Jerry: Frederick "Key" to Romo's Confidence

Dallas selected center Travis Frederick 31st overall in last April's draft



    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had his worst game of the season thus far in the victory over the Redskins on Sunday night, but this doesn’t say much, considering how good he’s been on the year overall. Romo has completed 70 percent of his passes on the year, for 1,693 yards, 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions.

    A great part of the reason Romo’s been so good, owner and general manager Jerry Jones says, is because he’s been comfortable in the pocket; a great part of the reason Romo’s been so comfortable back there, he says, is the presence of first round draft pick, center Travis Frederick.

    “I know this, when you look at just strength, he's anchoring the center and the base of our offensive front there and I can't tell you how much confidence that's given our quarterback,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, per ESPN Dallas. “That was the key, how you get him feeling good.”
