During the team’s 3-4 start, when Tony Romo was on the wrong side of the touchdown-interception ratio (9-13), many people doubted the Cowboys quarterback.
Now that things have turned around (10 touchdowns and two picks in the last five games), more people are coming around, but any doubts that existed weren’t within the Cowboys administration, according to Cowboys administration.
“I know everybody was critical and Tony was critical of himself,” team vice president and son-of-owner Jones said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “He wants to do better and not have those turnovers. It’s not a good recipe for winning But we have never doubted — not Jerry [Jones] or myself have ever doubted Tony Romo. There has been no one in the organization at the ownership level that has doubted Tony Romo even in games where we have struggled.”
The younger Jones said the reason the Cowboys have won so many comeback games is that they’ve taken on Romo’s personality.
“He is a battler,” Jones said. “There have been other quarterbacks where their championship success has come later in their careers. I think that is probably what is going to happen with Tony because he has all the skills and all the ability in the world to win championships.
“I think it will happen to him like Brett Favre and John Elway who won their championships in the twilight of their careers.”
The Cowboys keep trotting out such lofty comparisons, but Romo needs to win a second playoff game before anyone starts assuming a first championship, much less multiples.
