    I laughed even harder at this than the Flacco deal.

    This basically guaranteed Cowboys fans they will not win a Super Bowl for six years, but I guess we already knew that.

    I voted for both. Flacco's contract is a big wtf, and it's pushed players out. Romo's contract is just as bad because he had the team over a barrel. A panic contract after they found out they would be unable to franchise tag him in '14. It did save them against the cap, for now. Still a panic contract.

    Romo is a Top 5-6 regular season QB. But bad coaching, horrible and medling ownership, and a inconsistent defense have hurt the Cowboys more than anything.

    Romo is very accurate and makes a lot of big plays. Without him the Cowboys would be a 3-4 win team at Max.

    That said, this is way too much money to commit to a 30+ year old QB who hasn't won a championship.

    Eh, it's not that much of a shocker, Dallas is in win mode now and have too much talent on paper to tank. Plus in a QB dominating league and after putting up with guys like Quincy Carter and Chad Hutchinson at QB, I can't blame them for wanting to lock up Romo, who's still a top 10 QB despite his share of wtf moments.

    I would personally never hand out this kind of money to Tony Romo, but looks what's out there? Vince Young, rookie, or Kyle Orton. It's not like Dallas had a ton of choices here. And plus there's about to be a ton of $20M/yr QB's.

    Watch Matt Ryan get some ridiculous figure, and he can't win a playoff game.

    They're QB's in a "QB league", these guy are going to get paid.

    Not sure what Jerry was thinking on this one! Romo, worth that kind of dough? He is laughing all the way to the bank on this one!

    I agree that during the regular season he puts up some pretty good numbers. But when the game is on his sholders he plays on par with JaMarcus Russell. I think he is the only QB who can play elite for three quarters and then flip a switch and play so horribly that you wish Vince Young was your QB.
