Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett accepts QB Tony Romo for what he is, a good player at times, a bad player at times.
What would Garrett change about his QB? Nothing. He's fine just the way he is, Garrett said in so many words to the Dallas Morning News.
“The amazing thing with him is he feels so much and then he can see so much while all of this stuff is going on,” Garrett said. “Just having played the position, I know what a melee that whole thing feels like. These guys are all around you like, ‘Where the hell am I?’ You feel like you’re going the wrong way.
“He just has this great poise about him as an athlete where he can kind of feel what the heck’s going on, and keeps his eyes up and sees what’s going on down the field. It’s pretty unique.”
Garrett loves what Romo does, and he's on board with letting Romo just be Romo.
“If you ever get to a point where you’re strangling him and saying, ‘You can’t do that and you can’t do that,’ I think you’re taking away the essence of what makes him a really special player,... You’re going to have some plays that you don’t like, and you have to live with those, and we’ve had a few of those. But at the same time, you have to allow for the other ones."
“You have to be balanced in how you evaluate it.”
