The Dallas Cowboys have had good years and a lot of mediocre years over Tony Romo’s tenure. It included a 13-3 season in 2007 where they lost to the eventual Super Bowl Champion New York Giants in their first playoff game. But Romo has labeled this 2013 team as the “most complete” team he has played on in his 11 years with Dallas.

Why? His assessment of the team’s personnel and coaching staff.

“We went through a phase where we kind of had to reshuffle some things,” Romo said Wednesday between training camp practices, via Fox Sports. “Some of the older guys were going out and newer guys were coming in. Now, we’re kind of getting to where these guys have played and been in the system a little bit.

“I’m excited where this team is at right now. I think this team can compete at a very high level for the next three to five years for sure.”

Romo could be feeling a sense of urgency from his lack of success in the postseason in Dallas, but he wouldn’t be alone.

“We’re disappointed in the last two seasons being 8-8,” Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said. “There’s a core group of guys who understand it’s not about what we talk or say. It’s our actions and developing a team that can compete, develop a good chemistry and ultimately execute when we get into tough situations.”

But for all the Cowboys struggle, most of the blame has been thrown on Romo, not Witten.

“He understands what the expectations are not only for this team but himself,” Witten said. “You love going to work each day with a guy who has the same commitment as you. We’ll exhaust ourselves trying to win a championship.”
