    Seems like they are just throwing darts at a board and listing teams to me.

    Sounds like speculation to me.

    Terribly titled thread. Even PFT didn't try to make it seem like the interest was current (or real for that matter).

    Say what you want about romo but if the money made sense, I would consider him a clear upgrade from Schaub and would like to see him here.

    He will be paid top dollar from someone else so it won't matter but thats my two cents.

    Romo is a good QB and he is what separates the cowboys from a 3-13 season. He makes that team appear much better than they actually are.

    Agreed. I heard they were working on a $100mil extension for him as we speak.

    Looks like the writer of that story had a deadline to meet...

    If money was close I would take Romo with his play making ability would be fun to watch here. I am thinking money he would demand would and will take Texans out of even considering Romo here.

    At the money Romo is likely to get, I'd just as soon go in another direction entirely.

    While he won't see Flacco money (or what Rodgers is likely to get soon), I believe it will be considerably more than Schaub just got.

    I don't mind the thought of moving on from Schaub, I just think there's better ways to do it than bringing in T. Romo.

    Listen. I live in the Dallas area. There are a lot of people up here who wouldn't be too upset if Romo moved on.

    While I think he's an athletic upgrade from Schaub and while I think he'd make a lot of plays Schaub can't, he also loses a lot of games for you. He pushes way too hard sometimes and makes stupid mistakes going for the big play instead of just playing it safe.

    If we're going to move on from Schaub, I'd like to see us go in some direction other than Romo.

    Isn't the reverse why we don't want Schaub though?

    It is.

    Mike Florio has been pushing for the Texans to "upgrade" at QB for a long time now.

    Remember, he was the one pushing the "Texans should go after Favre" thing when Schaub went down in 2011.

    With Schaub and Romo, you have two extremes: a guy who plays it close to the vest and a guy who takes every chance he can.

    With a good team, I prefer the guy who plays close to the vest although I know that drives a lot of you guys crazy.

    The perfect QB would be someone in between. A guy who recognizes when to take his shot and when to reel it in.

    If Romo came here and played QB for us, there would be just as many people complaining about him and begging for him to be cut as there are people complaining about Schaub and begging for him to be cut. All it would take would be a couple of bone-head plays that cost us games.

    When the pressure is ratcheted up in close games Schaub, more often than not either throws it away to live to fight another day or just takes the sack b/c he's not mobile enough to get out of the way.......Texans fans :hairpull: "why didn't he try to make a play!!!"

    When the pressure is ratcheted up in close games for Romo...more often than not he can escape, tries to make a play and either throws a pick or is sacked from behind and fumbles.....Cowboys fans :hairpull: "Jesus christ just throw it away!!!!"

    Lol at anyone thinking that we'd be getting an upgrade over schaub if we got Romo....both guys are the same person!...I've watched enough of both of these guys to know that when the heat is on, and the game is put in their hands the percentages are high that both these guys are going to make a mistake that'll cost you the game...Doesn't mean that they will...but very likely. Both also play under dumb ass coaches too so it's extremely unlikely that they'll be any different here or there.

    Romo is better than Schaub. But Romo will never be able to win a Super Bowl. So if you're switching QBs, go after one you think might be able to. What Schaub lacks in the physical department, Romo lacks in the risk analysis department.

    All it is on a slow news day. Jerry re-signs Romo if they make the playoffs. Which with their new DC, I think they will.

    What exactly makes you think Monte Kiffin is going to be any improvement over Rob Ryan?

    Seriously? Monte Kiffen coached 11 top 10 defenses in 12 seasons. If there were a hall of fame section for assistant coaches, he should be in it. Rob Ryan is the most overrated DC in the NFL (one top 10 in 9 seasons). It was an embarrassment having that defense allow 400 points for the season. There's more than enough talent there for Kiffen to turn things around.

    Put Romo behind a good O line and give him a stud RB/Defense and he'd put up better #'s than Schaub imo.

    A lot of the mistakes you see him make in Dallas is because he's asked to do too much at times. A lot like Phillip Rivers recently.
