With Romo Out Dallas Cowboys Have Clear Path To Super Bowl

It seems like Santa got a lot of Cowboy fans what they wanted for Christmas this year, and that’s a sidelined Tony Romo.

Many Romo haters are finally getting what they asked for, and we are finally all going to see just how much better off this team really is.
From all the talk over the years about how Romo is hindering this team from moving forward, it should all fall perfectly into place right?
Now that Romo is gone this defense should be at it’s best ever. Expect Demarcus Ware to return to Hall of Fame form and tally a few sacks and tackles for loss.
Look for Brandon Carr to awake from his pathetic slumber and single-handedly shut down the Eagles passing attack.
With that being said I would expect a skunk by this defense.
Expect Jason Garrett and Bill Callahan to have the blindfold removed from their eyes and pound the ball more because everyone knows Romo had something to do with that as well. Demarco Murray should easily top 100 yards on around 25 carries.
Bryant, Austin, Williams, and Witten will all have career days as they slice and slash this Eagles defense.
And we’ll all go galloping on horseback into the sunset.
Or at least this is what I gather from all the Romo trash-talking over the years.
I’m afraid we might be begging to have him back before the final cannon even sounds.
Now that the rant is over let’s get real.
The Kyle Orton signing now looks like pure genius at this point. If nothing else he gives us a chance at victory.
But if all of the negativity and disrespect to Romo’s play were true, then I expect nothing less than the Dallas Cowboys waltzing into the Super Bowl this season.
No disrespect to Kyle Orton, but for some reason I don’t see him with the play-extending capability that may very well have won the game against Washington this past Sunday, which in turn is the reason we are having this discussion at all.
Well, in one last tribute to the Christmas holiday it looks like us Cowboys fans will get a look at the Cowboys version of “It’s A Wonderful Life”. Much like George Bailey’s request of “I wish I’d never been born”, we’re all going to see what it would be like had Tony Romo never been the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.
While I’m optimistic about Orton’s abilities, I’m not sure this movie is going to have such a happy ending.
But, as is always the case, I hope I’m very wrong.

    Dez, Witten, Beasley,Williams,Austin,Harris might play Murray healthy,the line holding its own ,I think either Orton or Kitna can make a game of this with Romo out I suspect Ware or Witten will step up and rally the TEAM ,I know one thing with Romo out I will not expect any last minute come back, nor last minute disaster .Win or lose Jerry Must GO!

  • Pete Vieira

    For the koolaid drinkers Romos cup is half full, for” haters” for lack of better words his cup is half empty ,half full or empty is still mediocre.Our real problem is at GM and until Jerry steps aside nothing will change, no coach worth talking about will work for Jerry ,and even if Jerry does step down their will be a couple of down years to fix the cap mess,you wouldn’t build your home on a mud foundation, Jerry needs to go ,we play into Jerry’s hand with these pointless arguments ,Romo ,Garret ,Kiffin, who paid Romo that crazy money ,who backs Garret when he iced our kicker, with his play calling with his clock management, who hired my great grandmothers boyfriend to be our D COO ,JERRAH 17 yrs the only constant .Keep your eyes on the ball people ,JERRY MUST GO OR NOTHING CHANGES!

      Jerry the GM must go or nothing changes? You have summed up the root of every problem Dallas has, or will ever have. Until Jerry is straight-jacketed and locked up in a padded room – and they key launched into deep outer space – America’s team will be nothing more than mediocre.

        Dead on accurate. Jerry Jones is Al Davis and he is only going to get worse. If Jerry Jones had a GM with the same track record as his own he would have fired him years ago and he would have been right to do so. Jerry is blind to his own failures and ignorance. I will love my Cowboys good or bad but honestly I am waiting for the day Jerry Jones is no longer GM, President, Chief Scout, Draft “expert”, and general meddler from the press box.
