Jerry Jones: Tony Romo can carry the Dallas Cowboys


The Dallas Cowboys need to run the table basically to get to the playoffs. That means winning all three games in the remainder of the season including a finale match up against the Philadelphia Eagles. There is some belief in the Cowboys organization that they can bounce back from

“We don’t accept it’s going to be like every other season,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “We’ve got three games left. That’s what we’re focused on. When the season is over, we’ll focus on other things.

“Right now, we have a great opportunity to go out and do something special and win these three games and get on a hot streak.”

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones was asked if quarterback Tony Romo could carry the team. Romo’s December-January record of 12-17 has some doubting him, but Jones remains confident Romo can get the job done.

“I do, and it’s almost within a play that it makes a difference,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “When you feel like you can rely on stops, you know you’re going to have a stop. If you work your offense, if you need to save the play for a rainy day and kick the ball and then plan on stopping them and go again, when that becomes more of a question of than, of course, the importance of keeping the ball, keeping the drive going, making the play while you’ve got your time at bat, making the touchdown, all of that is accentuated.”

    Who does Jones think he’s fooling?

    This, folks, is the very just of the problem with this team: Jones hasn’t invested in building the infrastructure if this team, i. e., the lines on both sides of the ball. So now, he thinks he can belch out even more verbal sleight of hand to the media and we’ll just sit up, shake our heads in agreement with his pontificating, and everything will be just fine!

    I know Jerry doesn’t know a whole lot about Football but I thought at least he knows enough about his own team to know that Romo doesn’t play defense!

    I need to take a course in “Jones Speak”. I don’t understand the last paragraph. What is he saying?

    The man spouts the most ridiculous rhetoric! It’s time you suit up Jerry, and show us what you got!
