Jerry Jones loves Tony Romo, so you can see why he has no problem sticking up for his quarterback at any moment.
Jones held court with the media on his tour bus during the combine, and he shouldered the blame for Tony Romo not having playoff success, and not winning a Super Bowl yet.
“We should have been knocking on the door and we haven’t and I have no excuses, it starts here,” Jones said. “But we have not. I know that to the extent that we have a healthy Romo, our best chance to get back to the Super Bowl is a healthy Romo.”
The Cowboys have won just one playoff game with Romo as quarterback, 2009, and missed the postseason the last four seasons.
In the last three seasons, the Cowboys had a chance to reach the postseason by winning the NFC East in the regular season finale but lost each time.
