Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, like fellow Hall of Famer Troy Aikman, has long been outspoken in his support of the current Dallas signal caller, Tony Romo. And it appears that Staubach would like to see what Romo could do if he were given the reins to the offense more completely from drive to drive.
At the Sixth Floor Museum on Wednesday, Staubach was honored as a leader in the Dallas business community. He also had time to discuss the current state of the Cowboys, and expressed a wish to see Romo and co. use the no-huddle offense more often.
“If I have an opinion, I would like to see more of the no-huddle offense with Tony Romo,” Staubach said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I see some of these guys today, Peyton Manning , who are changing plays a lot more than we did in the old days and even calling plays at the line of scrimmage. I would have really loved to call plays at the line of scrimmage if you have a no-huddle offense.
“I think Tony is great at the no-huddle offense. He’s smart. He moves around and keeps the team off guard. And the [opponents are] not bringing in their extra guys. So the no-huddle offense really is not fun for the defense and it’s fun for the offense.”
