What A Tony Romo Extension Will Mean For Dallas


Tony romo redskins

By Hannah

When Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys officially come to terms with a contract extension, the two will have a little more stability going forward. However, the question is, what will the extension do for the Cowboys as they continue their quest towards a Super Bowl run?

For starters, locking up a quarterback as talented as Romo is imperative for any legitimate contender. Sure, Romo has had his moments in which fans are fed up with him, but the front office, and daily fantasy sports players, know that there is no one currently available who could replace Romo any time soon.

Having a stable quarterbacks will also allow the Cowboys to start building around him and filling in holes. This all goes back to having a franchise quarterback. If free agents know they have a shot to compete, they will continue to come to Dallas to bolster the roster.

Not only is Romo about to get an extension, but the biggest deal for the short-term is the fact that his contract will be restructured a bit. His current cap number is $16.8 million, which really holds back Dallas in pursuing free agents. While no one will know for sure how low it will go, the obvious assumption is that Dallas will free up millions which will allow them to sign free agents and draft picks.

At the end of the day, everyone wins with this extension. Dallas gets to build around their franchise quarterback and add stability to their franchise for the near future. Romo gets security when it comes to getting paid during the prime of his career. Romo and the Cowboys both will enjoy having money to get better protection for Romo when he is in the pocket. All of these should add up to a season that is better than 8-8 at the end of the day.

Dallas Cowboys Cap Crunch


Dallas Cowboys Star

The Dallas Cowboys are currently $20 million over the cap and will need to restructure contracts with several players to get under the 2013 salary cap.

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said that it is “not necessarily” for the Dallas Cowboys to have a contract extension done for quarterback Tony Romo in order for the team to get under the salary cap.

Stephen Jones: “We have a good quarterback here and we want to reward him.”


Stephen and Jerry

Dallas Cowboys VP Stephen Jones was on 105.3 The Fan yesterday and said that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo deserves to be paid. 

Jones said, “We have a good quarterback here and we want to reward him. He’s in the last year of his contract. Our goal is to not let our quarterback run out of contract. We have a good one here and we want to reward him.”

“At the same time, when you have a good one and you’re fortunate enough to have a good one then he’s going to take up the biggest part of your cap space, so you have to be partners with one another and you have to do things. No one wants to win more, no one wants to have success more than Tony. He knows in order to do that we have to manage our cap and he plays a big part in that because the percentage of the cap that he takes.

The Dallas Cowboys are currently 20 million dollars over the salary cap and if the team and Romo come to an agreement it would reduce Romo’s 2013 cap hit of 16.8 million dollars almost in half.

The Tony Romo Internet Hoax: 100% False


 

Tony Romo

Twitter and the internet community was all the buzz yesterday with the news that Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo was hurt in a freak car accident where he broke both of his legs.

The website behind this story was Global Associated News.

Here is the story originated from their website:

A spokesperson for the Dallas highway safety authority (HSA) has confirmed that Tony Romo has broken both of his legs in a traffic altercation. He has been transported via ambulance to a local Dallas hospital for treatment, and the full extent of his injuries are not known at this time, however, both of his legs were visibly broken and not life threatening according to sources. The accident involved a 2012 BMW driven by Tony Romo and a 76 year old female driver in a 2010 Audi. The driver of the Audi was issued a citation for failing to stop at a red light before striking the vehicle driven by Tony Romo at a high rate of speed.

Carolina Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton was the victim of the same hoax about a month ago.

At the bottom of Global Associated News web site reads:

Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank ‘non-specific’ template for the purpose of entertainment.

So attention all Dallas Cowboys fans this story is 100% false and do not believe anything from this website.

Cowboys at Redskins


JG

Do or die. That’s the motto for tonight’s prime-time showdown between the 8-7 Dallas Cowboys and the 9-6 Washington Redskins. With the Chicago Bears 26-24 victory over the Detroit Lions earlier today, the Redskins are now unable to obtain a wildcard spot if they lose to Dallas.

Here is the tiebreak scenario if Dallas were to win: Both teams would be 9-7 overall. The head-to-head would be tied also, with the ‘Skins 38-31 victory in Dallas on Thanksgiving day. That leads us to the Common Game record. Both teams faced the Giants and Eagles twice.

After those games, the Redskins’ Common Games record is 3-1 and the Cowboys’ is as well. After playing the NFC South, The ‘Skins are 5-3 and Dallas is 5-3. So far, another tie, but after the AFC North, Washington was 7-5 and Dallas was 8-4.  There you have it, if the Cowboys win, it goes that deep. If the Redskins win, the claim the Division due to 2-0 vs The Cowboys. This truly is the definition of a ‘down-to-the-wire’ division championship chase.

Robert Griffin III has the weapons: Santana Moss, Aldrick Robinson, Josh Morgan, Alfred Morris, and the option play. RGIII does have momentum, too. 6 wins in a row to be exact, but does this compare to the pressure for Romo to perform in Big-D?  Mr. Romo has 1 year left on his contract, and you have to think that if he gets blown out, Jerry Jones, even though it seems unlikely, could sever ties and head in the next direction. But, ver 4,600 yards after 16 weeks isn’t too shabby at all. No one seems to care because Romo is Romo and he isn’t very popular.

In fact, he’s mostly hated by anyone who doesn’t like the Cowboys. He can silence the critics tonight though. Good luck to both teams, but may the Cowboys win!

Cowboys rally in the 4th but fall in overtime 34-31


Dallas Cowboys Star

The Dallas Cowboys (8-7) overcame a 14 point deficit in the fourth quarter versus the Saints to force overtime but came up short with a 34-31 loss at Cowboys Stadium.  The Cowboys still have a chance to win the NFC East title since the New York Giants loss today 33-14 to the Baltimore Ravens.

Next Sunday everything will be up for grabs in the prime time match up versus arch rival the Washington Redskins at FedEx field. The Redskins won the first matchup at Cowboys Stadium Thanksgiving day 38-31.

Cowboys win 38-33 pulls within a game of the NFC wildcard

Deja Vu anyone? Same mental mistakes and the same puzzling play calling in crunch time derails the Dallas Cowboys once again.
