DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – I have a theory in the NFL. Great organizations can make pretty good QBs Superbowl winners. Great QBs can make pretty good organizations Superbowl winners.  But pretty good plus pretty equals something just slightly above average.

During the preseason, Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo said “This team is going to win a Super Bowl at some point. It’s going to be exciting when that time comes, and when we look back, we know who was on what side of the fence during the tough moments.”

Well Tony, just so we are clear, put me down for the side of the fence fence that says “it ain’t ever gonna happen”.

By the time your career is over, I will still think you are a good player and an awesome family man that all of us can feel good about having our kids look up to you, but you aren’t good enough to elevate this franchise.

It would take a truly great player to do that, and unfortunately Romo comes up short of that.   The only debate is to what degree.

Post Parcells, the Cowboys have lacked the consistency it takes to build a great roster. Hell, just look at the last two years.

The Boys brought in Brandon Carr and Mo Claiborne to be 1-on-1 press corners, and then changed to a defense that benefits a zone secondary.

They had Sean Lee averaging 15 tackles in a 3-4, paid him, and switched to a 4-3.  He has 9 total tackles this year.

They Invested in two great Wide Receivers, and then move towards a two Tight End offense, while using a second round pick on a TE that can’t block much better than you and I at this level.

They had Murray chewing up yards behind Tony Fiametta, let him go one year, then switched to zone blocking the next year.

I’m afraid example like this can be found elsewhere, becuase the owner always feels like he has the answers, and the team is just one big signing, or tactical adjustment away from being a real contender.

As much as I hate to say it as a huge fan of Romo, the best thing for both parties is for him to be traded, start rebuilding from the ground up with Jason Garrett and Stephen Jones in control, and let Romo find a team that doesn’t need him to play like a once in a generation player for him to have success.

Unfortunately, we all know that is not probably not practical at this stage of Romo’s career or plausible in this stage of the owner’s.

As far as hope for the next four years?

I guess there is always the possibility of lightning in a bottle. Fingers crossed.
