Here's a decent writeup about "the issue".
Romo worth $108M? Best, worst moments of Cowboys QB's career (CBS Sports)
Summed up in a single sentence: Romo turns in his best performances when relatively little is on the lines, but he chokes it away in big games.
I seriously doubt any GM in the league - other than Jerry Jones - would have offered 6 years / 108 million / 55 million guaranteed to a quarterback with Romo's record.
Romo threw for 416 yards and four touchdowns along with no interceptions, only to watch the Cowboys lose 34-31 to the Saints. Romo has thrown for over 370 yards six times in his career, the Cowboys are 0-6 in those games.
The Cowboys lose a lot of the games even when Romo is at his best. The problem is the entire team sucks in big games.
