It stands to reason that of anyone at Valley Ranch, the man most appreciative of the strides made by the offensive line from last year to this year is Tony Romo. Romo, after all, has spent much of the past few seasons running for his life. This year, he’s feeling more comfortable in his progressions, and the stats illustrate as much.
Through three games, Romo has completed 72 percent of his passes for 771 yards, six touchdowns and just one interception.
“You’re not having to make as many decisions under duress and trying to move the football under those circumstances,” Romo said of the change in the offensive line, per the Dallas Morning News. “The best teams in this league that go on and give themselves a chance late in the year have quarterbacks who are able to get through progressions at a normal speed."
“I think that’s what you’re trying to do,” said Romo.
