Is Tony Romo playing up to his contract and is it any indicator of what the Bears should do with Jay Cutler?
Romo will not earn his gaudy contract until he wins a Super Bowl in most fan’s eyes. Still, he’s probably underrated by most as far as skill is concern. But until it translates into more post-season success, he’ll never really deserve that contract. I’m not sure the Cutler/Romo comparison works simply because I don’t think the Bears front office is as in “love” with Jay Cutler as Cowboys general manger/owner Jerry Jones is with Tony Romo. I think they are still on the fence about Cutler being their quarterback of the future, whereas Dallas is “all-in” on Romo at this point.
What is your prediction for the game and final score?
There are a lot of factors to consider here. Weather is one. But based on what the Bears did this week against Minnesota Vikings, whom the Cowboys barely defeated earlier this season, I’m going with a close game and a Dallas victory. Expect whomever the Bears quarterback is to have a big day. Wideouts Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery should clean up in fantasy football leagues. I expect Dallas to stuff the run on defense, while trying to control the clock on offense by running it themselves. That plan will work until Chicago’s first touchdown. Then expect to see plenty of Tony Romo and his flying circus. Dallas squeaks by Chicago, 28-24.
