Well yeah, if you go back in time, he was a great coordinator, but it has been 6-7 years since he had a good NFL defense. He was terrible during this last college stint with Tennessee and USC. Whether or not he can bounce back from those down years is yet to be seen, but I doubt he's going to come in and fix a dysfunctional team in one offseason. It happens sometimes, but not often, and I would think it's even less likely with Jerry Jones at the helm making picks. Sure he should be better than Rob Ryan, but that's not saying much. I seriously doubt this Dallas defense is top 10 in points against next year.

Default Re: PFT HOU among teams interestd in Romo

I like Romo, I don't like Schaub. But I think the move would be more lateral..... & a waste of our time. Can Romo win a Super Bowl? Sure, with the right team. Maybe with the team we have now. Can Schaub win a Super Bowl? Sure, with the right team. Maybe with the team we have right now.

Romo made Laurent Robinson look like a better receiver & I'm starting to think he makes Austin look better as well. He's had a revolving door at RB, RT, Center, both guards... but the man is talented & he can (& will) throw the ball.

I think we are a more complete team than what the Cowboys fielded in 2012, but our lack of depth showed in December, when our guru couldn't overcome our weaknesses. There's about a half a dozen ifs that prevented us from winning it all this year & that's with Schaub. I don't think Romo would have overcome them by himself.

Well, I take that back. His mobility damn sure would have helped us down the stretch, but his mistakes would have probably put us in a bigger hole.... so it's hard to say.

But basically, I agree with most others. If the Schaub era is over (& I don't believe it's even close to over, you guys are going to be really surprised by Schaub in2013) Romo is not the direction I want to go...... & I like Romo.

Looks like a moot point:

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 6m

Cowboys and Tony Romo reached an agreement on blockbuster 6-year extension that makes him highest paid player in team history, per sources.

Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan must be salivating over this.

Over/under Aaron Rodgers gets the most lucrative contract in NFL history?

Default Re: PFT HOU among teams interestd in Romo

I'd take romo over schaub all day. This offense would be a really good fit for romo. The throws aren't too hard...the scheme gets favorable match ups...a team that's committed to running the ball. A coach that has worked with a bunch if qb's and for all his warts knows how to get them to up their game...

Yes, sign me up.

I read on ESPN that they are working on an extension for Aaron that will average 25 mil a year.

Default Re: PFT HOU among teams should be interestd in Romo

I have serious doubts about etiher Romo or Schaub leading teams to the Super Bowl.

I'm not saying that they cannot be part of Super Bowl teams, but they won't be the catalyst for a Super Bowl run.

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

He may not have the neck surgeries Manning has, but it will 10 neck surgeries worth of experience for him to mature enough to stop making boneheaded plays and do what we (or the Cowboys) would need from him. If Schaub had Romo's ability or Romo had Schaub's maturity on the field, I'd probably go with that guy.

While I agree with the premise of your post....Kiffin's defense is Safety driven. They have the penetrators up front and what looks like a very solid LB corp. They should have good CB play as well. But Safety is by far the weakest position on the defense and the Safeties carry the biggest burden in his defense.

Couldn't agree more. Kiffin is one of the best DCs in the league, Ryan makes his living off his brothers name
