Tony Romo Mega-Contract

Postby DarthMonk » Fri Mar 29, 2013 4:04 pm

This is kinda funny:

Cowboys signed QB Tony Romo to a six-year, $108 million extension through 2019, including $55 million guaranteed.

Romo is 33, so the six-year extension locks him in through his age-39 season. Still a top-ten (regular season) QB, Romo is coming off career highs in attempts (648) and yards (4,903), although he led the NFL in interceptions (19) and absorbed 36 sacks to tie a career high. For Romo's part, he's been a top-nine fantasy quarterback in each of his last five healthy seasons. Romo's record over the past three years is 17-21. Even if "wins" are no way to measure quarterback performance, Romo hasn't taken Dallas to the playoffs since 2009 and has just one career playoff win. We like the extension for the fantasy values of Romo, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and Jason Witten. The price is fine -- $18 million per year -- but it's not necessarily a deal that will pay dividends for the future of Jerry Jones' franchise. The $55 million guaranteed surpasses Joe Flacco's $52 million, but comes up $5 million shy of Drew Brees' league-record $60 million guaranteed.

Bummer.

We all know how important it is to have a decent QB

I'm kind of sorry that the pukes decided to keep him - they could have brought in a lot of QBs that are nowhere near as good as Tony Romo
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they are open

RG3 will benefit from having a full off season to prepare and a better 'fit' at both HC and OC

Get rid of leno, letterman and the rest of that nonsense. Just give Jerruh his own show. EASILY the funniest man in America. What a wacky sense of humour.
It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom – for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

Don't know what the "puke" reference is, but signing Romo, (with an "R"...stop the childish Homo stuff) the undrafted Eastern Illinois QB to a ridiculous contract absolutely guarantees Dallas will be mediocre at best and confirms that Jerry is the second most clueless owner in the NFL.

Obviously the pukes reference is to the cowpukes, which is a pretty standard means of referencing the cowpukes.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"
