Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware Did Not Call Out Quarterback Tony Romo
It seems as though every time a player for the Dallas Cowboys says anything it becomes front page news. This week was no different when it was DeMarcus Ware who was accused of throwing teammate Tony Romo under the bus during an interview with Sirius XM Radio.
“I feel like everybody is deserving to whatever is given to him, but at the end of the day, to me it’s put up or shut up. I’m just being straight-up honest with you.”
Ware’s answer was in response to a question about Romo’s new lucrative extension and how he felt about it. At first glance it appears as though Ware is calling out Romo to earn the big contract he just received, and just about everyone’s had the same take on the situation. However, it’s just not reality since the rest of Ware’s answer continues to go unnoticed:
“Get out there and be productive, and that’s with any player. Whatever they get, they’re deserving of it. You just got to get out there and play and I know he can be and will be the quarterback that is going to be the quarterback that is going to take us to the next level.”
What, in any of that, makes you feel that DeMarcus Ware doesn’t believe in Tony Romo? It’s right there for you in black and white; “I know he can be and will be the quarterback that is going to be the quarterback that is going to take us to the next level.”
Actually the exact opposite of what most people interpreted appears to be true, that Ware believes in Romo as his quarterback. To me it looks as though Ware is talking to the entire Dallas Cowboys team and not just Romo. Jason Witten said the same thing last year, the time for talk is over and the Cowboys need to play better, not just talk about being a better team. That just isn’t as controversial of a story so nit-picking what Ware said and accusing him of calling out Romo seems like a better option because he’s an easier target. It just isn’t the truth.
There are two sides to every story and as usual with Romo; people tend to focus on the negative side.
