.  Given that history, I don’t think Cowboys fans should be upset if the team chooses to take a quarterback as early as day two (round 3) of April’s draft.
