Last week, Pro Football Hall of Famer and Dallas Cowboys legend Roger Staubach delivered a resounding vote of confidence for current Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo. Staubach not only endorsed Romo’s play to date; he said, more or less, that Romo could deliver a Super Bowl to Dallas--that, of the team’s many problems of recent, the starting quarterback wasn’t one.
Staubach’s words vindicate Romo somewhat from the sometimes-scathing criticism he’s received since becoming the Cowboys’ starter way back in mid-season, 2006, a fateful Monday night that began with Drew Bledsoe at the helm but ended with Romo, who’s been a mainstay in Dallas ever since.
For his part, Romo is grateful for his predecessor’s encouraging words.
"Roger is a great quarterback," Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. "He's one of the best players of all time and any time someone speaks highly of you, coming from that kind of credibility, I think it always definitely makes you feel good. Roger is a class act."
