It all starts at the QB in building a team,the Cowboys can try and build like the Pats,but Romo is not the guy to get them their glory years back IMO.
I'm sure there are many teams who would consider the NEP as one of the "model" franchises that they would like to emulate, so that's no surprise. Good luck with that having JJ as your owner, as many have pointed out--which will be their biggest obstacle.
Just out of curiosity, you do realize that Romo and his 17-18 million AAV salary will be one of the middle tiered averages for QB's in the next couple/few yrs, right?
Obviously we all know about his untimely INT's, but do you also know that his all-time career QB rating puts him neck in neck with Tom Brady? (95.6 all time QB rating for Romo) Tony Romo's 7 consecutive yrs of a QBR over 90 makes him with the 3rd all-time active streak in NFL history amongst ANY quarterback ever.
For a QB who just had another 5,000 yd season, and has an all-time completion percentage of 65%, he sure gets a lot of flack from the so called experts. I mean, don't get me wrong--he obviously has made some poor decisions in crunch time, but he's also easily one of the top 10 QB's in the NFL. It's not "great" to have a 2/1 TD to INT ratio, but it's not exactly horrible either...
I'm not sure how much anyone expecting him to sign for, but it's more than obvious that 2nd/3rd tiered QB's like Stafford, Romo, Matt Ryan, Flacco etc are all going to be in that 18-21 million AAV range.
