ESPN’s Mark Schlereth on Wednesday compared Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway. Schlereth said the two displayed great individual skills, but both needed a solid team around them to win. In Elway’s case, he was unable to lead the Denver Broncos to Super Bowl victories until the team around him was built up with similar talent like running back Terrell Davis, tight end Shannon Sharpe and linebacker John Mobley. It took Elway 14 years to win his first title. But that was after three previous Super Bowl appearances where he and his team came up short.
In contrast, Romo is going into his 11th season and has just one playoff victory under his belt. Still, Schlereth’s point is valid. He believes Romo has the ability to win, but has simply lacked the quality teammates around him to do so. Going into the 2013 season, Dallas’ talent level is at an all time high. Still, questions continue to circle around Valley Ranch concerning their offensive line. The injection of new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and his new 4-3 defensive schemes also have many wondering what kind of learning curve their talented players will have to overcome. How will they adjust and what will the defensive line look like? And will running back DeMarco Murray stave off injury to regain the potential that he showed during his rookie campaign?
But what do you think? Is there enough talent on this team right now to bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Dallas this season?
