IRVING, Texas Every interception thrown by Tony Romo isn't necessarily his fault. That was a point Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones was trying to make during Thursday's practice at Valley Ranch. Romo has thrown a league-high 13 interceptions this season with nine of them coming in his last two games at Cowboys Stadium. "There's a lot of things that go into that," Jones said. "But we've obviously got really good coaches that know how to evaluate those things. They know we've got to get those out of our game. Our players know we've got to get those out of our game." Jones stopped to chat with media members for about seven minutes on Thursday and Romo was certainly a hot topic. Jones said the franchise's confidence level in Romo is "high" and added that they still feel he has a bright future as their starting quarterback. In regards to how Romo played in the 29-24 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, Jones focused on how the veteran signal caller rallied the Cowboys back from a 23-0 deficit. "I think that game is a perfect example. There's a lot of quarterbacks who would've had a hard time rallying from that type of adversity," Jones said. "You got to 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 some of the Hall of Famers like (John) Elway and (Brett) Favre. It 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." Romo, 32, has yet to play in a Super Bowl. Elway played in five Super Bowls during his career, coming up on the losing end in his first three. Those three defeats came while Elway was in his 20s. He then won his last two at ages 37 and 38. Favre led the Green Bay Packers to the Super Bowl during the 1996 and 1997 seasons. The Packers won when Favre was 28 and lost the next year. "We got a lot of confidence in Tony," Jones said. "Tony has a lot of confidence in himself. He's going to be fine. He's not the problem." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
