TONY ROMO: "IT'S ABOUT TIME" THE COWBOYS MAKE THE LEAP! (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d828468c0/article/tony-romo-its-about-time-cowboys-make-the-leap)

"Stop us if you've heard this one before: A
prominent Dallas Cowboy believes this is the year Big D gets back on

"It's about time that we go to that next step and I think our team is going
to be ready for that," Tony Romo (/players/tonyromo/profile?id=ROM787981) said during a
Thursday appearance on ESPN Radio (http://espn.go.com/dallas/nfl/story/_/id/7806246/tony-romo-dallas-cowboys-satisfied-wins-super-bowl).</p>

<a id="yui_3_4_1_2_1334280209640_924" href="http://www.nfl.com/goto?id=09000d5d828332da" target="_blank">This is a
important season</a> for Romo, who continues to put up the numbers of a top
quarterback, but has none of the team success that goes along with being a true
franchise star.</p>

Does that make Romo the problem? Notable playoff gaffes (http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000qVGOC7q2C14/s/750/750/botched-point-after1.jpg) aside, probably not. The Cowboys have
been a top-heavy organization in recent years, but this offseason Jerry Jones --
the team owner and general manager -- has made the most aggressive free-agent
push of his long tenure with the team.</p>

Jones might be the brain of the Cowboys, but Romo remains the face ... for
better or worse. Coming off a disappointing 9-7 season, the soon-to-be
32-year-old QB might not have too many shots left to change his reputation.</p>

"The Super Bowl is obviously the biggest team accomplishment, and also as a
quarterback, it's what we're defined as," Romo said.</p>

Yes, the Cowboys are talking a good game. But will this be the year they
finally back it up?"</p></div>

Jerry Reese will figure out he needs to hire a real GM one day

Good stuff. Although I'll cut Romo some slack-- I heard this interview on Dallas radio, so what else is he supposed to say, right?

I'll reserve my expectations for this club until after mid season, but I have to admit, I'm a bit enthused about the potential.

However, if the Cowboys do not get another pass rusher to help Ware in the draft, that enthusiasm will diminish.

We've seemingly plugged a lot of gaps and improved in some areas, but without another pass rusher, I'm afraid this team will not go anywhere.

I think I've stated it here before, but just in case I haven't, I see the Cowboys being a strong team in 2013, but probably not 2012. Just too many holes to fill.
