Speaking at the Dallas Cowboys Annual Kickoff Luncheon at AT&T Stadium on Wednesday, Hall of Fame quarterback and beloved franchise legend Roger Staubach made clear that he’s feeling optimistic about 2015.
“This year I think it is special,” Staubach said, per ESPN Dallas. “Last year ended in kind of a good/bad way, they had a great year, they were 12-4, played tough in the playoffs, so I’m excited. They’ve got the players. They’ve got the best quarterback, Tony (Romo) is on a tremendous roll offensively, and they’re going to have a little more depth on defense, so I’m excited about it.”
A big reason for Staubach’s optimism is the presence of Tony Romo, who will begin the season at the age of 35, but coming off probably the best season of his career.
“I think Tony’s right there with the top quarterbacks in the NFL,” Staubach said. “I’d take him with anybody, he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the league, so it’s just great to see the support he’s getting and last year, they really had a good football team, they were 12-4 and I think this year ... I don’t want to jinx anybody, but I think they’re really going to have a good year.”
