If Roger Staubach is to be believed, the Dallas Cowboys (and Tony Romo, in particular) are in for a pretty nice season in 2012.
Staubach was one of a number of former players on hand for the team’s Silver & Blue debut on Thursday afternoon; while there, the Pro Football Hall of Famer was asked for his thoughts on the current crop of Cowboys, and his answer was an optimistic one. Specifically, Staubach is predicting between 10 and 11 wins for the 2012 Cowboys, and a playoff berth.
“I think this is a really good football team,” Staubach said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It’s probably not enough depth as you would like to have, but if they keep people healthy they should have a great year.”
Staubach remains a big fan of Romo and wonders, like many do around town, how he doesn’t get more respect for what he brings to the position--a skill set that Staubach believes puts him in the very uppermost echelon of NFL quarterbacks.
“How do you not [support Romo]? I don’t get it,” Staubach said. “This guy is one heck of a quarterback. He doesn’t have all the ammunition around him. I’m a big Aikman fan, too, and I think Troy would say hey he had some pretty good guys around him. I know I did. I think this team is stronger and they’re just fortunate to have one of the top five quarterbacks in the NFL.”
