Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones made some comments earlier in the week about quarterback Tony Romo needing to win in December. It is a month that he historically has not performed well in and since 2009, Romo is 7-8 in December and January including 0-2 in season finales that would’ve given them the NFC East championship and a play off berth.
Romo responded to all the December record chatter.
“You’ve got to be able to find a way to win those games,” Romo said, via ESPN Dallas. “That is just part of a football team growing and getting good enough to go win in tough environments. I think our football is continuing to grow and having a great chance to do that. I don’t think the football team cares about December. They care about winning this game. You could put this game in October, January, whatever, and it’s going to feel the exact same to us. It’s just a matter of going out and winning.”
“I think for us it’s just about winning,” Romo said. “I think you guys [the media] add the extra stuff [to] the winning. All that matters is getting the job done. No one cares about anything else. You guys can throw December; you’re great in this; you’re bad in this; you’re dada, dada, dada … But it just doesn’t matter. It’s about getting the job done either way.”
