  • Denver vs. Houston for Romo

    These seem to be the two favorites to land Romo. The question is, which destination is more attractive?

    In terms of offense, I have to give Houston the nod. I'll take Lamar Miller over C.J. Anderson and C.J. Fiedorowicz over any of our TEs. WR is a different story. I'll take DT and Sanders over Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins. O-line? Well, I don't really know how good Houston's is. I know it's better than ours, however. Elway has to improve it significantly or else signing Romo would just be a waste.

    The defenses seem fairly equal. Watt and Clowney are a monster 1-2 punch. I don't think Houston's secondary can match up to ours. Plus, Denver's D has a championship pedigree.

    Some non-football factors might include Romo's comfort in the state of Texas and whether or not Houston is on Jerry Jones' "do right" list. I doubt very much Jerry would want another Texas team to get a lot of publicity, not to mention potentially turn into a legit contender with a franchise QB.

    Houston, he will not have to worry about the better QB being behind him on the depth chart.

      You mean Siemian? If that were true Denver wouldn't be thinking of signing Romo.

        The fact that Romo built his own custom mansion in north Dallas and started a family there has to be why ESPN reported last month that Houston was his preferred landing spot.

        Who cares what Jones wants, he has no say in the matter. Besides, the Texans are in the AFC and so Romo will have very limited opportunities to play against his former team. He really has nothing to complain about. The Texans will never eclipse Cowboys popularity in that state- ever, and the Cowboys are doing really well now so I'm sure Jones isn't biting his nails over where Romo is going nor calling up Bob McNair and threatening him!

          Trevor, Lynch, take your pick. In an open competition Romo may win out this year, but in 2018? I doubt it, not at his age and injury history. If he does come here, I would wager he is not the starter in 2018 unless we just commit to it without competition.

          How many 38 year old QBs can hold off the competition?

            His say in the matter could be Jones just not releasing him.

              The age question depends on the QB. We all saw Peyton Manning fall apart before our very eyes in only a couple of years. In 2013 he had the greatest season of all time. By 2015 he was a shell of himself. Tom Brady, on the other hand, is 39 and is still as good as ever.

                The Cowboys are releasing him tomorrow, and once that's done Jones doesn't get to decide where Romo lands.

                  No absolutes, but historically speaking, very few 38 year olds perform at a high level at QB. Brady seems to be the exception to the rule and he has for the most part been pretty healthy thought his career.

                    Houston can have him, we will even throw in a late round pick to make sure we don't get him.

                        I don't know if that's a thing, but I'm all for it. Houston can have our 7th if they sign Romo

                          That was never going to happen, that was all talk trying to get some sucker to offer something up. Dallas was never going to carry that contract when they were already over the cap.
                          Anonymity is cowardice, and cowards are not known for their wisdom.

                            How much cap space do the Texans have? How can they afford both Os and Romo at the same time while trying to upgrade their role positions on offense and defense?

                            At any rate, Texans have a high ranked O line, we don't as of now. I wonder if Romo is considering this

                              If Houston lands Romo there is something almost ironically poetic it - how they threw money at an unproven player, overvaluing him in the process, and are on the hook for his salary next year in addition to possibility of signing Romo.
