If that 1-5 record wasn’t enough to convince most fans that the Dallas Cowboys 2010 campaign is, for all intents and purposes, over, the loss of Tony Romo likely was. Crawling out of a 1-5 hole is already highly improbable; doing it without your starting quarterback--well, let’s just be glad we still have the Rangers.
Of course, not everyone is ready to give up on this Romo-less bunch. Leading this improbably optimistic charge is wide receiver Roy Williams, who played with backup Jon Kitna in Detroit, and argues--and we’re not making this up--that the 38-year-old quarterback is as good as Romo.
Granted, it’s not as though Williams, or any other Cowboy will openly bemoan what’s almost sure to be a miserable rest of the season--but Kitna as good as Romo? It's hard to believe that even Williams believes that.
"Tony is our starter, but Jon is just as good,'' said Williams, per the Dallas Morning News. "We are going to work this week in practice so we can get the timing down with the receivers. But I have complete faith in him. I have played with him for three years and I know how good he is.''
