IMAGINE if Romo had a defense capable of consistently holding late leads and closing out games. If your offense takes a late lead, but your starting defense persists on allowing the opposing offense to drive the field and take the lead back and consequently win the game, then Romo is not receiving the help he needs. If your offense cuts into the lead needing just one extra possession to win the game, but your defense does not help you out by delivering the ball back in time for the offense (cough…Falcons and Turkey Day match-up vs the Redskins), then Romo is not receiving the help he needs.
In order for our Dallas Cowboys to return to glory and restore some of the pride that has been slowly evaporating since January 28th, 1996, Jason Garrett and Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones need to fully commit to making this team “Romo Friendly.” They have already spoken of their confidence in Romo and the desire to keep him around for the remainder of his career, but without the necessary help in all facets of the game, Romo’s career will inevitably have a Danny White feel to it.
I am a HUGE Tony Romo fan, and everybody that knows me, knows that much about me. I have had MANY arguments with fellow Cowboys fans on the other side of the Romo fence. They disagree with me on one important question…
Can Tony Romo indeed win a Super Bowl in Dallas?
The answer is YES! However he desperately needs the tools around him to win that trophy we as Dallas Cowboys fans, are intimately connected with. Though he does not fit my definition of “elite,” Tony Romo is still a terrific quarterback within this Dallas system. Hate him or love him, every Dallas Cowboys fan is certainly not shy to share their opinion of him. With Cowboys Nation seemingly divided, what side of the Tony Romo fence do you fall on?
One thing is certain regardless…Our 2013 Dallas Cowboys need to be “Romo Friendly.”
