Is It Time For The Dallas Cowboys To Cut Ties With Tony Romo?

I say let him go, it’s time to cut the ties. The poor guy is basically put back there as target practice. Seriously, is this what rock bottom feels like? I just can’t imagine how it can get much worse than this. I guess a winless season would be worse but even then at least you wouldn’t expect anything. This team just dangles hope in front of your eyes and teases just enough to make you hurt.

Okay, so the title of this article is probably a little misleading. Okay let’s not sugarcoat it; it’s very misleading. Just by the title I imagine many of you though it was going to be a Romo bashing. Actually, I’m sure all of you Romo haters were probably hoping for it. This article is written as a plea for some kind of change.

Love him or hate him, Tony Romo was what gave the team a chance on Thanksgiving’s embarrassment. The line once again was abysmal, the running game isn’t even at a jog, and let’s face it people, this defense may be just a little overrated. You aren’t going to win many games giving up 38 points.

Is it time to cut ties with Tony Romo? I say no, but the guy deserves a whole heck of a lot more than this. He basically has one weapon in Dez Bryant to help him create miracles. I’m sure a lot of you are thinking that I left Jason Witten out. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jason Witten and I think he’s a vital part of this team, but he just hasn’t been making the big plays we’ve become accustomed to seeing.

Okay so like I said, the title of this article was probably very misleading, but something has to happen. Jason Garrett just doesn’t seem to get it. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, good call, except I’m pretty sure this thing is broke. It seems like the exact same story every week. I’m no coach and I don’t claim to have an easy solution but try something different. The hurry up has worked for this team before why is that not even considered. What’s the worst that could happen? Another loss? The playoffs look pretty bleak now anyways so what’s the damage. This is like a backwards game of Russian roulette where every pull of the trigger has a bullet in it except for one. One more loss and the playoffs are probably out of the question.

I don’t know what to say anymore. Tony Romo deserves much better than this. I think he’s at least owed a better opportunity. Hopefully it’s with this team. He still hasn’t agreed to a new contract so maybe this is his escape route. Hope is not completely gone for this season so let’s keep our heads up, but hopefully five weeks from now our mentality will have changed.
