The Dallas Cowboys remain committed to Tony Romo as the quarterback to lead them to the Super Bowl.
Although Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said Eli Manning is the difference between the Super Bowl-winning Giants and the home-for-the-playoffs Cowboys, Jones’s son Stephen Jones made clear that the ownership is behind Romo. Stephen Jones, who has the title of executive vice president of the Cowboys, said the franchise is fully behind Romo.
“We are firmly in the corner that that’s not our issue,” Jones told the Dallas Morning News. “If you’re a Cowboy fan, if you’re somebody who wants the Cowboys to do well, that ought to be what you’re happiest about because if we didn’t have a quarterback we would have a real problem. I just believe Tony is as good as anybody.”
There aren’t many people who will agree that Romo is as good as anybody. Does Jones really believe Romo is as good as Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady?
Apparently so. And Jones insists that he does believe Romo is good enough to bring a title to Dallas.
“I think he plays that position well enough for us to win a Super Bowl, period,” Jones said. “He’s that good. We’ve got to some things differently in other parts of it and Tony has to do his part, too. He’s got to be a leader and he’s got to pull those guys in. But the way he plays quarterback isn’t our problem.”
