The Dallas Cowboys...For all the criticism that Tony Romo takes down there and a owner and general manager in Jerry Jones that you never know what he's thinking, plus a frustrated fanbase, I'm just shocked that nobody has linked Manning to them.
I'll start with saying that I'm not a Tony Romo basher. For all the lambasting he takes, he has them in prime opportunity every year for the playoffs. Now is he elite? Thats debatable, but he's tough (See 2011 49ers game), plays hard and is a solid leader. However that fanbase down there is tired of empty promises and like us 49er fans, wants to recapture some of that old glory. I think a big move like that would be something to get them re-energized.
Jerry Jones has always been a wildcard and seems like somebody genuinely commited to winning, so if anybody could pull off a big trade or signing like that, it's him. That team is set perfectly for a star quarterback like Peyton Manning and offers a lot of intrigue to someone like him. They've got a very talented young set of receivers in Laurent Robinson, Dez Bryant, and Miles Austin. A solid running game with Demarco Murray and Felix Jones and albeit an aging one but still one of the most dependable tight ends in the game in Jason Whitten. They have a more than adequate defense.
So again I'm just curious as to why you guys think that the Cowboys wouldn't atleast be semi-interested or maybe they are flying under the radar or do they just have that much faith still in Tony Romo? Your thoughts?
