Jimmy Johnson won two Super Bowls as the head coach of the Cowboys. He believes Tony Romo will win at least one Super Bowl as the quarterback of the Cowboys.
Johnson said today that he sees greatness in Romo, even though Romo has been there for only one playoff win in his six seasons as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback.
“The guy is a great quarterback,” Johnson said, via ESPNDallas.com. “You’ve got to win the ring to get it done. I think Romo can get it done. I love Tony Romo. . . . I believe it’s going to happen. I do.”
Although Johnson, Aikman and Staubach won’t find a lot of fans who agree with them about Romo’s greatness, Johnson says that’s because Romo “catches more undeserved abuse” than any NFL player. Deserved or not, the abuse Romo takes is going to continue, unless he proves Johnson right.
