PLAYERS: Tony Romo
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo took advantage of an opportunity to fire back at his critics during a new Starter ad campaign that he’s been featured in.

“People focus on what we haven’t accomplished,” Romo says in the video below. “They focus on mistakes, the near misses, the heartbreaks. People say we haven’t succeeded. People say we haven’t won a championship. People critique our lives. People are focused on what we haven’t done. That’s what I’m focused on, too.”

I can’t blame Romo for defending himself.  Now he needs to get on the field and prove his doubters wrong even though the Cowboys seem to have a lot more issues this season than they have in the past few years.

Dallas Cowboys end preseason on very high note

Over the past 9 days, the Dallas Cowboys have played two preseason games. Both games truned out to be wins, a 20-19 nail-biter against the St. Louis Rams, and a 30-13 thrashing of the Miami Dolphins in the preseason finale.
