Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is one of the most heavily scrutinized players in the NFL. His critics had more ammunition after Romo threw a fourth quarter interception during the Cowboys’ week 17 match up with the Redskins that would ultimately decide who won the division and clinched a playoff berth. The interception ended up costing the Cowboys the game.
“Tony is so much on the page with us,” Jones said on the NFL Network, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s naturally a glass half-full guy, so he’s fired up about what we can do. I’ll tell you this, I really would hate to be sitting here talking about getting better, and starting fresh at quarterback and not having Romo. He’s a big part of what we got to go with. He gets criticized and I always say, ‘Good, now tell me who you want me to have there at quarterback? Go pick that guy for me for the next game. Go get a better one right now.’ Do they just come out here and you can just take one home with you?”
Jones does make s good point. It’s very hard to find a quarterback as great as Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, not to mention a player as talented as Romo.
