Dallas Cowboys' Tony Romo: No one can beat me out

When the 16th-overall pick in Thursday night’s draft came up and the Dallas Cowboys went on the clock, many believed they would use the selection on former Texas A&M Aggies’ quarterback Johnny Manziel as an eventual successor to starting quarterback Tony Romo.

Instead, the team select former Notre Dame Fighting Irish offensive tackle Zack Martin to help protect Romo.

However, Romo was never concerned about whether or not the Cowboys selected a quarterback in the draft.

Cowboys’ vice president Stephen Jones appeared on  SiriusXM Radio Wednesday talk about why the team did not take a quarterback and explain Romo’s confidence.

“We did it, everybody had a visit with him along the way,” Jones said, via Calvin Watkins of “Jerry [Jones, Cowboys owner/GM] included, myself included, and told him how this is his football team and how much we think of him and with all the rumors flying around not to pay attention to that. His response is, as you might expect from Tony, it was ‘Well if you decide to, it ain’t going to matter, there’s not anybody out there that can beat me out.’ ”

Romo completed 342 of 535 passes for 3,828 yards with 31 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season.

    its quite telling and down right scary the power the media has, with their twisting of facts and truths they managed to hide the fact that the cowboys defense was the worst in nfl history in 2013 and OH BY THE WAY Romo had a 96.5 qbr with 31 td 10 int, and he happens to own all cowboys records also is the 5th highest rated QB in NFL HISTORY.

    but nope when the media has it in for a guy named(Antonio Ramiro romo) the narrative will be what they want it to be.

    the media hates this guy for being a better than average QB, who has star power and happens to be Hispanic. you see those attributes dont apply to a latino, no they are usually dumb, short, fat, nonathletic, and lazy. thats the stereotype created by the same jews who run the NFL, well Romo is breaking all those stereotypes with authority and that is exposing the zionist media to be nothing but liars and slanderers .

    luckily their are still a few educated fans who can tell the difference between fiction and reality.

    sadly their are even more idiots who live and die by the words of skip bayless.
