What’s the old saying…hope springs eternal? That may not be how many Dallas Cowboys fans (or haters) feel about quarterback Tony Romo, but tight end Jason Witten is just the epitome of that cliche.
After stating last month that he was sure that Romo “understands the urgency to win now”, he has backed up that belief in his quarterback by boosting the much-maligned QB even further.
According to FoxSports.com, Witten was on hand at Texas Motor Speedway Sunday to watch the race and drive the pace car for the Duck Commander 500, when he talked about Romo’s future with the team after his offseason back surgery.
“I think he’s moving good,” Witten said. “He’s right on track to come back better than ever I assume.”
Better than ever? Kind of a broad brush, and in some respects, hard to imagine.
Romo puts up some ungodly numbers in the regular season, and some of them would be hard to top. As for his failures to lead the team to victory when needed, the jury is still out whether it falls more on Romo or on bungling teammates or poor play-calling.
Witten is one of Romo’s favorite targets, so it only makes sense that he would try to make sure that Romo believes he has confidence in him.
What do you think, is the string of current 8-8 seasons and final game implosions more on Romo, or is there a bigger problem? Comment below and talk to us.
