Romo plays unless he's hurt. You don't displace a successful regular season quarterback with a promising pre-season one.
However the Cowboys could try and take that pre-season promise and see if a team will send out some high round picks for him.
Or they could try and make him their QB of the future.
By extend drives, I mean convert third downs. If I have to choose between a quick TD drive and a long FG drive, I'll take the quick 7 points almost every time (save for a four minute situation where the FG basically ices it).
And I agree, getting off to a fast start is critical. Pagano seems to mention that every time he talks, because when this team has had slumps over the past three years, it's been because they start slowly and are down 2+ score in the second quarter.
I'm not saying he can. Although honestly I think Rex Ryan's teams have terrible discipline on the field. That might extend to off the field as well.
I'm saying that perhaps being cut might get the guy to take football more seriously.
It's just out and out stupid. We give people who commit terrible crimes a 2nd chance in the NFL. Shoot sometimes 3rd, 4th and 5th chances. I mean look at Greg Hardy. Karlos Williams gained 20 pounds, he didn't beat a woman within an inch of her life like Greg Hardy did.
But the dude is 20 pounds overweight and the whole NFL world is suppose to just decide. . . eh he's done, nothing we can do here. No thought to bringing him in and saying "Hey we have this contract but you can be cut without costing us a dime, so here is the rub. . . you show progress and you loose some weight by the time your suspension is over or your chance here is done.
Eddie Lacy got fat, his coach told him to lose some weight and he lost some weight.
