Excellent post. The D has sucked, the running game has sucked. the only thing keeping this team .500 has beeen Romo pulling some wins out of his

This is the key difference between us. I am not satisfied with small incremental growth when a GM and coach have worked together for this long

But just because it's called a "signing bonus" it's still really his salary. That's like getting an advance on 3 years of work then not doing the job. The term "signing bonus" is just a semantically game teams play to get what they can out of the Cap.
