Tony Romo Focused On Getting Better Even After Impressive 2013
An offseason after a 31 touchdown and only 10 interception season, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is focused on the future, and on becoming better. If we’re looking at stats alone, asking for a quarterback to do much more than that and turn the ball over that few times is tough to do.
Sure, you’ll get those crazy years every once in a while where a guy like Nick Foles comes out of nowhere when the defenses don’t know who he is and tosses 27 touchdowns with only two interceptions, but it’s unlikely. The players who throw 10 or fewer interceptions are usually the ones who are great game managers and rely heavily on the run game, like Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith, as well as a rare superstar or two, like Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck.
The NFL just isn’t the same league it used to be, as quarterbacks are asked to lead the way and air it out a whole lot more than they were in the past. Romo is a prime example of that, as he tossed it 535 times last season, but missed the final game of the season as well. Sure, there are quarterbacks who threw it more than Romo, but none were as solid as Romo was across the board.
So, what does it mean when Romo says that he’s focused on getting better? I think we all know what it means.
It means that Romo wants to become that ultimate closer. He wants to avoid those meltdowns in the second half, even if they aren’t his fault. Romo simply is talking about that playoff success that he so badly strives for. While he’s focused on becoming a better football player moving forward, while also being focused on recovering from his back surgery, Romo is set to prove many doubters wrong in 2014; a large part of that may be because of that work ethic that he consistently shows.
The Cowboys will go as far as Romo goes next season, so his statement that he wants to continue to get better is nice to hear for Cowboys fans.
