The Cowboys are approaching the cross roads of their season Sunday.
Lose to the Atlanta Falcons and they fall to 3-5, but win and the Boys will be 4-4 with the biggest win of the season bolstering their stretch run.
They will need strong play from their quarterback Tony Romo to finish up strong regardless.
The Cowboys have a few problems right now, but according to NFL.com via Stephen Jones, Tony Romo is not the issue.
“He’s not the problem,” said Jones, who believes Romo is still the team’s future at the position. “He’ll thrive.”
“We have a lot of confidence in Tony,” Jones said. “That game is a perfect example. There’s a lot of quarterbacks that would’ve had a hard time rallying from that type of adversity. Gotta give him a lot of credit. I think he’s going to get better. There’s a lot of quarterbacks that it doesn’t happen right away for them in terms of winning championships and that type of thing. You don’t have to look any further than the Hall of Famers, (John) Elway and (Brett) Favre. The (championships) came late in their careers. They had some of the same issues that Tony’s had. They had some really great games and then they had some tough ones in terms of turning it over and that type of thing. So, we got a lot of confidence in Tony. Tony has a lot of confidence in himself. And he’s going to be fine.”
Well spoken young Mr. Jones.
