Tony Romo says this year’s Cowboys are “most complete team” he’s played on

The Dallas Cowboys are just four days into training camp practices and quarterback Tony Romo already likes what he’s seeing.

In a SiriusXM NFL Radio interview with FOXSports1’s Alex Marvez and co-host Gil Brandt, Romo says this year’s Cowboys team is the “most complete team” he’s been on in his 11 seasons in Dallas. If Romo’s assessment is correct, that would mean this year’s Cowboys team is more talented than the group that posted an NFC best 13-3 record in 2007. Romo’s belief stems from what he’s seen from the players and coaching staff this offseason and is confident in their ability to take a step forward this season.

“We went through a phase where we kind of had to reshuffle some things,” Romo said. “Some of the older guys were going out and newer guys were coming in. Now, we’re kind of getting to where these guys have played and been in the system a little bit.

“I’m excited where this team is at right now. I think this team can compete at a very high level for the next three to five years for sure.”

The Cowboys are looking to return to the postseason for the first time in four years. Romo will have more of a say in the direction of the offense this year and will be the key piece for Dallas if they are able to live up to Romo’s own expectations this season.

    The Oline remains a problem, and now Dline depth as well. Ughhh

    Blah blah blah… Less talk and more show

  3. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Jul 25, 2013 12:44 AM

    The O line is still a complete mess. Is that what Romo meant? All fun and games in preseason until the other teams are allowed to sack you.

    Delusions of Grandeur?

  5. truckenlauten says: Jul 25, 2013 1:10 AM

    Wow, four days into training and he can tell that already. The N F L better give him a drug test. He may have gotten a hold of some of Ryan Braun’s dope. Ya think?

    Thanks Tony; after the day I had, I needed a good laugh.

    31 other QBs say the same thing…EVERY YEAR

  8. peacensapp says: Jul 25, 2013 1:24 AM

    Doesn’t every QB say this about their team every single year?

  9. beerbudsnbevo says: Jul 25, 2013 1:42 AM

    Us Cowboys fans are tired of hearing that in July.

    I wanna hear it in February.

  10. roidsg3 says: Jul 25, 2013 1:44 AM

    Weak 2012 team + a weak 2013 draft makes this team more complete? Smh
    No wonder Jason wants you guys to learn Pythagorean theorem

  11. riverace19 says: Jul 25, 2013 2:45 AM

    Complete for 6 wins

  12. squared80 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:11 AM

    Now if they could just fill that hole at quarterback…

  13. realfootballfan says: Jul 25, 2013 3:14 AM

    On the way to another 8-8 season.

  14. Sports King of this world says: Jul 25, 2013 4:44 AM

    Slow mo

  15. bookofelisha10 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:47 AM

  16. zeeman911 says: Jul 25, 2013 5:50 AM

    Only loser teams need to tell you how good they are….

  17. ridingwithnohandlebars says: Jul 25, 2013 6:47 AM

    Does anybody else sometimes feel like they are just reading the same articles every year.

  18. prmpft says: Jul 25, 2013 6:54 AM

    See everybody? You can’t be elite if your team is incomplete – that was the problem all along – not choking – incompleteness – got it? Yeah, that’s the ticket.

  19. dirtydrynn27 says: Jul 25, 2013 6:57 AM

    please stop it Tony,Dont you think this team is already hyped up and over rated enuff????

  20. gpete1962 says: Jul 25, 2013 7:15 AM

    What a waste of oxygen!!

  21. vibesid says: Jul 25, 2013 7:33 AM

    Sorry, Tony, but your Boys will be bad again this year.

  22. manofaiki says: Jul 25, 2013 7:42 AM

    Romo carried this team to a shot at the playoffs in week 17 last season with essentially NO RUNNING GAME.

    Although the ‘Boys had the #3 overall air attack, their ground game finished next to dead last at #31, just ahead of the Arizona Cardinals.

    That last 8 game stretch, every single Defensive Coordinator Dallas faced had figured out they couldn’t rush the football.

    I believe what has Tony excited is the prospect of having a much better running game this year on the offense.

    They don’t even need to go to a top 10 ground game – just a respectable middle-of-the-pack showing would be an immense improvement.

    Romo won’t have to throw as much and try to do it all in the air, especially in second halves of games where the Cowboys are trailing.

