Joe Theismann might not care for the way Tony Romo is playing now.
But the good news for Romo is, the man who signs his checks has his back.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said despite last week’s five-turnover disaster, he’s confident in his quarterback, based on Romo’s track record.
Jones pointed to last year’s Week Four game against the Lions, when Romo threw three interceptions in the second half, two returned for touchdowns, but rebounded to have his best season.
“I like where we are with Romo at quarterback,” Jones said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “No one learns more from his experiences than Tony. This time last year with Detroit in the fourth game, point noted. He came back and never played better. I think the Detroit game had something to do with that.
“If we can get the same kind of response he had last year when he had a downer. If he can come back and do that we will be fine.”
At the moment, it’s the only answer Jones can give.
