Did Tony Romo Deserve Better?

At least one person who works for the Green Bay Packers thinks so. As Dallas Cowboys quarterback — Wisconsin’s own — Tony Romo walked off the field following his team’s loss to the Packers, one Packers staffer told Romo just that.

That he deserved better.

Presumably that meant that he should have gotten his job back from Dak Prescott when he was once again healthy.

The person who told Romo that is apparently trainer Pepper Burruss.

How Burruss knows Romo, we have no idea. However, Romo did point to him and go over and shake his hand after the game. So we would assume there’s some sort of relationship.

Whatever the case, Romo also shook hands with guys we’re sure he has no relationship with, like rookies Kenny Clark and Geronimo Allison.

And then he walked off the field for likely the last time as a member of the Dallas Cowboys.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Romo is the Chicago Bears QB next season.

    even though it may sound shitty, its a business…. Romo was paid very well for what he did and didn’t deserve anything

    There’s no crying in football. If anyone believes the adage of you don’t lose your job because of injury. I have a bridge in the San Fran Bay i’d like to sell you.

    This is now what we call, Jerry’s dilemma. He is married to Romo, and he doesn’t want a divorce.

    Jerry wants to keep both. But you can’t pay a back up 19.7 million with a 24 million dollar cap hit.

    So if he wants to keep Romo, Jerry needs to re-insert him as starter.

    Hence why Garrett wouldn’t acknowledge that Dak is the starter next season.

    Because Jerry hasn’t decided to sign the divorce papers.

    as long as Prescott is on his rookie contract, they can keep Romo around and be no worse cap-wise. It would be the same financially if Romo were the starter and Prescott were the back up. I’m sure they think they can get something for Romo right now, so therefore the interest in trading him. Its all business baby….. nothing personal, right?

      Except, if you start thinking deeper.

      First…I didn’t say they couldn’t keep both. I know Dak is cheap. But that still doesn’t make any sense to keep a 20 million dollar back up. 20 million dollars….should be money spent, on the field making plays. Not holding a clipboard. It’s not complicated.

      Secondly) Anybody can say…just trade him. But trading Romo is no simple request. He is injury prone, he is extremely expensive, you give up a draft pick, he’s going to be 37 and he’ll have to learn a new system before next season. Who makes that trade? Denver? Maybe, if Elway is desperate and drunk at closing time, but it wouldn’t end well.

      Successful franchises don’t go there. And why would he go to a team with no chance to win?

      Maybe he reworks his contract and stays. IDK.

    If I could make $20 million for holding a clip board, I’d be laughing all the way to the bank. Heaven forbid he actually be healthy when he retires.

    The man is a class act. That is for sure.

    If the Cowboys have anyone starting at QB other than Dak, they don’t care about winning. After seeing him play in the preseason, you could tell he’s going to be kicking the rest of the NFC’s butts for quite a while.
