Hall of Fame former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman has never been shy about his support of current Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, saying recently that fans don’t appreciate how good Romo is. But Aikman says Romo can’t do it all by himself.
And so, Aikman told the Dallas Morning News, it’s time for the Cowboys to do a better job of protecting Romo.
“They have to shore up the offensive line,” Aikman said when asked about the draft. ”You can’t have a quarterback hit as much as Tony is.”
But the man who will make the decision in the Cowboys’ draft room, owner Jerry Jones, may not agree with that assessment. Jones says Romo can handle a porous offensive line and that he thinks the Cowboys can get by without great pass protection. So Romo may have to make do with a less-than-stellar line in front of him.
