Quarterbacks

Where they stand:
#9 Tony Romo
#7 Stephen McGee

2011 Review: Tony Romo had the best season of his career. He ranked 4th in touchdowns and 7th in yardage. Romo also had the best QB rating of his career, with 102.5. Never in his career has he been more efficient than he was this year. Aside from two horrendous 4th quarters, he was as good as a quarterback as you could ask for. With Kitna gone, the Cowboys are left with Stephen Mcgee. McGee played in one very forgettable game this year. He just hasn't shown me enough to feel comfortable with him being the #2, much less Romo's replacement.
                                                                         
Top Free Agents: Drew Brees (NO), Jason Campbell (OAK), Alex Smith (SF), Kyle Orton (KC).
                                                                     
Top Draft Prospects: Andrew Luck (Stan), Robert Griffin III (Baylor), Ryan Tannehill (TAMU), Brandon Weeden (OkState), Kirk Cousins (Mich St), Nick Foles (Arizona).
                           
What should they do?: I definitely think we should go after a veteran QB in free agency. I just don't trust McGee to be the #2. If Romo goes down the Cowboys need someone with experience to come in the game and secure a win, just like Jon Kitna did such a great job doing. As much as I hate to say it, Romo only has a few more years left in him. Secondary is clearly the biggest need this off-season but I believe the Cowboys should try and pick up a quarterback late in the draft to one day replace Romo, such as Russell Wilson from Wisconsin or Case Keenum from Houston. Stephen McGee is not the answer for when Tony Romo finally hangs it up.
