News broke this week that Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo will become more involved in the Dallas Cowboys offense per Jerry Jones. All I can say is it is about time. With Romo involved in the offensive schemes similar to what Bronco’s quarterback Peyton Manning but it still from my understanding won’t allow Romo to call his own plays like quarterbacks Tom Brady or Peyton Manning do. But Romo’s involvement more in the offense can only be beneficial to the team and if this is all really true, we as fans should see Romo excel more at the helm of the Dallas Cowboys.
If you think back to last season,Dallas while running the 2 minute offense was more successful in producing plays that worked. The 2 minute drill allowed the Cowboys offense to run smoothly and efficiently down the field and as opposed to being stopped at the red zone the Cowboys at least in my opinion scored more touchdowns than kicked field goals. They actually played like a well-oiled machine during those drills.
Romo was the likely culprit to be calling those plays like any other quarterback in the league during the hurry-up offense. If last season, including all the injuries the Cowboys sustained on both sides of the ball, the Cowboys and Romo were successful during the hurry-up, just sit back and imagine how much smoother the offense will run with more of Romo’s touch and less of offensive coordinator and head coach Jason Garrett’s touch.
The Romo haters will say it’s still not going to be enough and he still plays golf on the off-season and he will still choke in the big games etc. etc. The Romo supporters are probably giddy off their rockers to see him finally getting an opportunity to become more involved with the offense. We all know it would be asinine to say Romo doesn’t have any part of the offense scheme and if that were to be the case, Garrett isn’t as intelligent as a coach as people give him credit for. But the more involved the captain on the field is the better off the offense becomes. It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that a quarterback is more comfortable with plays if they are able to assist in the play-calling/game plan.
Romo if he is truly going to be more involved in the offense will have a stellar year this upcoming year especially if Dallas runs their regular offense like they do their 2 minute offense.
