Did Roger Goodell, Jerry Jones, or Jason Garrett keep the Cowboys from pursuing Tim Tebow?
Now that the Tebow sweepstakes have passed us by, I ask myself ... why didn't the Cowboys go after Tim Tebow? It made more sense to me than the Jaguars, Packers, 49ers, and Dolphins, yet, not a peep from the Boys. It has been documented by Cowboy players that leadership on the offensive side of the ball is lacking on the field, and in the locker room. Tim Tebow gives them leadership in both areas. The Cowboys seem to struggle in the Red Zone every year. Romo has made too many mistakes while Jason Garrett has relied on him too much. Tebow would give the Cowboys a diverse RZ package. Teams would have to spend practice time preparing for both ... that would help Romo IMO. So, with leadership and RZ issues keeping the Cowboys out of championship contention, why wouldn't they want Tim Tebow wearing the "Star". Did Roger Goodell's decision to take away $10 million off of their cap kill their chances of pursuing Tim ? Is Tim Tebow's cult like "star" following too big for Jerry Jones to share the limelight with? Is Jason Garrett and his staff so comfortable with their offense that they don't want to have to be creative or make any changes to suit Tebow's style?
I see Tebow as a great fit in Dallas ... why did't the Cowboys?
