DeMarco Murray: "It's Not All On Romo"

If there was a poster child for the Dallas Cowboys failure’s it is Tony Romo. Whether it’s trips to Cabo on bye weeks in the NFL playoffs, golf in the off-season or interceptions thrown Romo gets blamed for the Cowboys failures.

If you were to pick out an image that summed up the Cowboys failures since their last Super Bowl victory, it’s probably one of Romo sitting on the turf with his hands on his face mask after failing to make it into the end zone in a playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

While Terrell Owens once defended his quarterback Tony Romo, current running back DeMarco Murray is defending his quarterback.

“He will have a great year,” Murray said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t think it’s Tony Romo himself. We have to have guys on the outside stepping up, guys in the front five stepping up and guys in the backfield stepping up. It’s not all on his head. He gets a lot of criticism, a lot of the blame. As individuals, we have a lot of talent and we have to make plays for him.”

“I see it every day,” Murray said. “I see it when no one’s there at 8 a.m. and it’s him and I there working out. When it’s 5 o’clock at night and it’s 120 degrees and he’s outside running and trying to get better. Just his vocal mentality, how he comes in there and commands the huddle, demands that people play up to their expectations, whether it’s practice, a walk-through or a game, he is a leader. He is the leader of our team.”
