Dez Bryant defends Tony Romo


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo gave them an opportunity to beat the undefeated Denver Broncos an Saturday. He threw for a franchise record 506 yards and 5 touchdowns. The one play that every one remembers though, is the interception at the end of the game that set up the Broncos winning field goal.

That play have a lot of people criticizing Tony Romo. Head coach Jason Garrett even pointed out that Romo should’ve checked down on the play he threw the interception.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones praised Romo after the game and he wasn’t the only one.

“In my eyes, Romo is a fighter,” wide receiver Dez Bryant said, via ESPN. “I don’t think no quarterback in this league takes as much criticism as he takes, and he still goes out there and acts like he hasn’t heard anything. I know he heard it, but he don’t let it get to him. He goes out there and performs the best way he possibly can, and we’re going to forever back him.”

For what it is worth, despite Garrett’s criticism he too supported Romo.

“We have an immense amount of confidence in Tony Romo,” Garrett said. “We think he’s an outstanding player. I think he showed that yesterday. Unfortunately it didn’t end up the way we wanted it to for our football team, but you’ve just got to keep throwing fastballs and keep going, and Tony will certainly do that and our team will certainly do that.”
