There’s no bigger fan of Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo than the team’s owner and general manager Jerry Jones. After all, Jones gave Romo an unprecedented six-year, $108 million contract extension this offseason and he’s been an unwavering public supporter of the Dallas signal caller.
Jones is also well aware of Romo’s less-than-stellar history with the month of December, though, and this week he called for his franchise quarterback to improve on that record.
“I think it's real and I don't mean to be trite,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via ESPN Dallas. “You can probably tie that [into] why we have had disappointments in December. It's hard to build up in this time of the NFL. It's hard to build up enough edge to play at that level during December, so you better be moving or having your arrow going up rather than going down.”
Romo’s record in December is currently 11-15. In that month last year, he went 3-2, including a loss in Washington that sent the Cowboys home for the offseason.
