Blame for Cowboys' struggles?

Chicken or egg? Quarterback or guy calling the shots? This was discussed by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday, the 25th anniversary of him buying the team. Jones took the blame for the team not winning a ring with Tony Romo, saying the responsibility "starts here." Do you agree? Will Jones' regret turn into triumph someday?

Cowboys shuffle coaching staff

Apparently play calling isn't the only thing the Dallas Cowboys felt was off in 2013. On the same day Scott Linehan was officially named Dallas' passing-game coordinator (and, therefore, playcaller), the team also demoted defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and promoted Rod Marinelli to the same position. Dallas finished last in the NFL in total defense in 2013, a major reason for the team's 8-8 record. Of course, Tony Romo, Jason Garrett and Jerry Jones are still there ...

What is Tony Romo to Cowboys?

The word out of Dallas is finally official: Tony Romo is done for the season after having back surgery and will miss the Cowboys' regular-season finale against the Eagles that will decide the NFC East. It's a bitter pill for Cowboys fans to swallow, but the silver and blue lining is that Romo should be back in plenty of time for next year's training camp and a fresh start to the 2014 season. Will Romo ever drive the team to a Super Bowl? Should the Cowboys even continue with the veteran quarterback or should they chart a new course?
