More than a few jaded Cowboys fans won’t want to hear this, but Tony Romo believes he will learn from his mistakes in Sunday night’s 27-24 week one loss to the Jets, and get better because of it.
Those mistakes, for the sake of painful reminders, included a fumble on the three-yard line and an interception that effectively ended the game.
"When you have the ball in your hands, you have to be smart with the ball and I will be, going forward," Romo said recently, per the Dallas Morning News. "That's just the example of a situation that I'll learn from and it won't happen again."
As Jerry Jones pointed out earlier this week, Romo actually was pretty good on Sunday night, aside from those costly, aforementioned miscues. He went 23-for-36 passing for 326 yards, two touchdowns and the interception, for a rating of 101.9. All of these stats mean little, considering that the Cowboys are 0-1, but Romo is quick to point out that the season is still very young.
"This story hasn't been written yet," Romo said. "There's a long road left here and it will be written at some point. I like to think that it's going to end in a very positive way."
