Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did well to create some classic bulletin board material for the Denver Broncos ahead of their clash in Texas on Sunday.Romo, who has thrown eight touchdowns and only one interception this season, called out the Broncos secondary for what he believed to be extremely physical play using "little tricks."
“They grab, they hold, they’ve almost put a lot of pressure on the refs – whether or not they’re going to call the game close or not,”Romo said, via USA Today. “If they get called once or twice, that’s a good thing. But they’re all over guys as far as using the little tricks, I guess you could say, that good linebackers and good secondaries use when they’re playing man coverage.”
For the record, the Broncos secondary has been called for defensive pass interference five times, defensive holding four times, and for illegal contact once so far in 2013. So, Romo may be on to something here. Nonetheless, don't expect this comments to be received well by the Broncos.
