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.

  1. 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?

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

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. “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.”

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.”

  13. 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.

  14. “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.”
