Poll:
Should the Cowboys consider a replacement for Tony Romo?

I was on The Ticket this week with Norm Hitzges. Hitzges asked me if I thought the Jets game was rock bottom for Tony Romo and that he would be better now.

I told him I didn't think so, but Cowboys fans had better hope so... and we would find out soon enough.

I don't get it. I really don't.

The Cowboys keep losing games because the quarterback won't fall down.

If he kneels down three times and they punt in the second half, the Lions can't catch up.

But three interceptions, they can.

There's nothing wrong with the play-calling. You have to expect the quarterback to throw it only to your guys (at least in the second half with a 24-point lead), and for whatever reason (and there are plenty) the Cowboys can't.

But it's a sad day when — in order to get better — you need to spend the off-week teaching your offensive guys how to tackle.
