Not that it should come as any surprise, but Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien has taken notice of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s increasingly impressive play of late, going into the teams’ matchup on Sunday.
“I think he’s playing really well,” O’Brien said, per Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “He’s played at a high level in this league for a long time. He’s got great intelligence. He’s seen a lot. He’s able to change plays at the line of scrimmage. He’s able to read coverage after the snap of the ball. He’s able to get his team into the right play. He’s doing a really good job for that football team.”
Texans linebacker Brian Cushing knows Romo pretty well, and is very aware of the weapons that surround him.
“He’s a very capable quarterback,” Cushing said. “Obviously over the years, he’s gotten some stuff here and there, but I’ve always thought he was a very good quarterback. He can make all the throws. He’s very elusive in the pocket. You see him just get away from a ton of sacks and a ton of pressure. On top of that, he’s throwing to very good receivers. If he can get the ball to those guys, they’re huge playmakers and he’s a playmaker as well.”
