You might remember prior to Wilson's rookie season, Seattle's GM and Coach flew to Denver during Peyton's job-hunting visit, to try to lure him to Seattle. Even they didn't know yet that they already had a future starter.

Finding a franchise QB in later rounds is the NFL equivalent of winning the lottery,
Once again, I think our owner is screwing things up. Given what he's done so far, Prescott has earned the starting position for the rest of the season. They're treating him like a scrub, basically making him play for the position every game. That's just wrong and a LOT of us Cowboys fans do not like it.

People joke that Tony Romo's last name should be Jones. I get being loyal but I personally believe Romo's best days are behind him. I hope Dak continues to produce at this level so there is no reason to insert Romo except in end of game situations or if we win enough to clinch play off spots and we sit Dak to keep him healthy. I realize that he is a rookie and things can change but his numbers for this season are better than Romo's career averages. It's a no-brainer to me but Jones has a history of having no brain.

This Cowboys fan thinks we hit the NFL Powerball with Dak AND Zeke. Are you kidding me?

Yeah. He was in Seattle in 2012 and back in Green Bay in 2014.

Tony Romo just went down as one of the greatest Dallas Cowboys to ever suit up.

The Cowboys fans I know on FB seem to be really split about it all. Basically the sentiment seems to be "if Dak is this good, it's because their offensive line is good and their attack is balanced. Imagine how much better Romo will be with these guys"

I wonder if it was his decision or a forced move to make things look good?

I believe they are wrong. Mind you, Dak is given unbelievable protection from what I believe is one of the best (if not the best) O-Line. However, Dak is freakishly good as well.

Honestly, I believe it is his decision. The love fest between Jones and Romo is well documented. Most fans were honestly expecting Romo back in at the first sign of Dak faltering. I think it shows Romo's character.

Let me clarify something. I believe the decision to keep Dak in as starter came from the coaching staff and possibly Jones. If they had gone to Romo and said, "Hey, you're starting this Sunday," I don't believe he would have declined. Maybe, but I doubt it. It was his decision to handle it in the way he handled it and for that I take my hat off to him. There are still quite a few games left, who knows what might happen?

I do think it will be interesting to watch in the off season. IF (and that's a big IF) the Cowboys are successful for the remainder of the season and make a deep run in the play offs (I'm not greedy enough to dream of a Super Bowl win...yet) then I believe Dak will remain starter for the future. What do they do with Romo? He wants to play. He made that obvious. There is a lot of money tied up in him so it's not like they can just trade him off. He would have to be willing to budge some on his current contract. Mike & Mike suggested that he might be a good fit at Denver, depending upon how the rest of their season goes.

As a life long Cowboys fan I am pulling for Romo but I am also pulling for the team. Yesterday was bittersweet because fans witnessed the end of the Romo era. I really feel bad for him because he was at the peak of his game in 2014 and got sidelined by injuries for the next two seasons. I would love to see him get a ring but it would be sad to see it happen with him as the back up QB.

Don't mistake me though, I would definitely celebrate.

The way they're playing, I'd fully expect Romo to get the start around week 16/17.

I hate the Cowboys. Like, Dodger levels of hate.

Zeke and Dak are SO GOOD and fun to watch.

And the 49ers will gladly welcome their new QB next season, Tony Romo.

I am still trying to reign in my excitement. Too many games left.

Since you brought it up, where do you all think Romo will end up? I have seen several teams mentioned but the one that keeps popping up is Denver.

Denver seems to be a logical place for him.

That KC/Denver game was an instant classic. One in which it's hard to watch either team come away with a loss. Battling all night long, and more than once I thought it was over for KC, but resilient they were for sure.

If I were a betting man, right now I believe Dallas is the team to beat in the entire NFL. It's shaping up to be a great push toward the playoffs and super bowl.
