IRVING, Texas Quarterback Tony Romo is "significantly more involved'' in the Cowboys' play-calling and game-planning, owner Jerry Jones says, in part as a result of a consultation Jones had with Hall-of-Fame coach Bill Parcells.
"In visiting with Bill, he thought it was something that we really ought to maybe take advantage of is Tony's ability to see the field, call the plays and make more decisions out there,'' Jones told Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan. "Of course, Bill knows Tony well. He has always had a real appreciation for Romo's approach and his intellect, relative to play-calling, relative to seeing and understanding the game."
Parcells was the Cowboys coach when Romo first came onto the scene as an undrafted free agent from Eastern Illinois. During that same period, Sean Payton now the Saints head coach was on the Dallas staff. Like Romo, Payton was once a quarterback at Eastern Illinois.
"I'd say that Tony has some of the kind of skill that you might see in a Sean Payton," said Jones, who along with head coach Jason Garrett has supervised changes in the decision-making infrastructure of the offense. "Bottom line is this: there's a little bit of that flair for being able to see it and be creative. We were going in that direction (of more Romo involvement). But Bill had positive thoughts about it as well."
