Cowboys Should Think Twice About a New Deal for Romo

While the Dallas Cowboys get set for what should be a very interesting 2007 season, one of the big question marks right now is if the team should indeed give new starting QB Tony Romo and long term deal. The Cowboys giving Romo a long term deal is a decision that may shape the future of the franchise. If Romo is the quarterback that he was when the was bringing the Cowboys back from the dead last season, or is the QB who down the stretch was way off as the Cowboys lost three of four to lose the division. Then of course there was the nightmare in Seattle, when Romo dropped a snap that could have put the Cowboys ahead late in the game. The concern has to come with what Romo did in December, with the division on the line. He threw six TD’s in the month, compared to 8 interceptions. His completion percentage was just 60 percent, and his QB rating was 77.1.

This may have been the true Romo with how he played in those December games. After all, there was a reason why he sat the bench as long as he did, and coaches were leery of putting him in live action. Sure, he had his moments in October and November, when he and the Cowboys won five of six, but overall, this is a decision that the team had better not make lightly. If you commit to Romo, and he ends up being that December QB you are in trouble. Tread lightly Dallas, this is a decision that could easily shape the next 2-3 years of Cowboys football.
