Jerry Jones says 'Tony Romo played the best game I've ever seen him play'


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo played the game of his life against the Denver Broncos. To beat the Broncos and the red-hot Peyton Manning the Cowboys certainly would’ve needed that kind of game from Romo.

Romo did well, he completed 25 of 36 passes for 506 yards and 5 touchdowns. The Cowboys even got the ball with about two and a half minutes left in the game and chance to win.

Unfortunately for Romo, most fans will remember only his last pass, an interception. That gave the Broncos the ball back in field goal range and essentially the game.

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones stood by his quarterback and called it the best game he has ever seen him play. Jones also said he still thinks Romo will win a Super Bowl.

    Romo played a superbly great game, period. However, look at something else: . . It was second and 16, let’s say he puts more mustard on the ball and Travathan is only able to tip it away — it would then be third and sixteen. And while the Cowboys had been gaining big chunks of yards all day, still, sixteen yards is no gimme. Therefore, Romo and the rest of us, who were thinking, knew some yardage had to be many on second down, or the Broncos might well be getting the ball near midfield looking at a field-goal to win. Moreover, Romo had about one second before being sacked, if that happens 16 yards becomes 22 yards — not an easy task at all. . . . . . Roma might be snake-bit, but he’s still a heck of a good QB — and after 500 yards and 5 TD’s, he’s not a goat.
