Embarking on his first season with the so-called “expanded role” in the Cowboys’ offensive game-planning, quarterback Tony Romo is having a lot of fun.
“I think that’s one of the most fun aspects,” Romo said of his new sense of ownership of the offense, per the Dallas Morning News. “Watching tape, getting film and just grinding over it all week; coming up with an idea and a plan and different plays and different situations; different things that are going to give the defense trouble and going out and execute those things.
“I can’t imagine there being a more fun thing really.”
So what’s different from last season to this one?
“More than anything, just a lot of meetings,” he said. “Just a lot of time as far as going in and coming up with a plan and putting in some of the things that we’re going to feel confident about this week and some of the new stuff that we like.
“I think it’s a good thing when you have experience and you’ve played the position long enough. I think that’s part of the progression that takes shape.”
At $108 million for the next six years, we’d imagine the “progression” Romo speaks of was well worth it.
