The Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo confirmed what we all pretty much knew on Wednesday, when he told the Racine Journal-Times that, yes, he would have more of a hand in game-planning this season. And he believes he’s ready for the increased responsibility.
"I think here going forward, I’ll just be more involved in game-planning," Romo said, via the ESPN Dallas. "There are certain things I really believe can help us that we’re going to do some of that. It’s a collective group effort, and I think we’re all going to go in there and go to work."
According to Romo, this wasn’t an overnight decision, but just the latest logical step in his development as an NFL quarterback.
"As quarterback, through the experiences you’ve had,” Romo said, “you just understand what defenses are trying to do and you gain a very high understanding of football concepts and what you want to do.”
2013 will be Romo’s seventh full season as the Cowboys starting quarterback.
