Hey Romo, it's time for you to move on.

Many have debated on where you stand among the quarterbacks of today. You take too many chances, you can't keep your head in the game, your not a leader, and you can't win when it counts. All of these comments have been made by commentators and fans alike. In most recent talks a former NFL player has been quoted as saying that he doesn't know why you are held as such a superstar. "He hasn't done anything" he said.

Let me just remind folks out there that Dallas was 6-10 in 2004 and 9-7 in 2005 (missing the playoffs). Dallas wasn't on any one's map. They weren't circled on the schedule like they are today. They were nobody for those two years, they were simply horrible.

Furthermore, the Cowboys were 9-7 the first year you played 10 games as a starter, finishing fourth in team points, and 13-3 the year you started all 16. Never mind that Dallas was second in scoring that year or that you threw for 36 touchdowns. Never mind that you were on pace to throw for 32 touchdowns last year, before you not got injured. None of that matters because "you haven't done anything".

Never mind that your offensive line can't pass block, your running backs are tripping pass rushers and don't even know who is supposed to be on the field on any particular play. Never mind that your offensive line has to hold the pass rushers in order to give you more than 1.5 seconds to get rid of the ball, or that your wide receivers can't catch. None of that matters because "you haven't done anything".

The Cowboys are still a mediocre team led by a great quarterback. If not for Romo escaping the pass rush and making plays down field and for the outstanding running game they have, Dallas would still be a 6-10 team.

So I say to you Romo, get out of Dallas. If the fans expect more out of you than what you have given them, get out.

After all, what is it that you've done. You have been the starter for two years now, Dallas should have won at least...well...two Superbowls.
