Jason Witten doesn’t foresee any problem with his pal Tony Romo’s attempt to bounce back from back surgery and actually, he believes the 33- going on 34-year-old could be helped by his age--which serves as a constant reminder that if these Cowboys are going to do anything memorable at all, it’s got to be soon.
“He’s going to come back better than ever,” Witten said, per the Dallas Morning News. “He understands the urgency [to win now]. Most importantly, he’s working his tail off to give us the best chance to do that. That’s all we can ask at this point, get healthy and come back stronger, so we have a better football team.”
Even though Jason Garrett has never made the playoffs as a head coach, Witten says the team still has faith in their head coach and the rest of the staff, which will feature a couple new pieces in 2014, including passing game coordinator Scott Linehan and tight ends coach Mike Pope.
“I think any time you bring new people in there’s a buzz that they bring,” Witten said. “Obviously I’m excited about Pope, a guy that’s just been a tight end guru for a long time. Obviously Scott will have some wrinkles for our offense and it will give us a chance to be better. That’s what it’s all about. Jason’s doing all the things he can. We got to do it on Sundays.”
