Personally, no.

I think we should extend him midseason if he is having a good season, but I wouldn't extend him until at least week 5.

Lets not forget that the last 5 games of the season the Cowboys were 1-4 (including the playoff game). Romo through 8 ints and 7 TD's during that stretch.

As much as I 'THINK' he'll be a good QB for years to come, I don't want to lock him up for a long time right now if he's not.

No. Let's make sure he's not a flash in the pan before we give him big bucks.

Of course the flip side is if he blows up this year and throws 25 TDs and 7 INTs and has 4000 yards, he is going to cost you a ton more than right now. It's a tough call for Jerry.

51% Yes 49% No, in my mind. We may need a recount.

I say no. Let's see where his head is after last season.

Right now I'd say his value is pretty high...he's shown that he can be a high-quality starting quarterback (heck he went to a pro-bowl this season), but then again Mark Brunell went to the Pro-Bowl last year (Bledsoe probably should have as well)...disregarding their age, would you like to give them long-term contracts as well? I'd guess not, because hindsight is a beautiful thing. Romo's value is not going to increase much more than it already has, whereas it certainly could fall. If you give him a big contract now, not only are you paying more for him this season, but you could be majorly overpaying in the future if he stumbles. Better to play it safe this year.

No, I knew you voted YES.

I misread one of the posts.

No, but not for a reason anyone has said yet. Right now, Romo is driven. He is driven to make the botched snap right again. If we give him a big fat contract now, it lets him relax. Right now I don't want him to relax, I want him to prove the doubters wrong.

A clip from Mick I thought applicable to this discussion:

"Don't you worry. This is no revelation to Romo. He knows he's still proving himself. He knows he's a work in progress. He knows he's not out of those who-is-this-guy woods just yet. He knows until he earns that big payday the ice he's on will always be moderately thin."

I voted yes. Why? I don't think Romo will be a bust. He's shown me enough. The longer we wait, the more we'll have to dish out. Especially if he continues to do well. You don't always wanna lock guys up prematurely which is the logic behind most of the No votes, but I think Romo is the answer guys. Lock him up now.

Didnt we resign him last year before the season?

I have to agree with D-Unit.

As I said, if he goes off this year for 25+TDs and 10INTs and throws for 4000+ yards, he will command giant money. Right now you could probably get him for just big money.

I'm a fan of paying him during the season. I don't like the idea of sidetracking him...so hopefully NFL deals during the season deal more with the agents...but I agree that take about 6 weeks to evaluate where he is at.

I voted No!

Reason: I have not seen enough that tells me Romo is the guy. He has shown signs, but that's not enough to open the vault just yet.

It sounds to me, by just listening to Jerry Jones. That he is hesitant on crowning Romo as the next great QB of the Cowboys.

It will be interesting to see which QB Dallas selects (if they select one) in the draft.

How many Dallas QB's have ever thrown for 4000+ yards??? Yeah ok...

Now granted he could throw 25 and 10... But whats that??? A couple extra TD's more then he did this season?

We sign him longterm when we know he is our longterm answer.
