Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and current NFL analyst Donovan McNabb is taking some shots at his former team’s rival. When McNabb joined the Fox Sports’ Fix It or Forget It he made some interesting comments about the state of the Dallas Cowboys, specifically quarterback Tony Romo.
McNabb was asked it Romo can be the guy to get the Cowboys over the hump.
“What is getting over the hump?” McNabb asked, via the Dallas Morning News. “What we’ve seen from Tony Romo is turning over the football late in games and can’t win the big one. Tony Romo is not going anywhere. We’re saying fix it by running the football.”
In all fairness, McNabb said it is the whole offense that needs fixing, not just Romo.
“I think this whole offense needs fixing. When I look at this situation, I think you need to decide to run the football. You bring in Bill Callahan to be able to call plays, but it seems like Tony Romo and Jason Garrett are making calls to themselves. Run the football. Utilize the guys you have in the backfield. It’s not about the yards. It’s about the attempts. At the quarterback position, if you’re just sitting back, dropping back all the time, you’re just putting the defense in position to make plays which leads to you turning the football over. Run the football more. Be balanced, and good things can happen.”
