Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is the first true franchise quarterback the team has had since the glory days of Troy Aikman and, like Aikman, he’s putting a nice career together here in Dallas. Of course, the difference between the two can be seen in postseason success.
As you probably know if you’re reading this blog, Aikman had won three Super Bowl Championships by the time he was Romo’s age. Romo has just one playoff victory in his career, and that was back in 2009.
But according to executive vice president Stephen Jones, it’s not Romo’s fault that he hasn’t hoisted the Lombardi Trophy.
“... I think he’d be the first to tell you, anybody would, the only thing missing on his resume at this point is a championship, and certainly that doesn’t sit in Tony’s lap, that sits in our lap, Jerry [Jones] and our family’s lap,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “In terms of the organization, we have to do better at putting better people around him. It falls on our personnel department, the coaching staff and the players around him. It’s a team effort.”
