There is talk out of ESPN in Dallas adding Jacksonville to the teams that may be interested in Romo in addition to Denver and Houston.

This is league insider speculation and may be coming from the Cowboys to try to build up interest in Romo to make it easier to unload him.

This would mean pulling the plug on Bortles. Hummm.

Would be a really bad idea and fit. Romo has all those back issues, and our OL can't stop a nosebleed. He wouldn't even come close to making it through half the season for us, nor is the rest of the team competent enough to take advantage of a late stage career QB. Even if he stayed healthy, we're still no better than a 9 win team.

If Romo can't survive behind the Dallas OL imagine what will happen to him here.

Honestly, put on the game tape and our OL wasn't very bad this past year in the pass pro department. Our problem was run blocking. Blake had a lot of time back there for the most part outside of a game or two.

He isn't a good fit though. I'm sure they just lumped us in there because we have cap and Blake is coming off a poor year.

Blake was hit 90 times last year. Romo wouldn't survive that.

Yeah, but you know how Blake plays. Isn't exactly quick with getting the ball out and likes to run it.

Certainly not saying our pass pro is great, just that it really was decent this past year for the most part. Blake was just really, really bad and couldn't hit anything. Laughing

Romo plays the same way, and actually holds the ball longer. Blake's average time from snap to throw is 2.59 seconds. Romo's is 2.76 seconds. Romo also had the long time to throw before he had the elite OL, so it isn't a product of being given more time.

That's also hits on plays where he was a passer, not where he eventually ran or was designed to run.

Yeah. Let's not paint it as though Romo is Peyton Manning just dink and dunking, ball out the second it touches his hands from the shotgun or something. Romo would get destroyed here, just as badly as Bortles. While being even less durable.


And also, it would be completely moronic.

Find out if Bortles sucks or not so we can move on. To do that, he needs to play. And he needs to have the entire focus on developing anything he might have to offer. Not futzing around with some 80 year old with back issues and a history of being just as irresponsible with the football as Bortles at key moments when asked to do the sort of load-carrying Bortles has been asked to do.

It doesn't matter if our O-Line was almost sorta not horrendously bad in pass pro sometimes. If they can't run the ball, you're going to end up asking the QB to toss it 40 times a game...and Romo is a proven non-winner when asked to do that. Even with an otherwise okay team.


But mostly, it's just stupid to bother with any sort of Veteran stopgap QB at this stage in our team's development. It makes no sense. We're not a "mediocre veteran QB" away from anything other than mediocrity. We need a stud QB, or a stud Team. Or both. Romo addresses neither.


Unless we wanna sign Cutler. Which i would fully support just because i find him hysterically amusing.
