It was announced earlier this week that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had been named to his fourth career Pro Bowl, but he’s hoping he doesn’t get a chance to play in that game.
It’s not that Romo, or the five teammates who were voted in with him, don’t view the Pro Bowl nod as a high honor; they do of course, but according to Romo, their sights are set on playing a slightly more meaningful game around that time of year--namely, a week after the NFL’s all-star game.
“You’re just so focused on trying to win a championship right now,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It’s obviously an honor anytime your peers and coaches and fans vote for you. Something like that it’s always a very humbling feeling.
“At the same time, I think we all know what our goals are. Hopefully none of us are playing in that football game and we’re all playing in Arizona for the championship. I think that’s what our minds are focused on right now. It’s just getting ready for the second part of the season.”
