Default Re: PFT HOU among teams should be interestd in Romo (extended by Cowboys)

Comparing Tony Romo's New Deal To Matt Schaub's: The QB Contract Conundrum
Quote:
...
Obviously, both teams hope that these deals work out and their quarterback takes them to the promised land, and whichever team is able to do that, practically by definition when it comes to the quarterback position, got the better deal with their guy.

But looking at worst-case scenarios, which team is potentially more saddled with a guy they flat out overpaid? Well, considering the following:

1. Their cap hits in Year 1 (2013) are about the same, and...

2. In Years 2 and 3 of the deals (2014 and 2015), Schaub counts about $7 million and $8 million less respectively in those seasons than Romo against the cap, and...

3. The Texans can eject on the Schaub Experience after this coming season for a whopping $30 million less in "dead money" against the cap than Dallas, and less than it will cost the Cowboys to eject on Romo in 2016, let alone 2014...

Well -- let's say it together, Texan fans -- "WELL, AT LEAST WE'RE NOT DALLAS!"
