Matts, I’ll gladly take this.
There’s little chance that things would’ve been much different if Romo played under Payton because of his mental meltdowns. Romo’s problems were 100% mental. Yes, he showed flashes of brilliance, but for every amazing play he made, he leveled the field with 2 mind numbing, back breaking INTs at literally the worst possible moment. Romo was never a winner. He was a stats compiler.
And, absolutely NOT to Zimmer. The Village Idiot is a mediocre coach. The concept of continually recycling washed up retreads is one of the many reasons why this team has always felt like we were behind the success curve. In this case, we’d have yet another antiquated scheme with yet another “yes man” coach. Haven’t we seen enough of that over the last 20 years? With the exception of Parcells, that’s ALL we’ve had, and look where it’s gotten us: nowhere.