    A better running game might also give the offense more punch in the 1st half. Dallas’ 1st half scoring woes were noticeable. Only 1 time all year did they manage to top 10 pts in a 1st half – when they scored 14 vs the Saints – and still lost.

  23. t8ertot says: Jul 25, 2013 7:47 AM

    Don’t they say this every offseason?

  24. ubepunkedagain says: Jul 25, 2013 7:55 AM

    I swear Romo or someone from the Cowboys says this every year.

  25. greenmeattruck says: Jul 25, 2013 7:55 AM

    “I’m excited where this team is at right now. I think this team can compete at a very high level for the next three to five years for sure.” He than added “but I’ll be there each and every season to choke at the end and the season with a bone-head play, just like my buddy Brett.”

  26. edcfx4 says: Jul 25, 2013 8:00 AM

    As excited as I am to hear this… Just stop talking about building it up before we actually accomplish anything. Let your game play talk for you!

  27. overratedsteelerhater says: Jul 25, 2013 8:02 AM

    to bad he’s on it.

  28. pixelito says: Jul 25, 2013 8:08 AM

    More talented than the 13-3 team that lost in the first round to the 9-7 Giants?

  29. chalkruz1989 says: Jul 25, 2013 8:09 AM

    I wouldn’t expect Tony Romo to come out and say this is the worst team I’ve played on. He’s trying to rally his troops and show his support for this year’s team.

    Better put up though Romo, your job and reputation is counting on it.

  30. ColtsWinColtsWin!! says: Jul 25, 2013 8:24 AM

    Unfortunately, most of his passes are not.

  31. str8cashhomey says: Jul 25, 2013 8:25 AM

    In before the same lame jokes that accompany every cowboy article

  32. flexx91 says: Jul 25, 2013 8:26 AM

    Almost complete. It’s still missing a franchise QB.

  33. wryly1 says: Jul 25, 2013 8:29 AM

    We heard almost the identical things a few years ago when they said they were going to host the Super Bowl – except they were saying those veterans (that are now gone) were the ones who were going to make it happen.

  34. rodge1 says: Jul 25, 2013 8:33 AM

    Romo must be referring to the Cowboys’ golf team.

  35. grizzz2 says: Jul 25, 2013 8:33 AM

    Well now we know what else was in his contract! Jerry the clown knows we Re tired Of his BS. So now he’s weaving it into his own players contracts to sell his Sh@&t Bombs. Tony doesn’t say a damn thing for years and all of a sudden he starts commenting on how great they are? what a joke!!

  36. jlambert58 says: Jul 25, 2013 8:45 AM

    True statement however if they get a QB that can win in the Post Season it will be even more complete.

  37. obmig says: Jul 25, 2013 8:49 AM

    They look like they will be good enough to need a big win at the end of the season to make the playoffs. We all know what happens when Romo needs big wins at the end of the season.

  38. casualcommenter says: Jul 25, 2013 8:50 AM

    So that means there should be no excuses made about a lack of a good supporting cast.

    The Cowboys will go as far (or as short) as Tony Romo takes them.

  39. noring4youstill says: Jul 25, 2013 9:06 AM

    That’s not much seeing as he has only played on average Cowboys teams

  40. mikejsmith32 says: Jul 25, 2013 9:38 AM

    I like Tony Romo, but doesn’t he always say something similar every year?

    I’d like it much better if he said, “This is the most disciplined team I’ve been on.”

  41. nebster21 says: Jul 25, 2013 10:19 AM

    Hasn’t he said this same thing for the past few years.

  42. dbones641 says: Jul 25, 2013 10:58 AM

    I agree with him. This is probably the most complete team we’ve had since I can remember. Hopefully all of the rebuilding over the past few years has paid off. I mean it’s not really necessary to announce his feelings 4 days into the season, but hey I love the confidence. Let’s give em hell this year boys because god dam i’m getting tired of falling just short.

  43. larrydavid7000 says: Jul 25, 2013 11:25 AM

    To all cowgirls fans!!!!!!! That’s not saying much. 4-12 this season. LOL and LMAO.

  44. nananatman says: Jul 25, 2013 11:39 AM

    Heard that last year

  45. rondayne33 says: Jul 25, 2013 11:44 AM

    which is why your team needs a couple days head start on training camp, ya Tony?

  46. belichickdominatedjoemontana says: Jul 25, 2013 12:28 PM

    “Mr. Romo, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
