Is It Romo OR JG???

This is the first post I have done. I am 29yrs old; I was born in WV and raised as a Cowboys fan. In fact everyone in my family is a Cowboys fan except one of my brothers which for some unknown reason is a Redskins fan which led to a lot of fights between us growing up. Furthermore, I religiously study the Dallas Cowboys. Romo tweeted "Thanks for the extra second", after the first pick in the draft. Like most fans I thought who is this guy. I was upset and believed we did not receive enough for the 18th pick. I truly hoped we would land Reid from LSU, while landing a interior lineman in the second round and picking up the honey badger in the third. Obviously it didn't happen that way. Still I believe we had a pretty good draft. Everyone knew we needed a good interior lineman. Romo gets killed by people for not performing in the "Big One" I don"t know if I am the only one that watches the games but I grew up playing football and was a running back. I know what it is like not having a good line in front of you. I know there is a difference between quarterback and running back. When I was young I played with great teams and players (Reggie Nelson, Joe Cohen, Mike Degory). Most people won’t know Mike Degory, he started 47 of 50 games at Florida at center. Joe Cohen was drafted by 49ers. The High School they went to was Palm Bay High. I was going to be on their team. My family ended up moving. That following season was the first time ever in my life I had a losing season. The line I had the privilege of playing with was utterly horrible. Romo has never even had a o-line that was okay. Every time in the playoffs in the shotgun formation the ball hits his hands and a second later d-lineman are in his face. You give him time and he will destroy a defense. With no time he scrambles and trys to make something happen....all of a sudden interception. The same thing happens with both Manning's and even Brady. We, as fans bashed JJ for selecting a lineman with the 1st pick myself included. After researching and factoring in the CAP situation. I concluded that perhaps it was pretty good move. It addressed the present and was looking ahead to the future. JG I believe is a good coach, maybe even great. He just needs to stop holding back for the first 3 qrts, and deciding to open up in the 4th. For the first 3 qrts he calls plays that only gain 4-7 yrds. Not calling plays for 10+ yrds and playing a 100yrd field. In conclusion all a D-Coordinator has to do is defend 5 to 12yrds with his defense. With this factoring into his game plan he will have to worry about less defensive plays to have to call in order to defend 15-20 yrd offensive play calls. All he has to do is play his red-zone defense the whole game. It changes all the plays the defense calls. Hence the reason of success in the 4th qrt when we are in the hurry up and Romo is calling the plays. Then a time out is called and we are stopped and have to settle for a field goal or an interception occurs. Can Romo win the big one? I believe so. You just have to give him the o-line to do it, just like with any other QB. Statistically he has proven he is a great QB. Can he win in the 4th qrt, when the team is down by 10 or 14pts? Can he win a playoff game? Can he win in DEC? The answer to all those questions is yes. So give him the tools to do it with, without having to do it all by himself. Personally I believe he will take us to the promise land if we give him the tools. Having Romo more involved in the game planning is great, he has proven he can make the calls in the game. I look forward to the upcoming season. I will post my thoughts on the defense in my next post. I know I am probably going to be hammered by my fellow fans about this post if some of you even read it. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
