The expectations of Tony Romo have always been very high, what with him being the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys and all, and with a new six-year, $108 million contract extension in hand it stands to reason that they’ll only get higher.
After all, that’s quite the show of faith for a quarterback who only has one career playoff victory, a point that former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was quick to point out on Friday after the deal was announced. But according to Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, the team doesn’t blame Romo for their lack of playoff success of late.
“It’s not all on Tony’s shoulders,” Jones said, per USA Today. “He has to do his part, but the team around him as to play better, and we also have to coach better. ...
“We’ve always looked at him as a great quarterback. He wants to win a championship as much as anybody. But it’s on all of us.”
Dallas last won a playoff game back in 2009, when Romo and co. defeated none other than McNabb and his Eagles in the Wild Card round.
