Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will be more than happy if Tony Romo continues to play the role of game manager, as he did in Sunday’s victory over the Titans.
Romo went 19 for 29 passing for 176 yards and a touchdown, as the Cowboys rode their running game to the 26-10 win in Nashville. DeMarco Murray went for 167 yards on 29 carries, and backups Lance Dunbar and Joseph Randle added another 53, a dominant performance that took a good deal of pressure of Romo’s shoulders.
“I’m probably the one that’s standing right behind Tony and saying, ‘Yes, we like seeing that,’” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via ESPN Dallas. “When you can have that balance--and that’s a word that’s overused, balance, and the other day we had more of a lean to the run – we’ll take it. That offensive line played lights out for us, but when you can have more of a balance, which means that you’re not sitting there with a highway show of passes for Romo, then I think we’re seeing you have a better chance for your defense to be more effective, play less plays, better field position. All of it works together.
“So the way that we played Romo the other day fits me just fine and fits him just fine. It’s called winning, and that’s what we’re here for.”
