The responses ranged from astonishment to acknowledgement that Romo is the best Cowboys quarterback since Troy Aikman.

Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware, when asked on Sirius XM's NFL Radio on Thursday, was frank in his response: just win.

Unfortunately, it's that "next level" that always has stymied Romo in the past.
